The purpose of this study is to learn more about how experiences early in life influence children's brain development. The brain develops very quickly during the first two years of life. Understanding how early experiences help to shape the brain during infancy is important for improving children's long-term physical, emotional and behavioral health. This study will provide valuable information that we hope will inform future programs to help parents and educators better support children's early brain development and their long-term health.
