This project will take a life-course epidemiological approach that seeks to determine and quantify the effects of multiple early-life variables on the socio-emotional developmental trajectories and outcomes of preschool aged children, paying attention to the complex interrelationships of these bio-psychosocial variables and their cumulative effects upon the trajectories, in order to elucidate temporal and causal hierarchies among the variables.
