New study shows toddlers are great at getting the conversation started
Conversation is an important part of what makes us human. Previous research has shown that children begin to develop this skill at a young age. While many assume that mothers instigate communication with their children, new research suggests that children are the ones who get the conversation started. 'I was surprised that kids were drivers of conversation,' said Mark VanDam, who will present his team's research findings at the 177th ASA Meeting, May 13-17, 2019. (2019-05-14)

Want to expand your toddler's vocabulary? Find another child
Children glean all kinds of information from the people around them. In particular, children mimic and learn speech patterns from their family. Previous work has shown that infants attend selectively to their mother's voice over another female's voice. But new research suggests that children learn new words best from other children. Yuanyuan Wang will present research findings from a collaborative work with Amanda Seidl from Purdue University at the 177th ASA Meeting, May 13-17, 2019. (2019-05-13)

Results published in the Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry. (2018-09-26)

Toddlers prefer winners -- but avoid those who win by force
Toddlers aged just 1 1/2 years prefer individuals whom other people yield to. It appears to be deeply rooted in human nature to seek out those with the highest social status. This motive might have evolved because being close to high-ranking individuals has given people access to resources, territory and mates. (2018-09-07)

Parents' behavior during playtime may affect toddler's weight later on
Researchers have found that toddlers who had poor self-regulation skills -- the ability to control their behaviors and emotions -- went on to have lower BMIs as preschoolers if their mothers engaged with them during playtime and then helped direct them during clean up. (2018-08-23)

Research finds naps plus sleep may enhance emotional memory in early childhood
For children in this study, the authors write that 'individually, the nap and overnight sleep bouts were not sufficient to induce changes in memory. A significant benefit of napping was observed only when changes across the entire 24-hour period were considered. This supports an interplay between the nap and subsequent overnight sleep in the consolidation of memories in young children.' (2018-08-22)

Functional MRI reveals memory in sleeping toddlers
Our ability to remember past events develops rapidly in the first couple of years of life, but it's not clear exactly how this happens. Researchers at the UC Davis Center for Mind and Brain have now been able to carry out functional MRI brain scans of sleeping toddlers, and show for the first time how specific brain regions are activated during memory recall in two-year-olds. (2018-06-04)

Young toddlers may learn more from interactive than noninteractive media
Preschoolers can learn from educational television, but younger toddlers may learn more from interactive digital media (such as video chats and touchscreen mobile apps) than from TV and videos alone, which don't require them to interact. That's the conclusion of a new article in the journal Child Development Perspectives that also notes that not all children learn to the same degree from these media. (2018-05-22)

Lack of vegetable choices in infant and toddler food is widespread

Trial of omega fatty acid supplementation in toddlers born preterm shows promising results
Thirty-one toddlers who were born prematurely participated. For three months, half took a daily dietary supplement that contained a special combination of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, and half took a placebo. The group that took the daily omega fatty acid supplement exhibited a greater reduction in ASD symptoms than those who took the placebo, according to ratings provided by the children's parents. (2018-03-01)

'Social brain' networks are altered at a young age in autism
As infants develop, they respond to social cues such as voices, faces and gestures. Their brain develops a network of regions that specialise in translating these cues, the 'social brain'. A common observation in infants later diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorders is reduced sensitivity towards these social cues. A team of researchers from the University of Geneva brings evidence of how this phenomenon hinders the normal development of the social brain at early developmental stages. (2018-02-27)

Too much TV at age 2 makes for less healthy adolescents

Misleading labeling on formulas and milks marketed as 'toddler drinks' may confuse parents about their healthfulness or necessity, finds a new study by researchers at the NYU College of Global Public Health and the Rudd Center for Food Policy & Obesity at the University of Connecticut. (2018-02-05)

Autism might be better detected using new two-minute questionnaire
Researchers at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School have developed a two-minute questionnaire for parents that could help pediatricians and other primary care providers detect autism in toddlers, at a time when intervention might be crucial. The Psychological Development Questionnaire (PDQ-1) had an 88 percent likelihood of correctly identifying which of the youngster that screened positive because of the questionnaire had autism spectrum disorder (ASD). (2018-02-05)

A mom's support helps a child learn to handle negative emotions, but what if mom is distressed?
When children become upset, showing negative emotions or behaviors, some parents become distressed, while others are able to talk their child through the difficult situation. Studies have shown that a mothers' reaction -- positive or negative -- to her child's negative emotions can predict whether her child develops the ability to effectively regulate his emotions and behavior. A new University of Illinois study explores potential predictors of mothers' supportive or non-supportive behavior during emotional challenges. (2017-11-17)

Incidence of measles in the United States
From 2001 to 2015, the overall annual incidence of measles in the United States remained extremely low (less than 1 case/million population) compared with incidence worldwide (40 cases/million population); relative increases in measles rates were observed over the period, and the findings suggest that failure to vaccinate may be the main driver of measles transmission, according to a study published by JAMA. (2017-10-03)
