A Resource Guide to the Very Early Treatment of Handicapped Infants.
Dunst, Carl J.
The resource guide to the early educational treatment of handicapped infants (from birth to 3 years) reviews research providing a rationale for early intervention, compares four common treatment models, examines approximately 40 global or specific curriculums, evaluates appropriate materials and toys, and notes three sources of information on personnel training. Research is reviewed which supports the value of early enrichment, the existence of critical periods for learning, and the lasting effects of early stimulation. Described are four models of infant education: center programs, tutorial programs, home-visit programs, and programs which train groups of parents in intervention techniques. Discussed are curriculum guides for deprived children, children with gross motor involvement, and children with visual and/or aural handicaps. Listed under materials are commercial companies and guides to making infant toys. Personnel training manuals for the various program models are evaluated. A bibliography lists approximately 130 references. (DB)
