School readiness; behavior tests used at the Gesell Institute by Gesell Institute of Child Development( Book )

29 editions published between 1964 and 1978 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This combined text and manual presents the basic educational viewpoint of the Gesell Institute, that children should be entered in school (and consequently grouped and promoted) on the basis of their developmental or behavioral age, not on the basis of their chronological age or iq. The introduction describes the research in which the Institute studied its theory. The main part of the book depicts the various aspects of the Institute's developmental test, describing its administration, evaluating the results, and defining its use in determining school readiness. Also, the results are used to demonstrate the concept of the existence of a specific age, such as 7-year-oldness. A section is devoted to parents, teachers, and administrators to help them understand the function of the testing and how it can help the child. A bibliography and several appendixes are included.

Mosaic patterns of American children [by] Louise Bates Ames [and] Frances L. Ilg by Louise Bates Ames( Book )

9 editions published between 1962 and 2013 in English and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book reports the results of the submission of 1500 children (aged 2-16 yrs) with whom the Gesell Institute has been in touch for many years, to the Lowenfeld Mosaic test. The plan of the work is a year-by-year analysis of the material and a comparison of the developmental findings invested in this cross section with some longitudinal studies of individual children. In this work the authors have laid foundations for a basic outline of developmental changes in boys and girls, as shown in response to a defined stimulus--the manipulation of a standard set of colored geometric shapes. They give us, at the same time, a detailed study of American children. Being nonverbal, the Mosaic test is free from semantic difficulties, since what the child does with the material offered, the design he makes, constitutes his response. Since the designs made are directly reproducible, they can be studied from many different angles, and can be reassessed, if desired, at a future date. A valuable feature of this book is the inclusion of longitudinal studies of individual children to balance the tables of mean values of different qualities selected for analysis at each age level. These studies are of considerable interest, since they show how individual a series of responses to the test can be. Some of these studies support also the suggestion of the possibility of persistence in a given individual of identical types of response for many years, even, as given in one instance here, the persistence of an identical pattern"--Foreword.

Vision, its development in infant and child by Arnold Gesell( Book )

30 editions published between 1946 and 2008 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

VISION- ITS DEVELOPMENT IN INFANT AND CHILD by ARNOLD GESELL, M. D. FRANCES L. ILG., M. D. GLENNA E. BULLIS. Assisted by VIVIENNE ILG, O. D. and G. N. GETMAN, O. D. PAUL B. HOEBER, INC. MEDICAL BOOK DEPARTMENT OF HARPER i-BROTHERS. PREFACE: The background, scope, and genesis of the present volume are outlined in an introductory chapter which follows. There is not much more which needs to be said by way of preface. The investigations of the Yale Clinic of Child Development since its founding in 1911 have been mainly concerned with the growth aspects of early human behavior. All told, the behavior characteristics of 34 age levels have been charted, encompassing the first ten years of life. An intensive longitudinal study of a group of five infants in 1927 established methods for a systematic normative survey. These methods included developmental examinations and inventories at lunar month intervals during the first year of life. Concurrent cinema records were analyzed to define significant behavior patterns and growth trends. Special attention was given to the ontogenetic patterning of posture, locomotion, prehension, and manipulation. Cinemanalysis, both of normative and experimental data, demonstrated that the eyes play an important role in the ontogenesis of the total action system of the total child. The nature and the dynamics of that role constitute the subject matter of the present study. The adult human eye has been likened to a camera. This analogy has had some truth and much tradition in its favor. But it has tended to obscure the developmental factors which determine the structure and the organization of the visual functions during infancy and child hood. The development of vision in the individual child is an extremely complex and protracted process for the very good reason that it took countless ages of evolution to bring human vision to its present pre-eminence. Our culture is becoming increasingly eye minded with the advancing perfection and implementation of the organ of sight. What is that organ It is more than a dioptric lens and a retinal film. It embraces enormous areas of the cerebrum it is deeply involved in the autonomic nervous system it is identified reflexively and directly with the skeletal musculature from head and hand to foot. Vision is so pervasively bound up with the past and present performances of the organism that it must be interpreted in terms of a total, unitary, integrated action system. The nature of the integration, in turn, can be understood only through an appreciation of the orderly stages and relativities of development whereby the integration itself is progressively attained. The authors have attempted to achieve a closer acquaintance with the interrelations of the visual system per se and the total action system of the child. This finally entailed the use of the retinoscope and of analytic optornetry at early age levels where these technical procedures ordinarily are not applied. The examinations of the visual functions and of visual skills were really conducted as behavior tests, not only to determine the refractive status of the eyes, but also to determine the reactions of the child as an organism to specific and total test situations. The objective findings have been correlated with the cumulative evidence furnished by the developmental examinations, numerous inter views, and naturalistic observations of the children at home and in a guidance nursery. Although the conclusions of our study are preliminary in character, we may hope that they will contribute to a better understanding of the child in terms of vision and a better understanding of vision in terms of the child. The two should not be sundered. With increased knowledge it is possible that the visual behavior of the individual child will become an acute index for the appraisal of fundamental constitutional traits
