Open Access Graduate Research Paper
There is a variation in the way children adjust to school as they enter with different levels of maturation. A basic factor in understanding the nature of children is the recognition that every child.is unique. Children are born with genetic variations that predispose them to be different in appearance, temperament, growth patterns and learning style. All of these factors are interrelated and interdependent and function as a unit to produce unique personalities. In terms of promoting competence, individuality dictates a tolerance and understanding of learning differences, a variety of approaches to teaching and learning in the classroom or at home, a knowledge of children and a respect for their uniqueness. Each child is more proficient in some areas and less proficient in others. Individual differences must be recognized in terms of cognition and in terms of values, ethnic variation, life styles and personalities.
