Intentions : « The goals of the present study were to examine: the types of services received by a sample of children displaying emotional and behavioural difficulties (EBD), parents’ awareness of the services received by their children, and the association between the severity of the children’s EBD and parental awareness of services. » (p. 61)
Échantillon/Matériau : « Participants included a sample of 139 children, ages 6 to 12, who displayed EBD as well as their parents and teachers. » (p. 61)
Types de traitement des données : Analyse statistique
« Results indicated that children received primarily academic services and that only two thirds of parents were aware that their children were receiving services. Surprisingly, the lowest level of parental awareness was demonstrated for services children received most often (i.e., academic resources). Finally, parents of children displaying more severe EBD demonstrated a greater awareness about whether their children received services compared to parents of children displaying less severe EBD. These findings have important implications for parental involvement in schools. » (p. 61)
