Science Magazine recently highlighted CSRP findings in the article "Interventions Shown to Aid Executive Function Development in Children 4 to 12 Years Old":

CSRP teachers provided better-managed and more emotionally supportive classrooms than those of control teachers. [Executive Functions (EFs)] (attention, inhibition, and experimenter-rated impulsivity) of 4-year-olds in CSRP classes improved over the year and significantly more so than did EFs of controls… CSRP children improved in vocabulary, letter naming, and math significantly more than did controls. CSRP’s improvement of academic skills was mediated largely via its improvement of EFs. EFs in the spring of preschool predicted achievement 3 years later in math and reading.
