Impact of a Parent Liaison in a Special Day School Setting.
Johnson, Brad; Morris, Linda; McElhiney, Lisa E.
This study of a Kansas program, Project BRIDGE (Building Relationships Is Definitely Good Education), examined the relationship of a parent liaison contact with families of students with emotional disabilities and the students' classroom behavior and academic achievement. Parent liaison logs of 25 students attending a special day school program were analyzed over a seven-year period and parent/guardians were also surveyed. Results indicate that parents were satisfied with the identified parent liaison services and that such activities may have a positive impact on the overall program and student outcomes. (DB)
