Joyce, Hannah; Aguado-Orea, Javier – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
The Assessment of Language in Adults using Self-reported Skills (ALASS) is an online tool aimed at providing a rapid indication of language-related skills at two levels: basic performance and social use. In Study 1, we have developed and validated a new tool with two objective measures: a lexical decision test and a grammaticality judgement test,…

Weiss, Maren; Schmucker, Martin; Lösel, Friedrich – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
Most research on developmental prevention programs stems from Anglo-American countries. However, in German-speaking European countries, there is also a broad range of family-oriented programs to promote child development and prevent behavioral problems. This article presents a meta-analysis of n = 79 studies on family-based prevention that had a…

Nicoladis, Elena; Gourlay, Haylee – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
Adults, preschool children, and infants gesture more with their right hand than with their left hand. Since gestures and speech are related in production, it is possible that this right-hand preference reflects left-hemisphere lateralization for gestures and speech. The primary purpose of the present study was to test if children between the ages…

Eyuboglu, Murat; Eyuboglu, Damla; Karzan, Nazli Ece; Yaylaci, Ferhat; Karadag, Engin; Arslantas, Didem – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2022
This study examined the new parent-report assessment's reliability and validity, the Eyuboglu Sensory Reactivity Scale (ESRS), in children with ASD. The ESRS was designed to assess the frequency of sensory behaviors in children with ASD. A total of 167 (age 2-18, M?=?6.4±4.1 years, 79.6 % male) children and their families were included. Parents…

Gresham, Bria; Orihuela, Catheryn A.; Mrug, Sylvie – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
Community violence exposure is associated with externalizing problems in adolescents, yet little research has examined the moderating role of coping in these relationships. Eighty-four low-income, urban adolescents (M[subscript age] = 13.36, 50% male, 95% African American) participated in two waves of a longitudinal study a year and a half apart.…

Espinoza, Carlos N.; Goering, Marlon; Mrug, Sylvie – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
African American youth are more likely to experience racial discrimination, which contributes to greater sensitivity to disrespect and aggressive behavior. However, little is known about possible reciprocal relationships among discrimination, disrespect sensitivity, and aggression. This study investigated these reciprocal relationships and whether…

Hellmer, Kahl; Stenberg, Gunilla; Fawcett, Christine – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
Children, just like adults, conform to peer testimony when making ostensibly easy decisions. Yet, some are more prone to conform than others and little is known about which factors contribute to this variability. In the current study, we aimed to investigate the reasons for individual differences in conformity by examining potential correlates of…

Lehmann, Juliane; Lechner, Viola; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
With implemented school closures, the global crisis of COVID-19 has caused drastic changes in the dynamics and routines of children and their families. The rapid transition to homeschooling and social distancing measures have been particularly challenging for schoolchildren and their parents. In the adverse situation of COVID-19, children are more…

Goagoses, Naska; Koglin, Ute – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
The aim of the current study was to investigate whether the association between parental attachment and externalizing behavior is parallelly mediated by dysfunctional emotion regulation and callous-unemotional traits. The community sample included 296 adolescents (M[subscript age]?=?14.90, SD[subscript age]?=?1.31), who completed the Inventory of…

Rosenbach, Charlotte; Renneberg, Babette; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
Rejection Sensitivity (RS) is defined as the disposition to anxiously expect, readily perceive, and overreact to social rejection cues. Aim of the two studies presented in this paper was to develop and administer an instrument to assess RS in a German sample of healthy (pre)adolescents as well as in a clinical sample. The English Children's…

Kissgen, Ruediger; Franke, Sebastian; Jorjadze, Nino; Roth, Bernhard; Kribs, Angela – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
This study examines the infant-father attachment in infants born preterm (<?1500?g at birth and/or?<?37 weeks gestation) in comparison to full-term infants. The infant-father attachment was assessed using the Strange Situation Procedure at a (corrected) age of 15 months. We found at least half of preterm and full-term infants (50.0% and…

Ioannidou, Louiza; Zafiropoulou, Maria – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
Separate lines of research have linked negative parenting practices, victimization, and negative affectivity--separately--with internalizing symptoms in children. However, no previous studies have connected these lines of research to examine internalizing pathology in children. The current study tested complex moderated-mediation models to…

Longobardi, C.; Fabris, M. A.; Prino, L. E.; Settanni, M. – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2021
In Europe, 82% of minors use a social network (SN). Although SNs offer opportunities for social interaction, they also involve some risks, such as online sexual victimization (OSV). As many as 39% of teenagers are estimated to be at risk of OSV. The literature suggests that risky online behaviors, such as sexting, indiscriminate expansion of SNs,…

Fiedler, Nora; Leuschner, Vincenz; Sommer, Friederike; Cornell, Dewey; Scheithauer, Herbert – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2020
This research paper presents an operationalization procedure for measuring fidelity of implementation (FOI) of a school-based crisis prevention program. The implementation literature recommends that program developers specify core components of an intervention that are directly related to a program's theory of change and need to be implemented…

Fallahtafti, Sadeq; Ghanbaripirkashani, Nikzad; Alizadeh, Seyed Shahram; Rovoshi, Ramin Safiyari – International Journal of Developmental Science, 2020
Smartphone addiction among adolescents has become a major concern. The present study aims to investigate the psychometric properties of the Persian Smartphone Addiction Scale - Short Version (SAS-SV). A sample of 398 adolescents (52% girls and 48% boys) completed the SAS-SV, the Kutcher Adolescent Depression Scale (KADS), and the Young Internet…
