New Parents: Guidelines for Teaching Infant-Toddler Growth and Development, Birth-24 Months.
Robertson, Audrey S., Ed.; Middleton, Susan, Ed.
This curriculum guide, written to assist health professionals in developing classes for parents of children from birth to 24 months of age, consists of three main sections. The first section, "Preparing for Your Audience," outlines some prerequisites the instructor should take into account when planning learning experiences for adults, discusses how these prerequisites can be met, and suggests resources for generating information concerning parents' interests and needs. The second section, "Family Issues," is designed to serve as a guide and resource for initiating the process of helping parents deal with problems that often stand in the way of their own growth and development. This section includes teaching outlines on the issues of family systems and decisions concerning work and child care, along with a variety of resources related to these issues. The third and final section, "Infant and Toddler Growth and Development," gives ideas for planning a series of classes or workshops either by topic or by age grouping, whichever best meets the needs of the potential participants. As in the second section, the third section includes teaching outlines and a variety of resources related to infant development and health. (MP)
