Wojcik, Bonnie; And Others
Text, illustrations, and exercises are utilized in these four learning modules to instruct parents and nursing students in topics related to child care and development. The first module, "Growth and Development: Let's Test Your Baby's Reflexes" by Bonnie Wojcik, describes the behavioral signs that are indicative of eight normal primitive reflexes displayed by infants up to three months of age: the startle, magnet, crossed extension, tonic neck, trunk incurvation, dance or walk, mouth, and grasp reflexes. The second module, "Bathing the Newborn," was written by Katheryn Guthrie to teach nurses working in maternity wards how to bathe hours-old babies. The third module, "How to Bathe a Newborn" by Jane Hamilton, teaches expectant and new parents what materials are needed, how to hold an infant, and how to properly care for the baby's eyes. The fourth module, "My Child Has a Cleft" by Linda K. Nishinaka, helps parents cope with their emotional reactions to the birth of a child with a cleft lip and/or palate and discusses the role of the parent in assuring the child's physical and emotional well-being. Each of the modules provides sequential reinforcement exercises with immediate feedback and concludes with a post-test and accompanying answer key. The Lime required to complete the modules is specified, ranging from 20 to 30 minutes. (JP)
