Caula Rogers Eng-105 English Composition 1 03/30/2014 Dr. Victoria Smith Impact of ADHD on a Child’s Schooling Children with ADHD generally have trouble in school, only because school causes many trials for children with ADHD. ADHD is not a learning disorder; however it can cause children to have problems with learning. Furthermore, children with ADHD have an excessive rate of learning disorders and will have problems with other school-work like calculation and following a long with his/her teacher during direct instructional time. But with enduring and an efficient plan, the child will be capable of succeeding in the classroom. 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.
Avoiding all risks and challenge would result in a very timid adult lacking in many everyday skills and abilities. It would be very easy to respond to all risks to which children are exposed by not allowing them to explore or experiment. Children need to explore their environment – it is one of the ways in which they learn – but it needs to be a ‘safe’ environment where risk is controlled by adults. It is important that children are given the freedom to develop their skills, with adult support but not too much intervention. Understanding the stage of development a child is at and their individual needs can help you to provide the right amount of risk in activities, for example children under the age of 8 cannot safely judge the speed or distance of a car on the road, so a child under the age of 8 should never be allowed to cross the road alone.
Children are always full of energy and they often get tired of sitting quietly for a long time; this may have an effect on their attention span, making them distracted and inattentive. Teachers for early education classes should organize activities that allow physical involvement for children and also ones that need only minimal actions (Helm, 2008). These young students have huge imaginations that may often result for them to encounter difficulties in distinguishing the real world from the world they have created. Children love to be praised and they know what those praises are for, they try to be consistent and repeat what they have done to get the teacher’s positive attention and words of encouragement. Friendliness is another notable
We do not call this behavior challenging because it summons you to a duel or battle but because it is threatening, provocative, and stimulating, all at the same time. Another website was csefel.vanderbuilt.edu/documents/reading_cues.org, and it was just more less the understanding of why challenging behaviors happens with young children. And the last website that I went to was csefel.vanderbilt.edu/resources/family.htm. This website was more for the families to read and get more of a understand and it gave some resources. If I was to have a challenging child in my class then I would was to involve the parents or caregivers and let them be on the same page as I am.
Some parents ignore to teach their children when they were young. It cause many children don’t care their behavior and they will get the wrong worldview. I like this book because that is a good advice for children and parents, it can help parents teach their children keep a good behavior when they were young. How to listening to the other people, that is a serious problem for children, especially for parents. Now, more and more children don’t like to listen to the other people.
The author not only discussed the shortcomings of the research article, but she made valid points as to how the research was meaningful and significant. The impact of the article leaves readers with the sense that there needs to be a change in what our children are watching. The research study proved that even in as little as nine minutes children’s overall cognitive functioning decreases when watching fast paced shows. By watching these fast paced shows (compared to drawing or educational programs) children are being primed to be A.D.H.D like impulsive and are not being able to control their attention spans, solve problems, or handle delay of gratification and working memory dilemmas. From the results and the article, parents should be aware of the consequences that these fast paced programs may have on their
Children learn by trying out new experiences and making choices. But they do not have the skills and judgement always to make safe choices. Carers have the responsibility to I identify potential hazards in any situation and to judge when it is safe to allow a child to undertake an activity or make choice. Some children needs their freedom to explore risk even more then others. For example a disabled child may be restricted in play at home because of parental concern that the child could hurt themselves.
A tantrum will be ignored by the teachers but if a child is expressing negative behaviour such as hitting, they will then be told to stop in a firm voice (not shouting) Vygotsky - Adults should provide a play based curriculum and engage with children in play activities to extend their learning. Children also learn from their peers. There should be a balance between child-led and adult-led play. This is central to the Early Years Foundation Stage. * This theory is very accurate to everyday life in the nursery.
The Value of Play in a Preschool Curriculum ECE 351 Play & Learning for the Young Child Instructor: Ashford University August 8, 2011 Abstract Many parents still look at play as just the fun, and have not been able to see the value in what children are learning and developing as well. Leo F. Buscaglia has stated it well, “It is paradoxical that many educators and parents still differentiate between a time for learning and a time for play without seeing the vital connection between them.” When children are engaged in play in a content-rich environment, they develop their social and motor skills as well as beginning to make sense of the world around them (Maine Early Learning Guidelines, 2005). This helps children to build the important foundations needed to become learners with enthusiasm, and grow into healthy, responsible adults (Maine Early Learning Guidelines, 2005). In a preschool setting with a varied of play center choices to play in, preschool children can develop social and emotional, cognitive, physical, and language skills necessary for school readiness. This paper will discuss an example of how a child can learn through play in each of these areas of development.
“Engaging the child in an interactive experience, developing hand-eye- motor skills, giving the child a sense of accomplishment, keeping the child off the streets and just encouraging having fun are all judged by many parents to be valuable.”(Tapscott) This quote explains how parents value hand-eye-motor skills, and keeping kids off the streets as importance and video games help in accomplishing these ideas based by parents. Also playing video games strengthens manual dexterity, problem-solving abilities, perseverance, pattern recognition, hypothesis testing, estimating skills, inductive reasoning, resource
