Tucson Early Education Psychological Services.
Bergan, John R.; And Others
This report describes the Tucson Early Education Psychological Services (TEEPS) program during its third year of operation. TEEPS is based on the position that the quality of psychological services in the public schools can be increased by establishing educational systems in which the functions of psychology in education are embodied in system components rather than in individual practitioners. Activities in TEEPS during the past year have focused on two major areas: (1) the development of a set of evaluation procedures for assessing the overall effectiveness, acceptance, implementation, and efficiency of the program; and (2) a continued effort to refine and broaden the extent of the consultation process. In the consultation process, information is transmitted from the Arizona center through a staff of field representatives to program assistants, parent coordinators, and school psychologists. Through the same channels, feedback is reported to the center and used to provide guidance for future research and development activities. Also in this report are the TEEPS plans for the coming year, which include the projected development of a Computer-Based Information System for use in early childhood education. (CS)
