This study investigated the relationship between effortful control and long-term memory (LTM) in toddlers. It was hypothesized that children high in effortful control would demonstrate better long-term recall. Participants were 43 children who visited the lab at 18 and 21 months. A word-learning task and an elicited imitation task were administered to assess children’s LTM. Effortful control was assessed using the Early Childhood Behavior Questionnaire (ECBQ). The results of this study showed that children high in effortful control did not demonstrate significantly better LTM than children low in effortful control on either the word-learning or the elicited imitation task.
