changes that occur across a lifespan; growth and maturation refers to? Development
Age-related process of change in motor behavior that occur across the lifespan refers to? Motor Development
Is motor development age-dependent? no
When referring to motor development, behavior is dependent on what? change
Change in size, form, and proportion is the definition for? Growth
Qualitative changes in the underlying neurological structures that enable individuals to function at a higher level refers to ? Maturation
Is maturation genetically pre-determined? yes
Process of acquiring a skill or knowledge is called? Learning
The maturational theory of development was proposed by? Darwin, Gesell, Bayley
The environmental theory of development was proposed by? Skinner
The interactional theory of development was proposed by? Piaget, McGraw
The life Span theory of development was proposed by? Van Sant
Nature vs. Nurture,All development follows a genetic blueprint,‘ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny’,and Development of the individual parallels the development of the species are all characteristics of which theory of development? Maturational theory
‘ontogeny recapitulates phylogeny’ was presented by which theorist? Darwin
Who theorized that motor development was controlled by genetics and environment had little influence? Gessell
Who is Credited with pioneering the concepts of developmental milestones and the domains, e.g. gross and fine motor, personal & social? Gessell
Who is th psychologist that said motor behavior is a ‘window’ of the mind that indicates intelligence? Bayley
genetics is a blueprint, environment is opportunity, and development occurs in a predicted order are characteristics of which theory of development? Environmental theory

interpretation of new information on the past is? assimilation
adjusting behavior for the future is? accommodation
adjusting to demands of the environment is? Adaptation
