While many early childhood prevention programs have documented early impacts on key outcomes such as parenting and child development, few studies have examined whether and how these early interventions create long-term change. This study examined the effectiveness of the Early Head Start (EHS) program in preventing child maltreatment from birth to age 15. EHS is a widely implemented program providing supports to low income families with children ages birth-3 years of age. This talk addresses two questions: (1) Does EHS reduce rates of reported child maltreatment? (2) What are the key pathways (mediators) that lead to these reductions?
