An analysis of multiple misplaced parental social contingencies. (1/1523)

This study analyzed the training of a mother to modify five subclasses of her attention to her young child's noncompliance with instructions, and also displayed the changes in her child's behavior correlated with these events. Training in four subclasses consisted of teaching the mother to withhold various forms of social attention to her daughter's undesired behavior; training in the fifth subclass involved introduction of a brief room-timeout procedure for noncompliance. The effectiveness of the parent-training procedure, consisting of initial instructions and daily feedback, was demonstrated through a multiple-baseline design across the five subclasses of parent behavior. Sequential decreased in the first three subclasses of the mother's social attention to undesired child behavior resulted in incomplete improvements in some child responses; however, a decrease in the fourth subclass resulted in a significant increase in undesired child behavior. Complete remediation of all child behaviors was achieved following the training of a timeout procedure for noncompliance. Postchecks conducted up to 16 weeks later showed that these effects were durable.  (+info)

The effects of social punishment on noncompliance: a comparison with timeout and positive practice. (2/1523)

The effects of social punishment, positive practice, and timeout on the noncompliant behavior of four mentally retarded children were assessed in a multitreatment withdrawal design. When programmed, the experimental procedure occurred contigent on non-compliance to experimenter-issued commands. Commands were given at 55-sec intervals throughout each experimental session. The results showed (1) lower levels of noncompliance with social punishment than with the positive-practice or timeout conditions, and (2) that relatively few applications of social punishment were required to obtain this effect. The advantages of social punishment over other punishment procedures, considerations to be made before using it, and the various aspects of the procedure that contribute to its effectiveness were discussed.  (+info)

Alternate child care, history of hospitalization, and preschool child behavior. (4/1523)

BACKGROUND: With more single mothers entering the workforce due to welfare reform efforts, more hospitalized children from single-parent families will have experienced alternate child care arrangements where routine care is provided by adults other than the child's mother. OBJECTIVES: To investigate with secondary analysis of data whether experience with alternate child care has a moderating effect on the relationship between hospitalization and behavior of preschool children living in female-headed single-parent families. METHOD: A sample of 60 preterm and 61 full-term children who were 3, 4, or 5 years old was recruited for the larger longitudinal study. Behavior problems were measured with the Child Behavior Checklist. History of hospitalization and alternate child care arrangements were measured with the Life History Calendar. RESULTS: Preschool children who experienced hospitalization without alternate child care experience had more somatic complaints, but those with both hospital and alternate child care experience had fewer aggressive behaviors than other children. For children with a history of hospitalization, aggressive behaviors decreased as the proportion of the child's life in alternate child care increased. CONCLUSIONS: Experience with alternate child care may ameliorate some of the negative effects of hospitalization, and potentially other novel and negative experiences, for preschool children. This could be due to child care providing positive experiences with separation from the mother, a peer group with which to talk about the novel experience, or actual instruction about the novel experience.  (+info)

Health needs of preschool children. (5/1523)

An epidemiological study of disease in a geographically identified population of 250 children is reported. 22% had not seen their general practitioner (GP) at all in the past year, while 20% had seen him four times or more. The vast majority of these visits were because of an infective illness; and developmental and behavioural problems were rarely presented to GPs. 53% of children had not been to hospital since birth, but 11% had been at least four times. Respiratory infections and middle ear disease were the commonest illness reported, and nearly 3% had an infected or discharging ear at the time of examination. 15% of 3 year olds had speech and language problems. 18% of children over 2 years were thought by the examiners to have a behavioural problem, half being assessed as mild, the remainder as moderate or severe.  (+info)

Use of the Pediatric Symptom Checklist to screen for psychosocial problems in pediatric primary care: a national feasibility study. (6/1523)

BACKGROUND: Routine use of a brief psychosocial screening instrument has been proposed as a means of improving recognition, management, and referral of children's psychosocial morbidity in primary care. OBJECTIVE: To assess the feasibility of routine psychosocial screening using the Pediatric Symptom Checklist (PSC) in pediatrics by using a brief version of the checklist in a large sample representative of the full range of pediatric practice settings in the United States and Canada. We evaluated large-scale screening and the performance of the PSC in detecting psychosocial problems by (1) determining whether the prevalence of psychosocial dysfunction identified by the PSC was consistent with findings in previous, smaller samples; (2) assessing whether the prevalence of positive PSC screening scores varied by population subgroups; and (3) determining whether the PSC was completed by a significant proportion of parents from all subgroups and settings. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Twenty-one thousand sixty-five children between the ages of 4 and 15 years were seen in 2 large primary care networks: the Ambulatory Sentinel Practice Network and the Pediatric Research in Office Settings network, involving 395 pediatric and family practice clinicians in 44 states, Puerto Rico, and 4 Canadian provinces. Parents were asked to complete a brief questionnaire that included demographic information, history of mental health services, the 35-item PSC, and the number of pediatric visits within the past 6 months. RESULTS: The overall prevalence rates of psychosocial dysfunction as measured by the PSC in school-aged and preschool-aged pediatric outpatients (13% and 10%, respectively) were nearly identical to the rates that had been reported in several smaller samples (12%-14% among school-aged children and 7%-14% among preschoolers). Consistent with previous findings, children from low-income families were twice as likely to be scored as dysfunctional on the PSC than were children from higher-income families. Similarly, children from single-parent as opposed to those from 2-parent families and children with a past history of mental health services showed an elevated risk of psychosocial impairment. The current study was the first to demonstrate a 50% increase in risk of impairment for male children. The overall rate of completed forms was 97%, well within an acceptable range, and at least 94% of the parents in each sociodemographic subgroup completed the PSC form. CONCLUSIONS: Use of the PSC offers an approach to the recognition of psychosocial dysfunction that is sufficiently consistent across groups and locales to become part of comprehensive pediatric care in virtually all outpatient settings. In addition to its clinical utility, the consistency and widespread acceptability of the PSC make it well suited for the next generation of pediatric mental health services research, which can address whether earlier recognition of and intervention for psychosocial problems in pediatrics will lead to cost-effective outcomes.  (+info)

The Montefiore community children's project: a controlled study of cognitive and emotional problems of homeless mothers and children. (7/1523)

OBJECTIVES: This study compares the prevalence of emotional, academic, and cognitive impairment in children and mothers living in the community with those living in shelters for the homeless. METHOD: In New York City, 82 homeless mothers and their 102 children, aged 6 to 11, recruited from family shelters were compared to 115 nonhomeless mothers with 176 children recruited from classmates of the homeless children. Assessments included standardized tests and interviews. RESULTS: Mothers in shelters for the homeless showed higher rates of depression and anxiety than did nonhomeless mothers. Boys in homeless shelters showed higher rates of serious emotional and behavioral problems. Both boys and girls in homeless shelters showed more academic problems than did nonhomeless children. CONCLUSION: Study findings suggest a need among homeless children for special attention to academic problems that are not attributable to intellectual deficits in either children or their mothers. Although high rates of emotional and behavioral problems characterized poor children living in both settings, boys in shelters for the homeless may be particularly in need of professional attention.  (+info)

The relation between behavior problems and peer preference in different classroom contexts. Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (8/1523)

This study tested two alternative hypotheses regarding the relations between child behavior and peer preference. The first hypothesis is generated from the person-group similarity model, which predicts that the acceptability of social behaviors will vary as a function of peer group norms. The second hypothesis is generated by the social skill model, which predicts that behavioral skill deficiencies reduce and behavioral competencies enhance peer preference. A total of 2895 children in 134 regular first-grade classrooms participated in the study. Hierarchical linear modeling was used to compare four different behaviors as predictors of peer preference in the context of classrooms with varying levels of these behavior problems. The results of the study supported both predictive models, with the acceptability of aggression and withdrawal varying across classrooms (following a person-group similarity model) and the effects of inattentive/hyperactive behavior (in a negative direction) and prosocial behavior (in a positive direction) following a social skill model and remaining constant in their associations with peer preference across classrooms. Gender differences also emerged, with aggression following the person-group similarity model for boys more strongly than for girls. The effects of both child behaviors and the peer group context on peer preference and on the trajectory of social development are discussed.  (+info)

This prospective population-based study examined associations between childrens behaviour problems and maternal employment. Information on childrens behaviour problems at 3 years from 22,115 mothers employed before pregnancy and participating in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study were linked to national register data on employment and relevant social background factors, mothers self-reported susceptibility to anxiety/depression and mother-reports of day-care attendance and fathers income. Mothers reporting their child to have severe (,2 SD) internalizing or severe combined behaviour problems (5 %) had excess risk of leaving paid employment irrespective of other important characteristics generally associated with maternal employment (RR 1.24-1.31). The attributable risk percent ranged from 30.3 % (internalizing problems) to 32.4 % (combined problems). Externalizing behaviour problems were not uniquely associated with mothers leaving employment ...
To assess the association between fluoride exposure and childrens behavioural outcomes, we recruited 325 resident school-age children (7-13 years old) lived in Tongxu County of Henan Province in China. We measured urinary fluoride (UF) concentrations using the ion-selective electrode method. Childrens behavioural outcomes were assessed by Conners Parent Rating Scale-Revised, including conduct problems, learning problems, psychosomatic problems, impulsive-hyperactive, anxiety, and ADHD index. It turned out that each 1.0 mg/L increment in UF concentration corresponded with an elevation in the psychosomatic problem score of 4.01 (95% CI: 2.74, 5.28) and a 97% (OR = 1.97, 95% CI: 1.19, 3.27) increase in the prevalence of psychosomatic problems after adjusting for potential influencing factors. The sensitivity analysis results were consistent with those observed in our preliminary analysis. Our study suggests that fluoride exposure is positively related to the behavioural problem in school-age ...
RESULTS: Children with nonregular bedtimes had more behavioral difficulties. There was an incremental worsening in behavioral scores as exposure through early childhood to not having regular bedtimes increased: mother rated (nonregular any 1 age, β = 0.53; nonregular any 2 ages, β = 1.04; nonregular all 3 ages, β = 2.10, P , .001) and teacher rated (β = 0.22, β = 0.73, β = 1.85, P , .001). Difference in differences analysis showed that for children who changed from nonregular to regular bedtimes there were clear nontrivial, statistically significant improvements in behavioral scores: A change between age 3 and 7 corresponded to a difference of β = −0.63, and a change between age 5 and 7 corresponded to a difference of β = −1.02). For children who changed from regular to nonregular bedtimes between ages 5 and 7 there was a statistically significant worsening in scores, β = 0.42. ...
The study highlights that there is substantial variation across informants in the links between associated factors and child psychopathology.
Previous research has identified a social gradient in young childrens psychological well-being when reported by parents. However, there has been scant research comparing socioeconomic inequality between informants. An analysis of the 1999 and 2004 British Child and Adolescent Mental Health Surveys indicated that parent-reported and teacher-reported SDQ scores (in 11-year-olds to 15-year-olds) were similarly related to socioeconomic characteristics, and more strongly than for reports by young people themselves.5 Our findings indicate that teachers assessment of young childrens psychological well-being has a weaker, but still significant, relationship with childrens SECs. These differences may be attributable to a number of factors related to SECs. Reporting bias could account for the lower prevalence of borderline/abnormal behaviour in parent reports compared with teacher reports in children from more advantaged backgrounds. For example, better educated mothers may be more inclined to ...
Background: Knowledge of long-term health related outcomes in contemporary populations born extremely preterm (EP) is scarce.We aimed to explore developmental trajectories of health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and behavior from mid-childhood to early adulthood in extremely pretermand term-born individuals.. Methods: Subjects born at gestational age ≤28 weeks or with birth weight ≤1,000 g within a region of Norway in 1991-92 and matched term-born control subjects were assessed at 10 and 18 years. HRQoL was measured with the Child Health Questionnaire (CHQ) and behavior with the Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL), using parent assessment at both ages and self-assessment at 18 years.. Results: All eligible EP (n = 35) and control children participated at 10 years, and 31 (89%) and 29 (83%) at 18 years. At 10 years, the EP born boys were given significantly poorer scores by their parents than term-born controls on most CHQ and CBCL scales, but the differences were minor at 18 years; i.e., ...
Does your child have behavior problems? Child Mind Institute helps you understand and find the best way to handle childhood behavior problems.
In order to reduce the influence of cultural background and language skills, we evaluated participants nonverbal cognition. The Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery system (CANTAB) was chosen since the tasks can mostly be administered nonverbally, reducing language and cultural influences (Roque et al. 2011). CANTAB was applicable to our participants since it contains normative data for children. Four tasks were selected. Three of these focused on testing executive functions, and one on visual memory, based on previous work by Roque et al. (2011). The tasks chosen were: Spatial Span (SSP); Stockings of Cambridge (SOC); Intra/Extra Dimensional Set Shifting (IED); and Pattern Recognition Memory (PRM). These tasks were conducted according to the test administration guide (Cambridge Cognition 2012).. In addition to the tests detailed, Digit Span tasks were conducted in Japanese and Portuguese. These were added to our study so that we could measure participants verbal working memory, ...

AIMS: Mental problems and their potential socio-demographic determinants were investigated in young schoolchildren in Sweden, a high-income country in the top of income- and gender-equality rankings.. METHODS: Cross-sectional study of 1465 schoolchildren in grades 3 and 6. Mental health was measured by the Child Behavior Checklist and the Youth Self Report (Total problems and 14 specific problem areas). Potential socio-demographic determinants were sex, parental education and occupation, family structure, and immigrant status.. RESULTS: Mental problems were present in 14% of the sixth graders and in 7% of the third graders. In grade 3, the mean total problem score was lower in girls than in boys, but the prevalence of problems at a subclinical/clinical level did not differ by sex. Furthermore, in nine to 13 of the 14 specific problem areas, problems were equally distributed by sex, parental education, parental occupation, immigrant status, and family structure. In grade 6, both the total mean ...
In this nationally representative sample, children with common behavioral disorders incurred overall expenditures similar to those of children with asthma, epilepsy, and diabetes. These expenditures were significantly greater than those of children without these conditions. Children with behavioral disorders had increased overall expenditures mainly as a result of greater office-based ambulatory care and prescription medication costs. Among children with behavioral disorders, children with emotional disorders incurred twofold higher expenditures than children with disruptive disorders. These increased expenditures were in part caused by substantially greater expenditures for inpatient hospital stays.. Our finding that children with common behavioral disorders and physical conditions incur similar health care costs is consistent with previously reported findings involving comparisons of children with ADHD and asthma. For instance, Kelleher et al, using Medicaid data from southwestern ...

TBI survivors who sustain frontal and temporal lobe injuries may face neurobehavioral difficulties which stem from poor coping, planning, and organizational skills, preexisting and continued alcohol/substance abuse or dependence, poor frustration tolerance, impulsivity, etc. Behavioral difficulties which lead to social integration issues are often wrongly attributed to malicious intent rather than a consequence of the TBI. Further, these issues can be adversely influenced by lack of family or societal education regarding TBIs, high caregiver stress, exhausted financial resources and supports, etc. All of these factors directly impact the survivors rehabilitation trajectory and related behavioral challenges.. The staff of NeuroInternational is highly skilled and experienced with neurobehavioral cases. We help survivors reestablish routine, structure, medication compliance, and therapeutic relationships which facilitate reductions in the frequency and intensity of behavioral problems. Our ...

Research indicates that children living with a chronic illness have a higher level of behavior problems than children not living with an illness. However, mediating factors must be examined in order to create a clearer picture of the influence of a chronic health condition on children. Therefore, this research examined the mediating influence of economic strain, childs health stress, parental psychological distress, and parenting behaviors on child behavior, as well as the moderating impact of social support on all previously mentioned variables. Structural equation modeling was used to model each of these relationships. Data came from responses to the Panel Study of Income Dynamics Child Development Supplement that included both children not living with an illness (n=806) and children living with a chronic illness (n=693) who were between the ages of 6 and 13 and their primary caregivers. The chronic illnesses included in the sample are anemia (n=120), asthma (n=157), diabetes (n=3), and ...
Our ABA programs are data-driven and individualized. A highly skilled BCBA plans and supervises each ABA program. Individual program goals are set for each client based on extensive initial and ongoing assessment. Detailed program plans are based on the chosen individual goals. Then data is collected on all goals as programing is implemented so that progress can be monitored and changes to the teaching strategies can be made if needed.. Behavioral methods utilized in our ABA programs include systematically teaching and rewarding desired behaviors, such as following instructions, sharing, and using sounds/words to communicate, while at the same time making sure not to reward childrens problem behaviors, such as noncompliance, engaging in tantrums, and aggression. The goal of our ABA treatment is to find out what motivates and interests each individual child so that these enjoyable items and activities can be used to encourage the child to learn new skills and to ultimately become more ...

There was no difference in full-scale IQ scores in type 1 diabetic and control Subjects (100.7 ± 2.0 vs. 102.5 ± 1.4). There was no difference between groups in memory subtests or in reporting of emotional and behavioral difficulties. The type 1 diabetes group scored lower on the CCFIT for fluid intelligence compared with control subjects (P = 0.028) and also scored lower on WCST with more perseverative errors (P = 0.002) and fewer categories completed (P = 0.022).. CONCLUSIONS ...

The second quote was interesting because tantrums are looming just over the horizon, and we are starting to catch a glimpse of them already. To be honest, I didnt have the slightest idea what to do about tantrums before I read about them. I had a vague idea of ignoring the child, or doing something like Id seen on shows like Supernanny. But what I now understand is that when toddlers start to tantrum some time in the second year of life - it is not manipulative - it is just pure, uncontrolled emotion. (Ive heard some people prefer to call them melt-downs, and in many ways this is more apt.) Toddlers naturally grow out of tantrums as their emotional control improves and they learn alternative strategies to manage their emotions. Manipulative tantrums develop down the track only if parents respond to the initial melt-down tantrums by giving the child what they want. Hence, there is no need to punish tantrum behaviour, but just to be kind but firm in saying no (you cant have that lolly, ...

I found this page by googling when nothing works to calm a violent toddler tantrum. I know most of your posts were from years ago. But I hope someone out there spots this and replies. I feel the same way all of you feel. My son is 3. He has violent tantrums too. We try being calm first. Weve tried positive and negative reinforcement. Weve tried being firm when being calm doesnt work. And when nothing else works,we end up having our own tantrums too, which result in yelling and spanking. The spanking is more rare than the yelling. Neither get the desired result. I sometimes feel like the real reason he calms down is not because of the yelling or the spanking. Its just that by the time we do that, hes been upset for so long that hes actually worn himself out. I see in so many posts that its best to just ignore the tantrum. And thats something we arent very consistent with. My husband is a bit worse at this than I am. And often, I give in because I know my husband doesnt want to just ...

Ever feel as though you could set your watch by your toddlers tantrums? Pinpoint his meltdown pattern, and its possible to sail through the day!
If saying calm down to your crying child doesnt help, thats because your child cant actually calm down during a tantrum. (Never in the history of calming down has anyone ever calmed down by being told to calm down.) Heres what does work, according to experts.
One way to prevent tantrums before they occur is to give your toddler the illusion of control. Offer your child choices, rather than commands, and be sensitive to his limits.

Health effects from Extremely Low Frequency (ELF) EF and MF. Overall, existing studies do not provide convincing evidence for a causal relationship between ELF MF exposure and self-reported symptoms.. The new epidemiological studies are consistent with earlier findings of an increased risk of childhood leukaemia with estimated daily average exposures above 0.3 to 0.4 µT. As stated in the previous Opinions, no mechanisms have been identified and no support is existing from experimental studies that could explain these findings, which, together with shortcomings of the epidemiological studies prevent a causal interpretation.. Studies investigating possible effects of ELF exposure on the power spectra of the waking EEG are too heterogeneous with regard to applied fields, duration of exposure, and number of considered leads, and statistical methods to draw a sound conclusion. The same is true for behavioural outcomes and cortical excitability.. Epidemiological studies do not provide convincing ...

Purpose. Parents have important roles in child rearing, but the influence of their personality on rearing practices and their impact on the behavior of children has received surprisingly little attention. The aim of the current study was to investigate the relationship between parents personality and childrens problem behaviors.Materials and Methods. Participants consisted of 190 preschool outpatients (104 boys, 86 girls) and their parents who visited traditional Korean pediatric clinics with minor physical symptoms as chief complaints. The personality profiles of the both parents were measured by the Temperament and Character Inventory and childrens behavior problems by the Child Behavior Checklist 1.5-5. Correlation and stepwise regression analysis were employed for the statistical analyses.Results. The temperament trait of Harm Avoidance and the character traits of Self-Directedness and Self-Transcendence of the parents were significantly correlated with childrens problem behaviors.

BACKGROUND: There is a lack of evidence regarding the effect of dose, pattern and timing of prenatal alcohol exposure and behaviour problems in children aged 2 years and older. METHODS: A 10% random sample of women delivering a live infant in Western Australia (1995-96) were invited to participate in an 8-year longitudinal survey (78% response rate n = 2224); 85% were followed-up at 2 years, 73% at 5 years and 61% at 8 years. Alcohol consumption was classified by combining the overall dose, dose per occasion and frequency to reflect realistic drinking patterns. Longitudinal analysis was conducted using generalized estimating equations (GEE) to investigate the association between child behaviour as measured by the Child Behaviour Checklist at 2, 5 and 8 years of age and prenatal alcohol exposure collected 3 months postpartum for each trimester separately, adjusting for a wide range of confounding factors. RESULTS: Low levels of prenatal alcohol were not associated with child behaviour problems. There
Child psychopathology refers to the scientific study of mental disorders in children and adolescents. Oppositional defiant disorder, attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder, and autism spectrum disorder are examples of psychopathology that are typically first diagnosed during childhood. Mental health providers who work with children and adolescents are informed by research in developmental psychology, clinical child psychology, and family systems. Lists of child and adult mental disorders can be found in the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, 10th Edition (ICD-10), published by the World Health Organization (WHO) and in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, Fifth Edition (DSM-5), published by the American Psychiatric Association (APA). In addition, the Diagnostic Classification of Mental Health and Developmental Disorders of Infancy and Early Childhood (DC: 0-3R) is used in assessing mental health and developmental disorders in ...
Although far lower than in western countries, divorce rates in Mainland China are rising rapidly. To assess possible associations between divorce and childrens problems, a team of Chinese and Japanese researchers used CBCL/4-18 and TRF data from a stratified random sample of 4,862 Chinese children (Liu et al., 2000).. Children of divorced parents were demographically matched to control children from nondivorced families. After adjusting for differences in family income, Liu et al. found that children from divorced families scored significantly higher than control children on all CBCL problem scales and on TRF Social Problems, Attention Problems, and Total Problems scales.. In addition, odds ratios showed that significantly more children from divorced families than control children scored above the Chinese clinical cutpoint on the TRF Attention Problems scale. Parents ratings may have shown more pervasive differences between the two groups of children because stresses in the home were more ...
The age range of first-time mothers in Canada is increasing, with an astonishing 195% increase in the number of women delaying their pregnancies after 35 years of age. However, the research around maternal and child outcomes usually focus on teen (under 19 years) and optimal age (20-34 years) groups, and seldom focus on examining the characteristics of health-related outcomes within the advanced age group (over 35 years and older). Therefore, the importance of examining maternal and child health outcomes by maternal age, especially the advanced age group, is greatly emphasized. This three-part dissertation sought to address the research gaps around maternal and child outcomes by maternal age. The first study, Characteristics of social support among teenage, optimal age, and advanced age mothers in Canada was a cross-sectional analysis of the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY), which examined the prevalence and characteristics of social support by maternal age. The second ...

TY - JOUR. T1 - Behavior problems in children requiring inpatient rehabilitation treatment for asthma. AU - Furrow, D.. AU - Hambley, J.. AU - Brazil, K.. N1 - Medline is the source for the MeSH terms of this document.. PY - 1989/1/1. Y1 - 1989/1/1. N2 - Forty-eight asthmatic children (age 6-16 years), inpatients at the Hugh McMillan Medical Centre, were rated by their parents on their behavior using Achenbachs Child Behaviour Checklist. Completed checklists were used to determine normalized T scores for behavior syndromes, and these were compared against norms for clinically referred and nonreferred children. Behavior problems were elevated compared with nonreferred children for both boys and girls, with boys scoring at a clinical level. While many behavior problems were recognized, somatic complaints was a prominent syndrome, particularly for those in the 6-11-year age group.. AB - Forty-eight asthmatic children (age 6-16 years), inpatients at the Hugh McMillan Medical Centre, were rated by ...
DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Research has found that parent-targeted interventions were effective to ameliorate Conduct Disorders and other comorbid conditions (e.g. substance abuse). There exist major obstacles to the effective delivery of support services, particularly in rural areas. Ethnic minority populations are especially disadvantaged with respect to risk for child behavioral problems, barriers to participation, and access to culturally sensitive interventions. In addition, the meteoric rise of internet use has created a new avenue to disseminate and share empirically validated programs. Internet programs open the opportunity for technology based multimedia intervention through programs that can be interactive and provide social support from peers and professionals. Through the use of recent advances in multimedia technology and software, as well as the rise of computer and internet use, there now exists an opportunity to provide such remote support for families in rural ...
Among 220 children in the study, 61% were boys, 56% were black, and 77% had moderate to severe asthma, with the rest having mild asthma. Children included in the study had to have a diagnosis of asthma with no other health problems and be exposed to at least five cigarettes a day. According to estimates provided by parents, children were exposed to an average of 13 cigarettes a day. Because parental estimates can be inaccurate, says Yolton, investigators also measured the cotinine levels in the childrens blood. (Cotinine is a byproduct, or metabolite, of nicotine and is often used as a biomarker to more accurately measure tobacco smoke exposure.) Behavioral patterns were reported by parents using the Behavioral Assessment System for Children ...
D. Safe learning environments. School environments should be physically, socially, and psychologically safe for all students. Safe classrooms have clearly established behavioral expectations and crisis or safety plans in place to deal with difficult and unsafe situations. Safe classrooms also have clear distinctions between office-referral and classroom-managed behavioral difficulties to prevent unnecessary or excessive disciplinary referrals. In situations where problem behaviors occur, options exist to allow for classroom instruction to resolve the situation. In cases of emergency in the classroom, all students should be familiar with the schools emergency plans.. V. POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR REPORTING AND RESPONDING TO BULLYING AND RETALIATION. Reporting bullying or retaliation. Reports of bullying or retaliation may be made by staff, students, parents or guardians, or others, and may be oral or written. Oral reports made by or to a staff member shall be recorded in writing. A school or ...
Downloadable! We estimate the effect of neighbours characteristics and prior achievements on teenage students educational and behavioural outcomes using census data on several cohorts of secondary school students in England. Our research design is based on changes in neighbourhood composition caused explicitly by residential migration amongst students in our dataset. The longitudinal nature and detail of the data allows us to control for student unobserved characteristics, neighbourhood fixed effects and time trends, school-by-cohort fixed effects, as well as students observable attributes and prior attainments. The institutional setting also allows us to distinguish between neighbours who attend the same or different schools, and thus examine interactions between school and neighbourhood peers. Overall, our results provide evidence that peers in the neighbourhood have no effect on test scores, but have a small effect on behavioural outcomes, such as attitudes towards schooling and anti-social

Since the study was based on associations, it doesnt necessarily tell us that drinking soft drinks caused the behavioural problems, but this study does support the possibility.. For example, you might think that drinking more soda was a signal that a child had a troubled background. And it was the troubled background that was the real cause of the behavioural problems.. The researchers found evidence against this possibility by measuring the following factors and taking them into account:. ...
More recently, techniques of cluster analysis (Everitt, 1974) have been applied to groups of children according to both the behavioral characteristics which they do have in common and those which they do not. Wolkind and Everitt (1974) found clusters of normal behavior, conduct disorder, and emotional disorder in a study of preschool children. Using discriminant-function analysis, Bartak, Rutter, and Cox (1977) differentiated children with infantile autism from those with developmental receptive dysphasia on the basis of behavioral, language, and cognitive criteria. 2. Follow-Up of Children with Reading Difficulties Both the backward and the retarded readers had made little progress in the intervening years. On average, they scored at the 9-year EPIDEMIOLOGY OF CHILD PSYCHOPATHOLOGY 35 level. Their spelling was even more impaired than their reading. If anything, the brighter children with specific reading retardation had made even less progress than the backward readers. This means that the ...

This chapter uses data from the Millennium Cohort Study (MCS) to examine the self-reported perceptions of parents about their relationships, how well they predict later break-up of relationships, and whether they are related to parenting behaviours and to child outcomes at age 5. It notes that a large body of research suggests that the quality of the relationship between parents is related to parenting behaviours, the interactions between parent and child, and child behavioural and cognitive outcomes. It explains that the quality of a relationship may affect child outcomes direct or may have an effect through parenting behaviour, that is, relationship quality may affect parenting behaviours that in turn affect child outcomes. It adds that theoretical models have been proposed to explain both direct and indirect pathways for such effects.
