Table 1: Physical development

Age range
Explain the sequence and rate of development
0-3 years

When babies are first born, their movements are grasping and sucking, in this early stage they have very little control over their bodies. They cry for food or attention. They will begin to recognise faces and smile. Their first noises are cooing, gurgling, laughing, and squealing. Rolling over as they have gained more control over their actions, trying to sit up, play with their feet, pointing at people or objectives as they begin to recognise things, holding toys and playing, pulling themselves up on furniture, first steps of walking. Feeding themselves and holding a bottle. Basic words such as dad, mum, cat. By 3 developed more language, drawing and colouring, looking at books, riding small bikes, using the toilet.
3-7 years

By 3 a child should have more coordination and confidence. Might keep asking who, what, were and why? They will be practising their cutting, writing their name, drawing skills. They should be more confident in taking part in activities, running, playing ball, learn to play with other children, be at nursery school, recall part of a story and sing some songs, can use to 50 words, get themselves dressed, start school learn words to help them read.

Developing sense of humour, questioning, reasoning, chatting and telling jokes. They will also develop their own preferences opinions and thoughts. Girls particularly might show some of the early signs of puberty. Boys will be a little later.
12- 16 years

This is the interval between childhood and adulthood. Most boys at this age will be starting puberty, when most girls have finished.
16-19 years

At this stage young people become adults. Most girls would have reached physical maturity boys continue till their mid-20s.
Table 2: Communication and Intellectual development
Age range
Explain the sequence and rate of development
0-3 years

It is important in the early stages that adults try to communicate with babies, even though babies don’t understand what you say. It is really important that babies be stimulated and adults show interest in them. Some babies that don’t spend time with adults find it hard to learn the communication skills. Most babies listen to the sounds around them and enjoy you singing and playing games with them. Some babies will try to speak around 12 months, some of their words might not be very clear. Normally 1-2 years they put words together and learn new words. By the age of 2 most children would have learnt up to 200 words. By 2-3 they will keep learning new words but make mistakes in their language when speaking.
3-7 years

By this age children should become more social with other children and use familiar phrases, they will also ask more questions and they use this to learn things. By now they will be developing their writing and reading skills.
7-12 years

At this stage children should be fluent in their language, be developing their reading and writing skills further, develop their own preferences, opinions and thoughts.
12-16 years

At this age now they should have an idea what their favourite subject and activity is. This is the age to be taking GCSEs and then A levels.
