Abstract
Recent findings in applied developmental science highlight ways that childrens socioemotional development may play an important foundational role for later chances of school success.В  Childrens social skills and emotional and behavioral adjustment have been identified as particularly important sources of support for low-income children facing higher risk of school failure.В  The following report reviews selected models and methods in applied developmental science that focus on young childrens socioemotional development.В  It then reviews recent findings from a large number of randomized trials as well as nonexperimental studies and places those findings in the context of applied developmental science.В  Lessons learned regarding ways to strengthen childrens school readiness will be discussed.
