The document presents findings of a task force on services to disturbed children in Illinois which focuses on services relating to early identification and treatment during infancy and early childhood. A review of research showed that services during early childhood can effectively help many individual children toward living more fully functional lives and such services can also lower the need for more intensive and extensive later services. The task force found that services are being delivered effectively to some children in some part of the state; but there exists a lag in the availability of quality programs and in accessibility for all children in need. Recommendations were made in four areas: development of public awareness and education, provision for early detection and referral, ensuring early treatment and followup, and development of an ongoing program of research and evaluation.
