The Disadvantaged Child.
Miller, Elsa A.
This report briefly describes a preschool and elementary school program for children who suffer from economic deprivation, cultural disadvantage, and emotional disturbance. During the five years of operation, the program combined funds from the Federal government, teachers from the District of Columbia public schools, and The Episcopal Center for Children, in Washington, D.C. Although the project was originally established as a demonstration and research center, it is now functioning as an on-going service, still in cooperation with public schools. This report deals primarily with the program itself and not with the research elements. The essay is divided into several parts: (1) identification of problem children; (2) staffing; (3) classroom structure; (4) teaching program; (5) activities outside of the classroom; (6) special activities; and, (7) work with the parents. The report concludes that many disturbed children have improved in their self-concept and relationship with others. (JW)
