Middle Childhood Development: A Contextual Approachis a new and integrative resource for practitioners who work with school-age children. This unique text focuses specifically on the school years from ages 6 to 12, providing readers with an illustrative case study in each chapter. Based on recent research findings, the authors provide suggestions on what to expect and how to interact with children in middle childhood. Developmental theories are thoughtfully integrated using an applied developmental-contextual approach-drawing attention to the diverse contexts of family, school, and community.
