Sometimes this belief is unrealistic and you may need to reassure them and persuade them to further effort. They are not aware at the early stage of the idea that people may have different abilities and they tend not to distinguish between the effects of effort and ability. Where a child does not think well of him- or herself you need to praise as much as you can and encourage the child to have a go at things, reassuring him or her if the result is not as good as s/he would like. 1 Johnny was the only child of parents who had had to make their own way from a rather disadvantaged background.

Make it clear that you believe in the child’s ability and will support him or her. Young children start by exploring the environment and discovering the world around. They gradually become more social but still tend to see the world as revolving around themselves. In adapting to any environment and to new ideas children take in new information and try to relate it to what they already know. This may mean making adjustments to previously held ideas. By the time they are 7 years old they begin to be able to see from another’s point of view, but their thinking is still tied to action.

They need to develop social competence and skills such as the ability to form and maintain satisfying relationships, through readiness to cooperate, negotiate, take turns and share with others, as well as other communication and social skills. It is important that both you and the teacher convey the idea that you have high expectations of children. It is very easy to convey the opposite without realising it, particularly when dealing with children with SEN. A comment like ‘That’s very good, for you’ or the equivalent conveys the idea that you didn’t expect much.
