Infant Development through Enriching Activities at Home. Project I.D.E.A. Final Project Report.
Dall Armi, Lorenzo
This final report contains narrative information and statistical data on the 3-year Infant Development through Enriching Activities (IDEA) program. The project was designed to increase the potential for academic success of high-risk, low-income children by promoting motor, social and language development through home intervention. Approximately 450 Mexican-American children, ages 1-5, were included in the program . Feedback from weekly home visits and from pre- and post-testing was used to determine the mother's and children's progress. Narrative information is presented in a question-answer format accompanied by data tables. Statistical information on parents, children and other project aspects make up more than half of the report.
