Connecting Science, Policy, and Practice: ZERO TO THREE’s National Training Institute, 2015

This issue of Zero to Three offers highlights from the ZERO TO THREE National Training Institute (NTI), held in Seattle, WA, December 2-4, 2015. The articles in this issue include the latest research about brain functioning during the first 3 years of life and the important role of early social interactions for later school readiness and lifelong learning; how toxic stress caused by adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) is having an impact on the health and development of children; a summary of what has been learned about early development during the past 15 years; and examples of how tribal communities are using federal funding opportunities and partnerships to build more coordinated, effective early childhood systems.
