Parent Professional Collaboration.
Doyle, Beverly; Guttierrez, Margaret
This document presents one module in a set of training resources for trainers to use with parents and/or professionals serving children with disabilities; focus is on parent professional collaboration. Each training module takes about 2 hours to deliver. The module guide has eight sections: a publicity flyer, topic narrative, overview, trainer agenda, activities, summary, bibliography, and evaluation. Introductory information explains how to use the modules including conducting a needs assessment, planning the training, selecting the training module, implementation, evaluation, and followup. Objectives of this module are: (1) become familiar with the history, philosophy, and definition of parent-professional collaboration, (2) identify the many professionals involved in supporting families of children with disabilities, (3) develop an awareness of the feelings which parents have toward professionals and vice versa, (4) identify the qualities of a collaborator, and (5) develop goals for skill building in collaboration. A bibliography identifies 14 books, magazines, or other resources. Eight separate handouts are provided, including a self-assessment checklist on the qualities of a collaborator. (DB)
