For the past 15 years, Invest in Kids (IIK) has served as an intermediary of the implementation of The Incredible Years® in Colorado. To support Colorado communities working towards meaningful outcomes, IIK follows a research-based implementation framework from the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN; http://nirn.fpg.unc.edu). This framework guides our focus on site development and is applied to our training, coaching, evaluation and ongoing quality improvement support. During the 2016-17 program year, IIK trained a total of 356 teachers and parent group leaders across the state. A total of 7,945 children and 541 parents across 22 counties received The Incredible Years® with the support of IIK.
