CDC Study Receives Grant

The Child Development Center's Follow Up Study of children who had been in its therapeutic nursery school has received a $10,000 grant from Kenworthy-Swift Foundation to partially meet the coding costs for the 198 case records in the study data base. In addition the data from the first 60 coded case records have been entered into the computer at CUSSW. William Koerber of the CUSSW computer center is serving as a valued consultant on this aspect of the project.

The other major task, locating and then interviewing the caretakers of these former CDC nursery children, is underway. Slightly more than 50 families have completed extensive questionnaires and have been interviewed. The study is directed by Dr. Alice Frankel.
