Parental Involvement in The Special Education Process.
Hampton, Bethany R.; Fernandez, Maria Christina
The annotated bibliography examines parental involvement in special education. Citations are presented and information examined for eight topic areas: (1) legal rights, (2) theoretical models, (3) parental-school relations, (4) mainstreaming, (5) training, (6) counseling, (7) consumer perspectives, and (8) bibliographies. Entries include general information on parent-school rights and responsibilites while others focus on practical approaches to fostering parent involvement. Some touch upon issues concerning minority parents. Conclusions note the lack of data-based theoretical information and assert that such data are necessary for further policy and practice improvements. (CL)
