The Ninos Especiales Outreach Training Project (NEOTP). Final Report.
Bruder, Mary Beth; And Others
The Ninos Especiales Outreach Training Project was a 3-year federally funded project to provide information, training, and evaluation related to a culturally sensitive, family-focused model of early intervention services for infants with severe disabilities and their families of Puerto Rican heritage. Implementation occurred through three major training components: workshops to provide information, institutes (long-term training) to develop skills in culturally sensitive early intervention services, and technical assistance to enable early intervention programs to replicate service components. This final report contains project goals and objectives, the theoretical and conceptual framework, model description, project results, and project impact. Appendices, which comprise the bulk of the report, include: (1) workshop materials, including objectives, activities, questionnaires, handouts, and reading lists on cultural sensitivity, individual family service plans, family-centered care, transition, interagency collaboration, and transdisciplinary teaming; (2) evaluation materials; (3) a bibliography of approximately 75 items; (4) project evaluation materials; and (5) documents relating to project administration. (Contains approximately 100 references.) (JDD)
