Developing a practical way to stimulate development day by day is quite another challenge, one that Helping Babies Learn meets well. This imaginative book is packed with developmental activities that fit easily into daily life. Parents and professionals alike will enjoy a deeper understanding of child development and a renewed enthusiasm for encouraging-and enjoying-a childs growth. And the innovative technique of presenting the text from the childs point of view gives adults new insight into the childs world.
Helping Babies Learn was developed by a team of professionals experienced in child development work-Setsu Furuno, Ph.D.- Katherine A. OReilly, PT, MPH- Takayo T. Inatsuka, OTR- Carol M. Hosaka, M.A.- and Barbara Zeisloft Falbey, M.S., CCC-SLP. The manual encompasses a wide range of developmental domains-social and emotional, cognitive, expressive language, gross-motor skills, fine-motor skills, and self-help. Designed for easy use, the text is organized by three-month intervals (for example, for babies 0-3 months, 3-6 months, and so on) and by activities that reflect daily family life.
The activities are grouped by: *Home routines*Indoor activities*Excursions*Social development*Health and safety The Hawaii Developmental Charts that come with this book provide a handy way to track a childs development in more than 600 skills.
