    Identifying Critical Windows of Exposure for Children's Health

    An association has been found between exposure to toxic chemicals and various neurodevelopmental disorders such as learning disabilities, intellectual retardation, dyslexia, attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, autism, and propensity to violence.
    Timing of exposure can be critical to the development of these disorders that currently affect millions of children.

    Environmental Health Perspectives
    Volume 108, Number 6 June 2000
    On the Cover: The risks that children face from environmental exposures may be different from the risks to adults from the same exposures. This issue of EHP addresses some of these risks to children and examines monitoring methods and exposure assessment models used to determine these risks.
