Other Health Impaired- ADHD in Early Childhood Education


The causes of ADHD are not well understood, many children with ADHD struggle in the classroom. Their inability to stay on task, impulsive behavior, and fidgeting impair their ability to learn and increase the likelihood of unsatisfactory interactions with others. Children with ADHD who are not served under IDEA are receiving services under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. Schools may be required to develop and implement accommodation plans to help students with ADHD succeed in the general education classroom under the Section 504 Rehabilitation Act. There are many assistive technology devices and systems that are made available for children with ADHD; such as talking books, children’s talking calculators, and software based lessons for reading, writing and arithmetic.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most commonly diagnosed mental health disorders, occurring in 3% to 7% of school-age children. Approximately 5.4 million children ranging from ages 4-17 at some point have been diagnosed with ADHD. Many students with ADHD are easily distracted and struggle to focus their attention on assigned task. ADHD is a condition of the brain that affects a person’s ability to pay attention. It is most common in school-aged children. ADHD is presented in boys three times more than it is presented in girls. There are three subtypes of ADHD: predominately hyperactive/ impulsive type- does not show significant inattention, predominately inattentive type- does not show significant hyperactive-impulsive symptoms, and combined type- displays both inattentive and hyperactive-impulsive symptoms. ADHD's core symptoms—inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity—make meeting the daily rigors of school challenging (Zentall, 1993). These symptoms must occur in two or more…...

Discuss the Potential Impact of Public Health Initiatives (Such as Healthy People 2010 and Others) on U.S. Health Care Systems

...Discuss the potential impact of public health initiatives (such as Healthy People 2010 and others) on U.S. health care systems In March 23, 2010, Congress passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA) to offer adequate health services for everyone including a uninsured person. It is an affordable solution of the problem that a large amount of Americans do not have health insurance plans. Americans will fully receive benefits from the law by 2014. It is the effective law to achieve optimum health care service to resolve and prevent perceived deficiencies in healthcare delivery. However, PPACA does not automatically guarantee the high quality and access to health care. The quality of health care in America is far behind compared to many foreign countries. Most of Americans struggle with health care insurances, because the private health care insurance in the U.S. is way more expensive. And, it is not certain if the health care reform is successful. The health insurance policies are too complicated for consumers to choose a suitable plan. Even though the U.S. government is on the right track to work PPACA, Americans still deserve a better health care program. The U.S. does not provide a universal health care system. In my opinion, the federal or at least each state government should provide a universal public health care system. Here are the reasons why the U.S. needed the health care reform and explanation how the U.S. is moving forward to the right......

Visually Impaired

...For this activity, I put on a blindfold before doing one of my morning routines. What I chose to do was feed my dogs. It has been a part of my morning routine. I get up and get their bowls out of their cage and put pallets in it and put it back and then I would take out their water dispenser and fill it water and give it back to them. As I was preparing to do all of these with a blindfold on, I was taking a mental picture of my room and where I will be passing through. When I finally put the blindfold on, my other senses heightened instantly. I walked slowly to the door and opened it, I’m sort of happy that I did not bump into anything on my way to the door. When I opened the door, I had to go to the place where we store their food. My house has a lot of corners so I was afraid to bump into things. I did eventually bump into something before reaching where I was going. When I finally got there, it was hard to find the container of their food because it was placed on top of the cupboard. I eventually found it and slowly took it down very carefully. I poured pallets into each of their bowls and I was pretty sure that the amount in each bowl was not equal. I closed the container and just left it there. Got back to my room and bumped into a few things again. As I was locating their cage, it was not really a hard task because they kept on barking because they saw that food was coming their way. What was hard was looking for the lock on their cage. But I eventually did the task......

Ethics of Terminating Impaired Infants

...Ashley Reffey Liberty University HLTH 551 Dr. Dempsey December 1, 2013                     Introduction             Biblical principles and ethical guidelines attempt to provide sound reasoning regarding aborting an impaired/handicapped fetus. Medical advancements have provided parents with the opportunity to determine if their child will be born with certain defects. Upon learning that their child might be impaired, some parents choose to abort the fetus.  This paper will discuss why terminating an impaired fetus is considered sinful and is not condoned by the Bible.  Subsequently, the topic of why neither physicians nor parents have the authority to decide whether or not to abort an impaired fetus will be further discussed.  Provide a clear Christian position regarding the treating and/or the terminating of impaired infants.  Please provide clear biblical support and rationale.             Unborn babies, regardless of being impaired/handicapped, are human beings and have an equal right to life just as babies who are born fully functioning.  Abortion, regardless of the circumstance, is considered murder in the eyes of God.  This is displayed by Genesis 9:6 which states, “Whoever takes the life of a man will have his life taken.  For God made man to be like Him.”  All human life is of equal worth and should be treated as such, from conception to natural death.  Beckwith (1998) proclaimed, “To promote the aborting of the handicapped unborn is no different...

Impaired Nurse

...According to the American Nurses Association, an impaired nurse is unable to meet the requirements of the code of ethics and standards of practice of the profession. This nurse has cognitive, interpersonal or psychomotor skills affected by psychiatric illness and/or drug or alcohol abuse of addiction (American Nurses Association, 2010). Not only do these nurses create a potential threat to their clients, but they have also neglected to care for themselves. A survey has been recorded about the prevalence of chemical dependency in nurses. About 2.6 million registered nurses are employed in the United States (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, 2010). The American Nurses Association estimates that about 10% of the RN population has a drug or alcohol related problem (Dunn, 2005). Eleven percent are chemical dependent on drugs, ten percent are dependent on alcohol, and about 546,000 of the 2.6 million RNs in the United States abuse either drugs or alcohol (Dunn, 2005). And of all these registered nurses, about six percent provide patient care while impaired (Dunn, 2005). Because of this, client safety is jeopardized, and as nurses, it is a nurse’s duty to protect the patient from harm and to also become an advocate for the impaired nurse. Using a deontological standpoint, this theory supports the idea of accepting the responsibility and duty as a nurse and become an advocate for the patient as soon as possible. As a licensed professional, the primary duty is......

...The Impaired Employee and Liability Loretta Davis Strayer University  Health Care Policy, Law and Ethics Dr. Wendy Whitner February 13, 2011               Ethical Consideration 1. Identify and explain at least three Ethical considerations. “Ethics are the principles of conduct governing and individual or a group; specifically, the standards you use to decide what your conduct should be”(Dressler, 2008, p. 553). The leaders and management team of an organization are selected and expected to exhibit the highest level of ethical values. The Vice President for Health Services is certainly charged with ensuring that ethical practices are adhered. They are responsible for making sure that the decisions, policies, and procedures have an ethical foundation. Their primary focus is to make certain that the organization perform at optimum levels. Ethical consideration pertains to the right or wrong conduct based on morality. “Ethical behavior calls healthcare providers to conduct themselves in a manner that is beyond the demands of what is legal; it also asks them to behave in a manner that is ethical according to the guidelines of their profession” (Riley, 2011, p.1). Ethical principles are important all industries; however, the healthcare industry requires the highest level of ethics because people in this industry deal with situation and circumstances that affect another person’s life (Dogra, 2010). The three ethical consideration observed in the......

Health Psychology Definition and Relation to Other Psychological Fields

...TASK: Using examples clearly distinguish between the following. a) Clinical psychology, Health psychology, psychiatry and Behavioral Medicine b) Show how the other three are interrelated with health psychology Clinical psychology is both a health care profession , and a health-related scientific discipline (Carr, 2012). As a profession clinical psychology involves using clinical judgement to apply knowledge from the scientific discipline in clinical practice with clients and patients. Clinical practice involves the assessment, treatment and prevention of psychological problems in a range of populations. For example helping a boy who is failing in school and defiant with his parents and teachers; helping a woman with depression regulate her mood more effectively; helping a family of a person whose psychotic whose psychotic symptoms have been reduced through using medication to develop a supportive style to prevent relapse. Scientific knowledge about clinical psychology is developed through initial academic training, ongoing continuing professional development and research. As a scientific discipline, clinical psychology entails research conducted to find out how best to understand, assess, treat and prevent psychological problems and also to find out how widespread psychological problems are (Carr, 2012). The result of clinical psychology research provides information for planning services for whole populations, and evaluating and treating individual cases in......

Differences in Counseling and Other Health Professions

...between counselors and other mental health professions. The findings were quite unique but not at all shocking. There was an equal amount of information on the differences and similarities amongst the counseling, psychology, and pyschiatric professions. However, the differences stood out far more than similarities. I also will display the characteristics needed to become an effective counselor. These characteristics I found are very challenging to an aspiring counselor and cannot be approached with emotional weakness. The characteristics of an effective counselor are the foundation to the profession itself. My last evaluation will be a professional counselor's ability to recognize wellness and impairment within themselves to prevent burnout. A counseling professional's wellness and impairment is very important to maintain effectiveness. I will break down the effects of the profession without recognizing proper wellness and impairment and how it can affect a counselor's success. 3 Counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists have one major responsibility. That responsibility is to provide mental therapy and counseling to people in need. These three professionals help people eliminate emotional problems and aid many who are challenged by mental health problems. They also ......

Case 10.7 Impaired Abilities

...In this case we deal with two different scenarios. In the first scenario we have to deal with two types of investments, one is municipal bond and the other one is corporate bond. In the second scenario we deal with common shares. Below listed codifications Support these scenarios. Relating to scenario A, my estimation of the fairness of the client’s assumption regarding its investment portfolio that the securities are not other-than-temporarily impaired is based on the following information/codifications stated below. ASC 360-10-20: Impairment is the condition that exists when the carrying amount of a long-lived asset (asset group) exceeds its fair value. According to the codification stated above: Municipal bonds amortized costs $8,500,000 exceeds its fair value of $7,500,000. Corporate bonds amortized costs $8,200,000 exceeds its fair value of $6,800,000. Therefore impairment exists. ASC 320-10-35-33A: If an entity intends to sell the debt security (that is, it has decided to sell the security), an other-than-temporary impairment shall be considered to have occurred. ASC 320-10-35-33B: If an entity does not intend to sell the debt security, the entity shall consider available evidence to assess whether it more likely than not will be required to sell the security before the recovery of its amortized cost basis (for example, whether its cash or working capital requirements or contractual or regulatory obligations indicate that the security will be required to be sold......

Contribution to Health and Safery of Self and Others at Work

...1. Describe the legislative framework for safety? The model Work Health and Safety Regulations set out more detailed requirements to support the duties in the Model Work Health and Safety (WHS) Act. They are model provisions only. To be legally binding they need to be enacted or passed by Parliament in each jurisdiction. Work health and safety laws are state, territory and Commonwealth-based laws. The Work Health and Safety Act 2011 provide a framework to protect the health, safety and welfare of all workers at work. It also protects the health and safety of all other people who might be affected by the work. All workers are protected by the WHS Act. This includes employees, contractors, subcontractors, outworkers, apprentices and trainees, work experience students, volunteers and employers who perform work. The WHS Act also provides protection for the general public so that their health and safety is not placed at risk by work activities. The WHS Act places the primary health and safety duty on a person conducting a business or undertaking (PCBU), who must ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of workers at the workplace. Duties are also placed on officers of a PCBU, workers and other persons at a workplace. 2. Describe the regulations and code of practice? Some workplace hazards can cause so much injury or disease that specific regulations or codes of practice are needed to control them. These regulations and codes explain the duties...

The Impaired Employee

...Kenneth Okwuosa HAS 515 Professor: Dr Harold Ray Griffin 10/30/2011 Abstract Scenario:  You are the Chief Executive Officer at a small non-profit community hospital.  In January the area was hit by a large snow storm while you were vacationing in the Bahamas.  Many of the hospital staff who provided patient care called out from work on the 3-11 and 11-7 shifts.  Despite efforts from the nurse managers to get relief staff, only one nurse agreed to come in. As a result, the patient units were understaffed and health care personnel on day shift were required to remain on their assigned unit until they were relieved from duty.   During the course of this occurrence several patients sustained minor injuries from falls out of bed and one patient was given the incorrect medication, resulting in death. The nurse on duty left the hospital to buy dinner at the corner Wendy’s Restaurant.  After one year, the families of these patients sued the hospital on behalf of their deceased relatives, and you are one of the parties mentioned in the suit.  The hospital refused liability, stating that: the patients who sustained a fall were awake, oriented and experienced no limitation in mobility; the patient who was given the incorrect medication died not from staff negligence, but from an unidentified allergic reaction to a food substance and had no history of allergies. On this paper I will be responding to the following questions: * Identify and explain at least three legal......

The United State has a profit driven economy where health care is mostly in the hands of the private business sector. In a lot of countries health care is either supplement or control by their government. Even democratic societies such Great Britain and Canada both control most of their countries medical industry. Because the U.S. is such an open “free market economy” the quality of health care is based on how much a person has can spend on their healthcare needs Understanding how the care of health is impacting the citizens of the United States we must investigate how health care needs are affecting the behaviors, economics, and social structure of U.S. citizens; how the stages of medical technology development is improving the healthcare needs of U.S. or is the technology a hinders; how understanding the trends in the population demographic over a period of 80 years have changed towards healthcare, and lastly, what are the morality trend over the past century.

Hearing Impaired Patients

...Hearing Impaired Patients Paula Inman NUR 440 October 10th, 2011 Priscilla Aylesworth Hearing Impaired Patients Hearing loss is a common health issue that affects 10% of the work population as indicated by many international studies” (Bento & Penteado, 2010, pg 64). According to Healthy People 2020 three out of every 1,000 babies are born with hearing loss (HealthyPeople.gov, n.d.). As we age hearing loss is caused by colds, earaches, medications, head trauma, and the aging process. At Illinois Valley Hospice most of our patients are elderly, and we wanted to see how we can help the hearing impaired patient feel comfortable in their surroundings even if they have difficulty hearing. The Sample Group We took a three-month sample of our patient. In total we served 57 patients ranging from 44 to 99 years old. Thirty of the patients had no hearing impairment, 19 had mild impairment, five had moderate and three had severe. In hospice, patients get to the point where they no longer respond, but research shows that hearing is the last sense to leave as they are dying. The hospice staff noted the different ways each patient was could communicate. With the mild and moderate hearing impaired patients the staff just needed to talk loudly and look directly at the patient so they had the opportunity to read lips. It was more difficult communicating with the severe hearing impaired. Staff noted that they needed to make sure the patient had their hearing aids in; staff......
