The principles and procedural guidelines of the "Precise Early Education for Children with Handicaps" (PEECH) family involvement program are described in this training manual for teachers and parents of preschool handicapped children. Principles of the PEECH approach for involving families in teaching skills to their children are grouped as Positive, Flexible, or Individualized tenets. To clarify the direction of the individual family program, a Family Involvement Planning Guide is included which offers goals and related activities designed (1) to help parents improve parenting skills and (2) to help family members become better teachers of their children. Also included are: sample newsletters, a resource bibliography for parents and staff, a list of books for parents on activities and ideas for play, a list of books for children, a list of cassette tape topics about children for parents, instructions on tape script writing, a list of teaching methods for presenting lessons, and samples of procedures and forms that can be used for planning and documenting contacts and obtaining feedback on the effectiveness and usefulness of the activities in which family members have been involved.
