Summary

This first year report describes the educational philosophy and organization of a Saturday school program aimed at ameliorating emotional or learning difficulties in 4-year-old children. The evaluation of the project during its first year focused on 42 different product and process objectives and was concerned with the project's impact on children, parents, and staff. The program's goal was to provide a close home-school continuum to reinforce the development of skills that will facilitate later learning: language skills, hand-eye coordination, math and science concepts, auditory and visual discrimination, gross motor skills, the creative arts, as well as social growth. The results, which have been statistically analyzed in the report, clearly indicate that the Saturday School program has been effective with students, parents, and teachers: (1) the students have shown growth in both cognitive and affective areas; (2) the parents have shown increasingly positive modes of perceiving and interacting with their children; and (3) the teachers were found to have increased use of appropriate teaching techniques and interacted more positively with both children and parents.
