Influence of Early Intervention on the Social Relationship Between Mother and Infant.
Mills, Pamela Jean
The study was conducted to determine the impact of day care intervention on the relationship between 60 mothers and their infants, 30 infants being at high risk for progressive, developmental retardation. Ss were divided into three groups: the high risk experimental group (HRE), the infants which were in the day care program; the high risk control group (HRC) representing the home-control group; and the general population sample (GPS). Twenty-five minutes of mother-infant interaction were recorded on videotape. Among findings were that as with the HRC group, the HRE had less overall vocalization during the taping session than did the GPS; that GPS mothers were found to vocalize more alone and to have a greater frequency of maternal vocalization; and that HRE mothers were found to interact more without toys than were the HRC mothers.
