Child Care Effects on the Development of Toddlers with Special Needs.
Booth, Cathryn L.; Kelly, Jean F.
Early Childhood Research Quarterly, v17 n2 p171-96 2002
Identified predictors of outcomes for 30-month-olds with developmental delays or biomedical risk factors in child care. Found that after accounting for selection effects, child characteristics at 12 months, and home caregiving quality, no child-care variables predicted development or attachment security. Older entry age predicted greater behavioral organization during testing. Home caregiving quality predicted mental development, behavioral organization, and secure attachment. (Author/KB)
