The lasting outcomes of our work is of the utmost importance to us. We constantly seek to understand the impact our program has on the lives of Pennsylvania’s students. This way we can better understand our work and improve upon them each year. Like all studies, the integrity of our data is important and so we have worked hard to find independent researchers to analyze our work. Include Me From The Start is fortunate to collaborate with and be independently evaluated by Early Childhood Partnerships in conjunction with the Office of Child Development at the University of Pittsburgh.
The Outcomes of Include Me
