Investments in Prevention, An Activity Group Program for Young Children, Summer - 1967.
PACE I.D. Center, South San Francisco, CA.
Ninety-eight young children with learning or behavior problems participated in a 5-week summer program. The objective of the program was to provide (1) an activity-oriented group experience, (2) continuity of experience between June and September, and (3) a closer relationship with an adult than is possible during the school term. All Pacers, as these children are called, showed gains in independence, recovery and coping strength, and positive self-concept, even though they showed more disturbed behavior than had been anticipated. Withdrawn, fearful, or moody children gained most in self-concept, relatedness to environment, and independence. Aggressive children showed most gain in relatedness to people and recovery and coping strength. The activity group summer program was an effective intervention technique. (DO)
