Introduction: This report will be based upon my research of the medical and social models of disability. The social model represents how people with disabilities feel they are an outcast in society because of how people treat them and see them. On the other hand, the medical model demonstrates how people believe that it is individualistic and that the person with the disability reinforces the fact their bodies may be different and this is what excludes them from society. (Moyne, 2012)
I personally think it is very beneficial for SLPs to know and understand certain aspects of audiology so they can better understand what is happening to their patients who are deaf and hard of hearing, treat them more appropriately and successfully, and look for warning signs in other clients they may have. As a student in a speech pathology program, I think learning this information will help me to become more knowledgeable and more successful as a speech pathologist. Because SLPs and audiologists collaborate often, it is necessary for the SLP to understand what the audiologist tells them so the patient can have the best therapy and treatment plan available. All of these aspects of audiology within speech pathology fall under a speech pathologist’s scope of practice and can be applied to the everyday
Chanel Yu Mrs. Williamson History 10 May 21, 2016 Disabled Sports in the Disability Civil Rights Movement Before the 1960s society held bias assumptions and harmful stereotypes towards people with disability. They were forced to go to nursing homes and institutions because they were considered destitute, scandalous, defective, and feeble-minded. Institutions showed them little respect, never made attempts to empathise with disabled people’s experiences, and often deliberately caused them pain and discomfort. Not only did they have to endure harsh living conditions and poor medical treatment, but they also were asked personally offensive questions that may be may be intentional or unintentional. The efforts of trying to make their way in
this essay, I will discuss what the medical and social models believe,the importance of both the social and medical model, the disadvantages of both and my opinion on these models. The Medical model. The medical model is "disability located within the individual" (lecture notes,Suzanne Duggan 21/09/2016).
â€¢ Listen to others: listening to people shows them that you have respect for them and that you care about what they say and also their feelings. If a child comes to you sometimes, what they are saying might not be important but you must always show interest in them by being attentive towards them and having a positive body language when you are responding to them. This promotes respect, courtesy, and positive communications. â€¢ Remember things that are important to them: remembering certain things about a person can make a big difference. For example, if you remember a childâ€TMs birthday, it can change the way they communicate with you or feel about you.
An example is that of a malnourished child who can be from any racial background but when the term malnutrition comes on board, the social service provider associates it to non whites. It is clear that there has been failure on the part of healthcare providers which can be amended by removing stereotypes and taking each case as special. Racial Identity Development (RID) is important to an individual in coming to terms with the day to day hardships that racial profiling presents people as well as the disparities they are constantly faced with. Though achieving cultural awareness and skills is not enough, they have helped in building bridges.
I have worked to safeguard children and promote their welfare, which includes protecting them from maltreatment or things that are bad for their health or development; and making sure they grow up in circumstances that allow safe and effective care. I work in partnership with service users to support social integration, empowering them to lead meaningful and purposeful lives: promoting health outcomes, resilience, peer support, employment opportunities and self-determination. I am excited at the possibility to develop new skills, undertake more training and willing to take on any new challenge such as urine screening and handling body fluid
As a medical profession, one must examine his or her practice and make sure it aligns with actions that are conducive to creating a more equal healthcare environment. This begins with facilitating greater access to primary care and actively providing services in underserved areas. The greatest way that primary care impacts underserved populations is through preventing disease and promoting healthy lifestyles. When a medical provider can see a patient while his or her condition is still at an early stage, the disease is prevented from progressing to a stage that is more difficult and costly to treatment. In addition to increased primary care access, it is also important for medical providers to educate the public about health disparities.
Reconstructive surgery can be a difficult and rather awkward subject for individuals to discuss. Reconstructive surgery offers assistance to those struggling with impaired body structures and movement as a result of an accident or even a simple birth abnormality. Through means of reconstructive surgery patients are able to leave with improved movement and a more normalized appearance. Reconstructive surgery is offered as elective and non-elective which determines whether the surgery is performed for aesthetics (“Plastic Surgery” para 1-2). In recent years, reconstructive surgery has received a negative reputation due to motives of improved appearance.
Shortly afterwards, parents will find that instead of harming themselves, in fact they are deriving benefit from it, which is beneficial for balance, coordination and flexibility, for the psychological adjustment to relieve nerve, and a very good role to improve physical and mental
These children need attention and care, it should take priority. Culture match needs to take precedence in the foster care system. It would help ease their adaptation of foster children to their new environment. It would make it easy for the children and foster parents to connect.
It is very important to have effective communication when developing positive relationships with children, young people and adults. When developing positive relationships with children and young people it is important to ensure that communication is effective as this will help to ensure that the environment that you are in will be a calm and happy place. Also if a child responds to the communication that is given then this will create trust and honesty between themselves and adults and other children. When trying to create effective communication, if a child or young person does not respond to communication with others this could affect their leaning and social skills, it could also mean that they could be hiding something that could be very
Firstly raise and encouragement are crucial within supporting a child 's development so the child doesn 't search elsewhere for other ways of gaining attention. Praise is important as children can become more critical of themselves and start comparing themselves to other children. Secondly; explanation, this should be enforced so that the children understand why certain boundaries and rules are put into place. For example, the routine of the particular room in which the child is in.
What are the weaknesses of this assessment tool? It is critical that observations be free of bias and objective, a skill that needs to be developed and can be a challenge for some teachers. • How do you use the results of the assessment? Repetition and multiple opportunities for learning are important for all children, so offering different activities for learning concepts and skills benefit all children, there is no negative impact when providing activities that support skills repeatedly.
