Abstract

In contrast to the large array of instruments available for the measurement of individual differences in children, there have been almost no techniques available to permit the precise measurement of the child's home learning environment. The present study involved the administration of a home environment inventory to a sample of 77 mothers and infants. Correlations between home inventory data and measures of infant development over a period of 30 mth were higher than those typically reported relating infant tests or level of parental education to childhood IQ.
