The Milwaukee project : preventing mental retardation in children at risk by Howard L Garber( Book )

16 editions published between 1987 and 1991 in English and held by 567 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examines effectiveness of preschool and family intervention in prevention of cultural-familial retardation. It attempts to resolve part of the complex of influences on early intellectual development in those born into seriously disadvantaged environments that could account for the increased risk for certain children to be identified as mentally retarded. Development of 17 subjects from infancy through age 15 is charted in terms of intellectual and related measurements, alongside 18 controls. Chapters include "Introduction to the Problem"; "The Course of Early Intellectual Development"; "Design and Method"; "Assessment of Intellectual Development"; "Learning and Performance"; "Assessment of Language Development"; "Mother-Child Interaction"; "Follow-up Assessment of Development"; "Analysis of the Children's Performance in School"; "Family Risk and Child's Intellectual Development"; "The Children and Their Families"; and an epilogue discussing the role of maternal mediation and methodological factors.

Parental involvement in the vocational education of special needs youth : an evaluation and planning guide by Howard L Garber( Book )

6 editions published between 1991 and 1992 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This technical assistance manual describes school-based outreach strategies that involve parents in preparing youth with special needs for postschool jobs and independence. A model of preventive education is featured which stresses that postschool problems of unemployment and community adjustment can be anticipated and can, therefore, be treated during the high school years. The key to the model is making existing school programs more effective through meaningful parent involvement and increased family support. The manual is designed to train staff of Wisconsin Local Education Agency districts who are responsible for providing vocational education services and to guide the development of model school-based family outreach programs. Individual chapters focus on the need for family involvement, program need and development, program screening and referral, program assessment and implementation, and an agenda for the future. Each chapter has seven parts: section overview, key words, problem scenarios, literature review, findings from Wisconsin research activities, preventive education model, and exercises. Appendixes contain a glossary, a list of approximately 80 references, and descriptions of five relevant tests. (JDD)

An experiment in the prevention of cultural-familial mental retardation by Rick F Heber( Book )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a study of ways of preventing mental retardation in the population of a city slum, surveys were conducted. The major finding was that the variable of maternal intelligence was the best single predictor of the level and character of intellectual development in the offspring. The survey also showed that the lower the maternal iq, the greater the probability of offspring scoring low on intelligence tests. A longitudinal, prospective investigation was made of the determinants of the kind of retardation which perpetuates itself from parent to child in the "slum-dwelling" family. Using maternal iq as a basis for selection of a group of newborns, comprehensive intervention in the social environment was undertaken with 40 newborns of mentally retarded mothers (iq less than 70). The objective of this intervention was to displace all of the presumed negative factors in the social environment of the infant. The age range of the children was about one year, with the oldest being about four years. Results showed that the experimental children at 42 months surpassed the control group on the order of 33 iq points, and had a learning capacity surpassing that anticipated. It is hoped that the data may prove that it is possible to prevent mental retardation in children reared by parents who are both poor and limited in ability. Nine figures illustrate the study. (Db)

The Milwaukee Project Early Intervention as a Technique to Prevent Mental Retardation by Howard L Garber( Book )

2 editions published in 1973 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An intervention project concerned with the education of very young, disadvantaged children in an attempt to prevent intellectual deficits in "high-risk" children is presented. The intervention technique employs an intensive educational program for the very young high-risk child, beginning before six months of age. Using survey data, a maternal IQ was designated the basis for selection of a group of newborns. A two-phase program was initiated to prepare the mothers for employment opportunities and to improve their homemaking and child-rearing skills. An infant stimulation program was also implemented. The program was designed to facilitate intellectual development of very young children. It is concerned with (1) physical location which promotes learning, (2) a staff to manage and arrange instruction for children, and (3) the educational program. Development was assessed by an intensive schedule of measurements, including measures of physical maturation, standardized and experimental measures of developmental schedules of infant adaptive behavior, tests of general intelligence, an array of experimental learning tasks, measures of motivation and social development, and measures of language development. The success of this program requires an active community service program for which there is no previous model. (CK)
Measuring Differential Development in Young Children by Howard L Garber( Book )

1 edition published in 1971 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this study was to investigate the Ivanov-Smolensky procedure as an effective clinical device for the assessment of cognitive development in children under four years old. This procedure, expressly developed for assessing development in children with limited verbal skills, minimizes some of the research problems associated with young children since it requires only that a child respond to simple verbal commands and colored lights by squeezing a rubber bulb. Four groups of children (n=27), varying in age and iq, were formed to test the sensitivity of the procedure to detect differential development. It was expected that if the procedure was sensitive, superior performance would be shown in the form of an increase in regulatory control with increased levels of development. Performance scores were submitted to analysis of variance and then multivariate analysis. Results showed that the Ivanov-Smolensky procedure has promise as a research device. (Aj)
