Growth & Development of Children

Growth & Development of Children

Neurologic tissues (spinal cords and brain - mature by 2-5 years) and lymphoid tissue (spleen, thymus, lymph nodes & tonsils) grown fastly during infancy & childhood. The reproductive system shows little growth until puberty. There are several principals of growth & development:

Growth and development are continuous processes from the day we are conceived until death.

Growth and development proceed in an arranged sequence.

Different children pass through the predictable stages at different rates.

All body systems do not develop at the same rate.

Development is cephalocaudal (from head to toe).

Development proceeds from proximal to distal body parts.

Development proceeds from gross to refined motor skills.

There is an optimum time for initiation of experiences or learning.

Neonatal reflexes must be lost before development can proceed

A great deal of skill and behavior is learned by practice.
