Lifespan Development is designed to help your students understand human growth and development across the lifespan. The contents of this text show that even though not all people are alike, they do go through similar stages of development. Young children learn to walk, talk, spell, jump, and tell jokes. Teens learn to become more independent. Adults take on more responsibilities for themselves and others. Throughout the lifespan, people continue to develop and change physically, cognitively, socially, and emotionally. The text also includes strategies that promote lifespan health and wellness.
  • Students will learn about the developmental theories of Erikson, Piaget, Vygotsky, Kohlberg, and beyond.
  • A unit is dedicated to career preparation and opportunities that address career paths in human services and in education and training.
  • Special features throughout the text cover cultural diversity, health, and safety. Case studies are also included in each chapter.
