The Health Care/Education Relationship: Services for Infants with Special Needs and Their Families. Proceedings of the HCEEP Topical Workshop (March 16-18, 1981).
Gilderman, David, Ed.; And Others
Thirty papers are presented from a 1981 workshop on the relationship between health care and education for infants with special needs and their families. Following a synopsis of the keynote speech, "Assessment in Early Infancy as an Intervention" by T. Berry Brazelton, three theme speeches are presented: "Building Relationships: Year 1--The Dignity of Risk" (L. Gilkerson); "Building Relationships between the Medical and Educational Communities: What Is, What Was and What Might Be" (J. E. Swanson); and "A Grassroots Approach to Institutional Change" (E. Badger). Papers are then presented on four major topics (sample subtopics are in parentheses): preterm and postterm assessment (the role of communication in infant assessment); intervention strategies for newborns and infants (high risk nurseries, program evaluation, and staff competencies); parent and family involvement (multicultural families, siblings, and theories of maternal-infant bonding); and fiscal, legal, and ethical issues (strategies for insuring the survival of infant programs).
