Aims & Significance

The primary aim of the project is to enable vulnerable children to transition to school developmentally equal to their peers. The research will examine the effects of the EYEP on children’s cognitive, speech, language and emotional development, their physical and mental health, parent-child attachment relationships, and parents’ health and community participation. There is a need for empirical evidence about the effects of this type of early intervention program in Australia.
