Sometimes it seems the more technologically advanced society becomes, the more HOPELESS, backwards and less evolved we are becoming.  It is estimated adults spend at least two hours per day on social media and children and teens spend up to a whopping six to nine hours consuming social media daily according to a recent report from Common Sense Media.  Society today is filled with HYPE perpetuated by the dawn of the reality show era and social media and the hope to portray oneself as more happy, industrious and successful than in actuality.  Living like the “Jones’s” (no offense to the Joneses of the world!) has developed into a narcissistic, conflict ridden, ...

Report to Congress on The Management of TBI in Children Children have the highest rate of emergency department visits for traumatic brain (TBI) injury of all age groups. TBI affects children differently than adults. An injury of any severity to the developing brain can disrupt a child’s development, and may result in restrictions in school and participation in activities (e.g., sports).  As a result of TBI, children can experience changes in their health, thinking, and behavior that affect learning, self-regulation, and social participation, all of which are important in becoming a productive adult. CDC’s newest Report to Congress outlines current gaps ...

In baby's dirty diapers, the clues to baby's brain development... If you're the parent of an infant, diaper duty probably isn't your favorite part of the day. But you dutifully check the contents of each one because your pediatrician told you that color and consistency of what they leave behind can tell you a lot about their health. But what does a dirty diaper have to do with your baby's brain? According to first-of-their-kind findings from the UNC School of Medicine, the answer may be a lot. Using fecal samples taken from dozens of one-year-olds and cognitive assessments of the same children a year later, researchers in the lab of Rebecca Knickmeyer, ...

I work n a rural school that is fairly small. We have a total of 1200 k-12 students in one building with about 450 high school students. This is my second year working in the district as school psychologist and special education coordinator. The school has been very slow in addressing the services of students based upon their needs not just their labels. One of the issues that has been brought to my table is how to "grade" students with disabilities. Last year a student with severe disabilities graduated from general education classes (i.e. Economics, government, algebra 2, etc.) with mostly A's and was in the top 10% of his class. On some level, it is ...
