Neuropsychological sequelae in Kleine-Levin syndrome: case report. (1/38)

Kleine-Levin syndrome is characterized by periodic hypersomnia, hyperphagia, sexual disinhibitions and behavioral disturbances. The prognosis is generally benign, with normal cognitive and social functions after the episodes. We describe a typical case of Kleine-Levin syndrome associated with apparent academic decline, neuropsychological sequelae and personality alterations after the second episode of the illness. Further research in the natural history of Kleine-Levin syndrome is needed, for example, to determine whether early intervention would improve long-term prognosis.  (+info)

Learning disabilities: analysis of 69 children. (2/38)

With this article we intend to demonstrate the importance of evaluation and follow up of children with learning disabilities, through a multidisciplinary team. As well as to establish the need of intervention. We evaluate 69 children, from Aline Picheth Public School, in Curitiba, attending first or second grade of elementary school, through general and evolutionary neurological examination, pediatric checklist symptoms, and social, linguistic and psychological (WISC-III, Bender Infantile and WPPSI-figures) evaluation. The incidence was higher in boys (84,1%), familiar history of learning disabilities was found in 42%, and writing abnormalities in 56,5%. The most frequent diagnosis was attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, in 39,1%. With this program, we aimed to reduce the retention taxes and stress the importance of this evaluation, and, if necessary, multidisciplinary intervention in the cases of learning disabilities.  (+info)

An analysis of aversive stimuli in classroom demand contexts. (3/38)

Although recent research has identified numerous variables that can affect behavior maintained by negative reinforcement, questions remain concerning the potential aspects of the demand context that evoke problem behavior. To date, few studies have examined these questions within general education classrooms. The current study assessed the influence of social and task-difficulty variables on problem behavior maintained by negative reinforcement. Teachers in general education classrooms implemented three analyses to determine the influence of these variables on the problem behavior of 4 boys. Results are discussed in terms of response covariation within the demand context.  (+info)

The schizophrenia prodrome revisited: a neurodevelopmental perspective. (4/38)

Despite the widespread acceptance of the neurodevelopmental model of schizophrenia, its application to research concerned with the prodromal phase of illness is limited. Little recognition has been given to the concept of an enduring biological vulnerability to illness that may be responsive to early intervention. Rather, the focus of most prodromal studies is on emerging positive symptoms. The Recognition and Prevention (RAP) program follows the strategy of being equally concerned with the nonspecific symptoms reflecting the core of schizophrenia and those directly related to psychosis. Data were collected from 62 adolescents (mean age = 16.4 years) during the initial 3-year pilot phase of the RAP program (1998-2001). Subjects were divided into three clinical high-risk groups, characterized by (1) negative and nonspecific symptoms (e.g., social isolation, school failures), the earliest prodrome stage; (2) emerging attenuated positive symptoms of moderate intensity; and (3) severe attenuated (but subpsychotic) positive symptoms, considered most proximal to psychosis. Four risk factors, derived from the neurodevelopmental literature, were selected to reflect the vulnerability core: cognitive deficits, affective disturbances, social isolation, and school failure. All four domains were equally impaired across the three risk groups, supporting the presence of the underlying vulnerability core regardless of the magnitude of emerging positive symptoms. An observational pilot study was also conducted to identify the medications typically used to treat emerging positive symptoms. Antidepressants were used as frequently as antipsychotics to treat adolescents presenting with moderate attenuated positive symptoms. Regardless of type of medication, moderately symptomatic youngsters did quite well over the approximately 1-year followup period. By contrast, adolescents presenting with more severe (but nonpsychotic) attenuated symptoms were treated with antipsychotics, often in combination with other agents. Outcome for the more symptomatic youngsters was, however, more guarded, with nearly half (i.e., 47%) of the group converting to a schizophrenia spectrum psychotic disorder. Nonadherence to medication appeared to be a major risk factor in this group. We conclude that a neurodevelopmental model of schizophrenia is supported by our data and that a range of novel treatment strategies may be neuroprotective by directly affecting the disorder's vulnerability core.  (+info)

The Trail Making Test as an initial screening procedure for neuropsychological impairment in older children. (5/38)

This study was designed to explore the possibility of using a brief neuropsychological test for broad-band initial screening of children with academic problems who might have neuropsychological deficits that should be more completely evaluated. Part B of the Trail Making Test was selected as the instrument for investigation. Three groups of children, aged 9-14 years, were composed for this study to represent (1) children with diagnosed brain damage or disease, (2) children who were medically normal but who were of serious concern to parents and teachers because of inadequate academic progress, and (3) a normal control group. The Brain-Damaged group required more than three times the number of seconds needed by the controls to complete the test, and the group with academic difficulties required more than twice the time of the controls. Using the limits set by the distributions of the Brain-Damaged and control groups, it was possible to identify a cutoff point that may be used for preliminary identification of children with academic difficulties who might benefit from further neuropsychological evaluation. The results of this study stand in need of cross-validation and, obviously, much additional outcome research is necessary to evaluate the efficacy and validity of the findings for screening purposes.  (+info)

Use of the Progressive Figures Test in evaluating brain-damaged children, children with academic problems, and normal controls. (6/38)

This study explores the use of the Progressive Figures Test as an instrument for broad initial screening of children in the 6- through 8-year age range with respect to the possible need for more definitive neuropsychological evaluation. Considering earlier results obtained in comparison of brain-damaged and control children [Clinical Neuropsychology: Current Applications, Hemisphere Publishing Corp., Washington, DC, 1974, p. 53; Proceedings of the Conference on Minimal Brain Dysfunction, New York Academy of Sciences, New York, 1973, p. 65], the Progressive Figures Test seemed potentially useful as a first step in determining whether a comprehensive neuropsychological evaluation is indicated. In this investigation, three groups were studied: (1) children with definitive evidence of brain damage or disease who, when compared with normal controls, help to establish the limits of neuropsychological functioning, (2) a group of children who had normal neurological examinations but also had academic problems of significant concern to both parents and teachers, and (3) a normal control group. Statistically significant differences were present in comparing each pair of groups, with the brain-damaged children performing most poorly and the controls performing best. Score distributions for the three groups make it possible to identify a score-range that represented a borderline or "gray" area and to suggest a cutting score that identified children whose academic problems might have a neurological basis and for whom additional neuropsychological evaluation appeared to be indicated.  (+info)

Neuropsychological predictors of academic underachievement in pediatric epilepsy: moderating roles of demographic, seizure, and psychosocial variables. (7/38)

PURPOSE: Academic underachievement is common in pediatric epilepsy. Attempts to identify seizure and psychosocial risk factors for underachievement have yielded inconsistent findings, raising the possibility that seizure and psychosocial variables play a complex role in combination with other variables such as neuropsychological functioning. This study cross-validated a neuropsychological measurement model for childhood epilepsy, examined the relation between neuropsychological functioning and academic achievement, and tested the degree to which demographic, seizure, and psychosocial variables moderate that relation. METHODS: Children with chronic epilepsy (N = 173; ages 8 to 15 years; 49% girls; 91% white/non-Hispanic; 79% one seizure type; 79% taking one medication; 69% with active seizures) completed a comprehensive neuropsychological battery. Children diagnosed with mental retardation were excluded. RESULTS: Structural equation modeling identified a three-factor measurement model of neuropsychological function: Verbal/Memory/Executive (VME), Rapid Naming/Working Memory (RN/WM), and Psychomotor (PM). VME and RN/WM were strongly related to reading, math, and writing; PM predicted writing only. Family environment moderated the impact of neuropsychological deficits on writing (p < or = 0.01) and possibly for reading (p = 0.05); neuropsychological deficits had a smaller impact on achievement for children in supportive/organized homes compared with children in unsupportive/disorganized homes. CONCLUSIONS: These findings lend partial support for our theoretical model showing direct effects of neuropsychological function on achievement and the moderating role of family factors. This study suggests that a subgroup of children with epilepsy (those who have not only neuropsychological deficits but also disorganized/unsupportive home environments) are particularly at risk for adverse academic outcomes. Implications for intervention are discussed.  (+info)

The classwide peer tutoring program: implementation factors moderating students' achievement. (8/38)

We conducted a study designed to assess implementation of the classwide peer tutoring program and the relationship between implementation variation and student outcome. A clinical replication design was used. Five volunteer elementary teachers were trained to implement the program; their implementation was monitored for 19 consecutive weeks during 1 school year. Overall, the results indicated that specific variations in program implementation were associated with students' responses to treatment. It was also demonstrated that different teachers' applications of the program produced differential levels of student outcome. Implementation factors related to lower spelling achievement were (a) reduced opportunities to receive program sessions, (b) reduced probabilities of students' participation in program opportunities, (c) too many students assigned unchallenging spelling words, and (d) reduced rates of daily point earning reflecting lower levels of spelling practice during tutoring sessions. The implications of these findings and methods of preventing these implementation problems are discussed in the context of quality assurance and social validity.  (+info)

Summary. In this study the relationship between underachievement in anatomy and spatial ability (both geometrical and anatomical) is investigated.. Subjects were second-year medical students at the University of Cape Town from 1980 to 1983. Geometrical spatial ability was measured using a battery of three-dimensional exercises involving the sectioning, joining, translation, rotation and visualization of simple solid objects. Anatomical spatial achievement was measured using university practical examination scores of April, June and October, as well as students scores on those items in the April, June and November MCQ anatomy examinations which were classified as spatially three-dimensional by a panel of lecturers in anatomy. Non-spatial anatomical achievement was measured using the university essay examination scores of April, June and November, together with students scores on the non-spatial items in the MCQ anatomy examinations.. From 1980 to 1983 it was found that students who failed the ...

The study identified that Somali learners, Eastern European boys, White/Black Caribbean boys, Gypsy/Roma and Traveller learners are below average at each Key Stage. It also found that White British learners eligible for free school meals also represent a significant "at risk of underachievement" group.. Achievement and underachievement was found to be the result of multiple factors including poverty, the level of young peoples aspirations and those of their parents, teachers expectations and the quality of engagement between schools and parents.. The research found a correlation between levels of deprivation and low educational achievement which affects all groups to a greater or lesser degree and this was a bigger factor than ethnic group differences.. It found that all BME groups would be supported better if there were more credible and positive mentors for them. A lack of positive role models has also been identified as a factor in the underachievement of White British learners who are ...
This was written for a PGCE assessment piece, but turned out quite conversational. :smokin:. Three or four hundred words on this subject is a drop in the ocean; it has become a favourite topic in parent groups, news columns and pubs since it encompasses so many statistics and variables.. In Wales, the gap between genders appears, on the surface of things, to have grown at some stage - in 1998, there was a gap of 9% between those obtaining 5 A*-C grades at GCSE, rising to 10% in 1999 and 11% in 2000. But how useful are these paper figures? How useful are the assessment procedures?. Recent work by Cardiff University researchers points to the fact that figures for English skew the statistics (the discrepancy in Science and Mathematics being far less), and that argue that current disparities are in fact little different to those twenty-five years ago. As a teacher of English, this is still concerning to me; as Alan Smithers of Liverpool University states, "it is the language of thought as well as ...

A different episode focuses on each, with the only common thread the presence of Asako, who flits in and out, looking increasingly deathly, as if she is an avenging angel. Each of the four women has internalised her trauma in a way that de-feminises them - Sae (Yû Aoi) has never menstruated once in her life, convinced it is punishment for her failure to remember the killers face.

Right, thats out the way. On Saturday the Telegraph published snippets of an interview with Tristram under the headline Labour: White boys underachievement linked to mass migration. Now, of course, there is an issue with white boys underachievement at school - though, forgive my contrarian nature, few outside the womens movement were that bothered about white girls underperformance until the terms of the problem were reversed. But anyway. Its a complex problem but not an insurmountable one by any means. And, unfortunately, immigration is a hot topic too. Even if we dont wake up to our Romanian and Bulgarian overlords tomorrow, the UK can look forward to being swamped by 27 million new Britons by the end of the month. And if the pint-chewing and cigarette-drinking Nigel Farage gets his way, you can add tens of thousands of Syrian refugees to that total.

Our data provide evidence that physical activity and obesity mediate the association between childhood motor function and adolescents academic achievement. Compromised motor function in childhood may serve as a significant underlying factor for the effects of obesity and physical inactivity on academic underachievement, which has recently attracted attention as a growing global education and public health concern (4). Poor motor activity in the early school years can contribute to setting the child on a negative developmental trajectory.. There is a growing body of literature demonstrating that lifestyle factors such as excess sedentary behavior and an unhealthy diet may compromise childrens cognitive and academic performance (4, 5). Our results partly support previous findings indicating that overweight and obesity (19, 20), especially overconsumption of energy (11, 21) and excess body fat content (22), are adversely linked to cognitive and academic performance in children and youths.

Some say that the public schools are so awful that there is huge room for improvement in academic performance just by improving education. There are two problems with that position. The first is that the numbers used to indict the public schools are missing a crucial component. For example, in the 2005 round of the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), 36% of all fourth-graders were below the NAEPs "basic achievement" score in reading. It sounds like a terrible record. But we know from the mathematics of the normal distribution that 36% of fourth-graders also have IQs lower than 95. ...To say that even a perfect education system is not going to make much difference in the performance of children in the lower half of the distribution understandably grates. But the easy retorts do not work. Its no use coming up with the example of a child who was getting Ds in school, met an inspiring teacher, and went on to become an astrophysicist. That is an underachievement story, not the story ...
Pupil Premium is an allocation of funding provided to schools to support children who may be vulnerable to underachievement, also known as Disadvantaged. The Grant includes pupils on the annual census known to have been eligible for free school meals in any of the previous six years, as well as those eligible at the time of the census, such as Looked After or Adopted. All schools are required to report on the amount of funding and how this is being used. In our school, this grant is most effectively spent on supporting childrens learning in the classroom by providing quality first teaching, curriculum support, targeted intervention, engagement and enrichment activities, pastoral support and social and behavioural intervention. As with all children, to ensure maximum impact the needs of children entitled to the Pupil Premium are clearly identified, steps are taken to meet their individual needs and their progress is closely monitored through school. Where small group and individual support is ...
Muslim immigrant children fare poorly in almost all aspects of schooling and well-being. Even those who came to the West as volunteer immigrants, still face the same hurdles due to their immigration status. The differences in the school system such as curriculum, teaching approach, and assessment, as well as the kind of school are all important factors contributing to discrimination, harassment, and racism in schools. These new experiences often create confusion and frustration as the children struggle to understand the new situation. As a result, some children feel depressed and uninterested in school, which may lead them to be at risk for academic disengagement. The cultural-ecological theory of minority schooling posits that some educators position these students by placing them in low-stream tracks (Ogbu, 2003). Ogbu further asserts that current educational discourse continues to attribute Muslim immigrant students underachievement primarily to school and societal factors (e.g., tracking, ...
In the U.S. approximately 4 to 5% of school-age children show significant degrees of underachievement academically each year. Recent studies done in the National Cooperative Growth Study (NCGS) supported by Genentech, Inc., show that short children entering growth hormone treatment have a much higher rate of learning problems and social problems. About 18 to 20% have a learning skill deficit in arithmetic, spelling or reading. Another group has problems in social interactions and show behavioral problems such as shyness, withdrawal or attention deficits. These problems appear in children with different growth diagnoses and therefore cannot be due entirely to the social effects of being short. Parents should carefully consider how they will approach managing these potential difficulties.. There are several ways to help short children cope with their problems.. First, soon after diagnosis you should ask your pediatric endocrinologist or pediatrician who they would recommend to carry out ...
The Pupil Premium is an allocation of additional funding provided to schools to support specific groups of children who are vulnerable to possible underachievement. These include pupils who are entitled to free school meals (FSM), those looked after by the local authority and children of armed service personnel. The intended effect of this funding is to accelerate progress and raise attainment.. It is for schools to decide how the Pupil Premium, allocated to schools, is spent since they are best placed to assess what additional provision should be made for the individual pupils within their responsibility. We reserve the right to allocate the Pupil Premium funding to support any pupil or groups of pupils the school has legitimately identified as being socially disadvantaged.

Its seen as uncool to be working hard. Also, there is often a fear that if you admit to working hard then do poorly then this somehow proves that youre not smart. A lot of talented students develop terrible habits as a way of avoiding this fear. My advice to overcome this culture is "keep it yourself."

Diseth, Trond H (2005). Dissociation in children and adolescents as reaction to trauma � an overview of conceptual issues and neurobiological factors. Nordic Journal of Psychiatry. ISSN 0803-9488. 59(2), s 79- 91 Vis sammendrag The discovery of trauma as an aetiological factor in mental dissociation is more than a century old, but neurobiological research in the last decade has started to clarify a neurobiological basis that may shed light on the complex symptomatology observed in traumatized children. Dysfunctional stress responses, emotional-based style of functioning, hyperarousal, anxiety, irritability, impulsivity, disengaged attention and educational underachievement may thus begin to be better understood. The aim of this overview is to give an update on the concept of dissociation and the links to new neurobiological findings, hopefully to reduce unawareness, wrong diagnostics or even neglect of dissociative symptomatology by clinicians in child and adolescent psychiatry in the Nordic ...

Its hard enough to deal with this kind of anxiety as an adult, but as an adolescent, anxiety can lead to depression, substance abuse, suicidal behavior and educational underachievement.
As slackers go, he sets new depths for underachievement. Pressing thirty and a dilletante dishwasher.....I suppose he looks upon his confusion and alienation as a form of idealism, as a way of opting out of the system. I wonder how long he can keep deluding himself. Apparently with a good vocabulary and education and the right family connections, you can keep up the pretense for quite a while......His screed seems more than a little disturbed. His life is full of free form resentments and diffuse angers which he is trying to make sense of. He is politicizing his mental illness.....Hes not the kind of guy I would want obsessing about me. Someone who loves him should get him help. ...
Nearly nine months have passed since the last Ebola patient was declared free of the disease in West Africa. Yet one body - the World Health Organization - is still ailing, stung by criticism that it responded slowly to that local and global emergency.. Despite encouraging signs that it learned valuable lessons from the Ebola outbreak, faith in the WHO hasnt yet fully returned. The organization has been chronically underfunded for years, and its outdated structure has resisted reform over many decades. This has led to a vicious spiral of underachievement.. The WHO needs to lead on global health - and its member states must allow it to do so. But its problems are undermining its position as the global leader responsible for moving the world toward a better, healthier future.. This week, the WHO will announce the finalists for the director-general post. He or she will take over its public health, strategic, and political leadership on July 1, 2017. This offers the organization a real chance to ...
We have separation at the top of the NFL: Atlanta, Houston, San Francisco, Chicago and the New York Giants.. We have depression at the bottom: Jacksonville, Carolina, Cleveland and Kansas City.. Nearing the halfway mark of the season, we also have a muddle in the middle. Playoff races could be wide open into late December, but not for some teams that already have reached desperation time.. Mark down the Cowboys, Eagles, Titans, Bengals, Chargers, Saints and Lions in that category. All of them had winning or .500 records in 2011, and each of them entered the season with designs on playoff berths.. Now, all of them appear to be outsiders, plagued by inconsistency and underachievement, questionable decision making and, at least in Dallas, Philadelphia and San Diego, uncertain futures for the coaching staffs.. Nowhere is the disappointment thus far more pronounced than in the NFC East, where the Giants have a 2 1/2-game edge over the Cowboys and Eagles.. Things looked so bright for Dallas when it ...

MILWAUKEE -- There have been stretches of underachievement, a barrage of injuries and big asks of new contributors. Yet the St. Louis Cardinals enter September having navigated it all right back to familiar spot. The three-time defending National League Central champs arent exactly where they hoped to be. Another division title is all but out of reach. But as the Cubs cruise toward October, the Cardinals have put themselves in position to join them there again.
Air pollution from industrial sources near Michigan public schools jeopardizes childrens health and academic success, according to a new study from University of Michigan researchers.
At first, it was somewhat surprising to find that in the latter years of high school, cramming tended to be followed by days with more academic problems," said Gillen-ONeel, who works with Fuligni and was the studys first author. "But then it made sense once we examined extra studying in the context of sleep. Although we expected that cramming might not be as effective as students think, our results showed that extra time spent studying cut into sleep. And its this reduced sleep that accounts for the increase in academic problems that occurs after days of increased studying ...
In Term 1 (median 75%), where the friendfeed contributions contribute 30% of the module marks, there is a strong negative skew, but in Term 2 (median 40%) we see more of a bimodal pattern, where the large number of high marks is moderated by a sizable number of students who do not participate in the friendfeed exercise. This occurs for a number of reasons. In some cases, students are having academic problems across the board, whereas a proportion take the decision to incur a 20% mark penalty in order not to participate. The difference between the two modules is highly significant (Wilcoxon rank sum test, p ,0.001 ...
More than 1 million California children and youth have a need for health care services of a type or amount beyond that required by children generally. Their ongoing health problems-physical, behavioral, or developmental-can affect their ability to function and participate in important educational and social activities. In some cases their health problems can shorten their lives (1). Medical care for children with special health care needs (CSHCN) is often complicated by the co-occurrence of social, emotional, and academic problems (1, 2). Because of the higher caregiving burdens, families of CSHCN tend to experience more stress and difficulties with employment and finances than other families (1, 2 ...

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. ...

Students have questioned the importance of general education courses since the inception of prerequisites. So, what exactly are general education courses? And why do they matter?. What is a general education course?. General education courses are required courses a student must take before they begin their major field of study or along with classes within their major. College algebra, English composition, general psychology, history, government and sociology are just a few courses that may be "required" in order to complete an associates or bachelors degree.. Why are general education courses necessary?. College and university accreditation requires all undergraduate degree programs include general education courses in order to maintain accreditation. These courses also help ensure a broad background in various disciplines and help academically prepare a student to pursue additional education. In addition, general education courses help students begin to think critically about the world around ...
Students with special needs will not be discriminated against on the basis of sex, handicap, race, color, national origin, or lack of English skills. Reasonable accommodation must be available for student placement. Parents, community members, and others can refer children for possible Special Education services if the child is suspected of having a learning disability or any handicapping condition. Special Education services are considered only after the resources of the regular program have been considered and utilized where appropriate. Decisions regarding program placement and individual educational objectives for students requiring any type of Special Education services are made with the parents active participation and authorization.. Special Education programs are available for children with identified learning disabilities, which include language disorders. Other disabilities are emotional disorders, orthopedic, visual or hearing impairments, mental retardation, autism, and ...
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 education program should be focused on making connections.. In the literature on reform, it is widely argued that a general ...
Each year, 5 percent to 10 percent of American students are retained at the same grade level, according to background information in the article. One in 10 students age 16 to 19 have repeated a grade. "Some of these students may require special education services at the time they are retained, in subsequent years or both," the authors write. "One approach to supporting a child with low academic achievement is the provision of special education services, as indicated in an Individualized Education Program (IEP). An IEP is a legally binding document describing a childs special education services and is developed after the child has undergone a special evaluation and has been determined eligible for services." ...

To facilitate the equal participation of pupils with disabilities in inclusive education, assessments and supports for them should be conducted based on an interactive approach between the medical and social models of disability. To achieve this goal, South Korea recently established a new law offering holistic support for pupils with disabilities-that is, on both the individual and environmental levels. However, in comparison with the comprehensive support provided by special education services, the assessments required for children to be eligible for special education services still rely on diagnostic evaluations in the medical model. This discrepancy between diagnostic evaluations (medical model) and special education services (interactive model) has hindered effective inclusive education to encourage the full participation of pupils with disabilities in South Korea.. The International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health for Children and Youth (ICF-CY) has been recommended as ...
InTeaching Students with Moderate to Severe Disabilities, we introduce preservice educators to classroom and community-based curricular strategies and materials for teaching preschool, elementary, and secondary students with moderate to severe disabilities. We describe the underlying structure and process for developing and implementing applied curricula and show you how applied curricula can support learning in the general education classroom, the school, and the community. We also teach you how to level materials and activities to provide the instructional support that allows students with moderate to severe disabilities and their non-disabled peers to participate together in those inclusive learning environments. The present emphasis on instruction for skill development through adaptation in the general education classroom has replaced the 1980s focus on segregated classes that offered a functional community-based curriculum for students with moderate to severe disabilities. Because we ...

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 Self-Development (3 units), and (F) 9 units of upper division Integrative Studies. In addition, students must take a course ...

Special education is the "catch-all" term that encompasses the specialized services that schools provide for disabled students. This report provides a comprehensive review of special education-conveying information on applicable laws, affected students, services, funding, and student outcomes. Public Schools Must Provide Special Support for Disabled Students. Federal law requires schools to provide "specially defined instruction, and related services, at no cost to parents, to meet the unique needs of a child with a disability." The law requires schools to provide disabled students with these special supports from age 3 until age 22, or until they graduate from high school, whichever happens first. These services are in addition to what a nondisabled student receives. About One in Ten California Students Receives Special Education Services.

The purpose of this study is to longitudinally examine neurobehavioral functioning outcomes and use of special education services in brain tumor and CNS tumor patients treated with proton radiation at MGH. Furthermore, we seek to correlate neurobehavioral data with pertinent clinical information. We anticipate better neurobehavioral functioning to be associated with use of protons (vs. photons, as reported in the literature). We also anticipate the need and utilization of special education services to be lower in brain and CNS tumor patients treated with protons (vs. photons, as reported in the literature). Lastly, we anticipate greater neurobehavioral deficits in patients whose proton radiation treatment involved the craniospinal axis compared to those who received proton radiation to the involved field ...

If your child suffers from ADHD, the school he attends is legally obligated to put him into the least restrictive environment (LRE). This environment is different for every child, but it should be the environment that is as similar to the general education classroom as possible. This means that, if you want your child educated in the general education setting, you are likely entitled to have him placed in this setting. The only way your childs school can insist that he be placed in a specialized classroom, or school as a whole, is if they can prove that he cant be educated in the general setting.. ...

I believe there is no safe level of glyphosate in our food. We are living in an environment surrounded by toxins. I am a special education teacher and see first hand the declining health and increasing needs of students over the past 10 years. As I have been learning about glyphosate as well as other attacks on our health through food, water, air, and vaccines it deeply saddens me to think of what is in store for our future generation. I work in a small school of just two classrooms per grade. We practice inclusion where students are integrated in the general education classroom.
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 and recommendations for school-based practitioners and

Abstract. Curriculum-based measurement of oral reading fluency (CBM-R) is an established procedure used to index the level and trend of student growth. A substantial literature base exists regarding best practices in the administration and interpretation of CBM-R; however, research has yet to adequately address the potential influence of measurement error. This study extends results of Hintze and Christ (2004) by incorporating research-based estimates of the standard error of the estimate (SEE) to generate likely magnitudes for the standard error of the slope (SEb)across a variety of progress monitoring durations and measurement conditions.Fourteen progress monitoring durations (2-15 weeks) and nine levels of SEE (2, 4,6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18) were used to derive SEb. The outcomes are discussed in relation to assessment practices, such as selecting optimal progress monitoring durations to reduce measurement error. Implications and limitations are discussed ...

Before 1975, only one in five children with disabilities attended public school. Federal legislation changed that. With more than 6 million children receiving special education services, educators, parents, and providers face many challenges on the road to improving outcomes-and improving lives-for students with disabilities. Our Work AIR conducts federal, state, and local projects designed to improve outcomes for students with disabilities and their families. We offer training and technical assistance support for implementing evidence-based practices in each of the 50 states and ten U.S. territories, as well as in hundreds of local school districts.

You have submitted data for this indicator through the Special Education Events template in the chain that begins with an Event Type Code EI01 (initial referral from Early Intervention to the CPSE).. Your districts report indicates that XX.X percent of children referred by the Part C, EI Program prior to age 3, who were found to be eligible for Part B, preschool special education programs and services had their IEPs developed and implemented prior to their third birthdays or in compliance with timelines established in State law. Data used to compute your compliance rate are provided below. ...
began in preschool and continued through high school graduation, a span of fifteen years. Over these years we met many other parents of children receiving special education services. We listened to their stories and heard many themes emerge that corresponded with our own observations. As a result of this experience, we realized that every single year of a childs education matters and that parents are the only constant advocates their child will have during these years. It is an enormous responsibility, but it can be an ultimately rewarding one.. One lesson our experience taught us is that the more parents know about special education, the more effective they can be as advocates for their children. Learning how special education works takes persistence because, like an iceberg, most of it exists below the surface of what parents can initially see. We have heard stories of school districts that are reasonable to deal with, but like us, you may encounter problems that are preventing your child ...
Intervention and Referral Services (I&RS) are the primary way in which general education teachers or specialists can assist a student who is at risk for school problems within the general education environment. I&RS programs are not intended to replace traditional methods or resources for helping students to function effectively in school. Rather, they exist to focus on particular student problems using available resources within the general education environment.. The purposes of the I&RS are: to identify students in need and then plan and provide appropriate interventions for those students within the general education setting; to identify the responsibilities of building staff who participate in the planning and provision of intervention and referral services; to actively involve parents/guardians in the development and implementation of I&RS plans; to review and assess the effectiveness of the services provided in achieving the outcomes identified in the intervention and referral plan; to ...

can be Granted by the BSEA, the bar to continuation is set low. There need only be a plausible allegation that a students special education services may be made appropriate, or may be rendered inappropriate, by the action or inaction of a public agency that owes a duty to that student. In Re: Lexington Public Schools , 19 MSER 18 (2013). While it is true, as DMH points out, that the bulk of the assertions and facts alleged in the Parents Hearing Request concern the residential services provided by DMH to Rosalee, the Hearing Request also specifically references claims that Rosalee is not receiving and will not receive a free appropriate public education through the IEP offered by Quincy. See e.g.: Hearing Request p.2 FN 1. Reading the Hearing Request as a whole, the Parents are clearly seeking an "integrated, or at least tightly coordinated, residential placement" (Hearing Request p.5) as opposed to the day placement designated on the current, now rejected, IEP developed by Quincy.

John H. Kranzler, Cindi G. Flores, and Maria Coady. pp. 431-446. Abstract. Flanagan, Ortiz, and Alfonso (2007) recently developed the Culture- Language Interpretive Matrices (C-LIMs) for the cognitive assessment of children and youth from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds. To examine the utility of this new approach, we administered the Woodcock-Johnson Tests of Cognitive Abilities to a sample of students receiving English as a second language services in public school settings who had not been referred for special education services. Results of within-subjects analyses of the predicted effects of linguistic demand and of cultural loading on subtest scores in the C-LIM were nonsignificant. Although a statistically significant (decreasing) trend was observed for the effect of linguistic demand and cultural loading combined, post hoc analyses revealed that this finding was attributable to a significantly higher score on one subtest and did not reflect significant differences among ...

This diagnosis does not change our current treatment plans of speech, OT, PT, special education services. It does mean that she will continue to make improvements in these areas, but we can expect them to be slow. Children with CdLS have communication problems and often do not talk or talk very little. This, along with the fact that those with cochlear implants take some time to learn about sound will also slow Marias speech progress down. What impacts us the most is that we will be taking Maria to even more medical specialists. Children with CdLS often have GI problems, which causes children to sometimes be self-injurous. We attributed all of Marias scratching, biting, and pinching to her implants, but these behaviors are present in children without hearing difficulties. For more information on CdLS you can visit the following website, but please remember that Maria most likely has a mild form of it. The webiste is: www.cdlsusa.org ...

Annually a lot of students from all over the world face academic problems in writing college term papers of any complexity. It occurs due to many reasons among which are: poor term paper writing skills, time shortage, knowledge deficiency how to write a college term paper or just common student laziness. Academic college term paper writing requires from them a lot of time, diligence and persistence to write a good college term paper and to submit it strictly on time. For these reasons most of students are trying to find someone to help them in writing a college paper for midterm exams. But where can they find the best online college term paper?

Amongst the rhodospin-like G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), the glycoprotein hormone receptors display a bipartite structure which parallels a functional dichotomy: a large ectodomain with leucine-riche repeats is responsible for binding of the hormones, while a serpentine domain with seven transmembrane alpha helices resembling rhodopsin transmits the activation signal to the Gsa protein. The mechanisms implicated in the intramolecular transduction of the activation signal, from the hormone-bound ectodomain to the serpentine domain remain unknown. This is not a purely academic problem, as understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved might increase our knowledge, and hence our therapeutic strategies, of the pathophysiology of Graves- disease.. The TSH receptor is peculiar, among the glycoprotein hormone receptors, as it displays readily measurable basal activity, when expressed by transfection in any cell type. The physiological significance of this characteristic, if any, remains ...

October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month, which means it is time to recognize children, adolescents and adults with learning disabilities -- and the educators who serve them. The month is celebrated to bring attention to individuals that have disabilities like dyslexia, dyscalculia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In 1985, the observation was introduced as a proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. Since then, the month has been used by organizations, such as the National Center for Learning Disabilities and the Learning Disabilities Association of America, to educate the public about those with learning disabilities. According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, there are 15 million people in the United States with learning disabilities. One of the biggest challenges faced by individuals with learning disabilities is the overall lack of acceptance by society. This month is an excellent time for people to pay more attention to people with learning disabilities. ...
Reading comprehension is a significant concern for adolescents with learning disabilities (LD), particularly in secondary schools in the United States (US) where content is taught primarily through textbooks. Surprisingly little is known about the actual reading instruction for students with LD in secondary classrooms. Thus, the purpose of this study was to examine the reading comprehension instruction in US secondary special education classrooms. Eight special education teachers in urban high schools were observed and interviewed. Findings showed that teachers implemented a number of reading comprehension practices, not all were considered

Health underachievement and overachievement in English local authorities | Journal of Epidemiology & Community HealthHealth underachievement and overachievement in English local authorities | Journal of Epidemiology & Community Health

Objective: To identify English local authorities that "overachieve" and "underachieve" in health terms, given their level of deprivation, sociodemographic context, and region.. Design: Cross sectional study using data from the 1991 UK census and mortality data from 2000-2.. Setting: England.. Participants: 354 local authorities (total population 49 558 000).. Main outcome measures: Life expectancy. Residual life expectancy after regression analysis.. Results: In general, the more materially deprived the population of a local authority was in 1991, the lower its life expectancy a decade later, with men being more sensitive to the effects of deprivation than women. Many local authorities, however, did not follow this general trend, and these shared common characteristics. Mining, Manufacturing and Industry, and Urban Fringe authorities collectively had lower life expectancies than predicted by their level of deprivation, as did authorities located in the north west.

Eide Neurolearning Blog: Sensory Processing and School UnderachievementEide Neurolearning Blog: Sensory Processing and School Underachievement

Sensory processing disorders are probably among the most common reasons children underachieve in school, although they are often not formally recognized because of the lack of a definitive diagnostic standard like a blood test or physical sign, and fluctuations and in behaviors that might be seen. In truth, sensory processing behaviors result from a wide range of causes, from visual or auditory problems, delayed (like premature birth) or abnormal development (genetic diseases), from inherited family conditions, or autism spectrum disorders. In the last few years, more progress has been made on understanding understanding how sensory processing behaviors may arise, but clinical professionals and teachers may still be most familiar with severe aversive fight-or-flight reactions or environmental sensitivities. But sensory processing difficulties contribute to much more. In fact, understanding more about the effects of SPD on school performance will help more parents and teachers know how to help ...

The Pleasures of Underachievement: Two Asian FilmsThe Pleasures of Underachievement: Two Asian Films

If a recourse to non-linearity gives Anocha some wriggle-room with her very ordinary subject matter, she doubles the formal breaches with scenes that look like a very lo-fi version of the cosmic sequences in Malicks later, overblown, Palme dOr winner. While Malick overreaches grossly with a biological history that is far more mundane that the domestic drama at the heart of his film, Anocha is more cautious, and more coy. Her abstract scenes are explained by their being filmed on a trip by Pun and Somjai to a planetarium, even though she does allow herself more formal flourishes in the films closing moments. These, depending on your point of view, appear either tacked on or a shrewd underpinning of the workaday tale we have just witnessed. One thing you can say though is that, Mundane History, while being a relatively conventional arthouse film, is experimental in the truest sense of the word in that its director takes risks with her narrative. If it works, well and good; if it doesnt, the ...
