Overview

Sugden and Wade, leading authors in this area, comprehensively cover motor development and motor impairment, drawing on sources in medicine and health-related studies, motor learning and developmental psychology. A theme that runs through the book is that movement outcomes are a complex transaction of child resources, the context in which movement takes place, and the manner in which tasks are presented. The core themes of the book involve descriptions of motor development from conception through to emerging adulthood, explanations of motor development from differing theoretical, empirical, and experiential perspectives, and descriptions and explanations of atypical motor development when the resources of the child are limited in some way.

Their comprehensive discussion of complex issues such as methodology, religious identities, and differing measurements, appeals to scholars in many disciplines working on religion and demographics. This book is going to be the resource future generations of scholars will build on."—Rachel M. McCleary, Harvard Kennedy School of Government
