Behavior Therapy for ADHD | Child Psychology
 
01:25
Watch more How to Understand Child Psychology videos: http://www.howcast.com/videos/507721-Behavior-Therapy-for-ADHD-Child-Psychology When a child has been diagnosed with ADHD, the first course of treatment is to try to change some of the challenging or functionally impairing behaviors for the child. Some of these behaviors include the child drifting off and not paying attention, or maybe a child that can't sit still long enough to focus on homework or on classroom assignments. It's really important to have the intervention of parents, teachers and the whole school team on board to help modify some of these behaviors. For instance, a teacher might help the child learn how to self-monitor their own actions and provide a little incentive plan to help a child remember not to interrupt, but to raise their hand. It's important to recognize that a lot of the behaviors, or the more negative behaviors of ADHD, can be modified and shaped. And the child can learn to control them. Working with a good health care professional, a child psychologist, or a social worker can definitely help parents come up with an individualized behavior treatment plan to help their child's ADHD symptoms. So these are just some of the behavioral strategies that can be used in decreasing ADHD symptoms.

Early Recognition Of Child Development Problems / Educational Video
 
04:34
Recognizing Child Development Problems / Educational Video. Public domain video courtesy of CDC. It's time to change how we view a child's growth. Do you know all the ways you should measure your childs growth? We naturally think of height and weight, but from birth to 5 years, your child should reach milestones in how he plays, learns, speaks and acts. A delay in any of these areas could be a sign of a developmental problem, even autism. The good news is, the earlier its recognized the more you can do to help your child reach her full potential. Early recognition of developmental disabilities such as autism is key for parents and providers. CDC realized the impact on families and invested in a campaign to help parents measure their children's progress by monitoring how they play, learn, speak and act. What is child development? A child's growth is more than just physical. Children grow, develop, and learn throughout their lives, starting at birth. A child's development can be followed by how they play, learn, speak, and behave. What is a developmental delay? Will my child just grow out of it? Skills such as taking a first step, smiling for the first time, and waving "bye bye" are called developmental milestones. Children reach milestones in playing, learning, speaking, behaving, and moving (crawling, walking, etc.). A developmental delay is when your child does not reach these milestones at the same time as other children the same age. If your child is not developing properly, there are things you can do that may help. Most of the time, a developmental problem is not something your child will "grow out of" on his or her own. But with help, your child could reach his or her full potential! What is developmental screening? Doctors and nurses use developmental screening to tell if children are learning basic skills when they should, or if they might have problems. Your child's doctor may ask you questions or talk and play with your child during an exam to see how he or she learns, speaks, behaves, and moves. Since there is no lab or blood test to tell if your child may have a delay, the developmental screening will help tell if your child needs to see a specialist. Why is developmental screening important? When a developmental delay is not recognized early, children must wait to get the help they need. This can make it hard for them to learn when they start school. In the United States, 17 percent of children have a developmental or behavioral disability such as autism, intellectual disability (also known as mental retardation), or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. In addition, many children have delays in language or other areas. But, less than half of children with problems are identified before starting school. During this time, the child could have received help for these problems and may even have entered school more ready to learn. Talk to your child's doctor or nurse if you have concerns about how your child is developing. If you or your doctor think there could be a problem, you can take your child to see a developmental pediatrician or other specialist, and you can contact your local early intervention agency (for children under 3) or public school (for children 3 and older) for help. To find out who to speak to in your area, you can contact the National Dissemination Center for Children with Disabilities by logging on to http://www.nichcy.org/ or calling 1-800-695-0285. In addition, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has links to information for families at www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/resources/familyresources.htm. If there is a problem, it is very important to get your child help as soon as possible.

The Best Way to Play With Your Kids
 
01:23
Do you know how to play with kids? In this episode of Mom Docs, Dr. Dehra Harris shares a few tips to keep in mind when playing with children. “It’s all about connection,” explains Dr. Harris. When you play with your kids, ask questions and let them know you enjoy the activity. Let them take the lead! Whether you’re cooking or just taking a walk, there are always opportunities for connection when playing with your child.

Subtitles/Closed Captions: Ever wonder how child psychiatrists like to play with kids? There's actually one fundamental difference - we really emphasize making sure your kid takes the lead. It feels like today everything is supposed to be an educational opportunity. It’s teaching counting or it has to be about the letters of the alphabet. But really, play is about connection. So when you're doing a play activity with your kid, sit down at the same level that they are and ask them questions. “Who are you?” “Who should I be?” “Where are we gonna go?” If there are characters, let them sign you who to be and then ask each step what you're going to do next and add-on. So if they tell you, “Yes, you're going to be the superhero. You're going to be Batwoman.” Then you say, “That's awesome. I'm this kind of Batwoman. What should I do next? Do I get to fly?” Let them answer the question and then add that into the play. Not everything has to be educational. One of the most important pieces is that they know that you listen to them and you like enjoy the activity. You don't have to pick things that only they like. It's okay if you do something that simple that you enjoy as well. It can be cooking. It can be going for a walk. And then as you go, you keep finding ways that you can talk to them about the experience.

Social Skills App for Children & Teens with Social & Behaviour Issues including Aspergers & ADD/ADHD
 
05:23
http://www.socialnavigatorapp.com The Social Navigator is a revolutionary social skills app developed to assist children with social and behavioral challenges in adapting their behavior and developing life-long social skills. The Social Navigator allows the user to quickly enter the dynamics of their current social situation and instantly generates corresponding strategies and recommendations, so that the child can get their needs met in a socially acceptable manner. Designed to be both a behavior management device and a teaching tool, The Social Navigator can be used anytime a child is becoming agitated or when their behavior begins to conflict with others. It can also be used to prepare a child for an upcoming event or to review a past problematic situation. What Sets The Social Navigator Apart Traditional interventions concentrate on teaching social skills and self-management skills through stories, formal lessons or reinforcement models. When the child is interacting with others or is experiencing a conflict, they are expected to apply what they have learned. This assumes that the child is calm enough to have the capacity to reason, the discrimination skills to recognize what type of situation they are in and how others are reacting to them, and the planning skills to quickly formulate an appropriate response. All of these are cognitive skills that have been identified as particularly challenging for this type of child. The Social Navigator was developed to address these neurological differences and deficits, not ignore them. Social competence requires that the child engage in specific cognitive tasks. Unlike other social skills apps on the market, every component of The Social Navigator has been designed to support, practice and enhance these cognitive skills. http://www.socialnavigatorapp.com

Autism Service Dog Therapy During Meltdown
 
01:31
"Rebecca had an unexplained meltdown and her poor verbal skills make it difficult, if not impossible, for her to communicate what is ailing her. These video clips were taken over a 20-25 minute period. I took her down to our sensory-friendly playroom to help her regroup. Charlie, her Autism Service Dog, was eager to join us. Petting him with her feet and hands help to subdue Rebecca by providing sensory stimuli and distraction. By focusing on a task, she is less focused on what distressed her. Having her throw a ball for him helps her to engage with Charlie, facilitates the bond between them, works on her motor planning, and assists with her expressive language skills, including giving commands and using a louder assertive voice, both of which are limitations of hers. Finally, some fun social engagement gives both Rebecca and Charlie the satisfaction of a job well done. "- Samantha Find out more at SDWR.ORG

Gifted, creative and highly sensitive children | Heidi Hass Gable | TEDxLangleyED

Being “gifted” often feels far from a good thing, when you’re the one living it. And yet the myth persists that “gifted” is an elitist and privileged label in education. That “those kids” will be fine without any extra programs or supports. After all, what’s the worst that can happen – they get bored? In reality, many of our most vulnerable learners are those “gifted” kids who know they just don’t “fit it.” In our rush to identify and label children for purposes of funding and organizing our educational services most efficiently, we’re missing the ground level, actionable and everyday needs of an entire grouping of needy kids. Our most gifted, sensitive and creative students are our canaries in the coal mine; they are more sensitive to the world around them and the reactions we see in them can teach us what our education system needs to be, believe, include and stop. As is often the case, what is necessary for some is beneficial to all. Heidi approaches our education system from multiple perspectives. First and foremost, she is the mother of three amazing, gifted, creative and/or highly sensitive children! Heidi also spent almost six years as president of the City of Coquitlam‘s District Parent Advisory Council, attending countless advisory committees and working to build relationships between parents and teachers. And finally, she has worked with many passionate educators as an edtech consultant – participating in technology planning, facilitating dialogue and implementing technology to support student learning, communication and relationship building. She is an idealist, geek and deceptively social introvert. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community.

A Frontline to ADHD
 
01:47
With the new school year in full swing, many parents may be heading to their pediatrician’s office looking for insights about their child’s behavior. “They’ve been told the child might have ADHD, they have severe anxiety disorder. They’re so anxious that they can’t pay attention in the classroom,” says Dr. Martin Sherman, who is a pediatrician with Lee Memorial Health System. Seeing children in a different environment than home, teachers are often a frontline to ADHD. In making a clinical diagnosis, doctors look at behavior in a variety of settings and ask questions. “Are they succeeding in school? Are they succeeding with their peers? And are they succeeding at home? If you’ve got two out of three or three out of three that they’re having trouble with you know that’s time to probably get help,” says Dr. Sherman. A recent CDC report finds 11% of our kids have a diagnosis of ADHD. One thing that stands out is that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is not one-size fits all. Each child should be evaluated as an individual, which may take a team approach. “Kids are having problems in school and it’s now our job to figure out what those problems might be. They would have a pediatrician, they might have a developmentalist, they might have a psychologist, they might have a teacher. Each with a slightly different slant on the problem,” says Dr. Sherman. Based on an accurate diagnosis, doctors craft an action plan using behavior therapy, medications or both. “Each one of them has a different therapeutic formula. How we approach them and what the solution is for that problem or child,” says Dr. Sherman. With dedication and homework, children with ADHD can be successful at home and at school.

Dealing with anxiety is tough enough, but what's even worse is when people don't understand it.

It makes coping with anxiety much harder. In this video we will talk about 13 things people don't realize you do because of your anxiety. Generally speaking, people with anxiety do certain things to overcome their anxiety. The feeling my last for a short time, but it is needed.

How to Deal with a Mentally Ill Parent
 
06:57
Growing up with a parent who has a mental illness can be hard. It can be common for our needs to be neglected, and we may even feel that we have to compete with their symptoms in order to receive the care we need. The most common issue having a mentally ill parent causes is fear and shame. Many reporting that they never knew when their parent would be having a good day or a bad day. Also, not wanting others in their life to know that their parent is ill or even if they are receiving help. It can also cause us to fear starting our own family in case we pass on the genes of the mental illness to our own children. Another issue having a mentally ill parent can cause is that we have to raise ourselves. Many parents who are depressed or even those with bipolar disorder may not be well enough to care for us when we are little. Therefore, if we are the oldest child we may become parentified, taking care of our younger siblings and miss out on having a childhood altogether. As a side note, there are some positive components to having a mentally ill parent. A research study out of the University of Newcastle found that those who grew up in these types of families were more empathic, compassionate, and resilient. Emotional incest is also very common because if our parents stayed together, the “healthy” parent could count on us for love and support. Now just to make sure we all understand, emotional incest (otherwise known as covert incest) is not a sexual thing, however, it’s a type of abuse in which a parent looks to their child for the emotional support that would be normally provided by another adult. As I am sure you can see, having a parent with a mental illness can lead to repeated trauma. Many of my patients who lived in this type of home, never knew when they would be yelled at, beaten, or simply frightened by the actions of their parent. This can lead us to getting a diagnosis of C-PTSD, struggling with insomnia, hypervigilance, and anxiety. This can mean that we isolate as a way to ensure we are safe and okay, or even being a great chameleon with others so that we don’t stand out. Here are ways to deal with it: 1. Get out! Save up money, call that aunt, friend, grandparent or whomever you can to get you out of that house asap. Also, by moving out, you are taking away the potential stress of having to care for you (even if they aren’t they may feel pressure to try). So save up money, ask other family members or friends, do whatever you can to get out asap! 2. Get professional support. There are school counselors, EAPs, free clinics, etc. Speak up and reach out for some support. Since trauma is so common among those who grew up with a mentally ill parent, the sooner we start unpacking all that we have been through the sooner we will start feeling better. 3. Support groups!! Al-Anon or even just the family groups at local hospitals, or even caretaker groups can help sometimes. The more we talk about what we went through, share our story and receive help, the sooner we start feeling better. 4. If it’s safe, know that you can re-engage with your parent. But first work with your therapist to figure out what you are expecting and what you believe they are able to give. Setting our expectations low and making them achievable for our parent only makes things easier and prevents any further upset or trauma. Know that this video isn’t meant to demonize parents with mental illnesses, but when we don’t get the treatment that we need, it can harm those around us. Especially those who depend on us for care and support. Moving out and moving on doesn’t make you a bad child, it makes you resilient.

Education Assistants - A Guide
 
06:48
Education Assistants work in schools such as kindergartens, primary schools, high schools and special needs centres. Education Assistants work under the guidance and instruction of teachers. They can work with a single student for most of the day or float in a class or a number of classes helping many different students. Education Assistants or EAs for short can also be called integration aides, teacher aides, support workers, teacher assistants, Aboriginal and Indigenous Education Officers or AIEOs, Home Economic Assistants, or school support officers. Some of the main tasks of an EA includes: - Helping individual students with activities and learning - Helping small groups of students with activities and learning - Helping students with core skills such as reading, writing and numeracy - Helping students who have learning difficulties, a disability or a disorder - Helping the teacher with behaviour management, ensuring that students are on task - Helping the teacher with activities such as cleaning and preparing resources - Ensuring that students are safe at all times Education Assistants are most often employed to work with students who need additional support in learning or due to a disability or behavioural issues. EAs may also work in specialist positions such as in literacy programs or youth at risk programs. To obtain work as an EA you will need to have the following: - A working with Children Check - Usually a police clearance is also required - A relevant qualification such as the Certificate III in Disability or Certificate III in Education Support - A suitable demeanour, attitude and presentation to work in a school environment - A love of working with children and other people in a team environment - A good quality resume and cover letter Education Assistants undertake many community service work tasks including but not limited to: - Working with parents and guardians on a daily basis - Assisting with case management (IEPs and IBPs) - Organising community events such as excursions and fates - Assisting vulnerable groups of people such as low-socio economic - Ensuring abuse and neglect is reported to supervisors - Obtaining funding such as grants from government departments or local businesses - Organising and assisting with events such as art displays - Working with local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people - Assisting with a range of disabilities and disorders - Researching and informing clients of support services and networks - Liaising with community groups - Liaising with specialist case workers such as psychologists and teachers - Managing behaviour and learning - Planning activities and creating resources Education assistants often work with children with disabilities including but not limited to: - Autism Spectrum Disorder - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - Dyslexia - Processing disorders - Developmental delay disorders - Foetal Alcohol Syndrome - Oppositional Defiance Disorder - Cerebral palsy - Mental health - Fragile X - Downs Syndrome It is generally easy to find casual and part time work as an education assistant by putting your name down at all schools in your local area. This often leads to more permanent employment. Many education assistants work part time. When looking for work, don’t forget special needs schools which are schools within the main school that even have their own Principal, teachers and administration staff. Over 90% of people who enrol in a course to become an education assistant are female and are often mothers who are looking for family friendly work hours. Depending on the course and level, education assistants learn the following: - Safety including duty of care laws - Education policy and regulations - Supporting students literacy and numeracy learning - Instructional techniques (how to help students learn) - Techniques for working with a diverse range of people - Behaviour management techniques - Developmental domains such as cognitive, language and social development - Basics of and techniques for working with specific disabilities and disorders - Creating activities and basic planning - Working with Individual Education Plans (IEPs) and Individual Behaviour Plans (IBPs) - Early Years Learning Framework implementation Working in the education sector is challenging, rewarding and is a never ending learning curve.

ADHD & Military Families: Resources for Service Members
 
01:15:49
When a child has ADHD and one or both parents are in military service, finding the right doctor and the right supportive services can be much more than challenging. Following the parent or parents in service to a new state or a different country can mean leaving health care providers, supportive services and educational accommodation plans behind. Where can a military parent turn for help? What resources are available? Heather Hebdon, founder of Specialized Training of Military Parents (STOMP) (full name hyperlink: http://www.stompproject.org/about.asp) will discuss available resources, educational rights and how to find help when one or both parents are active service members during this Ask the Expert Webcast for military parents. Medical, educational and supportive services may be differently available to service members' families. In addition to the needs posed by ADHD, families cope with deployments, changing work schedules and stresses not experienced by their civilian counterparts. Ms. Hebdon will cover the basics of finding help for children affected by ADHD and co-occurring conditions and take questions from participants on STOMP is a federally funded Parent Training and Information (PTI) Center established to assist military families who have children with special education or health needs and is funded through a grant from the U.S. Department of Education. -~-~~-~~~-~~-~- Please watch: "Strategies for Promoting Positive Behavior in Children with ADHD and Their Siblings" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M7OcAnIgCY -~-~~-~~~-~~-~-
