Abstract

The purposes of this exploratory investigation were to (a) ascertain school readiness influences of young children ages birth to three in the New Jersey Early Intervention System, (b) to analyze race and ethnicity trends of the children within the program, (c) and to see if individual race/ethnicity played a role in children’s school readiness. Publicly available data from the Department of Health/Division of Family Health Services / Early Intervention System was used to analyze two New Jersey counties, Camden County and Somerset County, and to identify amount of school readiness in early intervention results reported from 2013 to 2014. The results are from indicator 3A for individual social and emotional skills from the County Performance and Determination report.
