Purpose of the Review. This review identifies the early developmental processes that contribute to schizotypy and suspiciousness in adolescence and adulthood. It includes the most recent literature on these phenomena in childhood. Recent Findings. The early developmental processes that affect schizotypy and paranoia in later life are complex. In contrast to existing studies of psychiatric patients and clinical/nonclinical adult populations, the study of schizotypy and suspiciousness in young children and adolescents is possible due to new child-appropriate dimensional assessments. New assessments and the advancement of technology (e.g., virtual reality in mental health) and statistical modeling (e.g., mediation and latent-class analyses) in large data has helped identified the developmental aspects (e.g., psychosocial, neurocognitive and brain factors, nutrition, and childhood correlates) that predict schizotypy and suspiciousness in later life. Summary. Prospective longitudinal designs in community youths can enhance our understanding of the etiology of schizophrenia-spectrum disorders and in the future, the development of preventive interventions by extending adult theories and interventions to younger populations.
