Annotation

This inquiry explored associations between mothers’ depressive symptoms and the Turkish heritage vocabulary of their school-age children. Mothers’ depressive symptoms were not significantly associated with children’s vocabulary in fourth grade, but did portend slower growth in children’s vocabulary from fourth to sixth grade.
