Family Expectations and Involvement for Youth with Disabilities (September 2005)

This NLTS2 data brief provides a national picture of families' involvement at home and at school in support of their children's education during the secondary school years, and families' expectations for their children's future achievements. Families of secondary-school-age students with disabilities are actively involved both at home and at school. Compared with their peers in the general population, families of students with disabilities are more involved in assisting with homework, and they are as involved, and in some cases more involved, in school based-activities, such as school meetings, class events, parent-teacher conferences, and volunteering activities.
