A child’s social network and emotional development can influence development, along with the use of drugs and alcohol both (child and parent). A child may not understand what is required due to unidentified possible language delay. Child may be bored and uninterested at school. 2.2 Explain how children and young people’s development is influenced by a range of external factor External factors can have an effect on a child’s development for such poverty, deprived of food, clothes and toys. Poor living conditions, inadequate diet and exercise and quality of life, leading to increased illness.
Plus, a stressful family environment may cause a child to experience learning disabilities and possibly be of a high risk of a stress related illness. At the same time, various other elements within a child’s background may affect behaviour and development, these being; divorce, a new baby, diet, poverty and media to mention a few. Children of one parent families may suffer as the parent may work long hours leaving the child with very little support and possibly no role model to look up to. Divorce also can be very traumatic for a child. Children whose families have joined with another family and therefore have ‘step-family’ may experience unhappiness due to the child being picked on or feeling left out, this would lead to low self-esteem and they would quite possibly result in lack confidence in their own abilities.
Task: Complete the table to cover Assessment Criteria 3.1, 3.2 and 3.3 Candidates will complete the table below, giving THREE examples of transitions that affect MOST children and young people and THREE examples of transitions that affect SOME children and young people. With all examples, show how the transition may affect their behaviour and development. Transition experienced by MOST children and young people Example of possible effect on children and young people’s behaviour and development 1. Starting School Starting nursery ,school or even college is a big transition for a child/young person some children are not used to being around other children so may begin to attention seek , throw tantrums or show aggression towards others however starting school can have a positive impact as it can teach a child to be independent. Another example could be a language barrier between the child and their peers making the child feel isolated so all four types of development can affect the child when starting school.
Treatment decisions are typically based on a number of different things, including the child’s age, the severity of the behaviors, and whether the child has a coexisting mental health condition.19 eAACAP on aacap.org Because childhood and adolescent mental illnesses are real, common, and treatable ODD: A Guide for Families n 9 Oppositional Defiant Disorder: A Guide for Families is adapted from the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry’s Practice Parameter for the Assessment and Treatment of Children and Adolescents with Oppositional Defiant Disorder.

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome During pregnancy what a mother puts into her body has a great effect on the fetus. While some mothers take precautions, others are careless such as drinking alcohol.

For example, a child will regress in their development, become accident-prone, become clingy, engage in risky behaviors, and complain more about physical ailments than adults with PTSD do. Often times, traumatized children are wrongly diagnosed as having “attention deficit hyperactivity disorder” (ADHD) because of their trouble sitting still, focusing, or managing their impulses. More times than not, adults with PTSD are also either mistakenly misdiagnosed, or are also diagnosed with other disorders. These include bipolar disorder, eating disorders, and other anxiety disorders like panic disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, or obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD). If symptoms of PTSD are found in these tests, the doctor will begin another evaluation by doing a complete medical history and physical exam.
One of those birth defects is fetal alcohol syndrome or F.A.S., and as Dr. Burd explains: “The current term used to describe the full range of these problems is fetal alcohol spectrum disorder, (F.A.S.D.). Fetal alcohol syndrome (F.A.S.) is the complete manifestation and the most severe form. It is more commonly found in children that have been misdiagnosed with Spina-Bifida or Down-Syndrome. Neurological disorders can have many causes and without diagnosing correctly early on can make a difference.
PSY481U Assignment 2 Theme 1: Learning and Behaviour Disorders Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders “Children with ADHD continue to pose a considerable challenge to their families and society at large” Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder associated with socially disruptive behaviours such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Cantwell (1996) explained that these behaviours may cause significant impairment and interference in numerous areas of a child’s normal development. Furthermore, according to Tutorial letter 101 for PSY481U (2010) children with ADHD also have a consequential impact on the lives of those surrounding the child. The focus of this essay will be a discussion on the challenges
This program is different from the previous two mentioned methods because it focuses on short one-on-one counseling services done by non-trained personnel (O’Connor & Whaley, 2007). The non-trained personnel, are actually nutritionists whom were given a “step-by-step” guide on how to do a brief intervention successfully (O’Connor & Whaley, 2007). The women had monthly prenatal Women Infants and Children (WIC) visits (O’Connor & Whaley, 2007). At these WIC visits they were evaluated to see if they were continuingly consuming alcohol during their pregnancy. As nutritionist it was their duty to hold a brief intervention and bring attention to their alcohol consumption habits and the harmful consequences of consuming alcohol prenatally (O’Connor & Whaley, 2007).
