A child’s development will usually follow the same pattern, but the age at which they will reach ‘milestones’ in their development will vary depending on a variety of personal and external factors. All children will develop at different rates, but the sequence of development will be roughly the same. A child has to master a basic skill before they can move on to the next stage, such as rolling over leading to crawling, then to pulling themselves up onto furniture before they can master walking. Teaching practices aimed at child development should seek to simultaneously address each of the developmental areas. To develop to their fullest potential, children need a huge amount of support and guidance from others in their lives; failure to meet all of the needs of a baby or child can have serious consequences on his or her development.
UNIT 201 Child and young person development Outcome 1 Know the main stages of child and young persons development 1.1 Describe the expected patterns of children and young persons development from birth to 19 years, to include. From birth, a child will start to grow and learn. Through nurture and stimulation they will learn movements, speech and language, and what is right and wrong. Through nurseries and schools they will learn social skills. Life skills will teach them about behaviour and emotional development.
From birth to 19 years, children grow continually. The sequence in which all children and young people follow will be similar as they will have to develop one skill to move onto the next, however the rate of development will vary. The development can be measured through social and emotional, physical, intellectual, and language milestones to ensure that each individual child is developing on target. Social and emotional development covers aspects of relationships to self-confidence. To ensure a child’s social development is on target, praise, guidance, support and encouragement are key when helping them interact with others around them.
1. Understand the pattern of development that would normally be expected for children and young people from birth-19years. 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development that would normally be expected in children and young people from birth-19 years. 1.2 Analyse the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the distinction is important. 1.3 Analyse the reasons why children and young people’s development may not follow the pattern normally expected 2 Understand the factors that impact on children and young people’s development 2.1 Analyse how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors 2.2 Analyse how children and young people development is influenced by a range of external factors.
CORE 3.1 Understand Child and Young Person Development CYP Core 3.1.1 - Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth - 19 years. 1. Explain the sequence and the rate of each aspect of development from birth to 19 years The sequence of child development means the expected development of a child from birth to 19 years. Child development refers to the biological and psychological and emotional changes that occur within this time. As the individual progresses from dependency to increasing autonomy.
Denver Development Assessment Project Age Group: Toddlers (1-3yrs) Developmental milestones are things most children can do by a certain age. Children reach milestones in how they play, learn, speak, behave, and move (like jumping, running, or balancing). Children develop at their own pace, so it's impossible to tell exactly when a child will learn a given skill. However, the developmental milestones give a general idea of the changes to expect as a child gets older. The toddler period covers two year's in the child's life from about one to three years of age.
Every child will be individual and have different experiences so far with different coping strategies. Children will also feel more supported if they are going to be with people that they know. 7-12 year olds. Have a much better idea of time scales and memories of transitions before. They may also imagine positive and negative things about the changes occurring.
NCFE Level 3 Supporting Teaching & Learning in Schools Assignment 1 Unit 1: Child and Young Person Development Task 1: Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19 years. Sequential development and the rate of development are different but they tend to work with one another; sequential development states that a child must finish one area of development before moving on to another, the rate of development refers to the pace at which a child develops. Lev Vygotsky (1896-1934) proposed that development is the gaining of skills in all aspects of a person’s life; he saw child development as consisting of passing through a series of periods of stable development. These periods and different stages of stable development are referred to as the rate of development; each category falls into a group of years such as stage 1 being infancy which is 0-3 years, stage 2 being pre-school/school which is age is 3-7 years, stage 3 being school age which is 7-12 years and stage 4 being puberty which is 12-19 years. Throughout these developmental stages there are aspects which define the standard development that a person is measured against; these are physical, cognitive, language and speech, social and emotional, and sex/ gender identity.
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.
Understand child and young person development Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people from birth – 19 years. 1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth – 19 years. The term ‘development’ refers not to the physical growth of the children, but to the skills and knowledge that they are developing. Obviously, the two are interconnected as growth impacts enormously on children’s development, so neural growth affects the way that children are able to think. It is usual when looking at child development to divide it into the following areas.
