The Effect of Varying Parental Attitudes on the Personality Development and Attitudes of the Handicapped Child
Merson, Martha A.

When I began my project I had one general purpose in mind: To investigate the effects of parental attitudes on the attitudes of the handicapped child towards his disability and on his own performance and goals. I also had two secondary goals in mind: (1) to learn about the various handicaps caused by cerebral palsy and related disorders, and to learn about the programs used to care for and train the deviants as well as the problems involved in carrying out these programs; and (2) To gain more experience in working directly and indirectly with handicapped children as an extension of my previous experience at Plymouth State Home and Training School for retarded and handicapped children. As my experience with Meeting Street School, Children's Rehabilitation Center in Providence, Rhode Island, progressed, I realized that my primary and very general purpose must be both expanded and condensed. I must investigate the current theories about parental attitudes in general. Then I must observe specific cases - specific parents in action - and analyze the behavior of the children of these parents in relation to my observations. In this way I could fulfill the final purpose and goal which I had developed: To investigate the effects of parental attitudes on the attitudes of the handicapped child and to support this with data from both my observations and experiences and data obtained from secondary resources and to relate all of this information to a treatment center where the philosophy is that parents are an integral part of the whole process of training and educating a child with a disability.
