Developer
This product was developed by the Social Development Research Group, University of Washington School of Social Work.

Product Description
This observation protocol was designed to study the impact of Raising Healthy Children, a school-based intervention program. It is used, in addition to other instruments and data sources, to examine the academic, social, and emotional differences between treatment and control groups of students after Raising Healthy Children program implementation (about 1,000 students total). Students in Grades 1–2 were randomly assigned to one of these groups; this longitudinal research continues to follow these students. Parents and teachers in the treatment group recieve training on strategies to raise student success—parents through workshops and teachers through professional development.
