Dr. Lipscomb examines children's development of school readiness, and the effects of children’s experiences at home and in child care and early education settings to their development. Her work focuses on children’s self-regulation skills that facilitate later school success, and on vulnerable populations of children, including those involved in the Child Welfare system. Dr. Lipscomb also conducts applied research on the effectiveness of policies and programs that strive to improve the quality of child care and early learning in Oregon, and to increase access to quality care for children from vulnerable populations.
