The document is divided into papers and remarks on four areas of research needs: child characteristics (remarks by N. Anastasiow), service delivery systems (a paper by S. Cohen), institutional models (remarks by I. Sigel), and personnel development (a paper by W. Northcott). Listed are such top priority research needs identified by conference participants as developing and validating early identification procedures, investigating service delivery systems and institutions to involve hard-to-reach families and children, and defining the specific skills needed by personnel in different settings in varied disciplines.
