School children

The period of elementary school typically spans from the ages of 6-7 years, when a child starts elementary school, to 11-12 years, when the first signs of sexual puberty emerge along with psychological changes.

Throughout the elementary school period, there is constant development in all areas. Physical growth is rapid, with noticeable differences between boys and girls in skeletal structure and muscle development. Children lose baby teeth and their thinking becomes more concrete and logical. Vocabulary and memory expand, and independence is strengthened. Sensory perception also improves.

Elementary school marks a significant shift in a child's life as they become immersed in the school environment. It is during this time that any existing brain disorders may become more apparent, such as ADHD and specific learning disorders like dyslexia, dysgraphia, dysorthography, dyscalculia, and dyspraxia.
