The difference between rate and sequence of development and why the difference is important.

Sequenced Development
There is a definite pattern to a child developing e.g. a toddler being able to walk before they can run. Another may sit up, walk, run missing out rolling over & crawling. Even though elements are missed the development still proceeds in what's viewed as an expected pattern. Sequenced development also involves patterns and an order of development of intellectual growth - sequence can include an order that's both positive and negative deterioration.
Rate Of Development
Rate involves a time frame linked to age in which a child develops. An example is where one baby may achieve walking independently at 10 months, but another may be able to at 12 months and another at 16 months.

If a child develops by sequencing it enables the carer to plan effectively and at the right time. When recording the rate of development it helps you to identify any concerns that you may have within the development area, this enables you to further investigate why this is happening.
Why is it important?
It is important to know the difference between the sequence and the rate of development as it helps to identify the Child's needs during the stages of their school years. It is crucial to plan effectively ensuring the child receives the support they need in the areas they find most difficult in.
