Dr. Roger Mignosa, D.O. Dead Bug Exercise - YouTube - 0 views

    Those of you who know Roger will appreciate this video. The first of many to come! "Sagittal stability is the foundation for all movement. The dead bug exercise balances the core muscles to optimize the flow of the breath and increases space in the lumbar spine enabling improved coordination of the legs. This exercise is done in 2-3 month old infants before they are able to roll, crawl, sit and stand. If this exercise is difficult it is likely that you compensate for an unbalanced core with excessive tension in your arms and legs. Category"

Child Development, Children's Mental Health and the Juvenile Justice System - Standford... - 1 views

  • Thus, there are several reasons why actors in our juvenile justice system should understand child development principles. Indeed, there may be paradoxical or untoward negative developmental consequences of incompetent or developmentally inappropriate sanctions by a juvenile court. Simply put, there is the very real risk that the system can do more harm than good to a child who is still in the process of neurobiological, psychological, social, and moral development. Because of this, the negat
  • ve consequences of careless sanctioning may be more enduring for a child (and for society) than they might be for an adult.
  • Childhood is an intense period of rapid development culminating in the tasks of identity formation and social integration. Other than infancy, no stage in human development results in such rapid or dramatic change as adolescence.
  • ...6 more annotations...
  • These developmental tasks are exquisitely sensitive to environmental (peer, educational, familial, and social) influence. To complicate matters further, the teen years are also characterized by a struggle for autonomy from adults upon whom these youth must still depend.
  • According to some authorities, adolescence is an "important formative period in which many developmental trajectories become firmly established and increasingly difficult to alter . . . it is not an overstatement to say that it is much easier to alter an individual's life course in adolescence than in adulthood."
  • experience affects brain development and the developing brain affects how the environment is experienced and processed.
  • Therefore, future behaviors in response to a given set of environmental circumstances, cues, or stimuli can be traced to genetic/biological factors (temperament, biological predilection, or vulnerability) and experience (internal, familial, interpersonal, and environmental).
  • Research using magnetic resonance imaging of the brain demonstrates differences in the way adolescents and adults think and feel and the way they process information before they act.
  • From a child development perspective, the predictability and consistency of adult attention and responsiveness is often what is most important. If a child learns that his social environment will respond inconsistently, he is much more likely to continue a behavior in the hopes that he will "get away with it this time."
    The article by Dr. David E. Arredondo was published in the Standford Law and Policy review and explains principles of child development and discusses the various ways children of different developmental stages experience the same sanction. Can this same process be used as a rationale for including website evaluation at all levels of education?

    Alternative Learning Methods: Self-Paced Learning (JHIEPO - International health) Self-paced or individualized learning is defined as learning directed by the individual in order to meet personal learning objectives.
