Answer: Insert the Behavior and Identify the Domain2. Using the Behavior from the Child Observation Notes in the example below, the student will identify two domains for the same behavior. 2 pointsObservation Notes Behavior:“He then drew a circle on the center of the paper holding the black marker in a tripod position.  In the circle he drew two oval eye shapes and a smiling mouth shape.”Domains: biosocial (fine and gross motor skills, eye hand coordination, growth, brain development), cognitive, language, creative, social, emotional, or self-help as indicated on the developmental checklist) Answer: Identify the Two Domains for the Same Behavior#1:#2:3.

This format is an example of how you will be writing the Child Observation Report using the Behaviors from your Child Observation Notes and the Behavior Domain paragraphs. 2 points                             Behavior One and Two DomainsBehavior One is an example of both language and social development. “Billy walked by and asked him, “Would you like to play trucks with me?” David said, “No, I will play with you later.
