Basic profile of existing children I could study: - Sana 3 Years old Lives-Littleover Personality-Sociable, energetic Sarah 5 years old Lives-Mickleover Personality-Shy, clever Josh 4 years old Lives-Littleover Personality-Shy, quiet Zara Age 3 Lives-My house Personality-Placid, quiet Selected Child. I have chosen to study the development of Sana because she is: - * Easily accessible as she lives close by and making visits would be easy. * I don't see her often so noticing changes in her development would be easier than monitoring Josh or Zara who I see very often. * Sarah lives far away so making visits to see her will be very difficult. * I feel the age Sana is at will be an interesting age to observe. * To observe Josh and Sarah would be slightly difficult as they aren't very sociable and rather quiet. They don't mix very well with unfamiliar people and I feel this will make it harder for me to see their development clearly. I could study their social development but they don't live near any playgroups or children's social area so this would be difficult to study. * Sana is less shy around unfamiliar people so I think monitoring her development would be easier.

Speech-Speech is an important means of communication. Talking enables people to exchange information tell others about feelings and discuss problems. Age 3-A child's speech is usually easy to understand at this age by strangers however grammar is often incorrect and may have a lisp e.g.- Red is said "Wed" Sana is easily understood by strangers however hasn't quite grasped all rules of grammar. She refers to people by either he or she regardless of what they are e.g. she might use the word "he" regarding a girl. Sometimes she mispronounces words such as cardigan and says it as "Cardinan". She also has a lisp where she pronounces "th" as "f" in a lot of cases. Overall her speech is clear to family and unfamiliar people. She also uses thank you and please in the correct places. Sight-The ability to see clearly and distinguish different colours. Age 3-A child begins to show a sense of colour from the age of 2 and half years old.
