Evidence-based practice in infant and early childhood psychology.


Evidence-based practice in infant and early childhood psychology.

Ed. by Barbara A. Mowder et al.

John Wiley & Sons


775 pages




Mowder (psychology, Pace U., New York City) was among those who pioneered the integration of the practice of early childhood education, early childhood special education, nursing, and school psychology training. This is noted in the historical context the editors provide in introducing the 25 chapters in this volume, presented as the first comprehensive treatment of evidence-based practice in infant and early childhood psychology. In addition to scientific foundations of assessment and developmentally- appropriate practice for young children diagnosed as having special needs due to conditions ranging from autism to trauma, the authors treat diversity issues, ethical and legal concerns (e.g., regarding parental consent, suspected abuse), and training implications for service providers. The handbook includes useful summary tables.
