Additional Book Details

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Here is a practical look at the roles of adults in children’s lives outside of the classroom examined through the experiences of real people in a wide variety of settings and with a diversity of needs and insights. Working with School-Age Children helps to define the role of professional child and youth workers in the lives of children and families. The book builds on a foundation of child development theory and provides a historical overview of the subject and an overview of school-age care in other parts of the world to help ground the work done by the people represented in the book.   The book describes the issues children face in today’s world and the attributes and skills critical for people who work with school-age children. Included are strategies for adult involvement, healthy and productive activities, and guidelines for developing and sustaining afterschool programs.
