Running Head: GROWTH AND DEVELOPMENT ASSESSMENT OF THREE-YEAR-OLD CHILD
Introduction to the Subject
The subject chosen for the assessment is a three-year-old kid, living in a semi-urban setting
with her parents and the grandparents. The community values of the locality are very strong
and this is why kid gets this ample opportunity to interact with the members of the locality on
a regular basis. One year ago this kid joined a Pre-school where they try to teach a few things
with the help of the play way learning methods. In the current assignment, we will focus on
the physical, cognitive and psychosocial development of the kid in accordance with his age.
We will try to critically analyze his growth on the merits of certain psychological theories,
conditions and assess the impact of internal, physical and external factors to summarize a
report. The scope of this report will be confined to a general observation because we will not
get access to systematic data (Low,2010).
Physical attributes
On the day of observation, the weight of the kid is approximately 22 pounds, which is slightly
below the normal range, the same thing can be said about the height of the kid (Apperly,
2010). When we check the kid on the some of the milestones prescribed for the age we find
that his motor skills are par with the standards, he can hold a knife or a pen with the right
grip, though he cannot write anything or draw meaningful things, still, he can hold it easily.
He can hold lightweight glasses and bottles; similarly, he can hold a ball and throw it in any
given direction He can run swiftly without toppling, he can climb on the stairs without any
help. He has the capacity to hold the twist caps of the bottles (Hood, 2014).
The yardstick given by the Piaget theory defines the physical development of a kid with the
help of two factors, the first factor is critical assimilation of the events and the second factor
