Sensory-Motor Organizations and Development in Infancy and Early Childhood

Human Motor Development A Lifespan Approach [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Sensory-Motor Organizations and Development in Infancy and Early Childhood by H. Bloch,B.I. Bertenthal Book Summary:

This book is the outcome of a Nato Workshop, held in France in July 1989. The workshop was organized to examine current ideas about sensory-motor organizations during human infancy and their development through early childhood. The study of sensory-motor development is experiencing a profound shift in scope, focus, methodology and theoretical foundations. Many of these changes are quite new and not yet well covered in the literature. We thought it would be useful for some of the leading researchers in this field to convene together and to compare notes, and collectively to establish future directions for the field. The reasons for a new conceptualization of sensory-motor development are no doubt numerous, but three are especially significant: 1. One concerns a shift from studying either sensory or motor processing to investigation of the relations between the two. 2. The second is connected to the new emphasis on action, and its implications for goal-directed and intentional behaviour extending over time. 3. Lastly, new theories and methodologies provide access to new tools for studying and conceptualizing the developmental process. 1.-One of the most enduring legacies of the behaviorist perspective has been a focus on the stimulus and the response to the exclusion of the relation between them (Pick, 1989). Historically, this bias translated into a research agenda in which the investigator was concerned with either perceptual or motor competence, but rarely the relation between them.

Life-span Development

Human Motor Development A Lifespan Approach [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Life-span Development by Leonie Sugarman Book Summary:

This thorough revision of the highly successful first edition of Life-Span Development offers the reader a wide-ranging and thought provoking account of human development throughout the lifespan. The lifespan approach emphasises that development does not stop when we cease to be adolescents but goes on throughout adulthood and into old age. In initial chapters Leonie Sugarman outlines the issues surrounding the notion of development and how it can be studied, including reviews of the work of key theorists Erikson, Levinson and Gould. She goes on to consider the different ways in which the life course can be construed: as a series of age-related stages; as a cumulative sequence; as a series of developmental tasks; as a series of key life events and transitions or as a narrative construction which creates a sense of dynamic continuity. A final chapter looks at how people cope, the resources that are available and the theoretical and practical issues regarding interventions to assist them in the process. New to this edition is increased coverage of the topical issue of successful ageing and a new chapter on the increasingly popular narrative approach to lifespan development. This edition is also more student-friendly with exercises in self-reflection that encourage the reader to look at the development of their own lives or those of their current or future clients. Boxed material highlighting major theories and clarifying concepts is also included. This book will be invaluable for students of developmental and occupational psychology and professionals in the fields of health management, education and social work.

From Neurons to Neighborhoods

Human Motor Development A Lifespan Approach [Pdf/ePub] eBook

From Neurons to Neighborhoods by Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education,Institute of Medicine,Board on Children, Youth, and Families,Committee on Integrating the Science of Early Childhood Development Book Summary:

How we raise young children is one of today's most highly personalized and sharply politicized issues, in part because each of us can claim some level of "expertise." The debate has intensified as discoveries about our development-in the womb and in the first months and years-have reached the popular media. How can we use our burgeoning knowledge to assure the well-being of all young children, for their own sake as well as for the sake of our nation? Drawing from new findings, this book presents important conclusions about nature-versus-nurture, the impact of being born into a working family, the effect of politics on programs for children, the costs and benefits of intervention, and other issues. The committee issues a series of challenges to decision makers regarding the quality of child care, issues of racial and ethnic diversity, the integration of children's cognitive and emotional development, and more. Authoritative yet accessible, From Neurons to Neighborhoods presents the evidence about "brain wiring" and how kids learn to speak, think, and regulate their behavior. It examines the effect of the climate-family, child care, community-within which the child grows.

The approach offers a perfect balance between sound pedagogy and fun activities that will engage your students and keep them learning. Skill Chapter Organization The authors have organized the content in a way that makes it easy to locate and implement a multitude of activities that will help children grasp the fundamental skills. Each skill chapter includes the following: • An introduction, which includes a suggested age at which the skill or a portion of the skill should be mastered and, where appropriate, where the skill aligns with the National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes • Four to six critical elements that are necessary for the skill to be correctly performed • Cue words to help students remember each critical element • Partner skill check assessments that help partners evaluate others’ progress • Success Builders to help students correct problems • Activities for practicing the entire skill at once • Troubleshooting charts for identifying problem areas • Lesson plans that guide you through the instructional sequence New to This Edition The content is directly tied to the SHAPE America National Standards and Grade-Level Outcomes and is endorsed by SHAPE America, which is including it in their lineup of resources for physical educators. A web resource contains reproducible forms and checklists. This material is easily accessible and printable from mobile devices. And you’ll find the fillable PDFs to be a great aid for your record keeping. Each skill is animated on the web resource. These animations will help children better understand the critical elements of each skill and identify skill techniques that need to be corrected. All the content is now in print. In the previous edition, much of the content was available only on a CD-ROM.
