Hanes D. n.d.. Alabama Day Care Health and Safety Program: [Final report]. Montgomery, AL: Alabama Department of Public Health, 30 pp.

Annotation: The goal of this demonstration project was to develop and implement a comprehensive health and safety curriculum in child day care settings to improve the health status of children. A comprehensive educational program was developed and presented in the day care setting with a positive parenting component, a children's component, and a day care worker component. This educational curriculum demonstrated positive changes in child health indicators, day care environment, and safety, and increased knowledge of child development, health, and safety issues on the part of parents and day care workers.

Spack J. n.d.. Reducing Children's Exposure in Family Day Care Settings to Environmental Tobacco Smoke: [Final report]. Boston, MA: Massachusetts Health Research Institute, 29 pp.

Annotation: Environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) has been proven harmful to those who live with smokers, especially infants and children. This project worked with three culturally diverse, lower socioeconomic status communities to develop appropriate materials to educate family day care providers, parents, and children about the importance of a smoke-free environment. In addition, the project built local community networks to continue this commitment after the project was completed. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

Sturner R. 1992. Simultaneous Screening for Hearing, Speech, and Language [Final report]. Durham, NC: Duke University Medical Center, 111 pp.

Annotation: This continuation project followed successful completion of a 3-year project originally designed for 5 years. The overall goals were to (1) develop a means of screening for speech, language, and hearing problems in a child health setting, using no more time than is ordinarily committed to hearing screening alone; and (2) improve current hearing screening procedures in order to be more sensitive to a wider range of audiologic impairments than is possible by routine pure tone screening. The project developed a prototype system called the Pediatric Communication Screening System (PCSS). The system shows clear potential as an efficient means to screen for hearing, articulation, and language. Large scale validation studies of representative populations are still needed to define cut off points for prediction of speech, language and hearing outcomes. In addition, replication of these studies would be needed to confirm findings. It is hoped that after these projects, the Pediatric Communication Screening System could be recommended for clinical use. [Funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau]

McKay C. 1990 (ca.). Minnesota Childhood Injury Prevention Project [Final report]. Minneapolis, MN: Minnesota Department of Health, 10 pp.

Annotation: This project expanded childhood injury surveillance efforts and childhood injury prevention activities within local community health services. Project activities included compiling data on childhood-specific injury morbidity and mortality, creating a coalition of agencies with an interest in childhood injuries, providing assistance in developing local prevention programs, developing a comprehensive approach to reduce scald injuries in children ages birth to five years, and making long-range plans to address other types of injuries and other age groups.
