Infant and Child Studies

The Infant and Child Studies Consortium works to answer questions about how children think, hear, and speak.  Children are phenomenal learners, and understanding the way that both their environment and their cognitive skills shape that learning is critical both for improving our schools and for intervening when children face difficulties.

Maryland researchers are exploring children’s social-emotional, memory, mathematics, and language development, both in typically-developing children and those at risk for later cognitive impairments.
