Infant Observation
Name of Child - Cyan
Child’s Age - 10 Month

After observing a tenth month old child for this Child Observation paper, I had taken many notes during the observing. The Purpose of this paper is recognizing the Physical, Cognitive, Biological, Social and Emotional development of the child. The child chosen for this child observation paper is a tenth month old male Cyan, who appears to a healthy normal child. His mother is half Indian and father is Indian. Mother and father are happily married. He lives in the hcyane with grandmother, mother, father, aunt, uncle an older female cousin who is three. Cyan comes from a middle class background and has no siblings. The author of this paper observed him in the living room of his home. His mother kept all of his toys spread out on the floor in the middle of the room so that the author of this paper could observe him while he plays. Cyan had many toys such as blocks, plush toys, rings, keys, a stationary jumper and a toy that is designed to help the child learn to walk.
Erikson’s Psychosocial Stage : Cyan is in Trust VS Mistrust. Cyan is able to crawl across the room. He is able to stand and walk with the assistance of a piece of furniture. He is able to pull himself up from the sitting position holding on to the coffee table. Once he stands straight up he is able to walk around the table while holding on. He is able walk around the room if he is holding on to the toy that is designed to help an infant learn to walk. The child is able to wave good bye make face expressions, and able to say “dada”. He is able to understand the word no, but doesn’t always seem to obey it. When his name is called is responds to it. He will respond to nick names as well. He can drink from a bottle and a Sippy Cup independently. He plays patty cake, and gives kisses. At the end of the session the child was ready to…...

Observation

...Observation The student is considered a novice as an observer of children. The student observes children to gain practice and understanding in child development. Students have an obligation to protect children and respect school personnel. Observers are usually visitors in the classroom. The observer must keep in mind that they are a disruption to the regular processes in the classroom and they should respect the classroom teacher’s direction. The protection of the child’s rights in any type of child study is important. Regardless of the procedure used to collect information, the child’s protection is paramount. The child must not come to any harm (physical or mental) through participation in the observation process. Confidentiality must be utilized at all times. Talking about children and families with others outside of class or with the classroom teacher is prohibited. Please use fictitious names in written reports. Any concerns about a child’s safety should be addressed immediately with the classroom teacher or other responsible party. Observation tells us about children’s behavior – what they are doing. If we want to understand children’s development in school settings then we should observe them in those settings. Observation that takes place in a natural environment is referred to as naturalistic observation. Qualities of a Good Observer: · Recognize personal bias and preconceived assumptions about children. · Stay focus for a long......

...Infant Feeding in the Context of HIV FACILITATOR’S MANUAL TOSOUTH SOUTH THE SOUTH TO SOUTH PARTNERSHIP FOR COMPREHENSIVE FAMILY HIV CARE AND TREATMENT PROGRAM (S2S) South Africa has the largest HIV burden of any country in the world, with an estimated 5.7 million people living with the virus. Women and children remain at the centre of the pandemic in terms of transmission, vulnerability and potential for impact. To continue to build on the existing successes of South Africa’s antiretroviral (ARV) program, the capacity for HIV disease management must be enhanced. It is essential that HIV disease management transition from an individual case management to a family-centred and chronic-care approach targeting and prioritising pregnant women and children. Enrolling pregnant women and children into HIV care and treatment early and regularly can prevent new HIV infections and reduce morbidity and mortality, effectively sustaining the quality of life of mothers, their children, and their families. The scale up of effective prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) and paediatric ARV care and treatment programs are crucial in the fight against HIV but are challenged by many factors including perceived complexity of treating pregnant women and children, inadequate paediatric and PMTCT knowledge and clinical skills, lack of psychosocial and adherence support, delays in integrating PMTCT services with antenatal and child health management systems, and gaps in......

...FIELDNOTES: A GUIDE FOR RESEARCHERS Fieldnotes: "The observations written by a researcher at a research site, during an interview, and throughout the data collection process" (FW, 501). I. REQUIREMENTS Much of the hard work of ethnography happens in the observations and fieldnotes. At times, you’ll feel as though it’s tedious to take fieldnotes; however, taking detailed notes gives you a set of data from which to look for patterns and ideas. In order to complete your field notes successfully, you will need to: General Requirements Spend at least one hour a week observing your community; While you’re observing, write substantial (3+ pages of observation weekly) field notes. Take time after you’ve observed to write meaningful, thoughtful questions and reflections on the “analysis” side of your double-entry field notes (explained in “Strategies” below). Date each entry, and number each page (This is vital! If you fail to date and number each page of your fieldnotes, you will be lost when it comes time to write up your research and prepare your Research Portfolio for the Celebration of Student Writing) Write legibly enough that someone else could read them. Keep them organized (in your Research Portfolio, among your artifacts and other fieldwork) Taking good fieldnotes requires that to divide the process into two phases: (1) notes you take while you are in the field (Observational/Descriptive fieldnotes) and (2) notes you take after you......

...Infancy (0-2 years) I. Description of the Infant: I went into the daycare to observe a child . The child I chose to observe is named Jeremiah. Jeremiah is two years old. Jeremiah had light brown skin with short black hair. He also had big round dark eyes with long eyelashes. Jeremiah had little white teeth that showed when he smiled. He had a round face with plump cheeks. His ears were slightly big for his head, and it seemed that they slightly poked out. Jeremiah had long legs, short arms, and big hands with long fingers. Jeremiah wasn’t obese, he was actually quite slim, but he had a chubby little stomach. He looked like an active infant, and he also looked very healthy and strong. II. Physical/ Motor Development: 1. Describe the infant’s control of his/her trunk and upper body As I initially came into the daycare, I noticed Jeremiah sitting down on a chair eating lunch. As another child got closer to him, Jeremiah scooted himself and his chair over away from the other child. It seemed that he liked his space. After Jeremiah was done eating, he then went out side. He got up freely, pushed the door open just enough for him to squeeze out and continued walking out. This showed that he did have some slight upper body strength for his age. He is old enough now to have full control over his head and his neck, so for every movement he made, he had no problem moving around. 2. Describe the infant’s control of his/her arms, hands, and fingers Before Jeremiah was......

...Infant Care Mari Cooper PSY 104 Instructor: Nichole Bennett April 28, 2014 Children zero to two years old are in the age period of infancy; whereas children eleven to fourteen years old are in the age period of early adolescence. Children grow and develop in many different ways. The three major domains of development discussed in our text are physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development. Child development is a field of study devoted to understanding human constancy and change from conception through adolescence. Developmental theorists typically focus on the progression of children in three domains: physical, cognitive, and psychosocial development. Physical development is the changes in body size, proportions, appearance, brain development, motor capacities, and physical health. Cognitive development is the development of thought processes and intellectual ability; including attention, memory, problem solving, and creativity. Psychosocial development is the emotional communication, self-understanding, ability to manage feelings, personal skills, friendship, and behavior. All the senses develop in the womb, but touch seems to be the first and most mature and vision is the least sensory to develop. Although, an infant’s head becomes proportionately smaller as they grow in height and develop in their lower body parts. Physical and motor skills develop rapidly in infancy. Infant’s growth occurs from top down and from the center of the body outward, according to......

Infant and Toddler Observation

...Child Development June 16, 2014 Child Observation Narrative I observed my two children; infant and toddler at the same time. The infant was 16 months, and the toddler was three. In my notes, child #1 is the infant and child #2 is the toddler. Both children are males. The setting for this observation is a scheduled playdate by the children’s parents. Both children’s mother and father are present. Child one screamed “AAHHHRRRAAA” a lot and had a toy truck in front of him. Child didn’t immediately start to play with the truck; he slammed down on the toy with his hands open and pushed it around. Child one tried to get up and ramble without a definite purpose around the room which he had difficulty doing because his gross motor skills seem to not yet be fully developed. Child ones mother grabbed him and said to him “no baby I need to keep an eye on you’ and sat him back down where he began. The child began to scream inaudibly “AHH!” Child two came out of his room, not knowing that anyone was there and slowly came near or nearer to the small group in his house and immediately moved with haste to where the other child was. Child two said “Ty, play trucks with me! This is your truck. Okay? Now let’s race!” Child one continued to sit in front of the truck, non-responsive to child two. Instead of playing with child two, child one stared blankly into the next room, and had drool forming at his bottom lip. Child one placed both of his hands firmly on the ground beneath him and......

...Social Workers support service users from the range of the life span from infant to the elderly. In order to best support service users it is important to be aware of developmental stages and trends in order to fit care and support for the people we work with accurately. Erikson states that if a person does not transition from one developmental stage to another effectively this can cause problems in later stages and create a sense of fixation. Children develop in different stages and in different ways. A method that has been used to explore these developmental milestones is observation. Observations involve watching a child for sometime in order to understand how he or she perceives and interacts with the world. attributes physically, cognitively and socially of two children, one male and one female, ages five and ten, respectively. This writer will identify the socio-economic status (SEC), age, gender, ethnic background, and family demographics of each of these children. The two children this writer has chosen come from similar living situations (i.e. they both live with single mothers), but have vast differences in their physical, cognitive, and social development. This paper will examine Erik Erikson's Eight Psychosocial Stages as explained by Dacey, Fiore, Travers (2009) in an effort to explain the noticeable differences in the two children that this writer has chosen to observe. These two children were chosen because they are both being raised in a single parent......

Infant Mortality

...CARE AND HEALTH CARE ACCESS ON INFANT DEATH OUTCOMES IN FIVE PUBLIC HEALTH DISTRICTS WITH THE HIGHEST AND LOWEST RATES OF INFANT DEATHS IN GEORGIA INTRODUCTION Infant rate mortality in Georgia is extremely high and is an indicator of the overall poor status of health among women and children in this state. Between 1990 and 2000, it is reported that Georgia was among the states with the highest rate of infant deaths. In 1990 the infant morality rate in Georgia was at 12.4 deaths for each 1,000 live births and decreasing to 8.5 per 1,000 in 1998. The infant death rate among the white population is 6.1 per 1,000 while the African American population was stated at a much greater rate of 13.5 per 1,000, which is over twice as high as infant death rates among the white population in the state of Georgia. (Georgia Department of Human Resources: Infant Mortality Fact Sheet, 2000) PURPOSE OF STUDY The purpose of this study is to investigate Infant mortality in African American women in Georgia for the years 2000-2005 in five public health districts with the highest rates of infant mortality and five public health districts with the lowest infant mortality rates (so we are looking at 10 public health districts total that can be found on the OASIS website) in the state of Georgia). LITERATURE REVIEW It is stated by the Georgia Department of Human Resources in the work entitled: “Infant Mortality: Fact Sheet” that the primary cause of infant deaths in the state of......

Infant Observation

...enjoyed what seemed like a very funny conversation with the man at the table next to her. There was quite a bit of giggling and squealing during this time. Physically Bailey came across as an active baby. Her legs where constantly kicking and moving, and she was reaching and grasping for her toys and other items around her. Several times during my observation, mom had to readjust Bailey back to a secure sitting position due to her eager movements. While it seemed Bailey was more interested in human interaction, when she did focus on her toys there was quite the effort to assess them and then to get them into her mouth. She was quite happy to chew and drool on them while making verbal noises (they sounded somewhat like ‘ahh ahh ahh”). During my time spent observing Bailey, which went a little longer than the 20 minute mark, it appeared Bailey was expressing her normal behavior. Her mother, and the other woman at the table, where quite content with Bailey and her behavior. This signaled to me, the observer, that Bailey is on average a happy, active, and social baby. One of the other things I found most fascinating about my observation was that her mother came across as a happy and social person. She was also very calm (even when Bailey tried to grasp for things on the table) and easily balanced her social interaction with the other woman at the table with her interaction with Bailey. Bailey was clearly exhibiting many of the skills that our book discusses as part of......

...Britney TravisECE 125 Infant Observation Three month old babies are so very interesting. You may think that just because they're babies that they aren't aware of what's going on. Wrong! They are very aware of their surroundings. Plus, they're so darn cute. I observed a baby girl that was twelve and a half weeks old. She was very wide eyed and constantly looking around. When I first arrived, she immediately made eye contact with me and smiled. I was happy to see that. She was sitting in a vibrating chair and just cooing to herself. Her mom put the show 'Yo Gabba Gabba' on the television and the baby girl actually watched. When the strange creatures on the television would laugh, or sing, the baby girl's eyes got very wide.She would also kick over and over again in excitement. Finally, after about twenty minutes, she finally lost interest and started crying. As soon as she started crying, her mom immediately picked her up and began rocking her. The baby then grabbed a chunk of her mom's hair and pulled down. Her mom made this- ouch, that hurt-face and then set baby in her swing while she went to prepare her daughter's bottle. Baby then continued to cry and lick her lips, signaling for food. She also kept stretching her legs out and kicking over and over again and raising her head up as if she was looking for her mom. Her mom dropped something in the kitchen and baby girl's eyes got really wide and she jumped, therefore making her cry even harder. About 5 minutes......
