Evaluation of the I Can Do It, You Can Do It! Health Promotion Intervention

I Can Do It, You Can Do It is a health promotion intervention for youths with disabilities designed by the Office on Disability of the Department of Health and Human Services.  The program was designed to increase physical activity and good nutritional habits of participants.  With support from the National Institutes of Health, the Division teamed with the American Association on Health and Disability to evaluate the effectiveness of the program.  The findings from two longitudinal evaluations, including a national randomized control group study, are clear: the program is not effective in achieving its goals.
