White, Karl R.
This second annual report describes activities of and presents Preliminary findings of nine longitudinal studies that are a follow-up of research conducted from 1985 to 1990 by the Early Intervention Research Institute at Utah State University on the effects and costs of providing alternative types of early intervention services to children with disabilities. The nine studies being followed focus on either variations in program intensity, variations in the age of beginning intervention, or variations in program type. The studies are being conducted with various subgroups of children with disabilities (e.g., visually impaired, hearing impaired, severely disabled). The bulk of the report consists of individual reports for each of the nine studies. For each study, information is presented about the alternative forms of intervention being examined and the outcomes for the various measures of child and family functioning. The following studies are presented: (1) New Orleans (Louisiana) Visual Impairment Study #1; (2) South Metropolitan Association/Lake McHenry (Illinois) Intensity Study #2; (3) Arkansas Intensity Study #3; (4) Jordon (Utah) Intensity Study #4; (5) Salt Lake City (Utah) Medically Fragile Study #5; (6) Charleston (South Carolina) Periventricular-Intraventricular Hemorrhage Project (Medically Fragile Study #6); (7) Columbus (Ohio) Medically Fragile Study #7; (8) Des Moines (Iowa) Parent Involvement Study #8; and (9) Utah Parent Involvement Study #9.
