Your nonlearning child : his world of upside-down by Bert Kruger Smith( Book )

The baffling, subtle, and amorphous quality of a learning disability in a child may prove frustrating to the youngster, aggravating to the teacher, and guilt-producing to the parent. This volume will be of value to teachers; it will be useful to volunteers who are beginning to work with children. Parents who read this book will not be tempted to invent problems in their children. If problems exist, parents will be provided with knowledge and guides to sources of help.

Aging parents & dilemmas of their children by Bert Kruger Smith( Book )

3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After an opening series of vignettes which describe the frustrations of adults who care for aging and infirm parents, this pamphlet addresses the issue of aging parents and the dilemmas they pose for their children. In particular, it describes a model entitled "As Parents Grow Older" (apgo) that originated as a service for families of the elderly developed in 1974 by Child and Family Service, Inc. Of Washtenaw County, Michigan, and was later adopted by the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health to begin a pilot program sponsored by the Texas Association of Homes for the Aging (taha). In apgo groups, adults with aging parents or relatives gain practical knowledge that helps them understand their older relatives' changing needs as well as their own feelings and actions toward these needs. The groups also provide an opportunity for adult children to express openly their shared concerns, to recognize alternative strategies for dealing with those concerns, and to acquire the necessary skills to cope with the problems of their aging families as well as to learn of community resources available to them. The design and content of the apgo model is presented, along with a discussion of participants' problems, and a list of benefits to members of apgo groups. The pamphlet concludes with possibilities for the future. (Te)

2 editions published in 1983 in English and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

After briefly noting trends in major changes occurring in American society during the past 20 years, this booklet cites and interprets some specific changes taking place in family demographics during the past decade. While it is argued that general trends in family characteristics and child health and development are beginning to show signs of improving, a number of disturbing social indicators are mentioned that point to serious problems and unmet needs for large segments of the population. The significance of public policy for improved human services is discussed, followed by presentation of a brief case study of one major metropolitan area in the United States, the city of Houston.
