Learning Through Child Observation is a handbook designed for anyone working or preparing to work with young children and their families in any kind of setting, whether in education/care, social work or health, in both the independent and public sectors. Focusing on the professional's need to recognise fully the child's developmental and emotional state when they intervene, this accessible text helps students acquire and improve the skills needed both in the collection of evidence through observation and in the use of that material. Throughout the book two principles are emphasised: the need to see children `holistically' and as unique individuals; and to understand them in their wider context of family, community and culture. An introductory chapter explores the complexity of provision for children and families, and further chapters highlight such issues as: the value of observation the evolving theories of child development the practical aspects and methods of observational study the analysis of observation sessions and explorations of themes the uses of observation in asessment the planning of course programmes
