Abstract Education is the primary type of intervention recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and other organizations for households in which children are found to have blood-lead concentrations between 10 and 20 micrograms/deciliter. Approximately 90 percent of children with elevated blood-lead levels fall into this range. Thus, education is an important component to the success of lead risk reduction efforts. EPA is currently undertaking several initiatives to encourage and enhance educational programs nationwide. In order to support these initiatives, there is a need for a comprehensive reference on the scientific basis for educational recommendations. In addition to immediate use in developing new educational programs or re-evaluating current programs, this document provides an ongoing reference for evaluating future research results in the context of existing evidence. The recommendations made in many existing educational programs operated by state and local health departments and other organizations vary in detail, but they are usually consistent in providing information on cleaning methods; practical ways to reduce exposure to lead in paint, dust, and soil; non-hazardous methods of paint removal; nutrition; and behavioral modifications to reduce lead exposure. This report examines the scientific basis for specific educational recommendations in each of these areas.
