Across the United States, large numbers of young children are affected by one or more risk factors for environmentally influenced developmental delay. Bright by Text (BBT) aims to support children and caregivers by delivering bite-sized and developmentally targeted doses of Bright by Three’s (BB3) research-based curriculum and curated content from resources such as Vroom and PBS, right to a caregiver’s cell phone. Bright by Three contracted with Marzano Research to conduct an evaluation study that would provide actionable results. The study was designed to produce information that could guide the BB3 leadership’s ongoing efforts to implement programmatic and strategic improvements to advance the goals of BBT. This executive summary provides an overview of the findings from the study and recommendations for next steps.
