In de tweetalige ontwikkeling van kinderen met een niet-Nederlandse achtergrond is een belangrijke rol weggelegd voor contextuele factoren; niet alleen het gezin maar ook de buurt en de school maken onderdeel uit van de context waarbinnen tweetalige kinderen vaardigheden in zowel de thuistaal als de meerderheidstaal ontwikkelen. De factoren die hierbij een rol spelen worden samengevat in het Tweetaligheid-in-Context (TIC) model. Dit model is ontwikkeld op basis van resultaten uit eerder onderzoe...

Attachment is considered a universal human need and, although relevant studies are scarce, it appears that the main tenets of attachment theory (i.e., children becoming attached to one or more particular caregivers, the normativity of secure attachment patterns, and the positive effects of parental sensitivity) are also applicable to non-Western cultural groups, including ethnic minorities. Parental sensitivity and secure attachment appear to occur at a lower rate in ethnic minority than in ethn...

Sixteen meta-analyses were conducted to examine relations of typically developing bilingual immigrant-background children’s oral language proficiency in their first and second language with the school outcomes of early literacy (k = 41), reading (k = 61), spelling (k = 9), mathematics (k = 9), and academic achievement (k = 9). Moderate to strong within-language relations were found for all school outcomes (.22 < r < .43), and cross-language relations for early literacy and reading (.12 < r < .22...

The aim of this study was to test the relation between sensitivity beliefs and sensitive behaviors in Dutch ethnic majority and Turkish ethnic minority mothers. Sixty mothers, 30 in the Dutch and 30 in the Turkish group, with a child between the ages of 2 and 5 years participated. Sensitivity belief scores were derived by correlating the Maternal Behaviour Q-Sort (Pederson, Moran, & Bento, 1999), the expertderived profile of the highly sensitive mother, with mothers' beliefs about the ideal moth...

The linguistic interdependence hypothesis states that the development of skills in a second language (L2) partly depends on the skill level in the first language (L1). It has been suggested that the theory lacked attention for differential interdependence. In this study we test what we call the hypothesis of context-dependent linguistic interdependence. In order to do so, we examined child language use and socioeconomic status as two moderators in the relation between L1 vocabulary and L2 vocabu...

Interventions for parents of young children often focus on enhancing parental sensitivity. A cognitive match on treatment goals has been shown to relate to the quality of the relationship (or alliance) between a therapist and the person receiving intervention, which in turn predicts the effectiveness of interventions. However, in multicultural societies therapists and patients do not always share the same ethnic background, which could influence their match on treatment goals. The aim of this st...

When bilingual children enter formal reading education, host language proficiency becomes increasingly important. This study investigated the relation between socioeconomic status (SES), maternal language use, reading input, and vocabulary in a sample of 111 six-year-old children of firstand second-generation Turkish immigrant parents in the Netherlands. Mothers reported on their language use with the child, frequency of reading by both parents, and availability of children’s books in the ethnic...

Using a randomized control trial design we tested the effectiveness of a culturally sensitive adaptation of the Video-feedback Intervention to promote Positive Parenting and Sensitive Discipline (VIPP-SD) in a sample of 76 Turkish minority families in the Netherlands. The VIPP-SD was adapted based on a pilot with feedback of the target mothers, resulting in the VIPP-TM (VIPP-Turkish Minorities). The sample included families with 20–47-month-old children with high levels of externalizing problems...

Abstract Longitudinal research exploring the development of cognitive flexibility is lacking. In this study we investigated the speed-accuracy pattern in cognitive flexibility performance in 87 5–6-year-olds across the transition to formal education. Overall, longitudinal change was observed in accuracy but not in speed of responding. Children with low accuracy scores in kindergarten were faster than those with high accuracy scores, but the low-accuracy group showed a significant performance gai...
