Early Intervention with Handicapped Black Infants from Low Socio-Economic Families: Issues and Concerns.
Johnson, Roberta E.; Griffiths, Vivianne A.
The authors address some of the issues and concerns surrounding the provision of early educational intervention with handicapped Black infants from low socioeconomic families. Problems in providing early intervention services for this population are seen to lie in three major areas--identification and diagnosis of potentially handicapping conditions is often overlooked in Black infants because sometimes their symptoms do not manifest themselves in the same manner as in Caucasian children, there is a lack of availability of free programs for children between the ages of 0 and 3, and many of the Black parents from low socioeconomic families have a poor education and therefore a limited understanding of the need for early intervention.
