Problems in Infancy


Problems in Infancy

Every developmental stage during childhood carries its own unique importance. However, it can be the problems encountered earliest in life that have a knock-on effect for the rest of our development. In turn, developmental or behavioural issues during infancy must be given complete focus and priority. Child psychologists are required to work with and address a comprehensive range of problems associated with early-childhood. Whether it’s identifying the problem, isolating the cause or putting the required corrective measures in place, child psychology is a profession of responsibility and reward in equally extreme measures.

Problems in Infancy

Discover how child psychologists contribute to strong and health childhood development, by addressing common problems during infancy. Explore a series of typical issues and challenges in infancy, including sleep problems, settling and night-waking issues, night terrors, sleepwalking and the treatment of night-time fears in general. Study protective factors and family resources, learning and communication difficulties, autism and pervasive developmental disorders, the family-based approach to problem-management and more.
