Learning Goal: I’m working on a psychology multi-part question and need an explanation and answer to help me learn.Read Chapter 13, pages 384-410 in preparation for this week’s discussion. Have you seen the movie Temple Grandin? Dr. Grandin’s story is a fascinating and inspiring one. She is now a successful adult who has lived with autism all of her life and who grew up in an era when little was known about how to “treat” the disorder or help educate the learner.You may want to view this week’s movie moment about Temple Grandin in preparation for this discussion question. There are two videos there. One is a full lecture; the other is a shorter interview. There is also a recent movie, now available on DVD that has been made with actress Claire Danes playing the role of Temple. I highly recommend the movie especially if you have a child with a learning disability.Let’s discuss: In your initial post, consider and answer these questions: How does rambunctious behavior in a child differ from behavior seen in a child with ADHD of the combined type? Are any symptoms of ADHD, oppositional defiant disorder, or conduct disorder perhaps “normal” for kids? Would you punish a misbehaving child who has a developmental disorder such as Asperger’s or autism the same as you would as a “normal” functioning child with misbehavior? Dr. Grandin talks about the kind of discipline she received as a child in her talks. What do you think?Response to two peers Peers1There are many who are not educated in nor specialize in a profession that allows them to differentiate between a normally active child and a child with a combined type of ADH. For starters, for a child who is normally very active, they usually do not find it hard to self control and function in an age appropriate way and setting; however, for a child with a combined type of ADHD it is extremely difficult to appropriately function, focus and socialize. According to Kearny and Trull, some of the symptoms associated with ADHD are that children often talk all the time, frequently lose important materials necessary for activities, and commonly interrupt people and thier surroundings. Included in this segment of our textbook, they also mention how children with ODD (Oppositional Defiant disorder) and Conduct Disorder present with symptoms such as bullying friends, being angry and arguing with authority regularly. (2015) The previously mentioned symptoms do not necessarily mean that the child has to be or is diagnosed with a mental disorder; this could very well be a “normal child” who is very active and has similar symptoms but is able to self control and function perfectly fine. In addition, I personally would likely punish a student who did not have a behavioral diagnosis and a child who did have a behaviorla diagnosis child with discipline slightly differently because “The benefits of discipline are the same whether kids have special needs or not. In fact, kids who have trouble learning respond very well to discipline and structure. But for this to work, parents have to make discipline a priority and be consistent”. (Hirsch, 2015). Now, with that said, although I would discipline both children, doesn not mean that they would receive the same discipline. Meaning the discipline given would have to be adjusted accordingly to the appropriation of not only the offense, but to the consideration of there being a disorder making different challenges to the diagnosed child vs the undiagnosed child. For example, to graduate high school you must earn your high school diploma by passing your courses and and meeting all credits required. However, you would not expect a student with down syndrome to attend the same classes and complete the same coursework, at the same speed and rate as a student without down syndrome. Instead, the student with down syndrome would have adjustments made to their classroom, atmosphere, courseload, and be provided extra assistance with teachers who specialize in cognitive delays and disorders. However, the students would both graduate on time and recieve the same high school diploma. Therefore, I have the same outlook on discipline with an ADHD child vs non-adhd child. Behaviors would require discipline, but molded and modified appropriatly. This is usally where a it is common for children diagnosed with ADHD to receive a 504 Plan or IEP … That means, if ADHD limits your child’s ability to learn in an educational setting, he may qualify for accommodations or services under Section 504 — things like extended time on tests, cues from the teacher to keep the student focused, and so on. To finalize, I would like to talk about one of the methods of discipline Dr. Grandin received as a child, it is about her punishment after a tantrum was no TV for an entire night. I think this is a method most parents chose because it means taking away something a child really loves and I applaud how her parents were always consistent and she emphasizes on how rules should always consistent.Peers 2 Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness. ADHD often begins in childhood and can continue into adulthood. People with ADHD experience an ongoing pattern of symptoms such as Inattention, Hyperactivity and Impulsivity. People with ADHD mainly have symptoms of inattentionwhile others experience symptoms of hyperactivity-impulsivity and some people might even experience both symptoms. Oppositional defiant disorder is a type of behavior disorder and is mostly diagnosed in children. Children with ODD are uncooperative, defiant and hostile towards authority figures such as parents, teachers and peers. The cause of ODD is yet to be identified, however there are 2 main theories associated as to why this disorder occurs, the first one is the Developmental theory and this theory states that they had problems when they were children or toddlers and had trouble learning to become independent from a parent or a person who they were emotionally attached too. The Learning theory states that the negative symptoms of ODD are learned behaviors and simply mirror the effects of negative reinforcement methods used by a parent or a person in charge. Negative reinforcements increase the child’s ODD behaviors and that is because this behavior allows the child to get what they want, whether it’s attentions or a reaction.I noticed my son at the age of 1 starting to be on the road too “Terrible 2’s” he was starting to explore his environment and want to do what they want to do when they want to do it all subject to his terms, which normal and expected behavior during his stage which lasted until 3 years old. During this stage it is important to pay close attention to the behaviors and moods the child displays because it can be signs mood or conduct disorder. It is my opinion that certain “bad” behaviors are normal for kids because they are growing and wanting to test their limits, however I also believe in time-out and taking his favorite things to show punishment for the “bad” behavior. I believe that in every action there is a consequence whether good or bad. If a child has a developmental disorder such as Asperger’s or autism is misbehaving I would not punish them the same as a “normal” functioning child. I would have to determine the child’s level of functioning and determine the appropriate punishment in accordance with their learning disability. In my opinion I think that it is the child’s best interest to have structure and consistency around them to teach them healthy habits and as Dr. Grandin stated “It is essential for the rules to be consistent at BOTH home and school.
