Chen, Deborah; And Others
This final report describes the federally funded Parents and Visually Impaired Infants (PAVII) Project, which served 28 families in the San Francisco, California, area. The report describes assessment and intervention materials that the project developed, field tested, and disseminated. It lists the infants' types of visual impairment and additional handicapping conditions, extent of project staff contact with each family, transition plans for each infant, and agencies that the project staff worked with to coordinate services. Subsequent sections highlight the main components of the PAVII Project, outlining for each component a rationale, outcomes, and what was learned from the experience. These components include: interagency collaboration, program role, parent/family role, staff development, assessments, play group, parent group, parent education meetings, and family fun days. Appendices contain program evaluation materials. (JDD)
