Perceptual and Motor Development in Infants and Children. Second Edition.
Cratty, Bryant J.
Motor behavior, motor performance, and motor learning are discussed at length within the context of infant and child development. Individual chapters focus on the following: the sensory-motor behavior of infants; analysis of selected perceptual-motor programs; beginnings of movement in infants; gross motor attributes in early childhood; visual perceptual development; body image; manipulative behavior; scribbling and drawing; motor development in children from six to twelve; social development; the child in competitive sport; the awkward child; and physique and ethnic background. Attention is also addressed to the reasons for possible individual differences in performance and learning (race, ethnic background, physique, etc.). References, questions for discussion, and suggested projects, observations, and learning experiences are provided at the end of each chapter, and an index is included at the end. The book is designed primarily for use as a text in motor and child development courses. (DS)
