It is important that people have a positive attitude when providing the correct care for children and young people who have disabilities in order to meet their specific needs and to make sure they are able to have the opportunity to learn new skills, for example this can be by learning how to do sign language if they have or know people who may have a hearing impairment. It is important that we treat people who have disabilities as we would any other person we come in contact with so that they are treated equally and fairly. It will also teach the
Sometimes it isn’t recognized for several years, it can go as far adulthood until a health defect can be noticed. 2. Premature births can alter with the baby’s intellectual and developmental progression causing problem with the functioning of the baby’s brain. i. This can delay the baby’s physical and learning development, its ability to communicate with others, and with the ability to care for itself.
This also focuses attention on the important role of the key person/ key worker in a safeguarding high-quality care and learning experiences for young children. Practitioners have established that the mandatory welfare necessities are important for the early year’s basic safety, security and health. These also require to reassure parents and carers that their children will experience a good level of care in all settings. Each principle of the EYFS has four obligations which show practitioners which are putting the principle into practice, therefore supporting children in meeting the outcomes set out in the government’s programme for children, Every Child Matters which also supports the holistic development (Hughes and Doherty, 2009). However, some parts of the sector must have found it hard to provide the learning and development needs of the EYFS.
Child Well-being When talking about child well-being it is important that we take the child as a whole into consideration. Children and young people should be healthy, respected, active, nurtured, given responsibilities, be included, be listened to and be safe from harm and be supported in achieving their maximum potential Moore, K.A., (1997). Psychological well-being and physical well-being are the two main elements of child well-being. We examine many aspects of the child’s life such as social developments and behaviour, psychological and developmental health, cognitive development and educational achievement etc Moore, K.A., (1997). Aistear created The Early Childhood Curriculum framework which focused on Child well-being.
By helping children gain the ability to use language they can help children gain confidence and self-esteem I have seen this in my setting with children who have had communication and language needs. These children have gained confidence and their language is now at a level that they can interact with other children and not show frustration. This is because they can now express themselves. The Senco in an educational setting give support to children and families with special needs this person/s is also responsible for identification of special
The second Code of Ethics is Relationship with Children and Youth. Professionals will treat children with respect, and be sensitive to the needs and rights of children. Professionals will gain a better understanding of children in relationship to their children. The third Code of Ethics is Relationship with Colleagues and the Profession. Professionals will embrace the diversity of staff, and provide staff with support and policies to address different situations.
The current framework is the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) which states that working with parents and other professional is essential and has an impact on a practitioners practice. The parents know their child the best therefore it is important to communicate with them in order to find out the child’s interest and dislikes. As he EYFS states in the article 3.68, “Providers must maintain records and obtain and share information to ensure the safe and efficient management of the setting, and to help ensure the needs of all children are met.”- EYFS 2014 https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/335504/EYFS_framework_from_1_September_2014__with_clarification_note.pdf This part of the EYFS means that failing to communicate and sharing information means that the child’s needs will not be met. The EYFS was updated to add more attention on working with parents and other professionals in order to meet every child’s needs. It is important to share the ongoing observations made by the key person of the child and tracking so the
It is not until we temporarily lose one of our senses, perhaps our noses are bunged up or our ears fell deaf because a of heavy cold, that we start to feel on how we rely on them and how much we suffer when one or more of the senses are not working properly. Sometimes babies are born with sensory impairments and it may take some months before the defect is picked up on. Behaviour Behaviour can have a major impact on child’s development. Children who are un-cooperative, finding it difficult to concentrate, throw regular tantrums, refuse to share or take turns and generally have problems socialising will suffer in terms of development if they are not offered the support they need. Some children are naturally loud and boisterous and find it difficult to slow down and take a rest.
Sometimes oxygen deprivation or other injuries occur during the birthing process and subsequently causes intellectual disabilities. • Problems after birth – sometimes childhood diseases can damage the brain causing characteristics of intellectual disabilities. Further, injuries like a head injury or near drowning can cause a child to develop intellectual disability symptoms. What Are the Causes of Intellectual Disability? Intellectual disability can be caused by any condition that impairs development of the brain before birth, during birth or in the childhood years.
All effective practitioners reflect to ensure that they are providing a high standard practice to ensure that children are provided with the chance/opportunity to strive for the best education (achieve their best). Reflecting on your own practice could be beneficial to a practitioner within the setting as they would be developing a clearer vision in thinking creatively as a skill and also the practitioner would be able to get a better understanding of others in the setting. By having a more clear understanding on the children you are working with in the setting would also enable practitioners to meet the individual needs of the children and make adjustments to activities if needed or provide the children with an individual educational plan
These include for example: children should be healthy, be safe in their environments, to make positive contribution to the society or be supported to enjoy life. Childrenâ€TMs Act 2006- this legislation replaced Childrenâ€TMs Act 1989. It reinforce the strategy role of local authorities to outline the duties related to child care which include working with NHS and Job centres; secure childcare for working parents, provide information services to parents and provide information and training for childcare providers.
Each service or program from the organization contributes in the well-ness and improvement of children with special needs in different aspects of their lives. For instance, the purpose of The Community Resource Center is to provide family support and promote the inclusion of children with special needs
Knowing when to test a person for FXS and what a test does is crucial. If a child shows developmental delays, family members show developmental delays or autistic features, female relatives have a history of ovarian insufficiency or premature menopause, it is a possibility that that person has FXS and should be tested (Carvajal & Aldridge 57). Symptoms of slow development in toddlers and infants are often observed before anything else. Delays in speech, emotional difficulties and being sensitive to certain sensations are some of the symptoms to look for (Cleveland Clinic). There are several tests that determines if a person has FXS or not.
Child safety is the primary goal of out-of-home-care; however, maltreatment investigations are still reported in those institutions. One in four foster children report physical or psychological abuse by a foster parent every year. Children with disabilities or a past of abuse are at higher risk for maltreatment in their out-of-home-care (Font, 2015). The young child is at the greatest risk for disturbances in the developing brain if their environment lacks stimulating activities that are needed for physical, emotional, and behavioral growth.
