A learning disability affects the way a person learns new things in any areas of life. It affects the way they understand information and how they communicate. A learning disability means that it is harder for a child to learn, understand and communicate than it is for other children. A learning disability can be mild, moderate or severe. Some people with a mild learning disability can talk easily and look after themselves, but take a little longer than usual to learn new skills.
Recognising and Responding to concerns about Child Development Any concerns that staff may have about the development of children and young people should be reported. Recognising concern, allows staff /carers to intervene and help the child, and inform the parents of the concerns and possible solution for the problem. The quicker the issue is dealt with the better this is for the child’s development. Whereas if a problem is left unresolved or delayed, the more damaging this could be for the child’s development. Difficulty with reading and writing If a child is having problems with reading and writing this could cause concern.
For a younger person it may be harder to accept the fact that they will need help with things such as personal care etc. If a person with learning difficulties is diagnosed with dementia there will have to extra support and services made available as this will change their needs even more. There are often delays in diagnosing dementia in a person with learning difficulties as the symptoms are often disguised by the original condition. It does not matter what ethnic
Her study was a phonic-based approach. According to Broadley and MacDonald (1993, cited in Eggie, 2011) as individuals with DS are poor at sequential processing, multisensory instruction is an appropriate method to teach phonics to children with DS through small teaching steps. The author of this study argued that students with intellectual disabilities can learn and its educators' crucial role in the process of teaching to help these individuals to be independent learners. Researcher has conducted this study because she thought that the standards in children with disabilities should be higher than what we expect now. Two methods of data collection were used in this study.
While teaching the young learners help them learn through all the five senses. Adults learn better through audio and visual inputs. The attention span for a young learner being short the inputs should be varied with graded activities. Adults on the other hand can focus on a topic for a longer period of time. Young learners find it difficult to understand abstract concepts, the content for them should be relevant and something they can relate to.
I feel that remarriage and remarried families is a touchy subject. When children are involved in these situations it makes it even more difficult. I have a few friends that have step parents and it can cause problems even at an adult age. In my experience it is usually easier with smaller children that can grow up around the step parent. Remarriage with older children can go both ways, depending on the age they may see the step parent as another authoritative figure while other children may not really have an opinion.
It shows respect for their culture, language and religion, enables the individual to feel valued and also prevents isolation as it can help maintain or create relationships with others within a social care environment. 1.2 Compare the experience of dementia for an individual who has acquired it as an older person with the experience of an individual who has acquired it as a younger person. Although being diagnosed with dementia at any point in someones life proves difficult to deal with, younger people may feel more affected as they may find it more difficult to come to terms with. An older person diagnosed with dementia will have different needs to a younger person that has been diagnosed. Dementia is most commonly associated with the elderly, therefore a younger person may find it more difficult to access help and advice as it is less common in younger people.
Many students, who aren’t from the states, have parents who have brought them here to better themselves and they must be efficient in English in order to communicate successfully here. Variation in dialect may affect a student in reading because of the language rules that were taught to them many years ago in their native language. The way that a letter or a word may be pronounced in their native can be pronounced totally differently in the English language. Students may tend to get annoyed or aggravated by the change which may hinder their ability to learn the new language. Teachers can promote dialect diversity by having students list different names for an item used by many cultures.
Middle-class mothers are more likely to have more of an interest in their child’s intellectual development. Bernstein identified two forms of speech pattern, the restricted code and elaborated code. According to Bernstein, most middle-class children have been socialised into both the restricted code and the elaborated code, working-class pupils are placed at a distinct disadvantage. They are less likely to understand what teachers say and are more likely to be misunderstood and criticised for what they themselves say. Bernstein’s early work comes close with being a ‘cultural deficit’ model.
"Emotions pose an interesting problem for young language learners because they refer, in part, to unobservable internal feeling states"(Cervantes & Callanan, 1998 pg.88). The ability to show emotions starts to some extent with young babies. Children's emotions begin to develop more as they get older. Children learn from our society the standards which have been set regarding the types of emotions which are suitable for each gender (Cervantes & Callanan, 1998 pg.89). Boys are lead to believe they need to be stronger and more emotionless then girls.
