  • Psycho Dynamic Approach - in terms of child development, presents the most coherent theory of development, tying its concepts and processes to specific stages determined by age.
    • Comparison of Approaches
      • Cognitive Approach - stage theories have contributed to our understanding of child development. E.g. children can form increasingly complex concepts as they get older as part of their intellectual development.
      • Biological Approach - maturation is an important principle where genetically determined changes in a childs physiological status influence psychological health.
      • Behaviourist Approach and SLT - Does not offer coherent stage theories of development but instead see the processes that underpin learning as continuous, occuring at any stage.
