Summary

Make it easy for students with little or no background in the movement sciences to understand motor development across the life span. LIFE SPAN MOTOR DEVELOPMENT, FOURTH EDITION, contains more than 130 video clips on an interactive CDROM, access to 28 downloadable laboratory activities, and other features that bring the subject to life. The inclusion of the labs and video clips into the textbook offering effectively replaces the learning activities guide from the previous edition, allowing students to have one book for all their coursework relating to motor development. More reader friendly than ever, the widely used introductory text to life span motor development is an excellent resource that leads students through the principles, research, and applied practice of motor development from infancy to older adulthood. It will help students meet the minimum competencies identified by AAHPERD's Motor Development Academy as they prepare for the Praxis exam for physical education.


LIFE SPAN MOTOR DEVELOPMENT, FOURTH EDITION, continues to present current topics in motor development from a unifying model of constraints approach. Students learn to improve their problem solving ability by looking not only at the individual but also at the environmental and task factors that may affect growth and motor development. In addition, a life span approach has been integrated throughout the text, illustrating the range of motor skills in humans ranging in age from infants to adults.
