Systems Theories

Question1: Generality of development changes

Development changes are generally in such a way that cognitive structures of a certain a stage are replicated in all domains. Precisely, children usually do not have concepts trait of a certain stage which they apply constantly across various activities (Bahrick, 2016. However, changes in the cognitive system do not change the entire cognitive system rather; children appear to have an intelligible understanding of that is exclusive to a specific domain (Bahrick, 2016). This understanding is obtained from the experience from that specific domain. Moreover, all development changes are influenced by significant factors of daily life like physical objects properties.

Question 2: Complex and dynamic change

Complex and dynamic change can be efficiently captured theoretically by analyzing the connection that exists among development characteristics, biological and environmental factors that influence development change (Bahrick, 2016). This is facilitated by application of physics and mathematics while relating to biology to ensure understanding of developmental changes (Bahrick, 2016). To effectively capture Complex and dynamic change theoretically, the interrelations, action and coherent understanding of all development domains are vital.

Question 3: Theories prediction for long-term development

Theories have facilitated the prediction of long-term development. With the aid of technological development has increased the capacity of computers to handle complex calculations as well as statistical models which help in the identification of the path of causes involving two-way directions (Bahrick, 2016). Theories are applied in computers as models. Moreover, they identify moderating variables, for instance, efficient parenting, which influences the child’s development. Additionally, these models are capable of testing the variables. Results, obtained from these tests are able to predict the child’s long-term development (Bahrick, 2016). Such complex models predict and clarify the long-term developmental processes that occur in both atypical and typical development of a child.
