Abstract

When the human infant enters the world he or she is totally dependent on others for the provision of food, warmth and protection. With maturation comes increasing confidence in motor coordination, and by 14 months most infants are able to walk unaided even though it will be several years before they gain independence and acquire the many skills and abilities that most adults take for granted.
