-Describe how atypical development may impact on areas of development. The different aspects of children's development are interlinked and co-dependent, so they will each be important to the child's holistic development. Children's overall development and educational needs will be affected by the way in which they develop in key areas. As children grow and pass different milestones or key points, they will gradually become more independent and less reliant on those around them in preparation for the future.
The reading for this week discussed the ongoing changes in the field of early childhood education, providing insight on policies and trends that are relevant and key to the success of our youngest populations. The chapter provided details on the different types of programs and teaching values, as well as the different cultural and social identities and levels of education that make up the people that millions of families entrust their children to everyday. I enjoyed reading this chapter. It mentioned the push for higher quality educators and how there is an issue of funding that education which I feel feeds into some of the issues behind overall program quality and educator accountability. A lot of parents tend to blame themselves or their
Fuller and Strath (2001) conducted a quantitative research study that examined local populations of early education organizations based on the 1990 household census data to report features of the early childhood workforce nationwide. Multiple economic and regulatory forces shaped the population of early education organizations that operated within states and local communities. The median center-based teacher was 34 years of age, reported having completed some college, and was married. The median family childcare home provider had a high school diploma. Fifteen percent of all preschool teachers in urban areas were African American and 8% were Latina.
Middle Level Education is a significant essential to adolescence developmental stages, characteristics, and upcoming adulthood. Adolescents are 10 to 15 years old or pre-teens that requires special attention and consideration based on their needs and uniqueness. Middle Level education derived from the Middle School Movement of 1963 when William Alexander mentioned at a conference that educators should consider the interest for a ‘school in the middle.’ His conclusion stated that junior high was not appropriate or specialized enough for instructing and advocating adolescents. The research knowledge of transescence, adolescents’ developmental stages, social diversity, and the elements of developmentally responsiveness impacted as a support for Alexander and other educators’ vision for providing a specific education institution for this age group: the middle school.
This area focuses on how well the child has developed in confidence and how they relate with other children in a large group. Children who haven’t yet matured enough in this area will encounter personal and social hiccups in a school setting. This area comes as a barometer of how well they are able to manage their feelings. Physical development This area focuses on the physical well-being of a child and how well they respond to their day to day needs.
It is said that 75 per cent of the brain develops after a baby is born and will keep on developing ever since and it is play that triggers the brain to connect the nerve cells together. Play from infancy to teens to adulthood helps the brain to develop even more connectivity. The executive function – which is the mental skills that allow one to manage time and attention, to plan, to remember details, and to make logical decisions – is what helps growing/developing children to learn from their past experiences and not make the same mistakes in the present

Introduction Developmental psychology makes an attempt to comprehend the types and sources of advancement in children’s cognitive, social, and language acquisition skills. The child development theories put forward by both Jean Piaget and Erik Erikson have had substantial impacts on contemporary play therapy.
