Toward Community Action. Investments in Prevention. The Prevention of Learning and Behavior Problems in Young Children.
Brownbridge, Robert, Ed.; Van Vleet, Phyllis, Ed.
Investments in Prevention is the report of a conference held in May, 1968, at Asilomar, California. The purposes of the conference were to identify and develop a framework for community action and education programs concerned with "young children at risk" and to develop alternative means for implementing comprehensive, prevention-oriented community services for young children. "Rationale for Community Action," a paper by William Miller, calls for departure from comfortable and conventional programs. "Children at Risk--In All Communities," by David Schwartz, describes high and low risk children, their families, schools, communities, and the functions of the social workers. "Early Childhood Education: Parents-Teachers-Community," calls for continuity in educational experiences and increased parental involvement. "Children at Risk--Developing Models for Comprehensive Prevention-Oriented Services," discusses model systems in which the school is the point of entry. "PACE I.D. Center Concepts--Implications for the Future," suggests extensions of the PACE ideas geographically and conceptually. The PACE I.D. Center is a demonstration project funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. A summary paper is by Robert Kantor. (BP)
