It is very important when communicating with children and young person, you should pay great attention to their stage of development. Children develop and learn at different pace and unique ways and may require different attention and support according to their needs. Always take into consideration their needs and age which will vary. It is also important to adapt your behaviour to the age, needs and abilities of all individual pupils’. Always making eye contact, allowing them to explain and listen to them about what is being said.
Within a class room you will have pupils on different levels of ability, with all children requiring a different method of support. Some will be able to work alone independently following initial instruction, while others will be given one to one to support their needs.
