Barry, Virginia M., Ed.; Cantor, Patricia, Ed.
Focus on Infants and Toddlers, v12 n1-4 Fall 1999-Sum 2000
These four quarterly newsletter issues address various topics of interest to child caregivers. Each issue focuses on a theme and includes articles on that theme, along with regular news or vice president's columns. The Fall 1999 issue addresses family play and seeks to encourage families to regard play as a way of relaxing and finding contentment together. The issue includes articles on family fun with young children with disabilities and on family games. The Winter 1999 issue celebrates infant/toddler teachers, and its articles discuss the implications of new brain research for such teachers, preparing infant/toddler teachers for inclusion of children with disabilities, and the pioneering work of Harriet Johnson. The Spring 2000 issue's theme is young children's brain growth and development. The issue's articles discuss infant nutrition and brain development, language and the developing brain, and eliminating hazards to brain development in children's environments. The Summer 2000 issue focuses on the art of caring for young children, with an article on the benefits of establishing partnerships between child care providers and early intervention specialists, and another discussing crucial factors in working with young children, such as self-awareness and working with parents.
