So far this is Special Education Philippines fifth visit at DZRH News to help Advocata’s information and awareness campaign for children with different special needs. Tomorrow, there will be two topics for the two-hour show of Ms. Ruth Pangga Abao. The 2 to 3 pm show will focus on Physical therapy as one of the services needed by children with special needs. And the 3 to 4 pm show will be a little bit more personal for me because it will focus on marriage and relationships for people with ADHD. Jappy Lim (Executive Director of Reef Check Philippines) and Teacher Ia Adam-Lim will be in that segment together with one of the board of directors of the ADHD Society of the Philippines. The last talk aims to promote also the 6th National ADHD Conference that will happen that same week September 28 to 29, 2012.
We thank everyone who have sent their questions, comments and reactions via different media: e-mail, Facebook, text message, etc. We really appreciate all your thoughts and those who require assistance, rest assured that Special Education Philippines aims to bridge that gap between the needs and the resources for children with special needs.
So for tomorrow’s CSN talk in DZRH, here are the questions we aim to answer:
Topic: Physical Therapy at mga batang may kapansanan
Special Education Philippines was reading a report from UC Berkeley entitled “Girls with ADHD more prone to self-injury, suicide as they enter adulthood“. It says in the post “In the United States, more than 5 million children ages 3-17 – approximately one in 11 – have been diagnosed with ADHD, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.” That is almost 10% of the children’s population that has ADHD.
Is that a big percentage? I’m hesitant to answer in my current capability as a parent and a homeschooling teacher. But in a class of 30 to 40 if you have at least 3 to 4 students with ADHD and they say that managing a child with ADHD is like managing a child x 10 then 3 to 4 kids with ADHD and 30 to 40 students in the class. That is roughly double the class. That means double the work for teacher. And what if you are one of the lucky ones to get more than 10% of your students with ADHD? How’s that?
But wait this is statistics in the US and the UC Berkeley article I am talking about is dated August 14, 2012 while the actual study where they got the statistics was from dated November 2011 entitled “Prospective Follow-Up of Girls With Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder Into Early Adulthood: Continuing Impairment Includes Elevated Risk for Suicide Attempts and Self-Injury“. Maybe just maybe its different here in the Philippines? Oh where oh where will I find results that is relevant in the Philippine setting?
