What's Best for the Youngest Among Us?
For two years, a group of Virginia researchers worked to answer two key questions:
- What do the Commonwealth’s youngest, most vulnerable citizens need to succeed in life?
- How can we help them get it?
We look at the answers those researchers found, and invite listeners to chip in too on the topic of Early Childhood Intervention.
