Early exposure to Direct Instruction and subsequent juvenile delinquency: A prospective examination

Mills, P.; Cole, K.; Jenkins, J.; Dale, P.
Abstract:
This study examined juvenile delinquency outcomes for children with disabilities who were in two preschool models: Direct Instruction and a cognitively-oriented, child-directed model. Participants included 171 children who were randomly assigned to either preschool model. The researchers followed these children, and assessed them at age 15, using the Juvenile Delinquency Self-Report Questionnaire. Results indicated that the groups did not differ significantly in their level of reported delinquency. (Copyright © 2011, National Institute for Direct Instruction (NIFDI). All rights reserved).
