Assessment of Development in Children

The development of a child is studied through various responses which he exhibits following a natural or experimental stimulus. Basically the child development could be studied in two ways.

i) Through Observations: Behaviour of children is recorded through observations in relation to natural environment.

ii) Through Experimental Methods: Experiments are designed to elicit and record a behaviour response to a particular stimulus.

Developmental assessment can be divided into four areas: gross motor, fine motor, adaptive language and personal social behaviour. You have learnt the developmental milestones of children in various age groups.
