Interventions for Promoting Early Child Development for Health

The Early Life Working Group of the Scottish Collaboration for Public Health Research and Policy (SCPHRP)

This literature review was conducted to provide practitioners, academics, policymakers and other interested stakeholders with a synthesis of international research evidence that assesses the effectiveness of early childhood interventions aimed at promoting cognitive and social development. Further objectives were to identify the key policies, programmes and interventions, already in use or being piloted in Scotland, designed to impact on cognitive and social development in young children, highlight deficiencies in the current system and suggest potential areas for action.
