Educating State Legislators About Child Development


State legislators can be instrumental in promoting the healthy development of young children. Yet most are relatively uninformed about child development and opportunities to improve the content of health insurance coverage through legislated policy changes. This project will seek to educate state legislators about the importance of early prevention and developmental services and about the policy options available to them for promoting the health and development of young children in their state. Project staff will prepare educational materials, develop policy options, and convene a group of influential legislators to assist them and their colleagues in taking effective action.
