Criteria 1.1-1.3 Effective communication is a skill that is necessary making and maintaining new relationships with both, children and adults. It is all about making the contact with others and being understood.
Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership. For the best results, all information must be available. This enables different disciplines to share their skills resulting in more effective support and outcomes for the child. Colleagues Working closely with colleagues and sharing information, such as observations, can add to a greater understanding of the child and their development. Working as a partnership helps to provide a good level
1.1 Explain how to recognise and build on the strengths of a child or young person by giving different examples of positive strategies. There are a variety of different ways you can recognise and build on the strengths of a child, some of these strategies include: circle time, helping the child adapt to the environment, helping a child develop self-esteem, partaking in sport activities, reading and listening and many more. In order to help build on a Childs strengths you will need to identify what their strengths are. Strengths can include having a positive attitude towards certain activities, seeing an interest from the child/young person in a specific activity and excelling in academic studiers. Communication is extremely important as you need it to understand the Childs feelings and to assess their behaviour towards their strengths and also their weakness.
Effective communication can benefit your working role especially relationships between you and the children in your care or key children you or your colleagues and between you and parents. When communicating with children you need to be at their level and having eye contact is important. Its good to take time and allow time for the child to absorb what's said and maybe relay back to you what you have said, use open-ended questions to understand the point that being made, be open-minded and try to understand their point of view, use age-appropriate language maybe alongside pictorial communication or these can be used alone , be consistent and use positive body language, when talking ensure your showing respect for where you talk and the way you talk. When communicating with parents its so important that they feel you understand, listen, care about what they are saying and that they feel you value their child's development to ensure this you should have a range of effective communication methods like telephone,email,face to face and home communication books.
E7- Collate evidence which describes the role of the practitioner in meeting children’s learning needs. A1- Include a reflective account of the role of the practitioner in supporting the learning needs of children. The role of the practitioner is a variety of things that include being key worker this means that practitioners have a small group of children each that are there key children. it is then their job to observe and assess them and keep them on track with their development looking for any extra support that they need and if so then they need to put practice in place to help the children achieve the development milestones. Practitioners need to praise children and encourage them to succeed in their learning and give them the support they need.
1.1 Different reasons why people communicate. When in early years setting, people communicate for a range of purposes, such as, to give/receive information or instructions, to discuss an issue, to express needs/opinions and to develop their own learning. When those, who provide care for children and young people, communicate, their practice becomes better adapted and communication is vital to work together as a team. According to K.Beith et al “as an early years practitioner, the way you communicate with adults will also affect the quality of care provided for the children” and it is important to communicate effectively to ensure that everyone has clear information and can understand your actions. (Beith.K et al,Pg.2, Level 2 certificate for the Children and young people’s workforce, 2010, Heinemann, Harlow) When I work with children I communicate with children and young people to build relationships, verbal or non-verbal communication may be used to help children and young people feel welcome and valued, and to co-ordinate activities.
TDA 3.1 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults 1.1 Communication means passing information from one person to another. It can be interchange of opinions, thoughts or information via speech, signs or writing between two or more people. When communication is clear, precise and easily understood, it is known as effective communication and significant in personal as well as professional settings. Effective communication is important for children as it helps them to achieve. When there is effective communication between children and adults, children will have proper understanding of what they are expected to do and how they are expected to behave.
2.3 Explain how theories of development and frameworks to support development influence current practice. Theories of development and frameworks to support development are incredibly important to us when working with children. They help us to understand children, how they react to things, situations, their behaviour and the way they learn. Different theories and ways of working with children have come together to provide frameworks for children’s care, such as Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) which is used within all child care settings. This encourages us to work together, help and check the development of babies, children and young people, to keep them healthy and safe.
