Conclusion and recommendations of this study are: for parents, their care and nurture of young children development should be started on or before pregnancy or maternal stage for prevention purpose and the continuation of the growth and life span development through home life experiences are important; for the related governmental departments and educational policy makers, giving more concerns and supports (financial, conceptual and educational etc.) such as promotion through school- parental education would be helpful for “early prevention, early identification & early intervention” on young children’s SID. For extension of this study, researcher would have the interests in planning an action research in such as: “Relationship Development Intervention RDI” in perspective of school-parent’ collaboration project.
