Milestones

Purpose

To check how a child grows (physically, mentally, and socially)

To determine what children can do at a certain age

To gain knowledge of certain developmental issues that could be helped

Reasons:

To have an insight on how children are developing at certain ages

In the far future, I want to be a parent

Research and worry now, so I can feel prepared and have certain expectations with my kids

Motor Skills

Two different types of motor skills:

gross and fine

Ex. Crawling, running, swimming, etc.

Fine motor skills are movements made from the hands, wrists, and fingers

Ex. Writing, holding small items, etc.

“Toddler Reading Milestones”

This article provides parents information that will be beneficial to building their toddlers’ vocabulary, comprehension, imagination and creativity

When an infant reaches their toddler stage, it would be helpful if

parents read, point out, and describe the pictures

Narrating the story over and over again would allow kids to relate

and connect what they hear to the words on the pages

As a result of reading the printed words from books, older toddlers will eventually recognize names, signs, and labels

“Toddler Reading

Milestones” Continue

Through observing different various levels and genres of books, toddlers can catch on the basic structures necessary for a book

Can acquire knowledge of a setting, characters, series of problems,

and solutions to those problems

Alphabet books do not really have the sole purpose of teaching the little ones the alphabet

It helps them familiarize themselves with the letters, their sounds, and their shapes

“Ages & Stages: How

Children Develop Motor Skills”

The article gave reasons why children perform certain activities when they reach the correlated age range

Spending time on the floor or a flat surface can help a child

develop their balance, muscle strength, and body coordination

By the time the baby reaches their many weeks of practicing, they are now able to reach and grasp objects, roll over, and support

themselves much easier than when they started to learn before

When they sit and reach, their back muscles are now strong enough to support their body

“Ages & Stages: How Children Develop Motor Skills” Cont.

Environment plays a major role in helping a child develop their motor skills

Necessary to have a wide range of open spaces so infants can

easily maneuver around without harming themselves

Carpeted steps, short inclines, and sturdy chairs would introduce spatial relationships as well as moving in certain directions

Important to not tire or frustrate the child with activities that

require too much hand-eye coordination and intense concentration

Disorders and Treatment

“Child and

Developmental Disorders”

This article discusses about specific developmental disorders or delays associated with

pediatric mental growth and the symptoms that would help parents know what signs to look for in their child if they are suspicious of their behavior

Reading Disorder

The essential symptom that shows for a delay in reading is when children fail to meet the expectations of the reading standards

Treatment: constant practice

Stuttering

Symptom: if their fluency and time patterning of speech does not correlate well with their age and would try to avoid situations where they need to speak

Treatment: speech therapy

Current Event

“Toddler Development Delayed by Too Much Screentime, Research Suggests” by Chiara Giordano

Elaborates on the concept that children around the age of two to

three-years-old are scoring lower on tests when they are five-years- old due to an overuse of technology

Encouraged for health professionals to work with parents to create media plans that would limit the amount of time kids should and should not be on their devices

Connects to pediatric development since technology is inhibiting

their educational learning
