Introductory visit Joseph, known as Joey to his family and friends is a little boy who I intend on studying over a period of 6 months, to analysis his development mainly concentrating on his physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Joseph is two years and 1 month old; he was born on the 18th February 2000. Physical description Joey has dark brown hair and chocolate brown eyes, he has no freckles, he has sticky out ears and his complexion is quite fair. He has about sixteen teeth at the moment. Joey was born two months premature, so in his younger months he was a little below average in his height and weight, but fortunately Joey did not suffer with his health from being premature. According to Pamela Minnett, Joey is not below average in his height or weight anymore, he is just over average. Joey weighs 16kg and he is 93cm tall. Joey has almost a full set of teeth. Personality Joey is not a shy child but he seems it at first, this is because he acts like he is not interested in a new face until he feels comfortable around them. Once Joey gets to know you he is a very cheerful child. Joey has been brought up to be very well mannered and very pleasant, and many people comment on. ...read more.


Physical development Joey has been able to walk for over a year, so he walks with no problems, he can run and he can climb stairs, slowly. But when he goes down the stairs he uses two feet to a step routine, he is average because according to Pamela Minnet, 'The child can walk up and down stairs, two feet per stair, and can kick a ball without falling over'. Joseph can ride a bike with stabilizers; this is average for a child of Joseph's age, according to Mary D Sheridan. I have noticed Joey is starting to be able to screw and unscrew lids from jars; he is very impressed with turning things. He has also learnt to turn door handles, which is causing problems as he keeps trying to get out of rooms and hiding. When Joey eats his dinner he can use a knife and folk, he still makes a mess but he is gradually getting better each day. Joey gets very angry when someone tries to dress him, he likes to have a go him self, then he will ask for help if need. Joey can take his clothes off with no trouble. He can undo buttons but if they are small he needs help doing them up. Joey loves to draw, especially on walls he is slowly growing out of this but as a younger child he used too draw all over his house, this now only happens when he throws a tantrum, which isn't very often. ...read more.


I think Joey just likes to test the limits he can push his parents, this happens very irregularly. Joey likes to be independent. He gets frustrated very easily, but he is slowly growing out of this. Social development Joey sees him self as the centre of the universe, he likes attention and a lot of it! It is only harmless attention e.g. he will want to show you how he can run fast, but he needs to learn about everyone having turn to piece. When it comes to sharing toys, Joey is the complete opposite. He loves playing with other children's toys and he enjoys watching others play with his, but he repeats constantly "that mine". Others inspire Joey very quickly, he picks up on the slightest thing you do and tries to copy. Joey loves to play 'Mums and Dads', as he calls it, and he always insists on being the pet of the family. He runs around on his hands and knee shouting "WOOF WOOF". This is very funny to watch but when he gets over excited he starts banging in to things and causing chaos. Joey likes to walk around in his cr�che kissing all the boys and girls; some of the child like this but other run off crying, Joey cant understand why they do this. Joey often does what you tell him not to with, I think this is his way of showing his independents. Helen Cluskey 11 DX ...read more.
