Synopsis:
The eighth edition of Understanding Motor Development: Infants, Children, Adolescents, Adults provides readers with both an explanatory and a descriptive basis for the processes of motor development. Covering the entire lifespan, this text focuses on the phases of motor development and provides a solid introduction to the biological, affective, cognitive, and behavioral aspects within each developmental stage. Readers are presented with the most up-to-date research and theory, while the Triangulated Hourglass Model is used as a consistent conceptual framework that clearly defines infant, childhood, adolescent, and adult motor development.

Key Features:
-- In order to reflect current research and professional viewpoints, all chapters have been extensively revised, particularly those focused on the development of fundamental movement, perceptual-motor development, and motor skill intervention.
-- Age-group-specific chapters in the Eighth Edition feature an enhanced focus on intervention.
-- Developmental Dilemma Boxes consider interesting and perplexing questions raised by the study of human development.
-- International Perspective Boxes consider how perspectives on various aspects of human growth and development differ depending on cultural norms, ethnicity, socioeconomic conditions, and a host of other factors.
-- Every new print copy includes access to Navigate 2 Advantage, a dynamic technology solution with online learning materials including an interactive eBook, student study aids and assessments, and more.
