Program Overview

FAST Track is a comprehensive, long-term program to prevent chronic and severe conduct problems among high-risk children ages 5 to 15. Targeted children are identified in kindergarten for disruptive behavior and poor peer relations and receive interventions from 1st through 10th grade with particularly intensive interventions during school transitions. The program includes parent training, home visitations, social skills training, academic tutoring, along with a classroom component.
