Hi, I am a student nurse ( i am sure u could tell that by my user name) and we have to do the Denver II test on an infant, toddler, pre-schooler, school age and adolescent. does anyone know of a site i can go to for help on teaching the pt/parent about 1)nutrition for each age, and 2)safety, and 3)play activities?? for the older two age groups, we have to complete a developmental assessment c examples of behaviors observed and a brief analysis as compared to expected norms,and teaching lists as listed above.
we also have to have a list of activities to promote accomplishment of Erickson's developmental task. any and all help would be greatly appreciated, whether it be personal comments, websites, whatever.. thank you so much....
