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.
Blueprint for Implementing a Statewide System of Evidence-Based Professional Development for NC's Early Education and Care WorkforceThe purpose of this project is to develop a statewide systemic professional development blueprint for North Carolina's early care and education workforce. The blueprint will reflect evidence-based best practices for professional development in the areas of coaching, mentoring, technical assistance consultation, and formal coursework that will support the early care and education workforce and prepare them to meet the developmental needs of participating infants, toddlers, preschool, and school-age children.
