Children's Hospital Medical Center of Northern California, Oakland.
The report presents accomplishments of a program to stimulate new and improved services to high risk/handicapped infants (0-3), with specific emphasis on new intervention and followup services to chronically hospitalized premature babies in intensive care nurseries (ICNs). Following a summary of project accomplishments (including the provision of training and technical assistance at six replication sites) and unanticipated spinoffs, the activities completed are described. The evaluation of five project objectives are addressed: (1) awareness activities designed to show the benefit of developmental services for high risk/handicapped newborns and their families; (2) replication of the model of developmental intervention and followup for high-risk/handicapped newborns; (3) inservice training for nurses, infant developmental specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and others; (4) product development and dissemination; and (5) stimulation of state involvement in services for this population. The bulk of the document is composed of sample project brochures, materials, and parent guides. (CL)
