Child development vist 3

Extracts from this document...


Date: November 25th Time: 6:45-7.30 pm Age: 4 years 2 months Place: Jack's house People present: Jack and I Aims and planning: For this visit I plan to visit Jack during his bedtime to study his bedtime routine. I thought this would be a good visit to do as it involves physical, intellectual, social and emotional development and these should be easy to observe throughout this visit. First I will make sure this visit is convenient with Jack's mum and find a suitable day. I will go around Jack's house 15 minutes before his bedtime routine starts so I can speak to him about his day and again get him comfortable with being with me (as visits are only every month Jack may be a bit shy as first). Firstly I will ask Jack to say goodnight to his Mum and Dad, we will then walk up the stairs and at this time I will be observing the way he does it. At the top of the stairs I will ask Jack's Mum to put a line of any sort across the landing to see can follow this line. I will then go in Jack's room with him and ask him to put his pyjamas on. ...read more.


Observations: I organized with Jack's Mum for the visit to be on a Thursday, and the time I said she agreed with. I arrived at Jack's house at quarter to seven in the evening and he knew what was going to happen, as his Mum must of told him. This was fine though as she said he was fine with it. Physical Development Jack run up the stairs as I expected and run past the straight line that had been put down at the top of the stairs. I asked him to come back I told him what to do. He walked along the line and run straight to his bedroom where I asked him to change into his pyjamas ready for bed. At first he started playing with a bucket of toys but when I asked him again a bit more firmly he did it straight away. He took his clothes off but then couldn't get one of his socks off and he asked me to help. He then had trouble doing one of his buttons up as I watched him but he didn't ask me to help he carried on concentrating. Intellectual Development Jack chose what book he wanted and it was a 'Thomas the Tank Engine' one. ...read more.


One thing I did observe in this visit though was Jack getting frustrated when he couldn't do up one of his buttons on his pajama top this is the 'norm' for his age 'getting dressed alone but needing help with things such as buttons and laces.' This is because many children at Jack's age are learning new things and some find things easier when they learn themselves. Social Development Jack always enjoys being with me and this visit was no change. He was very talkative as always and I think he is always going to be like this towards adults. He has a lot of adult members in the family and this might be why. The 'norms in this evaluation correspond to the 'norms' stated in 'Child Development' byt 'Brennand, Fairclough, Hall, Nicholson and Rees'. Conclusion: Jack is always an active child so I would like to make my next visit, again, very physical. In this visit he was above and at the 'norm' in everything except intellectual development. He didn't recognize any words in the book. I do not know why this is because he has many books read to him and attends nursery 3 days a week and does a lot of reading there. To have another look at books and words with Jack I will include them in my next visit. ...read more.
