Child Development: Early Stages Through Age 12 - Student Workbook
Product Number: WA33324
By Celia Anita Decker, Ed.D. Ninth Edition.Explore the many stages of growth and development that children experience from the prenatal stage through the school-age years. Through an in-depth, comprehensive study of children's physical, intellectual, social, and emotional development, students will learn positive ways to care for children and meet their needs during these formative early years.The works of major child development theorists, such as Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Gardner, and Kohlberg are featured throughout the text. Examples of their work provide important information needed when working with young children.Career information is presented about various child-related occupations, identifying the necessary skills, on-the-job duties, and education requirements needed for achieving success in a child-related career.Brain studies, 21st century learning, and mental health risk factors are explored in depth to present current research findings in child development.Mental health advisories provide information about risk factors, such as toxic stress, to raise awareness about factors that can contribute to mental health problems.Developmental milestone and developmental delay charts explain the different milestones children accomplish by certain ages to reinforce what to expect developmentally at each stage of the child's life.Each chapter is broken into lessons, making it easy to assign manageable assignments and create lessons that introduce and reinforce content for maximum understanding.
