Objective:We performed a randomized, controlled trial to assess the impact of the Video Interaction Project (VIP), a program based in pediatric primary care in which videotaped interactions are used by child development specialists to promote early child development.Method:Ninety-nine Latino children (52 VIP, 47 controls) at risk of developmental delay based on poverty and low maternal education were assessed at age 33 months. VIP was associated with improved parenting practices including increased teaching behaviors.Results:VIP was associated with lower levels of parenting stress. VIP children were more likely to have normal cognitive development and less likely to have developmental delays.Conclusion:This study provides evidence that a pediatric primary care–based intervention program can have an impact on the developmental trajectories of at-risk young preschool children.
