Monitor every time the child would do this. * Participant – This would mean to monitor a child when they are within a group. * Non Participant – this would mean to monitor the child when they are working on their own with another member of staff. * Trail or Movement – This would be observing a child’s behaviour in the classroom * Target Child – Observing one child In my SEN PMLD class we also use other methods of keeping these accurate within the team we use checklists on the wall, (obviously confidential) for instance we all know that Joe Bloggs bites, so we have his name on a check list that has a tally chart next to his name, the team are aware what this means but if a parent or other person came in the would just see; Week Commencing 25/08/14 Name | Mon | Tue | Wed | Thur | Fri | Total | Joe Bloggs | // | // | //// | | / | 9 | Mary Smith | /// | / | | //// | ////// | 14 | Bob Frances | // | | / | | /// | 6
This article compares the effects of a worksheet condition and an iPad condition on math fluency and active academic engagement during a high school math class. Three students with significant behavioral and mental health needs engaged in independent work either completing problems on a worksheet or an iPad. I found this article to be interested because
It is useful in deciding whether the child is reaching expected milestones of development in different areas. The assessment framework is how children are assessed in school, for example, in my setting when a child reads, we write it in their planners. Standard measurements: School tests or cognitive aptitude tests that demonstrate a snapshot of children's academic ability or skill at retaining taught information and that might then be used to compare outcomes between children of the same age. Health programmes that might measure head circumference, weight, height, visual and auditory functioning. Educational psychologists may use reasoning tests to assess an intellectual age in contrast to a chronological age.
Clinical Assesment 1 Clinical Assessment 2 What other information would you like to learn during the interview with the family? What questions would you ask?

Children with learning disabilities or difficulties in social settings can often experience “otherness” in a classroom. As a teacher it would be my responsibility to notice if a student was being “othered”, to identify who is participating in the “othering” of the child, and assisting the child and classmates in recognizing the changes that might need to be made to overcome whatever the reasons are behind “othering”. Paying attention to the student’s social interactions during class and at recess time would allow me to be able to notice if a child is being “othered”. In the classroom, how do the majority of students react to each child as they actively participate in classroom discussions? If most of the students scoff, eye roll, or additionally demonstrate disrespectful behaviors it would be worthwhile to monitor other classroom interactions between students.
A study of computer-assisted learning examined the learning of “Blissymbols" by children. Blissymbols are pictographs (think of Egyptian hieroglyphs) that are sometimes used to help learning-impaired children communicate. The researcher designed two computer lessons that taught the same content using the same examples. One lesson required the children to interact with the material, while in the other the children controlled only the pace of the lesson. Call these two styles “Active” and “Passive.” Children were assigned at random to Active and Passive groups.
The ADA was designed to allow people with disabilities to contribute to society and one way of contributing is through employment. Employees are required to make reasonable accommodations for employees with disabilities but the term reasonable is a vague term. An employer with less than 100 employees has even a less of an obligation to adhere to the ADA and is not required to adhere to the Family Medical Leave Act. If a person with a disability needs a significant amount of time-off and works for an employer with less than
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.

They use a computer based career analysis program, which allows the student to answer questions based upon experiences and interests to help them identify possible career options. They also have a program specifically for eighth graders, that allows them to start a four year plan for high school, and of course the counselors use their computers for registration. Ms. Childs wants the counseling education programs to inform future counselors about the importance of a counselor and their role in the school, as well as prepare their students for the reality of their role as a school counselor. She feels that the future counselors need to take courses using different software programs dealing with scheduling, registration, test preparation, organization, and time management. Any kind of computer skills based course would be beneficial because that is what school counselors do majority of the
