Special Needs Children And Mental Health, 2016 Andrews University
Special Needs Children And Mental Health, Nancy J. Carbonell
What do these stories have in common? They are representative of many students who experience learning difficulties while at the same time struggling with mental or emotional issues. Special-needs teachers see children like Brandon, Carmen, and Jake in their classrooms every day. It is estimated that in the U.S., 37 percent of children with special needs also need mental-health care. That is approximately one in every three special-needs students! This is particularly challenging for teachers whose training did not include how to deal with children experiencing mental-health issues.
Accomodating Students With Disabilities In Higher Education, 2016 Andrews University
Accomodating Students With Disabilities In Higher Education, Carletta Witzel, Luana Greulich, James Jeffery
Students who choose to attend Seventh-day Adventist colleges and universities often do so because they want to experience the unique Christian worldview that permeates the curriculum. Many want more than a school where religious classes are taught— they expect the entire curriculum to be infused with Seventh-day Adventist values. Students with disabilities who enroll in Adventist colleges and universities desire these same college experiences. Recent figures (2012) released by the United States government show that almost 11 percent of undergraduates across the nation (almost two million students) have one or more disabilities. Approximately 15 percent of these have mobility impairments ...
Private Education In The Absence Of A Public Option: The Cases Of The United Arab Emirates And Qatar, 2016 Sheikh Saud bin Saqr Al Qasimi Foundation for Policy Research
Private Education In The Absence Of A Public Option: The Cases Of The United Arab Emirates And Qatar, Natasha Y. Ridge, Soha Shami, Susan M. Kippels
FIRE: Forum for International Research in Education
In the face of rising demand for private schooling in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Qatar, a lack of affordable schooling options, monopolistic behavior of private education providers, and unpredictable government regulations have created a complex and unequal education sector. This research employs a mixed methods comparative approach to explore the ways in which private education providers navigate the regulatory schooling environments and assess the impact on education stakeholders in the UAE and Qatar. The study finds that there are considerable socioeconomic differences in terms of who has access to schooling and that a growing for-profit education sector may ...
"I'M Man Enough: Are You?": The Queer (Im)Possibilities Of Walk A Mile In Her Shoes, 2016 Loyola University Chicago
"I'M Man Enough: Are You?": The Queer (Im)Possibilities Of Walk A Mile In Her Shoes
Journal of Critical Scholarship on Higher Education and Student Affairs
Walk a Mile in Her Shoes is a national program that has become a staple program to engage college males in sexual violence prevention on many college campuses. In this manuscript, I use queer theory and crip theory—a conceptual framework that merges queer and critical disability theory—to explore both the positive outcomes and potential harm done in the production and implementation of this event. I conclude the manuscript with considerations for educators seeking to engage college students in critical praxis around ending sexual violence on campus. These possibilities are rooted in Cohen's (1998) notion of reorienting future ...

The 'Rules Of Engagement': The Ethical Dimension Of Doctoral Research, 2016 State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota
The 'Rules Of Engagement': The Ethical Dimension Of Doctoral Research, Christopher Berg
Journal of Research Initiatives
The pursuit of a doctorate is a rite of passage that requires a student to successfully navigate the transition from “student” to “scholar.” One area of practice, however, that is often marginalized is the role of ethics. Though there is no formal coursework in ethics, its importance cannot be understated. This essay examines the conceptual role of ethics in doctoral research as both an individual reflective essay as well as a broader discussion of ethics in general. The ethical dimension considered is broken down into eight principles or ethical research and practice in doctoral research. The “Eight Ethical Principles” will ...

Development Of Accessible Laboratory Experiments For Students With Visual Impairments, 2016 Illinois State University
Development Of Accessible Laboratory Experiments For Students With Visual Impairments, Kc Kroes, Daniel Lefler, Aaron Schmitt, Cary A. Supalo
Journal of Science Education for Students with Disabilities
The hands-on laboratory experiments are frequently what spark students’ interest in science. Students who are blind or have low vision (BLV) typically do not get the same experience while participating in hands-on experiences due to accessibility. Over the course of approximately 9 months, common chemistry laboratory experiments were adapted and field tested for use in a residential school for the blind. These adaptations most commonly used a SciVoice Talking LabQuest and associated sensors, as well as other tactile methods.
On The Expression Of Higher Mathematics In American Sign Language, 2016 University of North Florida
On The Expression Of Higher Mathematics In American Sign Language, John Tabak
Journal of Interpretation
The grammar and vocabulary of higher mathematics are different from the grammar and vocabulary of conversational English and conversational American Sign Language (ASL). Consequently, mathematical language presents interpreters with a unique set of challenges. This article characterizes those aspects of mathematical grammar that are peculiar to the subject. (A discussion of mathematical vocabulary and its expression in ASL can be found elsewhere (Tabak, 2014).) An increased awareness of the grammar of mathematical language will prove useful to those interpreters for the deaf and deaf mathematics professionals seeking to express higher mathematics in ASL.
In this article one will, for ...
We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, 2016 Grand Valley State University
We’Re Open Access—But Are We Accessible?, Matt Ruen, Jackie Rander
The open access movement, from the Budapest and Berlin declarations onward, has consistently focused on removing economic and legal barriers to scholarly information. While this has increased access to research for many, it implicitly assumes that content need only be online, free, and openly licensed for everyone to have access—an assumption which neglects the barriers that may lurk within content, preventing disabled or impaired users from enjoying the same access to scholarship.
This assumption is as prevalent in library open access services as elsewhere; like many other repository teams, we have focused on recruiting content, not evaluating it. This ...

An Introductory Online Interactive Training To Disability Etiquette And Protocol To Promote Inclusion, 2016 SIT Graduate Institute
An Introductory Online Interactive Training To Disability Etiquette And Protocol To Promote Inclusion, David Murcko
Study abroad is a privilege and an opportunity of a lifetime that not many individuals take full advantage of. Many factors can contribute towards a student’s decision to not study abroad, including but not limited to: finances, academic coursework, family concerns, and not being able to graduate on time. A topic rarely discussed is disclosing medical information. While the amount of students studying abroad is increasing every year, a significant amount of underrepresented minorities desire to embark on that journey of study abroad as well. Unfortunately, advisers are not always well equipped with adequate knowledge of resources. Outdated terminology ...
The Impact Of Family Autism Camp On Families And Individuals With Asd, 2016 Western Michigan University
The Impact Of Family Autism Camp On Families And Individuals With Asd, Luchara R. Wallace
The Qualitative Report
Families of children with disabilities, such as Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD), often search for opportunities to acquire information about and receive emotional support from others who may have or had similar experiences. An evaluation of the Dakota Black Goose Family Autism Camp sought to determine the impact of the family camp experience. Pre- and Post-Camp surveys were administered upon families’ arrival at Camp and prior to their departure (n=17) to evaluate the overall quality of the program as well as the level of informational and emotional support anticipated and received. Follow-up interviews were completed six months post Camp to ...
