METHODS: Children born from 1982 to 2004 in metropolitan Atlanta with CHDs (n = 3744) were identified from a population-based birth defect surveillance program; children without birth defects (n = 860 715) were identified from birth certificates. Cohorts were linked to special education files for the 1992-2012 school years to identify special education services. Children with noncardiac defects or genetic syndromes were excluded; children with CHDs were classified by presence or absence of critical CHDs (ie, CHDs requiring intervention by age one year). We evaluated the prevalence of receipt of special education services and prevalence rate ratios using children without birth defects as a reference. ...

European Journal of Special Needs Education Internationally and in Ireland, the adoption of inclusive education frameworks have been broadly welcomed, particularly by parents of children with special educational needs (SEN). Mainstreaming these children is generally viewed as positive primarily because of the social factors associated with attending mainstream schools for children with SEN. Despite this commonly held view, there is increasing evidence to show that children with SEN have difficulties participating in mainstream environments. Using data from the Growing Up in Ireland study of 8,578 nine year olds, this paper examines whether peer relations differ among typically developing students and students with different types of SEN. We focus on the quantity and quality of peer relations using data on the childs number of friends and, using the Strengths and Difficulties Questionnaire, the quality of ...

Medicines that damage the ear and cause hearing loss are known as ototoxic medicines. They are a common cause of hearing loss, especially in older adults who have to take medicine on a regular basis. In most cases, hearing loss occurs because the medicine damages the cochlea in the inner ear.. Hearing loss caused by an ototoxic medicine tends to develop quickly. The first symptoms usually are ringing in the ears (tinnitus) and vertigo. Hearing usually returns to normal after you stop taking the medicine. But some medicines can cause permanent damage to the inner ear. This results in permanent hearing loss even if you stop taking the medicine.. Commonly used medicines that may cause hearing loss include:. ...
BACKGROUND: Self-reported hearing measures are useful for surveying hearing loss in a population because they are short, and easy to administer by either questionnaire or telephone. This study aims to assess the performance of several self-reported hearing measures to identify hearing loss in a group of Iowa farmers. METHODS: The study subjects were 98 male farmers who participated in the Iowa Fa
Hearing loss (presbycusis) is fairly common among people over the age of 50. Studies have indicated that age and kidney disease are two factors that can influence hearing loss. One study indicated that some degree of hearing loss was associated with 54 percent of people with moderate kidney disease. Of that 54 percent, 30 percent of them actually suffered from significant hearing loss. It is not suggested, in the study, that kidney disease actually causes loss of hearing; the study only states that there is a connection between hearing loss and kidney disease.. Statistics of hearing loss among people with kidney disease. The incidence of hearing loss among those with kidney disease is higher than the percentage of people in the general population, of people over 50, who suffers from hearing loss. Generally, the percentage of hearing loss in ...

Background: Mutations in GJB2 are the most common molecular defects responsible for autosomal recessive nonsyndromic hearing impairment (NSHI). The mutation spectra of this gene vary among different ethnic groups. Methods: In order to understand the spectrum and frequency of GJB2 mutations in the Chinese population, the coding region of the GJB2 gene from 2063 unrelated patients with NSHI was PCR amplified and sequenced. Results: A total of 23 pathogenic mutations were identified. Among them, five (p.W3X, c.99delT, c.155_c.158delTCTG, c.512_c.513insAACG, and p.Y152X) are novel. Three hundred and seven patients carry two confirmed pathogenic mutations, including 178 homozygotes and 129 compound heterozygotes. One hundred twenty five patients carry only one mutant allele. Thus, GJB2 mutations account for 17.9% of the mutant alleles in 2063 NSHI patients. Overall, 92.6% (684/739) of the pathogenic mutations are frame-shift truncation or nonsense mutations. The four prevalent mutations; ...
COREs Excellence in Education Blog post this month is on the impact of the Supreme Courts Unanimous Ruling on Special Education, setting a higher standard for students with disabilities.. (By Linda Diamond, Author of the Teaching Reading Sourcebook and COREs Founder). Finally, special education students are getting the attention they deserve. In March the Supreme Court issued a unanimous decision in the case of Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District RE-1. This decision will have an impact on how schools address the needs of students with disabilities. Chief Justice Roberts, who authored the opinion, established a more rigorous test for determining whether school districts are indeed providing a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students with disabilities. The ruling specifically stated that:. "To meet its ...

Hearing loss affects a large portion of the population and occurs not only due to aging - in many cases it can be noise induced. It is important to know which situations put hearing in danger and thus should be avoided and to note that hearing impairment may be gradual and exacerbated with time. This means that once incurred it should not be treated as a final condition but measures should be taken to preserve residual hearing. Hearing loss, besides defined by type (sensorineural, conductive or mixed), can be classified by severity as well. The degree of hearing loss is measured in decibels and is grouped in four basic ranges. Mild hearing loss Many hard of hearing have the mildest level of hearing loss and it quite often occurs with the progression of the age. People with mild hearing loss experience difficulties with sounds ranging from ...

Each part of the ear has an important role in providing sound information to the brain. Hearing loss is caused by damage to one or more parts of the outer, middle or inner ear.

There is a link between hearing loss and Alzheimers disease, according to a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins Medicine. Dr. Frank Lin and his team followed more than 600 people for nearly 12 years. The participants degree of hearing loss paralleled their risk of later developing dementia or Alzheimers disease. For each 10-decibel loss in hearing, the risk of dementia increased about 20 percent. In other words, the risk doubled with mild hearing loss, tripled with moderate hearing loss, and soared fivefold among those with severe hearing loss. Lin speculates that the brain is overstressed by trying to pick up what it is missing. By devoting more of its resources to hearing, the brain neglects other functions. Social isolation may contribute to a greater risk of age-related disorders as well, according to Dr. Lin. The unanswered question from his research is whether improved ...
Purpose. To examine how road users with different degree of hearing loss experience safety and mobility in transport situations, compared to road users with normal hearing.. Methods. A questionnaire study was conducted with participants recruited from the local branch of The Swedish hard of hearing society.

Description: This study examined the effectiveness of employing videoconferencing and Web-based instruction in the preparation of special education personnel. Due to the acute shortage of special education personnel, it was anticipated that the use of videoconferencing and online instruction would provide a convenient way for students to attend class without having to travel to the actual location of the educational site. Further, it was believed that this initiative would result in higher student enrollment in special education teacher certification programs, consequently leading to an increase of personnel in the field. Moreover, the increase in personnel would enhance the ability of educational institutions to address the dismal academic, social, and behavioral outcomes of students with disabilities. Information for the ...

Curriculum designs should make the General Education program more coherent, intentional, and cumulative.. At the 2014 Fall Faculty Workshop, Lee Knefelkamp pointed out that students often perceive general education as a "collecting of dots" experience rather than a "connecting the dots" experience. In a candid assessment of the undergraduate general education requirements at his own university, professor Mark Bauerlin framed it this way: "Lets be honest about how it appears to 19-year-olds. They see such an array [of general education courses] as merely a bunch of random, disconnected courses outside their major. The courses they finish dont cohere into a core or a common experience. Theyre just a bunch of heterogeneous hoops to pass through" (quoted in Gaston 2015, p. 12). While the current Common Curriculum is focused on course collecting, the new general ...
There is a shortage of speech-language pathologists (SLPs) in this country. This shortage is due, in part, to the limited number of openings in graduate programs and the increased need for SLPs as their scope of practice widens, the autism rate grows, and the population ages. Schools are feeling this shortage the most. There are several reasons school districts have a hard time attracting and retaining SLPs. This paper will offer possible solutions to attract more candidates to the field including expanding graduate school options. It will also address options to fill positions such as using teletherapy services or speech-language assistants. School speech-language pathologists (SLPs) are typically licensed by a health board in the state in which they are employed, are sometimes also licensed by their state s Department of Education, are usually certified by the American Speech-Language Hearing Association, and hold Master s degrees in communicative ...

The guiding assumption underlying Dominguez Hills General Education offerings is that they are courses for non-specialists, presenting subject matter related to the wider context of knowledge and stimulating interest in lifelong learning. Ordinarily, such courses are different from introductory lower division courses for a major, and at the upper division level are not courses used in a major. General Education courses present breadth, deal with representative concepts, and provide for some integration of these concepts with further study.. The General Education Program, which is divided into three components, requires 55-62 semester units: (A) 12-14 units of Basic Skills; (B-E) 34-36 units of lower division General Education divided among Natural Sciences and Quantitative Reasoning (10-12 units), Humanities (9 units), Social Sciences (12 units), and Lifelong Learning and ...

Utilizing her vast experience of working with profoundly intellectually disabled persons, Haslam draws out illustrations of non-communicable and pre-linguistic individuals unable to differentiate self. Those same individuals, however, show responsiveness in the presence of others, eliciting a dynamic of mutual response, and resulting in the cultivation of ongoing relationship. These scenarios give force to her development of anthropology based on Bubers idea; the existence of human being can only be defined in mutual relations and the pursuit of knowing God through [I-Thou] relational presence. For Haslam, this model is most relevant as it relies on relationships through the interplay of will and grace outside the control of self. As this model does not see the other as an object, it eliminates all self- serving acts and allows the focus to be on mutual helping and healing ...

Qatars Islamic Education textbook for grade 11 devotes an entire chapter to the topic of secularism and the dangers it represents. The book describes secularism as a negative phenomenon that originated in the West and was injected into the Islamic world by the colonialist powers in a bid to distance the Muslims from their religion and raise generations disconnected from Islam. The chapter lists the negative characteristics of secularism and its detrimental effects, and stresses that Islam views it as heresy.
As the reading difficulties experienced by students with emotional-behavioral disorders (EBD) receive more attention, the corresponding call for evidence-based practices has become more pronounced. We conducted a systematic review of comprehension and fluency interventions for middle and high school students with EBD served outside of the general education classroom in the years since the Individuals With Disabilities Education Improvement Act (2004). This literature synthesis represents a response to previous reviews to provide an updated state of the field regarding reading intervention research for students with EBD. The nine studies meeting inclusion criteria, all of which employed a single-subject design, contained a variety of intervention procedures and practices. Results indicated an increased amount of research involving middle and high school students with EBD. Effect sizes are reported, in addition to implications ...

Abstract: Children with autism spectrum disorder and other developmental disabilities typically have delays in their communication skills. It is important for teachers and other school personnel to have an understanding of the different verbal operants and how to use incidental teaching to teach children to emit mands, tacts, and intraverbal responses. The purpose of the study was to use a multiple-baseline across-participants design to evaluate behavior skills training with classroom coaching to train school personnel to use incidental teaching to teach verbal behavior. Six females who were currently enrolled in a practicum to become bachelors level or Masters level Special Education teachers participated. Trainees were provided with instructions on each verbal operant and observed the experimenter modeling how to use incidental teaching to arrange opportunities to teach a child with autism spectrum disorder the targeted verbal operant (mand, tact, or ...
Today is a victory for children with specific learning disabilities and their families! COPAA knows firsthand how families have been subjected to intimidating and discriminatory treatment as they have sought to include the proper terms of a childs condition as part of a special education evaluation, eligibility determination, or within a childs Individualized Education Program (IEP). We now have a valuable tool to assure these practices stop." Marshall continued, "The guidance from Assistant Secretary Yudin is unequivocal. It tells states they must never prohibit the use of the terms dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia and specifically says that such terms are meant to be used to help implement a truly individualized IEP and the specific accommodations, modifications or supports that a child may need to succeed in school. COPAA was proud to sign the letter that led to this outcome and looks forward to helping support an ...
Parents in Alaska who give birth to one of the over 8,000 children diagnosed with cerebral palsy each year may wish to consult with an Alaska cerebral palsy lawyer to discuss their options. The cost of caring for a child with cerebral palsy can be financially crippling for many families, and if its determined that medical malpractice was the cause of a childs condition, a lawyer who specializes in cerebral palsy lawsuits can tell a family if there is a strong case for a claim. There is currently no cure for cerebral palsy, and the cost of lifetime care for children with the condition can be prohibitively expensive. According to experts, the average cost of specialized care for a person with cerebral palsy is close to a million dollars. In Alaska and elsewhere, people with cerebral palsy need special medical treatment, prescription drugs, hospital stays and modifications to the familys home. Special education and therapeutic services are expensive, too, and many adults with ...

Quite often, children with myelomeningocele will need to have a series of operations throughout their childhood and school years. School programs should be flexible to accommodate these special needs.. Many children with myelomeningocele need training to learn to manage their bowel and bladder functions. Some require catheterization, or the insertion of a tube to permit passage of urine.. The courts have held that clean, intermittent catheterization is necessary to help the child benefit from and have access to special education and related services. A successful bladder management program can be incorporated into the regular school day. Many children learn to catheterize themselves at a very early age.. In some cases, children with spina bifida who also have a history of hydrocephalus experience learning problems. They may have difficulty with paying attention, expressing or understanding language, and grasping reading and math. Early intervention with children who ...
