[0003] In research of human motivation, W. Huitt wrote about Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs in Educational Psychology Interactive, Valdosta State University, and stated Maslow created a pyramid theory of the hierarchy of human needs. The pyramid was divided into two groups: deficiency needs and growth needs. Deficiency needs must be met at each at each basic level before moving up the hierarchy to the next level. The first four levels are (1) physiological: hunger, thirst, bodily comforts, (2) safety/security: out of danger; (3) belongingness and love: affiliate with others, be accepted; and (4) esteem: to achieve, be competent, gain approval and recognition. Maslow believed a person continues to grow if and only if deficiency needs are met. The step beyond meeting deficiency needs is self-actualization. To be a self-actualized person, human characteristics need to (1) be problem-focused; (2)incorporate an ongoing freshness of appreciation of life; (3) have concern about personal growth; and (4) be able to have peak experiences. Maslow later developed two upper growth needs before acquiring self- actualization. These growth needs are (5) cognitive: to know, to understand, and explore; and (6) aesthetic: symmetry, order, and beauty. Only then did he believe that (7) self-actualization, or to find self-fulfillment and realize one's potential, would occur. Maslow later added level (8) self-transcendence: to connect to something beyond the ego or help others find self-fulfillment and realize their potentials. At this level, the individual becomes wises (develops wisdom) and automatically knows what to do when experiencing life/living situations. Maslow' s Hierarchy of Needs has been one of the most popular and oft-cited theories of human motivation.

[0004] Maslow generally wrote about adult behavior. The development of basic beginnings of humans and children were not discussed by Maslow. [0005] Jean Piaget, another educator, wrote about human growth levels in " The Growth of Logical Thinking from Childhood to Adolescence," where he stated a theory for development stages that a child may go through to be a balanced child. There are four development states that are described in theory as:

[0006] Sensorimotor stage: from birth to age 2 years (children experience the world through movement and senses and learn object permanence). In this stage they learn to reverse their actions to basic activities.

[0007] Preoperational stage: from 2 to 7 (acquisition of motor skills). In this stage they have the ability to form and use symbols, such as words, gestures, signs, images, etc. Their earliest use of symbols is in pretending or miming.

[0008] Concrete operational stage: from ages 7 to 1 1 (children begin to think logically about concrete events). In this stage they learn to understand three basic aspects of reasoning: identity, compensation, and reversibility. Also, they master classification, such as grouping objects into categories.

[0009] Formal operational stage: after age 11 (development of abstract reasoning). In this stage they take mental tasks involving abstract thinking and coordination of a number of variables.

[0010] Dr. Piaget's development stages are a way of specifying where each child is in the development of one's intellectual abilities, but its Maslow's Pyramid that encompass their environment around them.

[0011] These stages are adapted and balanced to a child's needs that encompass their environment around them of emotional, physical, spiritual, and intellectual growth. Resent society has changed because of our technological era that our children are achieving more at an earlier age. So, by kindergarten, young children are reading. [0012] The above-cited educators believed that an individual needs to achieve each stage before moving to the next stage, but if a child has problems they could revert back to the beginning. Many parents of children in today's world have a lot of concerns with mental, emotional, physical, or spiritual well being that deal with events of transitions, identity or developmental challenges such as injury, abuse, illness, loss, death, bullying, family/social relationship change, friendship or family break-up, repartnered families, adoption, self esteem, culture, sexuality, emotions, behavior and communication. This is where the versatile finger puppets of the present invention are emphasized by utilizing play therapy for children in less fearing techniques as shown in the present invention. The children use versatile finger puppets techniques for reading by flipping the pages of a book and using any other add-on tools to imprint their reading abilities and can begin to resolve internal conflicts, if any.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

[0013] The invention comprises a method of diagnosing and applying treatment for emotional, physical, and cognitive development in a child by presenting graphic representations of emotions, physical, and cognitive illustrations so that the child may relate to them and express and achieve self-improvement. The method may be directed at children who are challenged in an effort to provide fulfillment and self-esteem or stability to their lives. Once emotional stability is established or self-esteem is present, one develops a healthy foundation for learning, increased cognitive abilities, and maturity. The Pyramid captures a child's surrounding within their environment in an intra- and interpersonal way from simplistic to complexity. The finger puppet is the tool to connect the above plus it is a page turner for continuous progress for a child to develop in a healthy balanced life by reading.

[0014] For children not emotionally challenged, the method of the present invention can also be utilized to stabilize their emotional, physical, and cognitive foundation. Indeed, the method can be applied on a periodic basis to monitor their foundation. This could lead to nurturing and bonding to caregivers or mentors and provide a normal progression to emotional, physical, and cognitive stability into maturity.

[0015] One aspect of the present invention is related to developing a child's physically, mentally, cognitively, and emotionally from birth on up using versatile finger puppets. There are levels that the child goes through in learning...from Geometric Shape, emotionally, pre-physical forms, to ethics and morality this is Basic Beginning Needs - (of)Fulfilling The Five Senses (Level One), to Complex Structures -Safety and Security In Structures (Level Two), to Movement Of Animals -Belongingness With Love Of Affection (Level Three), to Human Accomplishments, Building Self-Esteem and Gaining Approval Of Recognition in Human Abilities -Planting Seeds of Cognitive and Physical Abilities (Level Four), to shape-, emotional-, pre-physical-, structural-, animal-,and human-like or Making Themselves As A Look -a-Like -Building Cognitive Abilities - Sprouting of Cognitive and Physical Abilities (Level Five), to physical and physical-like which is Physical Development - Finding Order and Beauty Within and Around Abilities- Building of Physical Abilities (Level Six), then to all learning levels working together on a Higher Development - Actualization -Ability To Grow and Share (Level Seven). The horizontal growth effect is just like any living thing...it starts out small like in baby form and ends up as an adult. If it was a non-living form, such as shapes in the first level of the pyramid, they would start out small and size. This also is for structures, they would start out small and simple and grow in size to a complex structure. Also, all characteristics, such as facial features and limbs etc., may be applied to a non-living object. This pyramid designed to go from simple to complex geometric visual shapes is so an evaluator can determine exactly where a child's cognitive thoughts are at the moment. The child may one day pick a simple form and the next a more complex or vi- versa. What is important is what one (the child) picks on a consistence bases or most often. This is an intra- and inter-personal dynamics pyramid of our multicultural society.

[0016] One aspect of the present invention is a method designed to make things reduce fear in a child's development in a physical, mental, cognitive, and emotional way that is similar to the levels of Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs, but doesn't address beginnings for children. It's an entity moves in any direction, but always trying to achieve a level of normalcy. Color is another common aspect to be considered when children are concerned because once they're able to observe (i.e. thru the senses) and think they are able to emulate different things within their environment.

[0017] The "Senses" are important because they are how we experience life. Sight is primary... because part of evolutionary adaptation seen in primates is related to the ability of seeing greens and red of the U-V spectrum. Primates and birds of prey are the only ones that can see greens and reds of the U-V rays. The U-V rays are like the colors of the rainbow red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, and violet. These colors if light, are less feared then the dark. Hearing, touching, smelling, and taste are the secondary. These senses all work together to play a big role in the development of growth for a child. They can be a part of any level of the pyramid vertically or horizontality.

[0018] "Color Therapy" is another aspect of the present invention used to bring harmony to the full process of learning. Next to consider is types of materials.

[0019] "Material Therapy" is another aspect of the present invention for the finger puppet. Material therapy for children utilizes soft materials and then harder materials, some like plastics, as their age progresses, for tactile sensations.

[0020] Another aspect of the present invention emphasizes "Ethics and Morality," which are evoked in a sensory manner when children learn from human connection or communication.

[0021] Another aspect of the present invention relates to a method of diagnosing and treating the emotional, physical, and cognitive development of a child using a plurality of groups in indicia including at least two symbols, typically faces, animals, or humans that depict levels of need for a child. The child selects a finger puppet having a geographic design from any of the 7 levels of pyramid (vertically and development within each level) which attracts the attention of a child. The child then selects an illustration from a group of illustrations wherein the illustration has at least two symbols based above the initial emotional level of a child. One symbol is always a happy or joyful expression. The child then selects an illustration from the proceeding group and places that symbol on that finger puppet. The finger puppet is equipped with attaching means which may be hook and loop fasteners at any location on the finger puppet, whether it be a head, stomach, extremity, hand or foot, etc. The finger puppet is then manipulated by adding the remaining illustrated emotion to the finger puppet. This emotion is typically a representation of joy or happiness. The two emotional illustrations are then removed from the finger puppet. This step indicates emotional stability for the child. Further, a book or other reading material is of interest is then read to the child using the finger puppet which has an attachment on an extremity or other location of puppet that enables the child to turn pages. It is healthier for the child to use the finger puppet on an old book than to lick his finger and turn the page, because you don't know how many others have done the same to the page.

[0022] The finger puppets of the present invention may have multiple interchangeable body parts representing social attributes and facial parts representing emotional characteristics. On the bodies and the extremities of the puppets, means for attaching educational exercises are present. These attaching means may be hook and loop fasteners or other convenient means. The educational exercises may comprise of a series of cards, shapes, faces, objects, letters, consonants, vowels, words, phrases, numbers, arithmetic problems, etc. The education lesson is conducted with a mentor utilizing the finger puppet.

[0055] Abraham Maslow developed a human needs pyramid theory for adults generalizing it throughout all ages and FIG. 1 shows what it would be for a growing child's emotional, physical, and cognitive growth. The following is a description of the various levels of the pyramid as it relates to children.

[0056] The word "child" in the subject invention has a broad definition using the concept of cognitive ability. Thus, "child" is not based solely on age, but the cognitive effects listed in the 7-pyramid levels of Figure 1. For example an autistics teenager can have a number of these pyramid levels attributes. Also an old adult can have such pyramid distribution.

[0057] Pyramid does include a pyramidal schematic of the hierarchy of children's needs. The vertical and the development with in each level goes from simplistic to complexity according to size, color, shape, material, no sound, sound, regular clothing, inverted clothing, human, non-human, animal, non-animal, look a likes, to not look a-likes, to simplest form in style, to complexity in style (maybe bling-shinny stuff added), no electronics, to electronics, non-eatable, to eatable, no additions, to having additions, no add-ons, to add-ons, to inter-personal, intra-personal, etc... This Pyramid captures a child's surrounding within their environment then helps other growth to occur within... emotional (mental, spiritual, and cognitive growth); educational (intellectual growth); and physical (symmetry, balance, order and hygiene growth) into abilities. The Pocket Puppet Reading Pal™ Finger Puppet is the tool to connect all of the above subjects for continuous progress a child needs to develop in a healthy balanced life. This could be adapted for computer uses, like games and what not.

[0058] There is several ways that the finger puppet may have a connection to the paper. It could be a rubber patch, strips of rubber, a finger jell pad, rubber on the outside with a finger holder on the inside, rubber sections placed inside and out of area that touches the finger and the page, a temperature activation turning, sound activated, light activated, bubbled up rubber, a finger rubber that is sewn into the finger area, rubber on the outside with cushion on the inside to keep finger from sliding around, and rubber feet frozen to turn the pages. A way of building communication is books for the pyramid, emotional, physical, and educational going from simplistic to complex with different sizes, of colors(light color is less feared than a darker), shapes(small is less feared than large), and materials (soft is less feared than rough). So, CD — DVD's for physical activity plus process or methods on physical and educational books and possibly onto computer. [0059] This method was developed because there are so many trials and tabulation that a child may go through in their years. There needed to be a way for children to come through the difficulties and stay on track by listening to their inner voice. Life has many challenges and this is a way for a child to over come them with ease. [0060] Emotions + Puppet + Reading and Drawing We start out with the finger puppet because of size, its many designs, and both genders or any race can use it without repercussions or discrimination. The pyramid is used to give an individual a choice of the type of hand/finger puppet that would be best used for their playtime. Different styles of finger puppets are used to accommodate different ages, as well as, possible mentally challenged or handicaps within our multicultural society. It is this choice that builds their self esteem. So, their choice from the pyramid gives the parent, care giver, or professional instructor some idea of how they are feeling without drawing attention to it verbally. The pyramid goes from Level #1 being to simplest vertically to Level #7 being most complex. If they pick the simplest it means that they don't want to deal with anything to complicate. If their choice is complex (Level #7) then they are ready to tackle anything that comes their way. A discussion of their choice can be approached, so as to or only to solidify their decision. Once again, giving a child a place of no fear or lessen the fear helps them to heal faster from a disappointment that may have come about. This is the Kid Friendly Technique, which is, doing things to lessen fear in a child in order to let them heal within.

[0061] Also, it was important for the child to find comfort in talking to an adult, but in difficult times, talking to the puppet like (3rd person), makes them fill more at ease or lessens the fear. This not only brings out their inner voice, but it helps them to listen to their instincts. It's like having an imaginary friend at their finger tips. The hand/finger puppet also has some hook and loop material or some kind of connecting way to place emotional faces, objects, or accessories on it.

[0062] These emotional faces are not only a toy, but a tool to bring out once again the child's most inner thoughts. The child can choose from a page or book of faces provided to them. The emotional faces go from simplest starting at sub-subdue, then to subdue, on to normal, to exaggerated, to goofy, on to puzzled, and mapped etc.. There is a range so the instructor can determine how the child is feeling without verbally asking. A positive remark can be said, such as, "That's a good choice!" It might start a conversation. If they choose the simplest face then that means they are at their max in dealing with life and want to be withdrawn at this time till their inner self heals some. They may choose the subdue, as their choice. And if this so they are trying to come out of their sadness and feel like taking a chance.

[0063] If normal is chosen, then they are ok to tackle life itself. Now, if (delete-complex or-delete) exaggerated is chosen, then they are hiding anger or fear. Next, if goofy or wiggle or funny is chosen, they feel like being goofy or just want to have fun. A puzzled face is a face that is in pieces and physically takes one to put it together. If the child self selects the puzzled face, they might fell as if they are broken or feel the need to fix or put together their choice. Next could be a mapped face, that would have a home or a favorite object that could be symbolizing security on one place of the face, then a connecting/dash/dotted line (this line could be made of objects-human or non-human) to another section of the face that could have a happy place that was enjoyed by child. This happy place could be a favorite fishing hole, a vacation place, a park, or just a happy location, event, goal, to maybe something in the future that is desired. If they self select the mapped face, it would mean that the child would like to run away-if not physically then maybe mentally or may be looking for a happier place or time. [0064] A discussion of their choice can be approached, so as to or only to solidify their decision. Some of these faces can be 2-D or 3-D in form. Also, the emotional faces can be negative or positive. A negative face will be accompanying a small positive face in order to not let the child get stuck in negative feelings. The reason for choices on the faces is for the child to use their inner voice to pick what is most important to them. A special book of faces will be made of emotions going from simplistic to complex or goofy-funny on to puzzled, then on to mapped with shape, color, size, and material in mind just for this invention.

[0065] This invention takes it one step further and places rubber on finger puppet to let the child use it as a tool that flips the pages of a book while the parent or care giver is reading. This makes the child fell important that they had a part in the reading of the book. Also, reading is a very important thing in their lives and their interest in books would peek if they have a pal to read with. It also, helps them to stay on track with their life because its reading that can help a poor child become or have richness for knowledge.

Emotions + Puppet + Physical Activity + Reading and Drawing Physical activity is for being pro-active in a child's personal health, self esteem, coordination, and concentration with less fear.

[0066] In this section, the pyramid and emotions are used much in the same way as above, but with a few changes. The Kid Friendly technique going from simplistic to complexity in a pre-physical to physical way which would show a pro-active technique to bring about more self esteem. This technique also, brings about more blood flow for the inside muscles like organs, such as the heart and helps a child to concentrate. The child first picks the emotion on how hard they want to work out. Then they pick a puppet with special clothing or we would call inverted or upside down clothing. Generally on the pyramid would have regular clothing at any level, but for exercise the upside down clothing would be used. An example would be a hat, dress, socks, or vest, etc. an example of that has animals on top and when turned upside down has buildings. [0067] This clothing is special not only because of its unique in that it gets children to move in ways they may not think, but it is also special in that it has special connectors to hook onto a stretchy band, so the child can exercise with a friend. Example of this for an exercise would be a hat. On one side a hat of a puppet could have fish and if the child raises his has up to take off the hat it could have a frog jumping out at them from inside or have frogs printed in the inside of hat. By using this method it could get give a much greater understanding of a movement so it could be accomplished faster, such as, first raising their hands above their heads to learning how to do a summersault. [0068] There is a pre-physical way that is first and for most. It is an involuntary way that gets muscles to move without much thought. Examples of those are a baby first sitting up, sucking, rolling over, crawling, and on to walking. Just like the first involuntary emotions would be smile, crying, and contentment. Sound would be used to verbalize words. Involuntary touch is when a child grabs anything and everything would be placed in the mouth. At this point the child is unaware of what they are actually feeling. So the toys would all have to be of environmentally safe material. Then the child will cognitive learn to accomplish tasks physically.

[0069] So once the emotion is picked, then the puppet of special clothing, and stretchy band (this band can be from some thing that fits to belt to a form of jewelry — wrist band, necklace, ring, etc.) then next would be type of physical activity. These activities would be in CD or DVD form (something that would use the senses of hearing or visualizing) which would go from simplistic to complexity for the child to pick from just for this invention. Now, the parent or care provider may want to choose this one depending on the abilities of the child, some physical fitness work out exercises may have a make believe character costume just like a finger puppet to perform with child. The physical exercise chosen, the child may feel a need to change the exercise face to another. Discuss the choices that have been made by child, if they wish to talk. Then once the exercises are completed, and put away, the child may want to hang onto puppet and go back to reading a book or at this point, they may want to draw (drawing promotes creativity and the beginning of independence) and place it onto their chosen puppet. So, the physical activity portion of this patent is for personal health, self esteem, coordination, and concentration.

Emotions + Puppet + Educational Activity + Reading or Drawing [0070] Educational Activity is to promote balanced thought, understanding, comprehension, and the ability to learn to follow directions, in being proactive in promoting a child's life that goes from dependant to independent with less fear. [0071] In the beginning of learning the child is at the mercy of a parent or caregiver to read to them (emotion + puppet + reading). They first pick up sounds from the readings and then they learn to memorize. Once this is done, examples of their learning shapes, colors, alphabet, numbers, phonics, their name, small words, their address, syllables, small sentences, vowels, constants, opposites, longer sentences, maps, 2-D to 3-D puzzles, and into reading books on their own. This may not be exactly in the same order used for all but it gives us an idea of how the English language or different skills might be learned and there may be more of the learning activities. The list above can be a individual or multi-learning activities that go from simplest to complexed or small to large in size made just for this invention.

[0072] The following steps would be used for the Educational Activity which is similar to the Emotions + Puppet + Reading and Emotions + Puppet + Physical Activity + Reading or Drawing. So, first like others, the child would choose the emotions (symbols) from the page or book. Next, they would pick their puppet from the intra- or inter-personal pyramid to do their Educational Activity. The parent or caregiver would pick the learning activity (listed above) of what to start and the child can chose within the set. The learning activities would be pages within a book going from simplest to complexity in different sizes, materials, colors, and shapes just for this invention. Story books will be written in such manner, also. Next, the lesson would be done and completed. You would then put it away and sit down to read a book with their reading pal. They may also do drawings afterwards to place onto puppet. Once done, place everything back from where they got it because it will let them start out fresh next time. [0073] So, this is why the intra- and inter-personal pyramid is important for the method of the reading puppet when it goes from simplistic to complex not only horizontal but vertical. Included in this pro-active process is the emotions, physical, and educational ideas to be built in the simplistic to complex with goofy-funny added on for color, size, shape, and material. Also, would be the CD's and DVD's for the physical fitness of the project. Going from simplistic to complexity is the Kid Friendly Technique. [0074] In every physical, emotional, mental or spiritual act, the self of each specific person reproduces itself, maintaining a unique boundary with the surrounding world, and "evolves" in structural coupling with its environment according to Vladimir Dinitrov and Robert Ebsary from their article "Intrapersonal Autopoiesis."

This brings about intrapersonal and interpersonal dynamics of an organism. Intrapersonal dynamics refer to the changes that occur within a person, such as developing an identity, having a voice, and achieving success. Interpersonal dynamics refers to exchange between the living and non living, building mentorship, and collaboration, balancing life, and affirmative action according to Faculty for Undergraduate Neuroscience. It is this reason the pyramid was designed. [0075] The pyramid must also take into account our society which has developed into a multicultural world. Multiculturalism is the state of racial, cultural and ethic diversity within the demographics of specified place, usually at the scale of an organization such as a school, business, neighborhood, city or nation.

[0076] Level 1 -Geometric Shapes...Basic Beginning Needs...Fulfilling the Five Senses [0043] This is a step-by-step method of approaching a child's developing order. From the beginning of life we all use our senses to seek our food, shelter, and clothing. Those senses are smell, hearing, taste, touch, and sight. We start with our sight in the form of shapes (herein known as geometric shapes), because that is where most babies begin development.

[0077] When a baby is born, he begins to see things only as shapes. As a mother (primary caretaker) talks to a baby, she moves her head, eyes, and mouth. The infant begins to watch the movements of the parental face. The first colors they see are black and white; other colors come along a few months later. Babies innately learn their emotions from their needs. If they need a diaper changed, they cry. If they are hungry, they cry. If they feel pain, they cry. Babies quickly learn that they get the needs met from this action. They learn to laugh by watching their provider laugh. It's these basis stimuli that help to bring about an emotion and fine tune the senses. [0078] The basics are when a baby, indicated as he herein, learns about his physical self. We call it the prephysical level. He first has to focus on his mother's facial features that are moving. Then, he focuses on the mother's hands while she is caring for his needs. To follow through his development, he continues to grow physically. Everyone is so excited when a child learns how to roll over, sit, stand, or walk. In the beginning, the child has to observe it being done first, before he can do it. He continually watches things that move. While they are learning to sit, babies watch people walk. Crawling becomes their first type of mobility. Then, as they are crawling, they watch the feet of those around them. By watching the feet, they discover that they have feet. The next step is by trial and error. They begin to try to walk.

[0079]This level is built into basic geometric shapes because of basic senses. According to the Wikipedia there are 5 main senses... Smell; refers to the ability of humans and other animals to perceive odors... Seeing; visual perception is the ability information from a visible light reaching the eyes. The visual system of various physiological components collectively work towards organisms of a complex task of (re)constructing a three dimensional world from a two dimensional projection of the world known as visual perception...Hearing; is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations from the ear. The vibrations then travel to the brain... Touch; requires sensitivity to the movement of molecules in the world outside the organism. Its hearing and touching that are types of mechanosensation...Taste; refers to the ability to detect flavor onto the tong. There are four taste sensations sweet, salty, sour, and bitter. Then the Chinese added spicy. This level was designed because we all have a beginning with basic tools (some described with pyramid) to develop in the simplest form using our senses that get triggered by color and material then moves onto emotions, physical, and educational. [0080] The basic tools in the Geometric Form are at level #1. Each level is depending on or related to the previous one except for level one. In Level #1, emotions are drawn from simplistic to complex starting with sub-sub-due, sub-due, normal, exaggerated, fun or goofy, puzzled, and mapped. This theory is used one every level of the pyramid to help a child to choose with little fear. Take for instance a circle...this goes from the sub-subdue... shape of an small oval, to sub-due... shape of a larger oval,... to normal... shape of a circle,...to exaggerated... shape of a extra large circle,...to goofy...shape of wiggly circle,...to puzzled...a circle like object can be in puzzle pieces that can be fitted back together with connecting type material,...and lastly, to mapped circle like object...that has a starting point (example is a person's home) then foot prints (or other types of images) to a goal or fun vacation some place else.

[0081] This structure is used through every level of the pyramid and is called "Kid Friendly". Small in size to larger, onto goofy, puzzled, and mapped is so a child can choose the less fear. The smaller size makes it less fearing...large in size makes it be more real and the more real to life the more one can deal with real life situations in a balanced way. Just a shape is simple...add on limbs, hair, and facial features...etc. makes it more complex. Material when softer is less feared and rough is something that is more to fear. Color is a lighter color, like pastels, are less feared the more bold the more to fear. Also, brightness means happy or positive and darkness means negative. Also, 2-D is simple and 3-D is most likely complex. The pre-physical at this level is the color jazz shown in the drawings and can be used throughout any levels given in the geometric shape of the level. The horizontal growth effect is just like any living thing... it starts out small like in baby form and ends up as an adult. If it was a non-living form, such as shapes in the first level of the pyramid, they would start out small and size. This also is for structures, they would start out small and simple and grow in size to a complexed structure. Also, all characteristics, such as facial features and limbs etc., may be applied to a non-living object. This horizontal growth effect is followed or applied throughout each level of the pyramid.

[0082] Level 2-Complex Structures... Safety and Security in Structures The next need that is met is safety structure and security. If left to lie openly, a baby, indicated herein by he, feels unsecured. But wrapped tightly in a blanket, the baby feels warmth and security, similar to the mother's womb. By using his senses, a baby can intuitively feel any insecurity of the person holding him. This prephysical status of insecurity is dramatically evident by the startle reaction to loud sounds and unfamiliar movement. At this stage, he has not yet learned to fear. The safety structure is put in place by the adults with the use of blankets, towels after baths, cribs, walkers, playpens, car seats, highchairs, then moves onto larger noticeable, such as, car, planes, and houses, etc. for the child's protection. This becomes a normal safety and over a period of time, becomes a habit. The child still feels no fear. Often the child is confused because of non-normality. A child has no sense of danger until after pain has been inflicted by normal curiosity. A young child would use a blanket and play peek-a-boo to build security of separation from provider. Prephysical stages safety can represent oral sensation as everything goes in the mouth, like fingers, keys, money, and other items. This level was developed because it is fine tuning the sense of touch. [0083] Growth occurs more rapidly with touch and that brings about security. The more security a parent bring to a child, first by touching then by securing in a structural form the faster the learning process for the individual. If this level was chosen, one would acknowledge security was needed.

[0084] At this level it is much like level #1, but we are addressing security. You need to find peace within yourself before you can find peace or hope on the outside. So, security is important not to fear...by using a few lines of structure, the child would feel less fear... if a normal not to complicated structure, the child could find security... Normal structure is a house that is simple and just the right size for the family...exaggerated or more lines could mean more to fear... goofy structure lines means no straight lines, all wiggly-this could mean the child wants to be secure, but doesn't want so much structure...puzzle house means a child would like to have a home again and wants to feel secure again, so by putting the puzzle together they may feel secure again...mapped is a house that a child feels secure in, but now, they may work towards getting their own room-work towards a goal. The more secure a child feel the more growth the will acquire. In this stage pockets are essential, too. A sucker could be fit in the finger holding area in order to see ones ability for oral sensation.

[0085] A blanket could be placed in a pocket and pulled out for night time sleeping to show security with in their geometric shape at any level. This might then give the child a sense of their own security. Pockets may be utilized an educational level of any geometric shape. Another form of security would be attachment. This could mean that the finger puppet or geometric shape could be have a attachment capabilities to other devices. Also, this includes other geometric shapes connecting... Some could have a finger holder on each end of the puppet. This would be called the Flip-flops. These could be used just for one finger or possible two or more, as shown in drawings. [0086] Level 3 -Movement of Animals... Belongingness With Love of Affection Climbing the levels of the hierarchy, we come to belongingness and love needs. As an infant, the only needs are food and shelter. An infant can survive, but will not thrive. However, if affection and acceptance are included, the child will develop at a more rapid pace. The sound of mother's heartbeat and her scent are only detectable to the infant. This is the prephysical level. At the physical level, a child will begin to display separation anxiety from family when left in the care of a provider because the provider does not belong in the child's circle. A child will fee feel anger and betrayal from parents deserting them, which leads to insecurity.

[0087] A child associates with baby animals, because they are small like them so they belong. They watch how the adult animals care for their young and associate it with how their parents care for them. As an animal runs from a child for safety, out of curiosity, the child chases the animal and develops the ability to run. The child, indicated as he herein, is at the beginning of language development, which is discovered out of action and reaction. He is also beginning to develop a sense of independence with wanting to feed himself. He also tries to please the adult in return for praise, acceptance, and affection. That is why he desires to perform actions such as potty training. He will use the sense of touch, which is the most predominate source of feedback at this stage. Soothing, soft, quiet sounds fall into this category as well. The feeling of acceptance is felt by the child when being held and the feeling of rejection is felt when a child is isolated in time-out.

[0088] This level was designed to bring about love of affection and belongingness to the child which was started in the last two levels, but comes full circle, now. They are fine tuning their senses because they are secure and have love and belongingness. Their awareness for movement by using vision is keen and gets them to look beyond their box or secured area. Any movement, whether it be a living (mostly animals) or non-living object the child becomes curious and tries to use other senses to learn and expand their knowledge of the world around them. If this level was chosen it would show they are secure but have the need to feel love and belongingness.

[0089] At the level just described, we want to show movement. A child watches animals or living things (ie. trees, water) environmental (ie, weather) Sub-sub-due is an animal with connectors at the shoulders or hips or both,...sub-due is an animal with the head, shoulders, and hips with connectors,... normal is movement in all joints,... exaggerated is movements in all joints having body large in,... fun/goofy is movement done in an unusual way...example is like an arm where a leg would go and one eye instead of two ,... puzzled is movement of puzzle pieces that fit together,...mapped could be a goal on each limb and having foot prints or objects to the heart or possibly the top of the forehead. Since, this level is all about movement, one could utilize springs, coils, fan- folds, elastic gatherings, and swivels on any part of finger puppet. These movements can be implemented into any geometric shape. The horizontal affect is applied at this level, also. Some examples are a frog can go from a tad pole to a frog and a butterfly can go from a caterpillar to a butterfly, much like a human goes from a baby to and adult.. [0090] Level 4-Human Accomplishments ...Building Self-Esteem and Gaining Approval of Recognition In Human Abilities... Planting Seeds of Cognitive and Physical Abilities

[0091] Carried over from the last level comes the desire for esteem needs. At this level, the child seeks to achieve, to be competent, and gain approval or recognition from providers. In the prephysical state, the infant has no concept of this need. In the physical state, the child desires acceptance. Evidence of this is found with the desire to communication needs, i.e., I gotta go potty, I'm hungry, I want more, and the statement No! This stage also has the desire to communicate with drawing, sounds, touching, and writing. Children are aggressive to learn and develop the skills to express their needs. A child will feel sad from disapproval and will cry from unacceptance. A child will smile and laugh from achievement and recognition. A child recognizes acceptance and unacceptance, approval and disapproval, by the inflection in the parent's voice. A child, indicated as he herein, can feel the difference between, like a pat on the back, in contrast rejection of his behavior, like a time-out. He becomes aware of differences, like up/down, under/over, light/dark, heavy/light, old/new, and other opposites. He is becoming aware of body parts, feet, hands, belly button, nose, ears, eyes, and fingers/toes etc.

[0092] At this level, the child learns to build accomplishments by developing self-esteem and gain approval from others for their abilities. This is where if you don't succeed you try and try again in order to accomplish and fine tune human attributes to live within our society. If this level is chosen, the child wants to learn and grow cognitively. This level embraces human characteristic and small achievements for when a child begins and matures into adulthood. When trying to be familiar to what a child feels comfortable with, first maybe a stick person, blank head...body...limbs, and later different size of bodies. This could also go for a Facial Features that could be enhanced for bring attention to the feature. Another way to bring attention to a human legs, one could add in other animal legs and let the child pick the one that looks similar to theirs. [0093] Then an example to bring attention to a child's hand is to make a finger puppet page turner in the shape of a hand and between the fingers there could be a different type of dinosaur's tail or other types of animals or objects. For a pre-physical state a child could have a finger puppet in the shape of an infant that would be sitting up, rolling over, or crawling...next could be one walking, jumping, or dancing...and lastly, would be one that could run. Most like to run with their friends to the saying "One for the money, Two for the show, Three to get ready, and Four to go, go, go. At this level of human figures, like school kids that hold the seeds for the cognitive abilities beginnings such as alphabet, numbers, shapes, phonics etc.. Then, next, they would work with words and spelling, short sentences and pictures, and saying pictures/words this would be planting seeds for more complex abilities. Flip flop human figures could be used at this level also. An example, would the numbers 6 and 9. When Flip Flopped it is another number. An example of horizontal affect is as mentioned above where a baby can be the small in size and mature into an adult (larger size).

[0094] Level 5 -Making Themselves as a "Look-a-Like"...Building Cognitive Abilities... Sprouting of Cognitive and Physical Abilities

Expanding on the hierarchy of needs, we discover the desire to explore and understand the unknown. With the physical, children seek an answer to their curiosity by mimicking different animal actions, sounds, and facial expressions. This brings about their emotional awareness for equality. Their imagination draws them to desire acceptance in extended groups other than family, such as the neighborhood children and school mates. A child might pretend to be a Christmas tree to understand what it is like to be a triangle. In the same manner, a child would take a black marker and color his skin to try to understand what it is to live as a different color. A child might lick the hands of another acting like a puppy and decide not to become a puppy because it doesn't taste good. Children play dress-up and pretend to be people, like mom and dad, then on to other cultures, i.e., tea party, pop stars, superheroes. They are using their sense of sight in this action. The prephysical of this level would be the sense of smell and taste, like the stench of pigs, or the tart smell of lemons, or the sweet aroma of flowers. [0095] At this level, the child may be in a dreamy state by wanting to make themselves a "look-a-like." This would sprout their cognitive and physical abilities, which would lead them into creativity and wonderment. If this level was chosen, one would see the child's curiosity of the world around them that's within their grasps to build upon the future. This level is full of fun for a child. A hollow headed figure or object fits over top of the human or other figure and the rest of the body stuffed, then lays on the back of said figured. Some examples are the dino-, butter-, piggy-, horsy-back etc.. this list could go on for every some could have limbs and some may no, such as a snake. This is the level where a child builds more complexed cognitive abilities. The begin to combine words with action. A child may ask a question of why is this dog have four legs and I only have two? An example of the horizontal affect at this level would be a baby dino-back on child figure and a full grow dino-back on the adult figure. This could work well as the flip flop finger puppets, also.

[0096] Level 6-Physical Development...Finding Order and Beauty Within and Around Abilities... Building of Physical Abilities

By gaining knowledge through mimicking, a child steps up to the aesthetic needs with the learning of symmetry, balance, order, and hygiene. Children learn balance through dance. Through tumbling, they learn symmetry. Then they learn hygiene through imitation and repetition. A child learns order through dressing, i.e., socks first, shoes second. A child gains balance by mimicking dances with dolls. Symmetry is mirroring the left side of the body to the right side. Most children by this age have developed fears from trial and error. At this stage, they are aware of body development (their arms and legs are longer and their heads and waists are larger). They acknowledge they are growing and not staying the same as an infant. They also associate animals and insects in the same manner, like a caterpillar turns into a butterfly and a pollywog turns into a frog. [0097] They are becoming aware of their five senses. Their likes and dislikes to taste and smells, the differences between the touch sensation of smooth and rough, slimy (like a worm), and fluffy (like a caterpillar), and about light that is comfortable to eyes and the amount of sound to the ears. They are learning to compare and contrast. By comparing and contrast, they need to exert energy in order to have a physical balance. When this happens it helps the child's mental and emotional ability, along with their physical. At this level, the child sees himself/herself physical movements when using their muscles and tries to find order and beauty within and around those abilities. If this level is chosen, one could know that the child is discovering their physical abilities and possible the physical abilities of other living things. Pockets could be applied to puppets to hold show muscles within the living. Their clothing inverted so children can see the difference of right-side-up and up-side-down. By placing the elastic band on the limbs children can begin to understand right from left, up from down, turning, straight from diagonal , bending, jumping, top from bottom, and back from front, and touching. [0098] The process for doing fun exercises or a Wellness Program is flexibility, stretching, coordination and a systematic way to follow instructor with pocket puppet reading pals. Choose the exercise emotions (this is one large face and one small smiley face) then the pocket puppet reading pal, apply the exercise emotions to the puppet, choose exercise, perform the exercise, once the exercise is done, but the tape away, along with the exercise emotions and choose a reading book, and use the pocket puppet reading pal to flip the pages your reading. Instructor may give advise of the simple exercises in DVD form or CD form first then perform more complex ones as their progress improves. This advice would be called he horizontal affect.

[0099] Level 7-Higher Development...Actualization...Abilities To Grow and Share It is at this level that a child, indicated as he herein, realizes that he is a whole person with feelings, emotions, needs, and desires. And he is at the beginning level to fulfill these needs on his own. Through past training, experimentation, and learning, he has achieved this level. He begins to desire self-achievement and acceptance separate from the family unit and begins to explore different areas to fulfill his needs and wants. This is the beginning when he realizes consequences and responsibility for his choices in life. His emotions now correspond with his physical reactions appropriately. If this level is chosen, the child is at a higher development. He begins actualization for himself and others through empathy and morality to grow and share his world around him with skills learned from other levels. This level is the highest and most complex because one has combinations to choose from all levels and wants to share what was chosen. This level is a combination of all the levels. This is a higher development because of the complexity needed to think through and re-enact or be in creative talk about dual emotions. Flip flops could be used at this level also. They help a child's mind flow or concentrate. [0100] These finger puppets are to be employed as a part of cognitive therapy representing a field of educational and medical therapy intended for the improvement of the mind response of the directed person. In the educational field, this is applied to children whose cognitive ability is apparently age neurodevelopmentally challenged, particularly with respect to social and emotional aspects. In the general medical situation, this applies to all ages of persons whose mind is culturally neurodevelopmentally challenged for some reason. One example of this is the puzzle emotional face, when given to construct, can ingratiate the sub-conscious mind into the conscious mind to mend to a healthy child. Another example of the mending is having broken bones, sore muscles, or a deficient organ and applying a smiley face to the hurt on the finger puppet.

[0101] A typical example for a versatile finger puppet is an oval shape colorful character that has a rubber material placed upon the belly and a holder given in different styles inside for placement of a finger into the puppet to help turn pages of a book. This character may or may not have extremities. A cognitive therapy patient that grabs the oval character and drags it across an open book results in turning the page. [0102] In operation, the method comprises diagnosing and applying treatment for the emotional, physical and cognitive development of a child using a plurality of groups of indicia, including at least two symbols, or faces, all the symbols or faces of each group illustrate levels of need or emotions for a child by performing a number of steps. The main objective for this is to excite and motivate children about reading, but the second objective this a tool to diagnose abuse and other trauma or emotional issues. To diagnose, if a child's choices always are sub-sub due and sub-due are with emotion and geometric shape then they hold much fear. Build trust by communication and try to find the source of the fear. Keep things in the simple form. Treatment would be building trust, lessen the fear, know where they are at by what their choosing. Parent, guardian, educator, or psychologist knows that if the child feels it, then they will heal it. So, treatment will be left to their guidance with the use of the tools mentioned in this patent. [0103]To diagnose a child, one must recognize a condition of outward signs. This could be a culture, social, context, temperament and the personality cognition, development, health, and biology according to the Cognitive Behavioral Play Therapy (CBPT) for the domains of an emotion. The recent development of CBPT reveals that cognitive strategies can be used effectively with young children if treatments are adapted in order to be developmentally sensitive and attuned to the child needs. So the treatment is in the form of the pyramid full of geometric shapes going from simplistic to complexity starting at the bottom and going up vertically. Next are those geometric shapes within each level of said pyramid developed from simplistic to complexity (example of is a small triangle growing in full grown or a tad poll growing to an adult frog or a human baby growing to adulthood). The book of emotions also goes from simplistic to complexity for each emotion. This addresses fear emotional, physical and intellectually. [0104] These ways are a Kid Friendly Technique to bring about the balance in a child's choices by maneuvering objects in front of them in order to come up with good cognitive strategies. Piaget's theory explains why he maneuvers objects in front of the child. The practitioner who uses animal puppets with a child in an investigation of abuse does so partly at least because it will be less intimidating for a child to "talk" through animals- that is, the constraints involved in a direct verbal exchange are lifted, and the child can displace feelings and actions on to the puppet. Play is also a means of addressing the limitations imposed by the younger child's limited verbal capacity and cognitive awareness. Thus before a child has reached the stage of what Piaget describes as "formal operations" (ages 11 and up) and becomes capable of abstract thought, it may be easier to use physical representations of things which are familiar (a tree to represent the past history of a family, for example) than words. Thus the use of play is based on an understanding of it as an area free from constraints, and also on an assessment of the child's intellectual, emotional, and cognitive development. (Play Therapy A Non- directive Approach for Children and Adolescents, by: Kate Wilson, Paula Kendrick, Virginia Ryan 1992)

[0105] For this reason place the tools before the child to get them started. This includes the pyramid full of puppets (hand or finger), emotional book, regular book, specialty book, educational themes (tools), physical themes and music in some form. The child selects a hand/finger puppet or ball puppet of original design from the pyramid that interests the child. This could be of anything from 2-D to 3-D in design. Also, for gripping, the ball figured with large feet (for example, see drawings of duck) is used for the very young and he concept of the hand/finger puppets used as fingers are acknowledged If they pick the 2-D it means that they hold some fear, which is the opposite of the 3-D designs. Also, what is important is to what degree that the child chooses as far as the sub-sub due, sub-due, normal, exaggerated, goofy, puzzled and mapped. The pyramid goes from Level #1 being to simplest vertically to Level #7 being most complex. If they pick the simplest it means that they don't want to deal with anything to complicate. If their choice is complex (Level #7) then they are ready to tackle anything that comes their way. There needs to be a look at it development within each level also, because it also goes from simplistic to complexity. If they choose a sub- sub due looking geo-metric shape, they really don't want choose anything because they fear everything. This could be in simplest form and body would be in a weakest state, example would be stick form and markings on face, like dots for eyes and a line in the shape of a smile. If sub-due geo-metric shape is choose, the child's world is beginning to open up. Their life wants to be normal but a medium amount of fear stands in the way. [0106] They watch the actions of others and say very little. As time goes on the normal geo-metric shape is yearned for. The fear has subsided. This normal is freedom. Freedom to feel emotionally free, freedom to act physically free and the freedom to be all that one can achieve is what feeling normal. Next, if the exaggerated geo-metric shape is choose, the child feels left out much of the time and wants to be noticed. Feels as though they need to be noticed and by doing this they act out more. Much sadness is felt on this exaggerated shape. If goofy looking geo-metric shape is choose, the child wants to feel happy, but really isn't. This feeling is a form of acting up in order to fit in with ones peers and sometimes choosing it to be different. They long for normalcy but know if they were normal they might loose the friends they have acquired by being goofy. A discussion of their choice can be approached, so as to or only to solidify their decision. [0107] The child then selects an illustration from a first group, typically comprising faces having at least two symbols. The selection is based on the emotional level of the child and placed on the finger puppet. If they choose the simplest face then that means they are at their max in dealing with life and want to be withdrawn at this time till their inner self heals some. They may choose the sub-due, as their choice. And if this so they are trying to come out of their sadness and feel like taking a chance. If normal is chosen, then they are ok to tackle life itself. Now, if (delete-complex or-delete) exaggerated is chosen, then they are hiding anger or fear. Next, if goofy or wiggle or funny is chosen, they feel like being goofy or just want to have fun. A puzzled face is a face that is in pieces and physically takes one to put it together. This is intellectual Next could be a mapped face, that would have a home or a favorite object that could be symbolizing security on one place of the face, then a connecting/dash/dotted line (this line could be made of objects-human or non-human) to another section of the face that could have a happy place that was enjoyed by child. This happy place could be a favorite fishing hole, a vacation place, a park, or just a happy location, event, and goal, to maybe something in the future that is desired. If they self select the mapped face, it would mean that the child would like to run away-if not physically then maybe mentally or may be looking for a happier place or time. A discussion of their choice can be approached, so as to or only to solidify their decision.

[0108] An illustration from a second group is selected and placed over the first illustration semi-covering the emotion described in the illustration. An example of this is a smile face added to the present emotion. The reason for this is to have a child walk away with a happy or positive feeling from first illustration. We want to continue to expanded the child's mind so more first illustrations (faces) maybe added with hook and loop or attachable system for storytelling ending up with the semi-covering positive illustration. For guidance, this step also could indicate the child has changed his original emotional status and maybe the result of a third party mentor talking to the child or performing an exercise to change the emotional status of the child. [0109]Either illustrations or faces are removed from the finger puppet indicating the child has attained emotional stability. A way to make it more self gratifying is to have the child put away the illustrations on their own and praise them for achieving the completion. Above is focusing on the emotional activity and the physical activity and educationally activity are placed here before the reading. Physical activity is for being pro-active in a child's personal health, self esteem, coordination, and concentration with less fear.

[0110] The drawings are designed for the purpose of illustration only and not as a definition of the limits of the invention. FIG. 1 (A) is the front view of a pyramidal schematic of the hierarchy of children's needs.
