This Handbook presents a comprehensive summary of research into child development from age two to seven. Comprising thirty contributions from both established scholars and emerging leaders in the field, it addresses some of the most compelling questions about early experience, such as how important early brain development is, and whether parents matter. The volume covers the full range of research in developmental psychology including: conceptual frameworks; biological and physiological development; cognitive development; language and literacy development; and social, emotional, and regulatory development. It also considers the applications of psychology to the care and education of young children, treating issues such as poverty, family systems, orphanages, media, and the transition to school. The Handbook will be a valuable resource for students and scholars across a range of disciplines, as well as for practitioners working with young children.McCartney, Kathleen is the author of 'Blackwell Handbook of Early Childhood Development', published 2008 under ISBN 9781405176613 and ISBN 140517661X.
