It is anticipated that there will be multiple outcomes from this project. Children will improve their total protective factor scores (initiative, attachment, and self control) and decrease their behavior concern scores and experience a smooth transition into school. Parents and teachers will increase their knowledge of practices that promote children's development and families will experience an increase in individualized family support services.
