This article addresses the critical role of caregiver interaction styles in the language development and treatment of infants/children with developmental disabilities. An approach to measuring and guiding adult interactive styles is proposed and related to research in parent-child development and intervention. The approach examines five interactive styles: balance, match, responsiveness, nondirectiveness, and emotional attachment. (Author/DB)
