Mayfield, Shirley A.
The report describes the Kona Infant and Child Development Program for developmentally delayed/disabled/high risk children in the rural areas of West Hawaii. The first chapter of the report presents geographic and demographic background information and reviews the services prior to 1978 when the Kona program began. Chapter 2 describes the three major processes of collaboration, cooperation, and incorporation which brought together the Departments of Health and Education, to provide comprehensive services. Chapter 3 evaluates program efforts in terms of 13 major objectives (such as development of individualized education programs, and promotion of parental involvement) as well as lost benefit figures. Chapter 4 discusses program aspects and the underlying reasons for their development. The final chapter considers the future of the project and briefly examines replication factors. (CL)
