The long term goal of the series is to prevent delinquency, drug abuse, and violence.
- Develop comprehensive treatment programs for young children with early onset conduct problems, ADHD and Autism.
- Develop cost-effective, community-based, universal prevention programs that all families and teachers of young children can use to promote social and emotional learning, emotion regulation, problem solving, and academic success.
- Prevent children from developing conduct problems in the first place.
We act on the belief – that a child is the most precious of all human beings, and the
ability to withstand the emotional and social challenges as a teenager, clearly rests
upon a caring relationship between parent, teacher and child.
Our mission is to advance the social and emotional behavior of children of all ethnic
groups, through a series of interlocking parent, teacher and child programs supported by more than thirty years of clinically proven worldwide research.
Our goal is to deliver evidence-based programs and materials that develop positive parent-teacher-child relationships and assist in preventing and treating behavior problems and promoting social, emotional, and academic competence before a child becomes an adult.Incredible Years Mission Statement Incredible Years Fact Sheet
