VCLC implements early child development research projects that lead to improved educational and social outcomes for young children. All early child development research projects have practical applications, which ensure top quality special ed programs and services. Projects include analysis of The Five Ps, autism outcome studies, special ed program evaluations and more.
Early childhood programs, serving young children ages 18 - 48 months, are needed to participate in research studies for the continuing development of The Five P's system. Free project materials, teacher stipends, and children's gifts are available for participants in our Five P’s research studies. If you are interested in participating, please e-mail Janice Friedman at FivePs@vclc.org .
