Having effective communication has a positive outcome in many different ways. One of which is trust; once trust is built with a student many other things fall into place. Building trust through positive communication allows students to feel they are able to discuss different concerns they may have, which they feel can only be discussed with those they can trust to either help them, show understanding and support or simply be there as a shoulder to cry on in order for them to get things of their chest. These issues can be at home, school or personal issues. Another major reason why trust is so important is that they trust you to help them when in crisis or during difficulty. Therefore once trust is built a much stronger bond and relationship is formed.
Another outcome caused through positive communication is; enables negotiation. This is particularly important with students in order to try and stop them hitting crisis. A lot of students hit crisis due to change (in particular those with autism) but unfortunately sometimes these changes are unavoidable, therefore negotiation can be put into place in order to stop difficulty arising. An example of this is, a particular student in which I work with has the higher spectrum of autism, and needs her Argos book (or any catalogue) also known as her toys, to flick through when either starting to struggle or after the completion of work. However this student will ask for her toys when the time isn’t always appropriate. So a negotiation that will be made with her is ‘work first then toys’ of which this negotiation works for both student and staff, as she is allowed to have her toys (which is what she wants) but once she has completed her work (which is what the staff require). This is why negotiation is so important because it creates a scenario that may not have worked in the negotiation may not
