Being a pre-service training educator, specific goals and objectives should be set to achieve educator’s own educational philosophy. The Educational philosophy is an individual statement of educators’ guiding principles about the education-related issues, which helps to guide when drawing up curricula and structuring classroom discussions for children. Every educator should have their unique set of principles and ideas to affect students’ performance. I strongly believe that early childhood education is to help children to achieve whole person development which including cognitive, physical, mental and social aspects. Children’s programs should be based on children’s needs and interests as they are going to grow, develop and mature in educators’
Special educational need supporter treats speech defects and disorders and encourages the ability to communicate. The speech therapist works in partnership with parents, teachers and other professionals involved, to help children develop their communication skills to the best of their ability, and reach potential both educationally and socially. For some children, particularly those with speech sound difficulties, this may involve weekly sessions for a period of them. For other children, input may be at the level of working with parents and professionals to set appropriate goals and monitor progress Assistive technology Health officer Paediatrician medical
Assessments are done to enable the building of a programme to facilitate a child’s strengths/needs, or who need additional services or supports such as SNA’s. It also allows for planning and constructing intervention programmes to aid ones learning. An assessment needed for the diagnosis of ADHD is multifaceted and includes behavioural, medical, and educational data gathering. One component of the diagnosis includes an examination of the child’s history through comprehensive interviews with parents, teachers, and health care professionals. Interviewing these individuals determines the child’s specific behaviour characteristics, when the behaviour began, duration of symptoms, whether the child displays the behaviour in various settings, and coexisting conditions.
Physical and Occupational Therapy May Improve Your Child’s Lifestyle Physical therapy may improve your child’s motor development to maximize his or her functioning and independence at home, at school and in the community. If you live in the Pasadena or Houston area, and your child suffers from an injury, disability or disease that hinders his or her movement, you may be able to take advantage of highly specialized physical therapists at pediatric physical therapy Pasadena. They are trained to address some of your child’s delayed physical milestones such as muscle weakness, poor balance, abnormal tone, orthopedic neurological abnormalities and coordination. Children of all ages from birth to 21 years may be able to benefit from treatment. Children may have customized treatment because no two children have exactly the same issues.
As mentioned earlier, the collaboration of the parents, teachers, and therapists is still essential to maximize the effectiveness of the therapy and treatment. Common cases treated by occupational therapists in school are gross motor and fine motor skills, visual-motor integration and visual-perceptual skills. Children having difficulties in those skills would probably be having difficulties in reading, writing, mathematics, manipulation of tools, physical education, independence, and social integration. As proven by Palisano in 1989, children of ages six to nine years of age with those difficulties were able to improve on those skills with the help of occupational therapy
Piaget and Maslow: Teaching the whole child Exceptional educators keep their fingers on the pulse of what their students need, in order to teach them effectively. Examining Piaget and Maslow’s theories, and applying them to the classroom will facilitate achieving this goal. Considering Piaget’s focus on development, and Maslow’s prioritization of human needs, one can integrate these ideas into classrooms and lesson plans that are optimized for student success.
As children’s experiences and knowledge are often communicated through play, it becomes an important vehicle for them to know and accept themselves and others. One of the most common types of play therapy for children is child-based therapy, in which a therapist and a child work alone. This is often used if there is a concern about the parents or abuse in the family, but can also be done simply to make the child feel more comfortable. It can be used to treat behavioural problems, anxiety, Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), autism, and the effects of abuse.
When teachers use Concept Development strategies and ask questions to encourage children to use their critical thinking skills children obtain a deeper understanding of a concept or activity. In addition, it is important to encourage children to solve problems and be creative. “What some ways you provide opportunities for children to solve problems and be creative throughout the day?”
It is also concerned with how individuals function in daily life skills. During child development one of the most important skills is playing with a toy, so if your child is having problems in touching toys or manipulating a toy, SIT takes place in enhancing this skill that your child have impairments with, by introducing activities that are chosen by the child, with providing therapist’s assistance, to deliver the accurate combination of tactile, proprioceptive and vestibular sensory involvement to encounter the child’s particular developmental needs. The activities are wisely planned by the occupational therapist, with the difficulty steadily advanced so the challenge is always at the best level to encourage growth and complete
Occupational Therapy is a profession primarily centred around client-therapist interactions. The main objective of an occupational therapist (OT) is to empower and assist their clients in their return to everyday life and activities. Occupational therapists work with their clients for extended periods of time in order to ensure that they are able to participate in their normal daily routines with some degree of ease. OT's achieve this goal through building trust and rapport with their clients by representing themselves with the highest degree of professional identity and following the codes of conduct, to which ensures safety to all involved in the achievement of this goal. As occupational therapists work closely with a number of different
All my life I knew that when I grew up I wanted to choose a profession that involved helping change lives. When I was in high school I heard about occupational therapy. I knew that was exactly what I wanted to do. To become an occupational therapist, you must have many traits. You must be able to communicate well.

Occupational therapy (OT) is a form of treatment for people recuperating from a physical or mental illness. It helps increase their quality of life by helping them return to or gain independence after an life-changing injury or diagnosis. Occupational therapy professionals help patients achieve rehabilitation through learning or relearning ways to complete required daily activities. Here at South University, the Occupational Therapy Assistant(OTA) program is a two-year Associate’s program for certification as an Occupational Therapy Assistant. Many people can benefit from an Occupational Therapist and their patients come from a wide variety of injured individuals and diagnoses.
Sometimes the decision is made to bring in an external professional to work with the school. This may be necessary if children require specialist assessments if concerns are raised by staff or parent/carers. Although there are many different types of professionals I am going to explain the role of three professionals. Speech therapist work with children who have difficulties with speech, language and communication or eating, drinking and swallowing. They identify the causes of the speech difficulty and create speech and language programmes.
