The children have taught me how to be a better person, along with me teaching them how to grow up to be an outstanding individual. Although I have several skills due to my experience with children already, I hope to improve them. There can always be improvement with any skill, even if I think I have
Some of the major components of the treatment are psychoeducation and parenting strategies, relaxation, affective expression and regulation, cognitive coping, trauma narrative and processing, in vivo exposure, conjoint parent child sessions and enhancing personal safety. Two skills that were particularly taught to Daneka were teaching her some muscle relaxation and deep breathing skills. This could be useful for her when she experiences nightmares, flashbacks or anxiety in general about the event. Another skill taught to Daneka was teaching her how to recognize signs if she’s ever in danger and how to stay safe. She was overall taught stress management and relaxation skills to help her cope with any unpleasant, intruding feelings or memories about the traumatic event.

I have always had the intense desire to care and look after people from a very young age. I firmly believe that everyone deserves the best quality of life possible and this is what had drawn me to occupational therapy as a career path in the first place. It is so easy to take for granted all the everyday tasks we can do and we seldom consider the effect of not being able to complete them. As an occupational therapist I would be able to make a positive impact on someone’s life and make it possible for them to enjoy their life. I want the opportunity to provide support to people, help them gain independence and watch them grow more confident in their own ability.
I would feel confused, since I could not think of a reason I would make fun of someone else. I would like for my children to fully understand just how rewarding and important it can be to simply show compassion towards other people. Hard work is easily one of the most important values one could have. Working hard plays a key factor in accomplishing any goal. However, working does not simply mean fulfilling the tasks one 's parents or school assign.
From Bailey (2010) music therapy is just an alternative intervention to enhance the main treatment and make it more effective especially when working in a social situation, creatively using music can help a child better understand the frustrations of others, by the type of music their peers have chosen to express their feelings. Children with ADHD can also express their own feelings through their choices. It adds an extra dimension to learning social skills. The related literature above emphasized the importance of music therapy to the children with disability particularly children with ADHD. Music therapy for Children with ADHD can help in terms of socialization and interaction.
Due to conflicting schedule, Sedaya’s nurse was unable to show me around the first day so I was all alone trying to figure out where I was going. This minor change would have helped me feel less anxious about interacting with the student on the first day. Overall, the way that I approached this assignment was to my best ability. Having never done something like this is was a real learning experience that helped me build confidence and strength. Based on my experience, the one recommendation that I can make based off my learning style is to focus on the student’s needs and the environment.
I am very blessed to have this opportunity to follow my dreams to help support children in need. Penn State would allow me to continue my dream of fighting for the kids. I would love to become a psychologist for the Penn State Hershey Children’s Hospital. Penn State recognizes the idea of fighting for those who cannot and I would love the opportunity to join the amazing team of people who make that happen. It is not too often that you find such a generous school that is united for one, singular cause.
This year I tutored middle school students. I contributed by always managing to make it whenever I didn’t work and by helping students do their best. My goals last semester was for us to communicate better, we had trouble communicating with the teacher. As a group we didn’t really feel acquainted to her and it was hard for us to communicate. This was one of our challenges because she wasn’t the best person to talk to.
He had a very hard job, many students did not have the motivation or support from their families to complete their homework. I was in a middle school math classroom and the students’ motivation was extremely low and most of the students ever wanted to do anything. The school I was at was pretty low income and had a very high amount of ELL students. My teachers main thing was to create relationships with the students. He told me that he wants to create a fun environment that makes the students actually want to come to school.
They do not agree that they have a responsibility to go over homework or assist their children at home. If their child does poorly in school they will blame the teacher for not doing their job. In contrast, parents apart of a higher social class tend to be more involved in their child’s school work resulting in high expectations of their children 's success in the classroom. Children become more self driven and motivated to complete their assignments and pass classes in hopes of not disappointing their parents. From my own experience, my parents have always been involved in my school activities.
Meanwhile, the babies will embody tomorrow’s world. One day these babies will become the hard core of the human society. Parents expect their children be healthy and get good education. They wish their children can be successful in the future. Most parent are willing to spend much time and money on their children.
Occupational therapy can help a person with Asperger’s thrive physically, emotionally, and socially. As previously stated, if these symptoms were to be left alone, these children and adults would be subjected to bullying, ridiculed, and social isolation due to them being naïve and having concrete views of the world resulting in being vulnerable. Through occupational therapy intervention, this cycle can be interrupted by helping the patient adjust their sensory system. This means, “gaining the physical abilities needed to succeed, acquire valuable social, prevocational, and play skills, and improve their overall ability to function.” Through this intervention, one can not only learn to succeed in the classroom but when the time comes, uphold employment. (Murray-Slutsky, 2004).
When attachment is formed with a loving caregiver or parent who is able to provide support, love, and guidance along with the basic human needs, attachment can be reinforced and healthy (VBH). Educating children and parents-to-be of consequences of ineffective parenting might reduce the incidence of RAD in children (Lehman & Jegtvig, 2004). Children with RAD are not completely lost with their ability to form attachments, those who have been diagnosed and seek treatment early with hopeful learn to be able to recognize and manage their behaviors and feeling as well as creating healthy relationship in their future. It is important to first get the child in a safe house with caregivers who genuinely care about them and are willing to work on developing positive interactions with the child. By using treatment methods like dyadic developmental therapy, integrative play therapy, and parent skills training are all credible techniques to help build trust and attachment.
I’ve seen with my eyes that teachers want to help others but don’t know how, everything that they have tried does not work anymore. Children need more discipline at home and at school so they know they can’t get away with being be bad. Instructor’s try over and over again to do the best they can. In between classes they
