Childhood Lead Poisoning: Resources for Prevention.
Alliance to End Childhood Lead Poisoning, Washington, DC.
The current approach to dealing with childhood lead poisoning has led to repeated diagnoses of poisoning because such children are treated and then returned to their hazardous environments. This handbook, the third in a three-volume set, provides examples of specific materials currently or recently used in ongoing state and local childhood lead poisoning prevention programs, including educational pamphlets, abatement procedures, and data collection and analysis forms. Some of the materials are accompanied by evaluations from users in order to provide a context for their use, development, and evaluation. Materials are provided in the following areas: (1) definition of primary prevention; (2) needs assessment; (3) interagency materials; (4) program planning; (5) program evaluation; (6) screening and assessments; (7) laboratory testing; (8) inspection/sampling/risk assessment; (9) lead hazard control; (10) compliance and enforcement; (11) clearance; (12) waste disposal; (13) worker protection and training; (14) data collection and analysis; (15) continuing staff and professional education; (16) written materials for adults; (17) audio-visual materials for adults; (18) games, coloring books, etc. for children; (19) audio-visual materials for children; (20) community outreach; and (21) funding resources.
