Social Policy Report, v10 n1-4 1996

These four serials address issues of concern for child development researchers and specialists and also address the implications for policies affecting children. The first issue reports on "Latin American Immigration and U.S. Schools." The report provides an overview of Latin American immigration, its impact on schools, and efforts to improve academic achievement. The second issue reports on "Inclusion of Young Children with Disabilities." The articles examine inclusion of children with disabilities, influences on children with disabilities, definition of inclusion, costs involved, implications for policy, and an update on the "Reauthorization of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act." The third issue examines "Building Research and Policy Connections: Training and Career Options for Developmental Scientists." The report focuses on the effects of developmental research on public policy, research skills, and career paths. The final issue examines nutrition and its effects on children's biological, psychosocial, and behavioral development, the importance of nutrition in child development, and the role of nutrition in cognitive development and economic progress. Finally, a brief addresses "U.S. Nutrition Programs Under Welfare Reform." (Author/SD)
