Whitehurst, Grover J.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v30 n5 p679-89 Sep 1994
Studied effects of an interactive book-reading program with children attending day-care centers whose language development was delayed by 10 months. Children were read to by teachers and parents; read to by parents only; or in a control group. Educationally and statistically significant effects of the reading intervention were found at posttest and follow-up for expressive vocabulary. (TM)
