Individual Interventions for Disadvantaged Pre-Kindergarten and Kindergarten Children: A Model Project.
Guidubaldi, John; And Others
This paper reports briefly on a program aimed at preventing the educational disadvantagement of young children through (1) the identification of preschool and kindergarten children who displayed deficits in general cognitive ability; (2) the development of a half-day program providing individually prescribed instruction to each of these children in terms of his/her area of weakness; and (3) the establishment of parent-education workshops. Fourteen children were selected for the program on the basis of recommendations and test scores. University staff members helped teachers and aides select appropriate materials and equipment, establish individual prescriptions, and set up an overall plan for the program. At the end of the 4-month program, all children were post-tested, and results indicated significant improvement. Questions are raised about long-term effects of such instruction and the generality of these findings. (SB)
