Promoting the Development of School Readiness and Self-Regulation in Young Children: Emotion, Attention, and Excellent Functions

This talk examines the effects of poverty on school achievement in the early elementary grades in a population based longitudinal sample of children and families in predominantly rural and low income communities in two regions of the US. The focus will be on self‐regulation development in children and on the ways in which self-regulation may be a primary pathway through which the conditions of poverty detrimentally affect early school achievement.
