Understanding Behaviour and Development in Early Childhood reveals, for example, how behaviour perceived as a difficulta (TM) in a young child may be the manifestation of a response to emotional, sensory and cognitive experiences.

Based on wide ranging professional experience the topics examined and discussed in this insightful book include:
The book provides suggestions for how adults may think about and respond to changes in childrena (TM)s behaviour, and how we may support children in learning how to manage their own behaviour as they grow older and encounter wider and more complex situations.
Understanding the meaning of behaviour is a constant challenge for anyone working with children. This developmental approach promotes a helpful reflective stance for practitioners and students working in early childhood education and care.
