Response to Sounds Checklist
The Making Sound Checklist and this checklist give hints as to what you should look for as your baby grow to see if it can listen. Just after the baby was born - a baby: Frightened by a sound as noisy as a slap of the hands or a thud. Blink or open your eye wide for such noises or stop vacuuming or start crying.
a baby: Begins to detect abrupt, long lasting noises such as the sound of a hoover and can turn towards the sound. Four moths - a baby: Smile or soothe the sound of the trusted sound, even if you can't see the narrator, and turn your eye or go to the sound.
Indicates agitation at noise (e.g.: vocals, steps, etc.). Seven month - a baby: Immediately turns to the trusted sound throughout the room or to very soft noise on each side (if not too busy with other things). Nine month baby: Hears closely every day noise and looks for very soft noise that is out of view.
Twelve month baby:
It'?s your toddler: Development-checklist: from 12 to 18 month
Keep in mind that all kids are individual and evolve at their own speed. The checklist should only be used to get a general idea of where your baby is or is going. When you have misgivings about your child's progress, you should seek advice from your doctor. It is also recommended that you speak to your doctor and immediately get in touch with him if your query is important or relates to an illness.
Temperament Tool for Toddlers (IT3)
IT3 was designed for the Center for Early Childhood Mental Health Consultation, an innovation and support project financed by the Office of Head Start. Intermediate Life Tool contains a brief on-line questionnaire that enables infant and toddler carers and guardians to identify and research their own personal characteristics and those of the infant for whom they are providing them.
IT3 produces results that help educators and educators understand how resemblances and disparities in fit between children and grown-ups can impact fit, and along with these results, IT3 produces easy best practices that grown-ups can use to promote each child's own individual fit.
