Presentation on theme: "FACTORS AFFECTING DEVELOPMENT"— Presentation transcript:


2 What is Child Development?
Child development is a process every child goes through. This process involves learning and mastering skills like sitting, walking, talking, skipping, and tying shoes. There are 5 main areas of development: Social and Emotional Development Cognitive Development Speech and Language Development Fine motor skill Development Gross motor skill Development

3 Development Delay Development delay is where a child has not learnt the skills that are expected at that time point. Development delay can occur in any of the 5 areas. For example, a child would be expected to walk between 9 and 15 months, and a child that cannot walk by 20 months would be considered to have a developmental delay.

4 What causes developmental delay?
There are two factors: Biological- such as genetic or chromosomal abnormalities (Downs Syndrome) or illness and disease Social- such as a child’s life experiences or exposure to harmful chemicals or parenting Nature Nurture

Some families will place great interest in education and encourage children to do homework Children who have a wider supportive network can feel more secure Boys may develop more gross motor skills while girls develop more fine motor skills Education can be seen as better for boys, or as ‘girlish’.
