A Series on Understanding and Nurturing Social Development in Young Children


Deborah Weinstock-Savoy, PhD, instructor

This session will provide an overview of social development in children from infancy through kindergarten age. We will examine the normal developmental tasks and challenges associated with stages of social development, and discuss the importance of social and peer skills for other aspects of development. We will also review factors that affect social development, such as individual differences, gender, family and environmental influences. We will introduce some commonly-used social-emotional curricula and screening/assessment tools, and will consider warning signs and red flags for possible problems with social development.
