Poverty and Children's Cognitive and Social Development From Birth Through Third Grade
Detail: The developmental risks associated with poverty and economic disadvantage have been well documented, but the processes that account for the relations between poverty and children's development and the role of the timing and duration of poverty have not been thoroughly explored . In this article, the relations of duration and timing of poverty to children's cognitive and social development are examined using the longitudinal data from birth to Grade 3 (age 9 years) collected in the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development Study of Early Child Care and Youth Development (NICHD SECCYD). The quality of the home environment, parenting sensitivity, and child care experiences are analyzed as potential mediators of poverty effects.
