Van Vleet, Phyllis
The general purpose of this project was to initiate, implement and evaluate a program concerned with developing improved and more effective techniques for the reduction or prevention of learning and behavior problems in children. The children included in the PACE I.D. Center Study were an extreme group as far as behavior and learning problems were concerned. The evaluation of the PACE I.D. program presents an analysis of school based data, including descriptions of instruments, problems investigated, analysis and results of data, and an AML Correlation Study. The analysis of project-based data, including the assessment of family functioning, the summer activity program, a teacher survey, and improvements are given. Results include: (1) the children did show some improvement as they progressed in school, (2) about one-third improved so quickly that they needed little help from PACE social workers, (3) about one-third school success was tenuous, (4) about one-third would continue to require help, and (5) teachers rated the project of value to themselves, the children, their parents, the school, and community. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/KJ)
