As a teaching assistant you can give children and young people the tools to building relationships by modelling appropriate behaviour. To encourage trust and understanding, it is necessary to ensure that children understand instructions. Whether for an activity or a fire drill, any miscommunication of instructions can lead to misunderstanding and feelings of unease. When giving instructions it is important to make them simple and concise so that children can remember them. It is really useful to ask concept checking questions after giving instructions to ensure that everyone understands, and then if necessary, repeat the instructions in a different way.
Also, always learn from the other because you can have more knowledge can be received. Always respect to other professionals, and try to maintain a good atmosphere when having joint work.

Multi-disciplinary together break down their worries and achieve their requirement as much as a professional
5 strategies that a teaching assistant might use to support literacy development: 1.Improving language which means building children’s vocabulary. Vocabulary is very important. It is needed to communicate, to understand others and to express own ideas. Building and improving vocabulary will improve reading and writing skills.

Communication is a very important skill when working with young people. According to the department of health (2002), students must undertake communication skills with children, adults and people with particular communication needs. Also, communication is very important because it is through effective communication skills that social workers are able to gather information about service users, undertake assessments, interviews, engaged in problem solving and decision making (Trevithick, 2012). I was able to communicate with Peter in an anti-oppressive manner and make him feel relaxed and at ease to open up and talk to
When I signed up for carpentry, I never thought I would hate to be late for school or absent from school. I guess it just takes the right activity for someone to feel like I do now.

Philosophy of early childhood math education In math education, I want children to have the ‘I CAN’ spirit regardless of any difficulties they might face. My philosophy is represented by the acronyms I, C, A and N. ‘I’ in my philosophy stands for interaction. Interaction is essential because it is through interactions that children learn more; build social skills as well as allowing the teacher to observe if the children need more attention in certain areas. I agree with Vygotsky (as cited in Berk, 2013) that social interaction between children and more knowledgeable adults is necessary for children to acquire understanding and behaviour. Therefore, not only children to children interaction are important, teacher to children interaction is
I classify my issue as personal health on the grounds that in my 7 habits profile, both of the sets that I talked about improving can relate to personal health. I feel this is due to the P/PC balance talks about balancing everything in life which can lead to a healthier life, and with habit three I talked about letting go of circumstances from the past. Letting go of these circumstances from the past can improve my health as it would be letting go of a stress factor. The resources that I will need to work on these issues include, but are not limited to, my phone to keep in contact with people, a planner to keep my days organized, and daily time to myself with no contact other people. Having my phone to keep in contact with people will allow me to keep my relationships in good standing, keeping my days organized will help to keep my priorities straight as I lose sight of what I want by becoming distracted by the tv, and daily time to myself without contact with others will give me time to improve the thoughts running through my head in my own time.

Making sure that the practitioner shows interest when approaching the children and while speaking to them, it is also essential to be clear, concise, according to the age and support their needs and abilities. On one side, this involves using phrases and words that the children can understand and the other side, actively listening to the children and responding positively to whatever they have to say. For e.g. getting down to their level when the practitioner is communicating and smiling and reacting in a positive way. • Encourage verbal communication: encouraging the children to express themselves which means teaching them the difference between what is appropriate and verbalisation.
We have a responsibility to these children to be committed to them, to help them achieve to their highest potential and to respect and to support any disabilities or special needs that a child may have. It is very important that we create a safe and healthy environment so that children can grow socially, cognitively and can physically develop. It is also very important that we respect their self-worth and what they can contribute when they are in class every day. It is also vital that we as educators acknowledge and value a child’s culture, language, ethnicity and family structure and that we are able to provide the help they will need to learn English and help them to keep and honor their home language. The Ethical Responsibilities to Family section (2005), family is very important in the development of children and I have to agree that developing a good relationship with
Why is the strategy appropriate for ELL instruction? Explain how instructional activities will be differentiated. This strategy is appropriate for ELL instruction because an anticipation guide can be completed orally. Students can express their thoughts about a story by speaking to a partner or to a teacher.

I have informed my mentor about Mrs. A’s concerns and she was given comprehensive information about the support groups and organisations that are there to help her and her family during her admission (NICE, 2011). Besides, providing therapeutic communication to encourage the patient to give consent to the admission is an act of beneficence because it prevents causing harms and improves the patient’s wellbeing (Edwards, 2009). It was a good experience for me since I have learned the importance of communication as one of the fundamental aspects in nursing (Balzer Riley, 2000). I have learned that therapeutic communication works wonders. I was complimented by my mentor who boosted my confidence and encouraged me to continue doing better since provision of reassurance and honest compliment from the preceptor is a foundation for student development and independence (Ingwerson, 2014).

The solution to overcoming this barrier would be cultural competence training. Cultural competence training has shown great promise at improving the knowledge, attitudes, and skills of health professionals when it comes to working with diverse populations (Mareno, 2014). I find that it would be good for every organization to establish a generalized diversity training for all staff to take. This training could discuss that its okay to ask a patient about their cultural and how we as a care provider could better meet their needs. This training could also discuss the topic of being self-aware.
