The Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project enrolled 3,001 children into a rigorous experimental design study to evaluate program impacts. Children, including those with disabilities or suspected disabilities, had an equal chance of being assigned to the program or control groups. Therefore, it is possible to learn about the effects of Early Head Start for children with disabilities by comparing program to control group children. This report also includes information about service variation within the Early Head Start program group.
