Synopsis: The initial Starting Early Starting Smart (SESS) study tested effectiveness of integrated systems of care for at-risk children ages zero to five and their families. Rigorous evaluation of 12 programs demonstrated statistically significant improvement in access to service, caregiver behavioral health, family environment and child social-emotional and linguistic development. The Extended SESS analyses presented here test whether positive outcomes were sustained over an additional 18 months in five selected sites. Significant positive trends for SESS participants relative to comparison are sustained or emerge in several areas. Program design and implementation, participant characteristics, and research method help explain extended outcome effects.
