Pineda-Alhucema, Wilmar; Jiménez-Figueroa, Giomar – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Social cognition is a very important group of neurocognitive processes involved especially in social functioning; currently, the amount of research on this topic is increasing and suggests some considerations about its assessment, particularly in the child population. This article presents some of these considerations focussed on the theoretical…

Zhou, Xinlin; Zeng, Jieying – Infant and Child Development, 2022
There has been a long-standing debate on situational and symbolic mathematics, which is associated with how to design and execute mathematics education for all students. Brain studies can give some clues for how to deal with the debate. There are situational, verbalized, and visuospatial brain networks and the connectivity among the networks,…

He, Angela Xiaoxue – Infant and Child Development, 2022
In acquiring a native language, the input children receive, to an unneglectable extent, shapes the rate of acquisition and the ultimate achievement. This in turn has cascading effects on many aspects of later development, including but not limited to language. Providing optimal input for early language development, therefore, is of major interest…

Camacho, Tissyana C.; Echelbarger, Margaret – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Many social scientists are working to course correct the historical mistakes, abuses, and exclusionary practices of the field. To diversify who participates in developmental science, both as participants and as researchers, we argue that more attention must be paid to how we teach the science of developmental science (i.e., research methods). We…

Lecce, Serena; Devine, Rory T. – Infant and Child Development, 2022
The recent expansion of research on children's understanding of others' minds (or 'theory of mind', ToM) into middle childhood provides fresh opportunities to consider its origins and consequences. In this paper, we propose that, in addition to supporting children's social interactions, individual differences in ToM benefit academic achievement,…

Christie, Stella – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Play is an essential component of childhood, but parents and educators sometimes view it as an optional add-on, which gets in the way of learning. This view persists in spite of evidence that play is helpful and sometimes critical to learning in multiple domains, perhaps because precise mechanisms whereby play occasions learning are not well…

Miller-Cotto, Dana; Smith, Leann V.; Wang, Aubrey H.; Ribner, Andrew D. – Infant and Child Development, 2022
How might we shift language about executive functions and self-regulation for minoritized children and families to be more culturally sensitive? The objective of this essay is to offer a culturally responsive perspective on executive functions for minoritized children and their families, while also identifying myths and counterarguments to advance…

Prather, Richard William – Infant and Child Development, 2022
How do researchers of cognitive development work to make sure that our field evolves so that our contribution to humanity is emancipatory? We can take inspiration from researchers near and far. Inspiration may be found in other areas of psychological research (social, cultural, etc.) and other social sciences (public health, sociology, etc.).…

Song, Yue; Broekhuizen, Martine; Dubas, Judith Semon – Infant and Child Development, 2022
This 3-wave longitudinal study investigated the developmental trajectories of instrumental helping, sharing and empathic helping across toddlerhood, and how socialisation processes (i.e., parents' and teachers' practices) contribute to these developments. Participants were 50 18-months-olds and 62 24-months-olds, their parents, and daycare…

Okumura, Yuko; Kobayashi, Tessei – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Literacy exposure checklists that assess parental picture book knowledge (Parental Title Checklist [PTC] and Parental Author Checklist [PAC]) have been developed as proxy measures for literacy environments. Although previous research suggests that parental picture book knowledge is a strong predictor of language skills for preschoolers older than…

Leech, Kathryn A.; Herbert, Kaitlin; Yang, Qianru Tiffany; Rowe, Meredith L. – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Children's mathematical knowledge at school entry varies considerably and predicts long-term achievement outcomes. Differences in children's exposure to math and number talk at home may help to explain variations in school-entry math ability. However, nearly all research on exposure to math and number talk has been conducted with parents and…

Pinto, Giuliana; Incognito, Oriana – Infant and Child Development, 2022
Drawing and writing are two major representational systems with many common aspects. Each also has its own system of rules, characterized by different degrees of visual realism and conventionality. The relationship between them at their emergence and the contribution of perceptual and motor skills to their development have been under-investigated,…

Araujo, Waleska Regina Machado; Malta, Maíra Barreto; Faggiani, Lucas Damasio; Cardoso, Marly Augusto; Matijasevich, Alicia – Infant and Child Development, 2022
We estimated risk factors associated with suspected neuropsychomotor developmental delay at age 2 years, in a birth cohort in the Brazilian Amazon. The Maternal and Child Health and Nutrition in Acre (MINA-Brasil) study is a population-based birth cohort involving children born between July 2015 and June 2016 in the municipality of Cruzeiro do…

Flykt, Marjo Susanna; Lindblom, Jallu; Belt, Ritva; Punamäki, Raija-Leena – Infant and Child Development, 2021
This prospective longitudinal study examined how maternal prenatal substance use disorder (SUD) and early mother-infant interaction quality are associated with child social cognition (emotion recognition and mentalization) at school age. A sample of 52 poly-substance-using mothers receiving early interventions and 50 non-users, along with their…
