First Two Years of Life Teachers BIOSOCIAL The five senses are what give a child the ability to classify things. Motor skills progress slowly over the first few month of infancy. At birth the have a strong grip but no control and progress to being able to focus on an object and grab it at six month. A infants brain is gaining new information all the time. COGNITIVE As a infant grows overs its first year its ability to process information improves The memory of an infant isn’t very good. Memory requires a certain level of brain maturation and a certain amount of experience to be able to remember anything. PSYCHOSOCIAL If trust and comfort is established in social settings, a child will feel better and more inclined to explore social setting later in life. Children learn by watching others, and during the infant years, without the ability to communicate children are very clued in and observe everything.

First two years of Life Parent BIOSOCIAL Infants grow at a very rapid pace, so any negligence can cause major problems. Newborns spend 15-17 hours sleeping Babies who are breast feed are sick less often. Proper nutrition is vital in the growth and development of a infant. COGNITIVE Infants begin listening and learning the language of their parents a few weeks before they are born. Between the ages of 6-9 months babies start to babble. The amount of speaking a child is exposed to is directly connected to their parents. Reading and talking to a child will get them talking faster than teaching them how to sign. PSYCOSOCIAL Infants experience pleasure and pain. They are happy and relaxed when fed or held, or cry when are hurt of hungry. The temperament of a child is influenced not only by environment but by their genotype. A child’s behavior is molded by their parents and how their parents respond or punish the child’s behavior.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
