SEED examines differences in early child development, specifically oral language skills and socio-emotional development. These manifest as social inequalities which, for many, persist through childhood and into work.
The project has two principal objectives:
- Identify the mechanisms through which changing social inequalities impact on children’s oral language and socio-emotional development;
- Identify the implications that these evolving social disparities have for patterns of performance at school age and beyond into adolescence and adulthood.
