    • Abstract:
      This study sought to explore low-income father–infant interactions in teaching situations. Forty-four biological fathers and infants, recruited from an ongoing study of early intervention, were observed using the NCAST Teaching Scale during a teaching task in the home. Results indicated that fathers who lived with their infants were more sensitive to infant cues during the interactions. Also, fathers identified as “lower risk,” based on a risk index created from demographic characteristics, were more sensitive to their infants during interactions, had higher total father NCAST scores and higher total NCAST scores during teaching interactions. © 1999 Michigan Association for Infant Mental Health [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
