There are many different principles and values that should be supported and understood by the setting when dealing with a child with such specific needs. When dealing with such a transition it is vital the setting co-inside with the main principles and values involving such things as that the practice is a child centred one and that the child’s wellbeing is always paramount. The setting must always support and uphold the rights of the child and as the child is disabled they must also ensure the Disability Discrimination Act is also followed within the setting with regards to the child who is wheelchair bound, the child will also have to be involved in the setting by their key worker and the other professionals present in order for the child to feel part of the class. They can achieve this by ensuring the child takes part in such sessions as physical education with their …show more content…
Multi-agency working is vital in such a transition as the staff in the school must work with other professionals such as the schools SENCO worker which is a Special Educational Needs Co-Ordinator. These SENCO workers can also be used to understand different strategies to be able to integrate children with special needs into the class and to be able to assist the other professionals to know how to include them in class activities such as playing with the Lego on a table rather than on the floor and allowing these specific children to create relationships with their peers as they are being included in activities alongside
1.1 Explain why working in partnership with others is important for children and young people - it important that you work alongside others when working with young people because it is good for them to see that people do work together and to see relationships because built as well as positive outcomes coming out from working in partnership with people. It is also good because it shows them general life skills of working with and alongside other to come up with a solution. 1.2 Identify who relevant partners would be in own work setting - relevant partners would include, parents or carers of the child so that the practitioner and parent can work together to figure out what is going to suit the child best, management to see what actions and targets could be put into place and how the setting can be developed to help the childs specific needs aswell as how it could help the setting as a whole.
The parents of children with disabilities are dealing with grief knowing that their hopes and dreams for their child have been changed. They also may feel depressed, angry, anxious, fearful, be in denial, and feel guilty. Some parents may even feel the emotion of joy. It increases their ability to love, strengths their family ties, gives them a greater sense of pride, and teaches them to enjoy the little things in life. As a teacher, I would be great with working with parents who are dealing with the mixed
Strategies In the past there have been arguments between agencies and professionals over funding and arguments over who does what, which obstructed closer professional working. A number of strategies have now been developed that focus on improving co-operation for the benefit of those using services. 1) Multi-agency working: The support planning process and single assessment process have inspired bigger inter-agency cooperation with the individuals needs being central to the process.
Practitioners can support children to prepare for school by working in partnership with parent/carers, the school they will be attending, any other outside agencies including social workers, speech and language therapists, physiotherapists and most importantly the child. Practitioners need to identify the needs for the individual and cater for their needs, this relates to the practitioners practice being high quality. They could identify and cater for the needs of the child to prepare for school by reading books, talking to them about school, providing materials that they would use in school. (B3) Throughout practice, transitional objects are used in order for children to transition from home to the setting.
Explain the relationship between disability and special educational needs. Explain the nature of the particular disabilities and/or special educational needs of children and young people with whom they work. Explain the special provision required by children and young people with whom they work. Explain the expected pattern of development for disabled children and young people and those with special educational needs with whom they work People often confuse Disability for Special Educational needs and the Special Educational needs for a Disability.
Special attention needs to be given to health and education to ensure the child is healthy in all aspects of their life and their education is paramount to ensuring confidence and growth so they can become healthy confident adults and can go out into the world armed with a good education. If not the child could become withdrawn, depressed, and have low self-esteem which can bring its own
We believe that every child is entitled to an education no matter what background they are from. We encourage our staff to listen to the suggestions and needs of our children and take all matters seriously, building an inclusive community on trust and self-worth. The Salamaca statement and framework for action on special needs education 1994 (UNESCO, 1994) also states ‘Each child’s learning needs are different’
It is important not to stereotype a child with a disability, as this can lead to low self-esteem, for example a child with specific learning needs might be expected to do poorly in all subjects at school not just the ones affected by the learning need and this is not always the case. Since I have worked in our setting I have been introduced to quite a few children which have different types of disabilities. We aim to make sure that each individual is treated the same and included in all activities by adapting the activity to the child's individual
Children go through many transitions, so it is important that the children’s key person is meeting their individual needs. They should always be positive and welcoming. When aiming to meet children’s individual needs, practitioners must regard every child as unique. Likewise, the practitioner must acknowledge that attachment is important for a child’s emotional well-being during transitions, therefore they must ensure that the child feels a sense of acceptance, love and respect. Similarly, if possible, a transition should be thoughtfully planned and organised so that the child will receive the appropriate amount of support and are able to do it at their own pace.
The transition from primary to post-primary education is one of the most drastic of those changes, and schools need to be equipped to accommodate that transition. For special educational needs, many steps need to be taken in order to familiarize both parties with the conditions they live with and how success can be met. In order for students to feel comfortable and make the transition as smooth as possible, there are many things that schools can do to ensure this success. In order for special education pupils to succeed, schools need to create inclusion in the classrooms and with peers, so that SEN pupils can interact with other students and experience real world classroom time. For students with disabilities, schools need to take some necessary steps in order for a beneficial transition to take place.
I spent my fifteen hours observing two special education classrooms at Sulphur Intermediate School. One focused on math and the other on reading, though many of the children I observed worked in both classrooms. The students were in the third, fourth, and fifth grades. Most of the students had mild to moderate disabilities and simply needed extra help in reading, math, or both subjects. They did not stay for the entire day, but rather came for certain periods.
ECE 280 Inclusion of Children with Special Needs Learning Module 2 Engage and Learn Requirements: 1. For this assignment you will interview someone who assesses the development of infants or toddlers ( birth through 3 years of age) This could be a pediatrician, an occupational therapist, a speech and language pathologists, an early interventionist ( someone who works for the Division of Developmental Disabilities or AzEIP), a social worker or family support specialist(someone who works for the Department of Economic Security(DES), Child Protective Services (CPS), etc) , a nurse or early childhood teacher. Ask them to respond to the following questions: • What is your role? Explain the work that you do.
Their roles is to plan, coordinate, schedule, and evaluate curriculum and instructional outcomes within a secure, positive, and enriched inclusive classroom environment. Their main responsibility is to provide instructional schedule and long range plan information. On the other hand, special education teachers have to design their lessons plans to fit each of the individual’s needs. Their main role is to provide instruction and support which facilitate the participation of students with disabilities in special education classrooms, but also in regular education classrooms. Their principal responsibility is to serve as case managers and be responsible for the development, implementation, and evaluation of their students.
Fostering a tolerant, inclusive and friendly environment for special needs children by creating activities which will bring them closer to the community they live in. The activities to which they will participate outside school such as visits at museums or other activities will make children visible in the community and contribute to a better understanding in society of disability and the role of community in integrating them in their daily life.
