Investments in Prevention: The Prevention of Learning and Behavior Problems in Young Children. Intervention Report I.
Van Vleet, Phyllis, Ed.; Brownbridge, Robert, Ed.
In this paper, the reader can see how the beginnings of organization in one community helped to develop a program focusing on young children. The needs of all young children can be pivotal in marshalling a community's resources toward concerted action. The PACE I.D. Center was set up specifically for early identification and intervention designed to reduce the occurrence of disordered behavior among school children. All children were rated by their teachers on the A-M-L Behavior Rating Scale and randomly assigned to an experimental or control group. Intervention was begun as soon as a child was identified as a member of the demonstration group. The process of intervention is discussed, with respect to the school, home, parents, and the Spanish speaking communities. Teachers comments and student comments are included. The research reported herein was funded under Title III of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act. (Author/KJ)
