Summary This book provides both a review of the literature and a theoretical framework for understanding the development of visual attention from infancy through early childhood. The authors discuss the development of selective and state-related aspects of attention in infants and young children, as well as the emergence of higher-level controls on attention. They also explore individual differences in attention and consider the possible origins of childhood deficits in attention. The reviews of research and the theoretical discussion will be invaluable to developmental, cognitive, and clinical psychologists, psychiatrists, and professionals involved in early education, and this work can be a useful text for advanced undergraduate and graduate students in education and psychology.
