Motor development in babies creates excitement among parents who enjoy seeing their child learn new skills. Motor, social, cognitive, and language competencies develop together and support one another. In this discussion we will explore these concepts further.
As you create your discussion post, consider the following:
- Which types of developmental toys have you given your children, if you have any? If you do not have children reflect upon developmental toys that you have seen or would give a child. Are these age appropriate? Is the parent the only person responsible for a child’s development?
By the end of this discussion, you will be able to:
- Explain why developmental toys are essential for a child’s development and which types of toys are appropriate.
Complete the following:
First, visit www.fisherprice.com/us, which presents suggested toys and activities for babies according to their age and developmental level. Select two age ranges and answer the following questions: What developmental information is presented for each age range? Is it consistent with research presented in the text (Chapter Four)? How do the recommended toys appeal to infants’ and toddlers’ developing learning capacities? How about perceptual development? Using what you know about stimulation, are the toys appropriate for the age range? Why or why not? Be sure to include in your response information from the textbook or other psychology-specific sources.
