The Environment of Childhood Poverty
Poverty is clearly not good for childrens development, but the reasons for this are only beginning to emerge. One fruitful line of inquiry focuses on exposure to cumulative risk factors, both social and physical, that disadvantaged children are more likely to encounter. In this talk I will briefly review developmental correlates of childhood poverty and then examine the environment of childhood poverty, drawing in part from a 20 year longitudinal study of children born poor or middle income.
