This exciting first edition, Child and Adolescent Development, uniquely offers a new text for teacher education with a chronological approach.  Spiraling coverage of physical, cognitive, and social and emotional development, the text chapters sequence discussions of the developmental milestones of children and adolescents, 0-20, and the universal and diverse contexts in which they grow up. Written with a lens on global perspectives, the text not only presents the influences of self and others on children's and adolescent's development but also how cultural contexts cultivate the development of language and values and affect physical growth. Knowledgeable and revered authors, Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry, explore the implications and applications of the best research in child development and provide reliable and practical guidelines to help  prospective teachers, counselors, speech therapists, recreational leaders, and medical practioners recognize the typical and atypical development of children and adolescents and learn how to  support all development in positive ways.
