Please do both fiscal summary and the development checklist
During this Module, you will perform a number of observations to create a Developmental Profile of a child. This is the eighth of these assignments.
Complete the age-appropriate checklist for the child using the Developmental Checklist Form. Be prepared to ask the parent or teacher for added information. This will involve setting up a time to meet with them about some items on the checklist.
Prepare to observe the child for at least 3 hours in order to complete the checklist.
Make a copy of the checklist to use while you are observing the child.
Review the Developmental Checklist Grading Rubric before beginning this assignment to make sure you have met all requirements.
Write the date observed on the blank line when you observe an item.
You may need to observe multiple times to get a full picture of the child, and you may want to ask their parent or teacher about unobserved items before marking it “No.” If you date an item based on a parent’s or teacher’s report, write the date and “P” for parent or “T” for teacher to show that it was not your personal observation.
Check the list provided for any noticeable red flags and ask a parent or teacher to look at the list of red flags to see if they have any concerns about any listed item.
Include information in the “Comments,” found at the end of the checklist to indicate any red flags that were noted and what resources you might supply for the parent to seek further assessment from early intervention services. You should also be able to relate the information you learned in the checklist observations about the developmental levels of the child and possible activities and supports you would suggest to scaffold the child’s learning and development. (When typed into the form, this should be a short paragraph of 3 to 6 sentences.)
When you have finished all interviews and observations, type the information into the form on your computer.
Check the Developmental Checklist Grading Rubric prior to submitting your work to make sure you have met all requirements.
Use a 12-point font. (If you used any other resources, you must add a reference section at the end of the form.)
Submit the completed Development Checklist typed to the M4 Assignment 8: Development Checklist assignment folder in a .docx, .rtf, or .pdf file by the due date.

During this Module, you will perform a number of observations to create a Developmental Profile of a child. In this final assignment, you will create a report that summarizes all the information you collected during the assignments.
In essay form, summarize what you learned about this child, comparing the child to the information from Modules 1-3 as well as researched information. Your essay should include:
An introduction paragraph (Be sure to include the child’s name and age)
Multiple supporting paragraphs
A concluding paragraph
In your paper, answer the following questions:
What do you know about the child’s strengths, interests, and areas for growth and development? (Give observed examples to support this information.)
How does this child compare to developmental norms? What resources and examples helped you decide this?
What do you know about the child’s language development?
Are there any developmental concerns? (Back up what you say with researched information.)
Based on your observations of the child, your own experiences, and researched ideas from the Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines, what specific activities and supports do you suggest for extending the child’s learning and development? (Include at least 6; one could be from the Support Planning Worksheet).
What are some ways the teacher could satisfy the parental expectations for the child’s education and classroom experiences?
What were the benefits of completing this case study to create a developmental profile for this child? (Include benefits for the child, the parent, and yourself.) Were there any deficits?
Cite at least 2 resources used to support your information in APA style inside the essay and in a reference section at the end of the essay. (The Colorado Early Learning and Development Guidelines, used in Modules 2 and 3, can be one of them.)
