dc.description.abstractIn this study, twenty parents of children with learning disabilities were surveyed to discover their attitudes toward education. The subjects were selected from those eligible and those attending a voluntary support group for parents of children with learning disabilities. It was discovered that parents react differently to the initial diagnosis of a learning disability. The data showed parents felt comfortable discussing their children's progress with school officials and were willing to advocate for their children whenever necessary. However, these parents felt the school personnel needed to communicate more effectively with the parents and attempt to understand the difficulties of raising a child with a learning disability. The data also showed that these parents needed more information on their children's rights, other services available, and information on support groups for parents of children with learning disabilities.
