Child Development Media, Inc. (CDM) is currently the world’s largest source of commercially available videos, books, manuals, and curricula on child development and related topics. With over 1250 titles, CDM’s collection of resources consists of high-quality, often unique materials on early intervention/early education, child and adolescent development, special needs, and parent education.
These materials have been selected for virtually every category of professional working with children: teachers, trainers, administrators, parent-educators, early-childhood specialists, clinicians, and many others. Many of the titles are also ideal for parents and caregivers. All of the materials are described at length and are available for purchase on our website.
These resources are the outcome of the superb work with children and families that is being done throughout our country and the world. The materials listed are from the United States, Canada, England, Hungary, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Sweden.
Many of the titles produced in this country have been developed by federal, state, and locally-funded projects. Many other titles are the work of world-renowned experts, and are considered classics in the field. All have been selected because they document history and theory, current thinking, progressive ideas, and relationship-based services to children and families.
In addition to the core business of publishing, distributing, marketing, and selling its materials, CDM conducts a continuing education program, publishes a newsletter, and hosts internationally-attended training events and conferences such as the Signs of Autism in Infants: Recognition and Early Intervention (UCLA, June 2006), and Signs of Autism in Infants: Changing Outcomes Through Early Identification and Intervention (October 2008) and the Pediatric Psychological Trauma in Infants and Young Children from Illness, Injury and Medical Intervention (February 2010).
