Among the topics covered are brain development, the epidemiology and etiology of developmental disabilities, neurodevelopmental screening and assessment, and the shift toward family-focused intervention.For 4 decades, vigorous efforts have been based on the premise that early intervention for children of poverty and, more recently, for children with developmental disabilities can yield significant improvements in cognitive, academic, and social outcomes.
