Practices Adopted by Parents of Children with Dysphasia in Inclusive Primary School
Beauregard, France
Exceptionality Education International, v21 n3 p15-33 2011
Parental involvement is essential in the context of inclusive schooling; however, few studies have looked at how parents of children with disabilities become involved in their child's school experience. This study explored the practices adopted by parents of children with dysphasia when their children were integrated into inclusive classes in primary school. Eleven parents took part in semi-structured interviews. Epstein's typology was used to classify the practices that emerged from their responses. The results showed that these practices were interdependent. The intentions underlying any one practice can differ depending on the parents, just as any one intention can be represented in a variety of practices. We identified individual and environmental factors that influence the practices. (Contains 4 tables and 5 footnotes.)
