About this product
- DescriptionWith A Child's Brain you can learn how a child's brain works, develops, and changes during the critical stages of childhood. Robert Sylwester provides guidance to help parents and educators understand children's cognitive development and suggestions on how to nurture children to their full potential. A Child's Brain is a rich resource that: examines the body and brain systems that develop during pregnancy, infancy, and childhood; explores factors that can enhance or delay development, such as nutrition, family life, illness, intelligence, techlogy, and the arts; provides practical suggestions to help adults promote healthy development and successful learning in the children they encounter at home, at school, and everywhere else; and includes a glossary of neurobiological terms. A Child's Brain helps parents and educators understand the biological, emotional, and neurological changes of childhood so they can support children's learning, socialization, and growth.
