Behaviour of infants/toddlers at 'falling-off' places : an ecological analysis

thesis
posted on 2006-01-01, 00:00 authored by Merrilyn. Hooley
Toddlers were observed as they freely explored different 'falling-off' places on a visual cliff. Toddlers played extensively with wet / non-rigid surfaces (e.g. water) and briefly explored dry / rigid surfaces. Edges were crossed intentionally and unintentionally, either as an extension or consequence of edge engagement, by a sub-group of toddlers. The findings have implications for drowning / injury prevention.
