The Growing Child: From Six Through Fifteen Years. Child Health and Safety Series. (Module VIII).
Iscoe, Louise; Kihnel, Barbara
This manual for foster parents and child caregivers (1) provides an outline of normal physical, mental and social/emotional dimensions of child development from age 6 through 15 years of age; (2) indicates what children and youth need from adults in order to develop normally; and (3) identifies problems which may occur in the areas of physical, social and mental growth and suggests ways to handle them. The manual is divided into three sections. Section I considers development age 6 to 8. The need for professional help in dealing with serious problems of learning, emotions and behavior is emphasized. Section II covers the period from age 9 to 12. The emergence of new sexual, racial and ethnic identities and group affiliations at preadolescence is discussed. Section III considers development from age 12 through 15. Normal problems and concerns as well as exceptional problems of adolescent youth are traced. (Three slide/sound presentations and pamphlets were produced in conjunction with this manual.)
