Establishing the School-Parent Relationship.
Intended for educators who deal with parents of handicapped students, the handbook provides practical suggestions for working with parents not only at times where federal law requires it but through the process of development, implementation, and review of an individualized educational plan (IEP) as well. Eight sections cover the following topics (sample subtopics in parentheses): introduction to the parent's viewpoint; historical and legal perspectives of a partnership with parents; parents and the team approach; parents and the IEP meeting (focusing on major goals, encouraging active parent participation, selecting the appropriate educational intervention); involving parents in the instructional process (home contingencies for school performance, practice of skills at home, examples of programs for use by parents); parents and the annual review (involving the student and conducting and concluding the meeting); resolving conflict with parents; and resources (selected P.L. 94-142--the Education for All Handicapped Children Act--rules and regulations related to parents' rights and responsibilities and bibliography on parent information).
