Head Start beneficial for children with disabilities, study finds

Youths with disabilities in the Head Start program had higher language, math and literacy scores and an increased likelihood of having an individualized education program, compared with those who weren’t in Head Start, according to a study in the Journal of Social Service Research. However, the findings, based on Head Start Impact Study data involving 570 children with multiple disabilities, ages 5 and 6, showed lower test scores among those with IEPs.
