AHEAD Outreach--Where the Child Is, the Services Are: Home, Child Care, Hospital/Clinical Services to Infants, Toddlers, and Young Children with Disabilities and Their Care Givers. Final Report.
This final report documents the activities and outcomes of the 3-year outreach project AHEAD (At Home & At Day Care). Over the course of the three years, AHEAD Outreach conducted eight AHEAD Trainers' Training Institutes that provided AHEAD trainers with up-to-date content in the early intervention field, training techniques, hands-on experiences, use of multi-media in presentations, and interactive activities using adult learning principles. Fourteen states and one territory were involved and 105 trainers were certified as AHEAD trainers. As a result, AHEAD trainers affected their states and agencies through the high quality of training and improved services they provided to early interventionists and to families, child care providers, and young children with disabilities. The technical assistance activities included monitoring of training, assistance in planning training, loaning training resources, on-site visit feedback and mentoring, and dissemination of "Trainers Tidings." Several appendices are attached that include a project overview, the table of contents of several resource manuals, training agendas, and program evaluation forms. (Author/CR)
