Human Motor Development: A lifespan approach, 9e

The new edition of this classic text has been streamlined and thoroughly updated, but it still reflects the authors’ philosophy that motor development is an interactive process that continues across the lifespan. Human motor development is strongly influenced by the cognitive, social-emotional, and physical changes that take place as an individual ages, and this book examines these interactions while maintaining its focus on the movement aspects of human development.

In this ninth edition, the authors have expanded coverage of motor development of adults and older adults while continuing to emphasize the all-important child and adolescent time periods. They have also incorporated current research throughout to support key discussions.
