The Center on the Developing Child is a multidisciplinary team at Harvard University that is committed to driving science-based innovation in early childhood development. At the heart of their work is supporting children to reach their full potential, by building an R&D (research and development) platform and by helping to transform the policy and practice landscape.
What is COVID-19? And how does it relate to Child Development?
The Center on the Developing Child recently shared an infographic (shown below) that explains the basics of what COVID-19 is, and what it can mean for stress levels in both children and the adults who care for them.
It offers some easy and concrete solutions to help caregivers ensure that both they and the children they care for don’t experience long-term effects of stress. It also explains how all of us as a society can work to ensure the health and wellbeing of all our fellow community members, both now and in the future.
