"Life Span Motor Development, Fourth Edition, brings readers up to date on the most recent research findings and continues to present topics from a unifying model of constraints approach. Students learn to improve their problem-solving ability by looking not only at the individual but also at environmental and task factors that may affect growth and motor development. In addition, a life span approach has been integrated throughout the text, illustrating the range of motor skills in humans ranging in age from infants to adults. It will help students meet the minimum competencies identified by AAHPERD's Motor Development Academy as they prepare for the Praxis exam for physical education."--BOOK JACKET.
