Communication and language. Intellectual and cognitive. Physical Development 0-3 years Physical development at this stage is very rapid. From birth babies use reflexes for movements to enable them to feed or grasp whenever they touch something. At 12 months they have more control of their body.
They will be trying to lift there heads up and will be kicking and waving their arms about and will be becoming more alert.will now support their own head and will be rolling about they will beging to sit with support and will now start to use the Palmer grasp and pincer grasp.9-18 months they will now be holding a cup and trying to feed themselfs and will be more mobile climbing stairs with supervision but will need help to get back down. They will need a safe environment in which they can explore as they become increasingly more mobile.18 months to 2 years at this age they will have started to use the potty but may have difficulty in staying clean and dry.there fine motor skills have improved they will be able to build block towers and will bend down to pick things up they will be trying to run but will have difficultly in stopping . At the age of 2-3 they will be ables to come down the stairs one step at a time they will also now be climbing well on apparatus and kick a ball, learn to jump and maybe somersault.
Unit 1 Child And Young Person Development 1.1 Physical Development 0-19 Years 0-3 - When babies are first born they have very little control, with their movements limited to reflexes such as grasping and sucking. By 12 months babies have more control and mobility and start to crawl or roll. Into year 2 most babies will begin to try to walk, and more control of their movements means they are able to use their hands for holding small objects or point and feed themselves. Standing and walking becomes easier and lead to climbing or play with ball. By the third year they will be starting to walk and run, use cups and feed themselves.
Although all children will develop at different rates and in different ways, the sequence in which they develop will be roughly the same as they need to have developed one skill, for example walking, before they move on to develop another such as running and jumping. 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. From birth through to adulthood children continually grow, develop, and learn.
1. 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 to 19 years. There are several different areas of development: Physical 0-3 years A period of fast physical development. Babies have very little control over their bodies but by 12 months usually have some degree of mobility, crawling /rolling.
Boys usually taller than girls on average. | Communication and intellectual Development Birth – 3 years | 3 – 7 years | 7 – 12 years | 12 – 19 years | At the earlier stages adults try to communicate with babies even though they will not understand what is being said. It is important for babies to be stimulated. By 1 year babies will try to speak. 1 – 2 years babies will try and put words together.
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 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.
They will show a series of reflexes such as grasping or sucking. They need these to survive. Over the next 12 months they will develop more control and eventually should improve mobility such as rolling or crawling. In the next 12 months babies will quickly develop and most children will start to take steps onto walking. They are also able to control their movement.
(Usual order in which development takes place) The rate of development is the space a child develops and grows at. 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. (Usual time frame in which developments take place) It’s important to know the difference between the sequence and rate of development as it helps to meet the children’s individual needs. While the sequences are common amongst most children, what often changes is the rate in
Each and every child develops at differing rates; there development also goes through periods of peaks and troughs, right from the very beginning a child learns to react to different situations, recognising familiar faces and smells. Milestones are set to keep tract of children’s development and to highlight any problem areas. Although every child is different and the speed in which they reach set mile stones can vary hugely the sequence in which these milestones are achieved vary very little. A young baby will generally learn to hold its head before it can sit, then roll over before its starts to crawl, a toddler learns to walk before it can run, say single words before full sentences, although some children may skip some of the milestones set they generally follow the same sequence of event, although there are exceptions to every rule, they do tend to be just that. Physical development is the growth of movement skills in both fine and gross motor skills and development in hand to eye co-ordination.
