Corsini, David; Rothschild, Jennie
Presented is the program evaluation report of the Cheshire (Connecticut) Preschool Program for early intervention with a total of 64 mildly and severely handicapped children between 3 and 6 years old. It is explained that the mother-child project has served children with such handicapping conditions as hearing impairment, vision impairment, cerebral palsy, cleft palate, autism, hyperactivity, language delay, mental retardation, and emotional disturbance. Listed are program objectives (such as giving mothers new insights) and evaluation techniques used. Detailed are characteristics of the children and the evaluation process and sequence. Presented in the major portion of the document are evaluation results which include significantly increased IQ scores, improved behavior ratings, and improved parent ratings. It is concluded that the program has had a dramatic positive impact on both children and mothers. Appended are items such as a classroom observation schedule, a child rating scale, the preschool parent questionnaire, and case histories. (DB)
