How effective communication supports all areas of development.

Extracts from this document...


How effective communication supports all areas of development. The setting can effectively support the child through good communication. Good communication is central to working with children, young people, their families and carers. It involves listening, questioning, understanding and responding to what is being communicated by children, young people and those caring for them. Communication is not just about the words you use, but also your manner of speaking, body language and, above all, the effectiveness with which you listen. To communicate effectively it is important to take account of culture and context, for example where English is an additional language. It is important to consult with the child and consider their opinions and perspectives from the outset. A key part of effective communication and engagement is trust, both between the workforce, children, young people and their carers, and between and within different sectors of the workforce itself. ...read more.

If the parent and practitioner don't get along then the parent might take the child away. But there are more important issues the parent might need to inform the practitioner of something important that happened in the family that might affect the child's work or even the practitioner spots something of concern e.g. the child can't see near objects - hence they will need to go get their eyes checked. The parent and practitioner would have to discuss the child diet e.g. no pork for Jewish people. They should be well informed of the things related to the child in school and outside school on both sides of the equation. The parent would like to know how their child is progressing and how to help them develop better skills at home and ask the teachers for tips. The parents may want to come on trips and help out.
