Have you ever considered what atypical development looks like in practice? Or how it occurs? Would you like to know which children are most at risk and why?
In this new and fully updated edition, Janet M. Empson explores what is 'normal' and what is 'atypical' or 'unusual' in children's development. Combining key research with insightful case studies and examples, she examines the processes, circumstances, and conditions associated with developing atypically. This is invaluable reading for both students and professionals involved in child development.
Dr. Janet Empson is currently Visiting Fellow to the Faculty of Development and Society at Sheffield Hallam University following a career of nearly thirty years of research and lecturing in developmental psychology at various universities in the UK. She has held the positions of Research Fellow on a project on transmitted deprivation at the University of Hull, and Principal Lecturer and Head of Psychology at Sheffield Hallam University.
