Follow this to the website where there is information on brain development and the effects of maltreatment on it as well as information about bonding/attachment and the influence of maltreatment on those processes

Has information on parenting that might supplement textbook and on play that might be good resource to go with the play/toys assignment.

Added 07/15/2009
Has multiple links to parenting information and has a link to developmental psychology that is worth exploring for more content/activities.

Not sure yet how useful. Worth coming back to later.

Street Children - Prevalence, Abuse & Exploitation

Added 07/15/2009
This seems like a great opportunity for doing some cross-country comparison and/or for having them think about how all aspects of development can be affected for a particular age group or what is likely to be most affected for a particular age group. Maybe ask them to write or talk in groups in class about what they think might be most affected, then have them do some browsing & draw some conclusions about whether they were correct? Would help to have a research-based article for them to read or draw on as well. May already exist at the site, but I'd prefer a very recent article considering current US economic issues and jobless rate increases.
