Gaining Basic Skills in the Early Years: The dynamics of development from birth to 10

Author:   Muriel Egerton and John Bynner

Description:  BCS70 collected data on cognitive development at 22 months and 42 months in sub-samples of the cohort. Analysis of the data has shown striking social class gradients, which widen over time. However, despite the handicap of restricted cognitive development earlier on, many children are able to over-ride their difficulties and experience normal educational development, including proficiency in the basic skills. The aim of the analyses reported here is to trace the performance over time of children who were low achievers at ages 22 months, 42 months and 5 years. The analyses identify factors in the child's lives which were 'protective' working against the consequences of 'risk' factors located in family backgrounds. Protective factors are identified by comparison with the performance of children where the predictability of risk was borne out in poor basic skills at age 10.
