Personalizing Care with Infants, Toddlers and Families.
Surbeck, Elaine, Ed.; Kelley, Michael F., Ed.
This publication deals with the present crisis in infant/toddler care. It presents information on infant/toddler development and optimal caregiving paractices, citing recent research on appropriate practices and the impact of poor versus quality care. The book is divided into two sections. In the first section, "Development and Program Implications for Infants, Toddlers and Families," four chapters cover: (1) "The Baby: Birth to 12 Months" (Alice Sterling Honig); (2) "The Second Year: 12 to 24 Months" (Kathryn Castle); (3) "Toddlers: 24 to 36 Months" (Nancy Balaban); and (4) "Quality Integrated Programs for Infants and Toddlers with Special Needs" (David Sexton). The chapters in the second section, "Issues and Dilemmas Confronting Infants, Toddlers and Families," deal with: (5)"Health Issues in a Changing Society" (Veronica D. Feeg); (6) "Infant Day Care" (Michael F. Kelley and Elaine Surbeck); and (7) "Policy Issues Affecting Infants, Toddlers and Their Families" (Eleanor Stokes Szanton). A postscript by Elaine Surbeck concludes the volume. (JD)
