Results from an Empirical Study: The Impact of Carrying a Child on the Back on the Development of Visual Integration Pathways.
Pretorius, E.; Naude, H.
Early Child Development and Care, v172 n6 p585-94 Dec 2002
Describes an empirical study that examined the impact of being carried on a parent's back on a child's visual integration pathways. Draws on a previous study (Pretorius et al.) postulating that this cultural behavior could have a negative impact as it prevents the child from crawling adequately or enough during the sensorimotor stage.
