Bailey, D., Scarborough, A., Hebbeler, K., Spiker, D., & Mallik, S. (2004). National early intervention longitudinal study: Family outcomes at the end of early intervention. Menlo Park, CA: SRI International.


NEILS was part of a program of longitudinal studies funded by the U.S. Department of Education that were conducted by SRI. This report summarizes family outcomes based on interviews conducted with a primary caregiver around the child’s third birthday. All families had completed or were about to complete participation in early intervention. The report has two primary aims: (1) to describe the outcomes reported by families following their experience with early intervention programs, and (2) to identify a subset of families who were less satisfied with early intervention and describe factors associated with reduced satisfaction.
