My Early Childhood Development Philosophy 2 My Early Childhood Development Philosophy My name is (student name). I earned an Associate of Arts degree majoring in Information Technology with an emphasis in Networking from the University of Phoenix in July, 2014.

He has no problem grasping toys from the ground and maneuvering them in whatever way he pleases. The child did seem to have a small delay in his language development from what I could observe in this short video. I only observed him speaking one word clearly in the video, which was dog.
