Ashford 3: - Week 2 - Discussion 1
Your initial discussion thread is due on Day 3 (Thursday) and you have until Day 7 (Monday) to respond to your classmates. Your grade will reflect both the quality of your initial post and the depth of your responses. Reference the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for guidance on how your discussion will be evaluated.
Watch the following videos, Child Development Milestones and How I Learn: Child Development Milestones and relate the developmental milestones in the videos to your reading in the course text. Assess critical periods in the cognitive and psychosocial development of children from birth to three years of age. If a parent of a two year old child asked you what to do because the child was not speaking in sentences like their older sibling did, what advice would you give the parent? Why would you give this specific advice? What other explanations might be given in this situation and why would you choose to not provide those to the parent? Your initial response should be between 200-250 words.
In your responses to at least two peers, please provide an extension of the opinion expressed, a counter opinion, or another example from research applicable to the opinion expressed.
