Latino Infants: A Continuing Imperative

Latino infants are reshaping the United States.

Hispanics are one of the fastest-growing populations in the country, increasing by an amazing 23% since 2010.

There is an urgent need to develop informed policies and provide sufficient resources to ensure Latino babies develop into healthy children. UnidosUS reviewed research evidence on dual-language learning, culturally responsive practices, and numerous health topics important to Latino infant development.

The report also presents the experiences of program administrators, who describe the impacts of COVID-19 on this development, results from a survey of early childhood teachers, as well as policy recommendations for the state and federal levels.
