dc.description Project (M.A., Education (Special Education)) -- California State University, Sacramento, 2010. en
dc.description.abstract Federal guidelines mandate that schools find meaningful ways to communicate with families. One of the most effective means of communication is the home visit. This project uses classroom action research in home visits using the model developed by the Parent/Teacher Home Visit Project to document the effectiveness of home visits and provide a handbook for special education teachers at Vineland Preschool. The handbook is designed to assuage the fears of educators and provide effective tools for using home visits to improve the quality of classroom instruction. This project concludes that home visits are a particularly effective means of engaging parents in the education of their children and are particularly meaningful when educators treat each individual visit as a unique experience. Home visits should be strongly encouraged at all levels and teachers provided tools to train allow them to make use of the information gained during home visits to transform teaching practice in all areas. en
