What Teachers Can Learn from Mothers of Children with Autism
Harte, Helene Arbouet
TEACHING Exceptional Children, v42 n1 p24-30 Sep-Oct 2009
Parents can share their unique knowledge of their children's needs, strengths, and interests with educators to facilitate learning in both the home and at school. Parents can communicate their knowledge in a variety of ways. One of these ways is photovoice, or photographs paired with interviews. The purpose of this study is to determine some of the strategies, needs, and goals of parents in engaging children with autism in the home setting. The researchers used the photovoice method to gain information about the decision making and strategies of parents of children with autism. (Contains 1 table and 4 figures.)
