This study examined self-reported parenting behaviors, and child temperament and behavior based on parental perceptions in 50 toddlers, aged 26 to 32 months. Data were obtained via parental reports and direct assessment. Children were identified as speech-language delayed (SLD, n = 20) or language normal (LN, n = 30) based on standardized testing. The results indicated that parents of toddlers who were SLD reported themselves as being significantly less nurturing and more punitive in their discipline than parents of children who were LN. Parental accounts also revealed that children who were SLD were more detached and under-reactive than children without a delay. The implications of these findings are considered with regard to providing intervention to children with early speech-language delay.
