Language and Emotional Milestones on the Road to Readiness. Report No. 18.
Morisset, Colleen E.
This report explores social environmental supports and hazards to emotional, social, and linguistic development in infancy and early childhood. After a discussion of the prevalence and consequences of early language and emotional difficulties, selected studies that examined the effects of social experience on emotional and linguistic growth, including studies that articulated a risk and protective factors approach, are reviewed. Next, the report describes a sample of early intervention programs that bridge the distance between children, parents, educators, and health care and social service providers. The report emphasizes community-based approaches to preventive intervention that provide comprehensive yet intergrated services within a family-centered model. (Contains 251 references.) (Author/MM)
