Helping Parents Acquire and/or Maintain Realistic Expectations of Their Child's Learning Abilities. Mini Practicum Report.
Wray, Kenneth A.
Evaluated with a total of 89 parents was the effectiveness of a structured reporting format in guiding the parent teacher conference so that parents were able to acquire and/or maintain realistic expectations of their learning disabled children's abilities. The form included a section asking parents to explain their goals for the child, a section presenting the pupil's academic strengths and weaknesses in a graphic manner, a section on detailing the child's work habits, and a summary section. Indications of parental growth were observed in their self evaluation responses and their children's improved school performance both of which improved after the parent teacher conferences regardless of whether the reporting form was used. Appended are the results of the teachers' evaluation of the form, a sample reporting form, and a summary of post-conference teacher evaluations. (DB)
