Extracts from this document...


Visit 2 Date: 15th April 2002 People present: Joey and me Aims and planning - I intend to take Joey out of his home environment, away from his parents to see how he will react with me on my own. Expectations I expect Joey to be able to play on certain apparatus with my help but I expect him to ask for help on apparatus like the swings and the roundabout. Joey will need supervision on all of the apparatus for safety reasons. Predictions I think Joey will be more attentive of his surroundings without his parents being there. I think Joey may ask for his parents at certain times while we are out. Observation of the visit I went the Joeys house to collect him, and he wasn't ready. He was in the middle of getting dressed when I arrived, he was putting on his t-shirt and jumper by himself, but he need help putting on his trouser because he kept putting both legs in the one trouser leg. Joey help me prepare him a packed lunch, he was very interested about what the food was and how I was making it. He helped me butter two pieces of bread and was egger to learn how to open and close his lunch box, as it was complicated. ...read more.


After the five minutes Joey came to me and said "sorry", I was very pleased that he done this because he showed that he had understood me. I praised him for doing this, he seemed happy then he asked me to help him get on the swing. As I was pushing Joey I gave him a 'duck under', this is were you push the swing high then run under it. He was laughing so much he had tears in his eyes, I felt relived that Joey was happy. After Joey had been playing on the park for about 45 minutes I asked him if he wanted his packed lunch, he replied "yes please". We went and sat on a near by bench and got the food out. Joey is a large eater, and he will keep on eating even if he is full until he is sick, so you have to give him certain amounts. I gave Joey a sandwich first and I noticed he was trying to put it all in his mouth at once, so I had to break it up because he didn't understand, or he didn't want to understand when I told him about eating bits at a time. ...read more.


Emotional - On this visit Joey showed me a lot of different emotions, he laughed, he cried, he smiled he done everything I expected. Joey showed fear when the dog ran towards him and according to the NNCC, "A child at the age of two should be able to express feeling of fear", this shows that he is average. Joey showed me that he can get very jealous, while we was in the park I was talking to a woman who was with her young son, and I held the baby. Joseph got very angry and started pulling me away from the woman, I knew he was jealous because all the attention weren't on him. As Joey is an only child he is used to being fussed about and getting all the attention. Joey can be extremely demanding and persistent at times. Social - Joey shown that he is a sociable child because he wanted to play with the other children in the park, and he wasn't shy to confront them. I found that his attention span isn't very long because he could only go on each the apparatus for no longer than five minutes without getting bored, but according to the NNCC this is average for Josephs age.
