Other barriers such as if a person is in a wheel chair and they go to reception, the window may be too high for them to speak to the person. Some people judge others because of where they are from. * Emotional barriers- the topic of conversation may be too hard for someone to talk about, * Labelling, stereotyping, social context- people may exclude others that to them do not ‘fit in’ because they don’t have the latest fashion, mobile phone or money. People making assumptions because of what they have heard or seen. * Jargon/ slang-when a practitioner uses technical language a parent may not understand, such as a parent may not understand what a CAF, IEP, or PEP plan is. Slang using language that not everyone uses. * Confidence, children or people that are confident are more than likely to form relationships with others
