Howard County, “Emergent Literacy Ideas for Complex Learners”

October 11, 2018 @ 4:00 pm - 9:00 pm UTC+0

Emergent literacy requires a student to be an ACTIVE learner, have ways to communicate (not necessarily verbal), and have a trusting relationship with at least one person. His or her environment must provide many experiences for concept and vocabulary development, opportunities for joint mutual attention and use the learner’s preferences to make connections. Come find ways to put this all together for your student with complex needs and who may be communicating at a pre-symbolic level.

 

This presentation will discuss reasons and strategies to connect communication, object schedules, and literacy related experiences to daily routines and regular school activities. Specific attention will be given to students with sensory loss combined with physical challenges and cognitive delays. 

 

Please come with a student in mind. 

Bring a copy of his/her IEP and daily schedule!

Demystifying Developmental Disabilities: fetal alcohol syndrome

What is fetal alcohol syndrome Jessica had some difficulty this morning. She woke up sweaty and dehydrated. She thought it would be a good idea to wear her favorite flannel footie pajamas to bed even though it’s the middle of August in Miami. On the way to breakfast, She slipped down a few stairs, twisting her ankle and stubbing her toe. The feet in her pajamas were too big and she tripped. She insisted on getting the larger size even though it didn’t fit. She did try to hold onto the railing on the way down the stairs but her grip is...

What is bulimia?

Bulimia is not what you think It’s not uncommon for people to really misunderstand eating and body dysmorphic disorders. In all honesty, it confusion kinda makes sense. Food is necessary for survival. Why would anyone purge themselves of a perfectly good meal when there are starving people in the world, right? A slim figure is considered ideal and something to sacrifice for in order to achieve it, right? Avoiding food makes sense and it’s what were supposed to do… right? Do you see the contradiction here? This is...

INDIVIDUALIZED EDUCATION PROGRAM

Posted by on December 20, 2019 in IEP | 0 comments

Individualized Education Program gives these special children all the tools they need to excel in school. It is a document that outlines the student’s educational needs and any extra educational items or services they’ll need for this program to be successful. Having a child who is different from his or her peers and has a harder time at school is hard on every parent. You worry about a lot of things like acceptance, your child’s ability to cope, and make friends. But most importantly, you worry about your child’s...

Asperger’s can not stop Time’s Person of the Year: Greta Thunberg

Asperger’s does not limit potential Our babies diagnosed with Asperger’s, and those self-advocates diagnosed with Asperger’s, don’t look at life in terms of limits. We look at possibilities and potential. We seek out ways we can contribute to this world and make it better not only for us but for others. Special needs is a misnomer. What it really means is our community needs are special compared to the neuro-typical and non-disabled community. But let’s set aside the comparison for a moment and focus on how much...

Understand the Major Learning Disorders

Understand the Major Learning Disorders Starting the school stage is a challenging stage for any child to overcome learning disorders. Besides being the beginning of a new routine. There is also the difficulty and awkwardness that can come with meeting the other students and the teachers. There is also the frustration that the little ones can feel taking on new tasks and homework. Is the learning of children the same? One of the details that should not go unnoticed is how the learning process can differ from child to child. There are...

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X Syndrome

Fragile X syndrome is a genetic condition that causes intellectual and behavioral changes. This condition is the most diagnosed genetic cause for intellectual disability; second only to Downs Syndrome. In the 1970s, the genetic abnormalities associated with the fragility of a segment of the X chromosome were identified, which led to the discovery of the condition called fragile X syndrome. But it was not until the 1990s that the cause of this fragility was discovered a mutation in the FMR1 gene. Once this gene is altered, it no longer passes...

Demystifying developmental disabilities: Say no to the “R word”, understanding intellectual disability

Demystifying developmental disabilities: Say no to the “R word”, understanding intellectual disability What is the R word Some words can succinctly describe a situation or condition, while others can slice through a family’s soul when it’s used to describe a loved one. As our understanding of disabilities has evolved, how we describe conditions has changed over the years as well. Terms and labels we have used in the past have not only fallen out of favor but are now considered derogatory and offensive. One such term, retarded, that has been...

Demystifying developmental disabilities: What is cerebral palsy?

DEVELOPMENTAL DISABILITIES EXPLAINED, WHAT IS CEREBRAL PALSY A developmental disability (DD) is any number of congenital (from birth) physical, learning, language, and behavior conditions. DD impairs daily functioning such as speaking, walking, and motor coordination. Although the symptom severity can improve overtime, these conditions last the person’s lifetime. Because DD occurs before and during the developmental period, symptoms may go unnoticed until delays meeting developmental milestones are noticed. Keep in mind, that everyone...
