Since 2000, Michigan State University faculty and students in University Outreach and Engagement have been involved with Project SKIP to a Great Start, helping the Genesee Intermediate School District plan and implement an evaluation of the services provided by the project. We have examined the efficacy of Project SKIP by gathering information about family and child use of the program, parent efficacy, parent behavior, the home environment, and early child socioemotional development (from ages 2-5).
