Key Findings

For children’s characteristics, family backgrounds, and home environments, the tables show:

  • Demographic characteristics (for example, age, race/ethnicity, language(s) spoken in the home, who lives in the household)
  • Family economic well-being (how the household is doing financially)
  • Parents’ Native language use and how important it is to them that the child learns Native language
  • Community cultural activities attended by the child in the past year

For children’s cognitive and social-emotional skills and physical health and disability status, the tables show:

  • Children’s language, literacy, and math skills
  • Children’s executive function (self-regulation skills), social skills, problem behaviors, and approaches to learning
  • Teacher reports of children’s disability status and type, and Individualized Education Program/Individual Family Service Plan status
  • Parent reports of children’s health status
  • Children’s height, weight, and body mass index

The purpose of this report is to (1) provide information about the AIAN FACES study, including the background, design, methodology, assessments, and analytic methods; and (2) report detailed descriptive statistics (averages, response ranges, and percentages) in a series of tables on children and their families. The report provides a national picture of the children and families attending Region XI AIAN Head Start in fall 2019.
