A report on evaluation studies of Project Head Start by Lois-ellin Datta( Book )

3 editions published between 1969 and 1970 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Evaluation of Head Start has been based on four sources of information: (1) census surveys of children and families served and programs offered, (2) special research, projects on child development and experimental programs, (3) a longitudinal study of the development of low income children, and (4) a series of national evaluation studies. Available data appear to indicate that Head Start and other preschool programs have an immediate impact, but little is known about why, or under what circumstances optimum results may be obtained. Sustained gains are still being sought. Children who have not attended preschool programs tend to catch up in primary school with attenders, but little is known about why this happens. A planned variation study is in progress comparing children in sponsored Head Start and sponsored Follow-Through classes and children attending "regular" Head Start and "regular" primary schools. Head Start evaluations have tried to locate program variations other than administrative which may affect child development. Considering the evidence now available, the assumptions on which Head Start was based still seem tenable. Research is needed to clarify relationships between program and child variations, and the effects of long-term interventions. (Nh)

Children with hearing impairment a guide for teachers, parents, and others who work with hearing impaired preschoolers( Book )

2 editions published in 1978 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Abstract: The needs of Head Start Program staff in mainstreaming handicapped children with hearing impairments are examined in a manual prepared for teachers and parents of hearing-impaired preschoolers. These children present special challenges to Project Head Start to plan educational activities, learning experiences and materials that permit them to mainstream into classroom with non-handicapped children. Teaching guidelines and techniques are presented to help hearing-impaired youngsters perform as well as normal children of the same age. Resources are reviewed which are available for help outside and Head Start. An appendix outlines test for screening and diagnosis of hearing problems and charts the normal development of the preschool child
