The Goal: Prediction or Prevention?
Bricker, Diane
Journal of Early Intervention, v20 n4 p294-96 Fall 1996
In response to O'Brien et al., who examined predictors of child outcomes among at-risk infants, this article suggests that the goal of prevention and early detection can be more efficiently met if the focus shifts from prediction to ongoing monitoring of children's developmental growth. A three-step model involving ongoing screening, eligibility determination, and intervention is proposed. (DB)
