Designed to help you comprehend the complexity of child development, DEVELOPMENTAL PROFILES: PRE-BIRTH THROUGH ADOLESCENCE, Eighth Edition, highlights major characteristics for each of the developmental domains in a concise, non-technical, point-by-point format. The book covers the full range of stages in child and adolescent development, highlighting important safety considerations at each developmental stage. This edition provides extensive information that teachers, families, and service providers will find useful for promoting individualized learning and identifying developmental delays in their earliest stage. It integrates current research and theory throughout, and emphasizes the importance of working collaboratively with diverse families to achieve maximum benefit for children. Both preservice and practicing teachers will turn to this excellent reference over and over again for comprehensive, easy-to-find information about each stage of development.


“This is a new and engaging textbook on Child Development that has a great deal of student teacher candidate interaction. The student teacher candidate can see real life classrooms in action and be able to apply the knowledge easily.”

“It’s very well written. It’s written so that it is not overwhelming to the students, flows very easily, and is straight to the point and well formatted.”
