1. What was the developmental stage of your patient? Explain their accomplishments at this developmental stage. Does it match their chronologic age?
They would also develop primitive reflexes and have control of their head. When an infant hits 4-6 months they would physically be able to sit unsupported, roll over and develop their fine motor skills such as moving things from one hand to another. Also at this age, they should weigh between 14.8-17.5lb and be 26.1-27.2 inches tall. Physically, infants start to stand alone at the age of 9 months and eventually develop the fine motor skill of having ‘pincer’ movements between their thumbs and fingers. This would allow infants to explore and discover for themselves by being in contact with the things around them.
The first part of the study involved observing child K’s motor and fine motor skills in her home. First, I would observe her motor skills. To get her more excited, I decided to play with her and her sister. At 4 years of age, child K should be enjoying the movements of hopping, jumping, and running while be more adventurous than they were at 3 years of age (Santrock, pg. 158, 2012). Obviously, at age 4, she has already learned how to walk and run on her own.
Communication and intellectual development Children communication and intellectual skill we usually develop with them as they grow older, mostly this will depend on their own experience and the opportunities they are given from the very early age. Babies 0-12 months: starts listening to all words been said to there but with little understanding of it however, they can communication using: • pre-linguistic language- use vegetative sounds, cooing and laughter, vocal play and babbling • non-verbal language – crying, facial expression and whole-body movement. 1-2 years: As they grow older they slowly start to use linguistic and verbal language to communicate were they can put words together to make a statement. By 3-4 children have started to make full statement and use plurals in their speech, even though they will make mistakes when speaking.
According to developmental psychology a person at any age is at a certain stage of cognitive, moral, psychosocial, and physical development. This development is measured by different types of thinking, mental capacity for tasks, physical strength, and reasoning for following rules. Development is easily seen in children. Naturalistic observation is the one of the easiest method to see these developments in children. This is the observation technique I used, while watching a five year old male at Kindercare Daycare at 3:30 on a Friday.
Her gait was smooth and effortless. She had good balance and ran with control. She was able to pick up large toys from the floor without falling over as well. These are all expected findings for gross motor skills as a four year old. For fine motor skills she colored, stacked blocks, and matched shapes.
The children whose age is around 0-2, are unable to develop a spoken English language due to the voice box not being fully developed until after the age of two. However, according to Dr. Baker, it is proven that deaf and hard of hearing children at the age of 0-2 can develop visual language, such as American Sign Language or other foreign sign languages (Baker, 2011). This will make the
They develop simple skills such as walking, running, and jumping and thereafter develop complex skills such as skipping, long jump, galloping and so on. Initially, children are introduced to simple shapes then to silhouettes, to jigsaw puzzles and eventually to abstract shapes united by a concept (Daniels, Lauder & Porter, 2013).
and it begins with the sensorimotor stage, a child from birth to the age of 2 years old learns and thinks by doing and figuring out how something works. The second stage is the preoperational stage and in this stage children from ages 2 through 7 years are developing their language and they do pretend play (Berk, 2005, p.20). Concrete operational is the third stage and children ages 7 to 11 years old lack abstract but have more logic than they did when they were younger. The last stage is formal
Early coaching or practicing motor skills can improve infant motor skills later in life. All of the skills that have been train during their early stage and directly related to the quality of experiences they have playing with their parents. Based on research, playful movements of very young infants can contribute to fundamental motor abilities. For example, children as young as six months of age adapt their reaching and grasping to both the characteristics of particular objects they are playing with and the surfaces on which these objects lie (Bourgeois, Akhawar, Neal, & Lockman, 2005; de Campos, Rocha, Cicuto, & Savelsbergh, 2010. These playful manipulations of objects provide the basis for the later acquisition of object control skills, such as throwing .
The life span of an individual goes through developmental stages in life, from conception to death. The majority of the stages we pass are biological, socio-economical and psychological birth rights. This essay will focus on the two stages, drawn from the eight stages of Erikson Theory, namely: Trust vs Mistrust and Generativity vs Stagnation. The essay will further discuss authoritative parenting and attachment styles. The eight stages which a healthy person should undergo from infancy to late adulthood, are built on the success of mastering the previous stage.
Piaget developed a stage theory of intellectual development that included four distinct stages: the sensorimotor stage, from birth to age 2; the preoperational stage, from age 2 to about age 7; the concrete operational stage, from age 7 to 11; and the formal operational stage, which begins in adolescence and spans into adulthood. He believed that there were four necessary ingredients for cognitive development which included: “maturation of the nervous system, experiences gained through interaction with physical world, social environment, and child’s active participation in adapting to environment & constructing knowledge from experience.” (Sullivan, 2014, Slide 3) The sensorimotor stage occurs between birth and age 2. Infants and toddlers acquire knowledge through sensory experiences and handling objects.
