A three year old child has been attending the early childhood education and care service for some weeks. The child’s family comes from Eastern Europe. The father speaks limited English, the mother none. The child speaks and understands little English. A major objective of the inclusion plan is to increase the child’s English vocabulary. Each day the child and an educator move around the facility together, naming objects so that the child can repeat and learn the English names. They seem to be making good progress. One week, the child misses two days at care and when they comes back, they are withdrawn and do not want to speak the English words they have been learning. You find out their grandmother, who came to Australia with the family, died suddenly over the weekend.
question. Briefly describe how you would approach and resolve this barrier to the strategies being implemented for the child?
