Bridging the Early Years to the Early Grades
This infographic is the result of a 2012 planning meeting on Bridging the Early Years to the Early Grades. The meeting was sponsored by the Administration for Children and Families, W. K. Kellogg Foundation, and the Foundation for Child Development. BCYF is now accepting funding for a study: The Science of Children Birth to Age 8: Deepening and Broadening the Foundation for Success.

Promoting Children’s Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health Forum
The Board on Children, Youth, and Families will establish a Forum on Promoting Children's Cognitive, Affective, and Behavioral Health (C-CAB Health Forum). The Forum members and participants will engage in dialogue and discussion to connect the prevention, treatment, and implementation sciences with settings where children are seen and cared for, including primary health care, schools, preschools and child care, social service and child welfare, juvenile justice, family court, military, and community based organizations, and to create systems that are effective and affordable in addressing children's needs.
A major goal of the forum is to highlight and address gaps in the science of implementing programs and practices in the service of informing research, policy, and practice. One necessary component of addressing implementation science is knowledge utilization of the end user or decision maker, which can be at the local, state, or federal level. The Forum will address gaps in the science of implementation by convening a multi-sectoral group of representatives from academia, federal agencies, professional organizations, and philanthropy in an ongoing way, over three years. This group of forum members will decide on two workshop topics per year and work with the Academies staff to design the agendas and invite speakers and guests to participate.
