Kentucky's Individualized Kindergartens: A State Network Design for Early Intervention.
Bright, B.; Cansler, D. P.
The KIK (Kentucky Individualized Kindergartens) project, a collaborative project between Kentucky's Department of Education and the Chapel Hill (NC) Training-Outreach project, is designed to serve high risk children. KIK provides early identification of high risk kindergarteners, development of individualized education programs, and implementation of involvement of families. KIK has grown from its beginnings in 1978 to the curent 24 sites maintained in geographically depressed areas of the state. Staff development activities include summer institutes, on-site visits, workshops, and conferences. Program evaluation data illustrating impact through subsequent placement in regular classes for the majority of project participants are appended. (CL)
