Reviews

"The authors do a good job in meeting their goal of blending science with a call to action for advocacy and future work in this area. It could serve as a springboard for collaborative action by pediatric and community leaders. We recommend Thinking Developmentally to anyone who wants to learn about the importance of development and take action to improve the health of the next generation." -The Journal of Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics

"Thinking Developmentally is a must-read primer for anyone caring for or about children. I learned so much from reading this book. Drs Garner and Saul synthesize the latest neuroscience and developmental research and translate it into clear and practical advice. We are in a moment of national awakening to the lifelong effects of childhood adversity. Thinking Developmentally offers an evidence-based road map for building a healthier future for the next generation."
