Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1990 
118 p. 

This manual describes the results of a 3-year research project at George Washington University (District of Columbia) called the Assessment as Intervention Project, which explored approaches to parent-sensitive developmental follow-up for prematurely born infants who received neonatal intensive care and their families (N=25). After an introduction, individual chapters address the project's purpose, the shape and focus of the inquiry, insights resulting from parent interviews, implications for practice, and suggestions for professional development. Noted is the project's emphasis on the needs and perceptions of parents in assessment/intervention contacts at 3-month intervals. Appendixes include: a description of the parent-sensitive model used for developmental evaluations; the pre-assessment interview guide; the planning form for assessment/intervention; a checklist for assessment/intervention; a checklist for pre-assessment planning; the assessment report format for the Brazelton Neonatal Behavioral Assessment Scale; the information provided to parents in obtaining their consent for investigational study; post-assessment interview guidelines; procedures for parent interviews at the 9- and 12-month assessments; and final interview questions. Includes 50 references. (DB)
