Regarding his independent skills, he is able to go o he toilet by himself but needs help when buttoning his trousers back up. He responds well to praise and acknowledgement and is eager to please. He is confident when he is separated from his mother. He is a very friendly little boy who is able to adjust his behaviour for different people. He knows very little about doing right or wrong because he tends to always like getting his own way. He meets all of the criteria and is a very confident upfront and friendly child who shows good self-esteem. Evaluation of introductory visit The visit to my child I think went really well, I already had a very good relationship with the child already so it made the visit much more easier. In my visit i met all of my aims which was too find out all i can about my child and focusing on PIES, physical, intellectual, emotional and social development because he was co-operative which made it easier. I found it easy too ask questions because his mum and bothers where really helpful. If i did my visit again I would not really change everything because overall my visit was successful in the long run. ?? ?? ?? ?? ...read more.
