Exploring Individual Differences in School-Age Children: Implications for Programming (WN)

Description

One of the most significant challenges for staff in school-age programs is learning how to identify, manage, and respond appropriately to individual differences in a group setting. Some differences among children are the result of inborn characteristics and traits (e.g., physical characteristics, temperament, talents, race). Other differences are the result of external factors (e.g., the environment) or are cultivated as the child grows and develops (e.g., interests, skills, knowledge). The diverse needs, characteristics, interests, abilities, and skills of school-age children require a flexible atmosphere that supports diversity and choice for children with varying capacities for independent action. Staff who understand and appreciate individual differences in children are better equipped to plan and implement program experiences that help individual children grow and flourish in a group setting.
