This new volume outlines methods of monitoring growth and weight gain, an essential clinical service. The alternative methods described here will be of particular use to workers in Third World countries where the cost of scales as well as illiteracy and cultural differences make weight-plotting especially difficult. Readers will find outlines of such innovative methods as the use of arm growth tape, simplified techniques of weight plotting, and helpful algorithms for decision-making. Among the book's appendices is a point system for comparative evaluation of weighing scales. Many illustrations help clarify the material presented in the text, making this book valuable in the classroom as well as in the field.

"This work, written by two individuals who have done so much for children in the developing world, nicely summarizes guidelines for the selection of methods and training techniques for growth monitoring. The book is an ideal resource for students and health workers in both developing and highly-industrialized countries. It can be recommended highly to all." --Journal of Nutritional Education
