    Childhood Development in One Year

  • Perceptual: Visual

    From 0-7 days from birth, a baby is a very competant learner. They recognize faces and features while observing people and surroundings.
  • Step Reflex

    If you hold baby upright and let baby's feet touch a firm surface and your newborn will mimic a stepping action. This has nothing to do with actual walking.
  • Grasp Reflex

    Baby grasps anything that is placed into their fist. For example if you were to stroke your tot's palm with your finger, your baby will catch you by surprise and clench it quite tightly.
  • Rooting Reflex

    This is considered a basic instinct as it helps baby feed. Rooting reflex helps the newborn to find the breast or bottle and suck it. When the baby's mouth or cheek is stroked, it responds by 'rooting' or turning and opening its mouth in the direction of the finger. This reflex continues for a few months until baby is able to turn voluntarily.
  • Perceptual: Auditory

    An infant turning his head to the sound of a familiar voice or surrounding sound.
  • Raise Head: Physical

    At 2 months, a child can raise their head to 45 degrees.
  • Crying: Language

    From birth to 3 months, a child's way of communicating is to cry.
  • Sucking Reflex

    When you touch the roof of baby's mouth, its natural instinct will be to suck. Sucking reflex is not fully developed in premature babies and that is why the problems with feeding.
  • Roll Over: Physical

    At 2.8 months, a child can roll over.
  • Sit: Physical

    At four months, a child can sit up with support.
  • Sit: Physical

    At 5.5 months, a child can sit without support.
  • Babbling: Language

    From 4 to 6 months, your child's language will blossom from cooing to full fledged babbling.
  • Startle Reflex

    Also called the Moro reflex, it is baby's response to noise and sudden movements. Baby will react by throwing back its head, extending its legs and arms with fingers outstretched, and cry to basically prevent him from falling. The baby will then pull back its arms and legs. The amazing thing is babies can be startled by their own cries.
  • Tonic Neck Reflex

    When you turn baby's head to the side, the arm on that side extends out and the arm opposite bends at the elbow.
  • Stand: Physcial

    At 7.6 months, a child can pul themselves to an upright position.
  • Perceptual: Motor Competance

    As infants develop increasing motor competence, they use perceptual information to inform their choices about which motor actions to take. Such as adjusting to the slipperyness of a floor or ground.
  • Increased Babbling: Language

    From 7 to 9 months, your child's babbling will escalade to an increased babbling that will sound more and more like a real language.
  • Walk: Physical

    At 9.2 months, a child can walk holding onto furniture.
  • Creep: Physcial

    At 10 months, a child can creep.
  • Stand: Physical

    At 11.5 months, a child can stand on their own.
  • First Word: Language

    By 11 to 12 months, your child should begin to speak. Usually by one year, a child can say up to 3-5 words.
  • Walk: Physical

    At 12.1 months, a child can walk alone.
  • Babinski Reflex

    Try stroking baby's foot and the big toe will bend toward the top of the foot and the other toes will fan or spread out. This reflex goes on for about 2 years
