  • My topic is Shaken Baby syndrome which is a form of child abuse. I have chosen to use the colour blue because it is the colour that represents child abuse. I also chose the colour red because it represents substance abuse which is something that Adele’s mother had to deal with in her past. I felt it was important to include red to represent Adele’s mother because she is Adele’s family and it is important to support not only the children in our care but also their families because they are important to the children’s overall well being.Sources:"Awareness Ribbon Colors And Meanings."

  • According to the Public Health Agency of Canada, Shaken Baby Syndrome is a medical condition that refers to injuries that occur when a baby or young child is violently shaken by another person.

  • One may wonder what would cause someone to violently shake a child. It is said that stress and pressure can push a person to abuse a child in such a way. When a child is cryingthe adulttaking care of the child may become impatient, frustrated, or angry and shake the baby.Sources:Joint Statement on Shaken Baby Syndrome."

  • There are different signs to look for that can show you if a child has been abused and shaken. The signs that people who are not doctors may look for or notice are that a child may have lethargic eyes or their skin colour may look pale or blue. Doctors can tell if a child has been shaken by looking for bleeding in the retina or around the eye, bleeding in or around the brain and bruises or bone fractures.Sources:"Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby Syndrome) ."

  • Developmental Delay: A developmental delay is when a child has not acquired the skill or reached a milestone by the expected time frame.Speech Delay: Speech is defined as the sound that comes out of the mouth. If that sound is not understandable there is a problem or delay with the speech. Speech problems can include stuttering and mispronunciation. Hearing loss: problem with one or more parts of the ear Blindness: Total blindness is when one cannot see at all in both eyes. Partial blindness is when there is difficulty seeing. E.g.: Can see in one eye and not the other or has low vision meaning even with glasses they have difficulty seeing.Intellectual Disability: significant limitations in both intellectual function and adaptive behaviour.Sources:"Abusive Head Trauma (Shaken Baby Syndrome) ."

  • Introduction of Family: Meet Adele: Adele is a three year old child with special needs. Adele was not born with a special need but acquired one as a result of an incident that took place with her babysitter. When Adele was in the care of a babysitter at 15 months old she was crying and the frustrated babysitter shook her. As a result Adele got a brain injury and was diagnosed with Shaken Baby Syndrome. As a result of the Shaken Baby Syndrome, Adele is a child with cognitive and speech delays and has difficulty with gross and fine motor skills. Adele`s mother had lost custody of Adele and she entered herself into a rehabilitation facility to help her overcome her drug and alcohol addictions. She is now sober and has regained custody of Adele. Adele and her mother have just moved to Toronto to start over and her mother attending Centennial College. She would like to know what kinds of services are available in Toronto. I have decided to include services that can help Adele as well as services for her mother because I believe in order to support the child you must provide support for their family.
  • Labelling will help the child to recognize things through pictures and words. If the child has trouble to read they can use the picture to recognize an item or activity that is part of the daily schedule. Having the word as well as the picture can help the child to create a connection between the to and help them to learn to recognize and sound out the word. You can label by putting the pictures and names of things on toy baskets, shelves, and activity centres. You can also post pictures and words on charts for routines. This can work for the individual child but also for a large group of children because they are changes to the physical environment and can benefit everyone within it.One on one time is something you can do to help give extra attention to the child and their need. You can use one on one time to asses the child's ability and progress and to encourage the child and teach them new strategies. Age appropriate toys that stimulate the child can help with their developmental delays. For example for a speech delay you can use toys that sing songs, teach the alphabet, and say words. Playing with these toys can help the child to learn the sounds of letters and words.Encouraging discussions at circle time and meal time will provide opportunities for all children to speak and share. A child with a speech delay can learn by listening to the other children speak and by choosing to speak and share as well when comfortable.
  • Enlarging is a way to help children with fine motor delays. According to our class notes “The Inclusive Environment Weeks 4 & 5”, enlarging involves adding small pieces or materials to make a toy accessible. Some examples of this can be to add things like sponge hair rollers or play dough to build and make a handle larger. This can be done on writing utensils like pencils, crayons and markers and as well on handle of paint brushes. You can also put out activities like threading beads. This can be done with many different materials to suit all children’s developmental levels and change the level of difficulty. E.g.: if a child had difficulty with fine motor skills you can start by using string that is more thick and larger beads. As the child begins to get the hang of it you can change the materials (smaller beads, different thickness of string) to increase the difficulty level according to the progress of the child. Having materials that have been enlarged out for all children instead of just the child with the delay is a way to include then entire group. Include the enlarged materials and not enlarged materials of the same item when setting up the environment to allow all children the choice of what they would like to use.The best way to adapt the environment for children with gross motor delays is to reduce clutter in order to create a more open space. This will allow child who may need the help of an aid for walking to have less difficulty getting around the room. Also making time for outdoor play and physical activity is important. Outdoor play provides more space for children to be able to move around and attempt challenges on the playground e.g.: steps on the playground, different levels. Also activities such as dancing will provide the opportunity to use more movement and attempt different dance moves.Source:Cadieux, Chris . "The Inclusive Environment."

  • Adele has difficulties with gross and fine motor skills and cognitive and speech delays. The following organizations can help her to develop her skills further and reach her full potential.
  • Hand Skills for Children is a private practice that consists of occupational therapists that assist children with fine and gross motor difficulties.

Hand Skills for Children provides individual therapy and therapy in group sessions. An organization like this would benefit Adele and children with special needs because they help with fine and gross motor skills. They conduct an initial assessment and then design a program for your child based on the assessment. This means that the program is specific to your child’s needs which ensures that your child is getting help where they need it. They offer gymnastics with a focus on hand eye coordination, bilateral coordination and strength in group settings as well.Additional Information: Address: 658 Danforth Ave. Suite 412Toronto, ON M4J 5B9Phone: 647-236-4263Email: lizette@handskillsforchildren.com Source:"Hand Skills for Children."

  • Speech Therapy Centres of Canada offer speech therapy for adults and children. They have four locations in Ontario including one location in Toronto on Avenue Road in between Lawrence Ave W and Wilson Ave. They offer therapy with speech pathologists and communication disorders assistants and no wait times for assessments. Therapy can be done one on one, in pairs with another person who has similar difficulties as you do or in groups to help build social skills. An agency like this would benefit Adele and children with special needs because they have programs specializing in Acquired Brain Injuries and Speech delays. They have a particular six week program called Making and Keeping Friends that is specifically targeted for children with Autism Spectrum Disorders, Attention Hyperactive Deficit Disorder and Acquired Brain Injury. The program is a group program that focuses on teaching children how to start a conversation and take turns while speaking. It helps to develop social skills and teach skills necessary to communicate in social settings. Aside from offering programs for Adele it also offers free workshops for the parents. These workshops teach parents about speech disorders and give them strategies and activities to do with their children to help with their speech.Additional Information: Toronto Location1896 Avenue Rd., Suite 201Toronto, ONM6M 2K9Tel: 905.886.5941Fax: 905.886.2362info@speechtherapycentres.comSource:"Speech Therapy Language Development, Pathology & Activities."
