Di Rosa, Gabriella; Pironti, Erica; Cucinotta, Francesca; Alibrandi, Angela; Gagliano, Antonella – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Temporal differences of neurodevelopmental milestones' achievement are commonly taken into account in preterm infant assessment during the first year of life, especially when minor or none neurological signs arise from clinical examination. The influence of gender on neurodevelopment in preterm infants was examined by a milestones-based…

Bemis, Rhyannon H.; Leichtman, Michelle D. – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Accurately remembering how and when one's own learning occurs is an important metacognitive skill that matures during the early school years. In two studies, the impact of a delay on this ability was examined. In Study 1, 30 children in two age groups (4-year-olds and 5-year-olds) participated in two-staged learning events and were interviewed…

Acar, Ibrahim H.; Frohn, Scott; Prokasky, Amanda; Molfese, Victoria J.; Bates, John E. – Infant and Child Development, 2019
The study examines the concurrent and longitudinal associations between ratings-based measures (parents, secondary caregivers, and observers) and performance-based measures of focused attention in toddlers aged 30 (n = 147), 36 (n = 127), and 42 months (n = 107). Parents and secondary caregivers rated focused attention behaviours using the…

Hermes, Jonas; Rakoczy, Hannes; Behne, Tanya – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Much recent research has shown that children from age 4 onwards reveal a robust preference for reliable over unreliable informants when choosing whom to trust and learn from. Findings concerning selective model choice in children younger than 4 years have mostly been mixed. The present study developed a new touchscreen-based paradigm with reduced…

Burns-Nader, Sherwood; Scofield, Jason; Jones, Caroline – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Children often substitute one object for another during play. They may substitute a stick for a sword or a box for a car, often favouring substitutes that are shaped like the needed object. The current study looked at the roles of shape and specificity, the degree to which a possible substitute resembles something else, in children's object…

Shuwairi, Sarah Margaret – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Previous research yielded conflicting reports as to whether infants grasped at both depicted and real objects, which led to questions about the nature of their conceptual understanding of objects represented in pictures. This study set out to further clarify whether infants actually grasp at pictured objects compared to real objects and other flat…

Seo, SoJung; Lee, Young-Eun – Infant and Child Development, 2019
This study examined the associations between maternal scaffolding and toddlers' active joint engagement during play and whether toddlers' temperamental activity moderates those associations. Korean mother-toddler dyads (N = 106) participated in semistructured free play. Maternal scaffolding, toddlers' joint engagement, and physical activity level…

Yang, Xiujie; Peng, Peng; Meng, Xiangzhi – Infant and Child Development, 2019
The purpose of this study was to investigate the contributions of general cognitive skills (working memory, inhibition, and reasoning) and metalinguistic awareness to young children's character reading. One hundred eighty-nine Chinese children, aged from 60 to 78 months, were administered with measures of character recognition, language,…

Nguyen, Simone P.; Girgis, Helana; Knopp, Jamie – Infant and Child Development, 2019
The present studies (N = 159) investigated children's and adults' preferences for label and property conjunctions for cross-classifiable toys. In Study 1, 4-year-olds, 5-year-olds, and adults participated in a labelling and property attribution task involving experimental toys that belong to two categories and control toys that belong to only one…

Liu, Yingyi; Zhang, Xiao; Song, Zhanmei; Yang, Wen – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Based on a sample of 109 Hong Kong nursery children aged approximately 3 years and their parents, this study investigated how Chinese parents contributed to their very young children's mathematics achievement and disentangled mothers' and fathers' roles. Fathers and mothers were asked to independently report the frequencies of their own engagement…

Caporaso, Jessica S.; Boseovski, Janet J.; Marcovitch, Stuart – Infant and Child Development, 2019
The present study explored the role of three components of executive function (EF)--response inhibition, working memory, and cognitive flexibility--in preschool children's social competence. Each component was expected to contribute uniquely to children's abilities to resolve peer conflict in a competent manner, namely, the inhibition of…

Murakami, Taro; Hashiya, Kazuhide – Infant and Child Development, 2019
In verbal communication, a receiver often needs to resolve referential ambiguity. This study set two experimental conditions to separate the possibility of local correspondence based on the persisting strategy of reference assignment from that of more flexible reference skills. A total of 139 three-year-old and five-year-old children engaged in…

Einziger, Tzlil; Zilberman-Hayun, Yael; Atzaba-Poria, Naama; Auerbach, Judith G.; Berger, Andrea – Infant and Child Development, 2019
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is highly heritable; however, an adequate home environment may moderate its development. This study examined the early home environment of 70 male adolescents (M age = 13.5 years, SD = 0.95) participating in a prospective high-risk longitudinal study. Results demonstrated that adolescents who were…

Davidson, Denise; Rainey, Vanessa R.; Vanegas, Sandra B.; Hilvert, Elizabeth – Infant and Child Development, 2018
Robust evidence exists for the shape bias, or children's tendency to extend novel names and categorize objects more readily on the basis of shape than on other object features. However, issues remain about the conditions that affect the shape bias and its importance as a linguistic device. In this research, we examined how type of instruction…

Ho, Ariel; Lee, Joanne; Wood, Eileen; Kassies, Samantha; Heinbuck, Carissa – Infant and Child Development, 2018
Despite the increase in the use of interactive technological devices, little is known about the impact that play context has on the production of spatial language by parents. To investigate whether there is differential parental spatial input afforded by play contexts with their preschoolers, 34 children (20 girls, 14 boys) and their primary…
