A Parent Satisfaction Survey for Project PEACH. Report #7963.
A questionnaire was designed to determine parent perceptions of and degree of satisfaction with the services provided by Philadelphia's Prescriptive Educational Approach to Children with Handicaps (Project PEACH). Project PEACH provided diagnostic, referral, and prescriptive educational services for preschool children. Five areas were covered by the questionnaire: testing and evaluation; Individualized Education Program (IEP) and Multidisciplinary Team (MDT) process; services provided; personal involvement of parents; and children's progress. Of the respondents, three-quarters were satisfied with the testing and evaluation; two-thirds were satisfied with the IEPs; 90 percent were pleased with the services provided; two-thirds were able to observe teachers working with their children; and 56 percent were satisfied with their children's progress. The skill areas in which parents believed their children showed improvement were: language; self-help; social; attentiveness; gross motor; and fine motor. (The questionnaire and responses are appended). (MH)
