Notes

Abstract: This study provides factual evidence and testimonials on personal, family, and school issues that grandparents experience as primary caregivers for grandchildren. The research study focused on six components: (1) school efforts to collaborate with grandparents, (2) quality of services, (3) comprehension of grandchild's disability, (4) impact of special education services on family life, (5) availability of support agencies and caregiver training programs, and (6) physical/mental health tendencies of grandparents. Knowledge of the problems grandparents experience is important because special education advocates may gain useful knowledge to expand the success of the partnership with grandparents raising children with disabilities. The ultimate goal of the project is to explore means to contribute knowledge and to increase visibility of the need for research on how educators and other professionals can better assist grandparents with their unique needs in parenting and educating children with disabilities.
