Appreciating Children's Development Using Parents' and Teachers' Observations.
This paper discusses the use of child development charts to assess the social, self-help, gross motor, fine motor, and language development of infants and young children. It examines the roles of teachers and parents in observing and assessing children's development and provides 2 checklists, one for infants from birth through 21 months (at 1-month intervals), and one for children from 6 months through age 5 (at 3- and 6-month intervals). The paper explains how teachers and parents can use these and other checklists and evaluations to map social, self-help (independence skills), gross motor, fine motor, and language development. Sample teacher and parent observation checklists are included. (MDM)
