Physical Growth and Development: From Conception to Maturity. A Programmed Text.
Valadian, Isabelle; Porter, Douglas
In 16 self-contained units, this programmed text explores those aspects of growth and development that form the basis of child health care. The text is designed for a wide audience--students beginning their study of growth and development, health-related and social service personnel, medical students, and physicians. The first two units cover basic principles of growth and development and methods of assessing growth and provide experience with the interpretation of different types of growth standards. The remaining fourteen units extend this basic material to specific body systems, including the skeletal, nervous, cardiovascular, respiratory, digestive, excretory, immune, endocrine, and reproductive systems, dentition, muscles, skin and adipose tissue, vision and hearing. Each of the system-oriented units begins with the relevant anatomy and physiology, then examines the development and function of the system and concludes with practical applications. A pretest-posttest is also included with each unit along with suggestions for further reading, and charts, graphs, photographs, and tables accompany the text throughout. (DS)
