P2 - Outline the difficulties that may arise in communication and how these may be overcome. Communication is essential for every individual, there are many factors that can have an effect on a person's ability to communicate ; things such as emotional distress, dialect, health problems, language differences, environmental problems, cultural differences, disability, sensory deprivation and jargon, slang and acronyms. These factors are known as barriers to communication because they prevent people to communicate with each other There are many factors that can put a stop to communication with a child, for example Sensory deprivation and disability. This means visual and hearing can be harmed when communicating. Problems with sight or hearing can mean that signs can't be seen, leaflets can't be read or conversations can't be heard, also this tend to limit the individual's ability to communicate verbally and to interpret other people's non verbal communication. ...read more.

A few children would usually come up to me and say "its too noisy can you please tell the other children to be quiet", this therefore put me in a difficult position as children are all different and learn in different ways so therefore I could not tell them to stop 'learning'. In my opinion I think my work placement nursery should have had two separate rooms as this would resolve this problem.
