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.
"Lovely and practical summary of child development" - NEJM 2006"Unique in its blending of theory and practical advice and its sensitivity to families and their important role in the child’s development... In their 4th edition of Encounters with Children, Drs. Dixon and Stein have retained all that was wonderful about the previous editions while adding more than 150 pages of new material… This book continues to be my favourite child development book." - Dr. Linda S. Grossman, Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics. 28(6):437, December 2007.
