Parents Speak Out.
Early Childhood Bulletin, Win-Spr 1991
This issue of the "Early Childhood Bulletin" highlights some of the major concerns raised by parents during the second national meeting of parent members of state Interagency Coordinating Councils (ICCs) for early intervention, which was held in conjunction with the Partnerships for Progress Conference IV in Crystal City, Arlington, VA, in July 1990. The most pressing concerns parents raised were in the areas of family support, funding for PL 99-457, networking, legislative issues, and parent/professional collaboration. Each of these concerns is described and the recommendations that were generated during the conference are then presented. Parents' reaffirmation of family-centered community-based programs was a central, recurrent theme throughout the conference. Parents presented their vision of being equal partners with the other planners of PL 99-457 and of receiving support for themselves and their families where they live, where they work, and where they play.
