Comprehensive Training of Personnel and Technical Assistance in Establishment of Home Intervention Program for Families of Infants, Toddlers, and Preschool Aged Children with Hearing Impairment. Final Report.
Barringer, Don; Johnson, Dorothy
This final report describes activities and accomplishments of an outreach project of Project SKI-HI, a family-centered, home intervention model designed to provide training to early intervention professionals serving infants, toddlers, and preschoolers with hearing impairments. In the project, an early intervention professional or a parent advisor makes weekly home visits to families that have an infant, toddler, or preschooler with a hearing impairment and writes and reviews the Individualized Family Service Plan or Individualized Educational Program. The goals of the project are outlined and include: providing a complete delivery system of family-centered intervention; utilizing an innovative awareness and training approach to meet the changing audiences of direct service providers; developing materials which support early interventionists; providing training for local project trainers to enable them to train new professionals; and developing/implementing a system of technical assistance to sites. Individual sections of the report address the project's objectives and activities, conceptual framework, model, replication sites, dissemination activities, training activities, methodological/logistical problems and their resolutions, impact, and future activities. Extensive appendices include a sample newsletter, a SKI-HI training format overview, tables of contents of various SKI-HI publications, and a data report. (Contains 23 references.) (CR)
