1.3.1 Explain how to monitor children and young people’s development using different methods: When children and young people’s development is monitored and assessed, it enables practitioners and professionals to notice when they are not progressing as expected. Therefore, if necessary checks can be made to see why children are not developing as expected. If we intervene in early years, they will be able to get appropriate support they need and their development is promoted. There are several methods of monitoring children’s development. Observations play a very important part in assessing the children’s development.
Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people birth – 19 years. 2. Understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice. 3. Understand how to monitor children and young people’s development and interventions that should take place if this is not following expected pattern 4.
Unit 6 Understand child and young person’s development. 09.09.13 Review A child's development usually follows a known and predictable course. The acquisition of certain skills and abilities is often used to gauge such development. Children will reach milestones at certain ages throughout their development, if a child does not seem to be achieving these areas of development this may be a concern and an area that needs special attention. From birth to 19 years a child should achieve a number of significant development areas, these are determined by a sequence of development and the rate of development.
Each area supports another rather than just one at a time. It is important to look at a child’s growth and development holistically as there are many factors that will affect the way the child’s brain develops from birth. This is known as brain wiring. The stages of development as a child grows are examples of the ‘normal’ milestones that children reach at a certain age. It is important to understand and remember that although children usually develop in the same sequence, the rate of their development can vary from child to child and will vary with regards to each child’s abilities, gender, race and needs.
1. Understand the pattern of development that would normally be expected for children and young people from birth-19years. 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development that would normally be expected in children and young people from birth-19 years. 1.2 Analyse the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the distinction is important. 1.3 Analyse the reasons why children and young people’s development may not follow the pattern normally expected 2 Understand the factors that impact on children and young people’s development 2.1 Analyse how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors 2.2 Analyse how children and young people development is influenced by a range of external factors.
Task 201-3A This task will cover criteria within both Unit 004 and unit 006. You will complete the table below giving three examples of transitions that affect most children and young people and three examples of transitions that affect some children and young people. With all examples you will show how the transitions may affect their behaviour and development during this period. | |Transition experienced by MOST |Examples of possible effect on children and young people’s behaviour and development | | |children and young people | | |1 |Starting Secondary School |During the transition from primary to secondary school children can suffer from a lack of | | | |academic continuity, anxiety about being separated from friends in a new school, low self | | | |confidence and can experience a drop in academic progress.

Monitoring of children and young people’s development is mainly carried out by observations which are methods of gathering information about the behaviour and stage of development of a particular child. There are various methods which can be used to carry out observations of development. Some are very basic or cover a single situation or activity whereas others take into account a range of factors or involve observing a child regularly over a period of time to build up a picture of their stage of development. Some simple methods which can be used to monitor all the children in a setting include: • Checklist – this is a list of “milestones” that a child should reach at a particular stage of development. They can be compared against the list or checked off as they achieve each milestone or are observed to have attained it.
Understand Child and Young Person Development 1.1 EXPLAIN THE SEQUENCE AND RATE OF EACH ASPECT OF DEVELOPMENT OF CHILD FROM BIRTH TO 18 YEARS INTRODUCTION:- Child development refers to the biological and psychological and emotional changes that occur in human beings between birth and the end of adolescence, as the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy. Because these developmental changes may be strongly influenced by genetic factors and events during prenatal life, genetics and prenatal development are usually included as part of the study of child development. Related terms include developmental psychology, referring to development throughout the lifespan, and pediatrics, the branch of medicine relating to the care of children. Developmental change may occur as a result of genetically-controlled processes known as maturation, or as a result of environmental factors and learning, but most commonly involves an interaction between the two. It may also occur as a result of human nature and our ability to learn from our environment.
PSY 375 Week 1 DQs 1 , 2 PSY 375 Week 2 Individual Assignment Infancy and Early Childhood Development Individual Assignment Infancy and Early Childhood Development Paper • Prepare a 1,050- to 1,400-word paper in which you explore development during infancy and early childhood. Include the following: • Explain how families affect the development of infants and young children. • Evaluate different parenting styles and their influence on development during infancy and early childhood. Include which parenting style you feel is most effective and why. • Discuss early childhood education and its influence on cognitive development.
022 Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years. Aspects of a child and young person’s development include: • Physical development – includes gross motor skills (using large muscle areas such as arms and legs), and fine motor skills (precise use of muscles such as hands and fingers). • Intellectual/communication – includes learning the skills of understanding and communicating with others. • Social and Emotional – includes the development of a child’s identity, the development of relationships and learning the skills of living in society. Development is usually referred to on a timeline and is broken down into ages.
