Children at Risk.
Isenstein, Vivian R.; Krasner, William
The booklet examines findings from the Vermont Child Development Project (VCPD) concerning the identification of and intervention with preschool children at risk for behavior disorders. It is explained that the VCPD includes epidemiological surveys, high risk family studies, intervention studies, and a follow-along survey. Provided is an example of a comparative developmental risk profile. Justification for early intervention with high risk children is given, and the six modes of intervention used at VCPD are described. Among potential problems cited in working with at risk children are lack of parent cooperation, worker resistance to research methods, and the multiplicity of some children's problems. (CL)
