Miltenberger, Joan; And Others
The document contains the year-end report for the second year of the 2-year Indiana Parent Training Project, a program to train parents in their rights and responsibilities as guaranteed by laws governing education of handicapped children. Following an introductory section are 10 sections which cover the following program components: public information, individual assistance and training, trainings in St. Joseph County (Indiana), trainings in other areas of the state, Regional Parent Representative (RPR) trainings, the RPR conference, RPR followup training, RPR activities, coordination with other agencies, and dissemination. Noted among conclusions were that workshops offered parents valuable information on the laws, parents' rights, evaluation, and communication techniques; and that locally-based trainers can reach more individuals more readily, especially when support and assistance is available from a central source.
