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)
