This study will examine the association between vocabulary and Executive Function (EF) for children without exposure to typical language by assessing early language and later EF in deaf preschool children with recent cochlear implants. It will address the question of whether children's early vocabulary acts as a precursor to EF when children do not have the ability to hear verbal language.
Utilizing County Evaluation Findings to Build Implementation Capacity and Infrastructure to Support the Triple P System of Interventions in North CarolinaThe NCIC-TP project is a collaborative effort to help counties in NC successfully and sustainably implement the Triple P system of interventions. The project began in 2014 with a two year implementation evaluation of Triple P. Data from that evaluation, along with emerging evidence from implementation science and best practice, is the foundation of the information, learning, and implementation support resources offered by NCIC-TP to NC counties interested in or currently scaling-up Triple P.
Variations in Implementation of Quality Interventions: Examining the Quality-Child Outcomes Relationship in Child Care and Early EducationFPG will partner with MDRC to conduct the Variations in Implementation of Quality Interventions: Examining the Quality-Child Outcomes Relationship in Child Care and Early Education study (the Quality Study). The Quality Study will address important early childhood education (ECE) research and policy by addressing questions about which aspects of ECE quality have the largest impacts on child outcomes and the extent to which those aspects of ECE quality can be improved through intervention.
