What We’re Reading

The Prenatal-to-3 State Policy Roadmap 2021, developed by the Prenatal to 3 Policy Impact Center at the University of Texas at Austin, identifies evidence-based investments that states can make to foster equitable opportunities for infants and toddlers. The Roadmap highlights five state-level policies and six strategies that states can adopt to help infants and toddlers get off to a healthy start and thrive.

We’ve been exploring the Roadmap for our own home state of 
Illinois, as well as others across the nation. We’re grateful for this impressive and robust tool that can help inform policy that is based on the science of early childhood development.
