Abstract

A specialized language program was developed to facilitate abstract thinking in young deprived children through short, individual tutoring sessions on a daily basis. The role of individual attention in the experiment was controlled through the use of a comparison group which had daily individual sessions without the specialized tutoring. A second comparison group was included which consisted of children who received their usual training in the regular nursery school program. The results show a marked gain in IQ for the groups who received the specialized tutoring and no significant gains for the control groups.
