1.1 Describe the causes and effects of complex disabilities and conditions. Mental health issues ranging from the doubts and uncertainties have become a part of daily routine, towards serious long term situation which can be very complex for managing and having a diversifying impact on the overall live of the people. The usual child health leads to contribute towards overall development (Watson & Le Couteur, 2011). Therefore it is important to take special care of people with complex disability as they turn out to be sensitive enough about the situation and environment they are living in. 1.2 What are the typical impacts of these on children and young people?
Many families living in a state of depression, because of their children, and what people talk about them. View compassion and sadness on children’s non-natural difficult for them more than their condition (Patrick). Moreover, families felt guilty because they gave birth to a child with defects, and they cannot save them. Furthermore, their genetic diseases children will also develop other illnesses such as: Autism, schizophrenia, and depression. Schizophrenia, often it falls under genetic disease, but there are also environmental factors than can cause this disease, it has been found that life factors possible increase in the infection rate for schizophrenia personality, and autism disease (Progress in Neurobiology, 2011).
Autism- a mental condition, present from early childhood, characterized by difficulty in communicating and forming relationships with other people and in using language and abstract concepts. Temple Grandin is most effectively when finding empathy for people who are different from a lot of people, but not less she should still be treated with equal respect. From the book “Temple Grandin” by Sy Montgomery, she writes a lot of quotes that makes the reader show empathy towards Temple. One of them is that “‘Temple has set a record!’ her father roared. ‘She’s been failing almost every subject, and now she gets kicked out of school!
Because autism is such a huge part of who I am as an individual, autism has impacted my education in many different ways. Ultimately, this presents itself in two major ways: the way in which my thought process is different from my peers and my ability to engage in and understand social situations which greatly affect my educational experience. As Temple Grandin describes it, autistic people tend to
Week 3 Question: Student will discuss family problems that may warrant external intervention. The modern day family has different principles, background, and values; with these components come with the dealing of different attitudes and personalities. Family issues can manifest in the healthiest of families, resulting in frustration and painful interactions among family members. Family issues may warrant external intervention may result from parental conflict and signs of neglect and any form of abuse. Parental conflict in the home is one major issue that can attract external attention and warrant external intervention from the Department of Children and Family Services.
In contrast, a family that is broken by divorce, desertion, separation, or death, and that function inadequately as a social unit, is handicapped in carrying on its responsibilities toward the children. The effects of broken and inadequate homes in relation to delinquency can be ascertained most adequately by contrasting such conditions with the influence of family’s life at its best. Children in different family
Introduction: According to the Red Cross movement Child abuse and neglect is any physical, psychological that causes harm or emotional damage to a child. Child abuse and neglect are topics that have been debated throughout history due to the diverse views on its legality that emerge when the form is brought into discussion. Brain development is the most important aspect in a child’s life and it’s a major factor in determining the person he/she will later become. Evidence suggests that, it’s not rather the type of abuse, but the levels of stress triggered by the abuse alongside the areas of the brain that are affected during the child’s development that are the major factors in the negative effects of mental upbringing and social maturity.
More specifically, in a sample of 33 families of children with autism, Gray (2003) looked at the gender role differences that parents displayed in the coping strategies that they used to come to terms with their child’s highfunctioning autism or Asperger’s syndrome diagnosis. Mothers in this study voiced the disparate struggles they faced in caring for their child with Asperger’s syndrome, such as the intention to work outside of the home, but had the inability to do so because of the immense demands that their family life places on their responsibility inside of the home (Gray, 2003). Contrastingly, fathers felt less impacted by their child’s autism than the mothers of their children, especially because of the fathers’ often indirect role in the care of the child (Gray, 2003). Corroborating with this notion, Gray (1993) suggests that it is the mothers who take on more responsibility for the family care, where fathers are more on the peripheral, as “reserve source of support for their wives” (Gray, 2003, p. 635). Using discourse analysis in a qualitative study of stigma as experienced by
Regarding the issue of Autism, there are families throughout the world that have members of their family affected by this disability. The early behavioral treatment for the affected one involves the entire family working together with a team of professionals. The U.S Department of Health have made big changes to help Americans with Autism. The Autism Cares Act of 2014 was a bill that reauthorized research and educational activities related to Autism. There are also Autism insurance reform laws that have been enacted in 46 out of the 50 states, which makes insurance companies have plans that can cover autism treatments.
Lansford et al, 2002). Studies centered around child abuse have shown that the emotional distress caused during the time they were abused often follows them into their later years of adulthood. During childhood years, however, the biggest causation of abuse was the overuse of physical and emotional punishment instead of a strongly implemented rewards system during discipline. Though rewards are commonly used in school systems to encourage good behavior in children, the most common form of discipline in households are punishments. Because of this, the abuse, often found in the overuse of punishments such as coercion, public humiliation, spanking or other types of physical harming, time out or confinement, and yelling, can have long term effect and are more likely leave emotional
These situations are highly-dysfunctional and disrupt a child 's normal development. As a child protective advocate, I realize that verbal abuse requires immediate intervention, and possible removal from the family as well. The Child Abuse & Neglect Manual is very thorough, and discusses parenting coping skills at length. According to DePanfilis (2006), many parents themselves do not have cognitive insight about their behavior and/or the normal developmental phases of childhood (DePanfilis, 2006, p. 47). This manual will be a great resource for practice, as it identifies many variables of emotional, verbal, and physical abuse.
In the article “Why Pre-K Is Critical to Closing the Achievement Gap,” by Ellen Frede and W. Steven Barnett provides an overview of the problems in the U.S education system. According to the statistics and researches the U.S education system has a lot of problems compare to some other country such as Finland, Shanghai, Singapore and Norway. The achievement gap is a complex and controversial issue because all pre-school program are not the same and this diversity create a lot of achievement gap in the U.S education system. In the second article “Increasing Family Engagement in Early Childhood Programs,” by Jamilah R. Jor’dan, Kathy Goetz Wolf and Anne Douglass talk about the importance of the family engagement in early childhood education. This article give as an overview about the Strengthening Families Illinois Program, a successful program that provide and encourage the importance of relationship between kids and families.
Children are put into foster care for many different reasons that include physical, sexual, emotional, or psychological abuse, or neglect (Leve et al., 2012). Regardless of the situation, removal from parents can affect immediate and future mental and developmental health of the child (Bruskas, 2008). This problem is important because children around the world are diagnosed, and most of them will not be properly cared for. Adolescents between the ages of 10 and 19 have a higher prevalence of poor health, and studies have shown that 12% of foster kids do not receive regular health care (Gramkowski et al., 2009). There are little improvements to the system, and awareness would give enough attention to cause change.
