Working with Parents of the Handicapped: A Resource Guide.
Klafter, Marcia B.
The resource guide lists approximately 700 print materials and audiovisual programs (1970-1979) designed to support training efforts for parents of handicapped children. Intended for parent training, for direct parent use, and/or for professional training, the materials are organized into four categories (sample subtopics in parentheses): impact on families, available support services, resource and equipment, and characteristics, diagnosis, and education of 10 exceptionalities; materials to help parents foster their child's development at home; information on parent/school relationships (parents' rights and responsibilities, development of parent involvement programs); and resources for planning for the future (postschool services). Each citation includes title, author, date, price, format information, and a brief description. A final section lists organizations providing services to families with handicapped children. (CL)
