Or else they will get very confused. For example, if a teacher tells Michaels to leave the room for a second, he would walk out of the classroom for exactly one second and then come back in. It is very hard for Michael to understand the true meaning as to what the person is telling him, and therefore he get very confused. There are some ways of helping these children with their difficulties which is having them take speech-language assessments. This studies the child’s understanding of nonliterary language, verbal problem solving, and nonverbal communication (Males and Simpson 26).
Getting Michael into these programs early in his life, can really impact how well his language understanding develops as adults. Physical domain Children with Aspirer Syndrome tend to have some physical problems. Physical activity can be hard for children with AS because most of the children have a degree of fine and gross motor problems (Prior 207). Children with AS tend to have bad balance and hand eye coordination, they can also be very clumsy. This makes it very hard for Michael to play on a team.
Difficulties with fine motor skills affect Michaels performance academically. He can sometimes have trouble grasping a pencil, and Hereford he write very messy. This also causes a lot of problems in physical education class (Males and Simpson 62). Students with AS have a very hard time physically and gym can be very hard on them emotionally because children tend to make fun of someone who is very bad at sports. Children with Aspirer Syndrome also have problems with textures and sensory perception. Certain textures can really bother a person with AS. So can different sounds.
A child with AS has heightened senses and this causes them to get very disturbed by certain things Jackson 61). Children with AS also have different dietary needs. There is a theory that gluten and casein products can not be broken down with people on the Autistic spectrum. The removal of these foods can be very beneficial to the child’s health. Going on a gluten free diet has shown some amazing results in helping children with Autism deal with their dietary needs Jackson 82). Social Domain Children with Aspirer Syndrome have a lot of difficulty with social situations.
Michael sometimes doesn’t know how to handle some situations that he is not used to. It is said that children with AS don’t understand when they are standing to close to someone, which would make them uncomfortable. Also Michael has difficulties with following people around, and not knowing that this is bothering the person he is following. It is also very hard for Michael to tell if someone is bored because he doesn’t understand peoples facial expressions, and different emotional expressions Jackson 164).
Research states that children with AS demonstrate impairments in their relationships with peers, difficulties with participating in reciprocal conversations and using nonverbal communication cues within social exchanges (Prior 105). Michael also has a very hard time with maintaining eye contact with Michael to be socially awkward in his lack of eye contact (Prior 106). This can be very frustrating for Michael because he feel like he is doing everything right and normal with other people, but he end up doing things all wrong. Emotional Domain (Self-esteem) Some children have a much healthier self-regard than others.
However, children who are aware that they have significant difficulties that keep them apart from their peers are almost guaranteed to have low self-esteem. And this is exacerbated by sleep problems, bullying, difficulties with school-work, relationship problems etc. Clearly, self-esteem issues are common in children with Aspirer Syndrome. Studies show that children who are given help with Social Skills and are able to translate this into real life situations, develop higher self-esteem, and some children benefit from Cognitive Behavioral Therapy There are several strands that Michaels parents and teachers should keep an eye on.
Teachers need to make sure that Michael is not being bullied, that he can access school work, that he can cope with playtime’s and dinner hours. Espies are often perfectionists, and therefore often feel that they are eating people down when they do not do something perfectly. Michael needs to know his rules about doing his best. He often avoids situations where he is afraid of failing. Michael need to be encouraged to take risks, maybe going into a social situation, and then emphasis the things he has done well. Success in one situation can give the confidence to tackle another new thing.
Conclusion Every child is unique – unique in the way he develops and grows. A child’s development from baby to toddler, from child to teenager from teenager to adult usually follows an expected pattern. Sometimes this pattern of development is allayed. The delay may be mild or severe. Every child develops differently, however some differences may indicate a developmental disorder or delay. This is where important developmental milestones or stages are missed or delayed. Many children with Speakers Syndrome also have sensory processing difficulties.
Children with Speakers Syndrome often find social situations extremely trying and stressful. They frequently have stereotypical patterns of behavior and can be obsessive about very specific interests, in addition to some speech and language peculiarities and issues with non-verbal communication, Many f these young people have average or above average intelligence – but lack the skills to communicate easily, have very poor social skills and may not be able to empathic or relate well to other children or adults.
These children often have great difficulty ‘reading’ other people’s emotions or feelings. These difficulties can persist through teenage and adult life. However with family and school supports and with early intervention, young people None of us can choose our genes, our parents, or the place where we are born. We all have feelings and we all live in the same world. Let’s make it a kind and friendly place for everyone.
