Assessment and Intervention Issues Across the Life Span Book Review:

This volume evolved from the second life span development conference held at Southern Illinois University entitled "Assessment and Intervention Across the Lifespan." Providing an overview and consideration of important directions for research in areas of assessment and intervention across the lifespan, the presentations covered a variety of topic areas including social ecology, cultural diversity, attitudes about aging, as well as attention, visual, and linguistic skills. This volume consists of chapters based on the conference presentations as well as additional chapters by experts in related specialty areas discussing attachment theory, learning disabilities, and phonological processing. The second conference and volume continue the work of the first conference and its associated earlier volume. The chapters cover important interactions between assessment and intervention for each major developmental period; several emphasize the importance of early assessment and intervention. A common theme found throughout is the critical connection between basic research and practice. The editors hope this book will prove useful not only to researchers, but also to practitioners in related disciplines working with individuals of all ages.

Life span Communication Book Review:

Life-Span Communication: Normative Processes is a unique collection of articles within the field of human communication. Twenty internationally recognized scholars have written original articles which stress communication as a developmental phenomenon. Each article is placed within a specific development phase. Each article is placed within the context of a normal life span. Each chapter does have meaning unto itself, yet, the purpose of this book is to emphasize that meaning inherent within any communicative act is bound by the point in one's life in which that act occurs.

Developing Talent Across the Life Span Book Review:

This volume presents fascinating new theoretical perspectives and empirical findings on the life-span development of talent. It shows how talents are the result of the acquisition of a sequence of skills and how the acquisition of these skills is facilitated by changes in the individual's environment. It explores to what degree the development of high intelligence or achievement is similar to the development of specific domains such as personality, morality, painting, musical performance, or professional skills. It questions whether the development of talent observed for specific groups is similar to individual cases and how the different numbers of highly talented women and men in several domains are to be explained.

Human Development Across the Life Span Book Review:

A thorough, comprehensive, topical introduction to human development. In rejecting classic "age" and "stage" treatments of human development, these authors take an approach that better shows the continuity of the developmental process. They emphasize the interdisciplinary nature of the field by integrating pertinent ideas from such diverse sources as sociology, biology, and cultural anthropology. This edition embraces more discussion of infancy, greater coverage of the adult, and a more thorough look at the role of women in a person's growth and development than the previous edition.
