Behavior and development [electronic resource (video)] : two baby on board case studies / by Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm)(SAGE)1984150; Films Media Group(SAGE)1996584; Radio Telefís Eíreann.;

This program deals with behavior and development obstacles faced by two different families of young children. Three-year-old Leon has speech problems which often force his widowed mother and older brother Josh to translate for him. Leon's many tantrums are a related concern. The mother of three-year-old twins Ben and Kyle and their brother Josh, 11, is also frequently swamped by behavior challenges while her husband is away on business. Public health nurse Grainne Ryan helps both families build coping skills and support mechanisms.11 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

(1:23) -- Early Intervention for Disturbed Children (0:42)Experts are seeing an alarming increase in severe emotional and behavioral disorders among young children, characterized by abusive language, physical threats, and violent tantrums. "I can't live like this. Afraid to get up. Afraid to go to bed. Afraid of what you're going to find when you walk into a room," says a foster mother of twins she cannot control. In this program, ABC News anchors Diane Sawyer and Sam Donaldson investigate the frightening world of children with severe anger control problems, focusing on how to identify a child at risk and the vital importance of early intervention.12 & up.Some language may be objectionable.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

This is especially true for parents who see their children less than does their child-care provider. In these cases, it is essential that you, as the child's primary caregiver, not only recognize their special needs, but additionally respond to them. This video describes a wide range of special needs symptoms from minor balance and movement problems to major or grand-mal seizures.13 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

This program challenges the status quo, supported by a staggering amount of testimony and documentation. Incorporating detailed interviews with psychiatrists, neurologists, and education experts-as well as parents and kids who have suffered because of rigid prescription practices-the program analyzes links between school procedures, the medical establishment, and Big Pharma. Footage from the 1998 Consensus Development Conference on ADD/ADHD raises disturbing questions about how the disorders are diagnosed.12 & up.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.

(2:18)Millions of children in America are being diagnosed with learning disorders and depression. While many say medications such as Ritalin, Dexedrine, and Prozac are the answer, others recommend counseling, social skills training, or dietary changes. How does one distinguish between a child with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and a kid who is just being a kid? This program offers parents, teachers, and caregivers a balanced look at options for helping children with learning difficulties or behavioral problems.Mode of access: Internet.System requirements: FOD playback platform.Title from distributor's description.
