This study examined whether cumulative family risk would moderate the relation between regularity of Head Start attendance and child outcomes. Found that the relation between attendance and receptive vocabulary was moderated by cumulative risk, with children from higher risk families benefiting more. Regardless of family risk, attendance predicted teacher ratings of social competence. Regardless of attendance, cumulative family risk predicted teacher ratings of following instructions. (Author/KB)
