Q. I need information on the different developmental domains and how they are related.

We were learning about PILES (the physical, intellectual, language, emotional, and social) domains in class. I need to talk about how they are interrelated.


To find information on the developmental domains, you might want to check one of our online reference collections. Credo would be a good place to start because it contains a couple of child development encyclopedias like the Cambridge Encyclopedia of Child Development and the Handbook of Research on the Education of Young Children.

Once you get to Credo, use the search box to search for the specific developmental domain you are wanting more information on:

  • Motor development
  • Cognitive development
  • Speech development
  • Emotional development
  • Language development

You can find more information about PILES in the School of Early Childhood Education Guide. View the helpful table below:
