Putnick, Yvonne Bohr, Marette Abdelmaseh, Carol Yookyung Lee, Gianluca EspositoAbstractSupporting language skills in the early years is important because children who begin school with stronger language skills continue to perform well later in their language as well as academic and socioemotional growth. This three-wave longitudinal study of 50 mother-infant dyads reveals that maternal sensitivity and maternal language at 5 months each uniquely predicts child language at 49 months, controlling for a...

Publication date: 2nd Quarter 2020Source: Early Childhood Research Quarterly, Volume 51Author(s): Kathryn M. Bigelow, Dale Walker, Fan Jia, Dwight Irvin, Amy TurcotteAbstractThe amount and quality of language-related interactions young children experience is related to their later development. The field has developed strategies to address this need, but in practice, parents rarely use them consistently or with high levels of fidelity. Given the need to modify such interventions so that they are used consistently and with fidelity, the purpose of this study was to evaluate whether text messaging used as an enhancement to th...

The early writing skills of children identified as at-risk for literacy difficulties
In this study, we comprehensively assessed the early writing skills of 3- to 5.5-year old children (n = 128) to characterize the writing of young children identified as at-risk for later literacy difficulties and to compare the early writing skills of these children to their non-at risk peers. Results indicated that children who are considered at-risk for later literacy difficulties lag behind their peers in a range of early writing skills, including name writing, letter writing, invented spelling, and story composition in preschool. Findings also suggest that early literacy screeners may identify children experiencing...

Children’s knowledge of single- and multiple-letter grapheme-phoneme correspondences: An exploratory study
In this study, we examined Australian children’s knowledge of single- and multiple-letter grapheme-phoneme correspondences (GPCs), and the influence of five different factors – GPC complexity, phoneme status, the child’s name, GPC entropy, and GPC frequency – on GPC knowledge. Data from 337 Australian children enrolled in Kindergarten to Grade 3 were included in the study and analyses were performed using mixed effects models. Results indicate that GPC knowledge varied across children and GPCs, children were almost twice as likely to accurately pronounce single-letter graphemes compared to multiple-...

Measures of early social communication and vocabulary production to predict language outcomes at two and three years in late-talking toddlers
ConclusionsMeasures of social communication between 18–21 months added important information to predicting language outcomes at 2 and 3 years, above and beyond parent-reported expressive vocabulary production measured at 24 months, with small effect sizes overall. Implications for identifying younger children who are at risk for continued language delay and recommendations for referral to early intervention programs are discussed.

Influence of quality credentialing programs on teacher characteristics in center-based early care and education settings
This study combines a randomized resume audit study with administrative data on provider participation in QRIS (N = 5607) and NAEYC (N = 10,553) to examine whether these quality credentialing programs influence provider behavior during the teacher hiring process. While NAEYC-accredited providers are strongly attracted to job applicants with ECE work experience, education, and other professional credentials, QRIS participants are not.
