Evaluation of Network for Young Children School Readiness
The Network for Young Children (NYC) was initially funded by the All Students Achieve--Parent Involvement and Education (ASAP-PIE) initiative to increase school readiness outcomes in children aged 0-5 through home visiting, parent education, and developmental and health screening. After that funding stream was discontinued, the W.K. Kellogg Foundation provided additional funding to obtain school-entry outcome data. The results of the NYC evaluation suggested that the majority of participating children with developmental delay improved in their developmental outcomes during their time in the program; moreover, parents exhibited increases in behaviors likely to stimulate school readiness.
