Ethnic Identity And Well-Being: A Meta-Analytic Review, Lynda Rae Silva 2011 Brigham Young University - Provo

Ethnic Identity And Well-Being: A Meta-Analytic Review, Lynda Rae Silva

Theses and Dissertations

This meta-analysis provided a synthesis of the research examining the relationship between the construct of ethnic identity and global well-being, variously measured. The aims of this systematic review were to ascertain the overall magnitude of the association between ethnic identity and well-being, as well as to explore the impact of moderating variables on the association. A total of 184 studies were analyzed, resulting in an omnibus effect size of r = .17, suggesting a modest but statistically significant relationship between these two constructs. Younger participants demonstrated a stronger relationship between ethnic identity and well-being. Participants in the low acculturation category demonstrated ...

A Meta-Analysis Of Peer-Mediated Interventions For Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders., Jie Zhang, John J. Wheeler 2011 The College at Brockport

A Meta-Analysis Of Peer-Mediated Interventions For Young Children With Autism Spectrum Disorders., Jie Zhang, John J. Wheeler

Education and Human Development Faculty Publications

This meta-analysis investigated the efficacy of peer-mediated interventions for promoting social interactions among children from birth to eight years of age diagnosed with ASD. Forty-five single-subject design studies were analyzed and the effect sizes were calculated by the regression model developed by Allison and Gorman (1993). The overall effect sizes suggest that peer-mediated interventions were highly effective. Further categorical comparisons suggest that these interventions were more effective in enhancing social responses in younger boys, when older male siblings served as interventionists, when the interventions took place in the home, when peer modeling was used, and when consideration was given to ...


The Relationship Between The Level Of School-Involvement And Learned Helplessness Among Special-Education Teachers In The Arab Sector, Agbaria Qutaiba 2011 Al- Qasmi College- Baqa Elgarbia, Israel

The Relationship Between The Level Of School-Involvement And Learned Helplessness Among Special-Education Teachers In The Arab Sector, Agbaria Qutaiba

Australian Journal of Teacher Education

Acquired or learned helplessness is one of the most popular research subjects reported in the psychological literature in recent decades. The present study examined the relationship between involvement in decision-making at the school and learned helplessness among special-education teachers in the Israeli Arab sector. The importance of this study lies in its focused examination of variables that correlate with states that have an adverse effect on the education system, such as stress and burnout. Special-education teachers were randomly selected from several special-education schools. The findings gave considerable support to the hypotheses that predicted a negative correlation between school involvement and ...

A Family Strengths Approach To Early Language And Literacy Development, Deborah Carter, David J. Chard, Juli Pool 2011 Boise State University

A Family Strengths Approach To Early Language And Literacy Development, Deborah Carter, David J. Chard, Juli Pool

Juli Lull Pool

Language and literacy skills are an essential element of young children’s development and allow them to interact meaningfully with other people and to develop knowledge in all subject areas. Despite the importance of language and literacy development, however, more than one third of children in the United States enter school with significant differences in language, early literacy skills, and motivation to learn that place them at considerable risk for developing long-term reading difficulties. The quantity and quality of language interactions children have with their parents and exposure to print in their home environment prior to entering school have an ...

Elementary School Teachers’ Attitudes Toward Classroom Accommodations: The Effects Of Disability And School Type, Sarah Holland 2011 Connecticut College

Elementary School Teachers’ Attitudes Toward Classroom Accommodations: The Effects Of Disability And School Type, Sarah Holland

Psychology Honors Papers

The purpose of this study was to compare the attitudes of elementary school teachers toward the inclusion of a student with either a moderate intellectual, physical, or behavioral disability. Participants were from eight different elementary schools; two magnet schools, one charter school, and five public schools from one school district. Participants were provided with a vignette describing one of three disability types and then rated 25 accommodations made for that student. Teachers’ attitudes toward these accommodations were measured by the three adapted subscales of the Adaptation Evaluation Instrument (AEI; Schumm & Vaughn, 1991), which addressed how desirable teachers believe each accommodation ...


The Result Of Fitzgerald V. Barnstable School Committee On Special Education Law, Arthur Lang 2011 Rutger Law School

The Result Of Fitzgerald V. Barnstable School Committee On Special Education Law, Arthur Lang

Arthur Lang

The Individuals with Disabilities Educational Act (IDEA) requires that states receiving federal funds provide a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) to students with disabilities. Failing to provide a FAPE is discriminatory under the Equal Protection Clause of the Fourteenth Amendment, the Rehabilitations Act (RA), and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The IDEA provides remedies to correct inadequacies with compensatory but does not provide compensatory damages. Parents dissatisfied with the adequacy of the education of a child with special needs have tried to bypass this, using §1983 to seek damages for an inadequate education under the IDEA and under the ...


Enhancing Language Learning Opportunities In Family Contexts For Young Learners With Or At Risk For Communicative Developmental Delay: An Initial Investigation, Juli Lull Pool, Deborah Russell Carter, Jack J. Hourcade 2011 Boise State University

Enhancing Language Learning Opportunities In Family Contexts For Young Learners With Or At Risk For Communicative Developmental Delay: An Initial Investigation, Juli Lull Pool, Deborah Russell Carter, Jack J. Hourcade

Special Education and Early Childhood Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

Though the early years of life are critical for any child, this period may be especially crucial for young children who are at risk for or presently evidencing developmental delays. Bruder (2001) offered several rationales for the provision of early intervention. First, the earlier that children with such issues are identified and provided services, the greater the likelihood that the child will benefit. Early intervention services can reduce or eliminate developmental delays, moving children out of a risk category (e.g., from “Delayed” to “Typically developing”) (Glascoe, 2005). In addition to these immediate effects, early intervention can have a significant ...


Program-Wide Positive Behavior Support In Preschool: Lessons For Getting Started, Deborah R. Carter, Renee K. Van Norman, Claire Tredwell 2011 Boise State University

Program-Wide Positive Behavior Support In Preschool: Lessons For Getting Started, Deborah R. Carter, Renee K. Van Norman, Claire Tredwell

Special Education and Early Childhood Studies Faculty Publications and Presentations

There is growing concern over the number of young children who display challenging behavior and preschool teachers are reporting children’s challenging behavior as their greatest concern. Program-wide Positive Behavior Support (PWPBS) is a promising model for supporting appropriate behavior and decreasing challenging behavior in early childhood programs. Implementation in early childhood settings is relatively new and guidance on how to implement PWPBS in early childhood settings in growing. This article documents the implementation process for an early childhood program serving children from six weeks to five years of age, shares lessons learned and offers practical advice for getting started ...
