Just what are the aims of Child Development?...

aims of child development

Child development is how your child grows through progression of developmental milestones. All children follow the same sequence of growth and development and within the same wide timetables.

Though the pattern is widely the same for all children but it is necessary to know that every child is unique and will progress at his/her own individual speed.

The main areas of child development are inter-related which are language, communication, feelings, relationships and various cultural elements that every child is brought up which influences his/her development.

Special needs children mostly seem to be delayed at the development ladder thus moving through developmental stages in an unusual and very thorough ways. For instance, they might sit or walk at the normal age, but would not talk at the normal way.
