The Use of Language: A Rationale for Respectful and Reciprocal Caregiving with Infants.
Kovach, Beverly A.; DaRoss, Denise A.
Montessori Life, v7 n3 p16-17 Sum 1995
Examines the role of language in providing individual quality care to infants in a group situation. Suggests that by using language, the natural medium of choice, the adult includes the infant in his caregiving, and this inclusion helps to set up the beginning of a network of communication that lays the foundation for mutual understanding between caregiver and infant.
