The Development Approach

To look after and work with children it is important that you understand their development. It is impossible to think about how you can meet a child’s needs unless you know what to expect from him or her in terms of thinking, communication, and physical abilities for example. Nicolette Categorises this approach in five major ways.

1.PHYSICAL DEVELOPMENT
2.SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT
3.COMMUNICATION AND SPEECH DEVELOPMENT
4.INTELLECTUAL DEVELOPMENT
5.EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT
