A new report from the National Research Center on Hispanic Children & Families sheds light on the early home experiences of Latino children in order to better understand how these experiences are linked to their developmental trajectories.
Three broad themes found in the report are:
- Critical gaps exists in our knowledge of Latino children’s early home environments.
- Studies have focused on deficits, neglecting factors that promote Latino children’s social adaptation.
- Few studies investigate the diversity of Latinos and the cultural contexts of Latino children’s development.
