An invaluable guide to children's brain development for parents, teachers, or anyone else who works with young children. With A Child’s Brain you can learn how a child’s brain works, develops, and changes during the critical stages of childhood. Robert Sylwester, author of twenty books, has written this latest book to help parents and educators understand children’s cognitive development and provide suggestions on how to nurture children to their full potential. A Child’s Brain is a rich resource that:
Examines the neurobiology of childhood, explaining 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, relationships, illness, intelligence, technology, creativity, 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
Includes a glossary of neurobiological terms
And covers much more!
A Child’s Brain helps parents and educators understand the biological, emotional, and neurological changes that occur during childhood so they can support children’s learning, socialization, and growth.
