Special Needs And The Media
Parents with children who have special needs may make use of several types of media. This is because media varies a lot especially on the quality. The parents must therefore identify the one which enables them be able to understand the need for the child. If a parent has a child who has learning difference or even the special need, the child should be taken to an institution where there is use of computers that have programs able to cater for the child’s needs (Hasselbring & Glaser, 2000). This paper focuses on the persuasive developmental disorder and the way the parent is able to make use of websites to obtain information on the special needs for his or her child.
Persuasive developmental disorder (PDD) is a condition that comprises late development of several basic skills for instance, socializing, imagination and even the way to communicate. The child becomes confused and is unable to understand the world. The problem is identified when the child is about three years when he or she tries to walk and talk (Masterson, 2013).
The websites give varied information basing on the disorder for instance there is the CDC website, asha. org, nimh, human development and centers for disease control as well as prevention websites which contain information on the disorder. The parent is supposed to read the information on the various websites and analyze it in a piece of paper. The information should then help the parent to identify the signs and symptoms so as to understand the disease. Once this is done, the parent should look at the control measures for the need so as to assist the child and then observe whether the child is able to recover. The parent should then seek medical advice from the experts so as to be further guided and also to confirm that the child has the special need.
