Topic 2: Infant Development
An infant’s ability to develop consistent and predictable responses to internal and external stimuli during the first year of life is influenced by physical growth, brain development, the surrounding environment and the actions of the infant’s caregivers (Trevarthen & Aitken, 2001). Identify developmental behaviors (developmental red flags) of an infant that would require an in-depth assessment as referral for a developmental evaluation.
Discuss the anticipatory guidance that you would give to each child’s parents.
