Regional Intervention Project for Preschoolers and Parents. Final Report.
Ora, John P.
During the planning year, services were provided to 40 children and their families who could not be handled elsewhere. Children were considered high risk due to behavior disorders. Services included a preschool class, parent participation, placement and support services with followup, and supplementary services. The program was served by consultants and an advisory council in addition to the staff. Continuous planning included dissemination of information on successes, analyzing problem areas, determining priorities, extending services, and evaluating the project. The project has been observed by students and other visitors, and a number of papers on the project have been presented. Staff personnel were involved in various inservice training activities. The principal method of evaluation was the measurement of child progress in behavioral terms. Future plans include replications, widening the referral base, inservice training for interested professionals, and further demonstration activities. (MS)
