Observation is important to find out what the child is interested in and what motivates them to learn alongside their progress and how they behave in certain situations with others, and interacting with someone. Child development theories focus on explaining how children change, develop and grow through childhood. My observation of a child was done with a seven old boy by the name of Romeo. I first observed Romeo development such as physical growth, gross motor and fine motor skills. My observation was done at his house. He has black eyes and has fine, short brown hair. He is between 4 feet with 2 inches tall. When I visited him, He was sitting on the floor in his living room which is laying down with two couches and watching television.
The observation tool provided monitors and records a variety of developmental milestones. These observations are used later as a reference to better plan the curriculum for the class. Accurately collecting this information includes an honest, unbiased record of behaviors, regular updates, and a review by other staff members trained in the observation
It is important that when Observing and recording you of selecting the appropriate method to suit desired aim of the observation it. We do observations to help look at the different areas of development i.e. physical, intellectual, emotional, and social.
It is imperative that practitioners are able to observe and assess each child’s development in order to gain a full understanding of their development and how they can build upon this in order to cater to the needs of the child and allow them to fulfill their potential. This is highlighted by Wheeler (2009, p.63) in stating that ‘Observations are fed into family worker and team planning so that future activities can be based on an individual child’s interests and patterns of behavior and thereby enhance their learning’.
Observation is something that educators do carefully to gain information about young children. Documentation is the process of collecting evidence that serves as a record. When teachers observe the young children, it provides the information that the teachers need to build relationships with individual children and enable them to be successful learners. The best way the teachers should learn about children by carefully watching them, listening to them and studying their work. When the teachers are watching and listening to children helps us understand what they are feeling, learning and thinking. Observation is an excellent way to track children’s
It is important to observe the child carefully, closely and to listen to them in different situations to ensure that the teacher is clear about what their needs are, their strengths and difficulties. It is important to observe the
8. Practise! The best way to develop your skills at observing children’s development, learning and behaviour is to do observations on a regular basis.
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.
Observations are important tool to Social Work practise as it lets you identify any milestones that haven’t been achieved that the child at the specific age should be meeting. It also lets the observer know if the child is exceeding their milestones and is developing faster than their peers (Fawcett, 2009, pg. 3, 2nd Ed). It’s always essential to observe as a social worker as you do many assessments and observing helps you stand back and reflect on how far the child has come from the first observation you did and report on it. This could be to do progression with language development or fine motor skills. Fawcett (1996, pg.3) states that observing is important because it helps ‘notice what might otherwise be overlooked’.

Interviewees included Morah’s mother and father who were the main sources of information. The location that the observation(s) took place at was 7026 Bathurst Street, Zareinu Educational Centre of Metropolitan Toronto.
A new process for release medications was being discussed and was to “go live” shortly after the audit. The process was for prescriptions to be faxed to local pharmacies on discharge with the released inmate being able to pick them up from that local pharmacy.
To begin, Henry undoubtedly displays a certain level of self-efficacy. HE has always, “…believed that with enough hard work and intelligence, any problem can be solved”. This reflects Henry’s high degree of self-efficacy with the belief that he can overcome any obstacle if he tries hard enough. At his law firm, he was offered a partnership after five years due to his impressive work ethic, and his ability to, “…balance multiple cases and clients”. An effect of self-efficacy that Henry demonstrates is selection. Since he has a high sense of self-efficacy he chooses to take on more challenging tasks such as billing eighty hours per week, which he initially did to work towards his partnership. However, he demonstrates great effort and persistence
You mention how people tend to conform based on the actions of others and use the example of how people may conform to the actions of police officers since they are a group that is viewed as more powerful, compared to the general population. However, I can also think of a few examples where people may act out and defy the police, which may be in part caused by the power of observation, rather than the power of being accepted/avoiding punishment. According to the National Institute of Justice (NIJ), research consistently shows that minorities are more likely to view law enforcement as suspicious and distrusting compared to their white counterparts, which may be correlated with the high instances of minorities reporting that they feel the police
The observation made me reflect and discover the child’s interests, I could assess his developmental levels and I have observed what strategies were being used to attain their goals. After the observation I reflected upon it and realised that I have learned a lot about their personalities and skills that they need to practice.
