Transition and development
transition video 2 Work in 2 groups : one identify natural and another more personal. You will be able to:
- 3.1 Identify the transitions experienced by most children and young people
- 3.2 Identify transitions that only some children and young people may experience e.g. bereavement
- 3.3 Describe with examples how transitions may affect children and young people’s behaviour and
- List life changes and transitions
that affect children and young people.
- Create a table to show the effects that each
of these transitions can have upon them. The more universal transitions that all children experience are:
- birth itself
- from milk to solids
- from crawling to walking
- from being fed to feeding ourselves
- from nappies to being trained
- becoming self aware
- able to be cared for by others
- going to nursery
- going to school
- developing new skills
Other transitions that some of the children in your care may experience are:
- a new baby
- parents divorcing/step parent/new partner
- a serious illness/accident/death in the family
- unexpected change of school
- moving house.
Your table should include both transitions that are normal to
most children, e.g. puberty,
and those that affect only some, e.g. serious illness.
You may use examples from reading, or from real life.
Link your examples to some of the types of development in task 1
