Hi

The first one about adapting communication for children and young people is about the difference between say a 5 year old to a teenager. So for instance you wouldn't talk about sex with a child but you would with a teenager, that being said the type of conversation about sex with an adult would differ to that with a teenager. Also a child might require more reassurance, comfort and physical contact; whereas a young person might require help expressing their feelings or understanding their emotions.

The second one, social/professional / culture I basically explained who different each setting is, for example the type of clothes and person wears in a social setting would be inappropriate for a meeting etc. Also that difficulties can happen as a result of cultural differences or lack of knowledge or understanding for different cultures.

I found the professional one tricky. But then thought about the type of relationship I might have with my doctor or a solicitor for instance. The way I would communicate would differ from the way I would with a friend or colleague.

I hope this made some sense and helps a bit
Good Luck

Oh good, glad I could help. I'm only on unit two myself but I had to retype that assignment 3 times! First it didn't send and I hadn't saved! Second was a resubmit because the layout wasn't correct! Third I passed! so that unit is etched in my brain! Lol

Actually I was a science student and have done my Faculty in science and I've only done work on paper like diagrams etc .. And I'm not very sure about assignments...

The layout is just like an essay. But when the question asks for difference between child, young and adult, you have to write a specific sentence or two about each one. It illustrates that you understand the difference and are not just generalising. My tutor explained explained that students usually write a lot about children and adults but skim over young people. The way I differentiated was my children. How I communicate with my 5 year old, to my 11 year old and then again with my husband. When you have finished you can either upload the whole assignment or simply copy and paste each answer in to the boxes provided. It must be 12 font Times Roman
