Task A - Complete tables; Questions


Candidates will complete the five tables on the following pages, showing the sequence and rate of development for children and young people from birth to 19 years.

1. Physical development
2. Intellectual and cognitive development
3. Communication development
4. Social, emotional and behavioural development
5. Moral development

(Ref 1.1)


Candidates will answer the following questions.

1. What is the difference between ‘sequence’ of development and ‘rate’ of development? |The difference between sequence and rate of development is that sequence of development follows a sequence in which a child must learn | |or evolve skills, especially when it comes to physical development for example a child must walk before they can run and a baby must be | |able to hold their head up before they can sit-up. Where as rate of development focuses on at what age a child starts to develop these | |skills as a individual for example one child may begin to speak at 12 months of age and another may not until they are 15 months. |

2. Why is the difference important?
|The difference between the sequence and rate of development is very important as every individual child develops in different ways and | |at different times. It’s important we record this so we can make targets and plan activities for each child and so we can look at rate | |of development to check if development is atypical and needs further investigation. |

(Ref 1.2)
