“Unit 3.1: Communication and professional relationships with children, young people and adult.”

1.1

Effective communication skills are extremely important when you are building relationships with children, young people and adults because they help you as the practitioner to build good quality relationships with both the adults you are working with and the children and young people in your care.

And by showing a child quality interactions, it helps them to develop the well rounded language and communication skills that they will need in life.

As a practitioner having effective communication skills when dealing with other adults is very important, as you could be dealing with not only the parents of the children in your care, but you could also be dealing with other outside agencies that could possibly be involved in any of the children’s lives, be it social services, speech therapists, or if you have a child with a special needs you could also be dealing with other adults who are a part of that child’s care both inside and outside of school.
And being able to communicate effectively with these other adults is very important so that the child is receiving the correct care that they require from all agencies involved.

With my own son, for the first 2 weeks in reception class he would cry and cling onto my leg as we walked into class, but he had such a kind and gentle T.A who was his key worker for the first term, and she really helped to settle him in quickly and before we knew it I was barely getting a glance backwards as he went into school.

I feel as a teaching assistant that it is very important that you are very approachable to the children and that you get down on their level when you talk to them.
And maintaining eye contact with the children helps them to know...
