Watching the ways that children grow and develop is a rewarding experience for
families and professionals.
Almost all children follow the same patterns of development, even if the timing
is different. There are four key areas that tell us whether a child is following
the normal pattern of development. These are:
Motor (muscle control);
Social and emotional;
Language (including reading);
Cognition and understanding.
It is important to remember that the rate of development varies:
From child to child;
Within each child.
This means that not only do children develop at different rates, but they
may develop more quickly in some of the areas mentioned and be slower to
develop in other areas.
