The Effects of Otitis Media on the Attention Skills of Day-Care-Attending Toddlers.
Feagans, Lynne V.; And Others
Developmental Psychology, v30 n5 p701-08 Sep 1994
Investigated whether otitis media (OM), middle ear disease, affected toddlers' attention to language. Children were studied during a picture book-reading task at high- or low-quality day-care centers. Children with chronic OM in low-quality care showed the most negative effects on attention during episodes of OM; mothers rated children with chronic OM as more distractible and nonattentive. (TM)
