Applied Research at Erikson Institute
We seek knowledge in the service of children.
The first 1,800 days of a person’s life are formative and set the stage for a child’s long-term physical and emotional health, socioeconomic trajectory, life expectancy, happiness and wellbeing.
At Erikson Institute, we’re leading the field in early childhood research. We’re uncovering opportunities for us to drive positive change for children, families, and communities.
