Pati, Susmita; Hashim, Kyleen; Brown, Brett; Fiks, Alex; Forrest, Christopher B.
Child Trends
There is a long-standing lack of integration between the fields of child development and health and health services research. In this brief, we review scientific evidence from all these literatures as they relate to early school readiness, focusing on results from large longitudinal studies. The review does not cover the substantial literature in these areas based on small sample studies. We intend that the results will provide a foundation for research that may lead to the development of practical clinical tools allowing health caregivers to identify young children at risk for early school performance problems, and target them for additional preventive and ameliorative care leading to improved outcomes. Appended are: (1) Two-Tiered Selection of Articles/Data Extraction; (2) Measures of Early School Success; and (3) Examples/Brief Descriptions of Seminal Articles Excluded Due to Criteria. (Contains 4 tables and 1 figure.)
