Book Description

This fully updated new edition of From Birth to Five Years: Practical Developmental Examination is a step-by-step ‘how to’ guide to the developmental examination of pre-school children. Based on up-to-date research into current child development philosophies and practices, this text supports the wider group of professionals who are required to assess children’s developmental progress as part of their day-to-day working practices.

It begins with a practical framework for developmental examination, then progresses through each of the key developmental domains, offering guidance on enquiry and observation, and on how to chart typical and atypical patterns, with red flags for recognising significant delay or disordered development. Advice is also given on how to make sense of the findings and how best to communicate this information to parents. To consolidate and expand on the practical and theoretical information across this book and its companion, Mary Sheridan's From Birth to Five Years, an updated companion website is available at www.routledge.com/cw/sharma, which includes the following additional learning material:

  • An interactive timeline of the key developmental domains;
  • Introductions to theory with links to further reading;
  • Research summaries;
  • Video clips demonstrating practical assessment skills;
  • Downloadable resources including pictures to support examination of verbal and non-verbal development, and tips to facilitate and promote development.

Developed alongside the original Mary Sheridan’s From Birth to Five Years: Children’s Developmental Progress, this unique guide expands on its normative developmental stages by offering practical guidance for health, education and social care professionals, or anyone concerned with monitoring children’s developmental progress.
