The Role of the Family in Child Development: Implications for State Policies and Programs.
Stretch, Bonnie Barrett
This report contains suggestions for state level policy that move away from the deficit model of intervention and toward a policy of continuing support to all young children and their families. It includes information for evaluating programs and deals largely with methods of program implementation in four areas of early childhood: (1) education for parenthood, (2) health services, (3) day care, and (4) services to families with special needs (including families with handicapped children, teenage parents, or child abusing parents.)
