Milestones of Physical Development Presentation

[WLOs: 2, 3] [CLOs: 1, 3, 4]

As an early childhood education professional, it’s important for you to understand typical development of young children and signs to recognize when a child may not be developing as expected.  For this assignment, you will develop a presentation to be shared with colleagues and volunteers who may work in your classroom or learning center. Your presentation will include information about the important developmental milestones of children from birth through age 8. You will also be sharing how children’s physical development is connected to the overall well-being of the child. Finally, you will also discuss signs that a child may be delayed in development.
