September - January Series The changing face of early childhood in Britain. A stark gap in performance between children from higher and lower socio-economic backgrounds has opened up by the time they have reached school. This gap is especially pronounced for spoken language and school readiness, and has been shown to persist to the end of primary school and beyond. Parent-child book reading interventions have been proposed as a potential solution to close this gap. However, there is a need to bring the evidence together to help inform policy and practice.

This report summarises the processes, approach, and findings of a review of the literature and knowledge base regarding severe challenging behaviour in children and young people with developmental disabilities. The review follows well-established procedures, including an extensive search of published research in journals and monographs for intervention studies, theoretical contributions, and previous reviews of the literature covering work carried out in New Zealand and the extensive body of work available internationally. Reports andpublications were identified through searches of on-line databases, 22 majorinternational refereed journals in the field for the years , major books, and e-mail contact with leading researchers to locate information on research still in press. In all, information regarding more than 1, journal articles resulted in sourcing and developing an EndNote dataset of nearly reports in order to identify those that met required criteria for different components of the review.
