Key Features


The Yale Child Study Center Guide to Understanding Your Child was a landmark essential resource for parents, offering accessible information on child development based on a deep understanding of brain research and psychology. Now that knowledge has been distilled in The Educator's Guide to Understanding Child Development, which is designed to inform educators' practice with a solid grounding in child development.

Educators and parents alike recognize that children don't grow up simply by adding inches and pounds- child development is a much richer mix of physical, cognitive, social, and emotional growth. Though children make progress at their own pace, educators can help them on their individual paths. Understanding the many ways in which children grow forms the essence of good teaching. If you appreciate the ebbs and flows of development, you can teach children with more insight and confidence, and offer support and guidance to their parents and caregivers. Problems can arise, of course, in every child's life.

Dr. Mayes's reassuring approach helps educators understand the nature of a problem, how they can address it, and when and where to go for help with concerns such as learning disabilities, bullying, sibling rivalry, depression, anger, and other difficult feelings. This guide will be an incredible resource on every educator's bookshelf.
