TDA 3.5 CS/RA adapting communication with adults

TDA 3.5.3 AC 3.2a 3.2b 3.2c Please note
This is a case study however if you have experience of any of these in your real practice then you need to include in this piece or evidence for those circumstances below that you can show real practice for describing:

‘What you actually did and also reflect on ‘how it went’ ‘what you might do differently in the future’ eg you may have actual experience adapting your communication for an adult with English as an additional language

You must make it clear which are case study examples and which are actual examples of your real practice

A/You have a family move into the area and they have recently arrived from Poland and speak very little English. The parents want to arrange a meeting with you to discuss their child’s first few weeks in the setting and how they have settled.

How can you support their understanding and interact with them during this meeting.

It is fully understandable that the family would want a meeting to ensure that their child is settling in to a new school.
When the meeting is arranged I would ask the parents if they knew anybody that could come with them whose could help me communicate more effectively with them. I would also ask them when would be convenient to them this I think would make them feel that I understood family life is busy and I wanted to make it as easy for them as possible. I would also ask them if they were happy just to see me or would also like the child’s class teacher to attend. For the case study I will state that the parents were happy with just to see me.
The meeting is to be held after school so it seems to make sense to hold it in the child’s classroom this would give the parents the opportunity to see the environment the child is in and also maybe look at any work displayed that their child or other children have done…this would be to show them that the school celebrates the children’s work which

    How I ensure that families are kept aware of what’s happening in their child’s daily/ or weekly life in my program is by having room displays such as photos and posters of the children interacting with each other and bulletin boards of their artwork all around my center. I would also post pictures of the children dancing and laughing around my class to show the parents the fun things we do. I would also post pictures of them working to show the children’s parents that my children are getting educated and that my children are learning. I am also able to provide the families with my weekly agenda of what the children and I will be working on. I can also exchange emails with the families to communicate via email, if they have any questions we can also exchange numbers. I can also provide daily reports of the child’s daily progress. I can also include and struggle the child has had during the day.…

    It is important to me that I get to know pupils and find out their capabilities and interests as soon as possible, this will help me to best support them through the curriculum in extra ways. As I didn’t work with them from the beginning of their St.Felix schooling I didn’t visit them at home to speak to their parents about their needs, but I did obtain the information that I needed from their class teachers when we went through the children’s files and targets to discuss the next steps. Not long into the school term the SENCO also set up a meeting with the parents and outside agencies, (in the cases of the children that I work with, this included social worker, speech and language therapist and visual impairment adviser). In some cases the child themselves would be included but with the children I work with it is felt that this is not suitable, but I do work with them previous to the meeting to discuss what they enjoy, find difficult, would like to change etc. In these meeting we discuss the children’s individual plans and targets for the year and how we can work together to get the best results and experience for the child. At St. Felix we feel that partnerships with parents are crucial to the process of working with pupils who have special educational needs.…
