(1) Describe the benefits to individuals of engaging in learning or development activities The benefits to individuals of engaging in learning activities are countless. This is something deeply true for everybody, for people with learning disabilities who, somehow, might benefit the most from those kinds of opportunities, for children and young individuals who have to learn in order to face life and actually survive, to adults because learning is the key to defeat several kinds of mental problems and to keep our brains active and in good working health. And least but not last it is an excellent activity for us, support staff and carers, because it keeps us more aware of what is going on, allow us to better understand our clients and be more compassionate towards them and furthermore, it is also through learning that we can develop new ways to help our clients and provide high quality standards care. And it also helps with the aging process and coping, if not preventing several psychological and mental health issues.

Respect, which includes listening to people accepting that people communicate in different ways and valuing that they communicate in different ways. This allows the child plenty of time to respond to the actions/tasks, even if it takes them longer than others to do this.

I believe learning is continual growth in the brain's functionality in which all social practices are contextualised. Learning is not the quickly forgotten stuff that is crammed into the mind, but an insatiable curiosity that drives learners to absorb everything they can see, hear or read (Rogers, 1983). Deep and lifelong learning happens when learner develops an ability to reflect on his own thinking, becomes a self regulated learner, and builds capacity to monitor and manage his learning. I believe learning is innate (Plato, 380 BCE) but it needs development and growth by the learner. The human brain has the power to think and construct new learning through the transformation of experience (Kolb, 1984) and social interaction (Vygotsky,1934).

Definition of a Learning Organisation The ‘Learning Organisation’ has a number of definitions by various theorists. A learning organisation is one which is open to change and development.

It attempts to give its reader an understanding of the relationship between people’s emotions and their actions. Specifically in the situations similar to the conflict that I descreibed from my childhood. The information found in Golemans book can be extremely useful in everyday life.
They are just for fun some would argue. Agreeing that these classes are fun, they also have a much greater purpose. Every lesson or project that is planned and taught keeps the development and an entire person in consideration. Meaning fine art helps in the social, cognitive, physical, and emotional parts of development. Looking towards more of the physical area, fine arts classes help with fine motor skills.

One of the most effective reasons for using biofeedback is to use it as a teaching aid. This is because effective learning requires precise and timely information about the quality of the performance given by the athlete. This is extremely true for cognitive, psychomotor, and affective domains. When feedback is timely is allows individual assessment of performance and identifying areas for improvement.

A timetable of who is in school on what days will help you to best utilise the resources available, along with a timetable for the children attending the LSU. This ability to work flexibly and creatively with your colleagues will ultimately provide good quality learning support within the school. Being trust worthy and honest are also important qualities that will enable you to effectively manage the support staff. Mutual trust and respect for your colleague 's area of expertise and not thinking you can do it all by yourself, will stand a HLTA in good stead! The majority of teaching staff, support assistants and volunteers are there because they love what they do, so being enthusiastic and motivating the team to do their best shouldn 't be too difficult!
