The case for parental input in education: an illustration.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There has been much recent debate on the part parents may play in the education of their children. This debate appears to apply equally to special and mainstream education. The following article discusses some of the literature on the area of home-school links and presents an illustration of a boy with autism who, due mainly to his extreme non-compliance, appears to have been incorrectly labelled as severely mentally handicapped. The perseverance of his parents and the open attitude of his present teacher challenged this assessment and the boy began to make good progress.
