Social Relationships
-comfortable with mother
-expand infant’s world to include other adults
-adults must live up to standards of reliability that exists between mother and baby
Temperament Style
-observable traits or patterns of behaviour of an individual; the way the individual

-sleep defined as quiet (sleep), active (alert), and indeterminate (neither sleep nor alert)
Developmental Domains
Physical Development
-fine motor skills:
-not precise, but with time and practice become more controlled
-gross motor skills:
-cephalocaudal/proximodistal sequences
-spend month exercising muscles while their brains learn and retain information
necessary to reach milestone
-children who have cognitive challenged often have delayed physical skills
-myelination begins in the ninth month of gestation and continues for years
-reflexes:
-outward sign of neurological pathways in the brain that allow for later
development
-some actions develop from reflexes
