Louisiana Outreach Project for Preschool Handicapped Children, Ages 3-5, Lincoln Parish, Ruston, Louisiana. Final Evaluation Report for 1979-80.
Andrew, Dean C.
The report details findings and accomplishments of the North Central Louisiana Model Preschool Program for Handicapped Children, a regional cooperative agency and school based model. Personnel, instructional, and behavioral variables are discussed. Program objectives for 1979-80 are outlined, and the evaluation findings for each objective are considered, including findings on such topics as placement recommendations for 6 year olds; parent participation; rating gains made by physically handicapped, speech handicapped, hearing impaired, and multihandicapped children; and awareness activities conducted by the outreach staff. Among project findings are that all the 6 year old children leaving the program were placed in either a regular first grade, special education, or regular kindergarten class; the outreach staff conducted six awareness workshops throughout the state; and seven school districts desired to adopt part or all of the model school components. It is recommended that the model program and successful replications should be continued through the use of state and local funds. (CL)
