Early Developments, v1 n1-3 Spr-Fall 1997
This document consists of the first three issues (1997 output) or the serial "Early Development." The publisher of this journal, the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, has more than 60 state and federally funded projects, most of which focus on early childhood development of children ages birth through 8. The center's researchers study such things as young children's health, services and practices for children with disabilities, family development and support, recommended practices in child care, early intervention, and policy implications. This publication presents updates on current studies, excerpts from research and policy briefs, and articles about the center's research findings. Each issue also includes a special section on the National Center for Early Development & Learning (NCEDL), a 5-year project examining critical issues in early childhood practices and administratively housed at the Frank Porter Graham center. The spring 1997 issue offers introductory articles on the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center and NCEDL. The summer 1997 issue focuses on inclusion of children with disabilities in early childhood settings. The autumn 1997 issue looks at child care policy at the national, state, and local levels, and examines the role of policy briefs produced by NCEDL and how policymakers and administrators function as NCEDL advisors.
