Unit One: Child and Young Person’s Development

By the end of this unit you will understand child and young person development. This learning outcome will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies. In this unit you will explore the expected pattern of children and young people’s development from birth to 19 years and how the different areas of development can affect one another.

Unit Two: Key Theories Relating to Behaviour

Within this unit you will learn:

  • To explain why children behave in a particular way by looking at key theories.
  • To understand the causes of challenging behaviour.
  • To look at the structure of the brain.
  • To look at the way the brain and its development has an impact on behaviour.

  • Outline the main diagnostic sub-groups (Asperger’s, Autism, PDD-NOS) within the autism spectrum family of conditions

Unit Five: Working With Children and Young People With Speech, Language, and Communication Needs

By the end of this unit you will understand how to support positive practice with children and young people with speech, language and communication needs. This unit will be divided into a set of activities to guide your studies. In this unit you will research how practitioners can and should work with children and young people at the centre of their practice, basing their work on the strengths of the children and young people rather than focussing on their difficulties. You will explore the way in which behaviour, social and emotional difficulties are linked with speech, language and communication development and research effective ways to support the speech, language and communication development of children and young people with behaviour, emotional and social difficulties.

The course has been endorsed under the ABC Awards and Certa Awards Quality Licence Scheme. This means that learndirect has undergone an external quality check to ensure that the organisation and the courses it offers, meet defined quality criteria.
