Welfare Reform and Its Effects on the System of Early Intervention.
Harbin, Gloria L.
Journal of Early Intervention, v21 n3 p211-15 Sum 1998
This discussion of the effects on young children with disabilities of the 1996 Welfare Reform Act, also known as the Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act, notes the lack of good data for accurately assessing the service-delivery problem. Stresses the importance of Local Interagency Coordinating Councils in designing early-intervention systems free from the vicissitudes of federal policies. (DB)
