Long-Term Follow-up of Healthy Steps Effects for Parents and Children Ages 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 , Year One, and Maintenance of the Healthy Steps Sample for Follow-Up


A six-year national evaluation of the Healthy Steps program is currently under way, with final results expected in November 2002. To gauge the program's long-term impact on families, this project will develop a two-part follow-up evaluation of Healthy Steps children ages 4 1/2 to 5 1/2 years. Two telephone surveys will be designed: one to assess parents' beliefs and practices regarding their child's health care, and a second to learn what parents are doing to prepare their child for school. Both surveys will begin no later than January 2002. Project staff will also continue activities to maintain and track the Healthy Steps sample. Results of the study will enhance scientific understanding of early child development and the value of interventions to promote effective parenting behaviors. http://www.jhsph.edu/
