Growth and Development

by Dilip K Mukherjee, MKC Nair

The appropriate techniques of measurement of growth and development of children are therefore of utmost importance to assess growth. It is heartening to come to know that a thoroughly revised and much enlarged edition of the book on ‘Growth and Development’ under the aegis of the Institute of Growth and Development is going to be released soon. A publication with the same title had been made some years ago by the Indian Academy of Pediatrics, but the need for bringing out an edition on the lines of forthcoming one was being keenly felt for sometime past in view of the plethora of new ideas and developments occurring everywhere during the last ten years. This book fulfils all the requisites for postgraduate students to keep abreast of the recent knowledge and know-how about the growth and development of children. Several likeminded researchers and teachers in this field across the country and abroad have come up recently with the establishment of ‘The Institute of Growth and Development’ to cater guidelines and norms for assessment of the children’s growth and development not only in our country but also in neighboring countries. The book will be immensely useful for the students and the researchers of growth and development of children for whom it is basically meant.
