Parent Involvement in Early Childhood Special Education: Selected Activities for Preschool Teachers.
Carlson, Betty Clark
The manual is designed to provide special education preschool teachers with a guide for parent involvement activities. The guide presents 32 activities divided into three topical areas: (1) communicating with parents (orientation packet, newsletter, school-home notebook, bulletin board for parents); (2) resource activities (field trips, home learning lending library, used book exchange, class cookbook, parent library); and (3) parent meetings and workshops (open house, outdoor education, language development, nutrition). Activities provide information on objectives, materials/personnel/budget, time needed, procedures, evaluation, and followup. Some activities are accompanied by materials designed to be duplicated. An annotated bibliography on parent involvement in early childhood special education is appended. (CL)
