Mary Sheridan's From Birth to Five Years
From Birth to Five Years, based on the pioneering work of Mary Sheridan, is widely regarded as the go-to reference for health, education and social care professionals, or anyone concerned with the developmental progress of pre-school children.
Features of this completely revised edition include:
For students and tutors – information on theoretical aspects of development, with further reading suggestions and references including the most recent international studies in the field
A new section on the development of attention and self-regulation
Contemporary case studies with guidance on when to raise concerns for students and teachers
Discussion points to stimulate class debate
To complement this book, a new companion volume, From Birth to Five Years: Practical Developmental Examination, offers a step-by-step ‘how to’ guide, including guidance on enquiry and observation, how to chart typical and atypical patterns, and ‘red flags’ for recognising significant delay or abnormality.
To consolidate and expand on the practical and theoretical information across both books, a new 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
Video clips demonstrating practical assessment skills
