By the age of 3 a child will be using negatives and plurals in their speech and vocabulary will increase rapidly. Social, emotional and behavioural development - The first relationships that very young children build are with their parents/carers. At this stage young children will express frustration by throwing tantrums, and will want to start doing things for themselves. 3-7 years At this stage children will be refining their physical movements and being more confident with them. More control is developed over
Also during this period, the child will make great strides in language and social skills (Lockman, 2009, p.6). The text suggests that there are three major periods of a baby’s development through the first two years of life (Brooks, 2010, p. 211). During the development of self-period, infants’ visual, sensory and motor responses emerge and so it is important for new parents to ensure their baby is stimulated with things such as mobiles or even just playing with their newborn. Babies, even newborn babies, like being around people and engaging with people (Brooks, 2010, p. 215). Allowing for the newborn to have many interactions with both their parents and other newborns will start the development of their social and emotional skills.
E1- Describe the development of children in a selected age range and in 2 areas of development. Physical Development: Physical development is important for 3 reasons Allows new learning to take place Allows further development-build on skills already perfected Enhances confidence/self esteem 0-6 months Babies learn how to control their muscles and movements. Baby’s development of fine motor skills can be watches hands and plays with fingers, clasps and unclasps hands and can hold a rattle for a moment. Its development of gross motor skills are, lifts head and chest up and waves arms and brings hands together over body. By one month, a baby can turns its head from side to side when lying on the back or belly, and can move its hands and arms.
Although all children will develop at different rates and in different ways, the sequence in which they develop will be roughly the same as they need to have developed one skill, for example walking, before they move on to develop another such as running and jumping. Development is often referred to on a timeline and is broken down in ages. As development is more rapid in early years the milestones start by being quite close together before becoming further apart as baby becomes a child and then a young adult. The aspects of development that children are measured on are physical, language, social and emotional, and intellect. From birth through to adulthood children continually grow, develop, and learn.
Some children’s rate of development is a lot faster then others, for example some babies learn to walk at 10 months while others don’t start walking until they are over a year old. It is important to know the difference because when working with children you can observe firstly the sequence of their development to see if they are developing how they should be I.E supporting their head and then learning to sit up and also to be able to plan effectively for the child you are working with. Also it is important to know the difference between sequence and rate of development because you need to be able to observe what rate they are developing at to see if they developing as they should be and if they need and extra support in some areas such as communication for example. 2.1) Explain how children and young peoples development is influenced by a range of personal factors A child’s development may be different to the development of a child that is the same age as them. This could be down to such factors as their health, family up bringing or environment.
Week 2 Assignment: The First Three Years Of Development A child’s brain learns a lot in the first three years of life including learning the environment around him or her and how to walk and talk (Broderick & Blewitt, 2015). Parenting styles affect the way a child grows including the income levels of the parents (Lugo-Gil & Tamis-LeMonda, 2008). The Zero to Three movement was developed to explain that the first three years in a child’s life are the most important to development (Zero to Three, 2012). This paper will be discussing the zero to three myth, how the myth can be interpreted, and how a child’s first three years impact changes over the lifespan. Myth of The First Three Years The myth of the first three years can be explained by the emphasis of the first three years of a child’s life as being the most important to cognitive development.
Physical Development: From birth a baby will start its development journey. At first a baby will lay on their back, then start lifting their head and kicking and will become fascinated by their own fingers and hand movements. By six months old, a baby can grasp objects, transfer them from hand to hand and as their head control is much improved, it becomes inevitable that with any object held, an attempt to put it in their mouth will be made. Mobility starts around the 9 month stage, starting off as rolling then progressing to shuffling, crawling, then finally attempts at walking unaided at 12 months. Every child is different and some children can go from shuffling to walking attempts, missing a big milestone such as crawling.
-Sensory Motor Stage (Birth to 2 years): During this stage senses, reflexes, and motor abilities develop very fast. Children exorcise these motor skills by playing with toys, trial and error, and repetition to receive the same results. -Pre operational Stage (Ages 2 to 7 years): At this stage a child is not able to think logically yet. They are not yet able to see things from another point of view, only their own. This results in the phase where a child is very egocentric.
3: Understand the potiential effects of transistions on children and young people. 3.1: Identify transistions expeirenced by most children and young people I feel that a main transisition expieirenced by most children is Starting school as a child grows up, their intellectial ability as well as their communication will also develop. They will be able to become more socialable and learn through the diffrent techques used in the school such as play time where thair able to learn practically and then through the currriculam. I feel that that starting school is a big transistion due to being able to expierence a certain amount of independance. Another big transistion that most children or young person will expieirence is a birth of a sibling the reason why i believe this is a transistion is because they are adapting to a new situation which could either cause happiness or a eliment of jelousy.
During this stage children reach a milestone whereby they have control of their body and this in turn produces feelings of accomplishment and capabilities. Phallic stage (3 to 6 years). During this stage children gain specific emotions of jealousy and feelings of difference. Latent stage (6 years to puberty). During this time children tend to develop interests in hobbies and building relationships.
