About this book

Early childhood development refers to the skills that children acquire within their first five years of life, which lay the foundation for future learning. Children need care and support to stimulate their growth and healthy development. The stimulation of language, understanding, personal, social and motor skills of the child are important at an early age and it is one of the primary physicians’ responsibilities to give proper advice to parents on how to promote their children’s physical and mental development. Enhancing Early Child Development: A Handbook for Clinicians is a quick reference guide for pediatricians, clinicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners that aims at promoting early stimulation and intervention for optimizing development of normal children as well as children with cerebral palsy and autism. Designed to be used in daily practice, this book will  provide counsel for clinicians, parents and caregivers and advise them on the appropriate methods to enhance their child’s development at different ages based on their health condition. In addition, Enhancing Early Child Development: A Handbook for Clinicians, incorporates a summary of the manual entitled "Counsel the Family on Care for Child Development" developed by UNICEF and WHO, which addresses child development in low resource countries.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This book offers readers the different facets of child development and early interventions in a range of children. … a resource for primary care providers, such as paediatricians and even specialists, but it has relevance as a reference book to parents/caregivers of children, early childhood teachers and to students across disciplines. … this book will be of interest to all readers who are keen to have fresh insights into various developmental issues relating to young children.” (Sujatha Gomathinayagam, He Kupu, Vol. 3 (3), November, 2013)

“This interesting text reviews the possibility to enhance early childhood development in normal children and those with behavioral and psychological problems. Recommended to all pediatricians.” (Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews (PER), Vol. 10 (4), July, 2013)
