A Demonstration of Long Term Follow-Up of a Psychoeducational Intensive Day Treatment Facility for Emotionally Handicapped Children.
To determine the status of emotionally handicapped children who had attended a psychoeducational intensive day treatment facility and to explore procedures for long term assessment, a followup telephone interview was undertaken with 37 parents or guardians of the elementary program clients. It was found that the children are for the most part living at home or in home settings, attending public school, and avoiding legal difficulties. Further analyses indicated that there were significant relationships between parent marital status at the time of attendance and indirect evaluations of the child's current functioning. Feasibility of the methodology and the importance of family environment are discussed. A copy of the survey instrument is appended. (Author/SB)
