Overview

Developmental Profiles: Pre-birth through Twelve, 4E outlines major characteristics for each of the developmental domains in a concise, non-technical, point-by-point format. Developmental profiles have been expanded to now include middle childhood. Sections highlighting children's daily routines and patterns have been incorporated to assist readers in understanding the nature of development and translate emerging skills into everyday behavior. Updated information about prenatal care and brain research has been added, and critical safety considerations for each developmental stage with suggestions for appropriate adult supervision are identified. Supporting the importance of family, respect for diversity, and the uniqueness of individual differences in children's abilities from pre-birth to age twelve, this book places emphasis on the quality of care, learning experiences, and education for the wholesome development of all young children.

Meet the Author

K. Eileen Allen, professor emerita, was a member of the Early Childhood faculty at the University of Washington in Seattle and at the University of Kansas in Lawrence. For thirty-one years she taught graduate and undergraduate courses in child development, developmental disabilities in young children, parenting, early education, and an interdisciplinary approach to early intervention and inclusion. She also trained teachers and supervised research-focused classrooms at both schools and has published seven college textbooks as well as numerous research articles and position papers in major professional journals. During her retirement, she continues to write and advocate on behalf of children and families. Her most recent book is entitled, I LIKE BEING OLD: A GUIDE TO MAKING THE MOST OF AGING.

Lynn R. Marotz (Ph.D., M.Ed., B.S.N.) served as the health and safety coordinator and associate director of the Edna A. Hill Child Development Center (University of Kansas) for 35 years. She has worked closely with students in the Early Childhood teacher education program and taught undergraduate and graduate courses in the Department of Applied Behavioral Science, including issues in parenting, health/safety/nutrition for the young child, administration, and foundations of early childhood education. She provides frequent in-service training in first aid, safety, child abuse, and identification of children's health problems for early childhood students and community educators. In addition to authoring invited chapters in many publications and law books, she is the co-author of DEVELOPMENTAL PROFILES: PRE-BIRTH THROUGH ADOLESCENCE, MOTIVATIONAL LEADERSHIP IN EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION, and BY THE AGES (all from Cengage Learning). Her research activities focus on childhood obesity and children's health, safety, and nutrition. She has presented extensively at international, national, and state conferences and held appointments on national, state, and local committees and initiatives that advocate on the behalf of children and families.
