The Preschool Education Program of School District 21.
Lowenthal, Barbara
A preschool intervention program for handicapped children in Wheeling, Illinois provides a noncategorical approach to developing positive self-concepts, which are thought to lead to greater success in learning. Referrals of children at risk for developmental delay come from a variety of sources, including parents, doctors, hospitals, and vision and hearing professionals performing screening in the district. An Individualized Education Program is written for each child in the program, with objectives specified for language, motor coordination and other basic skills. Evaluations of the children and the program are ongoing. Followup of former project students revealed that 36% were involved in regular classes. A component of the program that involves parents features such aspects as parent observation and participation, workshops, and parent study groups. (CL)
