The Leadosaurus Task Force: An Educational Project to Identify and Remediate Lead Poisoning in the Muessel School Neighborhood
Hall, Leda McIntyre
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v3 n3 p183-190 2004
The existence and effects of lead poisoning continue to plague young children and their families, particularly children in older inner city neighborhoods. A task force in South Bend, Indiana, developed a parental education program which was implemented at an inner city elementary school. The program involved parent education, events for the children, a blood lead level assessment, and observations of the children's academic and social skills. Conclusions pointed to the importance of personal contact with parents and the continuing need for lead abatement in older housing stock. (Contains 1 table.)
