Unit 26 Caring for Individual with Additional Needs P3. Explain barriers which may be experienced by individuals with additional needs. In this task I am going to explain the barriers that are experienced by individuals with additional needs in their every day life. Individuals with disabilities are often treated as less human than those who do not have a disability such as people at school or colleges insulting and bullying disabled people because they are unable to do things like participating in the sports if they are the wheel chair users, or they may be bullied because they behave and understand things differently from everyone else. They can also be discriminated against by people overwhelming them too much.
One such joke has to do with bodily functions. Even if you don’t want to laugh at these jokes, which I usually try not to, I still find myself giggling at them. Another thing that could be considered distasteful can be jokes about the genders. I notice that as a woman, there are many gender stereotypes. Those types of jokes can be funny even if they are a little offensive as a woman.
1, 2, Societal attitudes and beliefs can impact individuals with sensory loss in quite a negative way because people in society can be very judgmental towards people with disabilities, and put them in a group of people with below average intelligence and assume they can’t do or think the same way as other people without disabilities can. People in society can also be very prejudice and ignorant and think they are better than people with sensory loss, also thinking it gives them the right to make fun at them and making life difficult in the process. Although not all people think the same way there are many other people in society that are very open towards individuals with disabilities and sensory loss and can be very helpful and kind, this can have a positive impact on people’s lives. 1, 3, There are a range of factors that societal attitudes and beliefs impact on service provisions, discrimination is one of the biggest problem in today’s society , people with sensory loss are treated differently, and there a lot of barriers that need to be overcome, service provision is a term used to describe a wide range of activities, including the provision of assistive devices, rehabilitation services, occupational therapy and health services. Although there are a lot of places like this there is still the need to raise awareness so
Therefore I am always active to look for signs of disability and to try where possible to lessen these so that the child has an equal opportunity to education. Children who have disabilities are often teased, tormented and bullied by other children. It is through that this is because people are not educated enough and do not understand what disability is and what it involves. A lot of the time when looking at a person with a disability, society see’s the disability first and the person second, when in actual fact people with disabilities are still human beings and so the person should come first and the disability just be thought about as part of this person. Children with disabilities quite often find that they cannot participate in lots of activities which other children of the same age can.
Bi-Polar Disorder “Life is hard, and children have to be told how hard life can be….so they will be sympathetic to others, So they will understand that some people have it harder than they do and that a trip through this world can be a wildly different experience, depending on what chemicals are raging through one’s mind” (Matthew Quick, The Silver Linings Playbook.) People spend the course of their lives dealing with triumphant obstacles and for some they can get right back up. Others sometimes get stuck and just stay in their predicament. As outsiders, we may say these individuals may suffer from a psychological issue causing them to stay in their set mind state. One of the many disorders a person can have is Bi-Polar disorder.
Phobias often come under the heading of childhood anxiety disorders but they are now becoming so common that they may be dealt with as a separate issue. Panic disorders are also linked to phobias and these can be devastating as they can disable the normal life of the child. Once again recognition and treatment are
Poor living conditions, inadequate diet and exercise and quality of life, leading to increased illness. Toys are needed to encourage play, development and stimulation. Child’s life style choices, such as drugs and alcohol can affect development along with parents lift style choices. Children need love and affection and the need to feel secure. Have stimulation and play experiences.
Amy McCay Unit 1 Understand child and young person development 2.1 There are many personal factors that influence a childs development. These are a few examples: Impaired hearing - If a child has impaired hearing then it can cause them to struggle to understand what is being said to them and can also cause their speech to develop slower. This means that they will not develop as quickly as the other children in certain areas such as 'communication and language' as their communication and language skills may not be as good as everyone else's. They may also not develop very well socially as they could loose a lot of self confidence due to realising they are being treated differently to everyone else so may not feel confident enough to form
Autistic people may try rock, spin or flap their hands to deal with the stress. Autistic people also find it hard to use their body awareness system, and may find it difficult to navigate objects and other people or be aware of their distance from other people. Most people with autism will have a special interest which can take up most of their time. This can be from an early age but can change over time although in most cases it is lifelong. These interests can range from media such as music or tv and film to vehicles or electronics.
* Tendency to cross addict Using other substances particularly when trying to control drug of choice. * Continuing use Despite progressively damaging consequences and repeated serious concerns of others.If three or more of these characteristics are in evidence, there is likely to be an addiction problem. | Codependency What is codependency? | In many respects codependency can be regarded as part of being human. Whether or not we grow up in an obviously dysfunctional family, most of us are exposed to some powerful, sometimes gross and sometimes subtle formative experiences wherein we feel that there is something about ourselves which is not okay.
