Longitudinal Studies of the Effects of Alternative Types of Early Intervention for Children with Disabilities. Annual Report for Project Period October 1, 1990-September 30, 1991.
White, Karl R.
This document presents the first of several follow-up studies on the longitudinal effects and costs of providing alternative types of early intervention services to children with disabilities. The nine studies being followed focused on either variations in program intensity, variations in the age of beginning intervention, or variations in program type. The studies were done with various subgroups of children with disabilities (e.g., visually impaired, hearing impaired, severely disabled, etc.). The bulk of this report consists of individual reports for each of the nine studies. For each study, information is presented about the alternative forms of intervention being examined and the outcomes for the various measures of child and family functioning. The following studies are presented: (1) New Orleans (Louisiana) Visually Impaired Project; (2) South Metropolitan Association/Lake McHenry (Illinois) Project; (3) Arkansas Intensity Study; (4) Jordan (Utah) School District; (5) Salt Lake City (Utah) Medically Fragile Project; (6) Charleston (South Carolina) Periventricular-Intraventricular Hemorrhage Project; (7) Columbus (Ohio) Medically Fragile Project; (8) Des Moines (Iowa) Public Schools; and (9) Utah Parent Involvement 1986.
