A developmentally appropriate curriculum for diverse groups of children.
The Mediated Learning Curriculum has been rigorously evaluated over a 15-year period and is effective with children who have developmental delays and children who are developing typically. Positive effects of the model are found in students who received the curriculum during preschool as late as age 16. Please see The Evidence Base for additional information.
