Clinician and Parent: Partners for Change.
Pope, Lillie
Guidelines are presented for working with parents of learning disabled children in a collaborative clinician-parent program. Parents are explained to need guidance and support in managing the child at home, in dealing with family members and others who don't understand the problem, and in understanding the professional's language. To be effective with parents, the clinician is advised to follow six rules, including using simple language, specifying clear and honest goals for the child, and avoiding contributing to the parents' guilt. Components of the collaborative parent-clinician program are described, such as weekly parent group meetings and parent association sessions. (CL)
