Parenting and the Exceptional Child. (Includes 45 Transparencies).
The trainer's manual and the 45 associated transparencies are intended for use with small groups of parents of handicapped children. Introductory sections provide information on the evolution of the program, the nature of the program, program goals, utilization of the program, sequencing the visuals, and increasing parent involvement. An article entitled "Behavior Modification for Parents of Exceptional Children" is included. It is explained that the visuals are intended to stimulate open ended discussion, focus on situations and interactions rather than the specific handicaps, and provide the basis for individual counseling. The visual transparencies cover the following problem areas: self help development, parent child interaction, discipline, sibling interaction, parent - parent interaction, parent - other interaction, and the future. Provided for each visual are a description, recommended questions and activities for use with parent groups, and suggested focus with individual parents. (DB)
