This development is important for children’s holistic development as this will help the children to socialise and help them express what they like and need, this will get them to have more sense about the world.

Adults should praise children a lot so they have the encouragement try new things but it is important you adults to give them feedback so that they can learn from right and wrong. If some
Intervention should start as early as possible, like when parents begin to notice their child is not developing as expected and they voice these concerns. A common response is “they will grow out of it or we will just wait and see”. But, the longer the wait the more difficulties the child and family will have. The earlier a problem is identified, the earlier intervention can begin, which leads to the likelihood of the child learning the skills they need to communicate, engage in social interactions and manage behaviors. Research shows that children who receive early intervention services are more likely to have improved long-term outcomes. These services address communication, play, problem behaviors and skill development. When children are young, their brain plasticity is high, which is the optimal time for development and learning of skills should occur. The older the child, the more difficult it is to grow these skills.

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

Issues of concern, children’s needs, harms, risks and protective factors in this case study are illustrated in this section through the use of social work knowledge, theories and values. The children’s needs can be assessed through the use of The Barker and Hodes Common Assessment Framework (CAF). This tool provides a nationally standardised approach to assessing children and young person’s in need and deciding how the needs should be met. The CAF focuses on three areas including developmental needs, parenting capacity and family and environmental factors (Barker & Hodes, 2007). It also takes into account the parent’s ability and willingness to take responsibility and work with professionals to achieve change. The Turnell and Edwards Signs of Safety which is a strengths based, safety oriented approach can also be utilised alongside the CAF. This strategy aims to work with all individuals involved in the case to assess and plan safety and reduce risk and danger through focusing on the resources and networks that the family has (Signs of Safety, 2015). This approach involves the issues of concern, strengths already
Several organisations have been set up to assist or care for children who are primarily vulnerable; the trustees are responsible for ensuring that those benefitting from, or working with, are not abused in any way through contacts with it; they have a legal duty to act cautiously and this means that they must take all realistic steps within their power to ensure that this does not happen.

Many if not all children at some point experience fears in their childhood; such fears might include fear of monsters, of the dark, strangers, and creepy crawlies. In developmental psychology these fears are normal parts of children’s progression as they age and are usually temporary. On the hand, when there are circumstances that are dangerous and constantly causing fear and anxiety they can foresee crucial long-term risks that can have detrimental issues on a child. Many factors can cause anxiety and fear in children - some of these would include emotional, sexual and physical abuse; the constant threat

Between birth to 6 months babies and children use their senses to become aware e.g. knowing they are hungry, as well as recognising key people in their lives and responding to physical smiles. In the next 6 months, they are beginning to understand tone of voice and begin to have favourite toys. Between 1 to 2 years children start to use objects correctly e.g. a cup. At this point they have a rapidly extending vocabulary and show awareness of others. 3 to 4 years is the age when children are fascinated by why things happen. By age 4 they can give reasons for their actions, remember major events and sort objects by colour and size.
The 1800’s marked the foundation of modern era studies of child development. Prior, children were viewed as inherently evil (original sin view) and at some point as “a blank blanket” that inherits characteristics through child experiences (tabula rasa view) (Santrock, 2011). Comprehending child development is a pivotal aspect of Child and Youth Development (CYD). With an understanding of child development, Child and Youth Care (CYC) workers can improve their approaches to children. For the purpose of this essay, a child developmental theory will be referred to as an approach and development will be defined as “the pattern of movement or change that begins at conception and continues through the life span” (Santrock, 2011, pp.6).
