Involvement of Parents in the Special Education of Their Young Handicapped Children: Developing a Competency-Based Approach.
Macy, Daniel J.; And Others
A report is given of initial efforts to develop a competency-based approach for parents in dealing with and instructing their preschool handicapped children. Parents and professionals ranked a set of identified competencies in parent-child interaction. Results showed that child-related affective areas were generally given higher priority and that parents and professionals showed strong overall agreement in competency priorities. Results of this research are presented in tabular form and discussed relative to current parent involvement practice, application in planning parent programs, and implications for further research.
