UNDERSTANDING CHILD DEVELOPMENT, 9th Edition, introduces you to the unique qualities of the young child as distinguished from older children and demonstrates how to work with young children in ways that correspond with their individual developmental level and social and cultural environment. Specific NAEYC Program Standards and Accreditation Criteria and Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) guidelines are highlighted at the beginning of the chapter and with icons throughout the text. New Brain Development boxes focus on relevant brain research, Child Development in the Real World provides practical applications of key topics, and TeachSource Video boxes highlight relevant videos available on the Education CourseMate website. Other topics covered include readiness, assessment, the importance of working with children and families from diverse cultures, and the development of early stages of reading. Throughout the text, real-life examples and anecdotes bring theory and research to life.
