June, 2011.
YCDI continues to grow in popularity in the USA and overseas. In Romania, 250 preschools are using the YCDI Early Childhood program (translated) as part of an European Union funded research project. In Vietnam, IKidz, an after-school education centre has licensed YCDI for use in school (materials translated). Michael Bernard trained the first group of YCDI trainers in Hanoi in December, 2010. In Australia, YCDI continues to be the most extensively used program of its kind with over 5,000 schools using YCDI programs and over 1,000 schools participating in YCDI's staff development program. In Singapore, kindergartens and primary schools have begun implementing YCDI. There are a number of Singapore teachers and mental health practitioners who have been trained as YCDI trainers by Michael Bernard in March of this year. Latest research (appearing in the Journal of Student Well-being) provides a positive evaluation of the impact of YCDI on student mental health in six different elementary schools. And research accepted for publication in the Early Childhood Education Journal provides evidence of the positive impact of the YCDI Early Childhood program on the wellbeing and reading achievement of young children.
