Project RHISE/Outreach. Program Performance Report, FY 1982.
Children's Development Center, Rockford, IL.
The report details the accomplishments of Project RHISE--Rockford (Illinois) Handicapped Infant Services Expansion--outreach efforts. The year's (1981) activities described include establishment of 10 new sites for replication of the RHISE model, which views parents as primary interventionists for a transdisciplinary approach. The consultancy model, which attempts to provide role release for disciplinary specialists, is described and three stages of the process identified: problem clarification, problem resolution, and limit setting. Components of the RHISE approach (services to children and parents, program organization, and community awareness) are reviewed. "Impact indicators" are presented for six objectives: increasing awareness; stimulating high quality programs; training graduate and undergraduate students; developing and disseminating products; stimulating increased state involvement; and providing a variety of technical assistance.
