The CHILD Study is an evolving project. When it was developed, a primary hypothesis was articulated and it remains a foundational constant for the research inquiry. The CHILD Study will continue to evolve as new theories emerge or as more evidence emerges to support other ideas. Therefore the content of this site will change accordingly.
