Duppong Hurley, Kristin; Huscroft-D'Angelo, Jacqueline
Rural Special Education Quarterly, v37 n4 p251-256 Dec 2018
Supporting the needs of youth with emotional and behavioral disorders (EBD) and their families can be challenging in rural settings. Implementing strategies that take into account for and address barriers in rural settings is important. One strategy to improve outcomes for both students with EBD and their families in rural settings is providing parental support. Parent Connectors is a phone-based parent-to-parent support program designed to improve parental engagement in their child's education and mental health services. Parent Connectors is described in detail along with preliminary outcomes and implications for rural communities.
