Interdisciplinary Programming for Infants with Known or Suspected Cerebral Dysfunction. Report of an Interdisciplinary Conference (Santa Monica, California, March 16-18, 1970).
Hensley, Gene, Ed.; Patterson, Virginia W., Ed.
The report of an interdisciplinary conference held at Santa Monica, California (March 16-18, 1970), contains papers on interdisciplinary programing for infants with known or suspected cerebral dysfunction. Following a general overview by R. R. Rembolt, a description of the Meeting Street School Home Developmental Guidance Program (Providence, Rhode Island) is presented by Eric Denhoff and others; Margaret Jones provides a program profile for infants and young children with physical handicaps, and Halbert Robinson examines the implications which cognitive research holds for early care. The psychologist's role in programing for such infants is suggested by C. R. Strother, while Frances Connor presents a curriculum concept for the very young handicapped child. Reports of the discussion groups include guidelines for educational programs and their implementations for infants with cerebral dysfunction. (RD)
