Welcome to Developmental Psychology Section 

The Society’s Developmental Psychology Section promotes the scientific study of the cognitive, emotional, social, perceptual, and biological changes in humans that occur from before birth, through infancy, childhood, adolescence and into adulthood.

Since its inception in 1980, its mission has been to support and develop high quality research into developmental psychology and to raise the profile of British developmental research on a local and international level, with policy-makers, practitioners, business and the general public.
