The greatest opportunity for influencing a child’s life begins on day one, and public policy plays an important role in ensuring that our youngest children get off to the best possible start in life. Policy is how practice and research can reach millions across every state, in every community, and in Washington, DC, and there are multiple ways for you to get involved in the public policy process at all levels of decision making.
The Early Experiences Matter Policy Guide offers you a wealth of policy options and strategies to use in your efforts to affect policy change for infants, toddlers, and their families. It includes mini policy briefs, practical tools, in-depth policy papers, and more on the following topics:
- Physical Health
