Vasa, Stanley F.; And Others
This paper explores the procedures utilized in developing a program model to assist parents of handicapped students in learning about their roles in enhancing the development of their children's skills and attitudes necessary for the work world. The first section discusses three basic assumptions about parents and their role in education: (1) their concern about their children; (2) their right to be involved in their child's educational program; and (3) their effectiveness as teachers. Questions that parents have about such topics as career education, parental support of the school, career development at home, parental support of their child's job selection and procurement process, and information resources are examined briefly in the next section. The third discusses a program delivery system, including such elements as program goals, duration, resources, and evaluation. Appended materials include six career education objectives for the handicapped child, suggested parent activities, a directory of organizations related to the handicapped, and a fact sheet concerning the problems faced by parents of handicapped children.
