Infant Stimulation: A Review for Educators and Primary Care Personnel.
International Children's Centre, Paris (France).
The value of infant stimulation is stressed in a report on the characteristics of infant development. The following five areas of development are discussed: sensorimotor, language, mental, emotional, and social. Stages of development during the first year in each of the areas are surveyed, and traditions in different countries are highlighted to illustrate techniques of stimulation. The role of the mother in providing the needed stimulation is considered and the authors conclude that the role of the mother is so important that it would be desirable to give women who work 6 months to a year maternity leave to provide this important function.
