This study was undertaken to find out the factors which contributed to the difference in attendance and non- attendance of preschool children at a child health conference. It was conducted in an urban-suburban community in southeastern Rhode Island which had a population in 1960, of 14, 750 of whom 10. 5 percent were under five years of age. The sample was limited to eighteen mothers whose infants had been admitted to the child health conference during a three year period. Of these eighteen mothers, nine met the criteria for regular attendance, and nine met the criteria for non- attendance. An interview schedule and a check list of child health conference services for preschool children were developed to collect the data. Mothers in each of the two attendance groups were interviewed in their own homes by the investigator. [TRUNCATED]
