The Teaching Parents Program.
Wallace, Gail R.
The Teaching Parents Program at a center for moderately retarded students (5 to 13 years old) who may also be visually handicapped, multiply handicapped, or emotionally disturbed allows parents to learn principles of behavior modification, task analysis, and data collection while working with a child in the classroom. Materials used in the program are described, and the roles of the teacher and paraprofessional are considered. Initial evaluation of the program has demonstrated minimal parent absenteeism, cooperation of classroom teachers, and transfer of the parents' newly learned skills to use with their own children.
