1.2 Explain the difference between sequence of development and rate of development and why the difference is important.
As children grow up they all develop differently according to the norm not every child is going to have the same physical development according to the average child. The sequence of development is where an event is followed one after another along with a series of changes or growth happening. The sequence of development depends on previous events which have happened. Some baby’s start to roll about 4 months and then by six months they try sitting up and then they start crawling. The next stage at about 1 year old they will try and stand up and walking whilst holding parents hands then finally they are able to walk independently. The rate of development quantity of something on comparison, the rate of development is different in every child but every child have a rate of development they all do more or less follow the same pattern of rat of development. Some babies start teething from 6 months some start later at 9 months by 1 year old some can make sentences but others can only say a few broken words. The difference between sequence of development and the rate of development is sequence development means u must finish with one area of development before u move onto the next one, the rate of development is the pace of that a child id develops, these can be the pace within each sequence or the pace overall and goes to cover all the set areas or period in between or altogether in the sequence. Development and growth is a continuous process but they differ and varies from child to child.
2.1 understand the factors that influence children and young people’s development and how these affect practice.
If a child is in poor health then it will impact on the development if a child had asthma and it wasn’t controlled then they wouldn’t be able to run around with ther friends therefore
