Harris. The Institute was established to provide training for people working in the recently created Head Start program. Its original mission was to provide early childhood teachers and caregivers with a comprehensive education in child development and a clear understanding of the role of family and culture in a child’s life. The mission has expanded to the education of anyone who works with or on behalf of young children. The Institute’s academic programs, applied research, and community work focus on children from birth through age eight, particularly those at risk for academic failure. In addition to its exclusive focus on early childhood, Erikson is best known for its multidisciplinary and relationship-based approach to education, an approach that requires students to master child development knowledge from many fields and to develop professional self-awareness and a capacity for reflective practice. Erikson Institute is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and a member of the North Central Association. Academic programs Forty full- and part-time faculty teach approximately 260 masters, 12 doctoral, and 60 certificate students enrolled in the institute’s academic programs: Master of science in child development Master of science in early childhood education Master of science in child development/master of social work (in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago) Doctorate in child development (in collaboration with Loyola University Chicago) Irving B. Harris Infant Specialist Certificate Programs Irving B.

Herr Research Center for Children and Social Policy Established in 2005, the center conducts policy research on early childhood issues in the Great Lakes region, including infant mental health and social emotional support services, services and support for immigrant children and their families, and prekindergarten early education initiatives. Center for Children and Families Opened in January 2009, the Center offers assessment and treatment services for children from birth to age eight. The Center's interdisciplinary team, which includes developmental pediatricians, psychologists, occupational therapists, and social workers, specializes in social and developmenal concerns, depression and anxiety, regulatory concerns (including attention, hyperactivity, sleep, and eating problems), behavior challenges, parent-child relationship/attachment concerns, sibling rivalry, grief and other trauma, academic concerns, and developmental delays.
