dc.description.abstract This study examined the educational expectations of parents of severely handicapped cognitively impaired adult students. Interview questions were developed based on educational research regarding parents of severely handicapped adult students and their educational expectations. Interviews conducted with parents included questions about educational expectations for their students, the degree to which they were satisfied with their level of school involvement, and what they believe is important when building positive relationships between home and school. The responses from this qualitative study were transcribed, verified for accuracy by the participants, and analyzed using a color coding method. Themes drawn from participant responses included parents expecting their adult students to continue learning, be successful in the community, interact with peers, communicate effectively, be as independent as possible, and hold part-time jobs.
