Early Childhood & Family Research Lab

In the Early Childhood and Family Research Lab, we study infant and children's early social and emotional development in the context of family, community, and culture. Studying development in children and families during the formative years of pregnancy through age five, our research goals are to further the understanding of the connections of normative development and developmental risk. Our faculty and student research is integral to these goals, each project adding to our understanding of development in young children and fortifying practices in strengths-based infant, child, and family intervention programs.
