Explain how the ecological model and developmental niche combine to effect you from infancy to early adult hood.
According to psychologist, despite the different but converging meaning of development, it can be argued that this is a lifelong process. There are five environmental; factors that influence the development of a child and this include; micro systems, mediation systems, external systems, macro system and time system. The theory in ecological model attempts to explain how a child’s unique nature and its environment contributes his growth and development. This paper therefore will significantly discuss how these two phenomena go hand in hand to help shape a child’s growth and development by describing at length each sub theory and giving its relevance to the scope of this paper.
