How to monitor children and young people's development and interventions that should take place if this is not following the expected pattern. There are a number of ways to monitor children, observation methods are: check lists, are popular because they are easy to use they can focus on a particular aspect of child development. the observer either watches the child as they play or asks the child to do something like hop on one foot if the child can do it then the observer ticks the box. Events record, this is to look at when unwanted behaviour is used be a child, a prepared sheet of paper is drawn up before hand with the type of information that needs to be collected a column for each piece of information, when the behaviour is seen. time sampling, time sampling is done over a morning or afternoon it allows the observer to gain a better picture of the child.
1.1 Explain the value of a child centred model of assessment and planning Child centred assessment and planning is a good way to make sure that the setting is giving the children attending the best possible chance to develop at their own rate. This is done by observation as it enables you to get to know the individuality of the child, ensuring that they are well placed and able to plan and all of their individual needs are met. I feel that in my role, observations take place each day through activities and interaction with the child. Assessing children is an on-going process, routines and activities can also build on information needs and interests. Assessments can also be made by other professionals, including doctors, social workers, occupational
Adapting the environment to help children with their speech and language needs can be done by using visual signs that children can understand, for example you could label the home corner, dress up area, book corner and so on. Signs can also help show the child what to do, for example you could have a step by step of how to wash your hands properly. 1.2 Compare the difference between strategies based on children and young people’s strengths and abilities and those based around children’s

Proven Benefits of Early Childhood Interventions The purpose of this article is to show the effects of early childhood intervention in the early years of a child’s life. Early childhood intervention programs intervene in situations where poor outcomes that can impair healthy development in a child. These programs provide support for parents, child, and family members as a whole whether it be by learning activities for the child, training and encouraging parents, and enhancing the caregiving environment. The key benefits of early childhood intervention program benefits are in academic achievement, behavior, educational progression, delinquency and crime reduction, and success in the workforce. These programs also have benefits in health and reduce child maltreatment, behavior, cognition, and emotional.
Children are also encouraged help one another. They are taught to ask for help from another child before coming to a teacher. I plan activities that require cooperation and group work so that children will work together to solve problems and be attentive to other’s needs. The children make our room a better place by being empathetic and helpful to others. In my program I want children to be independent and make positive choices.
NAEYC Codes of Ethics Core Values *Appreciate childhood as a unique and valuable stage of the human life. Appreciating childhood could affect teaching in the classroom because you would know how to teach them better. I think that you would also be able to come up with more developmentally appropriate activities for the children. *Base our work on knowledge of how children develop and learn. By basing knowledge on how children develop and learn, it can help make more developmentally appropriate activities.
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.
The Early Years Framework also believes that when professionals work together the results are better. This is because a professional such as speech therapist can contribute a qualified understanding of a child’s difficulties, which can then be passed onto the child’s key worker to highlight what are the child’s needs and what can be done to concentrate on improving on difficulties. In the mean time, if all the people involved in a child’s life are aware of what that child needs, then development can move faster as the focus is directed on what needs to be done. However if there was not the sense of team work, then one individual may struggle to make the same contributions to the child’s needs and lack the time needed to support he child. The importance of multi-agency working is that it provides a tailored service of exactly the right professionals giving an educated support.
Playing and learning in children’s education E1/A In (appendices 1), the Nursery World article written by Fisher. J (2012) talks about how the role of the practitioner should plan for a balance between adult –led learning and child –led learning. This means that the adult needs to observe children closely to see how they are developing. When the practitioner stands back during child-led play, they can gain lots of information about a child, how they use their environments and resources. This helps to meet their learning needs if the practitioner then uses this information to plan the next steps.
