Trends in the Well Being of Younger Children

The Foundation for Child Development has initiated the development of the first comprehensive report on the overall health, education, well-being and quality of life of America's youngest children -- from birth through eleven years old. The Special Focus Report, "Trends in Infancy/Early Childhood and Middle Childhood Well-Being, 1994-2006," will be released on April 25 at the New America Foundation. The report presents the first wide-ranging picture of how children in their first decade of life are faring in the United States, and is the first to track and compare child well-being across three primary stages of development -- early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence using the Child Well-Being Index (CWI). A group of early childhood experts will discuss this report, their experiences, the role of families and of family-supportive policies in influencing child outcomes and what can and should be done to improve the lives of America's youngest children.
