Home-School Partnerships for the Education of Severely Emotionally Disturbed Students.
Slade, David L.
Research has shown that parents can make significant contributions to the education of their severely emotionally disturbed children if given appropriate guidance by education professionals. To actively engage parents in educational processes, educators need to be skilled in effective communication strategies. Working with parents on one focused issue, such as homework, can maintain a guiding purpose for sustained interaction. As students absorb independent work skills and other positive behaviors, the need for direct parent and teacher involvement may decrease significantly. (21 references) (PB)
