3.1 Explain how to monitor children and young people’s development using different methods.

Focus Child One child is assessed for a specific time, events are recorded using pre set categories. 6. Time Sample This is the recording of information at regular intervals through a particular session. 7. Event Sample This describes specific types of behaviour or events over a period of time. 8.
