This document consists of the two 1998 issues of a journal reporting new research in early child development conducted by the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. In the Spring 1998 issue, articles highlight the Center's diverse cross-cultural projects and global research, training and technical assistance projects. This issue also reports on: the founding of the Step by Step childhood education program; a U.S./Russian collaborative project called "Special Education and Social Work Services for Children with Disabilities and Their Families"; collaborative research with European and Asian countries; the international collaborative Latino Families of Children with Mental Retardation project; the Partnerships for Inclusion program, which provides technical assistance to Hispanic communities in North Carolina; and a survey of public and private kindergarten teachers on children's transition into kindergarten. The Fall 1998 issue reports study findings on: the link between sleep behaviors and learning development in preterm infants; assessing health risks earlier; the role of poor nutrition in virus mutations; and strategies for dealing with ear infections in early childhood. Other articles report news of respiratory infections in child care settings and controlling diarrhea in out-of-home infant care. (JPB)
