Native Infant Program: Evaluation Report III.
Mayfield, Margie I.
This report is the third in a series of evaluations of the Native Infant Program, an innovative intervention project designed to promote total development in children from birth through 4 years of age who live in five reserves in the Cowichan Valley near Duncan, British Columbia. The report is organized into three sections. The first briefly describes the program, specifically discussing its objectives and evaluation design. The second and main section includes discussion of the data collected in terms of (1) age and number of children enrolled in the program as of September of 1982; (2) results from the Denver Developmental Screening Test, which was used to assess children's development in the four areas of personal/social, language, and fine- and gross-motor skills; and (3) results of interviews with parents and professionals in the community undertaken to determine attitudes about the program's effectiveness. A summary of the study's major results is provided in the last section. Summaries of the results of the first two evaluation reports are also appended. (MP)
