Villalpando, Aimee Hilado; Leow, Christine; Hornstein, John
Online Submission
This research report examines the Baby TALK model, an innovative early childhood intervention approach used to identify, recruit, and serve young children who are at-risk for developmental delays, mental health needs, and/or school failure, and their families. The report begins with a description of the model. This description is followed by an analysis of participant and program data from the Baby TALK, Inc. demonstration program in Decatur, Illinois. The analysis concludes with a discussion of the relevance of the model for early intervention and school readiness, future directions for our research, and best practice implications for the early childhood field. (Contains 4 tables, 2 footnotes, and 1 figure.)
