Course Description

Early Childhood Policy, EDS 164R

The focus of Early Childhood Policy, is to understand how the diverse policy contexts in which children are born and raised have dramatic implications for their life trajectories. This course examines how, when and why government intervenes in children's lives, through family, pre-/school, community, and digital media contexts, aiming to improve their trajectories. From this basis, we examine the effects of policies on children locally, nationally, and internationally.

Shana Cohen

Dr. Shana Cohen is an assistant professor in the Department of Education Studies at UC San Diego. Her current work examines Mexican heritage families’ beliefs and experiences with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). She is particularly interested in how parents’ beliefs about ASD causes, symptoms, and treatments shape parents’ educational decisions, childrearing goals, and parenting practices. The findings from her studies will inform diagnosis and treatment protocols for young Mexican heritage children with autism. In her other work she collaborates with colleagues across disciplines (neuroscience, cognitive science, education reform, and early childhood education) to understand the contexts of learning and development for socioculturally diverse children. She uses a sociocultural theoretical framework to inform her work.
