Socially constructed identities are utilized to identify who we are and to oppress individuals, especially if they do not conform to those identities or are coming from an intersecting identity. Sometimes on the journey to establish identity and sense of self battles are faced in terms of oppression, acceptance, and silence. All of these variables, in accordance with intersectionality, can make it very difficult for someone to identify themselves or for others to identify them. When an individual comes from an intersecting identity, just like in Zami and Redefining Realness, they often are searching for acceptance and struggle with silence as the origin of their oppression is not as apparent if that intersectionality was not present or as potent.
Over the years, bilingualism has been a sensitive subject for psycholinguistics, cognitive scientists and neuroscientists because of the positive and negative effects it has on the human brain linguistically and cognitively, as it has been a confusing subject for the parents. First of all, for the advantages, “The Shape Stroop Test”, a study that involved both monolingual and bilingual children, showed that the latest are more capable to concentrate on a significant task or information while ignoring irrelevant ones, which is one of the many cognitive benefits. The study consisted for instance on showing the kids photos of fruits containing smaller ones and they were supposed to spot the smaller fruits. Choosing the smaller fruit is not easy for young children because of the natural instinct to look at the bigger
Which can be very unhealthy for persons who face these issues as they can lead to depression, because of people having different mental build-ups. Some people are unable to deal with certain pressures that they undergo in life and so many persons manage these pressures differently if they can at all. Some may quickly bounce back up after realizing what they were doing wrong while some may take a longer while and some may never even get there as many have resorted to doing unthinkable things such as take out their distress on other persons whether verbally or even cause harm to others physically. This is sadly the time when a lot of persons realize the weight that social pressures bring and add to the lives of
Others factors that contribute to a learning disability are genetics, toxins, and medical history. I recommend consulting with your family physician. Children with learning disabilities can have social-emotional problems. They tend to run a greater risk than their peers that don’t have a learning disability: for example, a child could experience depression, social rejection, loneness or suicidal ideations (Hallahan, Kauffman and Pullen, 2012). Here at the school we will have a team to educate George.
Attachment issues can cause physical problems, such as failure to thrive, as well as emotional disorders like depression, failure to form attachments to caregivers, or mental-health disturbances. The more times a child is moved, the less likely he is to form secure attachments. Between 33 and 66 percent of foster-care arrangements are disrupted during the first two years, reports developmental psychologist, Brenda Jones Harden in "Safety and Stability for Foster Children," an article published in the winter 2004 issue of the journal The Future of Children. Kids with attachment issues might be distrustful and suspicious, unable to follow rules, or appear to have no sense of guilt over their behavior. Some attach too easily to any adult that try tries to care for them, but on a shallow level and to meet
Any sign of smooth-surface caries is indicative of severe early childhood caries (S-ECC) in children younger than three years of age. From ages three through five, even one or more cavitated, missing (due to caries), or filled smooth surfaces in primary maxillary anterior teeth or a decayed, missing, or filled score of greater than or equal to four (age 3), greater than or equal to five (age 4), or greater than or equal to six (age 5) surfaces also constitutes
It appears to affect boys more than girls. The cause or causes are still unknown. (Citation#2 - National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders). I. Diagnosis and Treatment A. There is no one “program” that is right for every child with apraxia and commercial products and programs can be tools for use in therapy by a speech-language pathologist who understands the nature of apraxia and how to treat it (Citation#3 Gertz,
When one child has autism, the chance of a non-twin sibling having it as well is only 2-8%.The term spectrum refers to the wide range of symptoms, skills and level of impairment, or disability, that children with ASD can have. Some children are mildly impaired by their symptoms but others are severely disabled (National Institute of Mental Health, 2011). Autism has increased dramatically within the past years. More children are being diagnosed each year due to increased awareness and diagnosis that have been made. Many people in our society may have heard the word autism or know a friend or family that is diagnosed with having autism.
Once a person is introduced into different ways of thinking, they feel that they are restricted to think in other ways. This restriction, is the handicap. The handicap prevents George from thinking too much. From using his ability to think in a different way. In this society, many people appear that they are not open minded.
The most pressing problems are related to his play. He is already 3 and a half years old, yet his play skills are like that of a 1 year old. It is through playing that a child acquires most of the speech and language skills. The delays in his play affected his precursory skills, which has a direct correlation in his acquisition of vocabulary, ability to follow commands, and in turn speak words. Limitations in his language affected his speech skills, since when playing he doesn’t really include another person or doll, he had limited opportunities to complete his phonetic inventory or the sounds that he is able
Sometimes, people are not educated. When they don’t understand something, they may react negatively. Much like the majority of the citizens in Pleasantville. It’s sad, but comprehendible.
On the other hand there are many symptoms that fall into the category of avoidance. A few symptoms are avoiding certain objects, places, or even people that remind the person of the event. In addition the person will also try to avoid talking or thinking about what happened during the event. When a person is dealing with negative changes in their thinking and mood they typically have no positivity and have negative feelings about everything. Adding on to that, the usually cannot remember certain parts of the traumatic event and they feel hopeless.
Usually they require a speech therapist from a very young age. They may also find it easier to use simple sign language as a means of talking and this is known as a ‘Lamh’. Down syndrome children usually have mild learning disabilities which may mean when it comes to school they may need to be accompanied by a special needs assistant. As well as this they have short attention spans and therefore can only learn things within short sessions.
According to Dr. Shaywitz, if one parent is dyslexic then one-quarter and one-half of their children will also be dyslexic, and if one child in a family is dyslexic, chances are that almost half of the siblings are also dyslexic (qtd. in Allen). Other early indicators include delay in speaking and not being able to rhyme words. Starting in preschool or kindergarten, it includes not being able to remember sight words and having trouble learning letter names and sounds. Hopefully the teacher will notice the reading difficulties, but many times this is not the case. If the dyslexia is not severe, the teacher may not pick up on the indicators.
When the baby is born, it is usually a stillbirth, or they die shortly after they are born. The condition usually makes that babies unconscious, deaf, blind, and some are even unable to feel pain. However, with all of these defects, the baby might still have reflexes, such as breathing and responding to
