Feral Child Task This task will majorly focus on the lack of social and cognitive development of Genie and its connection with Piaget’s and Erickson’s human psychological development theories. As one of the most well- known feral children in the 20th century, the young girl Genie had been confined to a room, isolated and abused by her parents for over a decade before the rescue. Due to the severely abnormal development occurred in the childhood, Genie’s linguistic ability was nearly undeveloped, her limbs were not fully extended, her development was delayed from various perspectives. Piaget’s theory of cognitive development states four stages of cognitive development. During the first Sensorimotor Stage which Piaget
Moreover, Baby encounters rejection and stigma from authority figures and classmates, further contributing to her low self-esteem. For example, after a school teacher informed Xavier’s parents that, Baby is a troubled child from a broken home- Baby is unwelcome at his house. Lauren was Baby friend; however after witnessing Baby’s home life she humiliated and excluded Baby. Furthermore, they were many instances where the social workers and teachers could have intervened and make a positive difference in Baby’s life. However, they all fail to do so; Baby lamented "they are afraid of my sadness" (O'Neill, 2006, p.128).
At present there are a number of ministries which share the responsibility of caring for families and the children and as a result their policies and measures being developed and introduced appear to be ineffective and inconsistent and it is evident that the objectives and tasks are duplicated. Children's after-orphanage adaptation is also a very important issue. The period of transition from childhood to adulthood is difficult for any child, and especially orphans, who grew up in a children's institution on full state support in particular, in almost isolated world. Most of the graduates of orphanages have features that greatly complicate their own
They are deemed to be consumed with their own needs so much that they ignore or neglect the needs of their children. Children with neglectful parents showed the lowest levels in social, emotional, and academic abilities (Steinberg, Lamborn, Darling, Mounts, & Dornbusch, 1994). Children from neglectful family are often very lonely because they do not receive the necessary love from their parents. They also do not know how to develop their social skills and they might face difficulties in school, furthermore, they will act out the emotion in order to get the attention from their parents (Miller, 2010). These children often end up with psychological and behavioural problems.
(www.southeaster.edu retrieved 2003 September). Clarifications of the concepts and proposed relationships among the concepts in the study, is one of the purposes of a conceptual framework. A literature review is a focused reading with a specific purpose. There are several sources that are very essential in doing a review of related literature (Calix, et.al., 2007) It may come in a primary source, secondary source and lastly, is the tertiary source. Primary sources are the raw materials of your own research.
Introduction According to the UNICEF, an alarming number of children around the world who are convicted for various crimes are usually deprived of their needs and rights and held in detention without sufficient care. While the condition stresses on the improvement of these children, still there are issues of severe deprivation. Moreover, most of them are not been liked and yet are being held for months, often without access to legal aids, resulting that the majority of children come to conflicts with law. Some of these children are from the disadvantaged populations who are criminalized for simply lying for survival. Frequently, the children are held under deplorable and inhumane conditions.
Following data analysis, the researcher could restate their research question, thereafter present findings and conclusions. A sound methodology requires not only a summary of the findings, but acknowledgement of any weaknesses in the study. According to Yin (2003b) to achieve construct validity, the case study researcher will make use of multiple sources, internal validity; use logic models and do explanation building and for external validity, the use of theory. He adds that reliability will depend on the ability to develop a database. The reliability can be tested by finding out such things about the said
The study would also guide teachers to use the techniques in dealing with children with different abilities. The Project would also help teachers to analyze the drawbacks of inclusive education. The study would also help us to find out the solutions of problems faced by teachers while adopting inclusive education. The copy of the study would be send to the authorities for their attention. So the study will be used as reference material for teachers as well as authorities while adopting inclusive education.
Malnutrition can be defined as a deficiency of essential nutrients or failure to use available foods to the best benefits (Barasi, 1997). Malnutrition generally affects all groups in a society, but infants and young children are the most susceptible because of their high nutritional requirements for growth and development. Malnutrition prevents children from accomplishing their complete physical and mental capabilities. Health and physical effects of extended states of malnourishment among children are: delay in their physical growth and motor growth; lower intellectual quotient (IQ), greater behavioural challenges and defective social skills; vulnerability to contracting diseases (FAO, 2010; Black et al, 2003). A well- nourished child is one
