Multi-Agency Project for Preschoolers (MAPPS) Outreach. Final Report.
Akers, Adrienne L.; And Others
This final report describes the Multi-Agency Project for Preschoolers (MAPPS), a project recognized as exemplary by the National Diffusion Network of the U.S. Department of Education. The Project's primary purpose was to assist states (Utah, Idaho, and Wyoming) in addressing the needs of infants and preschool children with handicaps and their families. The outreach model utilized a flexible model of training and technical assistance and a core developmental curriculum, the Curriculum and Monitoring System (CAMS). The Project stressed a child-centered focus for growth and development and a family-centered service delivery approach. This report provides information on MAPPS goals and objectives, its conceptual framework, the MAPPS Model (including the demonstration and outreach models and project objectives/timeline for 1992-1993), evaluation findings, impact, and future activities. Extensive appendices include: the MAPPS Needs Assessment instrument; examples of training and technical assistance evaluations; summary of the MAPPS technical assistance evaluations; samples of CAMS assessments, developmental charts, and curriculum sheets; and a sample workshop handout.
