Responsive Environment Early Education Program (REEEP): First Year Evaluation Study. Year-End Evaluation Report, 1975-76.
Askins, Billy E.; And Others
Formerly the Responsive Environment Program for Spanish American Children, REEEP is an educational intervention program for 3-, 4-, and 5-year-old "high risk" (of low birth weight and with various handicaps) Spanish American children. Goals of REEEP, an Elementary and Secondary Education Act Title III program, are to: prevent school failure with an intervention program which includes early identification and remediation of developmental learning deficiencies and to integrate handicapped children into the regular school program; provide in-service training to selected early childhood and kindergarten teachers and aides employed by various New Mexico school districts; and disseminate information concerning the program. Evaluation of the instructional activities was based on a pre-posttest design using standardized tests which measured language development in Spanish and English, school readiness, and self concept and personality development. In-service training and dissemination activities were subjectively evaluated using site-visits, observations, records, and self-reports by the staff. Major findings included: students made significant gains in language development in Spanish and English and in general school readiness; students developed and/or maintained a positive self concept and substantially developed in various dimensions of personality growth; and an outstanding in-service training program was provided.
