Parenting and the Exceptional Child. End-of-Project Evaluation Report, July 1, 1974 - June 30, 1976.
Presented is the final report of the 2-year Connecticut "Parenting and the Exceptional Child" project, which provided approximately 100 professionals in the helping fields with training in leading parent groups concerned with managing the exceptional child in the home. Briefly reviewed are the project's five phases from initially familiarizing persons with the project to the project evaluation. Results of the field based evaluative study are given to include that major goals were met as shown in the expressed satisfaction of both parents and trainers. The final section, on the future of the program now that Title III funding has terminated, contains a list of dissemination activities such as possible distribution of materials by the National Center for Media and Materials for the Handicapped, the First Chance Early Childhood Network Closer Look, and the ERIC (Educational Resources Information Center) system. The major portion of the document contains appendixes including summaries of orientation meetings for trainers, lists of agencies and organizations in Connecticut attending the training sessions, the observer rating schedule, the parent and trainer opinionaries, and an evaluative study of the longitudinal effect of the program.
