The term “plastic” suggests development can go in many directions and can be influenced by events occurred in the past (Berger, 2008). A great deal of people will put emphasis on the plasticity of the human lifespan; one can see this in the example of a child who is suffering from a lack of nutrition. The child could possibly suffer from a reduce in understanding but when
Most social intellectual and emotional change across the lifespan are described as development. At each life stage there are changes that take place in the human body. Infants and children in particular go through what are known as development norms or milestones. Developmental norms A norm is something that is expected, there are certain sequences and developments that are expected with respect to the physical and intellectual development. Although there are norms, it is important to remember that every child will develop in their own way.
holding their head up, sitting up, baring weight on legs, walking and then running. This sequence of development generally has a said pattern or order. Even though elements are sometimes missed the development still proceeds in what's seen as an expected pattern. 1:2 The rate of development relates to the speed in which a child achieves their sequence milestones. This speed can differ greatly from child to child.
Most children will follow the same “pattern of development” but the ages at what they meet them may differ depending on the individual. Milestones of development are given as broad average of when a a child should be expected to reach a particular stage. Physical Development 0-3 Years: This stage is usually very rapid. At birth babies depend on reflexes for movements to enable them to feed or grasp whenever they touch something. By age one; they have much more control over their bodies.
Developmental Profile Paper Life-Span Development PSY/500 University of Phoenix Dr. Vong Rathsachack May 19, 2012 Introduction Children develop quickly, no one can delay it, no one can prevent it, however, how children develop and why is the most important factors. Early and middle childhood are the most important years in development, the brain changes rapidly and then slows down. The body changes from infant form and takes the form of male or female, with the development of longer leaner muscles or shorter stubbier bodies. Activities that children enjoy change as they become more aware of their feelings and emotions. Nothing in this world is more important than learning how and why your body and mind change so drastically.
Each area supports another rather than just one at a time. It is important to look at a child’s growth and development holistically as there are many factors that will affect the way the child’s brain develops from birth. This is known as brain wiring. The stages of development as a child grows are examples of the ‘normal’ milestones that children reach at a certain age. It is important to understand and remember that although children usually develop in the same sequence, the rate of their development can vary from child to child and will vary with regards to each child’s abilities, gender, race and needs.
From the way we are physically, to those around us emotionally, to the way in which we perceive the entirety of the world. Around us, everything will eventually change. Majority of the time we are not even overtly conscious of the changes that are occurring, but none-the-less they are happening. The alterations in our lives are a natural course that cannot be easily stopped or controlled. When we think of all of the things we valued and appreaciated at the ages of, six, ten and even fourteen, the continuous abundance of the transformations in our lives becomes apparent to us.
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.
Children develop at different rates, but they all follow the same sequance. 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. Physical Development: Within physical development there are lots of different areas: -Gross motor skills - are the large movement of your body ( arms and legs) e.g: walking, running, throwing, punching, hopping.
Name: Esther Lawal P1: Describe the physical, intellectual, emotional and social development of each of the life stages of your chosen individual. Lifespan development: From the moment we are first conceived, to the day we die; we are constantly changing and developing. Some of the stages we pass through are due to biological and psychological heritage as human beings and are shared by all people. Our lifespan development provides us with a view of the different stages that we pass through: Birth, Infancy, Adolescence, Adulthood, old age and death. During these stages, we learn how to use our body physically, learn to communicate, learn to socialize with others and also share emotions such as love.
