task 1: skill development
How can a disability support worker encourage and provide opportunities for incidental learning?
The disability support workers should encourage the person with disabilities to be involved in most activities and offer the information, skills, and support needed. They can also interpret and follow skill development strategies that have been identifying in the individual plan. The disability support worker can also help disabled people to recognize their strengths and goals for the ongoing development of skills. They can also provide support to mobilize strengths and encourage the ongoing development and application of personal development skills.
2.List five (5) areas where you can support skill development within an individual’s life. (Consider aspects of daily living and community integration.)
The areas to provide support skills development within an individual’s life to go about day to day life such as:
making plans and attending medical visits
management of medications
integration of supports like cleaning, washing, or eating
Menu planning, shopping, and cooking
Support with personal care like showering or dressing
However, there is other life skill which can be developed within an individual’s life which includes:
Self-awareness-they includes describing or understanding oneself being empathetic for another person as if their experiences were happening to themselves.
Decision-making is a life skill that is essential and requires a level of confidence and making decisions and avoiding second-guessing. Also, it is creative thinking, focus, prioritization, and time management.
Ability to accept constructive criticism- One should receive feedback and apply it to do work thoughtfully.
Technology skills- Today, everyone should know how to use necessary technology and be comfortable using smartphones, standard computer programs, and the internet.
Advocacy- Safeguarding one’s rights and needs, knowledgeable about disability services and resources nationally.
From your research, identify three physical or environmental barriers to skill development. Discuss how they may be overcome? (We have covered this in the workplace assessment.)
The physical barriers usually force disabled people into hygienic and dangerous practices. Some of the physical or environmental barriers to skill development include the absence of a weight scale that accommodates wheelchairs or others with difficulties of stepping up. They also include uneven or steep paths on muddy grounds and long distances to walk to reach water sources. They can also include infrastructural barriers like slippery, created by poor, non-inclusive design and construction. Some of these physical barriers can be overcome by ensuring appropriate inclusive designs that recognize the significance of accessibility. The physical barriers can also be reduced by internal modification and adoptions like accessible lifts and a fair number of disability parking places.
4. Describe the purpose of fading and explain the benefits for the person learning the new skill.
Fading is an applied behaviors analysis strategy(aba) that is usually paired with prompts, another ABA strategy. It is reducing the level of assistance needed to complete an activity teaching a new skill. The main objective is for the student is be involved with the skill independently. The purpose of fading is to ensure that the individual does not become too independent on a specific prompt when learning a new behavior or skill. The person learning the new skill befits can produce correct responses and reduce errors when the only natural stimulus is provided.
task 2: person-centered planning (PCP)
In your role as a support worker, how would you ensure that a person has maximum input, control, and involvement in the development of their Person Centred Plan (PCP)?
Person-centered planning involves service-driven approaches whereby a person with an intellectual disability is provided with a lot of support (Brown, 2014). Therefore, the support worker should make decisions that will enable the persons with intellectual disability to lead a life they see as relevant build on their strength, capacity, desires, and choices. The support worker should primarily include parents, siblings, or caregivers in the person-centered planning instead of weighing the interdependence between the person and the support network. Meaningful involvement is also based on power-sharing between the support workers since the plan is only enhanced and shared with others if the individuals show their capacity. Person-centered care and support plans should involve the staff in striving to help those individuals carry out their desires and achieve their goals hence giving them the full support they need (Brown, 2014).
How would you clarify your role in implementing a person’s PCP?
Similarly, a person of the cause may clarify their plan to implement a person’s CPC. For instance, it is impossible for a plan to be followed thoroughly by an individual, maybe because of some extreme difficulties with insights or cognitive.
Besides, plans may be implemented within services though services require cooperation and a broader community network (Brown, 2014)
Who would you consult if you were unable to provide the support required to implement the PCP?
If a support worker may consult with the care manager, the psychiatric consultant, professional networks, supervisors, and government bodies if he or she is unable to provide the support required to implement the PCP, collaborative care may help.
Identify three (3) strategies for monitoring and reviewing a person’s support requirements and needs.
Significantly there are strategies used to review and monitor a person’s support requirements and needs, such as ensuring all activities are consistent with its mission and values (Beadle-Brown, 2014). Keeping under review both internal and external changes may require adjustments or affect the individual’s ability to achieve their goals. Ensuring that all activities are kept within the agreed plans’ parameters, aims, and objectives, consulting with the correct people, and utilizing all the feedback.
Task 3: a case study
Identify three sources that David will require to undertake this activity.
Financial assistance facilitates all activities and requirements by David’s example to access support devices such as speaking and writing devices, paying personal assistance in charge of physical and behavioral assistance, and finance to access appropriate medication.
Transport facility since David’s movement is supported by wheelchair as well as personal assistance. A well automated wheelchair will help him since he does not use public transport facilities. An appropriate transport facility will allow easier access to destinations of David.
Government-sponsored programs for learning how to take care of cerebral palsy patients and access open government medication suitable for David.
How would one seek a suitable facility in the local area that offers this type of activity for David?
Swimming lessons for people with special needs like David require an excellent swimming pool facility with physical supporting equipment for people with special needs. The facility should also be able to offer therapy lessons such as physical therapy for David that will aid in physical body exercises.
In consultation with your supervisor, how could you facilitate the participation of this activity-based goal of David?
For David to achieve his swimming lessons and an interactive program session, I will consider first learning about cerebral palsy to know the behavior of patients, symptoms, and the basic needs and support to the patient. Getting organized also is a primary concern in case of emergencies, such as having the medical record history of David, school contact information, doctors contacts required medication, and emergency contacts. This will help in the proper handling of David in case of emergencies.
Identify two barriers that may be experienced by David when implementing this activity-based goal? Discuss how these barriers are overcome.
Some of the barriers that can be experienced include hearing problems learning disabilities as well movement-related disabilities. These problems can be solved through my well-experienced lessons on handling cerebral palsy patients and offering physical and psychological support. Example having interactive sessions with him alongside new friends for his social welfare support.
Discuss why it is essential to regularly review this activity-based goal with David to establish if it is still relevant for David and meaningful to his life.
David’s goal-based activity will be only meaningful when there is an improvement in his social welfare status with new friends, active participation in daily activities such as therapy lessons, improved physical and mental health, and improved learning process example, writing and reading.
What is the purpose of reflecting on your own work practices?
it is essential to reflect on your work practices since it increases a person’s self-awareness, which is a critical element in enhancing the comprehension of other people. Reflective practices encourage thinking about how our cultural frameworks, values, and beliefs critically impact our interactions with others.
What specific work practices can you identify for reflection?
Some of the specific work practices one can identify for reflection include self and peer assessment, problem-based learning, personal development planning, and group work (victor, 2018).
Give two (2) examples of methods for reflection on your work performance and practices.
There are various methods for reflection on a person’s performance and practices. For instance, one can use reflective journals, which are also known as learning journals. Journals are a way of reflecting through documenting one’s ideas, feelings, or observations. They enable one to focus on tor thoughts and develop their ideas. Further also organizes individual thinking by expounding on various issues and enhancing writing styles and skills. Another method for reflection on performance and practices is peer groups and cooperative inquiries. Individuals who frequently meet, they can think about their reflective activities and share ideas on how to enhance their skills.
