As part of the military initiative, a research project has been developed to determine whether the goals of the partnership between KIT and the U.S Military Child & Youth Programs have been met.
This initiative will take place in community-based organizations. Caregivers from four child development centers will be randomly assigned to a group that receives KIT's training and resources on inclusion and a group that does not. Psychometrically sound instruments and qualitative data will determine impact.
This research sought to identify the perceptions of inclusion, needs of caregivers, perceptions of parents and best practice training in out-of-school time programs.
