Introduction

Oakland University's study was designed to evaluate the effectiveness of the GrapeSEED program when used with English-speaking Kindergarten and First Grade students from an economically deprived area (100% Free and Reduced Lunch). Teachers were trained to deliver the program according to the established procedures. From September to May 2014, the three Kindergarten teachers delivered 100, 100 and 98 lessons. The four First Grade teachers delivered 148, 136, and 157 lessons. Lessons varied from twenty to forty minutes. A total of 71 Kindergarten and 85 First Grade students participated.
