CHARACTERISTICS OF DEVELOPMENTAL PERIODS 2 Characteristics of Developmental Periods The five childhood developmental periods are; first infancy (birth – 2 years), second comes early childhood (2 – 6 years), third; middle childhood (6 – 10 years), next would be early adolescence (10 – 14 years), and finally the fifth period; late adolescence (14 – 18). Each stage having distinctive developmental changes, the next few paragraphs will break each period down into distinguishing characteristics of all five developmental stages. Infancy; birth through two years is a really impressive period. Children excel in many areas, from the emotional bonds developed for others, using non-verbal gestures to express needs and wants, and learns to crawl and walk. These new skills take on a whole new physical purpose, to explore their environment, to find new places and things. Learning about people, places, sensations like hot or cold water, the feel of a mother’s hug, and a sense of accomplishments are gained in infancy. Early childhood; this period is full of impressive creativity, fantasy, play, and amazement.
