Building trust with parents or carers will result in them knowing that the nursery is a very good place for their child as it offers a great amount of help and support, which is especially important for new parents or carers. Other professionals It is also important to partner with other professionals as they will offer the support and services, where needed, to improve the overall development of the child. For example, a speech and language therapist may assist a child with communication difficulties. Another example would be a play therapist to diagnose, prevent or resolve a child with psychosocial challenges. Multi-disciplinary teams It is very important that everyone in a multi disciplinary team work in partnership.
Because children, young people and families needs can be very different, the composition of a multi-agency team will differ from case to case. It is important each practitioner brings with them their own specialist skills, expertise and insight so that the child, young person and family gets the best support possible. Benefits Multi-agency working provides benefits for children, young people and families because they receive tailor-made support in the most efficient way. The benefits of this include * early identification and intervention * easier or quicker access to services or expertise * improved achievement in education and better engagement in education * better support for parents * children, young people
there are several generic principles that underpin building a strong relationship with children, young people and adults: Effective communication - one of the most important aspects of building a relationship is finding a way to communicate effectively. If we think our relationship with the child, young person or adult isn’t as good as it could be we should adapt our style. It might be we need to show more facial expressions, speak more simply or praise more. Remaining positive and acknowledging a child in particular shows we enjoy being with them and in turn makes them more comfortable in your company. Showing respect - showing
Also parents had to give a description of the capability of that child and if they did know then the professionals were unable to help. In my opinion this is a much better way of working together as all families can be helped in the best way. The “Department of Education” also outlines that the “Multi-agency working provides benefits for children, young people and families because they receive tailor-made support in the most efficient way”. Department of education (Accessed 20.12.12) they go one to say about the ways in which this co-operation is best fitted in this work ethic. One key example is early intervention; they are able to intervene with a situation almost immediately depending if the evidence gathered and shared to other professionals shows the Childs safety is being compromised.
Infant and Toddler Learning Development Sheila Bagwell Infant and Toddler Learning & Development/ECE345 Merrian Gagnon Throughout their day-to-day experiences with infants and toddlers, caregivers will find that there are developmental strands that tie the elements together, much like a ribbon. The strands come together to create a picture of excellent care for infants and toddlers. The strands do not represent lessons or activities in the traditional sense. Rather, the strands provide a framework that supports optimal developmental in all areas. The strands are: • To learn about themselves - Self Concept Development • To learn about their feelings - Emotional Development • To learn about other people - Social Development • To learn to communicate - Language Development • To learn to move and do - Physical Development • To learn to think - Cognitive Development The quality of early experiences is shaped by the individuals with whom infants and toddlers spend their time and by the environments where they spend their time.
Explain working in partnership with others is important for children and young people. Multi-agencies are a number of people from different professions working together to provide a way of working to support children, young people and families. Working in partnership with others is important for children and young people because it can open more doors to help a child or young person for example children with speech and language or health issues will need frequent support or therapy from other professions such as speech and language therapist or health care professionals. It is important that childcare workers and other professions work together to support a child or young person 's needs. One example of a multi-agency is sure start, which is a government programme that aims to ensure every child has the best start in life.
This approach is also a very important part of the government framework of Every Child Matters which states that we should be working together to achieve the best possible outcomes for children in our care. The Early years foundation stage, states that different professionals working together will help to improve outcomes for children both in their learning and development. So by sharing records or observations of a child by a professional such as a speech or language therapist may contribute to further assessment. Inclusion is an important
Working together for the benefit of children and young people (Linked to unit CU1535 - Promote children’s welfare and well being in the early years) Using the chart provided list agencies you may work with, describe their function and give an example, include how and why referral would be made and how working in partnership delivers better outcomes for children and young people Document attached at the end of this 1.4 Explain common barriers to integrated working and multi-agency working and how these can be overcome Although a person is trained for a particular role, it may be challenging for them to be managed by someone who docent possess the same skills as them. they may have a different area of expertise and could not be used to sharing the information that they have with other people. Each profession will have its own ‘specific’ language and whilst this will not pose a problem when they are communicating with someone from the same profession, but may well confuse someone from a different sector. To enable professionals to work together successfully then they need to discuss matters before the partnership fully takes effect. Guidelines should be drawn up to outline what is expected of each department, how reports should be written and discuss the best way to work as part of a multi agency team.
For such multidisciplinary teams to work effectively with commonly shared philosophy, values and ethos must be firmly established (Pugh 2006:147). The EYFS framework makes it clear that multi-agency working is imperative to daily practice. Working alongside professionals allows a deeper understanding of children providing them with better learning and care opportunities; this is particularly important for children with special educational needs. It is only through functioning together those working with children can provide a coherent service that generally meets the child’s and family needs (Effective practice: Multi-agency Working 2007). However for services to interlink with each other good relationships are key to success which generally takes time and resources to set up.
This is so the practitioner can act on the advice and put it onto the planning. This advice can have more experience in different aspects of the child’s life. This then helps with the care and learning needs of all children as if the child has a disability which affects their learning. The teacher will have to get another professional in that knows what they are doing to help care for the child and help with the child’s learning. This means that the child will be getting a full learning experience and understand the lesson because it is easier for them.
