Skills for Parenting the Neurologically Impaired/Learning Disabled Child. Final Evaluation Report, 7/01/80 to 9/30/81.
Tupper, Allison; Tobias, Robert J.
The report describes activities of a project designed to increase understanding and improve management skills of parents of neurologically impaired/learning disabled children. Parents (N=303) registered for a 12 session parent training workshop conducted by a school psychologist or social worker with assistance of special education teachers, and the workshops offered group discussions, sharing, role playing, and behavioral shaping. Objectives were not attained, due perhaps to low attendance and high turnover within groups. Suggestions are made for future parent training approaches, including use of smaller target populations and a wider variety of formats. (CL)
