Mainstream Teachers Train to Educate Autistic Children

Published by under Autism

Childhood is a time of exploration that for some children and parents proves especially onerous. That’s most poignantly the case in families where a child has been diagnosed with Autism. The disorder renders especially difficult a child’s ability to communicate and to interact socially, which in turn brings forth significant social and educational challenges.

Before recent federal regulations were set in place, kids with Autism were taught in classrooms set apart from those designated for their non-Autistic peers. The new laws require that Autistic students be taught in regular classrooms as part of a school’s general population. It’s hoped that by being in regular classrooms children with the disorder will receive an education that’s equal to that obtained by their non-Autistic peers. Continue Reading »

Suspect ADHD in Your Toddler? Proceed With Caution

Published by under ADHD,Chirldren

Finding out a child has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) can be very stressful for parents. But not having the tools needed to cope with that child’s struggles will result in even greater stress as the child grows up. However, if you suspect you child may have ADHD, and he or she is still a toddler, proceed with caution. Growing toddlers are known for their hyperactive nature, and because impulsive and inattentive behavior is so commonly observed in them, diagnosing real cases of ADHD in those under six can be difficult. Child psychologists will tell you that certain ADHD behaviors in preschoolers are “developmentally appropriate” for given situations. Continue Reading »

Published by under Behavior,Chirldren

Some say the Terrible Two’s are the most taxing time to be a toddler’s parent. But even one year later, the road of parenting can be rough, which is not to say that these wearying periods are completely bereft of wonderment or joy.

Parents, as it’s always been the case, must get their bearings together and tough it out; age three is when children are privy to key developmental lessons, and parental guidance is crucial. Helping them navigate this time with grace will be rewarding for the both of you. At three, kids gain a more concrete sense of their own individuality, and it’s also during this period that their curiosity about the world expands astronomically. They’ll be posing questions left and right. Continue Reading »

Urie Bronfenbrenner and his Theories

Published by under Chirldren

urie-bronfenbrenner     Urie Bronfenbrenner (1917-2005) developed the ecological systems theory to  explain how everything in a child and the child’s environment affects how a child grows and develops.    

As we have learned from our text, according to Bronfenbrenner , environment and all the layers of it have a huge impact on a child’s development and the process. Child’s own biology is a primary environment fueling his or her development. While growing up and going process of the development, the child’s immediate family, community, environment, and the societal landscapes steers his/her development. However, we cannot just pay closer attention the child’s immediate family and forget about the interaction which the child is having of the larger environment as well. Continue Reading »

Top Common Cosmetic Surgery Complications

Published by under Health

Article by Dr. Jan Zemplenyi

Some medical operations are strongly suggested by doctors because they feel the surgeries could help your health and increase your quality of life. If you decide not to have the operations, your conditions may worsen and ultimately become life-threatening.

There are other surgeries, however, that are not as crucial and are mainly done for aesthetic purposes. Cosmetic surgeries can be performed on a number of body parts and can involve all sorts of alterations. Changing the nose or shape of your nose, cheeks, and breasts are quite common. Nowadays, cosmetic surgeries are quite safe but that does not mean that you should not be aware of the various complications that could come. No surgery is 100% safe but some are close. Below are some of the most common cosmetic surgery complications.


Perhaps one of the most common complications from any type of surgery is scarring. Since surgeons will need to cut into the skin to make alterations, whether that be adding, removing, or reshaping, there is a possibility that patients could be left with marks where incisions were made. Since cosmetic surgeries usually performed to enhance one’s appearance, these unwanted marks may cause discomfort. Talk to your surgeon to learn about how he or she will prevent scarring and what steps can be taken to reduce the appearance of them if they were to show.


Surgeons usually take certain steps to make sure their patients heal properly after a surgery. That being said, there is still a possibility that you can get infected after following the postoperative steps. Some infections can be internal and tough to spot, which is why you should schedule checkups to pay close attention to how your body is recovering.

Why a Juvenile Boot Camp Isn’t Your Only Option for Therapy

Written by: Wood Creek Academy

Summary: While you may think a juvenile boot camp is the only option for a rebellious teenager, there are other ways that you can help get through to him.

Teenagers often exhibit behavioral problems during their “rebellious” stage of their life. This can lead to a fragmented household, daily arguments, and even financial difficulties. Honestly, you’ve them all over the media, and now you’re thinking about sending your child to a boot camp for boys. But is it the right decision to do so?

Alternative Options

Know that you’re not alone. Many families look to these troubled teen programs to help “rehabilitate” their child and enable him to grow into his own. These boot camps are one of the first programs that often come to mind. Now, it’s not unusual to send your child away, especially when he’s displaying a significant shift in behavior and attitude.

Most people that you discuss these problems with will often tell you to either “stay strong” or “hang in there”. But, how long can you do such a thing for? There needs to be a solution to these issues. Focus on what’s causing your child to give off such a negative vibe. Is he hanging out with the wrong group of friends? Is he being bullied in such a way that now he’s coming to terms with “paying back” his former adversaries? Speak to him and let him know that you’ll be there to support him no matter what. Children often make mistakes, but it’s these mistakes that make him into a man. Despite what others may believe is best for you, only you know how you can get through to your child. And, if it goes to the extent where you’re looking into a variety of wilderness therapy programs, so be it – just do not use this as a threat for conformity.
