Toddlers (1-3 years of age)
Created by: Oscar L, Asianna W
Toddlers from the age of 1-2 at this time are becoming more responsive, they're becoming more familiar with their surroundings and are able to imitate actions. 2-3 years of age the toddler is learning more by exploring themselves. They learn about 9 new words a day. Which makes them more able to not only know a language, but speak it more rapidly. Also at this age they are able to recount an event that has happened that day, being more open to responding to direction.
At this age children become more aware of themselves. Now they're more likely to start conversations with others and become more involved. At this point in time they also experience more assertive behavior, becoming more prone to give directions. By 2-3 they are now demonstrating sudden mood shifts such as being afraid of the dark. Also by this time they are showing more aggressive behavior. They begin self evaluation which may cause them to want to be alone.
Around this age children start to be able to run and jump and gain more balance and better eye-hand coordination. By this time the child is better at movement, and is more comfortable with walking on their own. They should also be able to manipulate objects like balls and hold pencils.
Around 1 children become more aware of themselves and their ability to make things happen. At this stage, most children are capable of recognizing themselves in pictures and in the mirror, show affection and play themselves. By the age of 3 children should be able to un/dress themselves. They should also be able to address themselves: attractive/unattractive. They also will show assertion with others. And may want to be by themselves or interact with others.
