This means that they may have an impairment of cognitive ability and physical growth so they will need extra support in daily activities. They also have different facial characteristics. Cerebral palsy is a non-progressive non-contagious disability which is also developed at birth due to the brain. This affects motor conditions that cause physical disability in human development, resulting limits in movement and posture Learning difficulties are also a factor that influences a child’s development. Children with learning difficulties will need extra support with certain areas of development and may develop a low self-esteem because they get annoyed with themselves for not being able to do something, such as a simple numeracy problem, or read a book.
Introduction: In this assignment i will be explaining my own views and attitude againt diversity, and how it could impact on work with young children and young people. Assessment Criteria 2.3 In my own opinion everyone has different kinds of opinions and values than to others. When you work with children from a young age. You start to realize that it's not always needed for you to be aware of them. So say if you act out on these attitudes, it could have a bad effect on the children your working with and other children they might know, and you would not want them to copy your own actions in a result.
This side of the nature-nurture debate suggests that we are a certain way because of the way we were bought up and our life experiences. Biological programming - this comes down to your genes. Biological programming suggests that you will have similar medical conditions to your parents supporting the idea of natural selection and genetics. Maturation theory - this theory sees child development as being controlled by evolution and that genetically there is a series of events that will occur automatically. It is believed the development has a biological process and this can be predicted over time.
Running Head: NATURE VS. NURTURE-THE GREAT DEBATE 1 Nature vs. Nurture: The Great Debate Jeffery Gray, RN Western Governors University September 2014 NATURE VS. NURTURE: THE GREATE DEBATE 2 Abstract Describe the basic elements of the nature-nurture controversy. There are two different rationales for the origin, cause, or source of human behavior. Researchers and Scientists alike suggest that behavior is either the result of nature or nurture. Nature suggests that human behavior is the result of a genetic disposition, in other words, an individual’s behavior exists at birth, it is innate, they are born with the behavior inside of them. However, nurture suggests that an individual’s behavior is learned, it is the result or by-product of the environment in which the individual was reared or existed.
Outline and evaluate the learning theory of attachment (12marks) According to the learning theory all behaviour is learnt rather than inborn, as infants learn to be attached to their primary caregiver through classical conditioning and operant conditioning. Before attachment is learnt the child gains pleasure through being fed in 3 stages, this is known as the process of classical conditioning. The first stage is called before conditioning were in which the food to this process is known as the unconditioned stimuli and the pleasure is the unconditioned response. The second stage is when the child is being fed, the child relates the person providing the food, in most cases the primary caregiver, to the food. The primary caregiver in the second stage, during conditioning, is known as the unconditioned response which becomes associated with the food, still known as the unconditioned stimuli.
His theory is that most physical skills cannot be taught but is programmed in our genetics, which means we will learn different physical skills when our body is ready to. In our setting, we support this by encouraging children but not forcing them to develop a physical skill. We provide a soft, cushioned area so that children can develop themselves physically without risk of hurting themselves. The theorist who theory is language development is B.F. Skinner. His theory is that children use cognitive behavior when understanding and giving communication.
Nature Vs Nurture Essay The debate between nature versus nurture has been argued for centuries. Some scientists think that people behave as they do according to genetic tendency or even animal instincts. This is the nature theory of human behavior. The Nature Theory believes that traits such as intelligence, personality, aggression, and sexual orientation are encoded in DNA, much like eye and hair color. While other scientists believe that, people think and behave in certain ways because they are taught to do so.
The parents need to realize that a disability is not a death sentence. As stated above, many times a disabled child has just as much an impact on a family as child prodigy and a family may also come to love this child as deeply as they would if they were a “normal” child. Genetic counselors should only be held legally responsible for a regretted decision if the parents felt like they were being persuaded into that decision. Genetic counselors should only give the parents information, both negative and positive, about the disability and nothing more. The counselors should not refer the couple to a hospital that could possibly terminate the fetus nor should they refer them to a facility that will care for the disabled fetus when he/she is born.
When communicating with children or adults I believe it is very important that you understand what each individual wants to say and what they are feeling. I would do this by observing carefully a variety of reactions. There are some adults or children that are confident enough to express themselves verbally; however some individuals find it hard to express their selves verbally. In order for me to understand how an individual is feeling or trying to tell me something I will use my observation skills to interpret what they are trying to say. For example I would look at their Body language: It will show me the parent’s emotions and attitude before I would approach them.
Running head: NATURE VS NURTURE: TWO STUDIES Nature vs Nurture: Two Studies Lesli A. Hill Western Governors University Nature vs Nurture: Two Studies Almost since the beginning of time, humans have tried to figure out why we are the way we are. Are our traits the result of our genetics, or our living situation? This question is the crux of the raging debate called “nature versus nurture.” The nature vs. nurture debate is all about determining whether we are shaped more by heredity or environment, and it has been applied to everything from intelligence to disease processes to sexual orientation. Proponents of the nature theory believe that we are destined have certain qualities because they are pre-programmed into our DNA, while supporters of the nurture theory believe that we learn our
