Children’s Early Intervention Trust (formerly known as Incredible Years Cymru)  is a registered charity established in 2007 by  Professor Judy Hutchings and the board of trustees.

The Charity’s prime objective is to ensure that children at risk of, or suffering from, Conduct Disorder, their families and teachers have access to effective research based interventions.

The needs of such children are for them to learn to manage frustration through the development of skills to enhance their social and emotional competence. The goal for parents and teachers of these children is that they will learn relationship enhancing and non-coercive strategies for supporting these children.

The work of Children’s Early Intervention Trust can be summarised in terms of three activities:

  • to disseminate research evidence on effective strategies and the availability of training in such programmes
  • to obtain resources to establish research into effective interventions
  • to act as a resource signposting parents, teachers and children to statutory and voluntary organisations that deliver effective services
