What is happening in the child’s environment. It also includes whether the child has any additional needs or which children/people are around the child as the child may act differently around different groups of friends and different members of staff. To assess young children in a setting you follow the EYFS (Early Years Foundation Stage) the EYFS give guidelines as to what a child should achieve at what age or stage. To find out what stage a child is achieving members of staff, especially the key person, perform observations and record these. These observations should cover all areas which are Physical development, Communication and language, Literacy, Personal, social and education, Maths, Art and design and Understanding the world.
Considering the work of key pioneers and current experts with links to child development theory. There are many theories about how children learn and develop. This area of study is called developmental psychology which covers subjects such as cognitive, language and emotional development. The research methods are based heavily on the on going assessments carried out by observing children over a period of time. Assessment is part of the process of understanding what children know, understand and can do so that future teaching steps can be appropriately planned.
These include auditory assessments, health assessments - these include height, weight, and head measurements and tests carried out by educational psychologists. Many children at schools will be assessed by using Cognitive Aptitude Tests. It is said that in the early years sector, monitoring and assessing children should be carried out by a wide range of people who are involved in the child's
Emotional, Behavioral, and Physical Disabilities Emotional, Behavioral, and Physical Disabilities In an inclusive classroom, a teacher is going to have a variety of students, some with a variety of disability and disorders. The first step of trying to find an effective way to educate all students, is to get to know them. For those with disabilities, gets to know what their disability entails, such as students with emotional and behavioral disorders, physical and health disabilities, and traumatic brain injuries. Once a teacher knows what a disability entails, the educator can find effective teaching strategies, find ways nurture self-esteem, self-determination, and self-advocacy, and find ways to teach all students to respect one another.

It is useful in deciding whether the child is reaching expected milestones of development in different areas. The assessment framework is how children are assessed in school, for example, in my setting when a child reads, we write it in their planners. Standard measurements: School tests or cognitive aptitude tests that demonstrate a snapshot of children's academic ability or skill at retaining taught information and that might then be used to compare outcomes between children of the same age. Health programmes that might measure head circumference, weight, height, visual and auditory functioning. Educational psychologists may use reasoning tests to assess an intellectual age in contrast to a chronological age.
Educational Psychology. Teachers could apply psychology principles to diagnose and treat behavior and learning problems in their students. They also work with educators and families to address behavioral and academic concern at school and how the family or school could help with the concern and treat it accordingly. Educational psychology both comes from and contributes to cognitive science and the learning sciences. Educational Psychology is useful to determine how an educator and the students’ family can help and work with the student in order for the student to progress.
Different techniques could include; sign language, adapting the classroom activities or even the classroom itself as well as the use of specialist equipment. Special educational needs can come in a variety of forms, but tend to include; Communication Difficulties and Cognitive or Learning Difficulties such as speech and language problems, autism, deafness, blindness or visual impairment. Pupils with these special needs may have difficulties with things such as; language, memory and reasoning skills, problem solving, movement skills, understanding numbers, problem solving and organisational skills. Other supportive needs that pupils might have could be; emotional, hyperactivity, disruptive, withdrawn or isolated. The children outlined above are the more typical examples someone might think of when we mention special educational needs.
Amelia White November 17, 2013 SPE-226 Crystal McCabe Educating Special Needs Students There are numerous types of disabilities a child may have that affect different areas; intellectual disability, autism, severe disabilities, and multiple disabilities are a few disabilities that affect learning.Children with disabilities can learn and are entitled to a free appropriate education. Disabled children being placed in general education classes allows them to interact and learn with their peers but it is important to remember that many times curricula for severely disabled individuals are home and personal skills. Severe or multiple disabilities children will require accommodations and modification to insure they obtain an appropriate education.
Resource 2: SIOP Lesson Plan (Rhyming) Zenetta Bronson Grand Canyon University: ESL 533N Advanced Methodologies of SEI January 29, 2014 Teachers should prepare a lesson that targets a specific learning goal which allows students to make connections with their own knowledge, deliver the lesson so that the students are engaged, and be able to comprehensible talk to the students so they understand. Teachers should organize the instruction to build on the relationship between students learning in their first and second language. The attached lesson was delivered in order for the children to gain some understanding of phonological awareness particularly rhyming words. Phonological awareness (or phonemic
