DEVELOPMENTAL PROFILES: PRE-BIRTH THROUGH ADOLESCENCE, Seventh Edition, outlines major characteristics for each of the developmental domains in a concise, non-technical, point-by-point format. Developmental profiles now cover a broader age range, having been expanded to include early, middle, and late adolescence. This edition also includes updated information about prenatal care, brain research, gender, and children’s concept of death, as well as new sections that address positive behavior guidance for every stage. Descriptions of daily activities and routines typical at each age level help families and teachers anticipate and respond appropriately to children’s developmental needs. Developmental profiles provide extensive information that teachers, families, and service providers will find useful for promoting individualized learning and identifying developmental delays in their earliest stage. The book integrates current research and theory throughout, and emphasizes the importance of working collaboratively with diverse families to achieve maximum benefit for children.
