Mandarin and English single word processing studied with functional magnetic resonance imaging. (1/279)

The cortical organization of language in bilinguals remains disputed. We studied 24 right-handed fluent bilinguals: 15 exposed to both Mandarin and English before the age of 6 years; and nine exposed to Mandarin in early childhood but English only after the age of 12 years. Blood oxygen level-dependent contrast functional magnetic resonance imaging was performed while subjects performed cued word generation in each language. Fixation was the control task. In both languages, activations were present in the prefrontal, temporal, and parietal regions, and the supplementary motor area. Activations in the prefrontal region were compared by (1) locating peak activations and (2) counting the number of voxels that exceeded a statistical threshold. Although there were differences in the magnitude of activation between the pair of languages, no subject showed significant differences in peak-location or hemispheric asymmetry of activations in the prefrontal language areas. Early and late bilinguals showed a similar pattern of overlapping activations. There are no significant differences in the cortical areas activated for both Mandarin and English at the single word level, irrespective of age of acquisition of either language.  (+info)

Child outcomes when child care center classes meet recommended standards for quality. NICHD Early Child Care Research Network. (2/279)

OBJECTIVES: This study assessed outcomes for children when child care centers meet recommended care standards. METHODS: Data from the NICHD Study of Early Child Care were used to examine the association between meeting standards for child-staff ratios, group sizes, caregiver training, and caregiver education and children's development at 24 and 36 months of age. RESULTS: There were 5 major findings: (1) most classes observed did not meet all 4 recommended standards (compliance ranged from 10% at 6 months of age to 34% at 36 months of age); (2) linear associations were found between number of standards met and child outcomes, and this was more the case at 36 months than at 24 months of age: (3) there was no evidence of threshold effects; (4) children in classes that met more standards had better school readiness and language comprehension scores as well as fewer behavior problems at 36 months of age; and (5) child outcomes were predicted by child-staff ratio at 24 months and caregiver training and education at 36 months of age. CONCLUSIONS: Outcomes were better when children attended classes that met recommended child-staff ratios and recommended levels of caregiver training and education.  (+info)

Maternal thyroid deficiency during pregnancy and subsequent neuropsychological development of the child. (3/279)

BACKGROUND: When thyroid deficiency occurs simultaneously in a pregnant woman and her fetus, the child's neuropsychological development is adversely affected. Whether developmental problems occur when only the mother has hypothyroidism during pregnancy is not known. METHODS: In 1996 and 1997, we measured thyrotropin in stored serum samples collected from 25,216 pregnant women between January 1987 and March 1990. We then located 47 women with serum thyrotropin concentrations at or above the 99.7th percentile of the values for all the pregnant women, 15 women with values between the 98th and 99.6th percentiles, inclusive, in combination with low thyroxine levels, and 124 matched women with normal values. Their seven-to-nine-year-old children, none of whom had hypothyroidism as newborns, underwent 15 tests relating to intelligence, attention, language, reading ability, school performance, and visual-motor performance. RESULTS: The children of the 62 women with high serum thyrotropin concentrations performed slightly less well on all 15 tests. Their full-scale IQ scores on the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children, third edition, averaged 4 points lower than those of the children of the 124 matched control women (P= 0.06); 15 percent had scores of 85 or less, as compared with 5 percent of the matched control children. Of the 62 women with thyroid deficiency, 48 were not treated for the condition during the pregnancy under study. The full-scale IQ scores of their children averaged 7 points lower than those of the 124 matched control children (P=0.005); 19 percent had scores of 85 or less. Eleven years after the pregnancy under study, 64 percent of the untreated women and 4 percent of the matched control women had confirmed hypothyroidism. CONCLUSIONS: Undiagnosed hypothyroidism in pregnant women may adversely affect their fetuses; therefore, screening for thyroid deficiency during pregnancy may be warranted.  (+info)

Effect of early or delayed insertion of tympanostomy tubes for persistent otitis media on developmental outcomes at the age of three years. (4/279)

BACKGROUND: A main indication for the insertion of tympanostomy tubes in infants and young children is persistent otitis media with effusion, reflecting concern that this condition may cause lasting impairments of speech, language, cognitive, and psychosocial development. However, evidence of such relations is inconclusive, and evidence is lacking that the insertion of tympanostomy tubes prevents developmental impairment. METHODS: We enrolled 6350 healthy infants from 2 to 61 days of age and evaluated them regularly for middle-ear effusion. Before the age of three years 429 children with persistent effusion were randomly assigned to have tympanostomy tubes inserted either as soon as possible or up to nine months later if effusion persisted. In 402 of these children we assessed speech, language, cognition, and psychosocial development at the age of three years. RESULTS: By the age of three years, 169 children in the early-treatment group (82 percent) and 66 children in the late-treatment group (34 percent) had received tympanostomy tubes. There were no significant differences between the early-treatment group and the late-treatment group at the age of three years in the mean (+/-SD) scores on the Number of Different Words test, a measure of word diversity (124+/-32 and 126+/-30, respectively); the Percentage of Consonants Correct-Revised test, a measure of speech-sound production (85+/-7 vs. 86+/-7); the General Cognitive Index of McCarthy Scales of Children's Abilities (99+/-14 vs. 101+/-13); or on measures of receptive language, sentence length, grammatical complexity, parent-child stress, and behavior. CONCLUSIONS: In children younger than three years of age who have persistent otitis media, prompt insertion of tympanostomy tubes does not measurably improve developmental outcomes at the age of three years.  (+info)

Signing and lexical development in children with Down syndrome. (5/279)

Language development in children with Down syndrome is delayed, on average, relative to general cognitive, motor and social development, and there is also evidence for specific delays in morphology and syntax, with many adults showing persistent problems in these areas. It appears that the combined use of signed and spoken input can boost early language development significantly, this evidence coming initially from single case-studies, and more recently from larger scale controlled studies. Research with typically developing hearing and deaf children, as well as children with Down syndrome, has demonstrated the importance of establishing joint attention for vocabulary development. Furthermore, studies carried out with children with Down syndrome indicate that reducing attentional demands may be especially important in scaffolding language development in this group. The use of signing strategies which have been found to facilitate language development in deaf children when signing to children with Down syndrome is discussed, as is the need for further research on this topic and on the importance of joint attention for the use of other augmentative and alternative communication systems, such as graphic symbol and picture systems.  (+info)

Exposure to Reach Out and Read and vocabulary outcomes in inner city preschoolers. (6/279)

To examine the association between exposure to Reach Out and Read and vocabulary outcomes in children, a consecutive sample of 200 parent/child pairs was studied at two inner-city health centers. Children at clinic A were exposed to Reach Out and Read, a clinic-based literacy intervention, for 3 years at the time of the study; children at clinic B were unexposed. Main outcome measures were the "Expressive and Receptive One Word Picture Vocabulary Tests" to measure vocabulary in the children and the "Home Literacy Orientation" scale and "READ" subscale of the STIMQ, to measure book-sharing activities. A total of 200 subjects participated, and the mean age of children was 3.8 years. Demographic characteristics were comparable for both clinics at baseline. Exposed children scored higher on receptive vocabulary (81.5 vs. 74.3; p = 0.005). They also scored higher on both the Home Literacy Orientation scale (4.3 vs. 3.3; p = 0.002) and the STIMQ-READ (12.6 vs. 11.0; p = 0.056). There were no differences in expressive vocabulary scores between the two sites (79.5 vs. 77.5; p = 0.26). In conclusion, we found a positive association between exposure to Reach Out and Read and better receptive vocabulary scores. We also found higher scores for Reach Out and Read-exposed children on measures of home reading activities.  (+info)

Methods for characterizing participants' nonmainstream dialect use in child language research. (7/279)

Three different approaches to the characterization of research participants' nonmainstream dialect use can be found in the literature. They include listener judgment ratings, type-based counts of nonmainstream pattern use, and token-based counts. In this paper, we examined these three approaches, as well as shortcuts to these methods, using language samples from 93 children previously described in J. Oetting and J. McDonald (2001). Nonmainstream dialects represented in the samples included rural Louisiana versions of Southern White English (SWE) and Southern African American English (SAAE). Depending on the method and shortcut used, correct dialect classifications (SWE or SAAE) were made for 88% to 97% of the participants; however, regression algorithms had to be applied to the type- and token-based results to achieve these outcomes. For characterizing the rate at which the participants produced the nonmainstream patterns, the token-based methods were found to be superior to the others, but estimates from all approaches were moderately to highly correlated with each other. When type- and/or token-based methods were used to characterize participants' dialect type and rate, the number of patterns included in the analyses could be substantially reduced without significantly affecting the validity of the outcomes. These findings have important implications for future child language studies that are done within the context of dialect diversity.  (+info)

An infant-based assessment of early lexicon acquisition. (8/279)

The majority of research on the acquisition of spoken language has focused on language production, due to difficulties in the assessment of comprehension. A primary limitation to comprehension assessment is maintaining the interest and attention of younger infants. We have developed an assessment procedure that addresses the need for an extensive performance-based measure of comprehension in the 2nd year of life. In the interest of developing an engaging approach that takes into account infants' limited attention capabilities, we designed an assessment based on touchscreen technology. This approach builds upon prior research by combining standardization and complexity with an engaging infant-friendly interface. Data suggest that the touchscreen procedure is effective in eliciting and maintaining infant attention and will yield more extensive and reliable estimates of early comprehension than do other procedures. The software to implement the assessment is available free of charge for academic purposes.  (+info)

This is a systematic presentation of the parametric approach to child language. Linguistic theory seeks to specify the range of grammars permitted by the human language faculty and thereby to specify the childs during language acquisition. Theories of language variation have central implications for the study of child language, and vice versa. Yet the acquisitional predictions of such theories are seldom tested against attested data.

Its a phrase were hearing more and more: the Word Gap. It is essentially when some children show up to school knowing substantially fewer words than their peers. This brings up the importance of talking a lot with our young children to help foster their vocabulary development so that they are best prepared to learn to read and succeed in school. But this might leave you wondering, what am I supposed to talk about? Or, what kind of talk is most helpful for my child? These are important questions and the answers depend on how old your child is. However, one thing that is consistently helpful is engaging your child in conversations.. At all ages providing children with the opportunities to take turns in conversations, to ask and answer questions, to discuss topics they are interested in, and to engage in conversations on a variety of topics will promote learning. Here are a few talking tips to engage children of different ages in conversation:. ...

This study examines the longitudinal relationships between home learning experiences and early number skills. The counting, number transcoding and calculation skills of 274 children were assessed in the penultimate term of preschool (Mage = 4:0). Prior to these assessments, parents completed questionnaires that surveyed the frequency of the childrens home learning experiences. Three types of experiences were indexed: code-focused home literacy experiences that focus on the phonological and orthographic features of language, meaning-focused home literacy experiences that focus on sharing the meaning of language and text, and home number experiences. The childrens language abilities (phonological awareness and vocabulary) and nonverbal abilities (inhibitory control and nonverbal reasoning) were assessed in the final term of preschool (Mage = 4:3). Their number skills were reassessed in the final term of the first year of primary school (Mage = 5:3). Home letter-sound interaction experiences ...

About the Language Learning Process Though learning a language is a life time journey, most of the journey takes place in the early years. In a childs life, the first five years is normally the time when brain development is at its peak. The child can learn a lot of things through their experiences as they are more receptive. It has been proven by studies that children learn languages when they are involved in back and forth interactions with important adults in their family. In order for the child to be motivated to learn a parent needs to give a good feedback any time the child communicates through gesture, sound or a word.. A childs language learning process is reinforced by responsive feedback. When a child does not receive the essential feedback that would have built their language, they communicate less or do not communicate at all. Children will communicate less if their family members talk less or when the children are talked to less. Adult family members should always respond to any ...

Many children who are late talkers go on to develop normal language, but others go on to have longer-term language difficulties. In this study, we considered which factors were predictive of persistent problems in late talkers. Parental report of expressive vocabulary at 18 months of age was used to select 26 late talkers and 70 average talkers, who were assessed for language and cognitive ability at 20 months of age. Follow-up at 4 years of age was carried out for 24 late and 58 average talkers. A psychometric test battery was used to categorize children in terms of language status (unimpaired or impaired) and nonverbal ability (normal range or more than 1 SD below average). The vocabulary and non-word repetition skills of the accompanying parent were also assessed. Among the late talkers, seven (29%) met our criteria for specific language impairment (SLI) at 4 years of age, and a further two (8%) had low nonverbal ability. In the group of average talkers, eight (14%) met the criteria for SLI at 4

One of the most remarkable properties of humans is that we acquire a very complex linguistic interactional system early in life. Along the way, children make adjustments to how they produce utterances and interpret what they hear. Understanding out how we do this takes us on a fascinating journey, visiting research highlights that speak to the core of human cognition and social interaction. What psycholinguistic processes explain an utterance such as Nail polish me! or We holded the baby rabbits? What conclusions can we draw about what is universal in language development versus what is language or culture specific? Do children always imitate their care-givers or do they bring innovations into a language? We will explore the development of language abilities from several perspectives, including unilingual and multilingual contexts, and across languages of different types, drawing on differing theoretical approaches. ...

A bilingual-monolingual comparison of young childrens vocabulary size: Evidence from comprehension and production - Volume 35 Issue 6 - ANNICK DE HOUWER, MARC H. BORNSTEIN, DIANE L. PUTNICK
The clinical significance of sentence repetition tasks (SRTs) for assessing childrens language ability is well-recognized. SRT has been identified as a good clinical marker for children with (specific) language impairment as it shows high diagnostic accuracy levels. Furthermore, qualitative analysis of repetition samples can provide information to be used for intervention protocols. Despite the fact that SRT is a familiar task in assessment batteries across several languages, it has not yet been measured and validated in bilectal settings, such as Cypriot Greek, where the need for an accurate screening tool is urgent. The aims of the current study are three-fold. First, the performance of a group of (Cypriot) Greek-speaking children identified with SLI is evaluated using a SRT that elicits complex morphosyntactic structures. Second, the accuracy level of the SRT for the identification of SLI is explored. Third, a broad error analysis is carried out to examine and compare the morphosyntactic abilities
Interactions between neurons and their environment during development. Cell Adhesion Molecules Drive Neuronal Development: Our brains are an amazing network of cells, connected by axons and dendrites that form the conduits for our thoughts and actions. One of the fundamental questions of neuroscience is to understand how these connections form. As such these cells and their processes must differentiate appropriate partners from inappropriate targets. The fidelity with which this happens is truly astounding. Neuroscientists have found that molecules outside the cells instruct all the stages of neural development. For example growth factors secreted from other cells instruct nerve cells to adopt the correct fate, diffusible cues inform neurons where potential synaptic partners might be located and cell surface cues can tell them when they have reached their targets. Work in the Ackley Lab seeks to understand the contribution of cell adhesion molecules to the process of neural development, and we ...

MRI shows association between reading to young children and brain activity. Study provides new evidence that book sharing in early childhood may promote brain development supporting reading readiness.. Among the advice new parents receive is to read to their babies early and often. The hope is that sharing books together will help childrens language development and eventually, turn them into successful readers.. Now there is evidence that reading to young children is in fact associated with differences in brain activity supporting early reading skills. The research will be presented Saturday, April 25 at the Pediatric Academic Societies (PAS) annual meeting in San Diego.. We are excited to show, for the first time, that reading exposure during the critical stage of development prior to kindergarten seems to have a meaningful, measurable impact on how a childs brain processes stories and may help predict reading success, said study author John Hutton, MD, National Research Service Award ...
The CI2018 Emerging Issues Symposium is a forum for hearing health clinicians, scientists, students and governmental officials to come together to share research and best clinical practices relating to cochlear implants and other implantable auditory devices. The Symposium will feature 2 ½ days of clinical research presentations. This popular format combines invited speakers and panels on key emerging issues as well as submitted podium and poster presentations.. The emerging issues format allows an in-depth look at topics needing greater exploration to advance the field. With CI candidacy expansion, there is a need to address ways to appropriately serve new recipients as well as previously implanted individuals who require care throughout their lifetime. In the pediatric realm, children who are deaf are being identified at birth and there is a need for parents to support their CI childs language development at an earlier age.. Four clinical research topics were identified that are particularly ...
Projects. Human Genetic Studies: We use human genetic methods such as genetic association and sequencing studies to identify specific genes and genetic elements that contribute to dyslexia and language impairment. Methods range from specific interrogation of the DYX2 risk locus on chromosome 6p22 with a dense marker panel, to hypothesis-free methods such as genome-wide association and sequencing studies. We have collaborated with groups across the country and internationally to ascertain and collect subjects. Ongoing collaborations include the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children (ALSPAC) at the University of Bristol (UK), the Colorado Learning Disabilities Research Center at the University of Colorado-Boulder, The Child Language Research Center at the University of Iowa, Case Western Reserve University, as well as numerous other national and international collaborators. Our goal for these studies is to identify genetic elements that substantially contribute to reading- and ...
Youngsters who can lick their lips, blow bubbles and pretend that a building block is a car are most likely to find learning language easy, according to a new study funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC). Psychologists at Lancaster University, led by Dr Katie Alcock, found strong links between these movement, or motor and thinking, or cognitive, skills and childrens language abilities. ...
The surge of research activity focussing on childrens acquisition of verbs (e.g., Tomasello and Merriman 1996) addresses some fundamental questions: Just how variable across languages, and across individual children, is the process of verb learning? How specific are arguments to particular verbs in early child language? How does the grammatical category Verb develop? The position of Universal Grammar, that a verb category is early, contrasts with that of Tomasello (1992), Pine and Lieven and their colleagues (1996, in press), and many others, that children develop a verb category slowly, gradually building up subcategorizations of verbs around pragmatic, syntactic, and semantic properties of the language they are exposed to. On this latter view, one would expect the language which the child is learning, the cultural milieu and the nature of the interactions in which the child is engaged, to influence the process of acquiring verb argument structures. This paper explores these issues by ...

The words your child knows and can use in order to communicate or read are defined as his vocabulary. By increasing the size of your childs vocabulary, you can effectively increase the level at which your child is capable of reading, writing, and speaking.. The NRP says Children learn the meanings of most words indirectly, through everyday experiences with oral and written language. Children learn the words through everyday conversation with peers, adults, through shows they watch, and through listening to books that are read aloud.. Therefore, one of the easiest ways to increase your childs vocabulary is to read aloud to him on a daily basis. You can also use new, unfamiliar words in conversations with your child. Children learn new words best when the words are used in context, so using new words appropriately and purposefully in conversation will help convey meaning, pronunciation, and will expand your childs vocabulary.. Specific word instruction, or teaching individual words, can ...

The extent of research on childrens speech in general and on disordered speech specifically is very limited. In this article, we describe the process of creating databases of childrens speech and the possibilities for using such databases, which have been created by the LANNA research group in the Faculty of Electrical Engineering at Czech Technical University in Prague. These databases have been principally compiled for medical research but also for use in other areas, such as linguistics. Two databases were recorded: one for healthy childrens speech (recorded in kindergarten and in the first level of elementary school) and the other for pathological speech of children with a Specific Language Impairment (recorded at a surgery of speech and language therapists and at the hospital ...
In an increasingly diverse society, early language development is a focal point of early childhood education and care. Promotion of language development is considered to be most efficient if it is practiced the entire day and integrated into all dyadic and group activities. The objective of SEIKA-NRW is to identify the factors that are most effective in promoting childrens language and overall development. In this project funded by the Ministry of Family Affairs of North-Rhine Westfalia (MFKJKS), we study the impact of additional funding on language and overall development over time in Kitas (daycare centers). The set-up of this study is a natural laboratory. About half of the 9.600 Kitas in this state receive additional funding. The distribution of these financial resources through the regional youth services reveals a very similar overall pattern, yet we find sufficient deviation to permit propensity score matching. This allows us to identify so-called triplets. Each triplet consists of 3 ...
Twin studies suggest that expressive vocabulary at ~24 months is modestly heritable. However, the genes influencing this early linguistic phenotype are unknown. Here we conduct a genome-wide screen and follow-up study of expressive vocabulary in toddlers of European descent from up to four studies of the EArly Genetics and Lifecourse Epidemiology consortium, analysing an early (15-18 months, one-word stage, NTotal=8,889) and a later (24-30 months, two-word stage, NTotal=10,819) phase of language acquisition. For the early phase, one single-nucleotide polymorphism (rs7642482) at 3p12.3 near ​ROBO2, encoding a conserved axon-binding receptor, reaches the genome-wide significance level (P=1.3 × 10−8) in the combined sample. This association links language-related common genetic variation in the general population to a potential autism susceptibility locus and a linkage region for dyslexia, speech-sound disorder and reading. The contribution of common genetic influences is, although modest, ...
THURSDAY, Oct. 31 (HealthDay News) -- The more that adults talk to toddlers, the more quickly the childrens language skills develop, according to a small new study.. The study included 29 children, 19 months old, from low-income Hispanic families. Each child was fitted with a small audio recorder that captured all the sounds he or she heard during the day in their homes.. The recordings were analyzed to distinguish between adult speech directed at the toddlers and speech they only overheard, such as when a parent or other caregiver was on the phone or talking with another adult.. The researchers found large differences between families in the amount of child-directed speech that toddlers heard from adults. One child heard more than 12,000 words of child-directed speech in a day, while another heard only 670, according to the study released online recently in the journal Psychological Science. Thats just 67 words per hour, less speech than youd hear in a 30-second commercial, study co-author ...
ASD may not be based on genetic mutations alone. The famous feral child Kaspar Hauser, who was left in social depravity for years (see my post with the title Theory of Mind I: Feral Children & Language Development published online Dec. 31, 2008), might have well been diagnosed with ASD today. Despite his delayed entry into civil life, the adolescent Kaspar was able to learn language, calculus, fine arts and social skills from various caretakers and a professor, in whose hands he seemed to have thrived. In his time, Kaspar was cast as a devious, good-for-nothing idiot. By contrast, with emerging expertise in child psychology and special education, modern-day children on the spectrum may reap benefit from early behavioral interventions that stimulate and strengthen nerve cell connections mediated by our own endogenous neurotransmitters and neuromodulators without the need for genomic sequencing and psychoactive drugs (Dawson and others, 2009 ...
Phases of Child Language Acquisition A youngster begins to speak with people around him/her since birth, in spite of the fact that in the initial barely any months this correspondence happens on a non-verbal level. Be that as it may, as a kid grows genuinely, he/she bit by bit gets language aptitudes. In general, youngster language obtaining starts from phonological turn of events and continues to syntactic and semantic turn of events. The point of the current exposition is to investigate three significant phases of the principal language obtaining (phonological, syntactic and semantic). In spite of the fact that etymologists and different researchers have concurred in conclusion that language is a procedure of securing (as opposed to the way toward learning), they give conflicting speculations of youngster language procurement (Cole, 1996). Among the most popular hypotheses are a support hypothesis, an impersonation hypothesis, a basic age hypothesis and a similarity hypothesis. Regardless of ...
011) 683-7200/01/ In order to meet a greater number of childrens needs, Cotlands offers play sessions for birth to six year olds who do not have access to early learning opportunities. Our programmes are based on best practice principles ensuring the holistic development of each of the children we serve.

A toy library is a high impact, cost effective non-centre based programme that gives children, their families, early learning facilitators and ECD practitioners access to a collection of carefully selected educational play materials, early learning sessions and toys in their own communities and households. The main focus is on ensuring that the young child has access to educational development opportunities and will be ready ...
Dear Manfred: I think that Leontiev and Vygotsky disagreed, and they disagreed fundamentally. For Leontiev, language use is essentially ancillary; that is, it is there to help along material processes (perception in the child and labor in the adult) which would function without language. A rose is a rose by any other name, and in fact a rose is a rose without any name at all. For Vygotsky language use is not ancillary at all. This is because the specifically human functions--the things that make language into language and the things that make human beings into truly human beings--are actually produced by language itself (verbal thinking, social thinking, culture, higher psychological processes, whatever we wish to call them). A name is a name without a rose. Child language isnt brought into being through perception; animals do perception pretty well, and they never develop language. It would be much truer to say that it is brought into being through gesture, or that it arises alongside gesture. ...
At your childs school Open House, the teacher explained that every student needs to read for 20 minutes every night. Several questions came to mind. What is my child supposed to read? How do I know what to pick for my child? Can my child pick their own book?. You have so many questions about this simple one task. If reading independently has not developed yet for your child, you should be reading to your child for at least 20 minutes a day. In fact, you should read to your elementary school-age child even when reading is done independently, for comprehension and vocabulary development.. Selecting books together can be a fun and rewarding experience if you are armed with some basic knowledge about the process. Here are some Simple Book Selection Steps:.

Ive watched a few infomercials and read lots of information about healthy colons and healthy bowel movements. Ive long been told that adult bowel movements are small in diameter because of the junk caked up within the walls of the digestive system.

To back up the claim they refer to the size of a childs stool (heres your last chance to click away if youre squeamish).. Unfortunately, Ive had the …er…pleasure (?) of having to use the bathroom after a child has forgotten to flush.

There are a number of stages that infants and toddlers go through in learning a language, and though each individual may go through the various stages at a different time in his or her young life, the stages normally remain the same for all of them. The stages an infant will go through are as follows; usually an infant will learn to babble or coo by the time they are three months old. From that time until they are 4 to 6 months old is when they begin to recognize individual sounds and their parents and siblings voices ...

Money is one of the most affective empathy switches ever devised and is thus highly coveted by those driven by the need to control others. Its no coincidence that both mommy and money are nearly homonyms. We grow up. We become our own mommy, right? Wrong. Mommy becomes money but we can never become money. Thus we languish forever always needing more money. Never enough. Money infantilizes us. Allows us to revert to our least refined self.

  • These developmental delays were evident even when the researchers took into account factors such as the education and income of mothers, which are also linked to their children's language and cognitive skills. (
  • The researchers used data on 190 families from the Kids in Columbus Study , a Crane Center research project that followed children born into low-income families in Columbus for five years after birth. (
  • The researchers used a standardized test that examines children's understanding and expression of language - for example, recognition of objects and people, following directions, and naming objects and pictures. (
  • That finding, the researchers say, underscores the importance of environment during this critical period for language. (
  • The researchers imaged the brains of 108 children between ages 1 and 6, looking for myelin growth in and around areas of the brain known to support language. (
  • To investigate that relationship, the researchers compared the brain scans to a battery of language tests given to each child in the study. (

  • A new study, led by researchers at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, found mild traits, not strong enough to provoke a diagnosis of autism, seem to be present in the siblings of affected children at significantly higher rates than seen in the general population. (
  • Mild symptoms, called quantitative traits, may be confounding studies that compare children with autism to their siblings," says first author John N. Constantino, MD. "Researchers presume one child is affected, and the other is not, but our findings suggest that although one child may have autism while the other does not, it's very possible both children are affected to some degree by genes that contribute to autism. (
  • That's important, Constantino says, because in studies involving DNA tests, brain imaging or biological comparisons between affected children and their unaffected siblings, researchers traditionally assume undiagnosed children are unaffected. (
  • The researchers said a more important finding was that the childhood stroke survivors had significantly lower visual-motor function and language scores than other children. (
  • The findings indicate that childhood stroke survivors should be thoroughly evaluated for the need for targeted interventions to improve visual-motor and language skills, the researchers said. (
  • A recent study from the researchers of Norwegian Institute of Public Health suggests that children whose mothers took folic acid supplements early in pregnancy were less likely to have severe language delays at the age of 3. (

(
  • But researchers also found that bilinguals are slower to acquire vocabulary than are monolinguals, because bilinguals must divide their time between two languages while monolinguals focus on only one. (
  • In the study, the researchers tested verbal and nonverbal cognitive abilities of 104 6-year-old children from the Toronto area. (
  • In a previous ELS application involving participants with fragile X syndrome, the researchers derived five language outcome measures: talkativeness, lexical diversity (vocabulary), syntax, dysfluency (utterance planning) and unintelligibility (speech articulation). (
  • Researchers studied 2,581 families in the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Project and a control group in 17 communities across the U.S. Within a subgroup of 1,101, they explored in-depth relations between reading and child outcomes for English- and Spanish-speaking families. (
  • The researchers also found that most children in the study, with the exception of non-English speaking children, had access to picture books. (
  • Children with autism experience more tantrums than children without, according to the researchers, and speech therapists, preschool teachers, parents and others often blame these frequent outbursts on speech and language problems. (
  • To investigate this correlation, the researchers studied the relationship between language and tantrum frequency in 240 children with autism between the ages of 15 and 71 months of age. (
  • Compared to previous studies, "our study shows that the brain function of higher fit kids is different, in the sense that they appear to be able to better allocate resources in the brain towards aspects of cognition that support reading comprehension," Hillman said. (
  • Teachers and parents must be vigilant in observing difficulties with language comprehension, reading and spelling in children and young people with autism, Asperger's syndrome and ADHD. (
  • Both reading and spelling words and reading comprehension seem to be difficult for a lot of children with ADHD. (
  • The primary goal of the present study is to develop novel methods for testing language comprehension of children with autism, and to use these methods to test developmental changes in language in preschool-aged children. (
  • The feasibility of using this method with preschool-aged autistic children will be evaluated using a series of experimental tasks to test the children's comprehension of various language structures (nouns, verbs, relational language, noun phrases, verb phrases, and word order). (
  • This research will pave the way for developing new approaches to evaluating the comprehension skills of children with autism that can be used in research and applied clinical settings. (
  • English-speaking mothers who begin reading to their children at a very early age have toddlers with greater language comprehension, larger, more expressive vocabularies and higher cognitive scores by the age of 2. (
  • The aim of this study was to examine the relationship among various aspects of executive functions (inhibitory control, working memory, planning and cognitive flexibility) and language comprehension in preschool children. (
  • The Reynell Developmental Language Scales were used for the assessment of language comprehension. (
  • The results showed that the only significant predictors of language comprehension were verbal working memory, as measured by the Digit Span task, and inhibitory control, as measured by the Grass/Snow task. (
  • This study emphasises the importance of inhibitory control and working memory for language comprehension in preschool children. (
  • Language comprehension has been studied considerably less than language production. (
  • Moreover, the "cognitive infrastructure", included in both "breaking" the language code and the comprehension of a complex symbolic system (like language), has been largely understudied. (
  • When the scores of participants with Indian Classical music training were compared with the scores of the untrained group, the comprehension and vocabulary advantage persisted, indicating that the L2 advantage was not simply an artefact of increased language familiarity that is likely to arise from Western music training.

  • New school-year program for preschoolers with speech-language delays! (
  • What Are Speech or Language Delays? (
  • Many kids with speech delays have oral-motor problems. (
  • How Are Speech or Language Delays Diagnosed? (
  • Recognizing and treating speech and language delays early on is the best approach. (
  • Language delays are more critical than speech issues because language is a measure of intelligence. (
  • Language and speech delays can occur because the brain is working in a different fashion. (
  • Siblings of children with autism have more frequent language delays and other subtle characteristics of the disorder than previously understood. (
  • The study found that approximately one in five siblings thought to be unaffected experienced language delays or speech problems early in life. (
  • According to the study published in Journal of the American Medical Association, the mother's use of folic acid four to eight weeks after conception is associated with a reduced risk of severe language delays in the child. (
  • The study revealed that out of the 38,954 children involved in the study, 204 had severe language delays. (
  • I absolutely love working with children with speech and language delays and children on the autism spectrum. (
  • Individuals with Down syndrome frequently have speech and language delays that might severely affect their independence and successful community inclusion. (
  • Developmental delays and certain medical conditions place children at risk for language difficulties. (
  • Children with developmental disabilities including autism spectrum disorder may also have difficulties with speech and language. (
  • Overall, learning more than one language does not cause language disorders, but children may not follow exactly the same developmental milestones as those who learn only one language. (
  • For this study, parents provided information about their children using the Social Responsiveness Scale, a survey developed at Washington University that identifies traits associated with autism and autism spectrum disorders such as Asperger Syndrome and Pervasive Developmental Disorder. (
  • Children with language difficulties are sometimes said to have a developmental delay or be a late talker. (
  • However my main motivation and interest has been developmental disorders - children growing up with difficulties. (
  • I am interested in how cognition and language interact across different types of developmental disorder, for example autism, developmental language impairment, attention deficit disorder,' says Nikki. (
  • But my specialism is really developmental language impairment (DLI) - what it looks like over time, what associated difficulties these young people have, and what is hindering them or helping them. (
  • So while great strides have been made over the past few decades, with a great deal of progress made in establishing some key facts about developmental language difficulties especially regarding associated mechanisms such as memory, emotional health and long term outcomes, there is still much to be done to help raise awareness of these issues. (
  • Youth who were under 12, had phrase-level speech or less, and had a 4-year-old developmental level or lower found it more difficult to complete. (
  • Children will be invited to return six months after their initial testing to repeat the experiments and test the sensitivity of eye-tracking measures to developmental changes in language knowledge. (
  • The direction of the developmental pathways between EF skills and language skills is unclear. (
  • We had children in our sample with clear speech and enough intelligence to be able to communicate, and their tantrums were just as high in that group,' said Cheryl D. Tierney, associate professor of pediatrics, College of Medicine, and section chief, behavior and developmental pediatrics, Penn State Children's Hospital. (
  • Children and youth with a diagnosed or suspected developmental delay. (
  • This study is the first, to our knowledge, to have longitudinally assessed associations between media exposure in infancy and subsequent developmental outcomes in children from families with low socioeconomic status in the United States. (
  • Cost Action IS1406 is a four-year project, which began in December 2014, designed to enhance children's oral language skills by bringing key people together to focus on interventions for children with difficulties learning their first language. (
  • Remember, most children outgrow speaking difficulties, such as pronouncing R's and W's. (
  • Sometimes children have problems with oral-motor issues, which means there is not enough communication between the areas in the brain that are responsible for speech, which causes the child to face difficulties when it comes to coordinating his lips, tongue and jaw to make sounds. (
  • Because there are many types of speech difficulties -- including speech delay, childhood apraxia of speech, articulation/phonology, dysarthria, velopharyngeal dysfunction, velopharyngeal insufficiency, hypernasality, and resonance disorders -- it is important to determine which specific issue(s) a child has so we can provide therapies that will help the most. (
  • Speech and language difficulties can contribute to problems with reading, spelling, and writing. (
  • We know that language has different elements, and that atypical language can occur alongside other difficulties or without any other explanation,' says Nikki. (
  • What we don't know is how cognition and language inter-relate or why emotional difficulties are linked to DLI, and we don't really know how to help these young people efficiently. (
  • Second, we need to develop better methods of measuring language in children with severe difficulties and across a wider age range. (
  • School based language intervention is also very useful to help your child develop skills and strategies to cope with their difficulties. (
  • Schools and special education teachers can help set up individualised education programs for children who have language difficulties. (
  • Speech-language pathologists at the Center for Childhood Communication at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) evaluate and treat children who have difficulties with communication and swallowing. (
  • Feeding and swallowing - Children with feeding or swallowing difficulties require a team assessment. (
  • More specifically, children born PT show an increased risk for behavioral and attention difficulties [ 7 , 8 ]. (
  • For complex language functions, in fact, PT's difficulties may even increase while growing up [ 14 ]. (
  • Findings showed that neighborhood pollution, mold in the house and pesticide use were not significantly linked to child outcomes. (
  • But the more household chemicals mothers reported using regularly after childbirth, the lower the child language and cognitive outcomes at 2 years of age. (
  • There was no link between chemical use during pregnancy and child outcomes, possibly because mothers reported using significantly fewer chemicals during pregnancy. (
  • With the number of children getting cochlear implants and their parents not using sign language with them, what are their outcomes in mainstream schools…are they still affected like deaf signing children (missing out on full access)? (
  • Outcomes for children with ASD represent a broad continuum, with only a small percentage achieving independence and full employment as adults (Howlin, Goode, Hutton, & Rutter, 2004). (
  • However there are real concerns as research shows that these sub-groups of children are also vulnerable at an early age and can be at a disadvantage when it comes to economic well-being, health outcomes, safety, and behavioral concerns and community connectedness - all of which affect educational achievement. (
  • Dr. Davis-Kean is Professor of Psychology at the University of Michigan where her research focuses on the various pathways that the socio-economic status (SES) of parents relates to the cognitive/achievement outcomes of their children. (
  • One thing is very clear: The kids don't use emoji like adults or teens do. (
  • Conversely, the kids use object emoji, like food and animals, far more than adults or teens do. (
  • Speak frequently with other adults for your child to observe. (
  • Previous studies with children and adults, "have repeatedly demonstrated an effect of increases in either physical activity in one's lifestyle or improvements in aerobic fitness, and the implications of those health behaviors for brain structure, brain function and cognitive performance," Hillman concluded. (
  • A new corpus of spontaneous conversations between adults and children is examined for evidence that adults simplify their vocabulary choices when speaking with young children. (
  • The results, which met the predicted pattern, provide comprehensive evidence that language is tied to general-purpose systems both in children acquiring their native language and adults learning an additional language. (
  • Nevertheless, similar to adults, children's level of linguistic ability varies with circumstances and languages. (
  • Contrary to the adults, the children tend to acquire more when the foreign language is in the sound track than in the subtitles. (
  • There is a common pervasive misbelief that children with autism have more tantrum behaviors because they have difficulty communicating their wants and their needs to caregivers and other adults,' Tierney explained. (
  • Personally I don't think it's good for children or adults really - my children are abominable after a stint of TV anyway. (
  • Just like adults, children can also benefit from therapy. (
  • This book investigates how bilingualism affects children's language, cognitive and narrative abilities. (
  • Drawing on new studies of children exposed to two languages from birth (English and Cantonese), this book demonstrates how childhood bilingualism develops naturally in response to the two languages in the children's environment. (
  • Bilingualism is now largely seen as being beneficial to children but there remains a view that it can be confusing, and so potentially detrimental to them," study leader Fraser Lauchlan, a lecturer at the University of Strathclyde's School of Psychological Sciences & Health, said in a university news release. (
  • Over the past ten years there has been a major shift in our understandings of language, bilingualism and bilingual education which show the learning advantages of using more than one language in the classroom for learning. (
  • Communicating thoughts using language (expressive language). (
  • It focuses on expressive language (nonsense, names, idioms, allusions, puns, and dialects) and provides guidance for translators about how to translate such linguistic features without making assumptions about the reader's capabilities and without drastically changing the work. (
  • Expressive language disorder. (
  • A child with expressive language disorder has trouble using language. (
  • Expressive language is a child's ability to express themselves and get their meaning across through speaking or writing. (
  • Language also encompasses nonverbal as well as written and verbal communication. (
  • Correlation between language and nonverbal cognitive ability in individuals with Noonan syndrome. (
  • Model depicting the relationship between Noonan syndrome genotype ( PTPN11 vs. SOS1 mutation) and language ability, with nonverbal cognitive ability as a mediator. (

  • My older kids mastered the vocabulary after just a couple of rounds of gameplay, so this is an app they'll outgrow quickly. (
  • Overall, though, I think Baby Flash Cards packs a lot of learning into a free app, and I'm watching my kids effortlessly absorb large chunks of vocabulary -- which is the goal behind any kind of language flashcard game. (
  • The children completed baseline and experimental tasks measuring their vocabulary, grammar, cognitive skills, and narrative production abilities. (
  • All children will be asked to complete a battery of 1) standardized measures assessing speech, language and cognition and 2) experimental computer tasks designed to assess vocabulary and grammar. (
  • A baby's first words are often Mama or Dada, but new research by a Florida State University psychology professor delves into how children build on these early words to create a colorful vocabulary. (
  • This study investigates JA in 14 parent-child dyads at the ages 0;9, 1;0, 1;3, 1;6, 1;9 and 2;0, and aims to examine how the initiation of JA develops with age, as well as the relationship between JA and later vocabulary size and syntactic level. (
  • Rather, the additional types for school-aged children come from the same part of the vocabulary and share the same-shaped distributions as in adult speech with preschool children and infants. (
  • Thus, we propose a snowball model in which reading and vocabulary lead to more language opportunities and competencies for children," said lead author Helen Raikes, Ph.D., professor of Family and Consumer Sciences at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. (
  • Based on where a couple lives while their first baby is born, they may merely grasp the vocabulary for baby items in one language and find it hard while talking with families in their country of origin. (
  • The Family Literacy Guide helps parents and caregivers strengthen literacy in the lives of their children from birth to grade 12. (
  • A strong case can be made to the growing bilingual communities in Germany and beyond to provide literacy training in both languages within mainstream schools, afternoon classes outside of the curriculum or in community schools. (
  • Their landmark study in the 1990s found that a child born into poverty hears 30 million fewer words by age 3 than a child born to well-off parents, creating a gap in literacy preparation that has implications for a lifetime . (
  • Children may go from a home with limited physical and psychological resources for learning and language to a school with similar constraints, resulting in a double dose of disadvantage," said Susan B. Neuman, professor of childhood and literacy education at NYU Steinhardt and the study's lead author. (
  • Good language skills are essential for early literacy and for accessing the curriculum. (
  • Sixty-six children and adolescents with NS were evaluated using standardized speech, language, and literacy assessments. (
  • Research has demonstrated that helping bilingual children to build literacy in more than one language requires the willingness of parents and teachers to take the maximum advantage of the considerable benefits brought by bilingual books ( Baker, 2011, vol. 79 ). (
  • These understandings have been central to research in the field of emergent literacy.1 Emergent literacy theory claims that children show knowledge and ability in written language through oral delivery forms, such as using structures suited to written discourse in an orally delivered version of a storybook while looking at the book's pictures rather than tracking and using cues from print (Sulzby, 1985a, 1994, 1996a). (
  • Finally, we present examples from case study data drawn from our current research and discuss the implications of these data for SLPs who want to incorporate emergent literacy perspectives and practices into their language remediation with preschool children. (
  • In our collaborative research program and in this report, we bring together perspectives from speech-language pathology and emergent literacy. (
  • Sulzby (1985a) argues that children develop both oral and written language in an interrelated fashion during the preschool years prior to conventional literacy.2 Such a position suggests that investigation of the reciprocal nature of oral/written language forms during the preschool years is warranted. (
  • Some children with autism spectrum disorder are not able to speak or have speech that is not clear or well-understood by others. (
  • But around 1.3 million children in the US alone have trouble picking up language skills, meaning their parents must visit therapists to learn strategies to help them communicate. (
  • It then gives clinically relevant nudges to guide the interaction and improve the child's language skills. (
  • Children's language and brain skills get stronger if they hear many different words. (
  • How their child hears and talks and compare it with typical milestones for communication skills external icon . (
  • Professor James Law of Newcastle University is leading a European research network to look at how intervention can improve children's oral language skills. (
  • Encourage children to continue building oral language skills through discussion and asking questions. (
  • As with other skills and milestones, the age at which kids learn language and start talking can vary. (
  • The SLP (or speech therapist) will check your child's speech and language skills. (
  • The speech therapist will work with your child to improve speech and language skills, and show you what to do at home to help your child. (
  • If a child does not interact with his parents or those in charge of his care, he may not develop language skills as quickly or adeptly as the child who is routinely exposed to speech. (
  • So if it's not a child's brain anatomy predicting their language skills, it suggests their environment might be more influential. (
  • THURSDAY, Aug. 9 (HealthDay News) -- Children who speak more than one language seem to have a learning advantage: Being bilingual can improve children's problem-solving skills and creative thinking, a new study suggests. (

  • Later, when their offspring's were born and were nearly three years of age, the same women were asked about their childs' language and speaking skills. (
  • Although the research doesn't prove that higher fitness directly effects the changes in the electrical activity in the brain, it does offer a mechanism to explain why physical fitness associates closely with improved cognitive performance with a variety of tasks and language skills. (
  • The difference between physically fit children and unfit children is that better language skills are obtained with children that are fit. (
  • Helping your child complete these activities will ensure continued progress and carryover of new skills. (
  • Additionally, parents who read to their children, tell them stories and initiate conversations on interesting subjects also give their kids a head start in being able to acquire the kind of academic language skills they will need throughout their education. (
  • Children leverage their early world knowledge to help them unlock their language skills,' said FSU Assistant Professor of Psychology Arielle Borovsky. (
  • Although it's initial purpose was to create a math land where kids could play with words and sentences, Logo was most often taught via turtle graphics - which provided a set of visual cues to understand the nature of the underlying structures of languages such as the stack and program counters and also helped to develop debugging skills. (
  • In addition to approaches aimed at improving language skills, we also offer augmentative and alternative communication options like speech-generating devices, apps that facilitate communication, manual signs, picture symbol books, and more. (
  • As they get older and their communication skills develop, most children learn how to put their feelings into words. (
  • Funded by the Nuffield Foundation, the study found that over a third of pre-school children were not 'school ready' as they did not have the most basic speech, language and attentional skills expected for their age. (
  • The study, co-led by Angela Thurman and Leonard Abbeduto from the UC Davis MIND Institute and the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences , focused on language as an outcome measure to detect meaningful changes in communication skills of individuals with Down syndrome. (
  • This study presents an analysis of language skills in individuals with Noonan syndrome (NS), an autosomal dominant genetic disorder. (
  • To start with, some children may need one-on-one therapy to manage and develop specific language skills. (
  • As I worked with young children, I tended to focus on language skills, and obviously do the same with my grandchildren. (

  • Interventions leading to improvements in language would have great impacts on the quality of life of individuals with Down syndrome," said Abbeduto, director of the UC Davis MIND Institute, professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences and senior author of the study. (
  • The Child Language Lab is a research lab directed by Dr. Adriana Weisleder in the Department of Communication Sciences and Disorders at Northwestern University. (
  • Language and speech disorders can exist together or by themselves. (
  • Language or speech disorders can occur with other learning disorders that affect reading and writing. (
  • Children with language disorders may feel frustrated that they cannot understand others or make themselves understood, and they may act out, act helpless, or withdraw. (
  • Language or speech disorders can also be present with emotional or behavioral disorders, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) or anxiety . (
  • Auditory processing disorders sometimes happen, which means the child has a hard time decoding speech sounds. (

  • A child will often have both disorders at the same time. (
  • Such disorders are often diagnosed in children between the ages of 3 and 5. (
  • What causes language disorders in a child? (
  • Language disorders can have many possible causes. (
  • Sometimes language disorders have a family history. (
  • It's important to know that learning more than one language does not cause language disorders in children. (
  • Which children are at risk for language disorders? (
  • What are the symptoms of language disorders in a child? (

  • In the study funded in part by the National Institutes of Health, bilingual and monolingual children were asked to press a computer key as they viewed a series of images-either of animals or of depictions of colours. (
  • Our study provides strong evidence that language-indeed both first and second language-is learned, in specific ways, by general-purpose neurocognitive mechanisms that preexist Homo sapiens . (
  • Crucially, if language learning relies on these systems, then our extensive knowledge of the systems from animal and human studies may also apply to this domain, leading to predictions that might be unwarranted in the more circumscribed study of language. (
  • Thus, by demonstrating a role for these systems in language, the findings simultaneously lay a foundation for potentially important advances in the study of this critical domain. (
  • One of the most historically contentious debates in the study of language is whether the mechanisms underlying this domain are dedicated to it or whether they in fact serve more general functions ( 1 ⇓ ⇓ ⇓ - 5 ). (

  • At what age do children typically get pronouns such as 'you' and 'me' mixed up? (
  • By three years old, children typically know how many prepositions? (
  • Conversely, children may import features typically suited to oral language situations into their storybook reenactments or their rereadings of scribbled or drawn compositions (Sulzby, 1986). (
  • Vygotsky's (1978) model of internalization of speech characteristics from social contexts has typically been used in parent-child interaction theory to mean that the child internalizes the speech characteristics of the more knowledgeable and present adult, usually the parent. (
