ACRES Rural Parent Resource Directory.
American Council on Rural Special Education.
Intended for parents of handicapped children in rural areas, the directory lists a variety of resources available to families. A section on general information lists materials for parents; academic programs for handicapped and gifted children; prevocational and vocational training programs; physical, recreational, and social/emotional programs; and parent and teacher training resources. Parent groups and resources are then identified by state for 30 states. Additional resources are listed under the following headings: national organizations and hotlines; American Council on Rural Special Education (ACRES) Resource exchange; literature and films (on topics such as advocacy and legal rights, recreation, catalogs, and magazines); parents' voices (concerns, suggestions and ideas written by parents for professionals and other parents); and excerpts from the Rural Special Education Quarterly. A final section details the work of the ACRES rural family professional partnerships task force. (CL)
