The sequence of physical, language, thought and emotional changes that occur in a child from birth to the beginning of adulthood is referred to as child development. During this process, a child begins gaining independence of decision making and performing activities. Child development is strongly determined by genetic factors and events during prenatal life. It is also regulated by environmental factors and the learning capacity of the child. Targeted therapeutic intervention and the right home-based practices can actively enhance child development. It covers the full scope of skills that a child masters over their life span including cognitive development, social interaction and emotional regulation, speech and language, physical skills, and sensory awareness. This book explores all the important aspects of child development in the present day scenario. It will also provide interesting topics for research which interested readers can take up. This book is appropriate for students seeking detailed information in this area as well as for experts.
