PATH: Parent Activities toward Healthy Self-Determination
Abernathy, Tammy V.; Bingham, Ann
TEACHING Exceptional Children Plus, v6 n1 Article 4 Oct 2009
PATH: Parent Activities toward Healthy Self-Determination was developed as a tool for parents to evaluate their personal status in coping, knowledge of disability related issues, and advocacy. This article describes PATH's five reflective, non-judgmental activities resulting in an opportunity for parents and family's to self-assess progress in developing their child's self-determination. The activities are designed to inform parents and generate ideas and conversations within families and with school personnel. The activities, while scored, are not to be judged or evaluated. Examples from two families with varied levels of knowledge in disability issues are included in the article. Teachers and case managers are urged to share these tools with parents of school-age children with disabilities. (Contains 5 figures.)
