South Carolina State Dept. of Mental Retardation, Ladson. Coastal Center.
The document contains the final report of the Harleyville (South Carolina) Early Learning Program (Project HELP), a 3 year model demonstration project to serve three young children with developmental delays or special needs, and their families, in a rural, multicultural environment. The first eight sections describe the activities and outcomes of fiscal year 1980-81 in the following areas: direct and supplementary services for children, parent/family participation, assessment of child progress, inservice training for project staff, training for personnel from other programs and agencies, demonstration and dissemination activities, coordination with other agencies, and continuation and replication. A ninth section summarizes the intent of the program, the continuing need for preschool special education in the geographic areas addressed, and those program approaches and aspects which were determined to be most effective and necessary in meeting the defined needs. Appendixes, which make up the bulk of the document, include sample forms, classroom program evaluation reports, parent satisfaction questionnaire responses, and results of South Carolina statewide school readiness testing.
