The goals of ACF’s National Research Conference on Early Childhood are to identify and disseminate research relevant to young children (birth to 8 years) and their families and to encourage collaboration among researchers, practitioners, and policymakers in order to build upon the evidence base for policy and practice. The conference emphasizes research that focuses on low-income families with young children. The 2016 Conference will present the latest research surrounding child care, Head Start, Early Head Start, home visiting, child welfare, and other early childhood programs. Further, the conference welcomes submissions from all relevant fields including education, child development, political science, psychology, sociology, public and allied health, psychiatry, nursing, social work, dentistry, anthropology, law, and economics.
