The evaluation team is now following up with the families who participated in the National Evaluation. The goals of this follow-up study, as children turn 5 1/2 years old, are to:
- Describe parenting practices for preschool children
- Study ongoing and new effects of the Healthy Steps program as children reach school age
The on-going National Evaluation of Healthy Steps is being carried out with grants from The Commonwealth Fund and The Agency for Health Care Research and Quality.
