Observation Notes This assignment addresses the etiology of each child and the varying Augmentative and Alternative Communication (AAC) strategies used to enhance the child’s communicative ability. The report features a description of the overall interaction with the individuals in natural communicative context with a discussion on the types of vocabulary and graphic symbols selection used on the AAC device. Furthermore, it addresses the treatment method and type of team approach used for therapy as well issues related to funding and service delivery of AAC services. Before meeting the students Joe and John, I met briefly with Jen, the speech language pathologist (SLP) to discuss my assignment and the expectations and treatment outcomes. Both students use direction selection, AAC devices.
Two children one girl of eight and one boy of sixteen were given a self- completion questionnaire that started with the question ‘who am I’, and continued with ten numbered lines each beginning with ‘I’, that the participants were asked to write their chosen descriptions of themselves, after the participants had open ended interviews with the children individually to find out about their self- perceptions. It has been established that children’s self-descriptors change as they become more aware of outside influences as they get older. Thus the hypothesis was supported. Introduction This study explores how children’s self –descriptions of themselves change as they become older. Harter (1983) reviewed several studies and outlined a developmental sequence in which children’s self-descriptions change as they become more aware of the information about themselves available from other sources.
I would like you to think of the reasons why such systems are in place and different ways by which children and young people can be exposed to harm. The unit is knowledge based and would be assessed through written assignment. The work book and your text book would be useful. Please refer to your Plagiarism document for guidance on referencing. I would like you to draw from your experience in your and give examples as much as possible.
Effects of Research in Educational Psychology on Learning Braden R. Andrews Liberty University The purpose of the study conducted by Pedro Blanco and Dee Ray was to examine the effects of Child-Centered Play Therapy or CCPT on 1st graders who were academically challenged. Forty-three academically at-risk children were selected from Title I schools for the study. Students were deemed academically at-risk if they had been held back, did not perform well on stadnarized test, or if they were in custody of the state. The Young Children’s Achievement Test (YCAT), a comprehensive test that measures early academic achievement levels in children ages 4-8, was used as the testing instrument. After parental consent was received, each participant was administered the YCAT as a pre-test.
Abstract This paper informs the reader of the basic theories on learning styles and personality differences established by David Kolb, Carl Jung, Katherine Briggs, Isabel Briggs-Myers, David Kiersey and Marilyn Bates. I have also given my own feedback of their theories after taking their tests to see which particular learning styles and personality type I possess. Personalized Learning Personality and Learning Styles go hand in hand in understanding who you are and how you learn. Personality Typing is a self discovery that can help you in growth and development. Personality is defined as the quality or collection of qualities which makes a person a distinct individual.
A) Compare and contrast any two of the methodologies that you have pursued in this phase and write a comparative essay. There are numerous approaches to early childhood education. Two perspectives, developed by Friedrich Froebel and Maria Montessori, have similarities as well as many differences. Both approaches are based on the idea that early childhood learning is holistic and intertwined with the developmental progression of the child. They are both constructivist, holding that children learn through constructing meaning with their world.
There are many aspects in how we acquire language and also many different theories and beliefs about how language is acquired. Language is a crucial part of our everyday lives, and it also enables us to speak to one another and also understand one another in the day to day life. Jean Piaget and Lev Vygotsky are well known for their theories of language acquisition and development in children. This essay will talk about the similarities and differences between these two theorists stated above and their perspectives on language acquisition and development in children. Lev Vygotsky’s theory of cognitive development emphasises that a child’s culture and social interactions with others is a significant factor in a child’s overall development.
It can outline the basis for the partial development of the right learning needs and abilities and may also be constructive preliminary stage for future learning prospects There are many rationales why it’s significant to observe and assess pupils’ development. For example, to be able to recognize the broad choice of skills in all areas of pupils development. This will help teachers and teaching assistants to set out goals that need improving and building upon current skills to allow pupils to achieve their educational attainment at different levels. Moreover it is important to observe and assess in order to identify and comprehend the cycle of development in children. This understanding should be used to connect the hypothesis and theory with my own practice as a teaching assistant within the school.
Erikson for his theory of psychosocial development, who believed that personality develops in a series of stages. However, each author has their own view regarding the educational implication of the various processes, as well as, the role of various environmental components. The following articles (Horn 2009), will attempt to support and the educational implications of each theory. The articles highlight the major theories, research and opinions of Piaget, Vygotsky, and Erik Erikson’ on how children develop and learn. The first article by (Webb 1980) talks about Piaget belief that within each person there is an internal self-regulation mechanism that responds to environmental stimulation by constantly fitting new experiences into existing cognitive structures called schemas developmental stages in teaching.
The building blocks of knowledge 2 Processes that enable the transition from one stage to another (Equilibrium, assimilation and accommodation) 3 Stages of development (Sensory motor, preoperational, concrete operational and formal operational) Piaget believed that these stage are universal, i.e. that the same sequence of development occurs in children all over the world, whatever their culture. Because of Piagets theories, preschools and schools have tried to give a more hands-on approach to learning, and teachers plan activities by working out the needs of the children. His work has also influenced the management of behaviour because he looked at morality from a childs point of view
