Early Intervention Programs with Handicapped Children.
Kysela, Gerard M.; And Others
The paper reviews the literature on early intervention programs with emphasis on programs for handicapped and at risk infants. The definition and goals of intervention for such infants are examined in relation to early childhood developmental characteristics. Studies demonstrating the effectiveness of early intervention for disadvantaged, handicapped, and at risk children are reviewed, providing the basis for a discussion of the crucial components of early intervention programs. Current as well as potential models of intervention are examined in relation to the role of generalization. A system approach to intervention with built in generalization training is suggested as an alternative to current generalization training procedures which have limited applicability for several reasons.
