Adolescence—the transition from childhood to adulthood--is one of the most dynamic stages of human development. It is a time of marked physical, emotional, and intellectual changes, as well as changes in social roles, relationships and expectations.
Adolescents are not just teenagers. Adolescents and young adults include 10-24 year olds in three developmental stages: early adolescence (10-14 years of age), middle adolescence (15-17 years of age), late adolescence and young adulthood (18-24 years of age).
