Associate Professor Steven Howard’s research focusses on how to easily, accurately, and playfully pinpoint children’s developmental progress and needs in key foundational areas such as self-regulation and cognition. As Chief Investigator on the Educated and Healthy Child programs, Steven hopes to provide timely, accurate and pragmatic knowledge to children and their carers to help guide their decisions in new and evolving spaces.
Steven’s work with the Centre will add to his extensive impact in the fields of early childhood education and health. Steven co-developed the Early Years Toolbox, a resource adopted by educators and researchers around the world to assess children’s cognitive, social, self-regulatory, numeracy and language development. He has also been involved in two groundreaking studies that led to the development of low-cost and accessible resources for educators and parents to support children’s ongoing development. Steven has published over 60 articles and seven books and chapters.
