"This book provides a remarkably simple, intuitively pleasing, yet fascinating way to enhance communication, social interaction, and the sharing of inner worlds between parents and infants before they can talk." -- Daniel N. Stern, MD Author of "Diary of a Baby "This delightfully written book provides parents and caregivers alike a step-by-step approach to encouraging the use of Baby Signs for objects, events, and needs. Opening up this nonverbal channel for communication helps both adult and child through that difficult stage when the desire to communicate outstrips the baby's capacity to say words." -- Susan Crockenberg, PhD Professor of Psychology, University of Vermont Have you ever noticed how easily babies learn to wave "bye-bye, " or shake their heads for "no, " and not for "yes"? These nonverbal gestures, or Baby Signs, enable them to communicate quite effectively before they are actually able to say the words. Unfortunately most parents stop right there, never realizing their baby's potential for learning other gestures--gestures that make it possible for parents to interact with their child in ways that would otherwise have been impossible until their baby could talk. Linda Acredolo and Susan Goodwyn have spent more than a decade researching and studying the effects of Baby Signs on infant communication, and the results have been overwhelmingly positive. Not only do parents gain a much greater understanding of their children and their needs, but babies also develop skills that actually enrich their comprehension of language. In "Baby Signs: How to Talk with Your Baby Before Your Baby Can Talk, Acredolo and Goodwyn provide parents with a fun and simple step-by-stepprogram for teaching children Baby Signs at home. This one-of-a-kind book includes easy-to-follow illustrated signs and photos, popular nursery rhymes with signs, parents' questions answered, and Baby Sign stories.

Participation in human inquiry

Author: Peter Reason

Publisher: Sage Publications Ltd

ISBN: 9780803988316

Category: Language Arts & Disciplines

Page: 220

View: 7923

This book explores research as a collaborative process - researching with and for people, rather than on people. In particular, it addresses the central questions: What is the nature of participation? How can participative relationships and processes be established and sustained in human inquiry? In the first part of the book Peter Reason outlines a theoretical foundation for understanding participation and undertaking participative research. He discusses the emergence of a world-view that is holistic, pluralist and egalitarian and sees human beings as co-creating their realities through participation. He also stresses the urgency and importance of discovering ways of living in more collaborative relationships with each other and with the wider ecology, with participative approaches to inquiry being one part of this quest. The second section presents examples of participative research in action. The contributors give accounts of their processes of research - the aims of the inquiries, the nature of the collaborations that took place, and the particular issues and learning involved. Examples include: an evaluation of a prenatal programme by the mothers themselves; an exploration by health visitors of their own professional practice; and a collaborative inquiry into a woman-centred staff development programme in a dominantly masculinist institution. Addressing both theory and practice, Participation in Human Inquiry is an indispensable sourcebook for students and professionals undertaking research in such fields as psychology, sociology, management and education. It will be of particular interest to practitioners of cooperative inquiry, participatory action research, action inquiry and all forms of collaborative action research.
