Showing Progress in Early Intervention Programs.
Wilson, Darla; Brodsky, Meredith
This evaluation report of Oregon's early intervention programs describes the Oregon Preschool Assessment System, presents demographic information, and summarizes results of analysis of data on children's progress. It concludes that the infants and children enrolled (2,740 in 1991) are making substantial gains in all areas assessed. These gains occur across age groups, type of program, severity of disability, and level of integration. It recommends review and revision of the Oregon Preschool Assessment System (OPAS). This measure assesses the child's social, communication, cognitive, academic, self-help, and motor skill areas. Demographic information is based on 1991 OPAS data sheets and is analyzed in terms of age groups, type of program, level of integration, and determination of eligibility. Statistics showing student gains are provided for each skill area, for both 1990 and 1991, for each age (0-6), and by type of program. (DB)
