Child and Adolescent Development  takes a chronological approach to the study of child development, with an applied focus.  Authors Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry describe the characteristics and the developmental milestones of the major developmental periods -- infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence --  and discuss the implications and applications of research in child development.  The text provides reliable and practical guidelines to help prospective teachers and other professionals working with children to recognize typical and atypical development and to support the development of children and adolescents in positive ways.
