Social Interactions view is the LASS supports and develops children’s language through interactions with others. An example of this view is Bruner and he encouraged child directive language. An explanation of language development emphasises the role of social interaction between the developing child and linguistically knowledgeable adults. Although a new born baby cannot speak, they know that by crying they will get attention. And by watching parents and other adults
A recognised structured system of gestures, signs and symbols used to communicate. Communication – the interchange of thoughts, opinions or information by speech, writing or signs. It allows us to express ourselves, understand others and to be understood. In order for us to communicate effectively we need to remember to use various skills including listening and taking turns, a mutual language and the ability to express one self. Speech, language and communication needs – Encompasses a wide range of difficulties related to all aspects of communication in children and young people.
Whereas if the child or young person realises that this behaviour can enable them to get what they want or need, this behaviour can show that it is more likely to occur in the future. This maybe because children and young people are able to learn the effects their behaviour has by taking down in observations what others can do alongside things that the child or young person with problems can and can’t do. 1.2- Explain with examples, how speech, language and communication needs may affect behavioural, emotional and social development in children and young people: If a child can’t interact with their friends they will become frustrated and might get upset and angry. This will then make them not want to socialise with anybody. Children with special needs might have problems with behavioural, emotional and social difficulties because they might not be able to speak, communicate properly or their language might not be developed properly so they will become withdrawn, starting to feel isolated, being hyperactive, lack of concentration, immature social skills, showing challenging behaviour towards others with special needs or others
Skilled observation is important to correctly determine what is behind a child’s classroom behavior. Misinterpretation leads to difficulties for both teacher and child stemming from the teacher thinking that one cause has led to the child’s behavior, while the truth may be quite different (MacDonald, 2006). Children communicate through their bodies. Their physical actions reveal as much about them as the things they say. A major accomplishment during the early years is the development of social skills.
This development is strongly linked to communication and language development. 3. Communication – this area of development is about learning to communicate with other people and understanding their communications. Talking, reading and writing and also use of gestures are all aexamples of skills that most children learn. Communication and language development are linked to cognitive development because more sophisticated communication involves thinking about what others are trying to convey as well as thinking about what you are trying to express.
Social/Emotional Development in Toddlers… Age 1 • Temper Tantrums • Hard time sharing: “No”, “Mine”, start to understand they are individuals on their own. • Try to be independent • Can’t remember rules • Rapid mood shifts • Show increasing fears • Very Egocentric Age 1 ctd. • Parallel Play, or Independent Play • Routines are very comfortable • Ask for parents a lot • Increasingly more self-aware • Express new emotions (jealousy, affection, pride, etc.) but have problems controlling them: “what they want to happen should happen”. They are the director of their own lives, and adults are just the supporting role on the side.
Mistrust Mistrust is when people don’t share the same understanding. They are always suspicious and have no confidence in the person. People lack trust in some people because of their past or what they did to them in their past. Since I have define trust and mistrust for you I can now give you the first Psychosocial stage in the description of human development which is trust versus mistrust. Stage One From ages birth to one year old, children begin to learn the ability to trust people based upon the consistency of their parents or caretakers.
With children you need to get down to their level to speak to them and make eye contact. Use open ended questions such as Who, What, Why, Where and When. Give the child time to take in what you are asking of them and encourage them to tell you what you are wanting them to do. Understand their point of view and use age appropriate language. Make sure you use positive body language and show them respect by how and where you talk to them.
Boys are lead to believe they need to be stronger and more emotionless then girls. Children learn from their adult surroundings (Cervantes & Callanan, 1998 pg.96). "These findings suggest that children, early on, are learning to converse and think about emotions in gender-specific ways" (Cervantes & Callanan, 1998 pg.89), Boys and girls show emotional differences in problem solving, facial decoding, and emotion management. Children deal with social situations in concordance to the expectations society has set for them. These expectations allow them hide negative emotions and express positive emotions.
Children need to be able to communicate and express their feelings and the parents need to have an open line of communication with each other for their children, or they can expect emotional problems to arise such as depression or anger. While communication is a key point another issue that seems to consistently arise is the transportation either to or from school, sporting events, or the child’s functions. Although transportation may
