Development and Implementation of a Three Party Communication Network for Parents, Teachers, and Staff at a Learning Disabilities Center.
Sachs, Frances Greenberg
The practicum report describes the development of a communication network designed to enhance cooperation among parents and staff of a private learning disabilities clinic in Miami, Florida. The program featured a variety of contact follow-up forms, a series of workshops, and periodic student progress reports and follow-up conferences with both parents and teachers. Parent and teacher assessment forms were completed by 12 parents and 10 teachers. Analysis revealed that all parties supported and found useful the communication network techniques. In 10 instances, actual results exceeded anticipated outcomes, specifically in the areas of understanding of forms and procedures and agreement to cooperate and support the learning disabilities program. The clinic management determined that the program was a success based on program assessments. Appendices include: A four-page list of references; parent/teacher workshop assessment forms; communication system monitoring and reporting forms, and samples of remedial log sheets. (CL)
