Child Development: Early Stages Through Age 12 provides students the knowledge needed to work with and care for children as they grow. All areas of development―physical, intellectual, social, and emotional―are addressed so students can better understand, assess, and meet the needs of children. The child development principles and theories of Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, and Gardner are highlighted. Additionally, the text explores play activities, ways to keep children healthy, and group programs.

  • A new chapter provides additional information on brain development.
  • Child-related occupations are discussed in detail, including duties, education requirements, and job outlook.
  • Case Studies are included in each chapter of the book to help students relate content to real-world situations.
