The Parents Helping Parents and Count Me In Projects: Evaluation Report, 1983-1984.
Goldberg, Paula F.; And Others
The report presents 1983-84 evaluative data on two projects sponsored by the PACER Center (the Parent Advocacy Coalition for Educational Rights): a statewide parent training program and a program designed to foster positive attitudes about handicapped persons. The parent training program is analyzed in terms of five levels of activity: public information, general parent workshops, special workshops, advocacy training, and individual information and advocacy assistance. The attitude-change program, Count Me In, includes components of public information, volunteer training, trainer training, and puppet show presentations. The project expanded its handicap awareness program to junior high students. (CL)
