Stimulation of Language and Intelligence in Young Children.
International Children's Centre, Paris (France).
The value of language and intellectual stimulation in young children is stressed in a report designed for health administrators and family planning organizations. First year developmental milestones are outlined, and a baby's need for attention as well as the need to provide information on speech and intellectual development to parents are discussed. The importance of play in a child's development is emphasized, and special problems of immigrant children and children of working mothers are surveyed. The need to detect handicaps early so that children have the best chance of developing to their full potential is considered. (PHR)
