Infants and toddlers learn early language and literacy skills in the context of their relationships with the adults around them as if they are putting together a puzzle. We knew this would be difficult for people, especially in front of others. The four interventional approaches include persuasive information, vicarious experience, awareness of physiological reactions, and enactive attainment.
Incidents of contact abuse were obtained from women 18 to 36 years old in 1994 and compared to women with those demographic characteristics from a comparable 1984 dataset. Infants and toddlers learn early language and literacy skills in the context of their relationships with the adults around them, as if they are putting together a puzzle.
