Project: TEACH. Handicapped Children's Early Education Program. Progress Final Report, July 1, 1979 to June 30, 1980.
Alaska Crippled Children & Adults, Fairbanks.
The final report of project TEACH, a project to identify and serve handicapped infants and preschoolers in Alaska, presents the program accomplishments organized by specific objectives within five major goals. The five goals are as follows (sample accomplishments within parentheses): to stimulate infant learning to the fullest extent (25 of 27 enrolled children are currently receiving services); to improve the parenting skills of the parents of children enrolled in TEACH (most parents successfully taught most of the assigned skills to their children); to establish programs to serve children in isolated communities of Central Alaska (18 referrals were received from remote villages); to coordinate services to young handicapped children (evaluation staffings were attended by representatives of nine different community agencies or services); and to provide opportunities for professional development for TEACH staff (weekly interdisciplinary meetings of staff were held). Charts detail program accomplishments. It is noted that continuation funding from the state of Alaska has been procured. (DB)
