      Executive Summary This report synthesises key messages for policy-makers and service managers and commissioners about interventions to improve children’s behaviour, based on evaluations of 9 programmes that have been funded through the Parenting and Early Intervention Initiative in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. The programmes include group -based parent training courses, classroom management training for teachers, a whole- school approach to promoting children’s social and emotional learning, an early childhood care and education project, after school and community mentoring programmes, and a home based early intervention programme designed to support families from pregnancy until their child starts school. Information from other programmes within the Initiative which include improving children’s behaviour among their objectives will be added to this report as it becomes available. This is one of a series of reports on what can be learned from the Initiative about influencing different aspects of children’s development
