Support behaviour of children and young people

Post by kaykay1234 » Thu Aug 20, 2020 10:09 pm

Hi, Can someone please tell me if this is correct as I'm unsure!

Thank you :thumbup:

Why is it necessary to learn to recognise the normal physical, behavioural, cognitive and emotional cues of children and young people? (75–100 words

It's necessary to learn to recognise the normal physical, behavioural, cognitive and emotional cues of children and young people as each child and young person is different and have different ways of expressing their cues.

It's important to recognise the physical cues of children as the child may be trying to get the educators attention about how they feel or what they need. Example - A children or young person keeps sucking their thumb, pulling their ear and rubbing their eyes. This physical cue indicates the child is tired.

When working with a child that has a behavioural management plan implemented and behavioural issues sometimes it may be found that the child/young person needs additional support and guidance to assist the child then the original plan intended. It's important to recognise and cater to these additional needs as ........

An example of an additional need may be related to - The child's language (English in the second language spoken at home) This may then make the child act up and show inappropriate behaviour

It's important to recognise children and young peoples emotional cues as it indicates the emotion of the child. Example - A child is experiencing disgust the child will use their facial emotions to frown, raise brows or raise their upper lip.

Yes you're on the right track with your response... basically so you can understand the child's development cues, if the are developing on track as per their age, if they are ahead of their development or if they are behind in their development what you can do to assist the child etc.
