Physical development is usually very rapid early on in the child’s development. Within weeks of being born a baby will start to smile and respond to sounds and environments around them. By 6 months as their muscles begin to develop they will reach for and hold objects which they will also put into their mouths. By one year old they are beginning to crawl or shuffle, pulling or pushing on furniture to stand and then cruise using furniture or adult for support. Sitting has progressed to unaided and they are rolling from their front to their back.
TDA 2.1 Child and young person development Task 1 Physical Development Birth to one year Newborn babies can turn their heads to look for food, and once found they are able to suck and swallow. If you hold a baby upright with their feet on your lap or a surface of some kind they will make stepping movements. They will also stretch out their arms when they want to be picked up. As they grow, a baby’s determination to master movement, balance, and the fine-motor skills is very high. 1-3 Years By their first birthday, most babies have learnt the basics of movement and being mobile by either sitting, rolling, shuffling or crawling around.
Piaget's Theory According to Piaget, children in the earliest stages of life, from birth to 2 years, exist in a sensory-motor stage, where they learn to move and operate their bodies as well as begin to understand simple symbols. In this early stage, children are curious about their environment and begin to learn how to interpret it in sensible ways. The next stage is called preoperational thought and lasts from the ages of 2 until 7. In this stage, children develop stable concepts, mental reasoning and imagination. What is distinct and important about Piaget's views is that he considered imagination and play to be crucial to enable every child to develop his own sense of self and to foster healthy learning habits.
Teaching Assistant Level 3 Assignment 1 – L/601/1693 Understanding How Children and Young People Develop Student Name:- Terri Hall Student Number:- TEHAL2155 Question 1.1: Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19years: There are six aspects of human development. These aspects are social, physical, intellectual, language, emotional and intellect. Children’s development is continuous and can be measured in a number of different ways. All stages of development happen over time but at different rates. Physical development:- This aspect of development usually progresses very quickly in a child’s life.
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.
UNIT 201 – CHILD AND YOUNG PERSON DEVELOPMENT Please write out each question in full including the reference numbers. 1) Complete the attached chart showing different stages of development against different ages. Ref 1.1 (x-ref 203 3.1) This has been completed as a class activity where different stages of a child’s development were placed against the relevant age group e.g. A child aged between 12-16 would be experiencing physical and emotional changes. From birth through to 19 years children continually grow, develop, and learn.
The sequence of development is an order of milestones that children and young people meet and accomplish. Developments in social and emotional, physical, intellectual, language and communication begins from birth and continues into adolescents and it’s within these areas that a sequence is formed, for example a child will learn how to crawl before they can walk or can point before they learn to speak a sentence. A child will usually progress forward from one milestone to the next, normally one accomplishment has a bearing on the next milestone and if a child or young person has difficulty meeting a milestone it can mean they could have delays in other areas as well, and if a child or young person meets a milestone early then they may be great at reaching the next milestone early also. The sequence of development cannot be confused with the rate of development as every child will grow and progress at different rates. A child can accomplish milestones quicker in one area such as mathematics but may take more time to accomplish a physical milestone like running or fine motor skills.
1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth to 19 years Development of children overlaps in different areas with many skills that are varied and make each child unique as they develop in their own way. We must look at development as a wider picture which include Physical, communication and language, intellectual/ cognitive, social, emotional and behavioural and moral. Physical development a child develops many skills naturally as they grow and must be left to do this in a variety of ways, some of this happens automatically without realisation and it is important that a child has the opportunity to do so with any support needed. 0-1 year: as soon as a baby has ben born within a few weeks a baby will start to react to sounds and environments around them often with a smile eventually following movement and sound with their eyes until they can move their head to follow. By 6 months as they become stronger and muscles develop they will reach for and hold objects as well as putting fists, and objects into their mouths.
Using a container and repeatedly putting the lid on and off until the individual finds the best way for the shapes to be able to fit together. | Pre-operational | 2 years to 6/7 years old | The children’s’ mind is growing and developing at a fast rate at these ages. The same time the children’s are having the cognitive and thinking part of their abilities
1.1a Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years to include physical development: Physical development of children and young people can be often assumed that it will come automatically as they grow and mature. Some children grow and mature at different paste and this sometimes may cause some to behave differently. 0-3years This is a rapid development period where they have very little control of their movements. This is hinge on series of reflex which is needed to survive. In the first year they steadily starting to more control over their body such as rolling and crawling.
