Intellectual Development in Adolescence

(Ages 9-18)
Steph Bettis, Daniel Charles, Emma Fraser, Afra Shafiq
Milestones
What are Milestones?
Milestones are general stages at which individuals are expected to have developed to a certain extent.
The actual specifics of this development increase depend on the milestone.
Why are they important?
Milestones are important as they show if an individual is developing correctly or not.
Any individual who is not developing in accordance with the milestones can be seen as not progressing properly.
Intellectual Development Milestones
Listed below are the typical intellectual development milestones that occur in adolescence between the ages of 9 and 12, otherwise know as the concrete operational stage (not including years 7 and 8)
9 Years
Child's speech is almost at adult level.
Able to form complex sentences.
Able to think more independently.
Can perform simply maths operations such as addition and subtraction.
11 Years
Increased attention span and concentration.
Strong opinions.
Start to understand people's motives (not fully).
12 Years
Have a developed ability for complex thoughts.
Become better at expressing feelings through talking.
Intellectual Development Milestones (continued)
Listed below are the typical intellectual development milestones that occur in adolescence between the ages of 13 and 16 and between the ages of 17 and 18.
13-16 Years
17-18 Years
Tend to think about the present rather than the future.
Tend to think abstractly.
Arguing skills improve.
Reasoning skills improve.
Start to set personal goals.
Develop solutions to various problems.
Develop the ability to distinguish fact from fiction.
Show more concern about school life and the future.
Learn more defined work habits.
Give reasons for their own choices including what is right and wrong.
Whiteboard Challenge
1. Name two factors of development in the milestone range of 13-16 years old.
2. What age range is the concrete operational stage?
Intellectual development is your ability to think about and understand the processes and aspects of life around you.

Early experiences and challenges lay the foundations for future intellectual development which will get better as individuals get older and learn more.

A theorist called Jean Piaget suggested that not all adolescents will achieve abstract thinking as part of their intellectual development.

What affects Intellectual Development?
As with any form of development in individuals, certain factors may have a positive or negative affect on the rate and amount of development that occurs.

Such factors may include:
Lack of stimulation:
If a 9 year old is not stimulated enough then they will not be able to perform simple maths operations like the milestone for that age suggests.
Pre-existing mental problems:
If an individual has any existing mental problems then this may hider or completely stop their ability to develop intellectually.
Hold up your answer to each question on a whiteboard!
A: 6-7
B: 7-10
C: 7-12
Environment:
Individuals that come from a wealthier background may receive more intellectual stimulation. The same can be said for those who attend school regularly over those who don't.
3. Name a factor that may have a negative affect on intellectual development.
