Analysis of pre and post tests on the Peabody Individual Achievement Test (PIAT), the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, Revised (WISC-R) and the Self Appraisal Inventory indicated that students who had participated in the program for 9 months had higher mean scores in the areas of Picture Arrangement, Object Assembly, and Performance IQ and in General Information and total score on the PIAT. Parents indicated an increase in children's positive attitudes towards school and family. Students met or exceeded the objective of gaining 4 months per academic year in all areas measured except mathematics. Sample objectives and activities corresponding to areas of the WISC-R are provided. (CL)
