Explain how different types of interventions can promote positive outcomes for children and young people where development is not following the expected pattern.
Lower income and uneducated parents have a higher risk to have a child who performs poorly on test. However, the federal government had attempted to aid these underfunded and undereducated families. Head Start, a federal preschool program, has the purpose to raise test scores in the long term; however, “it has repeatedly been proven ineffectual.” By observing the in efficacy present in a Head Start class, it is apparent why the program is failing.
This may be for a short period of time or until they are an adult. It stands a challenge for professionals and a commitment is required when planning to meet positive outcomes for the child. For this type of research, obtaining different results from a multiple-choice questionnaire, face-to-face interviews and surveys for all the children will provide data to support children retaining their identity and establishing positive contact with adults and professionals. To illustrate, collecting all this data at the earliest possible stage, will enable vulnerable children to participate in relevant interventions like therapy sessions, CAMHS etc.
Fuller and Strath (2001) conducted a quantitative research study that examined local populations of early education organizations based on the 1990 household census data to report features of the early childhood workforce nationwide. Multiple economic and regulatory forces shaped the population of early education organizations that operated within states and local communities. The median center-based teacher was 34 years of age, reported having completed some college, and was married. The median family childcare home provider had a high school diploma. Fifteen percent of all preschool teachers in urban areas were African American and 8% were Latina.

The families become partner with the children learning to engage, observe, and support it. The families can learn if the children have a disability or a different learning style. The children receive dental checkup and healthy eating pattern. The families can learn more about the children learning and something they did not know. The children will learn any development at Head Start.
The consequences of poverty are long and severe throughout a lifetime. Child poverty merits attention because a substantial body of research links poverty with lower levels of a child’s well-being. For a variety of reasons, when compared with children from more affluent families, poor children are more likely to have low academic achievement, they are more likely to drop out of school, have health, behavioral, language and emotional problems. Poverty affects a child’s development and educational outcomes beginning in the earliest years. These linkages are particularly strong for children whose family’s experience the deep controlling cycle of poverty.
Key Stakeholders Children are key stakeholders in the Head Start Program. The Head Start program helps children in several ways. For example, children learn their basics in education; children also learn socialization skills by interacting with other children within his/her own age group (Castro, Bryant, Peisner-Feinberg & Skinner, 2004). The Head Start Program fosters a set of values to support the overall goal of improving social competence within the family unit and its environment. Single parents are also key stakeholders in the Head Start Program, because they utilize the program to meet child care needs and their children’s educational needs.
In this article, Kristof’s main focus centers around the effects that it has on the children. Despite the first article keeping its argument away from how this could have effects on the children that will be affected, Kristof turns his argument away from the differences surrounding whether students enrolled in Head Start have different results than those enrolled in pre-k, he begins his argument by talking about the long term benefits that Head Start is proven to have. In his article, he explains that students that are enrolled in both, Head Start and Pre-k are statistically proven to have a higher chance of graduating as well as a higher chance of avoiding being placed in a prison system. By stating this argument, he clearly states that he believes that by allowing for universal cause, the long term benefits of the children will be more valuable than how much money people will be taxed for a short period of
Ms. Maloney said that the majority of their students would not receive any type of pre-school education if not for the Head Start center. When asked if she believed that the programs offered through the Head Start profited the targeted groups, Ms. Maloney emphatically stated “yes, children who receive early educational intervention go on to perform better in school.” The U.S Department of Health and Human Services website offers testimony to support this belief. Oscar Dominguez writes this; “Head Start has offset many of the challenges I faced early in my life, including a father in prison and a mother on welfare raising two boys in public housing. With a hand up from programs like Head Start, I was able to graduate near the top of my Texas public high school class, from Stanford University, and from the Master in Business Administration program at San Francisco State.
Financially insecure families are unable to provide pre-kindergarten education to their children. This starts these children educationally behind high-income household students. According to New York Times Sabrina Tavernise, a highly regarded journalist, “...wealthy parents invest more time and money than ever before in their children… while lower-income families are increasingly stretched for time and resources.” A factor that keeps economically unstable families from being
Children who grow up in poverty are faced with a series of issues which impact their education and social atmosphere. In both the school and home setting these children lack the proper resources which they need to succeed academically. Across the country, people have begun creating programs which aim to help children in poverty succeed, despite their socioeconomic status. These programs range from after-school reading, tutoring services, charter schools, and free summer programs. All of these programs provide children with extra academic help which they may not be receiving in school or at home.

Head Start is a nonprofit organization that is federal funded program for low income families. Head Start provides equal learning opportunities for children with disabilities.
