Details

The research team is adapting the First Step to Success early intervention program for use with early childhood programs, such as Head Start. This preschool version of the First Step program provides Head Start parents, staff and professionals with a proven intervention option that will: 1) produce a reduction in serious behavior problems such as aggression, opposition-defiance, and other types of  antisocial behavior; 2) substantially improve school readiness, and; 3) improve the target child's critically important relationships with parents, caregivers, teachers, and peers.
