Social stories were a creation of an academic called Carol Gray, first published in her paper, Social stories: Improving responses of students with autism with accurate social information (1993). They are great tools that can help children with ASD to learn about the appropriate responses and reactions to situations,and they can also be adapted to each child and help children learn about the mental states of other people, including causes, and behaviours that other people may show when in specific mental states. Another intervention i have seen at work is the incredible five point scale, this intervention is used on a young lad i work with at college and our scale is very similar to the example used in the book, on a visual manner, he has a scale in front of him and when he can often sing and get louder and louder and so on his scale we added in singing too loud singing outdoors and indoor singing so with his talking and singing were able to visually show him by running our finger from too loud to
The effect of treatment on anxiety and depression was analyzed using analysis of variance. In phase two, the TAU group received the treatment and was assessed both before and after receiving it. The results from this were combined with those receiving MBCT in phase one and the two groups were followed up at three months. It was concluded that MBCT group in phase one had significant improvements and a decrease in anxiety while in phase two, both groups at three month follow up showed statistically significant improvements in both anxiety and depression. It was also concluded that the effect on depression/anxiety was brought about by self-compassion.
First, Data was collected regarding the type of hearing loss, age at implantation, age at hearing aid fitting, audiometric details, and preoperative and postoperative communication mode. Thereafter, the analysis by Richard C. Dowell, Elizabeth Winton, Shani J. Dettman suggested that 3 factors have a significant predictive value for speech perception after implantation: preoperative open-set sentence score, duration of profound hearing loss, and equivalent language age. These 3 factors accounted for 66% of the variance in this group. Consequently, the results of this study suggest that children who have useful speech perception before implantation, and higher age-equivalent scores on language measures, would be expected to do well with a cochlear implant and develop spoken language. (Dowell 1-18) In like manner, A third study was done by Donoghue, and Gerard M. (pg.
This finding is similar to the cross sectional study conducted by Yasmin et al. on factors associated with stress among 800 adolescents. The study findings showed that only 392 adolescents (49%) had information about body changes prior to puberty. Among female adolescents who had prior discussion about puberty, the mean estimated stress score decreased by -1.312 and it was revealed that the information regarding pubertal body changes prior to puberty (p knowledge, attitude, and behavior, the girls were educated for three months by health teachers regarding physiologic, psychologic, physical and other information about puberty. The result of the study revealed that the mean score of female adolescent’s healthy behaviour were significantly increased at the end of the educational course from 37% to
The study evaluates the effect of adolescent depression after a decade with respect to social, demographic, and health outcomes. The results suggest a significant correlation with depression recurrence, migraine headaches and lower level of self-reported health status. There is little correlation with the individual’s education, career, income or relationship status. An analysis of these outcomes helps in understanding the effect of adolescent depression and need for screening and treatment. Richardson, L.P., Ludman, E., McCauley, E., Lindenbaum, J., Larison, C., Zhou, C., Clarke, G., Brent, D., & Katon, W. (2014, August 27).
The study was conducted by surveying 2,199 adolescents from the data of National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. The adolescents were asked to do a Depression Screener and also were asked questions that consisted to spot the depression signal. The results were that female adolescents tends to usually have higher depression rate than male adolescents. According to the study, girls are more likely to have higher depression rates because their puberty usually occurs earlier than male adolescent (Moreh and O’Lawrence, 2016) “Depressive disorders are more than twice as common in girls as in boys possibly because of differences in coping styles during puberty” (Bhatia & Bhatia, 2007). Puberty usually causes adolescents to enter depression because of the changes they have to adapt to, which usually gives them stress.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION: On the basis of raw scores, MANOVA will be used to compare whether any significant difference exists between third party disability in mothers of children and teenagers with cerebral palsy. Results were indicative of a statistical significant difference (p<0.05) between both the groups. SUMMARY AND CONCLUSION: While current literature suggests there is a broad range of consequences for family members of people with cerebral palsy, the sequelae of disability for family members of people with cerebral palsy is not well understood. Further research is needed to be done to better describe the nature and degree of third-party disability in mothers of children and teenagers with cerebral palsy. References W. (2001).
Biddle & Asare (2011) specified that mental health issue between adolescents is categorised as critical alterations in the ways children characteristically pick up and learn, act, or control their feelings and emotions. He also stated that symptoms generally initiate in initial childhood, though certain disorders might progress later in the teen years. Moreover, the diagnosis is repeatedly prepared in the school time as well as at times earlier. Nevertheless, it is also noticed that sometimes, a few children with a mental illness might not be acknowledged or detected as having
The report has a table that showed the mean levels of physical aggression and hyperactivity by age from 1 ½ to 5 years of age. One model that is used in this article was the family stress which states that economic hardship has a high level of stress (Conger & Donnellan, 2007). In that model, family stress had less nurturing and parental involvement. There were other factors such as depression marital conflict, anxiety, anger and alienation. Variables, potential mediators and control variables.
If an individual can successfully resolve each crisis within each stage the healthier their development will be. This paper will examine in detail Erickson’s eight stages of psychosocial development. Erikson’s Psychosocial Stages Stage One: Trust vs. Mistrust Trust versus mistrust is Erik Erickson’s first psychosocial stage. This stage is mostly experienced the first year of life (the book). The development of trust that an infant engages in sets the positive or negative expectation they have on the world (Karkouti, 2014).
