Development of General Awareness of the Importance of Early Intervention. Baby Buggy Paper No. 172.
McKee, Nancy; And Others
Five papers cover various aspects of the Macomb (Illinois) 0-3 Regional Project, a home based program for rural handicapped and high risk infants and toddlers. The first examines ways to develop public awareness of the importance of early intervention through media and contact with medical, school, and community professionals. The second paper describes a referral system and network, while the third discusses ways to work closely with physicians, nurses, and hospital personnel. (Sample forms are appended.) The establishment of an advisory council is considered in the fourth paper, while placement of children at the conclusion of the infant program is addressed in the final paper. (CL)
