For example, the /a/ is associated with 1000 Hertz and the /s/ is associated with hearing at 4000 Hertz. Presentation of these speech sounds at varying intensities will reveal more precise thresholds at different frequencies. It is vital to assess Baily’s hearing because of her speech development history that indicates that she was babbling at 6 months but then seized for 3-4 months after. This may indicate a lack of auditory feedback, as the child was engaging in her communication attempts and can further explain a struggle in understanding
The study shows that for the age, occupational class, and IQ scores were comparable to those of the participated in the main study. A score of 7 would show a diagnosis of borderline personality in a person, which out of all the subjects, only four attained that score. The measures were associated with scores for characteristics of schizotypal and borderline disorders. The correlations
In an experiment conducted by Jennifer Steele from the American University, Students assigned of the former are said to outperform their monolingual peers by 10 percent in reading comprehension. Steele also adds that it is not reading but also in subjects like math or science. She explains the improvement from “metalingustic awareness” or how learning more than one language increases awareness in how languages work overall. Another explanation comes from Gigi Luk from Harvard. From an experiment she conducted on 100 fourth grade students in Massachusetts, test results from a reading test differed from language experiences It was concluded that those whose native language was not English actually scored higher.
A score that is low at 1 minute often improves when the assessment is done again at 5 minutes. The Apgar score helps your baby's health care provider to make decisions about what type of care your baby needs after birth. The score does not predict how healthy your baby will be in the future.

This study tried to identify whether ‘talking therapies’ were effective in reducing relapse of moderate to severe depression in young people during a period of one year after treatment ends. Results in this study showed that young participants in all three modalities of the study presented reduced depressive symptoms. STPP was considered as effective as CBT and BPI in holding reduced depressive symptoms a year after the end of treatment with a small advantage of 85% of adolescents treated by STPP not meeting diagnostic measure for depression compared to 75% in CBT and 73% in BPI. Despite these percentages not being considered statistically significant it points out the effectiveness of STPP in decreasing depression in a long term. In relation to the cost of treatments, there were no differences between the three treatments costs at the end of the
Their final hypothesis is that either both of the responsiveness level and demand will be affected by neighborhood danger or that there will be a higher level of harsh parenting, acceptance, and demand. The study the researchers use for this article is a sub-sample from a larger one with a sample size of 749 of families with 5th grade students in schools that are located “in a large metropolitan area of the southwestern U.S”. This sub-sample focuses on students in 5th grade who had both parents participating in a sample size of 466. However, four were missing data, so the final study included information from 462 families.
They were evaluated for pain using Numerical Pain Rating Scale (NPRS) and the forward head posture was assessed by measuring CV angle. The total duration of the study was 6 months. Analysis was done using SPSS Version 20. Results: Spearman’s correlation test was used to find correlation between CV angle and neck pain and the r value was found to be -0.731 with the level of significance 0.01. Conclusion: A moderate to good negative correlation was found between CV angle and neck pain.
Of the six children who had stuttered before the negative reinforcement therapy, three became worse. In comparison, only one of the children in the group labeled 'normal ' had greater speech problems after the study. The second stage of his experiment involved dividing all of the children into two groups. The first group received a simple steroid pill approved by FDA for use in various immune conditions.
Results showed significant differences in social, cognitive and physical development preferring the children in the experimental group, this suggests that music can create a more relaxed learning
It calls for assessments to be fair and not culturally or linguistically biased. Larry P. v. Wilson Riles (1979) was heard in the United States District Court, and was a pivotal case in outlining non-discriminatory assessment. Larry P. was a low performing student that attended a school from the San Francisco Unified School District. He was assessed by a school psychologist using the Stanford Binet Intelligence Test and it was found that Larry P. had mild mental retardation and was placed in an Educable Mentally Retarted (EMR) class. Many African-American and Latino students were disproportionately being placed in EMR classes.
88 adolescents age 11 to 22 who had suffered mild trauma to the head. 45 of the teens were told to rest 24 to 48 hours and then slowly return to their normal routine. 43 teens were more restricted for 5 days they weren’t allowed to do much of anything or go to
In their study Hall & Case-Smith (2007) conducted research on the effect of sensory diet and therapeutic listening intervention programs that was guided by an license occupational therapist and implemented by parents in their home, on children with sensory processing disorders and visual-motor delays. In the study included 10 children between the ages of 5 and 11 years old, who displayed moderate to sever sensory processing disorder and visual-motor integration delays (Hall& Case-Smith, 2007). The exclusion criteria of the study were participants with moderate to sever mental retardation, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, visual impairment, hearing impairment, and severe autism (Hall& Case-Smith, 2007). However participants could have attention deficit hyperactivity, sensory integration disorder, mild autism or pervasive developmental disorder, Asperger syndrome, developmental delays, coordination disorder, or motor delays (Hall& Case-Smith,
1)The first article is called Portuguese Immigrant Families: The Impact of Acculturation this was written by MARIE MORRISON, M.A. and SUSAN JAMES, PH.D.. This article helps us understand what happens when some Portuguese families move to the United States and how they are able to be able to change adapt to the change in cultures. It also looks at how it affects their thinking. Morrison and James describes acculturations as “when groups of individuals having different cultures come into continuous, first-hand contact, with subsequent changes in the original culture pat- terns of either or both groups’’.
When supporting children individually, you can ensure you give tailored support specific for that child’s needs instead of having to consider the needs of others. It is an ideal situation to be in but sadly it is often an unrealistic one. Therefore it is important to plan and prepare for such events to ensure you can get the most out of the session. Before you aim to support a child in this way, you must first get to know the child, their likes/dislikes, any special requirements/IEP’s/SEN’s etc. A brief conversation with their parent or carer or, if that is not possible, their class teacher, can provide you with the right information if the right questions are asked.
