The first years of a child’s life encompass multiple aspects that can impact long-term psychological wellbeing for both the individual child and their familial system.
The development of socioemotional and sociocognitive abilities in childhood is a critical milestone of human development. Research to date highlights that both socioemotional and sociocognitive skills start to emerge early during infancy, and it is well established that the quality of caregiving and especially the possibility to experience sensitive and positive parental behaviors, as well as efficient and sensitive educational and scholastic practices, are relevant to the development of these processes.
In this Special Issue, we encourage submission of theoretical and empirical papers that investigate dimensions related to individual differences in the development of emotion understanding and regulation, attachment, cognitive functioning, executive functions, parenting, quality of life, and caregiving in educational and scholastic contexts in children with typical developing and children with developmental disorders (e.g., specific learning disorders, autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit, hyperactivity disorder, communications disorders, sensory deficits, intellectual disabilities).
We invite authors to submit original research papers or systematic review papers for the Special Issue entitled “Childhood Education and Care”. Our aim is to cover a wide range of topics and perspectives related to the childhood, not only in the basic research domain, but also related to interventions for the promotion, support, and protection of health and wellbeing in childhood. Papers reporting on methodological aspects of research in this area will also be considered.
