Language can also be a barrier; if you both do not speak the same language communication could become difficult. Distractions such as noise and things happening nearby can become a barrier especially for young children. Personal situations such as problems at home can create a barrier for both children and parents. 3.4 Identify sources of information and support of services to enable more effective communication. Sometimes help will be needed to help support and meet an individual’s needs.
This makes it very hard for them to express themselves either with words or through gestures, facial expressions, and touch. A child with autism may not speak at all. And if he/she does, it is often single words. A child with autism who is very sensitive may have great troubles with sounds, touches, smells, or sights that seem normal to others. This is called Sensory Processing Disorder.
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.
They may not understand the social rules which most of us pick up without thinking and may stand too close to another person in their actual space or start an inappropriate subject of conversation .They can be insensitive because they have not recognised how someone else is feeling, preferring to spend time alone rather than in the company of others. They may not seek comfort from other people and behave strangely or inappropriately, as it is not always easy for them to express their feelings, emotions or needs. Difficulties with social interaction can mean that people with autism find it hard to form friendships wanting to interact with other people and make friends, but don’t know how to do this. Difficulties with social imagination mean that people with autism find it hard to understand what other people's are thinking, feeling and their actions and cannot predict what will happen next, or what could happen next. They also cannot understand the concept of danger, e.g.
LD210: Introductory awareness of autistic spectrum conditions 1.1. Describe the types of difficulty that individuals with an autistic spectrum condition may have with language and other ways of communicating with others. 1.2. Identify problems that individuals with an autistic spectrum condition may have in social interaction and relationships. 1.3.
1.4 Some people with learning disabilities have a hard time communicating and understanding others. Some others are not able to speak properly or at all and might need to rely on aids like Makaton and PECS. Anger could also be
When people have any type of sensory loss, their mobility and communication ability will be greatly affected. For instance, a blind person may be able to understand when another person is talking to them directly but they would not be able to see the facial expressions of that person. This could affect their ability to understand the context of the conversation. They may also find it difficult to know when a person is talking to them or somebody else as they are unable to make eye contact. Likewise, a Deaf person would struggle to understand somebody that is talking too fast or that is not face to face with them.
However, a child or young person who has a disability may also have low self-esteem which can affect social, emotional and behavioural development. Their physical development may also be delayed. A new baby in the family can have both a positive and negative affect on a child or young person’s development. For example, a child or young person may not understand why they now have to share their parent’s attention. They may feel angry and isolated which can affect their social, emotional and behavioural development.
If a disabled person cannot access public facilities this acts as a barrier and takes away their right as a human being to have the same chances as everybody else. How a child or young person is accepted in a particular setting can have an impact on how they develop a negative acceptance because of having a disability could possibly lead to the child or young person feeling depressed and lacking in motivation, they may underachieve and have a reluctance to learn. The child or young person may develop a fear of failure this leading to lack of interest in trying new things and becoming isolated. 3.2 It is important to have a positive attitude towards a child/young person’s disability or specific requirements to enable them to have the same opportunities as everybody else and to enable them to have opportunities to make choices and develop their potential, become independent and make a positive contribution to society. In my setting we have a student who has communication difficulties and uses signalong to communicate, we have all received training in signalong to enable us
