By Mary R. Fiorentino, Wethersfield, Connecticut. With a Foreword by Josephine C. Moore. Succinct analyses of the various stages of sensorimotor development in relation to reflexes and movement are presented in an integrated, meaningful sequence. The book employs a format in which photographs are accompanied by concise explanations. These photograph/text sets focus on critical developmental stages, behavioral patterns, and/or postural and muscle tone changes due to underlying reflexes. In this manner, the text teaches techniques of observation and conveys an understanding of reflexes and their effects on normal and abnormal sensorimotor development in children. Both students and experienced practitioners of all disciplines concerned with sensorimotor development will benefit from this lucid delineation of the reflexive elements involved.
CONTENTS: Basic Concepts in the Maturation of Normal Sensorimotor Development; The Development and Distribution of Basic Tone; Contribution of Reflexes; Interaction of Reflexes; Normal Development; Abnormal Development; Case Reviews: Treatment Principles; Early Diagnostic Signs.
