‘Emily is a three year old with a diagnosis of cerebral palsy. She is interested in her environment and tries hard to listen. She enjoys adult attention. She has limited mobility but can walk short distance with adult assistance. She finds it physically difficult to use some toys and demonstrate what she knows.
If you were working with Emily at home how might you encourage her and what type of activities might you do to assess her basic skills and to develop them further.

I don't want to sound harsh but if you need to ask then it demonstrates that you possibly don't have the expereince needed to do this job.
If I was Emily's mum I would want to know that the outreach worker had the necessary skills and experience to help her and me.

l do not think you understood what needs to be done.
RE: Cerebral palsy - 06-04-12 17:21
Enlighten me then.
I assumed that you are asking for advice for an upcoming interview you have. Is this not the case?
I still think that if you need help with this question then you are not the right person for the job.

Who ever you are you do not have any right to be abusive on this forum, and l am not asking you to share your opinion if you dont want to so l dont want you to post again to this question.
RE: Cerebral palsy - 07-04-12 11:47
I am not being abusive and I have every right to post on a public forum. Especially when you have asked for people's opinions.
I gave you my opinion, which is as valid as anyone else's. Sorry if you don't like it but sometimes the truth hurts.
RE: Cerebral palsy - 07-04-12 13:42
Who ever you are l think you need help with your manners.
RE: Cerebral palsy - 07-04-12 14:12
shes prob on a level 3 its similar to questions i ask of my learners, but then i expect them to do the research themselves. Nutbrown in right
RE: Cerebral palsy - 07-04-12 14:20
Thanks for your opinion, l have already done my research just needed few more ideas.

Dandy, if you had said you were a student and needed help with your course work I would ahve been only too pleased to help you. I have helped lots of students on here over the years- I am a student myself, nearly at the end of a BA Hons degree in early childhood, so I know how usefull it is to have some input from others.
However, the way you posted the question, incidently, half of which has now disappeared from your original post, it sounded as if you were after information to help you with an interview for outreach worker. I am passionate that children with additional needs have the best support available and felt that you sounded unsure of the subject and wondered why you were posting on a forum for advice.
Also, multiple threads on the same subject is a bit overkill. If you want help from this forum I suggest you are more open with your requests and are not rude to its members.
RE: Cerebral palsy - 07-04-12 16:24
I only came to this forum to recieve advice not to be judged, it seem other people are taking advantage of this to criticised me. We all needed support one way or the other and just to say l have not been rude to anybody, l am only trying to defend myself.

Never mind Dandy, we all get the wrong end of the stick and forget we all need help sometimes. Every authority has different tools to measure sen children. Ours is called PLANS if you can't get hold of anything let me have your email address and next week i.ll scan and send you it to look at. An iep is then written looking at where the main dips in development. Hope that helps and if not come back and i'll try again. We don't all judge.

Thanks for your advise and support, it really helps.
