It may also highlight underlying difficulties such as dyslexia or learning difficulties. The Teacher may feel it is necessary to report the concerns to the Special Educational Needs Co-ordinator (SENCo) as further intervention could be required. The SENCo and teacher may then meet with the parents to discuss the concerns and agree the action they want to take. The school and parents may agree an Individual Educational Plan (IEP) which will set out targets to help the child progress. If, following assessment of this intervention, further help is needed; it may be decided to refer the child for an assessment by the Education Psychologist who can provide advice to the school on strategies to help the child.
Children will have a one on one session with their teachers so that the teachers will be able to ask questions and so will the student. There will also be small assignments that will be completed in class as well as homework that is sent home so that the children can continue to practice their skills and continue to increase their learning curve. There will also be short question and answer sessions so that the teacher can make notations of where the children need more assistance. Each method will be used for each child. 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.

Children with learning disabilities or difficulties in social settings can often experience “otherness” in a classroom. As a teacher it would be my responsibility to notice if a student was being “othered”, to identify who is participating in the “othering” of the child, and assisting the child and classmates in recognizing the changes that might need to be made to overcome whatever the reasons are behind “othering”. Paying attention to the student’s social interactions during class and at recess time would allow me to be able to notice if a child is being “othered”. In the classroom, how do the majority of students react to each child as they actively participate in classroom discussions? If most of the students scoff, eye roll, or additionally demonstrate disrespectful behaviors it would be worthwhile to monitor other classroom interactions between students.
3.3 Help children and young people to understand and respect other people’s feelings and points of view. Children and young people need to learn to understand and respect the feelings, emotions and behaviours of others to help them gain an understanding about their actions and consequences. Young children might find this difficult as their understanding will not be as developed enough for them to put themselves in the position of others, but as children grow and learn they gain a greater experience of this and often older pupils will enjoy opportunities to debate and discuss different points of view in lesson time and in social situations. We often speak to them in school about thinking of the consequences of their actions and how they might have affected others.

In this meeting we will be educating parents about the different forms of abuse namely physical, verbal and emotional abuse. This will be discussed with students as well, We will inform the parent/guardian of their child’s participation to make sure the parent is aware of their child’s response should there be a lack of interest or any concerns thereof, we will inform the respective parents or guardians. In the event that a teacher suspects that a child is being abused or any indication of neglect, the teacher will make a note in the learner’s diary to contact the parent. The process is as follows: The child is first identified by the teacher who then addresses it to the school principal. If the principal is in agreement with the teacher, the parent/ guardian will be contacted by the principal.
This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing. There may be a lot of different things going on when it comes to discipline that a parent of a student with special needs does not understand and this chapter could given them a good insight to the reasons behind the actions. Also it would give parents the resources they need to maybe challenge what the school is doing if the school does end up over stepping their role in disciplining a student
“Repetitive behavior involves repeated movements and verbalizations. These include motor movements, persistent attention to parts of objects and strict adherence to routines.” (Turnbull A, Turnbull R, Wehmeyer M, Exceptional Lives Special Education in Today’s Schools 2010). Now, with students who have autism it is very important to have a good simple routine and stick to it. And it is very important to tell them about a change at the beginning of the day rather than waiting right up until it is supposed to happen. Sticking to a routine will help things to not be so chaotic when it comes to transition time and telling the student about a change will help that student deal with that change before problem behavior can occur.
