Helping Children Develop Cognitive Skills.
Gilkerson, Deanna
Designed to help family home care providers understand children's cognitive developmental stages, this manual provides practical suggestions for developing and evaluating children's cognitive skills. The manual is divided into four sections focusing respectively on infants, toddlers, preschool children, and school-aged children. Each section contains: (1) a brief summary of the cognitive development appropriate for the age level discussed in the section; (2) suggestions for activities to help caregivers evaluate each child's developmental level; (3) questions to help caregivers evaluate their home's potential as an environment for fostering cognitive development; (4) a variety of developmentally appropriate activity ideas; and (5) an activity evaluation form. Ordering information is also provided for a free newsletter series, "Family Day Care Connections," and the "In-Home Daycare" video which was designed to accompany this manual. (MM)
