Evidence – Informed Practices to Increase Outcomes for Children (Birth – Age 8)

Three times a year, Early Childhood Initiatives will provide information on topics of interest that demonstrated positive impact for children, families, programs and schools. Evidence-informed practices are those that articulate a conceptual framework which specifies identified outcomes for children and describes activities or strategies. The practices have been evaluated to determine the impact of the strategies on the identified outcomes.
