It will depend on the type of disability that the child has. They may have a hearing or seeing impairment or a physical or learning disability. Children or young people may be subjected to prejudice or discrimination which could lead to them being bullied or treated differently, this in turn could affect their learning skills, self confidence and development. In the past the medical model of disability meant that opportunities for learning and development where few and far between. Today there is a different approach to disabilities and most settings look at different ways in which they can help with learning and development and to give children as many opportunities as possible. 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

b. This item is important to me because I feel that children in this age and time are experiencing harmful condition that enable them to learn. I feel that we as teachers and family workers need to strive for our students to feel safe and secure in order for them to reach their full potential. As a family engagement specialist, it is my responsibility for my families and students to feel safe in my centers. My families need to be able to talk to me about any academic concern that they may have in regards to their child’s education in my centers. I feel all schools should have safety protocols so

In the nursery I am in there are SEN policies and procedures to be based on a range of legislations to help guide us to meet specific needs of the child. Legislation in the UK prohibits discrimination in education and supports inclusive education.

Norm-referenced tests are created by professionals, researched and published. They are used to compare a student with others that are similar to them. These comparable students are a norm reference group that is compose of those with similar culture, background, ethnicity, sex and other characteristics. Furthermore, students with disabilities should be included in this sample of student so that it will be a valid comparison for disabled students, too. Norm groups provide standard scores used to determine if a student is average, above average or below average, which allows for determining if a student is at the appropriate level, above or below it. Also, these tests must be shown to be valid or test the areas they are designed to measure.
My thoughts about Brenda Dyck article are of appreciation for all the wonderful suggestions she proposes to unfold children’s talents. I believe that with these two ways to evaluate, the Multiple Intelligence survey, and the Learning-Style Preference Questionnaire, children will build self-esteem and motivation to do better at school and in life. Students will understand that everyone is different and we all need to be more respectful and less judgmental of each other. More valuable as an evaluation is that teachers may capture a solution to a behavioral issue that will benefit the class atmosphere.
Despite being the most prevalent learning disability, occurring in 1 out of 5 people, dyslexia occurs on a spectrum. Not everyone is going to experience all the same symptoms.

Examples include Albert Einstein, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson, Steven Spielberg, and Keira Knightley.

Atypical development can impact a child’s communication development, physical development and their communication development. Sensory impairments and language disorders may lead to delayed cognitive development, anxiety and poor behaviour. A slower or faster rate of physical development may lead to social exclusion. Communication development can be affected by a sensory impairment, or speech and language. This may also lead to delayed cognitive development and anxiety. To ensure positive development interventions are important. Observations and judgements need to be made to highlight whether a child needs to be referred to a specialist. By having good support this means that a child will be more motivated and have a greater self-
