Promoting School Readiness and Early Learning : Implications of Developmental Research for Practice, Hardback Book

Promoting School Readiness and Early Learning : Implications of Developmental Research for Practice Hardback

Edited by Michel Boivin, Karen L. Bierman

Description

Grounded in cutting-edge developmental research, this book examines what school readiness entails and how it can be improved.

Compelling longitudinal findings are presented on the benefits of early intervention for preschoolers at risk due to poverty and other factors.

The volume identifies the cognitive, language, behavioral, motor, and socioemotional skills that enable young children to function successfully in school contexts.

It explores specific ways in which school- and family-based interventions--including programs that target reading and language, math, self-regulation, and social-emotional development--can contribute to school readiness.

The book also addresses challenges in the large-scale dissemination of evidence-based practices.
