  • Explain, based on your observation and your desired future professional role, how you might support this child using developmentally appropriate practices.
    • What are some developmentally appropriate activities you can do with this child that will support at least two different developmental domains?

What are one or two considerations or suggestions that should be included into the classroom environment to support the needs of the child?
