From Birth to Five Years SET, Paperback Book


Mary Sheridan's From Birth to Five Years is widely regarded as the go-to reference for health, education and social care professionals, or anyone concerned with the developmental progress of pre-school children.

In this new fourth edition, the text has been developed to further align it with current child development philosophies and practices, and to support the wider group of professionals that are now required to take steps for promoting children's development as part of their assessment and management plans.

To complement this book, a new companion volume, From Birth to Five Years: Practical Developmental Examination, offers a step-by-step `how to' guide, including guidance on enquiry and observation, how to chart typical and atypical patterns, and `red flags' for recognising significant delay or abnormality. To consolidate and expand on the practical and theoretical information across both books, a new companion website is available at, which includes the following additional learning material:An interactive timeline of the key developmental domains Introductions to theory with links to further reading Research summaries Video clips demonstrating practical assessment skills. Buy both Mary Sheridan's From Birth to Five Years: Children's Developmental Progress, 4th edition and From Birth to Five Years: Practical Developmental Examination together at a reduced price.
