CHCECE006 – Support behaviour of children and young people
Select two (2) students for this task:
Provide a profile for each student. Try not to include labels or categories of their disability. Each profile should be a paragraph in length and include as much detail as possible.
Notes to consider :
Do not forget that strengths and interests should also be included.
Developing a student profile helps to provide a deeper understanding of an individual's unique interests, styles and abilities. By gathering information from a variety of sources, teachers and school-based teams are in a better position to make educational decisions that will enhance the student's development.
Means of gathering data include: observations of student performance; assessment of student products, portfolios, journals and learning logs; informal and formal classroom testing; learning style inventories; interest inventories; rating scales of student characteristics; previous report cards; information from parents; and psycho-educational testing.
Five areas to consider are the student's:
Academic achievement tells us what the student can do in various areas of the curriculum. Watching a student during learning activities, testing reading, spelling and maths levels are all ways of gathering information about the students academic level.
Learning styles and strengths refer to the way a student approaches learning. The concept of learning styles is approached by different authors from different perspectives.
One example of Learning styles:
The Seven Learning Styles
· Visual(spatial):You prefer using pictures, images, and spatial understanding.
· Aural (auditory-musical): You prefer using sound and music.
· Verbal (linguistic): You prefer using words, both in speech and writing.
· Logical (mathematical): You prefer using logic, reasoning and systems.
· Social (interpersonal): You prefer to learn in groups or with other people.
· Solitary (intrapersonal): You prefer to work alone and use self-study.
Interests of the students can provide a basis for curriculum development, extension exercises and engaging reluctant learners in lessons.
Special abilities refers to the student's talents that may or may not be exhibited through the school's curriculum. The student may have a special ability in taking mechanical objects apart and putting them back together or may be an accomplished pianist, figure skater or hockey player. Special abilities can often be identified through knowledge of the student's hobbies, extracurricular activities and outside interests.
Vision and goals for the future are the student's personal values and hopes for the future. This includes the student's desired lifestyle, possible careers and community interests set in the context of a long term vision. Creating a vision or desired future provides the student with a focus for personal planning.
