From birth to 6months- a child will develop a range of skills starting with being alerted when you say their name. Their neck muscles will become stronger and they will be able to hold their head
1.1 Describe expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years.
2.1 Explain how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors
Describe the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years
In the initial few months babies will recognise familiar voices and faces, they will try to 'people please' and bay for attention by performing for their audience through laughter and giggles. They will enjoy playing games with others such as peek a boo.
1. Explain the sequence and rate of each aspect of development from birth – 19years.
All children and young people develop at different rates, but the order which they advance in differs very little. Children’s development tends to progress from head to toe, inner to outer, from simple to complex and from general to specific.
Babies at three months have now grown in both height and weight. They are wearing new sets of clothes and have changed in many ways. Some babies have learned the difference between night and day and are able to sleep through the night, which is great help for parents. Babies are also crying less and most parents are getting better at knowing at what their cries mean. Babies are starting to sleep a little less and are far more alert. They may smile quite often and show that they know the sound of their parents’ voices and movements. Babies’ bodies are also developing. They are able to lift their heads up and look about when they are put on their tummies.
Here we will be looking at each child’s physical development, social and emotional development, intellectual development, and language development. Not one area of development is less important than another, and they all have an impact on each other.

| There are many physical developments that a child starts to develop by 6months. Some of these include; being able to turn their heads when they hear sounds or see movements, when they are being fed they can stare at the adult’s face, when they hear a familiar voice they will smile, put whatever they have into their mouth and be able to hold and shake a rattle.
