1.1 Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years, to include: physical, social, emotional, behavioural, intellectual and communicational development.
Through a young person’s development, from birth to 19 they are expected to follow a development pattern including physical, social, environmental, behavioural, intellectual and communicational. The expected pattern is seen as the average time period it would take to accomplish these skills. In this assignment I will discuss the main stages of development and how it can sometimes differ for different sexes.
The expected pattern starts at 0-3 years where a child is expected to develop the most. They have little control over their bodies at 0-1 years and are dependent on their natural instincts e.g. sucking, grasping but when the child has more control over their body they will start to crawl and eventually progress to walking. By the age of 3 as well as walking the child will have learnt to sound words, whilst speaking at a very basic level e.g. numbers, colours, mummy, daddy, in total they are expected to have retained at least 200 words. This means the child is capable of holding a basic conversation with other children and those around them; this is the start of their confidence building and socialising skills expanding.
At the age of 3 children are expected to speak at a very basic level and have grasped the basic skills such as gripping, holding objects. The child should be able to run and walk with confidence and should be able to understand the emotional attachment through interaction and communication with others.
Development from 3-7 years is expected to progress mostly in the co-ordination of movements and refinement of the skills developed so far both resulting in having more confidence and independence. New skills are introduced such as dressing themselves and drawing/writing; these are fine motor skills that
