The Home Instruction Program for Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) is a home-based, early intervention program for young, disadvantaged children and their families to enhance their potential for academic success when they enter school.

Descriptions and evaluations of HIPPY programs around the world are presented in chapter 6. Chapter 7 presents participants' views of the program and discusses its impact on mothers, program aides, and the community. Chapter 8 examines the role of the program in adult learning.
