This study was led by Global TIES for Children at New York University

NYU-TIES researchers explored outcomes of an 11-week remote early learning program (RELP) for families affected by conflict and crisis, delivered alone and in combination with Ahlan Simsim Families (ASF), a parenting support program. 

Key takeaways include RELP and RELP+ASF had significant positive impacts on emergent literacy and numeracy and overall child development as well as on child play. RELP had significant, positive impacts on social-emotional and motor skills. And the size of the impacts found on child development is in the range of those seen in evaluations of in-person preschool from around the world, suggesting that RELP is a viable alternative to support children in places where in-person preschool is not feasible.
