Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Research and Intervention Project Report--Year III.
Bricker, Diane; Bricker, William
Presented in the third year report of the Infant, Toddler, and Preschool Research and Intervention Project *Nashville, Tennessee) are discussions on theoretical applications, educational services provided for 75 6-month to 6-year-old children and their families, and teacher training procedures; and 12 research summaries. Discussed is the project's theoretical basis which emphasizes analysis of the child's interactions with his environment and adherence to the sensorimotor theory of J. Piaget for language training. Five projects goals are given such as demonstration that a service and research project can be blended, that intervention is desirable and feasible, and that parents should be included. Described are the following program aspects: the physical setting (Classroom for infants, toddlers, and preschoolers); the school population, comprised of low and middle income developmentally delayed and normal children; classroom schedules; the parent advising component, which involved behavioral modification training and aids such as home visits; and teacher training. Included are the following research summaries: five studies on aspects of Piaget's sensorimotor theory such as object permanence, causality relations, and construction of space; two studies on teachers' and mothers' teaching styles; and five language studies that focus on receptive and expressive vocabulary, syntax assessment, verbal imitation assessment, and children's functioning in five domains.
