This project assesses the efficacy of using an evidence-based early stimulation program, combined with components to help parents cope with stress, delivered during six routine monthly clinic visits to parents of children with sickle cell disease.
How does your innovation work?
Early detection and preventive interventions for sickle cell disease are a must, since lagging educational achievement impacts on employment outcomes and the ability of people to become productive members of society. This project assesses the efficacy of using an evidence-based early stimulation program. It is hoped that this innovation will improve parental psychological outcomes, as well as child developmental outcomes for children with sickle cell disease.
