Final Project: Developmental Process and Presentation “The early years of a child's life are crucial for cognitive, social and emotional development. Therefore, it is important that we take every step necessary to ensure that children grow up in environments where their social, emotional and educational needs are met”. (Child Development and Public Health, 2008) Child development is the growth, and learning throughout their lives. The growth process starts at the age of birth and ends at death. Child development is measured in a number phases we go through. Social, physical, and cognitive are developmental milestones all must go through. At infancy, babies cannot control their body movements, and what movements a person sees are their reflexes. Infants can only see objects clearly if they are about ten inches away. By the time the baby has reached six months their vision has improved. (Nuttall, 1995) By four months some babies have gained some type of control over their muscles and nervous system. They are sitting with help from mom and dad, holding their head up, and can roll from their side to their stomach. We begin to sit alone, eat and sleep on a schedule by the time we have reached six to twelve months. Infants are learning to hold item in their hands, reaching for things that interest us. We crawl on the floor, pull up on object to stand, we walk along the furniture, and when you hold our hand we like to lead. (Nuttall, 1995) An infant’s social and emotional development begins when the child starts at trust with their parents or caregivers. When they are scared or frightened a baby will cry or look surprised. Infants cry when they are hungry, wet, scared, or in pain, not knowing how to talk this how they communicate with the world around them. They have learned to recognize their family member’s faces, and voices. The intellectual development that infants have learned are to focus on objects that are moving, cry in different ways for food, and when wet, cooing and babbling noises are the best.
