the questions sound simular to what I might have done in my first year , am in 2nd year of Level 3 childcare and education CACHE Course, what course are you doing clare?
not too sure but for qu 1) i would put legislation, disability, people's perceptions, etc as causes. Effects would be low self esteem, low confidence, quietness, development delay, not being given the same opportunities, equal opps etc
2) legislation in settings - welfare of child paramount, health and safety, equal opps, affects planning, staff ratios, needing more staff etc to support children, child protection, more training needed, etc etc
i wish i had this many ideas about the work I am supposed to do got so much to do and coming up
.. ill !, feeling rough, snow around, and my obsession with fb and stuff bad.
