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.
Explain how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of personal factors.

Nature and Nurture Influences on Child Development Karla White ECE 205: Introduction to Child Development Instructor: Alesia Lane October 2, 2017 Nature and Nurture Influences on Child Development Describe the relationship between nature versus nurture. The nature vs. nature debate is the scientific, cultural, and philosophical debate about whether human culture, behavior, and personality are caused primarily by nature or nurture. Nature is often defined in this debate as genetic or hormone-based behaviors. Our genes determine the different traits that we have, such as eye color, hair, ear size, height and other traits.
In the contemporary times, great importance is given to the significance of early years of a child’s life. It is widely acknowledged now-a-days that the early childhood years are a predominantly receptive phase in the developmental process. This stage is responsible to lay a foundation in early days and later years for cognitive functioning, learning process, physical wellbeing, and self-regulatory capacities in both personal and social lives. In simple words, “the period from birth to age 5 is one of opportunity and vulnerability for healthy physical, emotional, social, and cognitive development” (Karoly, Kilburn & Cannon, 2005). However, it is also a fact that many children go through several stressors during their developmental years due to which their healthy development may be impaired.
Initial academic skills are tied back with the home environment, where low literacy environments and chronic stress negatively affect a student’s academic skills. The school systems in low socioeconomic communities are often under resourced, negatively affecting students’ academic progress inadequate education and increased dropout rates affect children’s academic achievement, disseminating the low socioeconomic status of the community. Improving school systems and early intervention programs may help to reduce these
The Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) was introduced into England and Wales to try and provide a standard framework for childrenâ€TMs care, learning and development. It followed on from the government report Every Child Matters (ECM) which described how all children should achieve outcomes; â€¢ Staying safe â€¢ Being healthy â€¢ Enjoying and achieving â€¢ Making a positive contribution â€¢ Achieving economic well-being The government provides funding for every child aged 3 and 4 to receive 15 hours a week Early Years education (38 weeks a year). This follows the EYFS and it enables children from all social backgrounds to have the same opportunity to receive education and therefore more easily achieve the outcomes above.
Recent legislation requires schools to implement a Response to Intervention (RTI) model that is based on multi-tiered systems of support (MTSS). The goal of RTI is to identify students early who are struggling academically or behaviorally and provide appropriate interventions to prevent these challenges from becoming more serious and detrimental to their success. Under the traditional system, students may not receive extra services until a problem becomes severe, and they meet criteria for a special education qualification. RTI helps schools identify children earlier using systematic and scientific universal screeners of all children. Therefore, RTI gives students who are at-risk the opportunity to receive less intensive intervention services,

Hurried childhood is one of the current issues in Australian society. People are pushing childhood to adult age to be compatible with the growing demands of present society. There is no doubt about it that “being a kid just ain’t what it used to be” (New Internationalist, 2002). Children are expected to learn more than they are capable, which has given birth to hurried childhood. The purpose of this report is to discuss the impact of hurried childhood on children’s learning and development.
THE IMPORTANCE OF EARLY CHILDHOOD EDUCATION IN THE USA 1.Introduction Early childhood is an essential stage of life in terms of a child 's physical, intellectual, emotional and social development. Growth of mental and physical abilities progress at an amazing rate and a very high proportion of learning takes place from birth to age six. It is a time when children particularly need high quality personal care and learning experiences. Approximately 60 to 70 percent of preschool-age children in the USA attend an early childhood program or child care program out of the home, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
The environment where a child is been raised plays a huge role on its psychological development. There are a lot of environmental influences that might affect their overall development and behavior. These influences might come from a prenatal environment, physical environment, social environment, cultural environment, learning environment, economic environment, emotional environment and family environment. All these environments are important for the success and for the happiness throughout their lifecourse. According to the World Health Organization, the first 8 years of life will affect a child’s health, education and economic participation for the rest of its life.
Having the right knowledge, skills and experience in understanding how children or young people develop are very important tools for early years practitioners. We must put to mind that each child born to this world is unique; they are born with different characters and their personalities and behaviours are formed and influenced by variety of factors. These factors may affect their ways of interacting to the environment and community or setting in which they live in.
In this case the larger role to achieving equity would be not depriving children with disabilities of the example and stimulation provided by high achievers which assigns them to low-achievement due to low expectations. Children with disability under this type of grouping will always be labeled as low achievers and be grouped as slow students. Once categorized, they generally stay at that level for their school careers, and the gap between achievement levels becomes exaggerated over time. The notion that students ' achievement levels at any given time will predict their achievement in the future becomes a self-fulfilling
