Children’s social and emotional skills are developing all the time. Skills may develop differently for different children. Children benefit from having many learning and practice opportunities. Scientists claim that early social-emotional skills are linked with a wide array of positive adult outcomes, including positive mental health, interpersonal relationships, educational attainment, civic engagement, productive employment, and physical health in later life.
These skills can be promoted during the preschool years with the use of evidence-based programs.
Skill-based SEL programs that are combined with professional development for teachers and with academic enrichment programs optimize social-emotional growth.
The benefitsare even greater for children with delays in social-emotional skill development associated with early socioeconomic disadvantage.
