POSITION PAPER ON PRE-SCHOOL PROGRAMS, A BRIEF SURVEY OF RESEARCH ON THE CHARACTERISTICS OF CHILDREN FROM LOW-INCOME BACKGROUNDS.
JOHN, VERA P.
CHARACTERISTICS OF THE INTELLECTUAL PROCESSES OF THE LOW-INCOME CHILD ARE PRESENTED. THE MAJOR IMPOVERISHMENT OF THESE CHILDREN IS IN THE AREA OF LANGUAGE SKILLS. ANOTHER CHARACTERISTIC IS THEIR POOR PERFORMANCE ON INTELLIGENCE TESTS. IN THE AREA OF PERCEPTIONAL PROCESSES THESE CHILDREN CAN NEITHER DISCRIMINATE SOUNDS WELL NOR PERFORM WELL ON TIMED PERCEPTION TASKS. THE LEAST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN LOW-STATUS AND AVERAGE CHILDREN IS IN REGARD TO QUANTITATIVE SKILLS. RACIAL RECOGNITION BY CULTURALLY DEPRIVED DEPRIVED CHILDREN APPEARS IN THEIR THIRD YEAR. ALSO THERE IS A PREDOMINANCE OF FATHERLESS HOMES REPRESENTED BY THESE CHILDREN. A BIBLIOGRAPHY IS INCLUDED.
