3.2 Explain the reason why children and young people's development may not follow the expected pattern. Disability: Resources, equipment, facilities.

Here's what a teacher thought of this essay

3 star(s)

This essay states the factors that influence development well. They are all covered and clear in their description. However to reach higher mark bands - it needs to explain how the factors affect development. This should then be applied to the case study. Some attempt is made at the case study but it needs more explanation of how it affects development.

To extend and reach top mark band - a little research into theories would help to give understanding of child development and allow greater depth of understanding.
