Conducted a follow-up of B. Hart and T. R. Risley's (see record [rid]1991-07115-001[/rid]) study of family interactional variables associated with language learning and parenting practices associated with IQ and child productive vocabulary at 7–36 mo of age. In the current study, 29 children involved in the earlier study were repeatedly assessed between 5 and 10 yrs of age. Results indicate that SES-related differences in child language prior to school were predictive of subsequent verbal ability, receptive and spoken language, and academic achievement. However, none of the predictor variables was related to direct measures of elementary schooling. (PsycINFO Database Record (c) 2016 APA, all rights reserved)
