I feel as though this metaphor type is the strongest that is present in life, due to how it influences people from birth to adulthood. Another metaphor type is Primary Metaphors, which has to do with how the brain maps while linking to various brain regions; this concept is learned naturally, relating to that of a conceptual metaphor. Around the world today, different
Homogeneity Test The sampling process was performed on a continuum (from pre-intermediate to upper-intermediate). In order to have homogeneous groups and real-intermediate level students, the first part of the Oxford Placement Test (OPT) containing 40 questions was administered. The test helped the researcher to make sure if all of the participants were at the intermediate level of proficiency. The test has been developed by Oxford University Press in 2001, after consultation with many teachers to assess the subject's knowledge of the key language as well as their receptive and productive skills (see appendix A). Interpersonal inventory The interpersonal inventory was extracted from MI Inventory that validated and modified for the Iranian context by Hajhashemi and Wong (2010) implemented in this study.
A child's development of their cognitive, emotional, language, physical, and social skills in an age-specific, sequential pattern is usually referred to as child development milestones. They explain each new achievement the child has made as a progression from previous milestones. Parents and pediatricians find them extremely useful as they act as a guide to the normal progression of the child's skills through each ensuing stage of their development such as infancy, toddler, preschool, and school age. The charts used for development milestones are usually displayed to depict the varying ages and paces at which the child reaches specific milestones. Therefore, there may be instances where these specific developmental skills don't always follow the prescribed sequence.

NEO Five Factor Inventory (NEO-FFI). NEO-FFI-3 is a 60-item version of the NEO-PI-3, made by McCrae & Costa (1992) will be used to measure the five personality domains i.e. Neuroticism, Extraversion, Openness, Agreeableness, and Conscientiousness (12 items per domain) while using a 5-point Likert-type scale, ranging from strongly agree to strongly disagree. b. Test Anxiety Inventory (TAl).

• It is a psychological assessment instrument used to evaluate visual-motor functioning and visual perception skills in both children and adults . • Scores on the test are used to identify possible organic brain damage and the degree maturation of the nervous system.

Through the My Virtual Life program, students are afforded the opportunity to explore the physical, cognitive, social, emotional, and moral developmental patterns. Through thorough consideration and decision making efforts, the child developed based on the decisions made by the parent, or user, as well as certain environmental factors. The My Virtual Life program proved to be effective in honing in on the most important developmental commonalities and consequential decisions which parents must make. Although, the child may not have been real, the effects of every decision made – in the form of multiple choice questions – certainly demonstrated realistic effects which model the course of development of an average minor. Oliver had a natural
What is the evidence that early childhood is a sensitive time for learning language? Social interaction, myelination, brain maturation, and scaffolding are evidence that early childhood is a sensitive time for learning language. In addition, children in early childhood are considered “language sponges” because they absorb every bit of language they hear or read. How does fast-mapping aid the language explosion? Fast-mapping aids the language explosion by making fast vocabulary acquisition.
Working memory of humans is one of the most important functions in the human psyche. It allows one to activate and encode a set of mental images for further manipulation and processing within a short period of time (Carruthers, 2013). Working memory is essential for assuming the challenges of the daily lifestyle as well as academic tasks namely reading or arithmetic activities. Therefore, working memory is important for cognitive and academic development throughout childhood. Current studies have shown that working memory in patients diagnosed with developmental absence of the corpus callosum, is highly affected and shows it through different domains such as intellectual functioning and academic functioning.
