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.
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

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 ...

Before adjusting for potential confounding factors, children who were breastfed for ≥6 months with exclusive breastfeeding for ≥3 months had decreased odds of difficulties with emotional symptoms, conduct problems, and total difficulties compared with children who were never breastfed. However, after adjustment, no association remained between breastfeeding and decreased odds of having difficulties with any of the domains measured by the SDQ. The results observed in our analysis are consistent with the hypothesis that the association between breastfeeding and later psychosocial development in children may be affected by residual confounding, particularly maternal sociodemographic factors and child characteristics such as birth order.. There are similarities and differences between our findings and those of previous studies. In the large, prospective Millennium Cohort Study, term children who were breastfed for ≥4 months had decreased odds of high total difficulties as measured by the SDQ ...

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 ...

EXCERPTS. British school children could be guinea pigs for controversial new tests for five-year-olds, despite other nations rejecting the trials. The move is disclosed in a contract document published quietly earlier this month by the Department for Education (DfE).. The tablet-based tests, which will be run by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) from next year, are understood to have been rejected by Germany, Sweden, Denmark and Belgium.. Peter Moss, emeritus professor of early years education at University College Londons Institute of Education, said there was concern that the new OECD tests could create pressure on teachers to narrow the curriculum to what was tested, as ministers emphasised the importance of its results.. He said: "The big fear is that its going to reduce the diversity and creativity of approaches to early childhood development, as countries pursue better results in these tests. A lot of people in early years are concerned about that.". The ...

Mothers who eat more salmon before giving birth boost levels of a vital nutrient in their breast milk, but could lower levels of disease-fighting antibodies they pass on while feeding their baby, researchers have found.. Long-chain omega-3 fatty acids, found in oily fish such as salmon, are crucial during early childhood development when they are needed for optimal growth and development. As well as being important for the growth of a babys brain and eyes, they may also help the development of healthy blood vessels, heart, and immune system. As a result, pregnant women are encouraged to eat several servings a week of certain kinds of oily fish known to provide high levels of omega-3.. However, very little is known about the influence of eating oily fish during pregnancy on the omega-3 fatty acid content of the mothers milk, and on immune substances, such as the antibodies passed from mother to baby during breastfeeding. The protection against infection that this provides to vulnerable newborns ...

Well, hmm. This is really bugging me.

I would never, ever expect any child to just sit and stare for more than maybe 5 minutes. People (not just children) just arent wired that way. Mentally, I just cant see how it could even remotely be beneficial, and physically, well its ridiculous ...

With school just around the corner, it is important that all children have a vision screening to ensure that the quality of their eyesight will help, rather than hinder, their learning ability. "Vision plays an extremely important role in childhood development; academically, socially and athletically," says Kara M. Cavuoto, M.D., Assistant Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology at Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, part of UHealth-the University of Miami Health System.. If a young childs eyes cannot send clear images to the brain, his or her vision may become limited in ways that cannot be corrected later in life. If problems are detected early, it may be possible to treat them effectively.. One of the many services that School Health programs offer to students is vision screening. Vision screenings at the pediatricians office or at the school are important since children may not realize they have a vision problem. Parents might recognize the signs of vision impairment before children express having a ...

When a baby is born, its brain is close to 25% of its entire body weight. As a human baby grows, its brain will generate cells on a scale of hundreds of trillions. A babys brain undergoes many important developments up to the age of three. When a baby is born, its essential neurons are already in place; they need only to be developed. Neurons are able to "speak" to each other over synapses (what can be described as a telephone wire). Synapses form after birth, and their job is almost never over. Though synapses will continue to form throughout our lifetime, an exhausting number of synapses are formed in our first three years of life. [8] There is an interesting part of childhood development that takes place in the brain during infancy, it is referred to as "pruning." Pruning is a systematic efficiency tool in the brain that examines synapses and gets rid of the ones that are no longer in use. It is detrimental to a child if they are not stimulated enough, or exposed to enough life experiences. ...

I work full time outside the home, so child care is always a big issue with me. At first, for child care of my son who has OCD (severe anxiety about different things), we used a combination of an in-home day care (only 4-6 children and a very understanding grandmother age women), a preschool run by the school district, and for evening hours a college student getting a degree in childhood development. We recently switched to hosting Au Pairs. These are young people, who are from another country, who want to spend a year or two in the US. They can work for up to 45 hours a week providing child care. We selected someone who was special needs willing and had a degree that gave her the opportunity to work with children with special needs during her internships. This has worked out great for us. We now have one person who really knows our child and plus I have the flexibility to schedules her hours when I need them for child care. ...

Nerve cells in our limbs can regenerate after injury, but neurons in the central nervous system, which includes the brain and spinal cord, cannot. Figuring out why this is the case is critical to helping brain and spinal cord injuries heal.. A study published in the January 26 issue of Neuron may offer a promising solution. Not only did the researchers, Rachid El Bejjani and Marc Hammarlund of Yale University, identify what appears to be a key chemical regulator of neuron repair, but drugs that target this regulator already exist, making the path to clinical treatments easier.. The molecule they identified, called Notch, is a receptor that influences many biochemical pathways inside cells. Scientists used to think that Notch was active only during fetal and childhood development, but increasing evidence suggests that Notch is also involved in neurodegenerative conditions such as Alzheimers disease and stroke. Using C. elegans, a microscopic worm, El Bejjani and Hammarlund showed that Notch ...

Children usually progress in a natural, predictable sequence from one developmental milestone to the next. But each child grows and gains skills at his or her own pace. Some children may be advanced in one area, such as language, but behind in another, such as sensory and motor development.. Milestones usually are grouped into five major areas: physical growth, cognitive development, emotional and social development, language development, and sensory and motor development. ...
What sort of rearing environment has the best effect on the child development? This is perhaps one of the most important questions concerning the well-being of children. Every year, surveys and research are conducted around the world to explore the question of what makes a better environment.. The rearing environment is a term that involves an extremely large number of factors. To see the influence of each factor on child development, the method of cohort research, which follows a large number of children over a long period of time, is generally used.. Cohort research assesses the effect that various environmental factors have on child development according to different measures of development (intelligent tests, language development tests, etc.), but when doing so, it is important not to forget the factors that are attributes of each of the children and their parents (so-called "confounding factors"). These include, for example, gender, premature birth or not (gestational age), birth order, ...

New scientific approaches have dramatically evolved in the decade since The Physiology of Fishes was first published. With the genomic revolution and a heightened understanding of molecular biology, we now have the tools and the knowledge to apply a fresh approach to the study of fishes. Consequently, The Physiology of Fishes, Third Edition is not merely another updating, but rather an entire reworking of the original. To satisfy that need for a fresh approach, the editors have employed a new set of expert contributors steeped in the very latest research; their contemporary perspective pervades the entire text. In addition to new chapters on gas transport, temperature physiology, and stress, as well as one dedicated to functional genomics, readers will discover that many of these new contributors approach their material with a contemporary molecular perspective. While much of the material is new, the editors have completely adhered to the originals style in creating a text that continues to be highly
