How is it that two men that come from identical backgrounds end up being completely opposites? Wes Moore takes us back to his childhood growing up, and also introduces us to a character sharing the same name as him, and similarly, the same lifestyle. Both of the young men shared the absence of a father figure, living in poor neighborhoods, bad influences, and lack of education. While reading, we question “how?” and “why?” There is no exact answer to our questions. Inside of “The Other Wes Moore”, two similar tales are told, however, there are two different outcomes.
As mentioned in task 7 there are different factors which contribute towards child’s development not follow expected pattern. Early identification of the problem put one in advantageous position to get early solution.
This assignment is in two parts. The first part of this assignment would attempt to use the theories of human development to explain the child behaviours observed during child observation at the preschool while the second part of this assignment would propose an intervention on a scenario at my practice placement. I would demonstrate my critical understanding of the theories and evaluate their relevance for evidence-informed and value-based practice. I would conclude by articulating my critical appreciation of the use of theory to inform professional social work practice based on my experience from the child observation and my placement experience. The notes taken from the child observations and a chosen case from my placement,
During the first period of a child’s life, we develop from absolute physical dependence to independence though the new skills and strength we gain each day. By just 1 month old a baby can turn its head from side to side whilst lying flat and has started to move it’s hands and arms, from here the baby’s motor control will continue to develop from the head, to the arms and trunk until the physical development reaches their legs and feet. While the baby is between 4 and 6 months old, the significant stage of the first roll becomes due. By 7 months a baby can sit and stand without support, at 8.5 months can usually crawl and the ability to walk independently occurs at about 12 months. Before
1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19 years.
There are four types of development, physical, cognitive, emotional, and social. Physical development is the growth of gross and fine motor, skills. Gross motor skills are walking, running, throwing, and crawling. Fine motor skills are writing, holding a fork, and using scissors. Physical development is also the easiest to see. Cognitive development is mental development. This development includes learning to recite the alphabet, recognize shapes and colors, problem solve, and use words and phrases. Emotional development is learning what feelings are and being able to recognize what they mean and why they happen. Social development is learning how to interact with other people. There are many things and situations that can affect any of these
Unlike adolescents and adults, growth and development is different in infants and toddlers. Observations from the physical, cognitive and perceptual development show that toddlers and infants grow and develop at a faster rate than adults. The physical, cognitive and motor development in infants and toddlers is higher than the same development in adults. This paper is an analysis and interpretation of an observation conducted with an aim to understand the growth and development of toddlers and infants. It explains an observation of an infant boy named Taylor who is 8 months old. Taylor was born in North Carolina and has been living with his parents since he was born.
To develop from the child to adult, there are two main focus which is nature and nurture that must come together. Nature refers to the gene or heredity, meanwhile nurture involve the environment around us.
Sequence of development means the order in which a child develops. Sequenced development also involves patterns. Although children develop paces are different, most childrenâ€TMs development have definite pattern e.g. a toddler being able to walk before can run. Though some children miss particular phrases, they still proceed in whatâ€TMs viewed as an expected pattern, e.g. sitting up, walking, running but missing out rolling over and crawling. Rate of development means
While you might think of child development as something that begins during infancy, the prenatal period is also considered an important part of the developmental process. Prenatal development is a time of remarkable change that helps set the stage for future child development.
In the video from Pals Daycare, I observed three infants who were sitting on the floor and the teacher was sitting next to them. Each baby were holding wooden blocks or sticks, and the teacher was holding and empty jug and was trying to get the babies to put the blocks/sticks into the opening of the jug. Two of the babies did not seem to understand what to do with the blocks/sticks. They did not try to put them into the jug, but the third baby seemed to understand a little, and he did put it in the opening of the jug but did not understand to drop it into the jug.
Through research on child development, researchers understand the characteristics of the principles that follow. There are two principle of development cephalocaudal, proximodistal According cephalocaudal, development progress from the head downward. The child first gains control of the head, then the arms, then the legs. In first three months after birth infant’s gains control of head and the face movements. In next few months they can lift themselves up using hands. Between 6 to 12 months start gain leg control, crawls, stand and walk. According to proximodistal principal, development also proceeds from the center of the body outward. First the spinal cord develops and rest of the parts next. Arms develop before the hands, and the hands and feet develop before the fingers and toes. Fingers and toes are the last to develop. Maturation play major role on devlopmment. Maturation means, sequance of biological changes in children there changes gives new abilities. And it depends on changes in the brain and the nervous system. These changes in brain support children in improving their motor skills and thinking. Children to develop to their potential rich learning environment is required. Children must mature to a certain point before they can gain some skills. For example, the brain of a six-month-old has not matured enough to allow the child to talk. A six-month-old will babble and coo. However, by three years of age, with the help of others, the child will be able to say and understand many words. This is how cognitive development occurs from simple tasks to more complex tasks. In the same way physical skills also develop from general to specific movements. For instance, the way an infant waves its arms and legs, these moments are random. Several months after birth infants will grab the object with their whole hand. After little more months they grasp the object with

Within the process of child development, my view is based upon that is children are constantly growing through stages which is a discontinuous process. Some of the most famous theories of a continuous process are Freud, Erikson and Piaget. At each stage of a child's life, they should meeting
Development is a normative concept due to which there is a constant tussle in conceptually defining development. There are different models of development parse but it has been increasingly equated to economic development and wrongly paralleled to economic growth. In strictly economic terms, development has conventionally meant a sustained annual increase in GNP (or GDP) at rates that vary from 5 percent to 7 percent or more (Kapila, 2013). Till the 1960’s the term economic development was used as a synonym to economic growth; where the latter meant increase in per capita GNP in real terms (adjusted to inflation). According to the economic historian Kindleberger, “Whereas economic growth merely refers to a rise in output, economic development
