Ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds when we asses a child we must take account of their ethnic, cultural and linguistic back ground as these can play important roles in how the children acts and the understanding of the words being used. Disability or specific requirements need to be taken in account when carrying out any assessment /observation or a child can be underestimated and the observation will be unreliable. Reliability of information no one can get an accurate picture of development if the information is not accurate this can harm the child’s development and the underestimating of their potential. With observation we must understand the limitations of each type of observation method. Avoiding bias when observing children we must remain completely objective also having 2 people observing the child at the same time can produce a more accurate account.
It is important not to upset the child and cause the unnecessary disturbance. • Ethnic, linguistic and cultural backgrounds When I asses a child I must always take into account their ethnic, cultural and linguistic backgrounds as they can play the important role in how the children acts and react in particularly situations. Their understanding of the words that are used can cause different reactions. Children can have different attitudes towards various things due to their ethnical, cultural, or linguistic background. Sometimes the behavioural skills and interests that children show are dependent on their upbringing and backgrounds, since our personalities and the way we behave are deeply rooted in culture and sub-culture.
Assessment task – CYP 3.4 Support children and young people’s health and safety Important: Within the evidence for the tasks below where relevant you also need to show examples of how you embed the knowledge into your own /the settings practice. Please remember you must show your own knowledge and practice do not copy what is in your research materials. Plagiarism is taken seriously. Providing a safe environment for children and young people requires knowledge of understanding of hazards and an ability to assess and manage risk. Task 1 links to learning outcome 1, assessment criteria 1.1, 1.2, 1.3 and 1.4.
Jean Piaget argued that when children of a certain age watch water being poured from a short, wide container into a tall, thin container, they think that the amount of water has changed. Discuss with reference to research evidence. In every area of psychology there are numerous different perspectives each giving their own viewpoint on the subject matter. The area of child development is no different. Over the years many different theorists have done vast amounts of research on children in an attempt to discover things such as how they develop or what influences their development.
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.
There are systems of basic human development that influences that of a child's development. Ecological systems mainly focus on the individual and delicate relationship that a person has with their environment. A child's ability develop intellectual, emotional, and cognitive concepts is an impact from what is learned from their environment. Through this paper the bioecological model of human development, developed by Urie Bronfenbrenner will help guide through the fundamental journey that is social interaction and environment. With the use of the four systems: Microsystems, mesosystems, exosystems, and macrosystems, which include standards and rules that influence a child’s development Character building heading into becoming an adult is based on child development.
We do this according to their developmental stage. * Understanding the signs of abuse and being aware of what appropriate procedures to take if abuse is suspected. * Carrying out risk assessments to avoid hazards which could harm children There are times when we work with children that an individual’s rights conflict which another principle. A balanced approach has to be taken in deciding the greater priority in certain circumstances. All children have rights and also the parents have rights.
The theories (behaviorism, social learning, constructivism and social constructivism) will then be compared and contrasted to see what extent they recognise a role for social experiences in the development of a child. The theory of behaviorism is based on the understanding that human being is a trainable being and can be trained to behave in any particular way. Behaviourism believes that through certain methods of training and discipline, not only a person’s behaviour pattern can be changed but even their reflexes can be trained to respond in certain way to certain stimuli. Behaviourists rejected the child development theories which focused on ‘mental events’ as the cause of child development, and focused their attention on understanding how the behaviour of a child is influenced by his environment. Behaviourists considered any relatively permanent change in behavior that was caused by environmental events as ‘learning’ (Oates, Sheehy and Wood, 2005).
By a practitioner following the setting practices and procedures they should also be meeting the external standards as well.So to summarise the standards that influence the roles are; codes of practise, regulations, National occupational standards, Minimum standards of regulatory bodies (e.g. Ofsted ), Best practise standards ( often called benchmarks ). | 3. Describe ways to ensure that personal attitudes or beliefs do not obstruct the quality of work. Everyone has they own beliefs and personal attitudes, but as a practitioner it is best for the children and setting if you follow the regulations set by the setting and also the parents wishes because you could influence a child down a path which isn’t conductive to their wellbeing.
Erickson, Piaget & Bandura Faith Daniel Ashford University Childhood & Adolescent Development August 26, 2013 Instructor Milan Hollister Development theories provide guidelines for the progression, development and learning of the human throughout life. Theories are where many researchers start their basis that guides them through new observations using fresh opinions to improve or disprove their research. For example children were regarded as empty vessels until theorists developed theories that demanded that society look at them as individuals with their own way of developing and learning. (Morrison, There are a variety of child development theories that have been researched, tested and retested. In this paper three developmental theories Erickson’s psychosocial, Piaget’s cognitive and Bandura’s social-cognitive will be summarized, looked at in relation to a mental illness, and a review of three similarities and differences that help a child reach his/her full potential.
