If respect is shown to people with SEN it makes them comfortable and loved. Respect helps them build better relationships with their tutors and instructors and respond better to learning and the world at large.
I was fortunate to be placed in Ms. Gohil’s classroom because her classroom was dedicated to students with special needs. This allowed me to experience first hand what an actual special education teacher does during a typical class day. I also was able to see paraprofessional work with the students on constant bases, not like my previous experience where the paraprofessional would only visit the child for approximately 20 - 30 mins per class period. What I also like was that I witnessed various behavioral changes from students and was able to see in real time how the teacher and paraprofessional handled these behaviors. At first, I did not understand some of the techniques that were being used, but then I would ask Ms. Gohil questions and she
I will be analyzing the character Schmidt in a short clip of flashbacks from the show New Girl; Schmidt is actually one of my favorite characters , but I am now realizing some things about him that I haven 't thought of before. For instance, in "Bachelorette Party," they showed a flashback of "fat" Schmidt in college with his ex-girlfriend before he became a body-obsessed guy and changed completely. Schmidt has also confessed in another episode of being judgmental of others appearances because of his experience as an overweight child that has left him emotionally traumatized. Many of the flashback videos put emphasis on his stomach, showing him having trouble with the topic of girls and eating large amounts of food. The shows flashbacks
Sarcasm is not an effective tool because it creates a victim. What may seem like a small sarcastic remark to the teacher and other classmates is a much bigger deal to the child it was directed at. The teacher and other students will laugh and forget about the remark within a few minutes but it will stick with the learning disabled student for quite possibly the whole day.
For children with learning disabilities, the classroom can be an intimidating place. Renowned learning disabilities expert Richard Lavoie explains why in the film (F.A.T. City) In this film psychologists, teachers, parents, and children including his son are asked to sit on the other side of the teacher's desk. Through a number of simulations and different activities as models (for example, telling a story without using any words that contain the letter N). He even required them to recite aloud and complete timed spelling and writing activities and it appeared as though some of the teacher were starting to get frustrated. Richard Lovie yelled at some of the participants, reprimanded them, mocked them, interrupted them and most of all embarrassed them. By saying ("Are you trying to be funny?" "Try harder!" "Pay attention!" "Why can't you do this? Everyone else can.”) Some of the participants in this film experienced the same frustration, anxiety, pain and tension that children with special needs do on a daily basis.
The video “Beyond F.A.T. City: Look Back, Look Ahead-Conversation about Special Education”is an excellent source to utilize for special education teachers, parents, and general teachers alike. Richard D. Lavoie has a direct approach on helping children with disabilities succeed. The in-depth discussion opens the eyes of teachers and parents regarding what is fair in the classroom, how to bring the concepts of fairness to the home environment, and the importance of not assuming things about individuals.
Inclusive: Ensuring every child or young person has access to learning all areas of the curriculum, identifying areas that a child maybe struggling and adapting provision for this. Nothing should stop a child from learning and developing both emotionally and physically, setting a positive example and modelling good attitudes are all part of inclusive practise. Every child has the right to learn regardless of ability tasks should be set to allow for all learners to understand and to achieve the outcome in a positive way. Making observations helps to reflect on own practise to ensure that the needs of the children are being met and were adaption is needed, making sure this is done.
Inclusion is a process of ‘narrowing the gap between learners with and without special educational needs’1.
This text was written by Jay Mclerney as a part of the novel “Bright Lights, Big City” in 1984. It is a narrative text with a lot of dialogues such as “My birthday is January thirteenth. I will be twenty-nine years old”, “Excuse me, sir, but you’re sitting on me”. These dialogues help animate the text. The text is targeted to everyone in the society and the goal is to entertain the readers and to deliver a message that people should be more open minded to actively help other people in need instead of waiting for another person to do it instead.
I worked as a PPCD aide for Shadow Glen Elementary in the Manor Isd district from March 21- April 22 under the supervision of Mrs. Clack-Jones the PPCD teacher. Our classroom setup was different than most, because our morning classroom consisted of 5-6 kids at a time, ages between 3-5. In the afternoon me and another aide were sent out to a Pre-k class to help out the Pre-k teacher. Both the morning teacher and afternoon teacher had different approaches to gaining the class’s attention. The morning teacher, Mrs. Clack used more than one method to gain the kids attention, since the children in her classroom were either Autistic or have Down syndrome. Mrs. Clack used hand symbols with the Autistic children, which seem to work better then the
A special education teacher and mother of three children, one with an intellectual disability of Down syndrome, diagnosed as mild and high functioning, participated in interviews with the author. The interview questions focused on the respondent’s experience and views on psychoeducational testing, which determines a student’s cognitive abilities and academic performance levels that ultimately yields recommendations for instructional planning (Bell, S. M., 2002). In conclusion, the interview includes a reflection of the two interviews through a compare and contrast as well as how the interviewees’ perspective on psychoeducational testing corresponds to the author’s personal and professional roles.
Within this short essay it will be explaining the support I resied in 3rd grade,
Actually, this was a very successful year with my students. As I mentioned before, I was a mentor to Amy Fitzanko. This was not the first time I mentored a new teacher, but this year was different. Amy was to co-teach with the special education teacher for most of the day and it was not going well. It was difficult advising her on how to handle the situation. The previous year, I only worked with this teacher four periods a week, as she had both 6th and 7th grade students. Her schedule did not allow her to be with the special education students in my room, since I had the aide to work with them in my classes. Mr. Allison, I know you are aware of the situation and without going into detail, this made my job as mentor to Amy very difficult.

Participating in this role play was much easier to handle. Especially when it comes down to me playing in character. I learned with the first set of role plays that I am good at getting assigned a role and playing it well. I like that the scenario was picked out and it was myself and partner responsibility to make the whole role play come together playing the roles of social workers. What we did first was sat down together to figure out the family in which we had. We went through every question on the list answering them together. While we were understanding the family and there strengthens, we were also figuring out ways we could best assist the family. Then we research what intervention method we could best use for the family we had. Once
