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

Sequence is the order that development happens in.

Rate is the speed that it happens.

eg: sequence = a baby’s physical development may begin with rolling over then sit up, crawl, walk, 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.

rate = where one baby may achieve walking unaided at 10 months another may accomplish it at 12 months another at 16 months.
