Abecedarian : the ideas, the approach, and the findings /

by Ramey, Craig T | Sparling, Joseph J | Ramey, Sharon L.

Publisher: Los Altos, CA Sociometrics Corp. 2012Description: xix, 364 p. : ill.Notes: Includes bibliographical references (p. [285]-364)Summary: This is a history and practical guide about The Abecedarian Project, an early education experiment launched in 1971 and then replicated in multiple other studies. The Abecedarian Approach is evidence-informed and 'total child' in the way it promotes learning and positive academic and social outcomes for children who begin life 'at risk' due to social or biological factors. The Abecedarian Project is a landmark study conducted in Chapel Hill, North Carolina with 111 children born into extremely impoverished life circumstances. The intervention involved intensive learning and social-emotional supports, starting in infancy and continuing until at least kindergarten entry, for children and their families. For the first-time ever, this book brings together all of the key details of this scientific and educational project so that community leaders, educators, policymakers, and parents know exactly what the 'Abecedarian Approach' means. This book provides a down-to-earth blueprint for how to use and adapt the Abecedarian Approach for different groups of children and families living in many diverse communities in today's rapidly changing world. The book emphasizes how to actively engage young children and their families so that children receive the full range of enriching, growth-promoting experiences they need to be well-prepared for school entry and later achievement in academic and personal-social areas. The Abecedarian Approach has been used successfully in center-based care, home visiting programs, family day homes, and public school pre-K settings. Today, the Abecedarian Approach is one of the few evidence-based, proven programs that integrates basic principles of human learning and development into a fun, affordable, and effective approach to early childhood education.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).

ECUMENICAL MIGRATION CENTRE (EMC). Family RelationshipsSummary: "The study of attachment has yielded important discoveries about parent-child relationships, the internal world, and psychopathology. Yet until quite recently, therapists were largely left to draw their own inferences about the clinical applications of this growing body of knowledge. In this book, David J. Wallin translates attachment theory and research into an innovative framework that grounds adult psychotherapy in the facts of childhood development. Thoughtful, practical, and highly readable, the volume offers fresh insights on the therapist's role as well as clear-cut recommendations for practice." -- Book jacket.Availability: Items available for loan: Brotherhood of St Laurence (1).
