Encounters with Children

Pediatric Behavior and Development

The only text of its kind, this Fourth Edition continues to provide a practical how-to guide to normal childhood development and behavior. In addition to exploring the normal stages of development, this informative text discusses the many familial and societal issues that can influence a child's behavior, such as terrorism and disasters, preschool choices, bullying, and divorce. Organized according to the child's age, it takes readers from the neonatal visit and newborn exam all the way through the late adolescent years. Additional topics include ADHD and learning disabilities, autism and other disorders of communication, and reactions to stress. Clinical examples illustrate development and behavior.
