From the Publisher:

This comprehensive text presents a unique, practical blend of strategies for helping regular and special educators, community workers, and other professionals effectively involve parents in their children's education. It reaches well beyond other texts in the field to examine past and current research, special concerns and challenges of working with minority and culturally-diverse families, school- and home-based programs, the importance of good two-way communication, conducting parent conferences, involving parents of children with disabilities, dealing with child abuse and its aftermath, and such topics as advocacy and the rights/responsibilities balance.

From the Back Cover:

  • New annotated Web links are included at the end of each chapter
  • Throughout, recent research citations were added, programs were updated, and content was streamlined to maintain its comprehensive yet applied nature
