Community projects

Dr. W. Boyer is principal investigator and Dr. J. Anderson collaborator for a reserch study entitled: Standardized Measurement of Self-Regulation Development in Young Children. This study will develop and communicate a standardized measurement tool to enable educators and parents to evaluate developmental self-regulation needs of young children in their care. The basis of the measurement tool shall be a theoretical framework for self-regulation resulting from the primary investigator’s current grant-supported qualitative research. Using a grounded theory research design on over 100 boys and girls, their families and their preschool educators, the current research is constructing a new theoretical framework. Funding for this research study was made by the generosity of the Human Early Learning Partnership (H.E.L.P.) and the Social Sciences and Human Research Council (S.S.H.R.C.) of Canada.
