    Abstract

    The current paper presents the MISC approach to early intervention. Its special features, basic differences from other approaches, and research carried out cross culturally and with different populations of children with special needs, are described. The MISC involves the identification, and attempts to enhance, the mediational components within adult-child interaction in a developmentally appropriate manner taking into consideration ethnocultural and ecological variables. The first part of the paper describes the MISC approach, the second part highlights research on the modifiability of the basic variables of mediation and its short and long-term effects on children.
