New research from Michigan State University finds children develop language and literacy skills at a young age, in part due to their ability to “self-regulate.”

Self-regulation refers to a child’s ability to pay attention to tasks. 

Lori Skibbe is an associate professor in MSU’s Human Development and Family Studies department. She led a study of language and literacy skills among more than 300 children.
