A large and growing body of evidence documents the profound effects of early adversity on multiple neurobiological systems.  Two systems that are particularly sensitive to differences in early experience associated with adversity are those supporting language and self-regulation.  Because language and self-regulation skills are important for school readiness and academic outcomes, it is important to better understand associations between early adversity and these neurocognitive systems.  I will discuss several lines of research from our lab on the relationship between early adversity and language and self-regulation, and sustained selective attention in particular.  I will conclude with a discussion of our ongoing work in the implementation and assessment of an evidence-based two-generation intervention targeting language and self-regulation in children from lower socioeconomic status and their parents.
