Evaluation of East Tennessee's Child Health and Development Project.
Banta, Trudy W.; And Others
The Child Health and Development Project (CHDP), a home-based early intervention program operated in six East Tennessee counties, provides well-child clinics, developmental evaluation, individualized early childhood education for disadvantaged children, and training in parenting skills for their parents. The University of Tennessee's Bureau of Educational Research evaluated CHDP services through a six month treatment-comparison group study, record reviews for clients served 18 months, assessment of public opinion in counties served, and measures of staff morale and effectiveness of project management. Analyses of covariance performed on data derived from pre- and post-treatment measures demonstrated that six months of the CHDP intervention produced significant differences favoring the treatment group in IQ, communication skills, and diet. Parents reported that the program increased their understanding of child development and enabled them to teach and manage the behavior of their children more effectively. (Author/MP)
