Improving Cognitive Ability in Chronically Deprived Children
McKay, Harrison; And Others
Science, 200, 4339, 270-8, Apr 78

By school age, the gap in cognitive ability between the treated children and a group of privileged children had narrowed. The effect was greater for the youngest preschoolers entering the program.
