The Efficacy of Early Intervention: Why Are We Still Asking the Question?
Meisels, Samuel J.
Topics in Early Childhood Special Education Quarterly, v5 n2 p1-11 Sum 1985
The paper examines four assumptions of intervention programs that must be clarified before the question of efficacy can be addressed: (1) implicit theory of human development, (2) conceptualization of the specific interventions, (3) how developmental change is measured, and (4) strategies used for selecting program participants. A final discussion highlights the family's role in effective intervention programs. (Author/CL)
