Introduction

Visit Number- 1 Age of Child- Place- My house Time- 2.00pm People Present- Harris's parents, my mother and me Aims of the Visit As this is my first visit I will be analysing all the developments including; Physical, social, intellectual and emotional development, this is because I haven't seen Harris in a long time and therefore he must have developed in some areas. The activities I have planned are; * A jigsaw puzzle- will help me observe his intellectual development and see how well he can identify with different concepts. It will also allow me to see how well he uses his fine motor skills since he will pick up the jigsaw pieces with his fingers. * A ball game- will allow me to observe Harris's physical development and see how well he uses his motor skills (gross motor skills and fine motor skills). To see how well Harris uses his motor skills we will play a game of football and catch. Besides the fact that I will see how well Harris uses his motor skills I will be able to see how well he has developed his hand-eye coordination. * A food activity- will help me observe his social development. ...read more.

I did not force Harris to say anything because I realised he would feel scared and uncomfortable so I just sat down on the floor with him and watched him do the jigsaw. As I expected Harris completed the jigsaw in less than 5 minutes and enjoyed the activity very much. Harris played with the jigsaw for 15 minutes and got bored and went and played with his toys. I left Harris to play with his toys because if I asked him to play with the ball he may have felt pressurised to do so. After half an hour I started playing with the ball out of boredom and noticed Harris was quite intrigued in what I was doing. Harris came and stood near me and just watched I thought Ill pass him the ball and see if he copies me. I kicked the ball towards the wall and passed the ball to him, Harris copied me and kicked the ball towards the ball he had to kick the ball a few times before he actually kicked it to the wall because he kept missing his footing and didn't kick the ball. ...read more.

Conclusion

The fruits Harris liked were the bananas and apples he showed me this by smiling and asking for "more". My last milestone was "A child of 2 years will start to begin using telegraphic phrases" the only time Harris actually said anything was when he asked for more fruit. At the moment Harris feels shy and hesitant towards me, I think during my next few visits Harris will open up and talk to me more. Things Harris has developed on since my last visit I have noticed that Harris is very shy and doesn't like talking. For my aims I got some milestones from the child development second edition book. * "A child of 2 years enjoys toys that are put together and pulled apart". Harris used his fine manipulative skills to pick up the Lego pieces. * "A child of 2 years will start to begin using telegraphic phrases". Harris didn't really say much but did ask for "more" fruit. * "Begins to develop senses of touch, smell, taste, and hearing". Harris understands how to show that he likes/dislikes something. * "A child aged 2 can kick a large ball that is not moving". I didn't expect Harris to manage this. He did do the task but it did take him a few tries. ...read more.
