The purpose of this Child Development Associate (CDA) training module, one of a series of 18, is to help the CDA intern understand the factors and principles which affect the total growth and development of children. Early sections of the module stipulate the module's competency-based objectives, define terms, and suggest procedures by which trainees can evaluate their strengths and weaknesses. Subsequent chapters discuss the nature of child growth and development, prenatal development, the neonate and infancy, and the child's physical, social, emotional, and intellectual development. The module also provides 11 learning activities for the CDA intern. Also listed are books, pamphlets, films, filmstrips, and cassette tapes related to child growth and development. (MP)
