The assignment is about communication and values meaning how we communicate to the elderly and young people and children. I am going to find out the barriers that stop communication being success full to the elderly and the youngsters in primary schools and nurseries like how we overcome people being deaf and people who can’t speak. I will also be finding out the different situations there are and how the problems can be overcome to make communication successful. I have changed the names of the elderly to keep it confidentiality to gain the trust of the elderly and not make them feel as if someone knows who they are and make them feel uncomfortable and unsafe .
Language – Spoken and Written, Formal and Informal
For communication we use language because language is spoken and written, formal and informal. Spoken language is communicating by talking to the receiver that you are sending the message to.

The reason why we have Braille for the blind is because they can’t see the words to know what has been written so that is was why they created Braille so they could read through their fingers when touching the words while reading.
