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.
This experiment took 22 orphaned children some with stutter problems and some without. This study was made with a thesis that states “If stuttering is learned behavior, it can be unlearned.” (Gretchen Reynolds, 2003, mytimes.com). By using this thesis to build an experiment, the children were broken into groups and some were told that there stutter was not as bad as they thought while the remaining children were told that their stutter (which was not existent) was a lot worse than the scientists had expected. Within a months’ time. the children who were told that their stutter was worse became inconsistent with their speech.
Reflection on Middle Childhood Middle Childhood is a period of time in which children gain a sense of self and build on cognitive abilities learned in Early Childhood. Sigmund Freud labeled this time in a child’s life the “latency stage” because sexual and aggressive urges are repressed, and possibly because physical growth is slow and steady. The subject of my middle childhood interview was Lisa, a nine-year-old Caucasian female in her home located in Highland Park, as well as a twenty minute observation across the street at a neighborhood park. She is an only child that lives with her mother in an apartment and visits her father in Stephenville twice a month, as well as two months every summer. Lisa’s mother, a teacher in DISD, divorced the father four years ago and intentionally moved to Highland Park for the quality of the school district.
Michael Rutter and the case study of Romanian orphans in 1998 Aim: Rutter et al wanted to find if it was separation from the mother or the severe circumstances in Romania that was responsible for any negative effects Procedure: 111 Romanian children were assessed on a variety of measures of physical and intellectual ability when they arrived to Britain. Most of them had been in the orphanages from shortly after they were born. The children’s IQ was tested when they came in the UK and the average score for the Romanian orphans was 63.For those over 6 months the average was 45.Physical development was also poor,51% of them being in the bottom of 3% of the population for weight. They were also shorter in height than was normal for their age and had smaller head circumferences. The Romanian children were tested again at the age of 4 and compared to a control group of 52 British-adopted children who were 4 as well, who didn’t show any of the negative effects suffered by the Romanians.
These children, however, have poor social skills, and show signs of low self-esteem, while having high levels of depression (Partner, 2009). Authoritative Parents Authoritative, Demanding and Responsive parents (Partner, 2009) also set limits but understand where their children are coming from. They monitor their children but not in a controlling way. They support their children with rewards for good behavior as opposed to punishment for bad behavior. They see their children in a positive light and want the best for them individually,
Ellen Glanz concluded that many students are turned off because they have little power and responsibility over their own education. I agree with Banas statements. Three ways students should feel empowered over their education is better communication, efficient assignments, and better teachers. Communication is an important essential
Everyone can see the effects separation and divorce play on older children because they can verbally tell you and it shows in their work performance whether it be in their grades in school or sports or overall negative behavior. However few studies have targeted on younger children and their psychological being or the effect of their cognitive behavior. This sample study targeted the first three years of a child’s life. The study included children of 73 single moms that have never been married, and 97 divorced mothers. It also had a group of 170 children from a two parent household (Clark-Stewart, McCartney, Owen, Booth, 2000).
As I was reading the beginning of the article, Are Babies Born Good by Abigail Tucker, it talks about how the 23 year old researcher Arber Tasimi at Yale University’s Infant cognition center studies about that moral inclination of babies- how the littlest children understand right and wrong before language and culture exert their deep influence. Such repercussion is coming from the experimental studying of biographical to psychology to the evolution of childhood. Test result from biographical shows that the babies don’t reliably control their bodies or communicate well during the 4th month period, where the psychology proves that they have barely been exposed to the world, with its convoluted, culture and social norms, they represent the raw materials of humanity as well as the research from the author of the evolution of childhood claimed the baby knows more than we think she knows. Mr. Tasimi is passionate about the perplexing study of babies and young toddler; he demonstrated his work result through different experiment from different resources. One research from journal Nature lab study shows how we can identify the 6 to 10months old are preferred good guys to bad guys, because this concept might reflect the foundation of moral action and it may form an essential basis for more abstract concepts of right and wrong.
According to the National Foster Parent Association to the 1500s, when the law allowed poor children to be placed into indentured facilities until they came of age. It was the poor English Law that lead to the development and regulation of family foster care. Indentured facilities allowed abuse and mistreatment, even though it was a step forward from almshouses (charitable homes that were built for poor people to live in) where children didn’t learn a trade and were open to terrible surroundings. This was a time it where children were placed in foster homes because their parents were deceased not because they were abused since it was socially accepted. Charles Loring Brace a minister and a director of the New York Children’s Aid Society began the free foster care movement in 1853 because he was troubled by many children sleeping in the streets.
Sine after-school programs were not supported by the government, community associations like Boy Scouts of America and YMCA were in charge of most after-school activities. However, after educational standards expectation became stricter, a lot of states considered developing extra learning supports to help children achieve. Simply, early programs were developed partly to help immigrant children to adjust to a new country and learn what it means to be a citizen. Programs today serve not only the children of immigrant families but also general children ages 5 to 12 in the United States. Kweonmin Yi, who graduated from Cedar Park Christian High School as an international student in 2009, is an example of an immigrant who found greater social connection in America through after-school programs.
