UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORTING BEHAVIOR: CASE STUDY
Case study addressed: One
1.What strategies and interventions could you use to support the learners in the case study to make
decisions and guide their own behaviour?
An optimal solution for a majority of the challenges elicited in Gemma’s case would be one
that involves everyone in Gemma’s immediate environment. Bronfenbrenner describes this
immediate environment surrounding a child as their microsystem (2018). Within this microsystem
are close-knit relations that bear long term and resilient effects. As such, involvement of Gemma’s
family in the management of her behavior becomes a paramount strategy towards addressing most of
these issues. Additionally, clear communication within this environment becomes the key to the
success of the aforementioned strategy. It becomes important to inform Gemma prior to classroom
activities on the mat or during play of the expected behavior. This can be achieved by reinforcing
desirable behavioral traits in order to instill long-term changes to her behavior. Consequently, violent
behavior or mischief in class and home should be discouraged firmly with an emphasis on the
wholesome development of the child without instilling fear, pain or guilt.
An important aspect of early childhood education is the involvement of the child in the
development and implementation of the solution to the presented issues. Involvement would ensure
that Gemma better understands the importance of particular virtues while simultaneously offering a
platform for better relations between Gemma and the teacher. This not only helps to modify her less
desirable behavioral traits but also offers the opportunity to enhance Gemma’s school experience
positively.

UNDERSTANDING AND SUPPORTING BEHAVIOR: CASE STUDY
Gemma’s physical environment is very important towards her education and development.
Besides parents and instructors, the environment around a child is very critical towards their
education and acts as an additional teacher. As a result, the first area of interest is the child’s family
and home environment. Gemma needs to be afforded every necessary tool to her education and
curiosity in order to constantly stimulate her active intellect. Gemma’s parents also need to identify
any predisposing factors within this home environment that may cause Gemma’s violent outbreaks
and highly competitive nature (Viera et al., 2014).
At school, it becomes important to employ a hands-on approach with regards to dealing with
Gemma’s social shortcomings. Comfort from the teacher during times of distress and even
supportive intervention during playtime and other social activities becomes a useful tool to help
Gemma understand that better solutions to situations than violence exist. During class time activities,
Gemma needs to be afforded adequate resources as she is intelligent and may have valid opinions of
her own on what she needs. As such, constant involvement of the child in selecting their own tools
and methods to solve problems is useful in maximizing the educational benefit a school environment
offers (Allen & Cowdery,2014).
3.What specific involvement would external agencies and professionals have in the strategies outlined
in your response to the case study?
The Australian Council of Educational Research is a body that gathers and evaluates trends in
the education policy, strategies and frameworks employed in schools in Australia. By analyzing the
various specific environmental influences to a child’s education as well as suitable policy for
governing childhood education applied to broader spectrum of specific situations, the organization
would provide a guiding tool for instructors to apply appropriately to these situations according to
the student’s needs. In Gemma’s situation, better frameworks that describe the psychological
