Parents Train Parents: A Plan and a Program.
PACER Center, Inc., Minneapolis, MN.
The booklet describes PARENTS TRAIN PARENTS, a project in which parents of handicapped children help other parents understand their rights and responsibilities under state and federal laws. The booklet is intended to help potential adopters modify program aspects for local settings. The model is analyzed in terms of user concerns, program characteristics, minimum standards for replication, and developer-furnished materials (from the PACER Center, Inc.). Five phases of the model are examined: public information and education, workshops for parents of all handicapped children (community-based), workshops for specific groups, advocacy training, and individual advocacy assistance. Additional program aspects addressed are trainees and incentives, necessary conditions for management and staffing, and evaluation. A concluding section cites data on the effectiveness of each of the five phases and considers cost samples. (CL)
