Critical Thinking About Critical Periods
By:Donald Bailey Jr.
This text is the result of a working conference on critical thinking about critical periods. Ways to integrate the various domains of science and educational policy related to the study of early brain and child development are discussed in detail. The following key areas are examined: visual acuity, depth perception and tracking; attachment; language processing and first language acquisition; early intervention and early childhood services.
This book targets relatively sophisticated readers. The authors review a large amount of research and offer a thorough discussion on the differences among critical periods, sensitive periods, and windows of opportunity.
