In addition to the outcome that rated high, several outcomes in this study rated low: positive engagement at ages 3, 4, and 5; coercive engagement at ages 3, 4, and 5; and three measures of effortful control at age 5 (the wrapped-gift task, draw-a-star task, and tower task). These outcomes rated low because we could not assess attrition or baseline equivalence based on information reported in the study, nor was this information available from the author. HomVEE reports results for interventions delivered to families with children from birth to kindergarten entry. Given that the FCU intervention continued to be delivered to families at the time of later assessment, child and parent outcomes reported within this study that were assessed after children were age 5 were excluded from review. In addition, some outcomes in the structural equation models reported in this study were not eligible for review because the model did not estimate the direct, total effect of the intervention on the outcome. This study is part of a large RCT described by Dishion et al. (2008).
