Abstract

A comparative analysis was constructed to look at the compliance rates and service delivery rates of children who were enrolled in a center-based early intervention program in relation to children in a home-based early intervention program. The subjects were 29 children between the ages of six months and three years old. Data was collected from each subject's IFSP and attendance record. The subjects were divided into home-based or center-based groups as designated by their IFSP. A compliance rate and service delivery rate was calculated for each group. The results of an independent t-test using a .05 significance level suggest the following: 1) no significant difference was observed between the service delivery rates of the home-based and center-based early intervention groups, and 2) no significant difference was observed between the compliance rates of the home-based and center-based early intervention groups.
