Health Start: Final Report of the Evaluation of the First Year Program.
Vogt, Leona M.; Wholey, Joseph S.
A demonstration program to build on the health experience in the Head Start Program was launched. A special target group (siblings of Head Start children) was identified, although other economically disadvantaged children from 0 to 6 years of age were also to be served. This project report is divided into seven chapters. Chapter 1 gives the introduction and a summary. Chapter II addresses the evaluation results and methodological issues related to the first year Health Start Program. Chapter III describes Health Starts progress in meeting the program objectives; Chapter IV addresses the guideline requirements; Chapter V shows projects planned and the actual performance of individual Health Start projects. Technical assistance offered to the projects is addressed in Chapter VI; and major conclusions and recommendations are presented in Chapter VII. (Author/CK)
