charged by the law for not following the correct procedures if this child was in fact being abused. A child that is being abused or neglected will not come and open up to a teacher or adult unless they feel comfortable, because they are scared of how that teacher or adult will react and respond to what the child has to say. That is why body language and facial expressions are very important when listening to what a child has to say. A teacher’s responsibility is big, and has an amazing impact on what happens in a child’s life outside of their home and in school , as well as during sport. Therefore a teacher is officially the one responsible to know what the signs are, and the ways and means to notice the signs and report child abuse or neglect. (e)What do we use assessment results for in an ECD Centre: As a teacher, I am often asked why we even bother to assess children of a very early age. Parents ask what could I possibly be assessing at this young age? I then tell them it’s not just about assessing the children, but also a way in which I can personally learn and grow as a teacher. Assessments in Early Childhoo d Development not only evaluate a child’s progress and growth, but they also evaluate my own teaching methods and style of teaching. When it comes to assessing children, it is a continual process of trying to see and understand each child’s strengths and w eaknesses, and how they are developing and growing. I am also able to see which children have learning disabilities or difficulties with certain tasks, and I then need to find a way to adapt my teaching methods with these particular children. I am also able to identify problem areas which can be brought to the attention of parents while the children are still young. Assessments also help me with my own planning of appropriate activities for the children. I am able to identify if my methods are working or not, and then adjust them accordingly.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
