Network of Infant Toddler Researchers (NITR)

Resource Type: Administration for Children and Families/OPRE Projects
Principal Investigator(s): Halle, Tamara; Pai-Samant, Shefali;
Date Issued: 2011
Description: The Network of Infant Toddler Researchers (NITR) was founded by OPRE in 2011 in order to bring together leading researchers studying pregnancy and the first three years of life. OPRE convened NITR to answer questions of interest to ACF and programs serving infants and toddlers (e.g., child care settings, home visiting, Early Head Start, child welfare). The mission of NITR is to encourage members to collaborate in order to: - Identify existing research that can inform policy and practice in ACF-relevant programs serving infants and toddlers (i.e., child care, home visiting, Early Head Start, child welfare) and, working with federal staff, translate research for various audiences and purposes; - Identify research gaps that, if addressed, would support ACF-relevant programs serving infants and toddlers; and - Build capacity through facilitation of networking and collaboration among the participants of NITR to conduct research that would directly inform ACF-relevant programs serving infants and toddlers (NITR mission statement, 2012) For more information, please visit: http://www.researchconnections.org/content/childcare/federal/nitr.html
