Methods and Results of an Every-Child Program for the Early Identification of Developmental Deficits.
Jackson, Robert M.; And Others
The report examined a pilot program for the early identification of developmental deficits by a multidiscipline team of psychologists, educators, and medical personnel. The team conducted a community wide project designed to establish contact with and evaluate the developmental progress of all preschool children in a low income rural school district. The initial contacts were home visits by paraprofessionals who evaluated the developmental level of all preschool children through the use of rating scales. Parents and children then attended a Community Clinic staffed by the multidiscipline team which screened children for developmental disabilities or special education needs. Of the 18 preschool children for whom educational intervention was recommended, 14 children were eventually enrolled in either Head Start or Special Education classes. (Author)
