However, the two mentioned ways to overcoming language barrier in the implementation of anti-discriminatory practice in health and social care, the training of staff on how to communicate better with service users for them to understand is the best. This is because the training encompasses all methods, ways and means that must be considered when communicating with people to ensure that they understand clearly what they have being told.

Through the learning from week 1 and week 2, I have learnt that the most frequent adverse event in health-care delivery is health care-associated infections. It is essential for us to follow the infection control practices that both patients and us are at a risk of being infected. Standard Precautions involve the use of safe work practices and protective barriers, for example, the use of personal protective equipment(PPE). At first, I think Standard Precautions are very easy. Everyone knows PPE can protect us from infections and hand hygiene is important throughout the process. However, what I ignored and did wrong were the correct sequences of wearing PPE and how to use them correctly. The sequences are totally different when taking on and
The negatives effects – would be that the carer could be stressed about looking after the infant as they might be too small for them to hold or carry. There are many negative effects as looking after infants can be quite hard and upsetting at times. Also, an effect linked to this would be stress of responsibility the informal carer might think that they might drop the baby and don’t want to risk that happening so they just play with her/him on a little play mat but, on a safe place like a seat or bed with a border. Another negative effect would be that maybe they couldn’t supply for the infant like buying nappies or powered milk etc. In addition, being bored of looking after the baby as they are too little and the carer can’t play with them
The NHS Community Care Act 1990, this legislation states that any one aged eighteen years or over is entitled to help or require a service from a local authority. Everyone has the right to have their needs assessed and the care that is being provided, should be tailored to meet an individual’s needs to enable them to live in their own homes.

Those involved in this assessment will be social work who will take the lead on the case, Mary and her family, doctors or nurses and carers. Under the Social

While each person with autism displays different characteristics and degrees, some of the most common are difficulty with social interaction, language and behavior. Autism symptoms often can be described as having a lack of attachment, a disassociation with the environment, distractibility, hyperactivity and a negative emotional response to touch sensations.
Since the early 1960s, autistic children have been the subject when it comes to studies for applied behavior analytic (ABA) treatment (Smith & Antolovich, 2000). Autistic children who participate in ABA treatment also receive numerous types of programs (Smith & Antolovich, 2000). For instance, children take part in speech, sensorimotor integration, play therapy and etc (Smith & Antolovich, 2000). These interventions may complement behavior analytic treatment by enhancing children's skills or reducing maladaptive behaviors that hinder children's progress, such as aggression or stereotypes (Smith & Antolovich, 2000). The researchers try to limit the use of this treatment that by turning their limited resources into interventions that can be harmful or not very effective (Smith & Antolovich, 2000).
By creating cool classes for students with disabilities, schools will be the second home to children with such deficiencies. An environment that is conducive for normal students may not be so for their counterparts with disabilities. A teacher can set a classroom so that it can accommodate everyone, especially children with autism. Children with autism are the most prepared to learn when their learning environment is conducive for them (Kluth, 2010).
