Early Intervention Services for At Risk and Developmentally Delayed Children below School Age.
Association for Retarded Citizens, Arlington, TX. National Research and Demonstration Inst.
the position statements of the Association for Retarded Citizens address major issues in early intervention for preschool age children with possible handicaps. Among statements offered are that public support should be maintained in maternal and child health block grant and in preschool incentive grants and demonstration programs; that multi-faceted screening programs should be available to all children at birth; that categorical labeling should be postponed until there is adequate proof of a specific condition; that a variety of services should be available to young at-risk and developmentally delayed children and their families; that parents should be afforded the opportunity to become involved in the intervention program; and that services should be coordinated among public and private agencies.
