There are many factors that can affect a child’s stage of development for example, play opportunities, lack of social interaction, special needs, hearing difficulties, or an illness.When you communicate with children and young people you need to be aware of their stage of development according to their needs and time. You need to have instruction from other professionals so you can focus on those areas that need attention. When you are trying to explain something to the whole class most of the children would probably pick it up straight away but if you have a child who is behind on their development you would need to take them aside and explain in a easier way in which they will understand, to make it possible for the child to develop into a more advanced and desirable stage. It is important to adapt things this way so we won’t fail them as an individual.
Children in Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 are very young and their communication and language skills is still developing. So, when you are talking to them you need to get down to their level, reminding them why is neccessary to listen to others and taking turns to speak. You need to speak clearly, making sure they understood after you spoken to them and then, asking them to repeat back to you. You need to be ready because children this age find it hard to control times of change, are unable to concentrate for long periods of time and they tire quickly. A lot of children in Key Stage 2 start to mature when communicating but you may still need to remind some of them about waiting for their turn to speak. Although this may be part of their personality it may also be due to immaturity. When they reach Key Stage 3 and 4 the children will be able to understand how we communicate with one another and be more familiar with using formal and informal language. They will frequently communicate themselves with a high number of technology such as texts and emails. As the children become more aware of speaking in front of others and easily embarrased allow them to have a bit more time to do this in groups, so that they can obtain their confidence and be encouraged to speak out. Children who speak English as an extra language take longer to develop their vocabulary and their speech may vary. Learning more than one language has to be managed in a delicate way in order that the children’s identities are respected.
