This Encyclopedia is for anyone who wants to know more about the field of child development. This includes parents, teachers, professionals in the health fields, such as doctors and nurses, social workers, lawyers, people involved in creating policies that affect children and families, school board members, and high school and college students who are interested in learning more about children or are writing a term paper on an aspect of child development.
The editors emphasized the importance of writing for an educated audience that might not yet be familiar with many of the terms and ideas relevant to understanding a child's development. We tried to make this material informative and approachable, but not overly technical. We hope that we have achieved our goal.
