ADHD negatively can affect a child’s social and emotional behavior and the ability to control them in a positive manner in a school environment. Children that have both ADD/ADHD are expressively immature. Some studies show children who have ADHD, especially those children that have expressive outbursts or violent tendencies; they have a hard time socializing with others. In school, if their classmates and teacher single them out, they feel self-conscious. Many children with disabilities usually need more structured and clearly amorphous surroundings, also behaviorally, than a general education classroom can offer.
The study also proved that reading problems in middle elementary students requires a multi step process. The research stated that no single measure effectively defines whether a student is at risk.

Family relations, academic challenges, health problems, playing sports, and social status have been identified as stressors in school-age population. Some of the reported stress symptoms are hunger, headaches, nervousness, tiredness, confusion and illness. This tool can be used by counselors, psychiatrists, and social workers in order to identify problems and encourage coping skills. The Schoolager’s coping strategies inventory is a 25-item self-report scale that assess strategies used by children ages 8-12 years in order to cope with situations mentioned. The process of answering the inventory can take 10-15 minutes.
His interest in children’s cognitive processes developed when he started to notice that children of similar ages made the same kinds of mistakes on test questions. After in depth research, Piaget developed the stages of cognitive development theory. This revolved around the idea that unlike adults, thinking and mental development of children changes qualitatively with age (Passer & Smith, 2013). In order to understand Piaget’s theory, it is important to understand its fundamental principles. The first, Piaget referred to using the term ‘schema’.
I will be discussing 5 disabilities that affect people intellectually. Intellectual disabilities are disabilities characterized by significant limitations both in intellectual functioning and in adaptive behavior which covers many everyday social and practical skills and originates before the age of 18. The main characteristics of the intellectually disabled are classed into 4 areas physical, mental, social, and emotional. Intellectual disabilities are like any other disability in that the degree of their ability to do school work and adapt to social settings vary from child to child. Children with this disability tend to have more delay in development of academic, social, and adaptive skills particularly in learning to read and learn basic math skills.

PSY481U Assignment 2 Theme 1: Learning and Behaviour Disorders Attention- Deficit Hyperactivity Disorders “Children with ADHD continue to pose a considerable challenge to their families and society at large” Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder associated with socially disruptive behaviours such as inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Cantwell (1996) explained that these behaviours may cause significant impairment and interference in numerous areas of a child’s normal development. Furthermore, according to Tutorial letter 101 for PSY481U (2010) children with ADHD also have a consequential impact on the lives of those surrounding the child. The focus of this essay will be a discussion on the challenges
Amelia White November 17, 2013 SPE-226 Crystal McCabe Educating Special Needs Students There are numerous types of disabilities a child may have that affect different areas; intellectual disability, autism, severe disabilities, and multiple disabilities are a few disabilities that affect learning.Children with disabilities can learn and are entitled to a free appropriate education. Disabled children being placed in general education classes allows them to interact and learn with their peers but it is important to remember that many times curricula for severely disabled individuals are home and personal skills. Severe or multiple disabilities children will require accommodations and modification to insure they obtain an appropriate education.

Introduction The Legal Framework for the category of Auditory Impairment consists of both deaf and hard of hearing. The Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act of 2004 (IDEIA), defines these terms separately. Hearing impairment is defined by IDEA as, “an impairment in hearing, whether permanent or fluctuating, that adversely affects a child’s educational performance”; and deafness is defined as “a hearing impairment that is so severe that the child is impaired in processing linguistic information through hearing, with or without amplification” (NICHCY, 2013). Characteristics of auditory impairments will depend on both the hearing loss and its severity. Students with auditory impairments may have limitations of communication and language skills, academic achievement, and social and emotional functioning.
