Developmental and paediatric care of the pre-school child. (1/3516)

Through an Upjohn Travelling Fellowship I visited 27 experts in childcare and sought their opinions on the privileges, possibilities, and problems in organising developmental and paediatric care for pre-school children in the United Kingdom.The role of the general practitioner was seen by many of the experts clearly. How he is to play it is shrouded in uncertainty. Research is urgently needed both on the tools of surveillance and on the different methods of arranging care.  (+info)

Predicting developmental outcomes at school entry using a multiple-risk model: four American communities. The Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (2/3516)

The contributions of different risk factors in predicting children's psychological and academic outcomes at the end of 1st grade were examined. Using a regression model, levels of ecobehavioral risk were assessed in the following order: specific demographics, broad demographics, family psychosocial status, mother's depressive symptoms, and neighborhood quality. Participants were 337 families from 4 American communities. Predictor variables were assessed in kindergarten, and teacher, parent, and child outcomes (behavioral and academic) were assessed at the end of 1st grade. Results indicated that (a) each level of analysis contributed to prediction of most outcomes, (b) 18%-29% of the variance was predicted in outcomes, (c) a common set of predictors predicted numerous outcomes, (d) ethnicity showed little unique prediction, and (e) the quality of the neighborhood showed small but unique prediction to externalizing problems.  (+info)

Health needs of preschool children. (3/3516)

An epidemiological study of disease in a geographically identified population of 250 children is reported. 22% had not seen their general practitioner (GP) at all in the past year, while 20% had seen him four times or more. The vast majority of these visits were because of an infective illness; and developmental and behavioural problems were rarely presented to GPs. 53% of children had not been to hospital since birth, but 11% had been at least four times. Respiratory infections and middle ear disease were the commonest illness reported, and nearly 3% had an infected or discharging ear at the time of examination. 15% of 3 year olds had speech and language problems. 18% of children over 2 years were thought by the examiners to have a behavioural problem, half being assessed as mild, the remainder as moderate or severe.  (+info)

Family factors affecting child development. (4/3516)

In a large, geographically defined population of children a number of family factors in addition to social class, determined by the father's occupation, were recorded by health visitors and school nurses with routine responsibility for these children. The quality of the children in normal schools was assessed in terms of nonverbal IQ and height at the ages of 5 and 10 years, and of behavior as reported by the teacher at the age of 10 years. By analysis of variance the sum of the independent effects of the other family factors greatly outweighed that of occupational social class, except in the case of the IQ at 10 years. The most important of the other family factors was the quality of the mother's care of her child during the first 3 years of life.  (+info)

Growth hormone treatment in young children with Down's syndrome: effects on growth and psychomotor development. (5/3516)

BACKGROUND: Learning disability and short stature are cardinal signs of Down's syndrome. Insulin-like growth factor I (IGF-I), regulated by growth hormone (GH) from about 6 months of age, may be involved in brain development. AIMS: To study long term effects of GH on linear growth and psychomotor development in young children with Down's syndrome. Study design-Fifteen children with Down's syndrome were treated with GH for three years from the age of 6 to 9 months (mean, 7.4). Linear growth, psychomotor development, skeletal maturation, serum concentrations of IGF-I and its binding proteins (BPs), and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of IGF-II were studied. RESULTS: The mean height of the study group increased from -1.8 to -0.8 SDS (Swedish standard) during treatment, whereas that of a Down's syndrome control group fell from -1.7 to -2.2 SDS. Growth velocity declined after treatment stopped. Head growth did not accelerate during treatment. No significant difference in mental or gross motor development was found. The low concentrations of serum IGF-I and IGFBP-3 became normal during GH treatment. CONCLUSIONS: GH treatment results in normal growth velocity in Down's syndrome but does not affect head circumference or mental or gross motor development. Growth velocity declines after treatment stops.  (+info)

Infants' learning about words and sounds in relation to objects. (6/3516)

In acquiring language, babies learn not only that people can communicate about objects and events, but also that they typically use a particular kind of act as the communicative signal. The current studies asked whether 1-year-olds' learning of names during joint attention is guided by the expectation that names will be in the form of spoken words. In the first study, 13-month-olds were introduced to either a novel word or a novel sound-producing action (using a small noisemaker). Both the word and the sound were produced by a researcher as she showed the baby a new toy during a joint attention episode. The baby's memory for the link between the word or sound and the object was tested in a multiple choice procedure. Thirteen-month-olds learned both the word-object and sound-object correspondences, as evidenced by their choosing the target reliably in response to hearing the word or sound on test trials, but not on control trials when no word or sound was present. In the second study, 13-month-olds, but not 20-month-olds, learned a new sound-object correspondence. These results indicate that infants initially accept a broad range of signals in communicative contexts and narrow the range with development.  (+info)

Risk factors for strabismus in children born before 32 weeks' gestation. (7/3516)

AIM: To investigate risk factors associated with strabismus in children born prematurely. METHODS: Prospective study of all children born before 32 weeks' gestation between 1 January 1990 and 31 December 1991 in a geographically defined population of approximately 3 million in the Northern Region of the United Kingdom. All children were examined aged 2 years by the same ophthalmologist and paediatrician. RESULTS: 558 children (98.6% of study group) were examined. Logistic regression showed an increased risk of strabismus in children with cicatricial retinopathy of prematurity (p=0.02), refractive error (p=0.003), family history of strabismus (p<0.0001), and poor neurodevelopmental outcome (p<0.0001), in particular impaired locomotor skills (p=0.008) and hand-eye coordination (p=0. 001). Gestational age and regressed acute ROP were not independent risk factors for strabismus (p=0.92 and 0.85 respectively). CONCLUSIONS: This study has identified factors which are independently related to strabismus (although not necessarily causative) and others which are related only indirectly. This may contribute both to the management of children born prematurely and to future studies of the aetiology of strabismus.  (+info)

Bethlem myopathy: a slowly progressive congenital muscular dystrophy with contractures. (8/3516)

Bethlem myopathy is an early-onset benign autosomal dominant myopathy with contractures caused by mutations in collagen type VI genes. It has been reported that onset occurs in early childhood. We investigated the natural course of Bethlem myopathy in five previously published kindreds and two novel pedigrees, with particular attention to the mode of onset in 23 children and the progression of weakness in 36 adult patients. Our analysis shows that nearly all children exhibit weakness or contractures during the first 2 years of life. Early features include diminished foetal movements, neonatal hypotonia and congenital contractures which are of a dynamic nature during childhood. The course of Bethlem myopathy in adult patients is less benign than previously thought. Due to slow but ongoing progression, more than two-thirds of patients over 50 years of age use a wheelchair.  (+info)

Late preterm infants (born at 34-36 weeks gestation) have increasingly been regarded as at risk rather than Iow risk infants. The impact of neonatal morbidity and admission for neonatal care, on the longer term outcomes of LPls has not been fully explored. This thesis has sought to bridge an identified gap in the literature relating to this significant group of neonatal care graduates. The overall aim of this thesis was to consider the significant population of LPls who require admission for neonatal care. Firstly, maternal and perinatal risk factors and neonatal outcomes were considered through a descriptive analysis of neonatal data from the Neonatal Intensive Care Outcomes Research and Evaluation (NICORE) database. The second component of the thesis then considered specifically the early childhood development (cognition, language, motor development, physical health and growth) at three years of age of LPls who required neonatal Intensive Care (lC) compared with infants of the same ...
Delayed child development is a cumulative process that starts as early as in the womb and, once begun, may be difficult (or very costly) to reverse during school years and adulthood. This explains why early childhood development (ECD) has been recognized as having high returns over the life cycle in both developing and developed countries. Yet, very little is known with confidence about the economic justification for ECD programs in general and in developing countries in particular. The economic justification must depend on the comparison of benefits and costs of each ECD program. In this chapter, we review what is known and, perhaps more importantly, what is not known about components of economic analysis of ECD programs.
South Africa has the goal of universal access to a full range of early childhood development (ECD) services in ten years time. To meet this target, we will need more than 100 000 additional early learning teachers and 40 000 new venues for three- to five -year-olds alone, say education experts.
The Center for Early Childhood Development, Education, and Policy Research (Cedep) attached to the Graduate School of Education at the University of Tokyo and Benesse Educational Research and Development Institute (BERD) have worked together on the project to study childrens everyday life and development longitudinally. This project is to elucidate how childrens life and guardians parenting change as children grow by surveying the various aspects of them over multiple years. We aim to consider better involvement with children and how support for parenting should be based on the survey results.. ...
Universal aspects of early childhood development (ECD) are recognized globally, but cultural expectations of childrens competence vary widely across different domains, such as literacy and domestic responsibilities. The core challenge of ECD programs and policies is to integrate interventional goals with the biologically based developmental agendas of young children and the cultural expectations that shape their daily lives. This chapter presents a theoretical framework-the developmental niche-to help to clarify the issues involved in ECD across various cultural contexts, particularly in economically developing societies. We begin with a brief review of concept of culture as it applies to children and families, drawing from recent scholarship in psychology and anthropology. We then provide a description of the developmental niche as a framework for informing policy and improving program effectiveness. The final section illustrates the relevance of the developmental niche for ECD policy, using examples

The current study shows similar achievement of psychosocial developmental milestones in long-term survivors of childhood DTC as compared to non-affected groups. A slightly better social development in DTC survivors was observed compared to other CCS; differences with leukemia survivors were the most pronounced. Medical characteristics were not associated with a better or worse psychosocial development. Altogether, this indicates that even though the diagnosis of DTC during childhood is a life-altering event, the disease does not seem to have consequences related to altered psychosocial development. Current results align with the overall normal QoL reported in a previous study describing the same cohort (19).. Current results imply that survivors of childhood DTC may be less restricted in their psychosocial development than other CCS; previous studies report hampered psychosocial development in other CCS compared to a non-affected comparison group of similar sex and age (7). This indicates that ...

Introduction: The INMA (INfancia y Medio Ambiente [Spanish for Environment and Childhood]) project is a cooperative research network. This project aims to study the effects of environment and diet on fetal and early childhood development. This article aims to present the air pollutant exposure protocol during pregnancy and fetal and early childhood development of the INMA project. Methods: The information to assess air pollutant exposure during pregnancy is based on outdoor measurement of air pollutants (nitrogen dioxide [NO2], volatile organic compounds [VOC], ozone, particulate matter [PM10, PM2,5 ] and of their composition [polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons]); measurement of indoor and personal exposure (VOC and NO2); urinary measurement of a biological ...
We have demonstrated that early planned birth is independently associated with poor child development. This finding is significant because early birth due to planned birth now accounts for almost half of births before 39 to 40 weeks gestation. The decision for planned birth is predicated on beliefs that it is safer for the baby or mother to deliver early. It is of paramount importance to ensure that there are no unintended harms from such a significant shift in clinical practice. Although increased risks of poor health in childhood are associated with early planned birth, early childhood development is another important aspect of child well-being that predicts adult social, educational, and health outcomes. To our knowledge this is the first study to investigate the combined risk of mode of birth and gestational age and demonstrate the increased risk of poorer early childhood development with early planned birth. We found not only that the risk of poor development increased for every additional ...

Poor childhood conditions, such as exposure to poverty and stunting, are associated with long-term disadvantages to health, education, social adjustment and earnings.. In South Africa, 63% of children younger than 18 live in poverty: that is, on less than R923 a month or R31 a day. And 27% of 0-3 year olds are stunted, a condition which results from long-term undernutrition, mainly of essential vitamins and minerals. This hampers the development of lean mass - skeleton, brain, internal organ size and function.. Children living in poverty and who are stunted tend to go to school later. They also tend to learn less, pass fewer grades, leave school earlier and earn less as adults. In turn, their children are more likely to grow up in poverty, lacking essential nutrients and learning experiences, trapping families and children in poverty for generations.. It is this negative cycle that most concerns politicians and economists. Countries cant grow at the pace of their most able people because too ...

4. Discipline, which gives them the feeling of safety. The main goals of Jewish upbringing are determined in the blessing of a new-born: le-Torah, lehuppa, lemaasim tovim - for the Torah, for huppa, for good deeds. Teaching children from an early age to put a coin into a tzdaka-box (box for donations), to touch mezuzah (symbol of the Jewish home - cozy and hospitable), telling Jewish parables - this way we explain to them what is good and what is evil. For the little child who has touched the Jewish tradition, wearing a kippa on his head, building sukka on Sukkot, lighting Chanukah candles and playing dreidles, wearing Purim masks and asking four Pesach questions with matzo - all these things are natural rather than a show. New-borns and children up to 2 years old ...

Im going to sound a bit like a textbook right now. Im sorry. Bear with me. Youll be glad you did…I hope. :). I was taught in my early childhood courses that there are 6 domains of early childhood development. I say there are 7, but well get to that later…. All home school, preschools, and daycare programs should aim to address each of these developmental domains when teaching a young child.. This concept of developmental domains is the foundation for the content of I Can Teach My Child. Everything I post relates to one of the childhood development domains below. I try to make sure there is a variety of activities (not all alphabet activities, for example), but obviously the Social/Emotional and Self-Help/Adaptive domains wont have the depth or breadth as the others.. ...
Prenatal and childhood development influences health and disease risk for the entirety of an individuals lifespan. The molecular underpinnings of diseases such as asthma, metabolic syndrome, heart disease, and neuropsychiatric diseases originate in pre- and early postnatal life. These biological processes can be exacerbated by extrinsic factors such as environmental exposures, socioeconomic status and stress that, over time, result in adult diseases that represent substantial health care and economic burdens.. An impressive body of highly-regarded research has demonstrated that early childhood development directly influences long-term health, economic and social outcomes for individuals and society. Early exposure to adverse influences - social, economic, health or environmental - can create health deficits that last a lifetime. By identifying early risk factors and mitigating prevention and treatment strategies, the health of society as a whole can be improved.. Dukes research will inform ...
Healthy, normal neurodevelopment is a complex process involving cellular and structural changes in the brain that proceed in a specified sequence.1,2 Changes that are too rapid or too slow in one part of the brain may result in the failure of crucial pathway connections to other parts of the brain. Timing is crucial; once a particular developmental sequence fails, it may not be possible to retrieve all the lost function. Moreover, neurodevelopment proceeds by a scaffolding process in which the development of increasingly complex neural circuits (and the behaviors they support) relies on successful completion of previous stages of development. Thus, optimal, healthy neurobehavioral development requires that all necessary factors be present at their biologically defined time points and that no inhibitory factors be present.. The most active period of neurologic development occurs in the first 1000 days of life, the period beginning at conception and ending at the start of the third postnatal ...

BACKGROUND: Maternal pre-pregnancy obesity may impair infant neuropsychological development, but it is unclear whether intrauterine or confounding factors drive this association.
TY - JOUR. T1 - Chinese mothers profile which values both play and academics predicts better developmental outcome in young children. AU - Lin, Xunyi. AU - Li, Hui. PY - 2019/1/1. Y1 - 2019/1/1. N2 - Parental beliefs about play and learning are part of the belief-context of early childhood development and can thus make a key difference for the child. Previous studies have focused on cross-cultural comparisons, and therefore have neglected intra-cultural variations. This study sampled 163 Chinese mothers with children aged two to four years old (M = 38.73 months, SD = 4.91) in south-eastern China, using the Chinese Parent Play Beliefs Scale, Home Play Activities Questionnaire and China Developmental Scale for Children. The latent profile analysis identified the three profiles of Chinese mothers: (a) Traditional mothers, who placed higher value on pre-academic activities, but lower value on early play; (b) Contemporary mothers, who placed higher value on early play, but lower value on ...

The evidence is clear: good mental health begins at birth.. In response, ECU has established a course specialising in infant mental health - the first of its kind in WA.. From 2016 a Master of Infant Mental Health course will be offered focusing on the emotional development of young children and their families.. Course coordinator Professor Lynn Priddis said the one year course had been developed to suit professionals already working with infants, young children and their families across many service areas.. The course is ideally suited to people working in the fields of early childhood education, nursing, occupational therapy, paediatrics, physiotherapy, psychiatry, psychology, social work and speech pathology, she said.. There is a global trend towards recognising how important infant mental health is to wellbeing later in life. The World Bank said in 2013 that a failure to invest in early childhood development is costly to both individuals and society.. This has been recognised by the WA ...
Using a community sample of mothers and children in a major urban centre in Canada, this study described developmental problems at age 2 and identified protective factors for developmental problems in a subgroup of families with maternal mental health risk. Maternal mental health risk was common, affecting 27% of women in our sample, which is similar to previously reported rates of 25%.12. Poor sleep habits have previously been linked to poor child developmental outcomes including child behaviour problems,30 poorer learning capacity and academic performance.31 Our findings extend this research by identifying that good sleep habits may act as a protective factor for child social-emotional and behavioural development when mothers are experiencing poor mental health. It is hypothesised that having a child who sleeps well provides mothers, especially those with mental health concerns, with a reprieve from the demands of caring for a young child. Consequently, educating and providing parents with ...

Objective: In this pilot study, we described the gross motor development of infants aged 4 to 24 months with congenital heart disease (CHD) and assessed through a systematic develop­mental screening programme, with individualised motor interventions. Methods: Thirty infants who had cardiac repair underwent gross motor evaluations using the AIMS at 4 months, and the Bayley-III at 12 and 24 months. Results: Based on AIMS, 80% of 4-month-old infants had a delay in gross motor development and required physical therapy. Gross motor abilities significantly improved by 24 months. Infants who benefited from regular physiotherapy tended to show better improvement in motor scores. Conclusion: Our study highlights the importance of early motor screening in infants with CHD and suggests a potential benefit of early physical therapy in those at-risk. Further research is needed to assess the effectiveness of systematic developmental screening and individualized inter­vention programmes at identifying at risk

Downloadable! In this paper we explore the impact of birth weight on childrens cognitive and behavioural outcomes using data from the UK Millennium Cohort Study. In order to deal with the endogeneity of birth weight we use an estimator based on the eliminant method. When coupled with ordinary least squares, this estimator allows us to bound the effects of birth weight. The results show that birth weight has significant but very small effects on male cognitive development at age 3 and on female cognitive and behavioural outcomes at age 3. We also find that birth weight affects age 5 outcomes only through previous achievements, and that the overall impact fades out over time. These findings call into question the effectiveness of birth weight as a policy target.
Early as 8 months of age pelvic thrusting has been observed. Additionally, masturbation has been observed between 6 to 12 months of age. Sleeping with your infant does not affect sexual development. In early childhood statistics in regards to masturbation at ages 3 to 8 is based on perception.. Early in childhood children show their interest in the genitals and may role play. Same sex sexual activity play is more common than in heterosexual play and does not play a role in sexual orientation. In preadolescent it has been observed that preadolescents socialize with same sex friends and become self-conscious about their bodies. Preadolescents primary method of obtaining orgasm is masturbation. Sex play in preadolescence involves displaying of genitals by both parties involved and can be with or without touching.. Preadolescent same sex sexual behavior is short lived and mostly for exploratory purpose. In adolescence the major sexual act is masturbation. Adolescents use petting as a pathway to ...
Even for the most prepared parents, raising a healthy and happy child is one of lifes major challenges.. Having the ability to check off commonly accepted parenting prerequisites - a quality education, a good job, mental and emotional stability, a safe home - can make the challenge easier to tackle and overcome.. Unfortunately, adolescents who become parents often have a shortage of key life skills and other resources that are vital to the parenting process. This sad reality is supported by research showing that, on average, children who are born to teen parents are less likely to ever reach their full potential. And the effects of teenage pregnancy on parent, baby, and community can be devastating.. According to The Urban Child Institute, adolescent parenting is one of the major risk factors associated with early childhood development. In addition to its other effects, teen parenting is likely to hinder a childs social and emotional wellbeing.. When a baby is born to a teenage mother, he is ...

Abstract: Childrens optimal development is hampered by risks in the childs environment that get exacerbated by poor economic and social systems like the ones in Bosnia and Herzegovina (B&H). Good systems detect risk factors and atypical development, and support the individual needs of families and young children through parent education and direct early intervention in the first few years of the childs life. Such systems rely on science, data, and use validated measuring tools. With the support of USAID and in partnership with UNICEF and the relevant ministries in B&H, EDUS worked on developing such systems, which can provide evidence-based early detection and intervention based on the science of behavior. We created and standardized a behavioral developmental tool for early detection and monitoring of early childhood development on the sample of 1100 children with and without disabilities. Throughout the process, we compared development of matched pairs of children with disabilities vs. ...

Few data from randomised prospective studies address whether early diet influences later neurodevelopment in man. As part of a larger multicentre trial, 502 low birthweight infants were assigned randomly, for a median of 30 days, to receive a preterm formula or unfortified donor breast milk as sole diets or as supplements to their mothers expressed milk. Surviving infants were assessed at nine months after their expected date of delivery without knowledge of their feeding regimen. The mean developmental quotient was 0.25 standard deviations lower in those fed donor breast milk rather than preterm formula. In infants fed their mothers expressed milk, however, the disadvantage of receiving banked milk compared with preterm formula as a supplement, was greater when the supplement was over half the total intake, and approached five points, representing 0.5 standard deviations for developmental quotient. Infants fed donor breast milk were at particular disadvantage following fetal growth ...
Zinc is important. It is the second most abundant trace metal with 2-4 grams in humans. It is an essential trace element, critical for cell growth, development and differentiation, DNA synthesis, RNA transcription, cell division, and cell activation. Zinc deficiency has adverse consequences during embryogenesis and early childhood development, particularly on immune functioning. It is essential in members of all enzyme classes, including over 300 signaling molecules and transcription factors. Free zinc in immune and tumor cells is regulated by 14 distinct zinc importers (ZIP) and transporters (ZNT1-8). Zinc depletion induces cell death via apoptosis (or necrosis if apoptotic pathways are blocked) while sufficient zinc levels allows maintenance of autophagy. Cancer cells have upregulated zinc importers, and frequently increased zinc levels, which allow them to survive. Based on this novel synthesis, approaches which locally regulate zinc levels to promote survival of immune cells and/or induce tumor

Early Years Study 2 is a review of existing child-care research. The publisher is a group called the Council for Early Child Development. Their vision: The Council envisions community-based early child development and parenting centres linked to the school system and available to all families with young children. [8]. Early Years Study 2 begins by discussing existing epigenetic research, a new field that explores how gene expression can be altered by good maternal care, i.e. physical touch. Epigenetic research says good maternal care can program neural pathways in the brain which control biological responses to stress throughout life (most of the research is currently being done on rats and guinea pigs).[9]. This much is true. But an overall weakness in the report is non-specific language. For example, in describing epigenetics, they use mother and caregiver interchangeably. This may be because epigenetic research shows an adoptive caregiver can also provide good maternal care. But the ...
Methods: This prospective observational cohort study included 61 infants born between 29-36 (6/7) weeks GA admitted for >48h in the neonatal intensive care unit. At TEA, socioeconomic, perinatal and postpartum depression data were collected in addition to the performance of a neurological exam.

I understand that there are those who want to believe that things are simply genetic or that they were born that way, but in my case my older cousin was the one who initated everything. He was a bully and beat up on me all the time. He quit beating me up after making me do what he wanted. He essentially interrupted my normal childhood development at ages 9 though 14 and pretty much ruined me. He told me that if I told my parents he would tell them it was all MY idea and that my parents would believe him because he was older than me, and that they would put me in a foster home. And on top of it all, he lived an entirely straight lifestyle with a string of girlfriends after influencing me that way. I have thought many times about confronting him over this as adults, but I have a feeling that because he has always been, pretty much without conscience, that it would only gratify him to know that it still bothers me or that he had an impact upon my life ...
The Comprehensive Child Development Program (CCDP) was implemented as a result of the Comprehensive Child Development Act (Public Law [PL] 100-297), originally enacted by Congress in 1988 in an effort to increase the educational potential of young children from low-income families and to decrease the likelihood that they would be caught in the cycle of poverty. The CCDP was designed to provide intensive, comprehensive, integrated, and continuous support services for children from low-income families from birth, or before, through their entrance into elementary school, to enhance their intellectual, social, emotional, and physical development. Additionally, the CCDP was designed to offer support services for parents and other household family members to enhance their life management skills and economic self-sufficiency. The Comprehensive Child Development Act also mandated that programs collect data on the individuals and geographic areas served, including the types of services provided, the ...

Child development stages are the theoretical milestones of child development, some of which are asserted in nativist theories. This article discusses the most widely accepted developmental stages. There exists a wide variation in terms of what is considered normal, caused by variation in genetic, cognitive, physical, family, cultural, nutritional, educational, and environmental factors. Many children reach some or most of these milestones at different times from the norm.. Holistic development sees the child in the round, as a whole person - physically, emotionally, intellectually, socially, morally, culturally and spiritually. Learning about child development involves studying patterns of growth and development, from which guidelines for normal development are drawn up. Developmental norms are sometimes called milestones - they define the recognised pattern of development that children are expected to follow. Each child develops in a unique way; however, using norms helps in understanding ...

Patients (N=131 enrolled; N=106 assessed) less than 3 months of age at the time of cardiac operation were prospectively enrolled (years 1999-2003) and assessed at 8, 12, and 24 months after operation. Patients with preexisting conditions independently associated with poor neurodevelopmental outcomes were excluded. Fine and gross motor development was formally assessed at all 3 visits, and parent ratings of development across several domains were obtained. Neurodevelopment was formally assessed at 24 months of age using the Bayley Scales of Infant Development, 2nd edition (BSID-II) Mental Development Index score (MDI ...
August is Childrens Eye Health and Safety Month. To honor this designation, our Voices in the Field interview with Donna Fishman, director of the National Center for Childrens Vision & Eye Health at Prevent Blindness (Prevent Blindness), highlights the importance of vision health to childhood development and learning readiness, and how the organization promotes childrens vision health. According to Prevent Blindness, more than one in five preschool-age children enrolled in Head Start have a vision disorder. Although early detection can lead to an effective intervention and help to restore proper vision, parents and early care and education staff cannot always tell when a child has trouble seeing. Therefore, weve spotlighted resources that states and local programs can use to promote childrens vision health. Information about those resources are featured in the Project Spotlight and Resources for You sections.. We are also excited to introduce new funding opportunities published by the ...

Introduction: The development of the brain during fetal period affects the functioning of the nervous system whole of the life. Numerous maternal disorders during pregnancy can affect fetal neural development, one of which is gestational diabetes. Gestational diabetes can have a long-term negative impact on the fetal neural development. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of gestational diabetes on motor development of 12-month-old children referred to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. Methods and Materials: In this prospective cohort study, 439 pregnant mothers referred to Qazvin University of Medical Sciences who met the inclusion criteria were sampled at 24-28 weeks of gestation. Then these women were followed up until child birth and after birth until 12 months afterwards. The process of motor development of their children at the age of 12 months was studied using the Age and Stage Questionnaire. Result: The results of this study showed that among the women who participated
Interestingly, the authors found No significant associations were seen with exposure to young child-oriented educational or noneducational content. Three different types of content were studied, with only one showing negative associations. This content was designed for adults or older children; however, as I dont have access to the full study, I can only assume it was non-violent or non-sexual in nature, otherwise ethical issues would be raised.. This study did find duration of media exposure at age 6 months was associated with lower cognitive development at age 14 months (unadjusted: r = -0.17, P , .01; adjusted: β = -0.15, P = .02) and lower language development (r = -0.16, P , .01; β = -0.16, P , .01).. The message is clear from this study and many others:. ...
Des Moines is one of the cities thats the focus of a national campaign designed to help kids learn at an earlier age. United Way of Central Iowa president Shannon Cofield unveiled the plan called Born Learning at a Des Moines childcare center.. She says they know what happens in a childs early years matter for success in school life and readiness. But she says many parents and caregivers dont know what steps to take to get a child ready. She says theres often a big gap in what we know and what we do in childhood development. Cofield says the United Way is one of the agencies thats part of the 30-million dollar national campaign. She says Des Moines is one of 10 enhanced sites throughout the country that through advertising, parent education and advocacy, the campaign will help parents and caregivers notice and take action on everyday learning opportunities for children. Iowa First Lady Christie Vilsack says she supports the program. She says its about communication and all the ...
Introduction. Discuss the pros and cons of Cross-Sectional and Longitudinal approaches to the study of development. Word Count: 1103 The study of development, also known as Developmental psychology is all about the study of change over time. It is about understanding the nature and processes that are involved in biological, social, cognitive and emotional changes. The main interest and focus of developmental psychology lies in childhood development from birth through to adolescence. However the main responsibility is to study change from infancy to old age. The goal is to establish a core understanding of changes and the processes that generate them. Psychologists want to do more than simply describe, they want to understand the processes and causes of developmental change. They want to be able to explain changes in behaviour in order to be able to control or prevent it. In order to comprehend developmental change over time, psychologists have employed a number of research methods both ...

The emphasis of the course will be on providing students with a foundation for understanding the relationship between biological factors and the brain across the life span, as illustrated by neurodevelopmental and neurodegenerative disorders. These disorders will be discussed in the context of life-span development and compared to normal childhood development and normal aging. Students will become familiar with the clinical features of each disorder and the genetic, molecular and neural causes and consequences. Similarities and differences between disorders will be emphasised with a special focus on vulnerable brain systems and molecular pathways. Students will build on knowledge gained in their second year, learning how each disorder impacts cognition, behaviour, neural structures and molecular and intracellular systems. Students will read relevant scientific articles and become familiar not only with the genetic, molecular and neuroscientific tools used to study these disorders but also ...
The DASH-3 (1) provides an initial assessment for intervention planning, (2) tracks individual progress for persons with severe and/or multiple disabilities aged 6 months through adulthood, and (3) evaluates individuals with other types of disabilities who require a detailed assessment for intervention planning. At intake, the DASH-3 can be used to estimate developmental level, analyze developmental strengths and weaknesses, select skills most ready for targeted intervention, and determine types of support needed by the individual (e.g., assistance from others, visual supports, modified equipment). It can be used to develop educational and therapeutic intervention plans, such as Individual Education Plan (IEPs) and Individual Family Support Plans (IFSPs). For comprehensive assessment, all five scales will be required; however, the specific clinical or referral questions may require administration of fewer scales (e.g., a speech pathologist may choose to only administer the Language Scale ...
