P1- Describe physical, intellectual, emotional and social development for each of the life stages of an individual
In this task I will be explaining development through five main life stages which are: Conception, pregnancy, birth and infancy this is 0-3 years old
Childhood which occurs from the ages 4-10 years old
Adolescence from the ages 11-18 years old
Adulthood from the ages 19-65 years old
Later Adulthood 65+
During each of these life stages we gain and learn new abilities and information. We also grow and develop physically, intellectually, emotionally and socially. Every individual will also experience the following:
Growth- The increase in quantity of an individual e.g. Weight and Height.
Development- The changes that might be complex and involve a change in the quality of some ability e.g. language development.
The may go through Milestones- The expectations we are meant to acquire around various journeys we go through in life e.g. learning to tie your laces.
0-3 YEARS; CONCEPTION, PREGNANCY, BIRTH AND INFANCY
At this particular lifestge each and every individual will experience physical, intellectual, emotional and social development for example;
Physical – when babies are born they have allot of development to do to meet the standards of an average child but every child’s development is different, some slower than others for various reasons, physically children within this life stage will have their motor skills developing they will learn to control their muscles so in the future they are able to walk, kick, throw, climb, jump and their movement will become smoother.
Intellectual- Between this stages children will be able to vocalise some words such as ‘mama’ or ‘dada’. Children will also be able to understand basic commands and imitate sounds but this is mostly likely to happen after 9 months. Children will also be able to avoid some hazards to keep themselves safe and they will be fascinated in learning and
