Special Issue Information
During the course of life, cognitive and emotional development go hand in hand. A delay or impairment in one can affect the development of the other. For example, a motor delay may impair a child's ability to explore the environment, and a language delay may affect a child's ability to relate appropriately, causing a reduction in the child's opportunities to experience and train social skills.
Understanding how cognitive and emotional development influence each other during development is crucial in order to plan effective interventions that take into account a child's difficulties in a comprehensive manner. Treating a cognitive difficulty without taking into account the emotional component and vice versa may result in a failure to achieve the therapeutic objective and affect the individual's quality of life.
This Research Topic welcomes original research articles that report unpublished studies regarding emotional and cognitive development in children with typical and atypical development. Case report articles that report particular cases of children and adolescents that present impairments and difficulties in emotional and cognitive abilities will be welcomed. I also encourage the submission of systematic review articles that present a synthesis of previous research regarding emotional and cognitive development that uses systematic and clearly defined methods to identify, categorize, analyze, and report aggregated evidence on this specific topic. Finally, review and mini review articles focused on aspects of a current area of investigation and its recent developments that present a complete overview of the state of the art are welcomed.
