A key tenet of ICD since its foundation in 1925 has been to "give away" the science. As part of that, we make regular efforts to translate our research and share it with the community.
ICD Community Symposiums
ICD has held two Community Symposiums on the topic of Early Development and the Achievement Gap, first in 2013 and then again in 2015. Over 150 people from around the community - schools, policy makers, nonprofit organizations, and community leaders - joined ICD faculty each time to hear talks and participate in discussions aimed at sharing wisdom gleaned from years of research on early development.
