Odom et al. (education, developmental psychology, and child development, U. of North Carolina at Chapel Hill) gather a group of psychology, social work, child development, education, and public health and pediatrics researchers from the US for 15 essays based on papers given at a meeting held at the Frank Porter Child Development Institute in Chapel Hill, North Carolina, in May 2010. They explore the impact of family poverty on areas of early childhood development that have lifelong effects, including brain development, attachment, early cognitive and self-regulatory skills, physical health, and the emergence of language. They summarize the scientific findings and their implications for delivering interventions for attention and memory development; general language acquisition and dual language learning; social-emotional development, including temperament and early relationships; and issues related to nutrition and physical activity and general physical health. These are followed by sections on families and cultural diversity and poverty and infant/toddler care and education, which addresses findings from Early Head Start studies and other interventions for individual differences. The volume is aimed at developmental and educational psychologists, early childhood professionals and researchers, and students. Annotation c2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
