Parent Resource Directory. Fourth Edition.
Schmitt, Christopher, Ed.
This directory was produced to help parents of children with special needs and professionals identify one another and form relationships to improve the health care system. The directory contains entries from families throughout the United States and Canada, and is organized alphabetically by state or province, with parents listed alphabetically within each area. Each entry contains such information as the parent name, address, telephone, child's or children's disabilities, organizational affiliations of the parent, care facility used, skills and interests of the parent, experience, related employment, and languages other than English. At the end of the directory are a general alphabetical index of parents, an index of disabilities, and an index of special interests. There is also a list of Parent Training and Information Centers, which are federally funded programs, staffed by parents, that provide information to parents on special education laws. (JDD)
