Vol 38 No 4 Taking a Global View on Infants, Toddlers, and Their Families
This expanded issue of the ZERO TO THREE Journal features a global focus on infants, toddlers, and families. This marks the first time that an entire issue of the Journal is devoted to an international perspective on meeting the needs of the youngest and most vulnerable children around the world.
The enthusiasm and momentum behind the recent efforts to strengthen the programs and services for early childhood education inspired us to bring together the voices presented in this issue to share the most recent innovations and milestones that have brought a focus on child development to the foreground. The feature articles in this issue provide global perspectives on mental health, inclusive services for children with disabilities, maternal and child nutrition, parenting support, father involvement, and home visitation. In addition to the feature articles, we include a supplemental section that provides a snapshot of the variety of ways that members of the ZERO TO THREE Board of Directors, Academy Fellows, and staff are reaching outside of the United States to make connections that strengthen families and improve the lives of infants and toddlers.
