Difference between Growth and Development: 

• Growth is measurable while development is not measurable. Development can be felt and observed only. 

• The growth stops after a certain age whereas development of the body continues till death. 

• Growth and development are related to each other. When a body grows in size, there is an increase in his capacity to do work. But sometimes development takes place without growth, e.g., If the physical growth is stunned, the person may have better mental, social and other developments.
