Top 10 Positive Autism Techniques for Managing Challenging Behavior

Top 10 Positive Autism Techniques for Managing Challenging Behavior | Cheri's Occupational Therapy | Scoop.it

When you look at a child through a child-centered lens, what do you see?

 

Children with special needs often express challenging behavior, and we’re just as often caught up in what we see on the surface, focusing on stopping the disruption before it goes any further. Yet in order to address negative behavior, we first need to look at it from the child’s point of view—and understand why it occurs.

Kate Hart: Citing Sources: A Quick and Graphic Guide

Kate Hart: Citing Sources: A Quick and Graphic Guide | Cheri's Occupational Therapy | Scoop.it

Academia has lots and lots and lots of systems in place for assuring that credit is always given where credit is due. If you're writing a paper, there are particular ways to cite internet sources-- even tweets and Facebook posts.

But what about on the internet? We know we're supposed to cite sources, but a standardized system hasn't developed, and in the meantime, you could face a lawsuit if you steal someone else's work, even by accident.

Does that mean you can't ever elaborate on someone else's ideas or repeat a little of what someone else said? Of course not. Just use some common sense and always err on the side of caution.
