The major goal of the project is seen to be the successful return of the student to usual school routines and the regular classroom. Specific objectives are said to include developing trust in adults and building competence. Reviewed are aspects of program development including the planning stage, the steering committee, and program expansion. Explained are introducing the 3R unit into a school, staffing of the 3R unit team, and pupil intake, maintenance, and followup. Suggested are classroom strategies to develop goal oriented behaviors. Reported are research findings in the areas of academic growth, intelligence, improved behavior (an average decrease from 12 to one inappropriate behaviors was reported by regular classroom teachers), and return to the regular program for over 95% of children after an average stay of 6 months in the 3R unit.
