TDA 2.3: Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults. 1 Know how to interact with and respond to children and young people. 1.1 Describe how to establish respectful, professional relationships with children and young people. When working within a classroom the children they are taught to call you Miss, Mrs or Mr and your surname so they understand who is in charge and it also shows respect for authority. You need to speak to the children in a way in which they understand for the age range you are working with to explain what they need to do.
Support learning activities 5.1 Explain the Importance of Evaluating Learning Activities. We are evaluate learning activities in order in to see what is and isn’t working. This allows us to evaluate how the learning activities are been received by the children. Evaluation is important as it helps out when planning and helps you to think about the learning that has taken place. Spending time going through the learning activities and seeing how children have responded to a certain task or question, can really help change it for future activities.
One service user is non verbal and uses little Makaton, the other service users have learning difficulties and have different levels of verbal communication, such as short sentences, one or two worded answers/ questions. The majority of the service users are unable to read and write and therefore rely on staff intervention for this. I have set up communication passports for each service user, this is supporting new staff, New professionals, hospital staff to understand each individual clients communication needs and how they communicate with people, so they will be able to communicate effectively, the other person knowing or having more insight to their level of communication. We have picture board menus, similar to PECS at work where the clients can see and choose what they would like for their meal times, this is done on a weekly basis. We have implemented picture references for the service user who is non verbal, so he can associate these pictures with places and behaviours etc.
Whether to work with disadvantaged children who help preschoolers get ready for school, they all want to help children on their own way and have a specific desire to that discourse community. In conclusion, as you can see here teachers have a unique discourse community of their own. Discourse communities can be unique to the individual or be as broad a being a citizen of the United States. The idea is that the members of the discourse community share interest, values, and language specific to that group. Being a teacher, you share many interests, values, certain language, specific child developmental language and purpose for doing the work they
The child may have hurt themselves and by communicating with the nursery staff they can get the help that they need. They also need to be able to communicate with you if they are having any trouble at home or even at the nursery with other children or other members of staff, so that you can try your best to help them solve these issues or atleast get them the help and support that they may need. Communication is also very important as it is a form of learning this could be helping the child understand the difference between right and wrong and the helping them gain the educational knowledge that they should be recieving while they are in your care in an nursery. Staff - Staff: Members of staff communicate with each other so that the day to day running of the nursery goes to plan, it is important to talk to each other so that you can pass important imformation about the children to all the staff in the room that need to know ie: if a child is sick and has medicine that they need to be taking or if a child has any dietry requirements etc. They also should inform eachother of any falls or accidents that the child may have had so that if you are on your break or have finished your shift then atleast the handover to the childs parent or gaurdian can be as informed as possible so that anyone in the room can tell parents if their child had a fall and what happened not just say "i do not know i was not there when it happened but i think that they may have fallen etc" this makes the whole room look
Writing a Behaviour Plan Behaviour Plans ensure consistency when managing a child/young person’s behaviour and helps us to look at things we can change to support the child/young person, rather than trying to change them. Environment The environment we provide has a direct impact on a young person’s behaviour. We need to consider what we can do or change in the environment to support the child. For example, looking at how playworkers are deployed at possible trigger times, use of visual support, organisation of routines and or resources. Supporting the development of new play skills After identifying what the child is trying to communicate through their behaviour we can identify what new skills the child needs to learn.
Teaching assistant Diploma level 3 Assignment Two Supporting the Pupil 1. Explain the five broad social and emotional aspects of learning The five broad social and emotional aspects of learning are:- Self-awareness – Children begin to understand themselves, understanding how they can learn effectively, knowing how to interact with others. They begin to consider others feelings and thoughts. Children can use these skills when planning their learning. Children can take responsibility for their actions, to feel good about their achievements and understand that their feelings and behaviour are linked.
The teachers will observe the children during free play and during assigned activities so that they can make valid notations and observations about the cognitive development of the child. Reviewers will see the teachers engaged in conversation with the children about the tasks at hand as well as seeing the teacher observing the children engaged in activities with each other. There will be files kept on each child of their progress and on what they will receive extra help on. The folder will also include small observations like if the child shared with another student without being told to do so, or if the student assists another student willingly, all of this information will be available for the parents and
Other teachers and T.A’s from the same year group may be present here to share suggestions and advice. Teaching assistants should be a lot more actively involved in delivering learning activities. This may be by setting up the room with the correct resources before the lesson takes place and laying out the tables and chairs etc. One to one support may be needed for some pupils; this should have been discussed before the lesson. It may be that the T.A is put to work with one specific table/group of children or just float around the classroom and be available if any of the children ask for help.
