ABSTRACT

Background: Language is the system someone uses to communicate with another person. Receptive language is important to the understanding of a child’s overall language skills. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of maternal skills in early detection and stimulation on receptive language skill of children age 4 to 6 years.

Subjects and Method: A cross sectional study was conducted at kindergarten in Surakarta, Central Java, from December 2019 to January 2020. A sample of 200 preschool children was selected by fixed disease sampling. The dependent variable was receptive language. The independent variables were early detection and early stimulation. Receptive language was measured by receptive one word picture vocabulary test (ROWPVT). The data were analyzed by a multiple linier regression.

Results: Receptive language skill increased with early detection (b= 4.86; 95% CI= 2.68 to 6.33; p<0.001) and early stimulation (b= 3.70; 95% CI= 1.03 to 3.38; p<0.001).

Conclusion: Receptive language skill increased with early detection and early stimulation.

Keywords: receptive language, early detection, early stimulation, health belief model
