Pohuski, Linda; Smith, Susan J.
This final report summarizes the objectives, activities and outcomes of a federally funded program that was designed to provide parent training and early intervention services to children and families in 4 counties of north Alabama. A total of 61 children were enrolled in the project over three years. All were less than 36 months of age and had varying severities of conditions. They came from rural, small town and urban homes, and were from a variety of socio-economic strata. Most children participated in both home visits and group classes. Families received ongoing support and training from staff members, and this was seen by staff members as the strongest aspect of the program. Families' evaluations of the program also reflected general satisfaction with the support and training they received. This report contains overviews of the services provided to children, the services provided to parents, staff development activities, community relations/demonstration/dissemination activities, and program evaluations.
