Green Dragon’s National Infant-Toddler Assessment Handbook helps both parents and teachers. Adults can identify skills and behaviors that typically emerge during early childhood development. The assessment tool contains checklists to keep track of early developmental progress. From birth through age three (0-3), this manual integrates critical concepts and gives one observation and system. This manual, by nationally acclaimed authors Jane Caballero Hodges and Derek Whordley, provides comprehensive descriptions of developmental areas for teachers, students, parents, daycare, and learning center providers. An effective assessment of each child will help plan learning experiences that facilitate growth.
The Infant-Toddler Assessment Handbook has proven invaluable to educators through the years. Specific characteristic skills and behaviors in children from birth to three typically emerge as part of growth. Infants’ developmental milestones are primitive and have changed little throughout time. Green Dragon’s National Infant-Toddler Assessment Handbook provides an overview of the early childhood developmental stages, which will give a better understanding of the assessment process. Nutrition also plays a vital role in childhood development, and this handbook discusses the importance of ensuring children’s nutritional needs are met.
Green Dragon’s National Infant-Toddler Assessment Handbook also provides checklists broken down into four developmental areas. These areas include Social/Emotional, Language, Cognitive, and (Gross and Fine) Motor Skills. Each item on the checklist has information regarding its developmental significance. This manual shows the importance of the skills, how to observe behaviors, and recommends objectives and learning activities if certain milestones have not been met. The handbook is an invaluable resource guide for parents and teachers. This tool has played an influential role in understanding and assessing early childhood development and is widely used today!
