Virtual Child Essay

2152 words - 9 pages


At 19 months:

1. Describe and give examples of changes in your child's exploratory or problem solving behavior from 8 through 18 months and categorize them according to Piagetian and information processing theories. Note that 8 months is included, so you'll need to use the time-line to look back at 8 months for examples.

Psychosis is doing just great. He is learning new things every day and showing remarkable motor skills. Developmentally she appears to be progressing well with many of the skills important for his age. He organizes his toys by color or size, has a good memory for the location of previously hidden objects when playing ...view middle of the document...

Physically he is very active and energetic. His interactions are very cooperative and team oriented when playing with others, with only occasional fits, usually when overly tired or hungry. Emotionally we haven't seen any directional changes. He is still even tempered and friendly, with the changes we're seeing being mostly the development and growth of the personality she developed originally. With regard to his personality, we are trying to tailor our rearing techniques to match what we believe to be the best "goodness of fit" for him. For example, when he gets fussy or uncooperative we respond by giving him the option of two choices of how to act. He loves making decisions and seeking solutions, so this steers his in the direction we need him to go while providing his with an outlet for his emotions at the time.

3. Were you surprised by anything in the developmental assessment at 19 months? That is, does your perception of your child's physical, cognitive, language and social development differ from that of the developmental examiner? Give specific examples. If you were not surprised, write instead about some aspects of your child's development that need the most work.

Psychosis's developmental assessment was very impressive, but not surprising. He has always shown above average abilities for his block building and toy manipulation, as well as his motor skills. I was glad the counselor only had very normal sounding suggestions for his standoffishness around new people. I don't want to force any changes on him. I am deathly afraid of the ripple effect. We will take his advice and involve his with toddler playgroups to improve his experience with other children.

At 2 years:

1. Have there been any environmental events in your child's first 2 1/2 years that you think might have influenced his or her behavior? On what do you base your hypotheses?

Psychosis is very active, and, although he has advanced motor skills for a child his age. When this happens he is leery of repeating the same behavior (getting on the swings, his Big Wheel, etc.), but it doesn't seem to stop him from trying something different, even if the new activity has the same potential for accidents. I am anxious for him to increase his conceptual reasoning to the point where he can recognize an activity as risky due to past experience in other non-identical activities.

He is also having an easier time opening up with strangers and new situations or places. We have worked hard to ensure that his experiences in these environments have been positive and non-threatening, to reinforce his confidence.

2. How is your child progressing on typical toddler issues, such as learning household rules, learning to follow routines, listening to you, developing self-control and learning to get along with other children?

Psychosis has learned and follows his household rules quite well. He has his occasional bouts of rebellion,...
