The purpose of this project was to conduct a literature review on the existing international research and policy papers related to pre-school intervention programs directed at at-risk children. This foundational research became the basis of a later proposal for a Canadian pilot program in early childhood intervention. The intent was to measure the impact of pre-school level intervention programs for at-risk children on student academic success up to grade 8.
This internship resulted in a literature review of existing international research and social policy papers, and a further application to the federal government’s New Economy Initiative for a later pilot program study.
