Early Childhood Update, Fall 1995
This newsletter provides a periodic update on the activities of the Early Childhood Research Working Group (ECRWG), organized in early 1995 by the U.S. Department of Education and other federal government departments and agencies to promote interagency cooperation and public-private partnerships in early childhood research. This edition contains five short articles: (1) "Education Reform: Let's Begin at the Beginning" (Sharon P. Robinson) which discusses research on the efficacy of school readiness and early intervention programs; (2) "Early Childhood Research Working Group: The Beginnings" (Naomi Karp) which documents the origins and early evolution of the ECRWG; (3) "Universal Newborn Hearing Screening: A Successful Federal Initiative" (Karl White) which explains the significance of auditory research on hearing screening; (4) "ED Grant for Ready-To-Learn Television" (Joe Caliguro) which discusses grants for school readiness programming; and (5) "Project Begin" (Edward Brann) which describes research on an early intervention program for preschool children and their families. A list of the members of the ECRWG is included. (MDM)
