CYP Core 3.1: Understand child and young person development 1. Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth – 19 years 2. Explain the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the difference is important Introduction: Children do not develop at the same rate as each other. Every child has a different rate of development. It is important to recognise the difference so you can identify where children need help or may be at risk of having SEN. Information and sources we receive are only guidelines. These help us to monitor what children can and cant do at certain stages in their lives, it will also help us to plan effectively to ensure they get the attention they need, in the areas in which they find challenging. Maturation is the genetically programmed series of changes leading to maturity. These changes occur in the same sequence in everybody, but there are great individual differences, for example: - size, weight, height are linked to Ossification which helps you develop your fine motor skills. Cephalocaudal development is the head to toe sequence; babies first have to have neck control before they can sit with support, then on to pulling themselves in to the standing position, then crawl and then to walk, they follow the pattern so this happens if they didn’t then they would not be able to do this. Proximodistal development is the development from the midline to outwards, babies first have to move their arm from their shoulder to reach out, then they use their palmer grasp to their pincer grip they then refine their pincer grip. Areas of development: listed below are the main areas of development They are:- • Physical development • Communication development • Intellectual / cognitive development • Social, emotional and behavioural development • Moral Physical development
