Being part of a team will allow the practitioner to get their thoughts across to other organisations that will be working with them about what they think is best for the child and closely work on it. If the practitioner won’t be playing a part as being an effective team member then it will result in poor practitioner and also some of the child’s needs might not be met. The second skill is being able to do observations on the child as to what their needs are, how they are being met and if some of the needs are not being addressed properly then why.
