  2. Preoperational Thinking Signs • Second stage in Piaget’s theory of cognitive development • This stage occurs between the ages of 2-7years • This stage is often broken down into two sub stages: 2-4 years and 5-7years (transition stage) • After 7 years of age they enter the operational period • Use of symbols • Make believe play • Egocentric viewpoint • Limited focus • Children this age do not think like adults, and should not be treated like adults

  3. Measuring Intelligence • Educators use formal intelligence tests to more accurately determine the intellectual abilities of children • These results help teachers, principals to understand and meet students educational needs • First intelligence test was developed by French psychologist, Alfred Binet in 1905 • In 1916 Lewis M Terman made a major revision, and devised a way to give a persons intelligence a numerical score • Eventually was able to determine a child of any age has an IQ between 90 and 110

  4. Disadvantages of IQ tests • IQ test results are not always consistent, parents and children shouldn’t become too concerned • No test gives an absolute accurate estimate of an individuals mental ability • Influences can effect the score such as: physical/emotional stability during test, limited experiences, unfamiliarity with language • IQ tests do not tell much about specific abilities, different strengths and weakness

  5. Screening Instruments • These provide an overview of a child's level of development in all areas • If a child falls of the “normal”, than an in depth assessments of skills can be done • These evaluations help identify problem areas and guide parents

  6. Everyday learning opportunities • Wide variety experiences provide more learning if a parent shares them with a child • Look for opportunities to talk with children • Use positive comments, this can encourage interest • Questions help children think in new ways and encourages organizing thoughts into answers • Explanations/suggestions or asking a child’s advice can be helpful • Included in household tasks such as shopping, cooking, chores, this develops responsibility, maturity, independence • Answer in simple terms with correct names, so they can understand • Encourage positive attitudes, unembarrassed, natural environment • Learning should be an everyday family centered event

  11. Learning Disabilities • Learning disabled have difficulties with academic achievement and progress • Learning disabled show and uneven pattern of development • Environmental disadvantage and mental retardation/emotional disturbance are not reasons for learning problems • 6 to 10 percent of the school aged population is learning disabled • Little is known about causes of learning disabilities • Early warning signs of learning disabilities: problems with reading, mathematics, comprehension, writing, spoken language, reasoning abilities. • Learning disabilities typically affect 5 general areas: Spoken Language, Written language, Arithmetic, Reasoning, memory

  12. Pointers for parents with children with disabilities • Take time to listen to your children as much as you can • Love them by touching them.
