Parent Resource Directory for Parents and Professionals Caring for Children with Chronic Illness or Disabilities. 1st Edition.
Association for the Care of Children's Health, Washington, DC.
The purpose of this directory is to facilitate networking and collaboration among those caring for or providing support services to children with chronic illness or disabling conditions. It is hoped that this directory will enable parents to identify other parents who share their interests and concerns, as well as assist professionals in locating parents whose skills and expertise can assist them in improving community support for children with special needs and their families. The directory, which includes a section for Canada, is organized by state and province under which parents are listed alphabetically. Information provided for each parent includes name, address, telephone numbers, child's or children's disability, group affiliation, health care facility where child receives majority of care, the parent's skills and interests, the parent's experiences in promoting a family-centered approach to health care, the parent's profession, and the year(s) during which the parent has participated in the association's Parent Network meetings. Indexes are provided for parents' names and for disabilities. (VW)
