SHELF TO ASSIST PARENTS OF CHILDREN FROM BIRTH TO AGE FIVE LEARNING BEGINS AT BIRTH! Research on brain development has shown that any attempt to maximize intellectual growth must begin the first three years of life; the younger the child, the stronger the effect. Beginning education at age five is too late! The new 3rd edition of SLOW AND STEADY, GET ME READY now includes MEASURABLE PARAMETERS TO PROFILE CHILD DEVELOPMENT, TIPS FOR SOLVING BEHAVIORAL DILEMMAS, THE EARLY BRAIN AND IMPORTANT POINTS with additional illustrations. It is a highly recommended early childhood developmental parenting resource that has achieved recognition in both the educational and medical communities. This resource was awarded the seal of approval from The National Parenting Center and is listed in the Head Start Education Resource Directory.
The Harvard Family Research Project recommended SLOW AND STEADY, GET ME READY to the United States Department of Education, where it now appears in the Educational Research Information Center (ERIC) data base (http://ericir.syr.edu). This preschool parenting resource has been endorsed by Mary Pride, a leading home school educator and author. In addition, this helpful guide has been listed in the Journal of the American Medical Association as a pediatric reference. It has also been recommended by pediatricians and has been used by hospitals and churches in birth and family education programs. This resource has been found to be useful for children with special needs (e.g., autism, learning disabilities, Downs Syndrome, etc.).
The author, June R. Oberlander, mother of two and grandmother of six, is a retired Fairfax County, Virginia kindergarten teacher. She initially wrote the book for her daughter, a dentist, when she sought advice on how to interact in a positive and developmental manner with her first child, Bonnie, who is illustrated on the front cover. Mrs. Oberlander taught 22 years in private and public kindergartens developing ideas that culminated in the publication of this guide. She has spoken before more than 100 groups in schools, hospitals, libraries, churches and parenting organizations throughout the United States. She devotes her energy assisting parents and caregivers in developing preschool skills in their children and refreshing the preschool teaching skills of grandparents.
