Mittler, Peter; And Others
The paper, containing 80 statements, addresses the roles and needs of parents regarding their handicapped adolescents' education. Following an introduction is a chapter on the importance of basic attitudes and the danger of some negative parental attitudes. Service needs, covered in a third chapter, are seen to include provision of information, residential and support services, and financial help. Chapter IV looks at obstacles to parent-professional collaboration and offers suggestions for increasing collaboration. The needs and rights of handicapped adolescents is the topic of chapter V. Among conclusions in a final chapter is that parents should be fully involved in the process of assessment and strengths and should be seen as full members of the multidisciplinary team. (SB)
