The Wellness of Young Children: A Health-Safety Continuum in Child Development is a one of a kind book that helps the reader realize and explain the health and safety needs of children based on child development. It tells the reader how to predict when appropriate intervention in the child’s environment can minimize risks and promote opportunities for growth and development. Health and safety are both external and internal elements of the child’s environment, and each turn presents a flow of risks and opportunities through which a child’s learning evolves. The book introduces the conceptual device of the risk-to-opportunity continuum, which can be applied to all developmental sequences, skill acquisition progression, and across the spectrum of child development that may be delayed, exceptional, or typical. The book includes realistic vignettes that help with interpretation and problem solving throughout the book. It also includes a Need to Know” notebook and projects at the close of each chapter to help the reader explore thought-provoking questions that extend learning into the challenges of their unique settings in education and care. This unique book encourages the reader to think about the material rather than memorize facts and data, allowing for more complete understanding of the subject matter. This book is designed to invite new ways of considering and problem solving within the intricate landscape of children’s development.Ambery is the author of 'Wellness of Young Children', published 2009 under ISBN 9781418012403 and ISBN 1418012408.
