Masten, Carlson and Zelazo's research on executive function in homeless children continues to attract media attention.

The collaborative research of Ann Masten, Professor, Stephanie Carlson, Associate Professor, and Phil Zelazo, Professor, all at the Institute of Child Development, was highlighted in Simon Says: Minnesota research focuses on helping homeless kids learn, which appeared in The Twin Cities Daily Planet on January 29, 2012. With a recent grant from the National Center for Education Research, Masten, Carlson, and Zelazo have been working on developing kindergarten readiness programs that focus on development of executive function skills.
