The journal issue contains articles on parents, special education, and diagnostic organizations. The first article, "Parental Reactions to a Partnership in Special Education" by M. Feldman and M. Preston, stresses the value of including parents on the special education team particularly in the expression of their feelings toward psychoeducational intervention. The second article, "Parent Education Workshop--A Critique" by P. Melnekoff and R. Meyer, stresses the notion of primary prevention rather than strictly remediation in a discussion of a parent education workshop offered by a mental health/child guidance facility. C. Caputo discusses "Diagnostic Organizations--Strategies for Dealing with Market Unit Pressures" in terms of people changing technologies, exchange relationships, organizational contingencies and constraints, and organizational strategies. An additional brief article by C. Cox is titled "(I.E.P.) Individual Educational Plan or Intellectual Experience in Pathology." (DB)
