Child Development Child development is a dynamic process Normal development is determined by a complex interplay between environmental factors, genetic factors and acquired pathology.
Warning Signs of Abnormal Development Echolalia- repetitive imitation of speech- still present by 3 years. Absoulte failure to develop skills (eg multi- syllable babble with intonation- by 10 months) Motor asymmetry Developmental regression- loss/ plateauing of skills
The Developmental Examination History taking: family history, social and family environment, pre-, peri- and postnatal history. Enquire into the parents concerns and seek information from others who know the child (eg. teachers, health- care staff)
Observation and interactive assessment Suitable selection of toys should be made available before meeting the family and interacting with the child. Appropriate toys for the age of the child and the domains of development to be assessed.
Observation and interactive assessment Examples: Copying behaviour (bell) and understanding of cause and effect (pop- up animal toys) Definition by use (cup/ spoon, doll/ brush) and symbolic understanding (doll/ teddy/ tea set) Fine motor/ eye- hand (bricks, crayons/pencil/paper, soft ball, form boards, puzzles) Language and play (books with single pictures and stories, range of everyday toy objects, large and miniature toys)
Observation and interactive assessment ‘Free Play’- the child’s inability to organize the environment and generate ideas on their own will be significant. Eg. May not be able to focus attention (flit from one object to another or repetitive play may be noted. Cardinal rule of DA: to look not only what the child does, but also how s/he does it. Quality of response should therefore be monitored as well as the actual achievement.

Visual Behaviour, eye- hand coordination and problem solving Progressive coordination of maturing vision with head, body and fine motor movements can be observed through: manipulation and use of pellet, rings, bell, cubes, crayon/ pencil, form boards or puzzles. Achievement in this domain represent the precursor to later non- verbal problem solving abilities, correlate well with intellectual ability and may provide early markers for learning, psychological and psychiatric disorders.
Co-ordinated eye movements and eye-head co-ordination Earliest developmental sequence starts with fixing gaze on the mother’s face following a face with eyes only co- ordinate eye- head movements to turn head to follow visually Any abnormality of early visual behaviour should prompt referral for ophthalmological assessment
Eye- head co-ordinated milestones Developmental milestones Mean age Limit age (months) (months) Visually alert, orients to face 1 Any delay Visually follows face 2 Any delay Co-ordinates eye movements with 3 Any delay head turning
Eye- hand co-ordination The infant shows visual awareness of hands and becomes increasingly refined in combining vision with hand movements for reaching, grasping, exploring and releasing objects.
Eye- hand co-ordination milestones Developmental milestones Mean age (months) Holds objects briefly when placed in hands 3 without visual regard Visually examines own hand 4 Reaches out with a two- handed scoop 5 Reaches out and grasps objects on table surface with a 6 raking grasp Transfers from hand to hand 6 Explores with index finger 6 Picks up a pellet/ raisin between thumb and finger 9

2014/9/5 Step 1 Comprehension Object labels (15- 18 months): 'look at the....', 'where is the....', 'give me the...." Identify by use (24- 30 months): 'which one do we eat with/ drink with/ sleep in?' (avoid pointing by finger or looking at the objects while asking) Expression Object labels (18- 20 months): 'What is this one', 'this is a ...."
2014/9/5 Step 2 Comprehension (30 months) Ask without pointing: 'show me who is eating/ sleeping/ running' Expression (30- 36 months) Ask while pointing at a picture: 'What is the boy/ girl doing)'
2014/9/5 Step 3 Comprehension Preposition (24- 36 months) Colour (identify or name 2 colours by 36 months and four by 48 months) Size: identify size (bigger/ smaller) of an object or picture (36 months), a longer line (42 months), the weight (heavier of cubes, 48 months) Numbers: rote counting as a nursery rhyme (3 years), 31/2 - 4 years - count four to six cubes/ objects correctly, 4- 41/2 years- can follow direction to 'put three cubes in the cup' 4+ keyword sentences (42 months): give direction in a single sentence eg 'put the big cube and the spoon in the box' Joined up sentences (48 months):'Put the spoon in the box and the pencil on the plate'
2014/9/5 Step 3 Expression Have a conversation with the child: school/ playtime Look at the picture and tell me what is happening (describing narrative: 41/2- 5 years) Describe common objects/ concepts:'What is a key/ friend?' (defining words: 52 months)
Play and social behaviour Observation of play offers a unique opportunity to look at a number of developmental sequences as they come together to create an increasingly complex tapestry of play.
Developmental sequences involved in play Cognitive play sequence 9 months Object oriented exploration play (maturing eye- hand co- ordination and object concepts) 18 months Functional use of real objects on self and others (eg. spoon, brush) 24- 30 months Symbolic use of toys (eg. Toy, tea set, doll) 3- 4 years Pretend or imaginative play
Developmental sequences involved in play Social play sequence 4- 5 weeks Social smile (90% by 6 weeks) 6- 12 months Social anticipation Lap games (eg. peek- a- boo, pat- a cake) 10- 15 months Joint attention Points to show 3- 3.5 years Social imitative play (eg. role play)
Classification of Play Actions into the Five Stages Stage I Exploratory Play Stage 2 Relational Play Stage 3 Self Pretending Stage 4 Decentered Pretending Stage 5 Sequence Pretending By physical By usage Properties Doll+ object Doll alone Same action Theme Mouthing Banging two Spoon Objects in cup Feeds self with spoon/cup Feeds doll with Hugs spoon/ cup doll Feeds doll Sleep -self sequence -adult Shaking/ Hitting Placing objects Pillow into another on bed Combs hair Combs doll’s Kisses Hair doll Pillow on bed Doll on bed – head on pillow Examining Placing objects ‘Sheet on’ bed/ on top of table another Washes self Washes doll Walks doll Combs doll Covers -self doll -adult with sheet Dropping/ Throwing Chair to table Sleeps on doll’s bed or pillow Lies doll Makes on pillow/ doll Bed jump Feeling/ Rubbing Sits on doll’s chair Dresses self with doll’s clothes Sits doll on -dance Chair -somersault Dresses/ undresses doll Puts doll Feeding on bed Bathing Child ‘sleeps’ Gestures adult to sleep
Tools Minitiature toys: Wood table, small spoon (spoon of different sizes), doll, bathtub, 1 aeroplane (small red one), 1 teapot with cover, 1 jug, 1 bowl, 1 small dog/ cat/ cow, 1 car, 2 cups and 2 saucers, 2 chairs (different colours eg white and red of same size). 1 plastic cup, teaspoon, brush, comb, shoe, sock ( 5 items to check on language) Dangling ball (wooly 12.5cm, plastic 6.25cm) Small targets (cube 2.25cm, smartie 1.25cm, HT 1.25mm)
Gross motor Delay in achievement of the gross motor milestones may be an indicator of neurological abnormalities and is sometimes associated with a global developmental delay.
Development of attention Stage I- extreme distractibility. Attention shifts from one object/ person/ event to another. Their attention is held momentarily by whatever is the dominant stimulus (Year 1) Stage 2- children can concentrate on a task of their own choice. They are v. resistant to interference by an adult (Year 2) Stage 3- can shift their full attention to speaker and back to task with adult support. (Year 3: ‘single- chained attention’)
Development of attention Stage 4- Children begin to become able to control focus of attention. Looks at an adult only when the directions become difficult to understand (Year 4: early ‘integrated attention’) Stage 5- Can integrate verbal commands related to a task. Attention span still short. (Year 5: mature ‘integrated attention’)
Development of attention Stage 6- Fully integrated attention. Auditory, visual and physical channels are integrated. Attention is well established.(5- 6 years)
