Mathematica is conducting this study to provide new information on preschool special education programs and inform policymakers and educators about promising practices to improve outcomes for preschool children with disabilities.
Mathematica evaluates programs designed to improve the well-being of young children and their families, particularly those at greatest risk in our society. The projects reviewed here illustrate the diversity of themes we address, the range of clients we serve, and the breadth of our early childhood and family research.
