Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory. There are many theories about how children learn and develop. This area of study is called developmental psychology which covers subjects such as cognitive, language and emotional development. The research methods are based heavily on the on going assessments carried out by observing children over a period of time. Assessment is part of the process of understanding what children know, understand and can do so that future teaching steps can be appropriately planned.
Unit 6 Understand child and young person’s development. 09.09.13 Review A child's development usually follows a known and predictable course. The acquisition of certain skills and abilities is often used to gauge such development. Children will reach milestones at certain ages throughout their development, if a child does not seem to be achieving these areas of development this may be a concern and an area that needs special attention. From birth to 19 years a child should achieve a number of significant development areas, these are determined by a sequence of development and the rate of development.
Understand the expected pattern of development for children and young people birth – 19 years. 2. Understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice. 3. Understand how to monitor children and young people’s development and interventions that should take place if this is not following expected pattern 4.
Understand how to monitor children and young people's development and interventions that should take place if this is not following the expected pattern. 1. Explain how to monitor children and young people's development using different methods. Children and Young people are likely to be monitored and assessed at many different points in their lives and by different services; the health service will check a newborn. Monitoring and assessing a child's early development is crucial as it has been seen that early intervention can make a huge difference to a child's overall outcome.
1.3.1 Explain how to monitor children and young people’s development using different methods: When children and young people’s development is monitored and assessed, it enables practitioners and professionals to notice when they are not progressing as expected. Therefore, if necessary checks can be made to see why children are not developing as expected. If we intervene in early years, they will be able to get appropriate support they need and their development is promoted. There are several methods of monitoring children’s development. Observations play a very important part in assessing the children’s development.
Unit Title: Understand child and young people’s development. Unit Number: CYP Core 3.1 Unit Reference: L/601/1693 1. Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth to 19 years. 1.2 Explain the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the difference is important. The sequence of development is a pattern in which a child develops from infancy, through childhood and into adulthood, these are usually categorized in two ways: personal factors: factors that are specific to a child such as: disabilty, health status, impairment, learning difficulty, bereavment etc.
Define the components and their functions. Summarize the interrelationship among the components and explain what is needed to move information through the model. Explain how a child processes information and how the process changes as the child grows older. Explain whether you believe environment and heredity influence intelligence and information processing. Format your paper according toAPA guidelines.
Include the following: • Explain how families affect the development of infants and young children. • Evaluate different parenting styles and their influence on development during infancy and early childhood. Include which parenting style you feel is most effective and why. • Discuss early childhood education and its influence on cognitive development. • Include at least two references.
The tasks below will help you to become more familiar with them.Task 1 - [1.1,1.2]Outline the current legislation, guidelines, policies and procedures that affect the safeguarding of children and young people. Include how child protection within the wider concept affects the safeguarding of children and young people.Task 2 - [1.3] Analyse how national and local guidelines,policies and procedures for safeguarding affect the day to day work with pupils in school. For example - child protection , risk assessment Task 3 - [1.4]Explain when and why inquiries and serious case reviews are required and how the sharing of the findings informs practice. Task 4 - [1.5] Provide an explanation on the processes used by own work setting -
Movement limitations may compromise children's abilities to communicate, interact, and explore their environments (Gallahue 1999). This strong connection between movement and other domains, especially cognitive development, was underscored by Piaget, who theorized that in the first 2 years of life, which he called the sensorimotor phase, motor actions in the environment provide the foundation for children's intelligence . For these reasons, we believe that early movement skills should be monitored to allow for early detection and intervention (Gallahue
