Project UPSTART. Final Report, October 1, 1982-September 30, 1983.
The report examines accomplishments of project UPSTART, an intervention approach for young severely multihandicapped infants and their families. The project's outreach provided assistance at six sites, three of which were new. Outreach accomplishments are evaluated according to six objectives, including stimulation of program development, provision of training, development of project materials, stimulation of state involvement, and involvement with other specific consultative assistance. Outreach accomplishments are described by site, and benefits of project activities are considered in terms of program development, training activities, project materials, and increased national/state/local involvement. Among project achievements are extension of training sites for university students, field testing of the sequenced neuro-sensorimotor program, and on-site demonstrations at replication sites. (CL)
