StudiesMoreExcerpt from University of Iowa Studies, Vol. 13: Studies in Child WelfareIn this study Dr. Crissey presents a careful analysis of certain factors related to changes in the rate of mental growth among children in state institutions. Studies conducted in the Station by Wellman and Skeels had already shown that school and home conditions definitely affected this rate, especially at the preschool levels.While the relationships involved are complex, one or two general trends appear to be reliable and of theoretical and practical significance. Changes in brightness tend to be related to the general IQ level of the group: the relatively dull move upward and the relatively bright show losses. These changes appear when children are transferred from one institutional environment to another. In general, there is presented a picture of accumulative IQ loss associated with long residence in an institution.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
