Work in progress

EIF conducts programme assessments as part of our ‘What works’ reviews of evidence related to early intervention in specific issues, age groups or other populations. The following list outlines the subject-matter or scope of current and upcoming reviews, and (where available) the prospective list of programmes that will be assessed as part of each review.

Programmes that are assessed and found to have at least preliminary evidence of achieving positive outcomes for children will be added to the Guidebook, as and when individual programme reports are completed.

Programmes that are assessed and found to have evidence that is ‘not level 2’ (rated NL2) will not be added to the Guidebook. For a list of these programmes, see: Other programmes

Interparental relationships

This review includes programmes intended to improve the interparental relationship or other aspects of the family system in order to improve outcomes for children. It will be conducted in Q1 and Q2 2017.
