Autistic children are easily upset and prone to over react, even the slightest change in their routine may invite a tantrum (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 2010). Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), is a fairly common problem in the schools today. Children with ADHD most commonly have suffer from inattention and are easily distracted. These children would also suffer from impulsive behaviors. When it is time to be quiet the children with ADHD are hyper-active and therefore, find it difficult to set still.
It can cause a long term effect of bad decisions in both the parents and children. Those bad decisions can cause one to fail in life, hang around the wrong crowd, and possibly be put in jail. A proper education can help a parent teach their child how to properly conduct themselves as an adult, make good decisions, and pass on what they learned as a child to their children. Poor priorities and lack of organization is the second of many factors that can lead to poor parenting. Poor organization can cause the parent to put other unimportant things in front of their child that should not be put first such as a significant other or material possessions.
Trauma Informed Care in Schools A system that would benefit greatly from the Trauma Informed Care approach is a school system. My reasoning for this is that when children are experiencing trauma whether it be from the past or a current situation, often times they struggle to find ways to cope positively with these negative feelings. And because they have trouble finding a positive outlet they tend to act out, whether that be involving themselves in harmful activities, or being violent towards themselves or others. It is important for staff members in a school setting to recognize some of the symptoms of someone that is going through trauma. If a student is acting out in class, can the adult assume the child is just acting out?
. The value of using functional assessment information to develop effective behavioral interventions has been demonstrated, especially with students who have emotional and behavioral disorders yet who have normal cognitive abilities (Hagan, Lewis-Palmer, & Sugai, 1998). Not every student that begins school is ready to learn. Some children cause so much disruption within the class that it distracts other students that are ready and willing to learn to lose focus and not obtain the lesson that they are there to learn. Some students just are not mentally prepared for the classroom whether it be because they struggle with social or self-management skills, or because they have a tough home life, they can because a disruption for others so it is essential for the school system to come up with a way to diffuse the maladaptive behavior.
According to the IDEA this is one of the Special Education categories of listed disabilities. There are indeed some students who do display inappropriate behaviors that are undesired in the school district, and even behaviors that parents express are unwanted. Some of these behaviors are the inability to stay on task, escaping from work that may appear to be too difficult for the student to do, and negative responses for attention purposes. Within the contents of this paper explanation on the importance and components of a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) and Behavior Support Plan (BSP) will be given, as well as description of when a student will need a FBA and BSP will be identified. One important fact to remember is that according to IDEA facilitators are required to perform a FBA in order to observe the student and discover the determining factor to the displayed behaviors.
Substance abuse is a difficult situation for anyone to deal with, but the problem is compacted when children are involved. Parents who are substance abusers may knowingly or unknowingly be causing a number of problems for their child. Emotional effects that children of substance abusive parents may experience are to blame themselves for their parent’s overall drug or alcohol abuse, thinking that they are not good enough and force their parents to use drugs or alcohol. There is a higher occurrence of depression, anxiety, eating disorders and suicide attempts among children growing up with substance abusive parents compared to children that grow up with parents who do not abuse substances. The child might develop stress-related health problems like gastrointestinal disorders, headaches, migraines, or asthma, causing them to miss
This paper describes a few methods and components that can be used to teach students with E.D. how to control their own emotions and behaviors before any learning can occur, behaviors must be controlled. Teaching Children that are Emotionally Disturbed Children vary in different sizes, shapes, and behaviors and all of these come into play when trying to maintain a successful classroom. The sizes and shapes however, do not matter as much as the children’s behaviors. A classroom, be it regular education or special education, depends on structure to be successful.
The Impact of Domestic Violence on Preschoolers Amy Zaroor Psychology 331 Dr. Watkins 7 December, 2009 Abstract Witnessing domestic violence has a negative effect on the development of preschool children. There is a discrepancy between exposed and non-exposed children in cognitive ability as well as externalizing and internalizing behavior problems. When a child witnesses this violence, their trust is broken and they often show symptoms of post traumatic stress disorder. There is a chance for children to show resilience in the face of witnessing this violence. Positive parenting, re-establishing trust, and being attuned to children’s emotions can play a big role in diminishing the harmful effects of this trauma.
The ability to control anger is dependent on one’s understanding of his or her emotions. However children’s ability to reflect on their anger is limited, therefore they need the guidance of an adult, usually their parents to help them understand and manage their feelings of anger (Zeman and Shipman, 1996). Children who are guided will learn to cope with angry feelings to avoid the stress often accompanied with it (Eisenberg et al., 1991). The young characters in Matilda, The Secret Garden, and Harriet the Spy all express and deal with their anger differently, but their anger shares a common root. Parental neglect is a likely source for the continuous
On the contrary, those children raised with little discipline and poor monitoring are prone to delinquency when exposed to the negative elements of the environment. According to Siegel (2011), family is the primary unit where children learn the values and attitudes that will guide them throughout their lives but when this very important unit is disrupt or goes under drastic changes can have negative long-lasting effects in the children. Family break ups, family conflicts, family ineffectiveness and family deviance might lead the children to the never ending road of criminality. Research indicates that parents whose marriage is happy and secure produce confident and independent children. Children of broken homes with one or both
