Discussion 3.1: How would you approach a parent or caregiver about the need for a referral for developmental screening of their child? What do you need to consider before talking to a parent or caregiver?
I would set up a meeting with the parents and the director of the center. I would let them know my concerns first before just assuming and ask about home life.

I would meet with the parent or caregiver and be as respectful as possible and voice my concerns. It's important to be communicative with parents about their children. Some things to consider are the child's home life. We don't want to be subjective and just assume things so we need to open up with the parent about those kind of things.

i would first set up a meeting with the parents of the child, and the centers head director, then i would then inform them on what the meeting is about, and then i would let them know my concerns regarding their child's development progress and then i would, i would need to consider the childs religion, the family background and what the parents are and arent okay with.

I will work with a coworker to script our discussion.  I will share the information objectively according to the documentation os our observations and knowledge.  I will have a list of local resources available to the parent/caregivers.

It's important to be objective, not to place blame on other children, but to state the facts and only the facts, not your opinion. Make sure to document everything so that the parent knows what happened and that they're able to deal with it as well.

I would plan what I need to say to a parent first, maybe with assistance from the center's director. It is best to consider what observations of the child you have so you can present those to the parent as evidence.

I would attempt to voice my concerns about the development of their child in a one-on-one setting if possible. I would be objective and provide them with observations that I have documented. I would keep in mind that the parents may become defensive or upset and try to be as kind and open minded as possible, while giving them as much room to share as they might need. I would then provide them with available resources and assure them that we can continue to work together as a team to provide the best care for their child.

I would first discuss with the rest of the teachers in the classroom and director what the next step would be. Set up a meeting with the parents or caregivers and explain to them about what you observed in their development but also explain that all children develop at a different rate.
