Description [Washington, D.C.] : Distributed by ERIC Clearinghouse, 1972 
132 p. 

This workbook was designed to help parents of preschool children take an active role in the education and guidance of their children, particularly in the area of language and vocabulary, social development, and movement. Included are all the sections from the book "Discovering How Children Learn" in addition to parent and child inventories, guidelines for working with children, forms for progress reports, and educational articles. Parent inventories ask parents to report their thoughts and opinions on child-rearing, childhood, and life's goals, and to survey their child's home and community environment. Infant inventories include a behavior inventory and a test of the child's skills in individual and social development, language development, and gross and fine movement development. A developmental guide charts the normal progression of gross and fine movement development, sensory and perceptual development, personal and social development, emotional development, and language development from birth to age 3. A section on methods and strategies presents information that includes teaching strategies and how to work with a positive approach. There are forms for progress reports that chart parent and child development, and a checklist for vocabulary development. Appendices include a discussion of mothers, an explanation of the development of speech, ideas on creating learning situations, a list of recommended reading for parents, and a glossary. (SB)
