What is normal social development from birth to year 3? How do today's societal problems affect normal social development in the young child? What can be done to help a young child who is born socially disadvantaged? With today's problems, it is a growing concern not just to educators, but to all who participate in today's society. It was the author's intention to describe the steps of normal social development. It was also the author's intention to describe how societal/parental problems may interrupt the young child's social development, and how once disrupted, what possible educational remediation techniques are effective.
