Latest research on children's issues featured at SRCD meeting

Can viewers in diapers learn languages from a video? How is the recession going to affect children? Is smoking during pregnancy a prenatal insult? What is the latest research on the achievement gap between different ethnic groups? How is the electronic age affecting children's social values? What is the role of the family in dealing with obesity among children?

Answers to those questions will be provided by researchers attending the biennial meeting of the Society for Research in Child Development (SRCD) in Denver, April 2-4, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Denver & Colorado Convention Center. This meeting brings together thousands of leading US and international experts to present and hear the latest transdisciplinary research in child development.

Because SRCD holds its meeting once every two years, it has always been a rich source of story ideas on the latest research findings on children's issues. Reporters are encouraged to search the program for additional newsworthy story ideas. The program is available at If you want specific papers within a topic that you find interesting, please contact us before the meeting. I will be available by cell phone (301-461-4941) and e-mail during the meeting.
