Socioeconomic status, parenting, and child development by Marc H Bornstein( )

20 editions published between 2002 and 2014 in English and held by 1,629 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Socioeconomic Status, Parenting, and Child Development presents cutting-edge thinking and research on linkages among socioeconomic status, parenting, and child development. The contributors represent an array of different disciplines, and approach the issues from a variety of perspectives. Accordingly, their ""take"" on how SES matters in the lives of children varies. This volume is divided into two parts. Part I concerns the constructs and measurement of SES and Part II discusses the functions and effects of SES. Each part presents four substantive chapters on the topic followed by an interp

Parental characteristics, family ecology, and the caregiving environment of adolescents with disabilities by Robert H Bradley( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 88 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined relationships between the caregiving environment, severity of disability, and several aspects of family ecology for 102 adolescents with disabilities. Family ecology variables included poverty status, parental intelligence, social support, and marital quality. The disability categories were mental retardation; orthopedic impairment; sensory impairment; and impairments of speech, language, or learning. The level of stimulation and structure in the home environment was related to parental intelligence, marital quality, and the severity of sensory impairment. Adolescents from homes where parents had higher IQs and reported better marital quality received more stimulation and structure. Less stimulation and structure were received by adolescents with more severe sensory impairments and mental retardation. An interaction was also observed between social support and poverty status, with social support acting as a buffer against poverty and adequate family finances acting as a buffer against lack of social support. Adolescents with disabilities who came from families low in both social support and economic resources received less stimulation and support than expected. The only significant effect observed for the nurturance/support aspects of the caregiving environment was race, with African-American adolescents receiving higher scores on acceptance and responsivity compared to Caucasians.

Early Home Environment and Changes in Mental Test Performance in Children from 6 to 36 Months by Robert H Bradley( Book )

2 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The present investigation examined the ability of the Inventory of Home Stimulation (stim) to predict changes in relative mental test performance of children between 6 months old and 36 months of age. The six stim subscales were used in discriminant analysis to classify infants into three groups (gainers, stable, losers) in terms of their change in relative mental test performance between 6 and 36 months. Significant discrimination was possible using the six subscales. The data also indicate that iq gains for infants, like iq gains for older children, appear related to parents' acceleration and encouragement of intellectual development. (Author)
Assessing the Developmental Environment of Young Children by Robert H Bradley( Book )

1 edition published in 1976 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The development of environmental process measures marks a significant step forward in the assessment of environment quality. As Bloom (1964) predicted, these measures have made it possible to more clearly delineate the relationship between environment and development. Although factorial structure of many process instruments is open to question, there is evidence of substantial empirical validity for most. Greater attention now needs to be paid to establishing the validity of process instruments for specific purposes such as screening, diagnosis, and program evaluation. Environmental process measures have been used with a variety of age and cultural groups. Most of the studies done outside the United States were not reported in this paper. Adaptations of instruments for use with other groups should be made with caution with emphasis given to establishing the appropriateness of each item for use with a particular age group in a particular social context. While much additional work needs to be done in developing good environmental process measures, it is concluded that these measures can be usefully employed for a variety of research and applied purposes. Particular attention should be given to designing short, easy to administer instruments for use in educational and clinical settings. Significant improvements in research instruments may be more dependent on the development of more adequate theories about the relationship between environment and development. In both cases, the use of environmental measures is likely to make a substantial contribution to the adequacy of the information obtained. (Author/RC)

General and Specific Aspects of the Physical Environment Relationships with Development in Handicapped Children Ages 1 to 10 by Robert H Bradley( Book )

2 editions published in 1987 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The relationship between physical environment and child development was examined in five groups of moderately to severely handicapped children (hearing impaired, vision impaired, orthopedically impaired, speech impaired, mentally retarded). The 282 participating children comprised 89 infants (ages 0-3), 108 preschoolers (ages 3-6), and 85 elementary school children (ages 6-10). Each child's family was visited twice (18 months apart) at home and assessed using sociodemographic indices, the HOME Inventory, a parental coping scale, a social support inventory, the Family Inventory of Life Events, the Scales of Independent Behavior, and either the Bayley Scales of Infant Development or the Stanford-Binet Intelligence test. Results indicated that there was a high degree of specificity between the type of handicap and age and the development of handicapped children. Availability of materials was only slightly related to behavioral development in infants but more significant in overall development of preschool and elementary school age children. Significant correlations were most frequent for orthopedically and speech impaired children's motor and social development, while no significant correlations appeared for the mentally retarded in any developmental area. Findings also indicated that general surroundings in which a child lives were essentially unrelated to behavioral development for handicapped children ages 0-10. (VW)
Early Home Experience, Classroom Social Competence and Academic Achievement by Lisa A Tedesco( Book )

1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As part of a larger, on-going study conducted through the Center for Child Development and Education at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, this paper explores the influence of the home environment on children's psychological functioning in school and on their academic achievement. Data were obtained on home experience, classroom social competence and achievement measurements for 96 elementary school children in grades one through six. Measures of academic achievement were obtained from the standardized Science Research Associates test series for reading, language and mathematics. The 23 item Classroom Social Competence Scale (cscs), reflecting the item content of the Kohn and Rosman (1972) Social Competence Scale was designed for this study to assess the children's classroom social competence, along the behavioral dimensions of withdrawal (non-participation and aggression), disruption, and task orientation. The Home Observation for Measurement of the Environment (home), designed by Caldwell and Bradley (in press), was used to measure the quality of stimulation, and the social, emotional and cognitive support available for the child's development. Multivariate multiple procedures were used to test the existence of associations between the three variables. Results revealed significant relationships across the three sets of variables. Patterns of these relationships suggest that early experience prepares the child to meet not only intellectual performance requirements but also social performance requirements. (Author/MP)
Issues and Procedures in Testing Young Children. Tm Report No. 37 by Robert H Bradley( Book )

1 edition published in 1974 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Because of the developmental characteristics of young children, the potential user of tests for educational evaluation needs to be keenly alert to the kinds of decisions which can be made on the basis of testing and to the limitations of testing when young children serve as subjects. The choice of a test to be used will depend on the type of decision to be made. Several decision types are discussed: program planning and evaluation, screening, and administrative decisions. After considering the type of decision to be made as a factor in test selection, several test characteristics should be considered: practical criteria, including relevance, scope, timeliness, importance, efficiency, and credibility; validity--content, discriminant, criterion, content, and edumetric; test reliability; and test bias. Cognitive, affective, and psychomotor domains are discussed in relation to determining what kinds of test characteristics are important in assessing for a particular educational decision. Some strategies which offer effective ways to obtain more ecologically valid assessment data are presented along with comments on other testing methods, human rights, and achievement tests. (Rc)
Home Environment and Social Competence A Look at Alternative Models of Environmental Action by Robert H Bradley( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Infant Health and Development Program (IHDP) is an intervention designed to facilitate social development in low birthweight (LBW) children. This report does not deal with the full complexity of operations involving program components as they interact to shape social competence. Rather, the report represents a first or "setting" stage, a look at the ecology of social development in LBW children independent of intervention. The study's purpose was threefold: (1) to look at simple relationships between various aspects of home environment and components of social competence; (2) to study primacy and recency effects with respect to social competence at the age of 3 years; and (3) to identify interactions among home environment components that relate to social competence. Participants in the study were 549 children who had participated in the IHDP. The measures used were the HOME Inventory, Achenbach Child Behavior Checklist, Richman-Graham Behavior Checklist, Adaptive Social Behavior Inventory, and measures of mother-child interactions. As expected, the home environments of children with low birth weight were related to the social competence of the children. Significant relations were obtained from parental ratings of children's social problems and adaptive behavior and from direct observations of children's social behavior in problem-solving situations. Results suggest that intervention may have an effect when a child has a reasonably responsive environment in the first year of life. Five tables show the statistical correlations.
