Child and Adolescent Development takes a chronological approach to the study of child development, with an applied focus. Authors Anita Woolfolk and Nancy Perry describe the characteristics and the developmental milestones of the major developmental periods -- infancy and toddlerhood, early childhood, middle childhood, and adolescence -- and discuss the implications and applications of research in child development. The text provides reliable and practical guidelines to help prospective teachers and other professionals working with children to recognize typical and atypical development and to support the development of children and adolescents in positive ways.
"[This text is] well written with a clear focus on the undergraduate audience, it covers a wide range of relevant topics that undergraduates are interested in, it makes human development theories accessible to undergraduates, and it integrates multiple cultural lenses ... I absolutely love it compared to the other options on the market in this field ... this book does a great job at allowing for adequate depth and breadth across many topics and theories." -- Michelle Tichy, University of Northern Iowa
"One of the reasons I changed to this text was the very clear and interesting writing style. I found myself absorbed in the information even though I have been using these types of texts for decades. ... [T]here is a great deal of material on practical considerations related to parenting and teaching as well as to cross-cultural issues and diversity." -- Sandra Twardosz, University of Tennessee, Knoxville
