During this time the infant will sleep much of the time and will grow quite fast. They will try to lift their heads and start to kick their legs and wave arms. They will begin to hold objects when they are placed in the hand for example a rattle, they will also put them into their mouths. The grasp reflex will lessen as hand and eye coordination begins to develop. Become more alert when awake and learn to roll from side to back.
They may also start to use words and actions in mock of other people. Playing with children is still exceedingly important at this stage and some children embark on to make close friendships. Also at this time, children start to play with members of the same gender, which may link to their understanding of masculinity and femininity roles. D3) Describe ONE (1) suitable method of observing and recording the social development of children aged 5 years A suitable method of observing would be using a checklist. This method needs a little preparation so a prepared checklist would be necessary.
Assignment 023 Understand Child and Young Person Development A1. Below is a table that shows the sequence and rate of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years. Physical development | Intellectual and cognitive development | Communication development | Social, emotional and behavioural development | Moral development | 0 – 3 months Baby begins life in reflex mode. Reflex actions such as suckling, rooting enable baby’s survival. | Baby may recognise smell and sound of mother, baby stops crying when it hears a familiar voice.
Shortly after they will start to roll, sit up without any adults or objects supporting them. They will be able to hold toys for longer and put objects in their mouths, this is how they explore the objects. Before babies start to crawl they usually follow the same pattern and move backwards before being able to move forward. Not all babies will crawl some will bum shuffle or bare walk. Babies at around this mile stone will also be able to point to objects and deliberately throw objects.
1.1 Describe the expected pattern of children a young people’s development from birth to 19 years, to include: Physical development Communication and intellectual development Social, emotional and behavioural development The sequence of children’s development at 0 to 3 months. Physical development at 0 to 3 months. At 0 to 3 months, It is the norm for a baby to sleep most of the time and grow fast, whilst awake he/she can open and shut their hands and will start to kick their legs with movements gradually becoming smoother. They can wave their arms around and will eventually begin to hold objects when placed in their hand e.g. an appropriate size/shaped rattle.
Can distinguish the volume and pitch of different sound. By 6 months of age, baby will be able to recognize faces and imitate facial expressions. At 1-year-old, she has an understanding of object permanence and experiments regularly with objects to see how they work. By 2 years of age, child’s language development is rapidly increasing, and he can hold short conversations with adults. By the age of five child should be able to draw recognizable pictures and can tell you her (his ) name,
The baby will grasp objects or a finger in which they will put in the palm of their hands. The way babies communicate and by showing their scared is they will straighten their legs and throw their arms around. By 6 months they will be able to pass objects from hand to hand, by 9-10 months they are able to crawl. | Learn that when they cry someone will come to see them. From about 9 to 12 month’s babies begin to follow the gaze or pointing gesture of an adult.
Ct230 Rate and Sequence, birth – 19 years. Social and emotional behaviour – From birth a baby can respond to touch and sound, they will recognise a parent or carers voice. At just a few months old they will smile and engage with their carer. At four months they will interact vocally by ‘Babbling’ or ‘Cooing’. Depending on their personality and time spent with other children, a 6 month old infant will become more interested in social interaction; some may experience a fear of strangers and become distressed when separated from a parent of carer.
Communication and intellectual development As babies, children communicate through crying and quietening with increasing sophistication. Before they are a year old, infants will generally attempt to say simple words. By the time they are between one and two years old they will use around 30 to 40 words and by three years old they will be able to use full, complex sentences. When a child starts school aged six, they will develop their social skills through
Infancy (Birth – 2 Years) During the first two years of life, many dramatic developmental changes occur (McDevitt, T. M., & Ormrod, J. E. 2004). Each baby is unique and develops at his or her own rate. At infancy the child is completely dependent on others. Features of early care such as affectionate, individualized, and responsive attention to infants; positive relationships with parents and other family members; and provision of a safe and interesting environment – help get infants off to a good start. Early Childhood (2-6 Years) Early childhood is a period of incredible creativity, fantasy, wonder, and play (McDevitt, T. M., & Ormrod, J. E. 2004).
