"Who You Gonna Call?" [and] New Roles for Parents.
Popper, Barbara K.; Hausslein, Evelyn
Early Childhood Bulletin, Spr-Sum 1994
This special double issue of the "Early Childhood Bulletin" explores issues for parents who are members of Interagency Coordinating Councils (ICCs) for their states' early intervention programs. The first article discusses issues parents may want to consider before they assume new roles in their ICC and in related activities. It also highlights the results of a 1993 survey which shows that opportunities for parent participation at program and policy levels are increasing significantly. The second article discusses ways in which parents can foster parent/professional collaboration by participating in preservice and inservice training opportunities for professionals. References and a list of resources for assistance in developing a curriculum for training are included. (SG)
