A Research Review: Influence of Socio-Economic and Home Environment on Vocabulary Development of Children
Parents are a child’s first educator. A child’s family and home environment has a strong impact on his/her language, literacy development and educational achievement. This impact is stronger during the child’s early years however it remains continue throughout their school years. There are various factors that influence the child’s language including the vocabulary development. Many researchers carried out the research to find the association of socioeconomic status and home environment on children’s vocabulary development. The present study is undertaken to review the research work carried out to find the influence of SES and home environment on vocabulary development of children especially on preschoolers. After review of existing literature it was found that many variables like family and home environment such as socioeconomic status, level of parental education, family size, parental attitudes, maternal speech, material influence, toys and behaviour etc. influence the vocabulary development of the children. Some findings also shows that quantity of talks, diversification of topics, complexities of talks and use of directive utterances are also associated with large vocabulary development of the children.
