From Birth to Five Years, based on the pioneering work of Mary Sheridan, is widely regarded as the go-to reference for health, education and social care professionals, or anyone concerned with the developmental progress of pre-school children.

In this new fourth edition, the text has been developed to further align it with current child development philosophies and practices, and to support the wider group of professionals that are now required to take steps for promoting children’s development as part of their assessment and management plans. This book aims to improve the clinical management of children with developmental disorders, through providing the full range of developmental attainments, methods of observation, and advice about when to seek help.

Features of this completely revised edition include:

For students and tutors – information on theoretical aspects of development, with further reading suggestions and references including the most recent international studies in the field

A new section on the development of attention and self-regulation

Contemporary case studies with guidance on when to raise concerns for students and teachers

Discussion points to stimulate class debate

To complement this book, a new companion volume, From Birth to Five Years: Practical Developmental Examination, offers a step-by-step ‘how to’ guide, including guidance on enquiry and observation, how to chart typical and atypical patterns, and ‘red flags’ for recognising significant delay or abnormality.

To consolidate and expand on the practical and theoretical information across both books, a new companion website is available at www.routledge.com/cw/sharma, which includes the following additional learning material:

An interactive timeline of the key developmental domains

Introductions to theory with links to further reading

Research summaries

Video clips demonstrating practical assessment skills

Do you understand the difference between a square and a rhombus well enough to explain it to a child?

Could you weigh out 12 grams of sand if you were given weights of 3 grams, 7 grams and 16 grams?

Can you spot common errors in subtraction calculations and identify the likely misconceptions behind them?

This Student Workbook reinforces and applies concepts introduced in Derek Haylock’s Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers. With over 700 tested questions endorsed by primary PGCE trainees, along with detailed solutions and explanatory notes, the Student Workbook helps you gain the confidence you need to understand, apply and teach the primary maths curriculum.

Checking Understanding questions are designed to help you check your own knowledge of terminology, understanding of key concepts and principles, and your mastery of important skills. Reasoning and Problem-solving questions encourage you to use and apply mathematical concepts in solving mathematical puzzles or problems in real life situations. Learning and Teaching solutions include responses to children’s errors and misunderstandings, development of teaching ideas, evaluation of teaching approaches, and consideration of objectives to promote understanding.

Visit the companion website for Mathematics Explained for Primary Teachers at study.sagepub.com/haylock5e to take advantage of even more learning resources, such as step-by-step solution videos, additional practice questions, activities to include in lesson plans and access to Derek Haylock’s blog.

Derek Haylock is an education consultant and writer with a background in mathematics teaching, teacher education and classroom-based research in mathematics education.
