Personality & Character Disorders Pt 6 - Narcissists & Aggressives | This is the second to last in a series of articles on personality and character. The last two articles (see: Personality & Character Disorders Pt 4: O-C & P-A Types and Personality & Character Disorders Pt 5: O-C & P-A Types in Depth) took a fairly close look at the two personality types that tend to be more “neurotic” than they are impaired in character. But the types we’ll be discussing in this article are generally among the most character disturbed personalities, with one sub-type in particular being the most dangerous and disordered character of all.

Not only have I devoted two books, In Sheep’s Clothing and Character Disturbance largely to helping people understand the most character-challenged personality types, but I’ve also written many online articles about these types of folks, including several on this blog.

The Role of Educators in Preventing and Responding to Child Abuse and Neglect: Chapter 3 - Recognizing Child Abuse and Neglect. Every form of maltreatment (e.g., physical abuse, neglect, sexual abuse, and emotional maltreatment) is inflicted on school-age children.

In addition, many children who live in homes where domestic violence occurs are not only in danger of a misdirected blow, but probably suffer emotional consequences from witnessing this disturbing behavior.9 Knowledgeable educators can pick up indicators of possible maltreatment by observing children's behavior at school, recognizing physical signs, and noticing family dynamics during routine interactions with parents. Physical signs of maltreatment are those that are readily observable. They may be mild or severe, such as numerous, deep bruises or broken bones, or more subtle, such as malnutrition or the wearing of inappropriate clothing (e.g., a lack of warm clothing in winter).

Behavioral indicators may exist independently or may accompany physical indicators. Educators are in an excellent position to notice behavioral indicators. Physical Abuse.

The general public is much more aware of dyslexia and related conditions than they were before the internet became so widely available and it is easy to google dyslexia and find all sorts of checklists and screening suggestions. There is still no totally accepted definitive ‘diagnosis’ of the condition, but anyone who has problems with reading, writing or spelling is eager to find out whether dyslexia explains their issues.

A good initial item on the B.D.A. website, Contributary Factors is a good place to start. Traditionally it has been the role of the Educational Psychologist to provide proof that a child or adult has dyslexic learning differences. Especially for the severe dyslexic, this is still the essential route to gain the recognition that provides maximum support in school, college or the workplace. 1. Class-wide quick screening.

Many have attempted to identify the skills important for a learner today in this era of the 21st century (I know it is an overused phrase). I have an affinity towards the skills identified by Tony Wagner: Critical thinking and problem-solvingCollaboration across networks and leading by influenceAgility and adaptabilityInitiative and entrepreneurialismEffective oral and written communicationAccessing and analyzing informationCuriosity and imagination Today I viewed a slideshow created by Gallup entitled, The Economics of Human Development: The Path to Winning Again in Education.

Some other ones that I believe important based on what I hear at conferences, read via blogs and other social networks include: Grit Resources for Educators: Resilience Hope and Optimism. Interactive LD Checklist | Signs of Learning Disabilities. It's not always easy to recognize learning disabilities. If you or someone you know displays the signs described in our LD Checklist, it's time to seek additional information or help. The following checklist is designed as a helpful guide and not as a tool to pinpoint specific learning disabilities.

The more characteristics you check, the more likely that the individual described is at risk for (or shows signs of) learning disabilities. When filling out this form, think about the person's behavior over at least the past six months. And when you're done, don't wait to seek assistance from school personnel or other professionals.

Get Started More About the Checklist Most people have problems with learning and behavior from time to time. Keep in mind that LD is a term that describes a heterogeneous ("mixed bag") group of disorders that impact listening, speaking, reading, writing, reasoning, math, and social skills.

Access Arrangements Access Arrangements are pre-examination adjustments for candidates based on evidence of need and normal way of working.

Access Arrangements fall into two distinct categories: some arrangements are delegated to centres, others require prior JCQCIC awarding body approval. Access Arrangements allow candidates/learners with special educational needs, disabilities or temporary injuries to access the assessment without changing the demands of the assessment. For example, readers, scribes and Braille question papers.

In this way Awarding Bodies will comply with the duty of the Equality Act 2010 to make 'reasonable adjustments'. Reasonable Adjustments The Equality Act 2010 requires an Awarding Body to make reasonable adjustments where a disabled person would be at a substantial disadvantage in undertaking an assessment. A reasonable adjustment for a particular person may be unique to that individual and may not be included in the list of available Access Arrangements.

Accommodating Math Students with Learning Disabilities. By Rochelle Kenyon There may be more learning-disabled students in your math class than you realize. If you have learners who read numbers backwards, have trouble telling time, confuse part whole relationships, have difficulty keeping score in a game, and have difficulty remembering math facts, concepts, rules, formulas, sequences, and procedures, they may be learning disabled.

According to the National Adult Literacy and Learning Disabilities Center, "it is estimated that 50 percent to 80 percent of students in Adult Basic Education and literacy programs are affected by learning disabilities," (1995, p. 1). The implications of such a staggering statistic for the adult basic education (ABE) teacher are worth further investigation. In this article, we will look at some common profiles of learning disabled learners and strategies you can use in your math class to meet their specific learning needs.

See the left-hand menu for the current list of sets available. READ ME FIRST: These cards are excellent image quality and as such some of the files are quite large (1mb~4mb.) I suggest looking at the hand out first. If the material is something you'd like to put together, then take a look at the other files. This will save you a lot of time. Let me knowif you have any download/file problems or check the FAQ forums. About the flash card sets: There are some multilingual handouts in French, German, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, Russian, and Portuguese for teachers of other foreign languages. The pictures were all put together with children in mind. The printable flash cards and game cards do not have the vocabulary written on them.

Large flash cards do include articles at times. : These contain text in each slide.
