Overview

Designed to help readers comprehend the complexity of child development, DEVELOPMENTAL PROFILES: PRE-BIRTH THROUGH ADOLESCENCE, Seventh Edition, highlights major characteristics for each of the developmental domains in a concise, non-technical, point-by-point format. This edition includes updated information about prenatal care, brain research, gender, and children's concept of death, as well as new sections that address positive behavior guidance for every stage. Another key feature identifies important safety considerations at each developmental stage. Developmental profiles provide extensive information that teachers, families, and service providers will find useful for promoting individualized learning and identifying developmental delays in their earliest stage. The book integrates current research and theory throughout, and emphasizes the importance of working collaboratively with diverse families to achieve maximum benefit for children. In addition, each chapter offers objectives, connections to NAEYC Standards, key terms, in-depth case studies, illustrative videos, and tips for promoting children's curiosity and learning.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I find that the students actually read this book because it is very concise and not overwhelming in the amount of pages to read. Many students have commented that they were going to keep the book, found it useful for their own parenting, and/or shared parts of the book with relatives who had children. I find that it covers the facts so that I can go more in-depth in specific areas."

"This text is very readable and provides students with a concise description of child development."
