    provide

    The findings provide strong support for the notion that it has some negative impact on children's intellectual development.

    About 'for the notion...', is it a modifier of '(strong) support' (i.e. 'for X' in 'support for X')?

    Or is it the same kind as this? And is the same kind of conversion possible?

    They provided food for the refugees.→They provided the refugees with food.

    Let me ask this way. Does this make the same sense?

    The findings give strong support to the notion that it has some negative impact on children's intellectual development.

    It seems to mean the same to me, but I would expect to see "The findings strongly support the notion that..."
