Professor Julie Fisher explains the – often subtle – differences between interacting and interfering when communicating with young children.

Professor Julie Fisher is an independent Early Years Adviser and visiting Professor of Early Childhood Education at Oxford Brookes University. She was a lecturer in early childhood education at the University of Reading and was then an Early Years Adviser in Oxfordshire for 11 years. She has taught children from 3 to 12 years of age and has been headteacher of two urban, multi-cultural schools.

Her latest book – ‘Interacting or Interfering?’ – draws on research into effective interactions between practitioners and children aged six months to six years. In this video, we discuss some top tips and strategies for practitioners and educators that emerged from this research; the role of the environment in stimulating interactions; the role of the practitioner during interactions with children; how we ‘tune into’ children; techniques for ‘questioning’ children.
