Early Developments, 2002., v6 n1-3 Winter-Fall
This document consists of the three 2002 issues of a journal reporting new research in early child development conducted by the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center (FPG) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Articles in the Winter 2002 issue highlight some current work at FPG on factors that enhance or inhibit social and emotional development in young children, including dealing with antisocial behavior in preschool classrooms, the effects of quality child care and mothers' depression on young children, continuity of child care, and friendship formation among children with disabilities in various inclusive settings. The Spring 2002 issue focuses on current work with young children with disabilities, including the development of resources for teachers of visually impaired children, the Fragile X syndrome, a model of inclusion, and the cost, quality, and outcomes of preschool inclusion. Articles in the Fall 2002 issue deal with child and family policy issues, including the impact of welfare reform on families with members with disabilities, the new National Early Childhood Technical Assistance Centers to support implementation of early childhood provision of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), and service coordination. Each issue also lists recent publications by researchers at the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Center. (KB)
