My assignment is about Britney Spears who was born in McComb, Mississippi on 2nd December 1981. She is 36 years old and is currently in the life stage of early adulthood. I will be writing about 3 different life stages (infancy, early childhood, and adolescence) she has been through.
Child development is one of the main aspects of growing and developing as a human being, especially Cognitive Development. Encyclopedia of Children’s Health defines cognitive development as “The construction of thought processes, including remembering, problem solving, and decision-making from childhood through adolescence to adulthood.” Starting from a young age, babies begin to learn about the world that surrounds them. They learn and absorb new information in the environment that surrounds them. These skills continue to grow stronger as babies brain continue to develop more through experiences and the expansion of their surroundings. As they become older, they will find it more difficult to develop
All children develop in physical, social, educational aspects of development. But there are several personal factors which influences children and young people’s development in one or more aspects. This includes: Health conditions, physical disability, allergies and nutrition, sensory impairment, exercise, Addiction, gender.
Cognitive development is the process that leads to the emergence of the ability to think and understand (Siegler, DeLoache, Eisenberg, & Saffran, 2014). This process involves the “development of thinking and reasoning” (Siegler et al., 2014, p.15) throughout childhood, including the growth of capabilities such as “perception, attention, language, problem solving, reasoning, memory, conceptual understanding, and intelligence” (Siegler et al., 2014, p. 131). Children contribute to their development through self-initiated activity even before they are born, by practicing breathing and digestive processes and exercising
1.1 Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth - 19 years.
There are four categories of developmental milestones. These are physical milestones, cognitive milestones, social milestones, emotional milestones and the communication milestones. These categories are the basic ones. The first category is physical milestones. The physical milestones involves both large-motor skills and fine-motor skills. The large-motor skills are usually the first to develop that includes sitting up, standing, crawling and walking.
On September 18th, 2015 I visited the Waverly Avenue Elementary school in Holtsville, New York to perform an observation of a kindergarten class. The class consist of 27 students and one teacher (Mrs.Mergott) and one teacher's assistant (the teacher assistant was out sick for the day). The purpose of this observation is to observe and evaluate the school to see if the classroom uses developmentally appropriate practices in their early childhood classes.
Throughout our lifetime there are many events that are expected to happen but there are also times that our story line is unforeseen. Brain development is a huge part of the normal milestones that will take place during childhood development, and this is grouped with those expected events. However, that it is not the case with adult development, because as we transition through the childhood stages, adolescent stages, and into adulthood the brain is considered already developed.
This paper will contain information abstracted from a naturalistic observational study conducted by Erene Christoforatos. The intention of the study was to observe and evaluate the physical and mental qualities demonstrated by an infant and then later assess the qualities as either on par or subpar according to the infant’s age, and then following up with valid reasoning as to why they were classified as such. Additionally, there were five individuals who took part in the study, and that of being the nine-month-old infant. The ultimate purpose was to question whether or not if the toddler’s reflexes, motor abilities, cognitive/sensorimotor abilities, perceptual abilities, language/communicative abilities, and social behavior reflected his developmental
Genes are inherited by your parents which you have 23 chromosomes which become DNA. There are characteristics/traits that you get from your parents or their family. Genetic beginnings are important for teachers and other professionals to know because it can show someone’s personality and appearance. As well because each and
Recent studies have shown that children during the adolescence growth period are bound to have emotional outbursts due to the period of growth they are experiencing. When children or young adults experience these scenes, they often take up a certain amount of time as well. Adolescents tend to experience behavior
Development refers to the pattern of continuity and change in human capabalities that occurs throughout the course of life (King, 2008). Children development is is a part of human development that refers to a biological, emotional, and psychological changes that take a place in human beings between birth to adult.
Having the right knowledge, skills and experience in understanding how children or young people develop are very important tools for early years practitioners. We must put to mind that each child born to this world is unique; they are born with different characters and their personalities and behaviours are formed and influenced by variety of factors. These factors may affect their ways of interacting to the environment and community or setting in which they live in.
