Proposed Project: Evaluation of Start Printed Page 190the “I Can Do It, You Can Do It” Health Promotion Program for Children and Youth with Disabilities—New—Office on Disability (OD).

Abstract: The Department of Health and Human Services' Office on Disability (OD) oversees the implementation and coordination of disability programs, policies, and special initiatives pertaining to the over 54 million persons with disabilities in the United States. As part of these efforts, the OD encourages youth with physical and cognitive disabilities to adopt a healthier life style that includes good nutrition and increased physical activity. “I Can Do it, You Can Do It” is a health promotion intervention program for children and youth between the ages of 10 and 21 with disabilities that employs a one-on-one mentoring approach to change health behaviors. The program is implemented by sponsoring organizations who work with children and youth with disabilities. The OD will evaluate the effectiveness of the program.

The evaluation will be completed over a two-year period. Respondents will be children and youth with disabilities who are participating in the program. Mentors who work with the participants/mentees will complete a post-program survey. Coordinators from the sponsoring organizations will complete a process evaluation survey. Results will be used to determine if the program has been successful, to report progress, and to make revisions for future administration of the program. There are no costs to respondents except their time to participate in the surveys.
