Milestones of Physical Development Presentation

[WLOs: 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 3, 4]

Prior to beginning work on this assignment,

· Read Chapters 4 and 5 in your textbook.

· Review the web page on child development Basic Information (Links to an external site.).

· Find at least two Scholarly, Peer-Reviewed, and Other Credible Sources (Links to an external site.) of information on early childhood physical development milestones.

As an early childhood education professional, it’s important for you to understand typical development of young children and signs to recognize when a child may not be developing as expected.  For this assignment, you will develop a presentation to be shared with colleagues and volunteers who may work in your classroom or learning center. Your presentation will include information about the important developmental milestones of children from birth through age 8. You will also be sharing how children’s physical development is connected to the overall well-being of the child. Finally, you will also discuss signs that a child may be delayed in development.

Complete your assignment using Prezi (Links to an external site.) or PowerPoint. Review the following Ashford University help sheet How to Make a PowerPoint Presentation (Links to an external site.) for more information on creating a PowerPoint, or review how to use Prezi by watching the video How to Use Prezi (Links to an external site.).

In your assignment,

1. Describe one daily activity that encourages gross motor development for each of the following age-groups:

   a. Infant (Birth - 12 months)

   b. Toddler (One year - Three years)

   c. Early Childhood (Four - Eight Years)

2. Describe one daily activity that encourages fine motor development for each of the following age-groups:

    a. Infant (Birth - 12 months)

    b. Toddler (One year - Three years)

    c. Early Childhood (Four - Eight Years)

3. Discuss one sign that might alert you to a delay in a child’s physical development for each of the following age-groups:

    a. Infant (Birth - 12 months)

    b. Toddler (One year - Three years)

    c. Early Childhood (Four - Eight Years)

As you have read, all development is interconnected. For example, as children become more mobile, they can crawl to other people and thus expand their social skills. Using information from the reading assignments,

· Outline an example of how children’s physical development is connected to development in the following areas:

o Cognitive development

o Language development

o Social development

o Emotional development
