EC2073 Child Guidance
Early Childhood Educators (ECEs) encounter children with exceptionalities and/or challenging behaviours who require guidance and support. Using the theory and knowledge gained, Child Guidance provides positive guidance strategies that are introduced and explored in-depth to increase an ECE’s ability to successfully support all children in their care. Child Guidance focuses on children living with exceptionalities or exhibiting challenging behaviors and their possible underlying causes. Students also explore the cognitive, physical, emotional, social, and behavioural differences often associated of children with varying exceptionalities. Throughout the course, the emphasis remains on the uniqueness of an individual child and the evidence-based practices, which support specific child-centred guidance methods.
