The rate of development is the speed of which a child develops but this can also vary a great deal in each child. For example one child may start walking unaided before their first birthday but another child may not start walking unaided until after their first birthday. It’s important to know the difference between the sequence and rate of development as it helps to meet the children’s individual needs. It helps you recognise if any children have special educational needs and helps you plan to make sure they are getting the help and support they may need.
For instance, one developmental milestone is learning to walk. Most children learn this skill or developmental milestone between the ages of 9 and 15 months. Milestones develop in a sequential fashion. This means that a child will need to develop some skills before he or she can develop new skills. For example, children must first learn to crawl and to pull up to a standing position before they are able to walk.
The rate of development is how quickly they do it such as one child maybe walking at 10 months but another not. With every child been an individual they all do thing at different speeds but this doesn’t mean a child is behind as they may progress in other areas faster. 22.2.1 Personal factors that may influence children and young people’s development these factors are health status, disability, sensory impairment and learning difficulties. Health status If a mother smokes, takes drugs, becomes ill or suffers from anxiety or stress while pregnant this can sometime cause premature birth and health problems for babies such as low birth weight, undeveloped organs and problems with sight and hearing also these are all problem that can delay a child development. Some children are born with disorders that affect development such as blood disease.
Elizabeth O’Dell Cypcore 3.1 t1 Student number: 235814 Stages of development 0-19 Sequence of development means in what order children and young people develop. The sequence of development in measured in stages, this is called mile stones; every child must reach the completed stage to be able to move on to the next. This is because of many reasons but to give just one example is that a new born needs to be able to develop there neck and back muscles to gain balance to be able to move on to crawling. The rate of development is how fast it takes to reach each mile stone. There are set guidelines on how fast or slow children should develop, but every individual is different so not everyone will develop at this set rate.
CYP 3.1 1.1 – Children’s development is continuous and can be measured in a number of different ways. Although all children develop at different rates, and in different ways, the sequence in which they develop will roughly be the same as they need to have developed one skill, e.g. walking, before they can move on and develop further skills, such as running and jumping. Development is often referred to as on a timeline and is broken down into ages. As development is more rapid in early years, the first few milestones start by being quite close together, before becoming further apart as a baby becomes a child then a young adult.
Developing a General Outcome Measure of Growth in Movement for Infants and toddlers is an important outcome in early childhood, is necessary for physical, cognitive, and social-emotional development. The development of an experimental measure for assessing growth in movement in children ages birth to 3 years is described. Based on general outcome measurement (GOM) procedures , the measure was intended for the identification of children having difficulty acquiring movement skills and the evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions for these children. Results from its use with a sample of 29 infants and toddlers demonstrated the feasibility of the measure. The 6-minute GOM was found to be reliable in terms of inter-observer agreement and odd-even and alternate forms indices.
Or a child will learn to walk before they can run. Rate of development refers to the speed at which the child’s development takes to achieve the various milestones. For example some babies may be able
Task 1. There are 4 different development types in which each individual experiences before they reach adulthood; physical development, intellectual development, language development and social and emotional development. Physical development begins before an individual is even born but the development really begins as soon as they are born. By 6 months of age an infant can usually turn their heads to the sounds of familiar words and voices and smile, they will also be able to hold and shake objects such as a rattle when they are introduced to play objects. By age 1 they will have developed more detail in what they can see so will be able to tell the difference between given food and given a play toy.
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. Here is the typical sequence and rate of development for children that would normally be expected. Physical Development 0-1 years old: The first year of a baby’s life is the most important for brain development and the impact that it will have on the children and their learning throughout their lives. During the first month of their lives, a baby will hold its head and in time they will bear weight and begin to roll over. By 6-9 months, the baby is able to sit unsupported and will then begin to pull themselves up into a standing position.
Unit 201 – Child and young person development Outcome 1) Know the main stages of child and young person development 1.1 Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years. a) Physical development Between birth and 6 months an infant begins to develop a rhythm of feeding, sleeping and eliminating which may correspond with the primary care givers sleeping patterns. The infant will also gain control of eye movement and develop basic motor control so they will be able to balance their head, roll over, pull self to sitting and may briefly sit alone. This will help normal muscle development as the infant grows rapidly, doubling their birth weight. By 12 months the infant will be able to crawl and may be beginning to walk, they will use large objects, furniture and people to pull themselves to standing.
