The LeapPad2 is for children from ages 3 to 9. The Preoperational stage is from ages 2-6 which is when a child is learning to use language and the Concrete Operational stage happens between 7 and 11 years of age and is when a child gains better understanding of mental operations. Language Development 1. How does this toy help a child with language development? Does it stimulate verbal, written or reading development?
STAGES OF INFANT DEVELOPMENT IN THE FIRST TWO YEARS By: Lana Sakic Metropolitan Community College DISCUSSION: The healthy development of an infant is crucial in order for children to grow into healthy adults. I will focus on discussing the physical, social and emotional, and intellectual development of an infant between the ages of birth to two years. In their first two years, children will develop their gross motor skills, such as crawling and walking and fine motor skills, like holding a fork and picking up small objects with their thumb and finger. They will adapt to and develop their senses of sight and hearing and will learn to differentiate through taste, smell and touch. Also during this period, the child will make great strides in language and social skills (Lockman, 2009, p.6).
CYP 3.1 2.3 Explain how the theories of development frameworks to support development influence current practice Researched from How Children Learn by Linda Pound Jean Piaget - Cognitive Piaget was interested in intellectual development. He identified 4 stages of development from birth through to adulthood. These are Sensorimotor Piaget called the first 2 years of a child's life the sensorimotor stage. This is when babies/toddlers knowledge and understanding are chiefly drawn from physical action and their sight, sound, taste, touch and smell (senses). Preoperational This is the stage from the age of 2 year up to the age of around 6 or 7 years old.
From birth through to adulthood children continually grow, develop, and learn. A child’s development can be measured through social, emotional, intellectual, physical and language developmental milestones. In general, child development progresses from head to toe. Beginning at the top of the body and gradually moving downwards from inner to outer. Firstly gaining control of muscles close to the head and then moving outwards so the large muscles in the shoulders and upper arms/thighs are first and the extremities last from simple to complex; children progress from simple words to complex sentences from general to specific; emotional responses involve the whole body in young babies but may involve only the face in an older child It is important to understand how children develop physically, socially, emotionally and intellectually and to know that all areas of development
E1- Describe the development of children in a selected age range and in 2 areas of development. Physical Development: Physical development is important for 3 reasons Allows new learning to take place Allows further development-build on skills already perfected Enhances confidence/self esteem 0-6 months Babies learn how to control their muscles and movements. Baby’s development of fine motor skills can be watches hands and plays with fingers, clasps and unclasps hands and can hold a rattle for a moment. Its development of gross motor skills are, lifts head and chest up and waves arms and brings hands together over body. By one month, a baby can turns its head from side to side when lying on the back or belly, and can move its hands and arms.
Physical Development: From birth a baby will start its development journey. At first a baby will lay on their back, then start lifting their head and kicking and will become fascinated by their own fingers and hand movements. By six months old, a baby can grasp objects, transfer them from hand to hand and as their head control is much improved, it becomes inevitable that with any object held, an attempt to put it in their mouth will be made. Mobility starts around the 9 month stage, starting off as rolling then progressing to shuffling, crawling, then finally attempts at walking unaided at 12 months. Every child is different and some children can go from shuffling to walking attempts, missing a big milestone such as crawling.
You can expect children aged three to five, to use full sentences when in conversations and use proper grammar. You can also expect them to have a better understanding of words. Children aged five “are beginning to use language in different ways e.g. to relate past events as well as to comment, name or ask questions in relation to the here and now”. http://www.maternal-and-early-years.org.uk/speech-and-language-development-what-to-expect-3-5-years 7/2/13 E2 Describe the development of
A baby will lie on his back and have the ability to turn his head to the mother’s breast. From there a baby learns to kick legs, find his hands and in time, start to control his head. Physical movement progresses between six to eighteen months from rolling over, to shuffling along, crawling, standing and walking unaided. By two he should be fully mobile and able to throw or kick a ball. Between eighteen months to four years bladder control develops and from three to five years children demonstrate their ability to run and negotiate stairs with relative ease.
Task 1 Briefly outline the physical development of children and young people between birth and the age of 19. The physical development of children between the ages of 0 to 19 differs dramatically between the ages. From birth to 3 years of age a child’s skills are limited, varying from being able to do simple tasks like turning their head in response to sounds or movement around them , reaching out their hands when they want something and in turn being able to grab hold of an object which invariably ends up being put in their mouth. They smile, recognise their mother and respond to familiar sounds and people. The progression from 6 months to 2 year sees a child become more active and stable in their movements and activities.
