This new edition of a classic text is the go-to reference for anyone concerned with the developmental progress of pre-school children. It provides the knowledge required for understanding children’s developmental progress with age and within each developmental domain.
Including new sections on atypical development for each of the core domains of development and additional material on the development of attention and self-regulation, this fifth edition integrates findings from the latest research throughout. 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.
Fully aligned with current child development philosophies and practices, Mary Sheridan’s From Birth to Five Years: Children's Developmental Progress is designed to support the wider group of practitioners – including those from health professions, social work and early years – that are now required to take steps for promoting children’s development as part of their assessment and management plans.
