Gotts, E. E.
This final report reviews and evaluates the work completed by the Early Childhood and Parenting Research Program between June 1, 1978 and November 30, 1979. The first project described is the Home Oriented Preschool Education (HOPE) Follow-Up Study. The HOPE Follow-Up Study was designed to examine the effects of HOPE treatments on children and their families, to explore the relations between home environment and child characteristics, and to develop and refine research tools for use in the remainder of the Childhood and Parenting Research Program. The description of this study includes study location, hypotheses, design, sample selection, school data collection and analyses, preparation of parent interview and validation study, preparation and administration of child interview, and case studies and study of younger siblings. The second area described is the Regional Parenting Surveys work. This work included (1) organizing the interdisciplinary childhood and parent advisory task force, (2) planning for the base sample survey, (3) planning the model parenting program survey, (4) developing data collection instruments, (5) starting to gather data from the base sample, and (6) reviewing parenting rograms. Completion work consisting of three minor ongoing activities related to the prior development of the Aids to Early Learning is also described along with a brief look at staff recruitment and development. The report concludes by citing the major dissemination activities accomplished under this grant. Extensive appendices are included.
