The Editors of JCCP continue the series on special topics for which there is a particularly
high level of research activity. The next special issue, to be edited by Nurit Yirmiya, will
be on the topic of Early Prevention and Intervention Programs. Submissions for all
innovative work in this area are welcome. Early in this context refers to work conducted
with young infants, toddlers and children up to the age of 6 years. Prevention and
intervention studies that address typically developing children as well as children with
special needs or diagnoses of any kind, and/or their families, and/or their social-
educational milieus are welcomed. Conceptual and theoretical papers as well as
authoritative reviews of the literature that advance the field will also be considered.

        The papers will be subjected to the normal refereeing process and, if accepted for
publication, will appear together in one special issue or section of the Journal. Inquiries
prior to submission may be directed to sam.moore@acamh.org.uk
