For this assignment, I interview a service provider for special education services. The service provider I interviewed, takes part in the educational team, and provide services. The service provider is developmental therapist. I was able to develop a better sense of the importance of inclusion. After interviewing the service provider, and learning her philosophy of inclusion I have was able to better understand the accommodations and modifications for special needs students.
For this assignment, I interviewed a parent of a child who does not have an IEP or receive special education services. Through this interview I was able to learn how parents of children with no special needs are aware of the inclusion classrooms.
An individual can always learn new aspects of life when they are observing an infant. This observation took place in the home of the participant. The participant is familiar with the house. During the observation the child played with her toys in the living room. The participant was a 12-month-old girl who is cared for by both her mother and father. Other participant included the child's mother and the child's aunt. The mother is a teacher, so during this observation and in the summer, they both stay at home. The participant is the only child in the household. After an afternoon nap and snack, the child sat in her mother's lap on the couch in the living room. While she was with her mother, she stayed close to her mother and made eye contact with everyone in the room. The child then got down and played with her toys in the floor of the living room. She began with the toy closest to her and began pushing the buttons while singing along with the different rhythms. The next toy she found was a child's magazine and she quickly flipped through the pages and found pictures of other infants similar to her. After a quick look around the room, she proceeded to crawl over to the nearest shelf in the living room. She began to pull her self up to a standing position and began pulling items off of the shelf and putting them on the floor. The mother quickly diverted her attention by
Jackson appeared withdrawn, and was somewhat embarrassed before stating that he did not do well in school. Jackson knows that he can perform better in school. When the other children began to tease Jackson, he was ready to fight some of them. This is typical behavior for Jackson, and is also a pattern of disorganized attachment. Children with a disorganized pattern in infancy tend to show disturbed patterns of relationships, subsequently, their relationships with peers can often be characterized by a “fight or flight” pattern of alternate aggression and withdrawal. Jackson’s coping skills when upset, threatened, or embarrassed is fight, unless the person is physically bigger than him. If this is the case, Jackson uses flight to cope, and seeks his grandmother for protection and comfort.
After observing a nine month old child for this Child Observation paper, the author of this paper has taken copious notes during the session. The purpose of this paper is recognizing the biological, cognitive and psychosocial development of the child. The author of this paper identified the background history of the child, the observation made and the development process of the child.
Going into our first observation I didn’t know what to expect because I had never been inside of an early childhood program other than for dropping off a younger sibling for no more than three minutes. Seeing what I saw that day was really eye opening for many reasons. One, I never really focused my attention to how much thought is actually put into the organization of the room. Also, the philosophy and standards surprised me because I also never knew that had so much to do with the whole place itself.
Per Reporter: Caitlin and the child lived with Lorraine for a while. Lorraine and Caitlin used to work together. While in the home with Lorraine, Caitlin was caught medicating the child with Benadryl or anything that cause drowsiness to make the child sleep at night. Caitlin would leave the child screaming at night. Caitlin screamed and cursed at the child due to her not wanting to deal with the her. Caitlin and the child moved in with Steven (Caitlin’s Ex) for a while. Steven stated that he was the primary caretaker for the child while at his home; Caitlin wouldn’t properly care for the child. Caitlin lost custody of her son (Caden) due to neglect as well. Caden is in the care of his father (Josh). On March 14, 2017, Caitlin left the child
I draw my attention into the children’s section as I walked into a department store. My first observation was that it was made easier for one to quickly differentiate between the boys and the girls section. I paid much attention to the boys section which was filled with tons of stuff which includes water, plastic, and rubber guns, industrial tools (hammer, screwdriver, and Plier), balls, and other types of technological tools. All the shelves that were in the children's department are set up with vivacious colors of toys. Children’s concentration was directed displays of toys within the store by the manufacturers, who is very sensitive in diverting the child’s mind through the assortments of toys. The children’s section was arranged in the sense that little babies will be
This study is intended to document my observation of a child between the ages of 2-5. The small child I observed is a 4 years old male. Family arrangements consist of the mother being the primary caregiver of her son. Since the child is not old enough to consent to my amateur study, I have received permission from the mother and father. The method used in this clinical report is a naturistic observation in which I went to the family’s household where I recorded his behavior for an hour.
I visited a Toys “R” Us and looked at the various toys arranged by gender. There was a clear delineation between aisles of toys geared towards males, and aisles of toys geared towards females. In addition, there were some areas of the store in which toys appeared more gender neutral.

The three parent child observations that have been documented will be analyzed using knowledge from class material and with peer-reviewed articles. Support will be given to show the connection between the articles, the class material, and to each observation. Each observation took place in a different location and each supporting article discusses how the actions of the parent and child relate to different aspects of a parent child relationship.
