Growth is the process of how an individual change physically and how it will be learned as he or she grows up maturely. And this change is usually occurs between conception and death in permanence in human’s life. The period of human growth from birth to adolescence is usually divided into the following stages. Infancy: From birth to weaning, Childhood, from weaning to the end of brain growth, Juvenile: From the end of childhood to adolescence.
Adolescence: From the start of growth spurt at puberty until sexual maturity.


Development Development means a progression from a simpler or lower to a more advanced, mature, or complex form or stage. It is also defined as the gradual advancement or growth through a series of progressive changes. Development is a process, not a level it is a lane to achieve certain goals.
Development norms:
The term developmental norms is relate to individuals change and capacities. Developmental norms are standards by which the progress of an individual’s can be measured. For example the normal age at which children are meant to walks, talk, or adolescent to reach puberty age will be define by the developmental norms standard age given.

Developmental milestones: A developmental milestone is an ability that is achieved by most children by a certain age. Developmental milestones can involve physical, social, emotional, cognitive and communication skills such as walking, sharing with others, expressing emotions, recognising familiar sounds and talking.

The life course is refers to an approach developed to analyse people's lives within structural, social, and cultural contexts from birth through to adulthood, middle age and beyond. It also the way to understand population, life course has many benefits such as studies for problems associated with longevity.
Maturation is the process of learning to cope and react in an emotionally appropriate way. It does not necessarily happen along with aging or physical growth, but is a part of growth and development. A situation a person must deal with at a young age prepares them for the next and so on into adulthood. Maturation does not stop when physical growth ends - it continues through adulthood. An adult who loses a parent, for instance, learns to cope with a new emotional situation that will affect the way he or she deals with situations that follow.

Life expectancy: Life expectancy it is the average number of years to be lived by a group of people born in the same year, if mortality at each age remains constant in the future. For example Life expectancy at birth is also a measure of overall quality of life in a country and reviews the mortality at all ages.
Holistic development:
Holistic development means that each area is dependent on the other to ensure an individual develops to their full potential. Although development is described as different areas: Physical, social, emotional, language and intellectual, each area needs to connect in order for individuals to develop. For example an individual might be highly intellectual and then be unable to butter bread. This isn't because is incapable of buttering bread, it just has not had the chance to practice the physical skill.
Delayed development:
Developmental delay is any significant lag in a child's physical, cognitive, behavioural, emotional, or social development, in comparison with norms. Developmental delay refers to when a child's development lags behind established normal ranges for his or her age. Sometimes the term is used for mental retardation, which is not a delay in development but rather a permanent limitation.

Unit 4:p2 explain potential effects of five different life factors on the development of an individual. Biological, socio economic .environmental,
Biological factors
Effects of diet in pregnancy
Diet during pregnancy may have effects on the health of the child that become apparent later in life. A poor pregnancy diet can lead to various nutritional deficiencies. During pregnancy, mum to be need plenty of folic acid, calcium and iron. This is to ensure that body’s needs are not compromised in order to meet the calcium needs of the baby. Iron is important because body needs it to make the haemoglobin that transports oxygen to body and to foetus. Folic acid prevents foetus from developing defects of the spine and spinal cord. For example inadequate nutrition during pregnancy can lead to a difficult pregnancy, labour difficulties and a slower recovery. Pregnant women who are overweight or obese have a greater risk for developing diabetes, hypertension, or needing a caesarean section delivery. Proper nutrition can keep labour from commencing too early. Having a healthy body may also make the long, intensive labour process a little easier. Proper nutrition can also help mum to be recovery after childbirth

Infections during pregnancy Rubella is caused by the rubella virus, which is spread in much the same way as a cold or the flu. Rubella does not usually require medical treatment as the symptoms will normally pass within 7-10 days. The only time that rubella becomes a serious concern is if mum to be cached the disease during the first four months of pregnancy it can seriously affect the unborn baby’s sight and hearing, and cause brain and heart defects. Once a person has had rubella they should develop a life-long immunity against further infection.

Environmental factors
Pollution factors
Air pollution can affect our health in many ways with both short-term and long-term effects. Different groups of individuals are affected by air pollution in different ways. Some individuals are much more sensitive to pollutants than are others. Young children and elderly people often suffer more from the effects of air pollution. People with health problems such as asthma, heart and lung disease may also suffer more when the air is polluted. For examples of short-term effects include irritation to the eyes, nose and throat, and respiratory infections such as bronchitis and pneumonia.
Long-term health effects can include chronic respiratory disease, lung cancer, heart disease, and even damage to the brain, nerves, liver, or kidneys. Continual exposure to air pollution affects the lungs of growing children and may aggravate or complicate medical conditions in the elderly. And all those air pollution can be a result of smoking cigarettes, Motors, cars, train, buses and other means of transport produce a range of air pollution, which include carbon monoxide and nitrogen oxides. People who live close to these means of transport will be exposed to this pollution.
Housing factors

A good personal hygiene and preparation storage of food, will depend of environment provide to the family and others. Poor quality housing has a harmful effect on the health of the people living in those houses and on the quality of life in an area.

Social economic factors
Low income
For a child, growing up in poverty is about much more than just having a low income. Its can have really bad effect on the child and is often very long-lasting. Poverty limits children’s opportunity to reach their full potential, and disadvantage is often handed down from generation to generation, poor children often end up being poor adults. Limited educational resources, a poor home learning environment, poor physical and mental health and family instability all contribute to limiting children’s opportunities and aspiration. For children in households where nobody works, the problems of low income are often combined with parents’ poor mental health and a lack of positive working role models. Parents who themselves grew up in poverty sometimes find it difficult to support their children’s educational and cognitive development.
Smoking Smoking can causes cell damage, which can lead to illnesses, such as cancer, heart disease and asthma .smoking also can link to poor wound healing and premature aging of the skin. Smoking stops our body absorbing vitamin C and other nutrients. The only way to avoid this damage is to stop smoking and better still, avoid starting in the first place.

Unit 4:p3 explain the influence of two predicable and two unpredictable major life events on the development of an individual.
Major life events can be positive and negative or disagreeable, terrifying, unclear and dangerous at the same times. Disagreeable things happens to everyone is doesn’t matter if predictable or unpredictable. We normally try to control, organise and learning to cope with challenge in life, managing with physical changes.

...Taking part in a group discussion involves the same issues as one to one communication as well as some additional issues. Group communication: Communication in groups can also be influenced by the degree to which people feel they belong together. One of the best-known theorists to explain group information stages is Tuckman. (1965) Tuckman suggested that most groups go through a process involving four stages. These are: * Forming * Storing * Norming * Performing Tuckman’s theory focuses on the way a group of people work to become a team. The first stage is about how people meet for the first time and when they share information. The second stage involves tension, struggle and sometimes arguments about how the group may function. The third stage is about the group coming together and agreeing on their group values. Group values are when group members share a common system of beliefs or values in order for the group to communicate and perform effectively. Once they have established their common expectations and values, the group will reach the fourth stage of being an effective performing group. Furthermore, the theory SOLER was created by a man ‘Egan’. His theory shows that basic non-verbal communication can help make a person feel involved and cared for when working with another person. SOLER is a non-verbal listening method that is used commonly in communication. SOLER means: S: Face squarely; by doing this it shows that a service provider is......

(P1) Operant conditioning is a type of behavior modification which can be used to either decrease or increase the likelihoods of a certain aspect of a behavior will occur. The process relies on the idea that organisms (a person) respond to stimuli, and that if they can be taught to associate a specific stimulus with a particular behavior, they will be more likely to engage in or avoid the behavior, depending on the type of stimulus involved. This approach first came to notice B.F Skinner (s famous psychologist) were of his work was carried out in the 20th centaury. His work was mainly with the use of rats and pigeons to us e them to discover new ways of leering style and behaviors.

...digestion. The forms of energy comes in three; kinetic energy, chemical energy and potential energy. Chemical energy is the main source of energy for our body. Chemical energy is the bond which unites atoms or molecules with each other. When a new bond is produced between two atoms, energy is needed for its formation and this is mainly in the form of heat but can be light or electrical energy. When a bond is broken and the atoms are free, the energy in the bond is released. Potential energy is stored energy, which is then converted into kinetic energy. Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. There are a few types of different energy and these are: chemical, heat, sound, light, electrical and mechanical. There are ‘two laws’ of energy, the first law states that energy cannot be created or destroyed, this is the conservation law. The second law states that energy can be transformed from one form to another, this is the transformation law. Energy is need to circulate blood, lymph and tissue fluid throughout the body; it is used for breathing and taking in oxygen; needed for making new cells for carrying out growth and repair; it is needed to transmit nerve impulses so that we can respond to changes in the environment and it is needed to build different complex molecules such as enzymes and hormones from the simple molecules which are made after digestion of food.

This can depend on where they are from, if they have any disabilities, their profession, or their age. In Health and Social care, different communication will be used in different settings (care homes, hospitals etc.) One-to-one When talking one-to-one with somebody, it works in a three-stage process. This is greeting, conversation and then farewells. When doing one-to-one, gestures, facial expressions and body language would be used more because they’re being watched more than if they’re in a group, for example. Both parties want to feel relaxed, so a calming tone would be used. If not, it could feel like an awkward conversation between both the people.

This taught the rat that pressing the lever would remove the undesirable electric current. Punishment is when something undesirable is received after a certain behaviour in order to make that behaviour stop. Punishment is used to prevent bad behaviour. The Social Learning Theory was devised by Albert Bandura (1977); he states that, “behavior is learned from the environment through the process of observational learning.” (McLeod, 2011) Unlike Skinner, Bandura believed that humans learn by processing information and they consider the consequences of their actions to make decisions on their behaviour; Bandura argued that observational learning does not occur with the absence of cognitive processes which contribute to decisions regarding our behaviour. Bandura proposed the idea that young children have various models (parents and other members in the family, for example siblings or cousins, children’s television characters, teachers and nursery nurses, and peers within their friendship groups)......
