Parent Involvement in Early Childhood Education.
Honig, Alice S.
This document examines existing program models and methods aimed at promoting parental involvement in early child development and education. Included are discussions of issues, research evidence and evaluation techniques pertaining to parent involvement. Descriptions of specific programs show how involvement can be developed through such channels as home visitation, parent group meetings, group care arrangements, community resources, and television programming. Suggestions are made for measuring parent change as a result of involvement programs. Problems often encountered when working with parents and possible solutions to these problems are discussed in detail. Available bibliographies, audiovisual materials, and curriculum guides for parents and those who work with parents are described. (BRT)
