Providing guidance on a broad range of issues for young children and adolescents, Ergonomics for Children: Designing Products and Places for Toddlers to Teens give you a deep understanding of how children develop and how these developmental changes can influence the design of products and places for children. Copiously illustrated with photos and other images, the book helps you quickly find answers to your questions, grasp concepts, and apply them.

Its subsections are organized to help you locate and understand the content you need. Edited by experts with contributions from an international panel, the book is both broad in coverage and international in perspective. The contributors review the ways in which children develop physically, perceptually, cognitively, and socially and then use this information to provide practical guidelines for the design of places and products for children.
