Unit 331 understand child and young person development. 1.1 Sequence and rate of development is all dependant on the individual child/young person, their physical, communication, intellectual and social development is crucial to understand in order to help them. 0 to 3 years old babies are new to this atmosphere they use small muscle movements such as reflexes, sucking, smiling and raising their hands. By 5 months they begin to roll over and shuffle, at 8 months they pull and push on toys/furniture/anything and everything to stand and then glide using the same method of transport. At this stage they are now becoming more curious and want to play with toys, teeth are beginning to sprout and they are now eating solids.
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.
This development in children includes both emotional and social development. From infants to adults, children are constantly adapting and learning about the environment and the world surrounding them (Maggi & Irwin, 2008). As a result, they begin to understand how to co-exist with others and the world. It is very early on when the child develops a certain personality depending on the type of upbringing and environment provided. Children do develop differently depending on their genetic makeup and environment, parents and guardians can play a huge role to ensure that the child grows up to be an emotionally mature individual.
The brain grows very rapidly during the first several years of life. During this time, your child is learning all sorts of new skills. Because children usually acquire developmental milestones or skills during a specific time frame or "window", we can predict when most children will learn different skills. Children develop skills in five main areas of development: 1. Cognitive Development This is the child's ability to learn and solve problems.
In the developing field of Early Years, it is becoming more and more important for practitioners to have an awareness of the many topics that impact on the provision available to young children. Existing and new initiatives being discussed and reflected upon by the evaluation of article reports and how these topics may impact upon my own practice by using reflection. Module 4FD028. Learning Outcome 1 Key concepts and approaches in Early Years provision and the requirement for quality provision and practice for children. Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory.
During this year most children will be affectionate towards their family, friends and carers and they also want to play with children but mostly pretend play. They are eager to help and please primary carers and other familiar adults. D2) Describe the expected stage of social development for children aged 5 years Most children at this age feel confident and can begin to articulate themselves a lot more in terms of their achievements, e.g. ‘I’m star of the week’ or ‘watch me climb this’. They may also start to use words and actions in mock of other people.
Introduction A toy/game that is interactive helps the child develop in many different parts of his body and mind. We will learn about the types of play for an early childhood aged kid. I will tell you about the game and how it is used. In addition, how the game helps with the child’s development. Type of Play Play is very important in the child’s growth and development (Myers 2012).
Life Span Development The Childhood Years (ROUGH DRAFT) Erica The childhood years encompass the years of birth to preadolescence, zero to twelve years, respectively. There are major milestones that a child is experiencing during these early stages of life, thus making these the most important and formative years of a person’s life; from forming secure and healthy attachment during the infant years, which extends into the adult years, to developing their autonomy and independence in their toddler years. What children learn in these childhood years will determine the type of adult they will grow to be. This discussion will focus on the period between three to twelve years old. The preschool years, age three to five years, are the next step after toddlerhood.
Unit 022 Outcome 1 AC 2 Explain the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the difference is important. In terms of development some aspects follow a definite sequence especially when it comes to physical development. For example a baby needs to know how to lift their head before they sit up,toddlers need to learn to walk before they can run and in terms of communication they will need to recognise words before they can talk. Although these sequences of development are typical in all children,the speed and rate at which they can develop can change in individual children. Some babies may sit unsupported at 7 months but some can take a bit longer.
Alexis McCormick Mrs. Linda Long English 102 July 12, 2013 Parental Influences on Family Values Addressing the challenges surrounding young people today has become hot topics among families. As the generations continue to age, family values start to become controversial. The building of values and the development of one’s character revolves around one’s environment. Within the family environment the way children learn values have been noted to have been passed from generation to generation. As these generations age, society changes as well as the family values.
