These methods of communication can be useful for building vocabularies of individuals with limited speech. Other individuals may have a vast vocabulary, but due to rigid sets of interests may only use repetitive speech which means their communication can be out of context, making conversations difficult. 2. - Problems that individuals with an autistic spectrum condition may have in social interaction and relationships Due to the social difficulties linked with autism, individuals often find social interaction and the building of relationships very difficult. Individuals with autism often have difficulties reading non-verbal forms of communication, such as body language, and find it hard to relate to other people’s feelings and emotions, which can effect their responses to a social situation as they will appear out of context or inappropriate.
UNIT 4222-378 (LD 310) Outcome 1 1. People on the autistic spectrum have share certain difficulties, their condition effect them in different ways. Some people with autism are able to live reactively independent lives but others may have accompanying learning disabilties and need a life time of specialist support. Therefore its important that we recognise each person on the spectrum will need different type of support. 2 Triad of impairments is the term that describes the difficulties that people with autism experience in differing degrees.
Aggression/ Aggressiveness: this is how the emotion is manifested. Challenging behaviour: This is behaviour that has been considered by society as not normal and challenging in everyday life. (“Culturally abnormal behaviour(s) of such an intensity, frequency or duration that the physical safety of the person or others is likely to be placed in serious jeopardy, or behaviour which is likely to seriously limit use of, or result in the person being denied access to, ordinary community facilities.” Emerson, (1995, 2001): An example of this would be a child or young adult with a condition/disorder such as ADHD or other significant individuals suffering from similar learning disabilities or disorders. It is behaviour that is viewed by many public members in today’s society as “problem behaviour”, that the particular individual who is behaving shouldn’t be demonstrating at their particular age. This type of behaviour takes more time to resolve and manage.
Effective communication is important because it can reduce anxiety and confusion, it can improve the relationship between you and the individual, it will build trust between you, improve co-operation and allow you to feel more successful as a caregiver. 1.4 Describe how different forms of dementia may affect the way an individual communicates. It is important to remember that the difficulties and symptoms
Some of the symptoms of distress are mumbled/garbled speech or stammering, anxiety, anger, aggressive body language and concentrating problems. These are barriers that impact on effective communication, leading to misunderstanding on both sides. If you are the person in distress, you cannot hear or able to understand the whole picture because of the vicious cycle mentioned above. Individuals who are distressed will not be able to concentrate properly or focus fully, therefore their communication skills will be negatively affected. Whenever an individual becomes distressed they may experience the sense of "self" being compromised, as in low self esteem, effective communication may suffer as an individual feels withdrawn or stressed.
This proposes that children have a very difficult time to see things from other person’s point of view. How their own or the others behaviour could cause something else. When a person is having a conversation, we use or analyse the context and behaviour of the other to understand the meaning of what they are trying to say. We also put ourselves in their position, which is very difficult for children with autism. They can’t comprehend that others might have different sort of beliefs other than
It is difficult to know if someone has walked away or speaking to them or someone else. Also written information can be difficult the text and numbers can be to small. This might lead blind or partially sighted people to stop using some of the ways of communication. Hearing loss causes problems with face to face communication and people often miss what’s being said and often rely on their eyesight to compensate for their hearing loss and watch people’s faces to gain clues about what people are saying and to respond the right way. People who are losing both hearing and vision will find it difficult to look for clues.
1.1 Describe how memory impairment can affect the ability of an individual with dementia to use verbal language. Words are hard to come by and they can struggle over the appropriate word to the point that it interrupts their flow of conversation; sometimes they will select the wrong word. This is very frustrating but in some forms of dementia it can also mean they lose short term memory and will repeat themselves, not remembering that they have told you about their day or not remembering your answers e.g. asking over and over is it Thursday today? This makes conversation stilted and difficult to maintain.
Unit 34 - Introductory Awareness of Sensory Loss 1-1.1 Many factors could be impacted by sensory loss. Mobility could be impared, for example, someone with sight or hearing loss (or both) may not want to walk outside, or use public trasport. A deaf or deaf blind person may find it difficult to communicate, making it hard to socialise and new relationships. They might also find it hard to get information about things, eg. trasport, appointments, benefits etc.
someone from Newcastle might find it hard to understand someone from south wales. People who suffer with Dementia often find it hard to understand what others are communicating to them as they may only register part of a conversation or lose the normal social conventions of language and interrupt the speaker before they have finished. Good clear communication skills are essential; speaking slowly and clearly, using facial expressions and gestures and being patient and calm. 5) You could contact the association that is specific to that persons communication need e.g. Stroke, Deaf, Blind Associations depending on which one they needed to help them, these associations are there to offer advice and guidance on what you can do to help communicate better with the service user.
