I have also worked with his running technique to teach him how to run faster and more powerful with the use of his arms. We do basic exercises to get stronger as well, like push-ups and sit-ups. I worked with him through daily assignments, especially in the summer. I have learned much about this disorder, its symptoms, common characteristics, and medications. Russ has given me the opportunity to gain many years of creative teaching experience that will be invaluable throughout my life.
Dual diagnosis refers to the co-existence of a developmental disability (DD) and a mental health problem, and those who present with this type of diagnosis receive support from a number of different experts on CAMH’s interdisciplinary team. Before any client is admitted to the inpatient unit, the team attempts to collect as much information about the individuals as possible (i.e. past diagnoses, family history, psychological/behaviour assessments, etc.) and document this information on their online database and in separate client binders located on the unit. In order to build a rapport with each other clients, I started by first reading each of their binders and files. This information gave me a better understanding of their strengths and needs, as well as the best ways to communicate. For example, client PC, presenting with ASD, DD, and ADHD, was mostly nonverbal and communicated by touching your hand and guiding you or by using loud vocalizations. While becoming familiar with his file, I learned that he could read, write and understand basic math equations at a grade 3 level. Using this information, I prepared a package filled with different worksheets and sat with him in the lounge while he completed them. Although he was nonverbal, he would communicate that he wanted me to mark his math homework by passing me the sheet and handing

After enrollment into the program was complete, HARRIS nor MCGHEE presented HILL with any questions of how the program worked, timesheet approvals or submissions. HILL monitored any changes in DANIEL’s need for services through face to face monthly visits which lasted about 40 minutes. Changes in the need for services may be due to an admission to the hospital, a long-term nursing facility or relocation to another state.

In the development, there were several services provided to Ryan. First, at a very young age, there was an occupation therapist. The OT was in place to help Ryan with his communication skills. He did have a language delay but it wasn’t like he couldn’t speak because the only two words he had trouble saying was banana and balloon. Only those two words he had trouble communicating with others. Another service that was provided was Tomatis therapy that it’s a listing based therapy. It has proven effectiveness in children and adults with various learning disabilities. The goal was to help Ryan became less
They reported that he presents very similar in each location. They have become increasingly concerned with his willingness to participate in school as well as his behaviors outside of school. Max has struggled with attending class, maintaining consistent homework patterns, and meeting school expectations since his start of DHS. Both of Max’s parents referred to him as a bright and talented child but are concerned that the current school program may not be sufficient to meet his needs. Additionally his family has become increasingly concerned with difficulty Max has demonstrated in following family rules and expectations. This has led to Max having moved in and out of his father's home two times since the start of this school year.
Chronic pain is estimated to affect approximately 18% of adult Australians.6 Symptoms are frequently localised to a particular part of the body (eg vulvodynia, irritable bowel syndrome or chronic low back pain) but can be generalised (eg fibromyalgia). Whatever the location or distribution of pain, it is now thought there is a common central pathology, which helps explain frequently observed comorbid symptoms of multifocal pain, fatigue, sleep disturbance and mood changes.7 There is increased incidence of co-existent pain disorders and women with vulvodynia have a 2–3-fold increase in the likelihood of having another pain condition.8 It is not understood why some individuals develop chronic pain and others do not. It seems that some individuals experience
Observing Ryan for 20 mins at 9 months you can tell Ryan has developed many skills such as motor skills, language skills, and also social/emotional skills. While observing Ryan I observed he has the ability to sit up on his own to either play with his toys or begin to crawl from one place to another to explore around the living room, roll over on his own from stomach to back to drink his bottle of milk and vise versa back to stomach to begin to crawl, uses his weight on his legs to get off the floor and begin to hold onto the sofa for support independently, reaches for objects such as his toys or even objects that aren’t his toys such as the remotes or my book, and Ryan loves to explore different objects using hands and mouth such as grabbing
Creativity is one key aspect of an artist and I strongly agree with Jacob's point that based on the innovation of David Smith, the Cubi XIX was created. Considering Smith's Cubi XIX, I would also mention that a great deal of technical skill was applied. Smith's technical skill was able to combines three geometric figures including cuboid, cube, and a disk that created the Cubic XIX with an angle. Taking into consideration the composition of the artwork, it can be deduced that David Smith took much time to create such a great three dimensional artistic work that is more realistic and have a unique message for viewers.
