Summary
"This publication is based upon periodic developmental examinations of normative infants throughout the first year of life. The volume deals mainly with findings and genetic interpretations derived from naturalistic observation. The results of the normative survey are reported in six chapters and sixty sections. Chapter Three, which constitutes the core of the book, summarizes the behavior characteristics displayed in twenty-five different situations, instituted at fifteen age levels from four through fifty-six weeks. The newborn infant was not included in our systematic observations. We have not, however, been unmindful of the importance of the neonatal period and (in Chapter Four) have indicated its genetic relations to the fetal and later postnatal period. The book focuses on these basic categories: Postural Behavior; Locomotion; Perceptual Behavior; Prehension; Adaptive Behavior; Language Behavior; and Social Behavior"--Chapter.
