This would affect their physical development and their intellectual development, as their learning at the age of crawling is sometimes dependent on their ability to move and touch things. 2.1 Describe, with examples, the kinds of influences that affect children and young people’s development including: background, health, and environment. A child or young person’s background can influence their development. If a family has a recent breakup, if the child is suffering from bereavement or even moving house then this could affect them emotionally as well as intellectually, this could even transfer to the classroom and affect the ability for the child to learn normally. Other than the background of a child or young person their health is another influence of their development, this can include medical condition or impairment disallowing them the chance of normal activities as other children.
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.
Other behaviours that could be of concern and interfere with learning could be attention maintenance, hyperactivity, or severe withdrawal. The point of concern is if the behaviour is something that hinders the child from functioning in a productive way, it is something that should trigger a teacher to seek outside assistance. Depending on the situation different referrals may have to be used. It may be appropriate to just have support from another adult within the school. However, there is a wider range of specialist support
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.
Some children who have arrived from another country where formal education begins later may also find their intellectual development affected as they have had no previous education but could also affect their emotional and behavioural development if they feel they are not able to do what others have already learnt to do. Schools will often put appropriate support in place for children in these situations. Abuse/Neglect - If a child has suffered from any abuse or neglect it will almost certainly affect the
Language can also be a barrier; if you both do not speak the same language communication could become difficult. Distractions such as noise and things happening nearby can become a barrier especially for young children. Personal situations such as problems at home can create a barrier for both children and parents. 3.4 Identify sources of information and support of services to enable more effective communication. Sometimes help will be needed to help support and meet an individual’s needs.
This is when they can communicate with their friend and adults around them to help a person in need or to join in with games for example. 1.3) How having speech, language and communication difficulties will affect children’s development varies, because it will depend on the type and severity of the problems and the support a child receives. The short term affects can be: • Frustration •
A child with mental retardation, autism, learning disability, or attention deficit hyperactive disorder may present with behavior problems that parents described as defiant, aggressive or temper tantrums, etc. where in fact, the behaviors are related to the child's disability and possibly unrealistic expectations. Mild disabilities may not be easily detected and undesirable behavior may be mistakenly attributed to the child's
Understand how to support positive outcomes for children and young people 3.1 If a child or young person has a disability it can have a significant impact on their lives. They may face discrimination because they have a disability, this could involve not being included within groups of children, or because children and young people don’t have an understanding of what a disability is. If a child/young person with a disability is not included or given the correct support to enable them to be included they could become depressed and develop low self-esteem. If opportunities are not available to those with disabilities such as disabled access to schools, colleges and community centres these can be barriers for them trying to lead normal lives, it may cause embarrassment to the individual. If a disabled person cannot access public facilities this acts as a barrier and takes away their right as a human being to have the same chances as everybody else.
TDA 2:1 1.2 Describe with examples how different aspects of development can affect one another. Holistic development means for example – A child with a physical disability may not be able to take part in certain games, may be left out by other children. This can affect social development; it may also affect a child’s emotional development as the child may lack confidence. A child with speech impairment may have language difficulties which may lead to social skills being limited, Intellectual skills may affect reading if sounds can’t be made, emotional , may lack confidence, could lead to behavioural problems due to frustrations, could show anger or could be unnaturally quiet, shy or withdrawn. 2.1 Describe with examples the kinds of influences that affect children and young people’s development including: • Background • Health • Environment Background A young child especially is mostly influences by their parent or parents.
