After considering the child’s current progress, new targets should be set to be achieved by the next IEP review. 1.5 Explain the principles of working inclusively with disabled cyp and those with SEN The first main conclusion is that inclusive classrooms do exist throughout European countries. The evidence also suggests that what is good for pupils with special educational needs (SEN) are good for all pupils.

Thirdly: dealing with differences or diversity in the classroom forms one of the biggest problems within European classrooms.
It can outline the basis for the partial development of the right learning needs and abilities and may also be constructive preliminary stage for future learning prospects There are many rationales why it’s significant to observe and assess pupils’ development. For example, to be able to recognize the broad choice of skills in all areas of pupils development. This will help teachers and teaching assistants to set out goals that need improving and building upon current skills to allow pupils to achieve their educational attainment at different levels. Moreover it is important to observe and assess in order to identify and comprehend the cycle of development in children. This understanding should be used to connect the hypothesis and theory with my own practice as a teaching assistant within the school.
TDA 2.3 Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults In my assessment I will be looking at communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adults in schools as well as identifying and describing the key points linked to this topic. 1.1 Describe how to establish respectful, professional relationships with children and young people When building relationships with children and young people, it is vital that you adapt your behaviour and communication accordingly.

This is why demonstrating effective communication skill can be just as important as offering support. Establishing ground rules and mutual respect at the start of any relationship when working with children is vital, this will be the foundation to successfully interacting with all children regard less of their age, culture and abilities.
BE ABLE TO PROMOTE EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY IN CHILDREN AND YOUNG PEOPLE. Through research and own experiences I have come to learn about the current legislation and code’s of practice to the promotion of equality and valuing diversity. I have looked at the rights and the importance of valuing and promoting equality and diversity in work with children and young people and how it is affected by inclusion and inclusive practices and the barriers children face. 1.1 Identify current legislation and codes of practice relevant to the promotion of equality and valuing diversity. Each school must produce a range of policies which formally sets out the guidelines and procedures for ensuring equality.

Inclusion and inclusive education are quite broad in definition, however with the support of this unit my professional understanding of inclusion has been formed by research and practices such as all student engagement, asking the question how? we can provide for diverse needs (Spandagou, Lecture 2), also Standard 1 of the Disability Education Standards (2005) identifies the need to know our students and how they learn, thus the need for personalised learning plans. The IPAA is an incredible framework, a reflective tool to assist teachers in achieving an inclusive approach to education, teaching and learning which helps to achieve standards 5 & 6 in the Disability Standards for Education (Florian, 2014, p.293). I agree with Foreman (2008) in his argument for inclusion as a concept which extends beyond the immediate environment and education to society itself. It is not ignorable the fact of discrimination and unsettlement of people around others with disability and lack of education about various disabilities and additional needs is concerning.
Promoting Inclusion Equality And Diversity Within Learners Theory 3 As a tutor my aim is for the students to gain competence in and a full understanding of the subject. In order for students to do this it is important for the tutor to be mindful of the issues concerning equality, diversity and Inclusion. In terms of equality and diversity the relevant factors we must be sensitive to when teaching are disability, sexual orientation, gender, ethnicity and race, age, religious beliefs and economic and social needs of the students. The diverse backgrounds and experiences of individual students are what make teaching so exciting and challenging. The tutor needs to employ a number of strategies to promote inclusive learning to ensure that all the students are involved in the learning process.
Principles of developing positive relationships Task 1 1.1 Explain why effective communication is important in developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. It is important to have good communication skills within a teaching assistant role, parents and children need to be able to trust you and feel that you are approachable at all times. It is important that parents are involved with there child's education as the the more a parent is involved the better a child will perform. Open communication links with parents, teachers and school are essential as this means messages are sent home and received back. Useful ways to communicate is by talking to the parent, using a homework diary so messages can be sent home and messages can be passed back into school ensuring that the message is received by the right person.
As teachers we must be aware that children with bilingual skills come into our classrooms with cognitive and cultural advantages. (Crawford and Krashen, 2007). There are different phases of bilinguals and early bilinguals have been a subject of research to identify benefits and other important factors. The proven benefits of being bilingual Each child brings a unique set of skills and abilities to the classroom (Brown, 2007). Within those groups the diversity continues.
