Overview

Focusing on the second oldest federally funded early childhood intervention program, begun in 1967, Reynolds (social work, educational psychology, and child and family studies, U. of Wisconsin- Madison) examines the long-term effects of early intervention programs on the education of children living in economically disadvantaged areas and in other environments. Central to his study is a 1986 cohort of nearly 1,200 children, who are followed through age 15 to show the positive educational and social consequences of the Child- Parent Center program. A goal is to provide hard data for policy makers about returns on such an investment. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Editorial Reviews

Choice

"Reynolds's book stands out among the plethora of research devoted to analyzing the effectiveness of childhood development intervention programs in a number of ways. . . . Suffice it to say that the evidence provided suggests that early childhood intervention can have lasting effects on behavior if the intervention is experienced long enough and if the program is comprehensive--meaning that it provides numerous developmental services for both the children and their families. Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and above."—Choice
