Introduction

Intellectual development Infancy. When does it start? Infant intellectual development begins when our baby is in the womb. These inputs come in the form of hearing, seeing and along with taste, touch and smell your baby learns the skills needed for a sharp intellect that lasts a lifetime. Infants from birth to the age of 6 months: Focuses on moving objects with their eyes. Has a different cry to express hunger, pain and anger. Babbles coo and gurgle. Turn to locate the sources of sounds. Study their hands and feet. Forget about objects they cannot see. Explore things by putting them in their mouth. The infants can play.

Some adults come across as rude. Adulthood is the time you express how you feel and put it in words. People have rated adulthood the best time of their lifes. That so much happens and you learn much more in adulthood. Later Adulthood Intellectual changes in late adulthood do not always result in reduction of ability. While fluid intelligence does decline in later years, crystallized intelligence has been shown to rise slightly over the entire life span The elderly tend to lose their memerory and become more self conscious. Some elderly people even forget their kids. The later adulthood is one of the stages where your mind shuts down, sometimes it can be caused by an illness that cannot be helped, or sometimes it is just caused by old age.
