The document describes research completed by the Kansas Research Institute for the Early Childhood Education of the Handicapped. The institute was designed to help improve identification and intervention methods with children at-risk for handicapping conditions. Activities in four areas of research are described. The first area, developmental guides to intervention, contains research related to the analysis of infant receptive language development and to motor development in infants and severely handicapped preschoolers. Ecological guides to intervention focuses on the child's interactions with parents, peers, instructional materials, and teacher. Assessment guides to intervention, the third area, emphasizes learning assessments of child skills. The final research area, integrative research parameters, outlines procedures for data management and synthesis of results across individual investigations. The report goes on to detail dissemination activities, training, organization and personnel patterns, and the impact of the institute on researchers, practitioners, parents, policymakers, and students.
