The five developmental periods

The five developmental periods are the following, infancy, early childhood, middle childhood, early adolescence, and finally late adolescence. The five developmental periods are important factors in the growth of a child. In the category of infancy it includes the age from birth up until two years old. During the infancy time period the child develops nonverbal communication, language expression, and the learning things, people, and places. In the category of early childhood it includes children from two years old to six years old. According to McDevitt & Ormrod, 2004 early childhood is a period of fantasy, play, wonder, and creativity. the third category middle childhood is when the child is 6 years old to 10 years old. During this time the child focuses more on the real world issues and focuses less on fantasy. McDevitt and Ormrod say “children also begin to compare their performances to others.” The fourth category is called early adolescence. In this category the child is from ten years old to fourteen years old. During this time the child is focused on what other peers think of them. During this time they may also start physical changes such as puberty. The last phase is called the late adolescent. During this time the child is from fourteen years old to eighteen years old. During this time the child is making decisions. Children at this also consider being in relationship a high priority.

    It's hard to write a paper in that limited amount of words, but this is good. The part I would change a little is with the early adolescence. "During this time, the child is making choices." That's characteristic of ALL ages. A word or two that is more specific about what choices they make would be helpful.
