Examples of developmental in a Sentence

  1. George Dimopoulos:

    The problem is that these GM mutants have a fitness cost, current studies are addressing this issue, trying to find ways of making these mosquitoes as competitive as the wild type. One way of perhaps doing this is to inactivate the parasite-host factor, FREP1, in the adult female gut only, as opposed to the entire mosquito at all developmental stages. One can also integrate our strategy with a so-called gene-drive to more effectively drive the mutation into a mosquito population.

  2. Sophia Laurent Abraham:

    You learn it's never ok to shame a child. I don't know how good of a mother Chrissy Teigen is going to be, you cannot bully. You cannot hurt people from the core. There's a lot of developmental things she's really got to work through if you can't apologize for things and be a responsible adult.

  3. Amy Brown:

    It should also be noted that if your baby has developmental difficulties or has had very slow weight gain, then you should talk to your health professional before starting solids as a baby-led approach might not be appropriate, what is of central importance is feeding your baby responsively; looking to them for signs of hunger and fullness, and not trying to get them to finish a portion if they do not want to. This applies whether you are spoon-feeding or letting babies self-feed, and indeed is important during milk feeding and for older children, too. Offer a range of tastes, varieties, and textures and let your baby eat as much as they need.

  4. Jayne Dixon Weber:

    When the kids are young, Randi Hagerman’re kind of hypersensitive to what other people think, i ’m past that now, and I ’m thankful that I am. What’s up next ? Medications helpful in treating Fragile X syndrome are a portal to understanding and developing treatments for other intellectual disabilities as well, including autism, Randi Hagerman said. As for Ian, Jayne Dixon Weber said if he continues working at the food store and stays active within his community, he will continue to grow and learn. Despite his developmental delays, Ian’s energy and attitude work in his favor.

  5. Jenny Radesky:

    The advice that I would give to parents is that if they are worrying about their child having some sleep problems, they should consult a specialist, in many cases, these parental worries are indeed part of a normative developmental stage( such as, for example, their child waking up a few times during the night, or having problems falling asleep) but still it would be beneficial to know that, and parents could feel more relaxed ; but in other cases, these are indeed part of a developmental problem.
