When Oroville’s Hunter Monnot reached on an error in the top of the third, Miller picked him off at first to retire the side. Colton Rogers reached on an error to lead off the fourth and Miller got him as well.Schereck didn’t falter until …last_img read more

A bagless approach in early intervention? What is that?

first_imgby Crystal WilliamsImages from R. DiPietro-Wells; Created with AdobeSparkHome visits are a primary form of service delivery in early intervention (EI). During home visits a professional or team of professionals come into the home to provide services, such as speech, physical, occupational, or developmental therapy. In the past, home visits were largely provider-centered.  It was not unusual for professionals to walk into a home carrying a bag filled with toys and materials to be used to address specific goals for the child. This method is more provider-centered than family-centered, with the professional bringing materials to the session based on their priorities for and beliefs about the child (as opposed to the family’s priorities).The concept of family-centered practices began to develop around the middle of the 20th century but rose to the forefront of EI practices in the 1980s and beyond. [1] These practices emphasize the empowerment of caregivers to help their children reach developmental milestones. Recent findings emphasize the importance of caregiver participation in therapy. [2] In this process, the EI provider works with the family to determine goals and ways to embed intervention into their daily routines. This leads to greater generalization of skills which allows children to use those specific skills within many contexts. [3]One way to increase caregiver participation during EI home visits involves an approach called bagless intervention.  This growing method of delivering services in EI uses family routines, activities, and materials that are natural to the child to promote skill development. This method aligns with EI principles [4] and recommended practices [5] and is described in the article What about MY Toys: A Bagless Approach in Early Intervention. [6] A bagless approach includes the family in selecting routines and materials already in the home to address the goals on the Individualized Family Services Plan (IFSP). For example, a family may want their toddler to request foods at mealtimes. The provider might work with the family at mealtime to give the child choices between foods and request more by using the sign for “more.”  The goals for the child should be based on the family’s priorities. Families may be more engaged in intervention when they know that their priorities and concerns are being addressed.  For a printable resource to give to families see this blog.  There you will find activity cards to give to caregivers and families to support at-home skill practice using common household items.When caregivers play an active role in creating functional goals for their children, outcomes improve [7]. Functional goals are those that encourage children to participate more effectively in their natural environments, such as home, child care, or community settings. Much of a child’s day is spent with caregivers, thus promoting caregiver competence during home visits is vital. Shifting from traditional, provider-centered therapy to bagless intervention is one way to improve caregiver competence.  When a toy bag is used in a home visit, caregivers may not have the opportunity to practice the skills addressed in the visit because the therapist often takes the toys with them at the end of the session. [2] Bagless therapists are able to teach families how to use every day routines, such as a bath or mealtime, and every day materials, such as a cup or bowl, to increase their child’s skills.Children learn new skills through their interactions with their caregivers [4].  Therapists should strive to convey to parents that it is not a specific toy or two that are the change agents but instead it is the interaction between the child and the caregiver which has a greater effect on children’s skill development. This interaction can occur when using a variety of materials or no materials at all.  In bagless intervention materials should come from the family’s home (i.e., sorting socks, playing with measuring cups or plastic containers in the bathtub). Professionals can help caregivers consider ways to use and adapt the toys and items they already have to promote skill development during adult:child interactions.Bagless intervention is also flexible and individualized. This is especially important for military families who have unique circumstances and needs. A bagless approach provides therapists with the flexibility to meet a variety of military family needs, such as separation, reunification, and PTSD. A therapist who uses this approach can support military families by suggesting ways to include the military parent in the child’s intervention based on their unique circumstances.   For example, as bagless intervention sessions are not dependent upon a set of materials brought into the home, but instead what is already available, the familiarity of the items may bring a sense of security to a military member experiencing PTSD which may increase their self-confidence.  Additionally, when a deployed family member is able to call home, other family members can have the materials or supplies needed to engage the deployed member in an activity with their child to help promote development.Finally, bagless intervention is adaptable. Every home visit should be planned according to a family’s goals for their child.  In order to remain effective, professionals must be knowledgeable about a family’s routines, priorities, and needs. When a toy bag is not present on which the provider can rely, they must instead adapt intervention sessions to align with the routines and materials in the home while still addressing skills that are important to the family.  For example, if a family’s goal for their child is to use 2 word combinations to communicate their wants, a therapist must help the family think of materials in the home and aspects of their daily routines that support this goal. When caregivers are encouraged to embed goals into everyday routines they are able to support their child’s development with increased ease and confidence.1.  Dunst C., Espe-Sherwindt M. (2016).

Special Emphasis on Development of Renewable Energy in Region

first_imgStory Highlights Minister Paulwell noted that the growth in investment can be traced to countries with renewable energy-friendly policies. Jamaica remains committed to deepening regional collaboration. Following the Second Meeting of Energy Ministers of the Community of Latin American and Caribbean States (CELAC) in Montego Bay last week, special emphasis has been placed on the development of renewable energy in the region.Manager, CARICOM Energy Programme, Joseph Williams, said the decision to move forward with some specific actions around co-operation for renewable energy is significant for CARICOM countries, because it is advancing their priority objective.In an interview with JIS News, Mr. Williams pointed out that most of the CARICOM member states are net importers of energy and as such, have agreed in their regional policy to put priority focus on renewable energy development.This, he said, had been agreed at the level of Ministers. “The reality though is that there are constraints (across the region) as it relates to capacities, financial resources, knowledge base, technology and that is where co-operation as a part of a bloc, especially countries that have similar challenges but are also more advanced in their own development,  CARICOM can benefit,” he said.He noted that CARICOM also has some things to share, as small island developing states, that could be useful for some of the countries in CELAC, so it is a two-way process with significant gains to be had.Mr. Williams described the two-day meeting at the Montego Bay Convention Centre in St. James from August 24 to 25, as being very useful.“For me as a representative of the CARICOM Secretariat, it has been very useful. We got a good sense of what is happening in the other areas and where the opportunities are; and through the documents that have been put forward, we were able to make contribution in the interest of the CARICOM member states. So, I think it was a very useful and very satisfactory meeting…and there are some tangible outputs that will form the basis for action,” he informed.In the meantime, Minister of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining, Hon. Phillip Paulwell, while delivering the keynote address at the official opening ceremony on October 25,noted that the Latin American and Caribbean (LAC) region has been referred to as the new frontier in energy.“By stint of geography, it is well suited for the development of renewable energy sources,” he pointed out.The Minister informed that in 2006, the LAC had approximately 11.3 GW of generating capacity from renewable energy, which grew 135 per cent to 26.6 GW last year.“In 2012 LAC was the destination for six per cent of the world’s renewable investment; a US$16 billion slice of a US$268 billion pie. The investment is set to grow, but must be nurtured and facilitated by Government policy and initiatives,” he said.Minister Paulwell noted that the growth in investment can be traced to countries with renewable energy-friendly policies, such as tax incentives, feed-in tariffs, and net billing/metering arrangements.He also pointed out that to move to the prospect of increasing the contribution of renewable in the energy mix, in CELAC’s deliberations, it must actively consider and plan carefully to realize an energy future that promotes the sustainable use of all renewable energy resources – hydro, wind, solar, geothermal, biomass and ocean energy.The Minister said Jamaica remains committed to deepening regional collaboration. “We are proud to host this meeting and for the opportunity to work with our neighbours on as critical an issue as energy,” he added.Mr. Paulwell promised the country’s continued support for the work of CELAC, and the Latin American Energy Organisation (OLADE), which last year opened its sub-regional office in Kingston, which now serves the needs of Caribbean member states.“As the relationship deepens between the Caribbean and the rest of the region, we look forward to the recognition of the role CARICOM can play in defining and developing energy policies,” the Minister said. Most of the CARICOM member states have agreed in their regional policy to put priority focus on renewable energy development.last_img read more

Political will there to solve child welfare crisis for Indigenous kids Philpott

first_imgAPTN NewsThe federal government says it has a plan to take action against the crisis in child welfare.That includes shifting from apprehension to prevention and trying to keep children connected to their families and culture.Many of the reasons for over representation are well known – a lack of proper housing, poverty and inter-generational trauma.Another problem is the data, or lack of it.In an opening speech at a two-day emergency meeting on child welfare in Ottawa Thursday, Indigenous Services Minsiter Jane Philpott said the data available to count the number of Indigenous kids in care is not good enough and without an accurate measure you can’t properly understand what is wrong and fix it.An estimated 40,000 Indigenous children are in care across Canada, accounting for more than half of the kids in care overall, but Philpott said she doesn’t believe anyone actually knows the real number.She said the government has the political will to fix the crisis, including getting accurate data, but she won’t yet put deadlines or targets on reducing the number of kids in care and keeping more families together.Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami president Natan Obed says the discrepancies in services for Indigenous children are rooted in a lack of a basic level of respect for Indigenous families and culture.Philpott said the ultimate goal is Indigenous management of child welfare but Assembly of First Nations national chief Perry Bellegarde is urging First Nations to take control now and not wait for Ottawa or provincial governments to delegate the authority to them.-with files from The Canadian Presslast_img read more

The Week In College Football More Than Just BamaLSU

Stanford1161346%19%3% Penn State—2741<1%<1%<1% Oregon—2532<1%<1%<1% What to watch for this weekSECThe No. 4,1All the rankings I’m using in this article are the committee’s. one-loss Crimson Tide face No. 2, undefeated LSU in what is as close to a play-in game for the playoff as can be devised at this point in the season. Vegas has the Tide favored by about 6 points. That seems about right. After all, the game is in Tuscaloosa, and the FiveThirtyEight model gives home teams a 3.5-point advantage. But Alabama also has a slight edge over LSU according to FPI, despite its earlier loss to Ole Miss.The FiveThirtyEight model gives Alabama a 41 percent chance of making the playoff, largely because they’re favored in this game; LSU’s playoff odds are 30 percent. But let’s answer our first what-if question: How will those odds change after this game? My colleague Jay Boice ran additional simulations contingent on each team winning. In this thought experiment, if the Tide win, their odds would rise to 53 percent; but if the Tigers were to win, their odds would tick up to 45 percent. The Tigers’ odds are still lower, even if they beat Alabama, because their remaining schedule is so grueling. A road game against Ole Miss and a matchup with Texas A&M at home stand out on what is, going into this week, the toughest remaining schedule.(As a diehard fan who was born and raised in Baton Rouge, I’d like to be able to tell my fellow LSU faithful that these numbers favoring ’Bama are made up. But I can’t. What we Tiger fans do have going in our favor is Leonard Fournette, the Heisman Trophy favorite and, as Wright Thompson wrote, emerging legend.)Interestingly, though Alabama is favored to win and gets higher odds of making the postseason, because LSU is undefeated, the Tigers have higher odds (22 percent) of winning the conference, according to our model. (That’s because if LSU stumbles, Ole Miss is in position to win the SEC West with a tiebreaker over Alabama.) But beyond Alabama and LSU, Florida is waiting in the wings with an 18 percent chance of squeezing into the playoff. The Gators are looking like a good bet to win the SEC East, as they face only creampuffs for the remainder of their conference schedule; and if they emerge as a one-loss champion of the SEC, it will be hard for the committee not to include them.Big 12Baylor and TCU are putting up basketball scores each week. High-powered offenses drive the two highest-ranked teams according to FPI. Our model gives undefeated, No. 8 TCU the best chance of breaking into the playoff, even though Baylor is notionally better according to FPI. That’s because the Horned Frogs host the No. 6 Bears on Nov. 27 in what amounts to (assuming both teams are undefeated) a Big 12 championship game the conference never planned.The Big 12 is deep — very deep. Take this week’s biggest game: TCU faces No. 14 Oklahoma State. Although the Horned Frogs look strong according to our model — which gives them a 31 percent chance of making the playoff — the Cowboys can’t be ignored (they have a 6 percent chance themselves). The conference also includes a strong Oklahoma team, whom our model gives a 14 percent chance of making the postseason.Big TenThe FiveThirtyEight model gives No. 3 Ohio State the best odds of making the playoff: 61 percent. Furthermore, we give the Buckeyes a 16 percent chance of repeating as national champs. But look beyond them and you’ll see a strong conference, with the winner likely to be placed in the playoff.Ohio State has a difficult schedule ahead. Like the LSU vs. Alabama game this week, the Nov. 21 matchup against No. 7 Michigan State could be viewed as a de facto national quarterfinal game; Michigan State has a 22 percent chance of being in the final four. The winner likely will face currently undefeated Iowa in the Big Ten championship game.ACCAfter those three conferences, there’s a huge dropoff in quality. With the exception of Clemson, the ACC looks wobbly. That said, the undefeated Tigers are viewed favorably by the selection committee, which gave them their No. 1 ranking. Our model gives them a 51 percent chance of making the postseason (the best after Ohio State), but after them, Florida State is the next best ACC squad, with a 5 percent chance. That said, the Tigers face what is probably their toughest remaining challenge at home against the Seminoles on Saturday. If they survive, a what-if simulation we ran gives the Tigers a 61 percent chance of making the playoff. Furthermore, if they run the table in their remaining games, they’re likely to make the playoff (our model would put their chances at 99 percent), but if they don’t win out, the ACC champion won’t have a guaranteed spot. Why? Because if Clemson loses this week, our model would give both Clemson and FSU about a 15 percent chance.Pac-12What a total mess. Among Pac-12 teams, Stanford has the best chance of making the playoff, at 19 percent. Despite having just one loss, Utah does poorly in our model, registering a 6 percent chance — little better than unranked USC. FiveThirtyEight reckons that if Stanford does win out, it’s 90 percent likely to make the playoffs. In other words, the Pac-12 is not guaranteed a spot right now. To push the Cardinal’s odds up, Clemson would have to slip, and still a second team from the SEC or Big Ten might leapfrog the Pac-12 champ.Beyond The Power FiveThe best bet outside the five major conferences is No. 5 Notre Dame, with a 25 percent chance of making the playoff. Memphis and Houston, as impressive as they’ve been, stand only a 6 percent and 2 percent chance, respectively, of being included. In other words, the stellar mid-major teams should keep rooting for those in the major conferences to cannibalize each other. Good gosh o’mighty, what a college football season so far. It’s early November, and fans have already witnessed:a blocked punt that was returned for a touchdown as time expired;an eight-lateral kickoff return that was returned for a touchdown as time expired;a blocked field goal that was returned for a touchdown as time expired; andthe ongoing dominance of the next Herschel Walker.Amid all this excitement, in walks the selection committee to cut the ribbon on its first iteration of this season’s College Football Playoff (CFP) rankings. Unveiled over the next month, these CFP rankings will determine who plays in the second-ever four-team playoff. But reading the CFP tea leaves can be overwhelming.Confused by the CFP committee’s weird pronouncements? Fearful that Condoleezza Rice and her comrades will stab your team in the back? (Baylor and TCU fans, you know the feeling.) Trying to interpret the CFP rankings probably makes you feel like the Michigan guy who made his way around the Internet: Temple22324541%<1%<1% RankingProbability of … Mississippi St.201917<1%3%<1% Northwestern214257<1%<1%<1% Clemson17756%51%12% Oklahoma1516315%14%5% Michigan State731915%22%3% Mississippi18171020%8%2% Oklahoma St.14111415%6%1% Houston25233330%2%<1% Utah12152118%6%<1% Iowa9122925%7%<1% Michigan1722187%6%<1% FiveThirtyEight can’t stop the CFP from screwing your team, but we’re going to try to use numbers and our football knowledge to prevent you from being blindsided.Each week, we’ll break down the latest CFP rankings, preview the big upcoming games and explore what-if questions. As we did last year, we’ll take an iterative and probabilistic approach to project which four teams the CFP committee will select into the playoff on Dec. 6.We’ll cover the Power Five conferences and make a special effort not to ignore the mid-major darlings. Translation: we’ll show Memphis and Houston some love. And as a born-and-raised LSU fan, I’m obliged to exhibit a cocky and blatant SEC bias intended to solicit all your angry emails.Before we dive into the new rankings and preview games by conference, a few nitty-gritty details about the model are worth reiterating from what editor-in-chief Nate Silver has written in greater detail elsewhere on FiveThirtyEight:Game predictions are based on a tweaked version of ESPN’s Football Power Index (FPI) for each team.Based on game results, each team is given an Elo rating that reflects, primarily, its strength of schedule and, to a lesser extent, the margin of victory in its games.Each team is given a new projected ranking based on the previous week’s ranking, the outcome of the game it has just played and its Elo rating.Then the model iterates through the season’s remaining games and, using past coaches’ polls as a guide, tries to predict what the CFP committee will decide.Latest CFP RankingsJust like last year, the CFP committee angered Big 12 fans. Baylor and TCU were ranked sixth and eighth, respectively, while Ohio State is third. One-loss Alabama sneaked in at No. 4 and LSU at No. 2, a clear sign that the committee respects an SEC schedule. But the committee really has a penchant for Clemson, the squad at No. 1. That also helps Notre Dame, whose only loss is to Clemson. The committee puts the Fighting Irish just outside the party at No. 5. Florida State16131513%5%<1% TeamCFPEloFPIConf. TitlePlayoffNat.

Mens Basketball Ohio State coming off fourday rest with home matchup against

Ohio State senior forward Jae’Sean Tate (1) speaks with head coach Chris Holtmann in the first half in the game against Michigan on Dec. 4. Ohio State won 71-62. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOhio State men’s basketball (7-3, 2-0 Big Ten) returns from a four-day rest period at noon Saturday to host William and Mary (6-2). The Buckeyes had faced six teams over a 12-day stretch prior to the break, four of those games coming against opponents with winning records and one being against Wisconsin in Madison, that ended with a dramatic second-half, 71-62 victory against Michigan on Monday.Here is a rundown of what to expect in Ohio State’s matchup against William and Mary Saturday.Projected StartersWilliam and Mary:G — Matt Milon — Redshirt sophomore, 6-foot-5, 195 lbs., 15.0 ppg, 2.4 rpg, 0.8 apgG — Connor Burchfield — Senior, 6-foot-4, 180 lbs., 13.1 ppg, 2.9 rpg, 1.6 apgG — David Cohn — Redshirt senior, 6-foot-2, 168 lbs., 10.9 ppg, 3.4 rpg, 7.1 apgF/G — Justin Pierce — Sophomore, 6-foot-7, 168 lbs., 14.4 ppg, 9.5 rpg, 3.4 apgF — Nathan Knight — Sophomore, 6-foot-10, 235 lbs., 20.3 ppg, 8.6 rpg, 1.9 apgOhio State:G — C.J. Jackson — Junior, 6-foot-1, 175 lbs., 13.2 ppg, 4.6 rpg, 3.8 apgG — Musa Jallow — Freshman, 6-foot-5, 200 lbs., 4.9 ppg, 2.5 rpg, 1.3 apgF — Keita Bates-Diop — Redshirt junior, 6-foot-7, 235 lbs., 17.4 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 1.4 apgF — Jae’Sean Tate — Senior, 6-foot-4, 230 lbs., 13.3 ppg, 6.2 rpg, 3.0 apgC — Kaleb Wesson — Freshman, 6-foot-9, 270 lbs., 11.7 ppg, 4.3 rpg, 0.7 apgScouting William and MaryStatistically speaking, William and Mary is one of the better offenses Ohio State will face all season. The Tribe averages more than 86 points per game. It has done this by being extremely accurate shooting all season, ranking 19th in field-goal shooting percentage (50.8 percent) and second in 3-point shooting (47.3 percent).But what really has the Buckeyes nervous about the matchup has been the Tribe’s ability to shoot from 3-point range.Ohio State could barely keep up with Michigan in the first half of the game Monday, especially from beyond the arc. The Wolverine offense spread the Buckeye defense all over the court and opened up plenty of good looks from 3-point range. Michigan took advantage of those chances, shooting 7-for-16 in the first half. But Ohio State rallied in the second half to shut down Michigan’s ability to shoot the 3, holding them to just 1-for-12.Head coach Chris Holtmann said he hopes that second-half success against Michigan is able to carry over into a full game against William and Mary, but said he believes this is a better shooting team than the Wolverines.“They shoot it better than Michigan across the board,” Holtmann said. “They’ve got more prolific 3-point shooters than those [Michigan] guys. But they do have some similarities in how they play and certainly their ability to spread you out.”Four of the Tribe’s five starters have made at least 47.6 percent of 3-point shots this season, with the only exception being forward Nathan Knight. But Knight will provide his own challenges for the Buckeyes. The second-largest player on William and Mary’s roster in terms of both height and weight, Knight has been the catalyst for the Tribe’s offense this season. He is tied for 79th-most rebounds per game in the country with 8.6, and is tied at 43rd in points per game at 20.3. On the other end of the court, Knight has continued to be an oft-overwhelming force for he sits at No. 12 in the nation in blocked shots per game with 3.13.Joining Knight at the forward position is sophomore Justin Pierce. The power forward has also proven to be a prolific scorer with 14.4 points on the season, while shooting an effective 10-for-21 from beyond the arc. Pierce leads the team with 9.5 rebounds.Holtmann said that while his center Kaleb Wesson and forward Keita Bates-Diop will be charged with being the two primary defenders, the other three players on the court will also have to step up to provide coverage of the two Tribe forwards given William and Mary’s ability to spread the defense.“We’ve talked not just those two guys, but all of our guys about how we want to defend those,” Holtmann said. “[Knight’s] a really good athlete who can score in the low-post and score in the long-post as well. Then [Pierce] is what you’d expect with the kind of a spread-you-out four, type of a team . . . He’s a good athlete. He’s bouncy. He can make 3s that are really high clip.”The starting point guard for Ohio StateJunior guard C.J. Jackson began the season as Ohio State’s only true point guard, but did not start in either of the past two games for the Buckeyes against Wisconsin or Michigan. When asked after the game if Holtmann was trying to send a message, he stated emphatically that he was, and that turnovers were a big part of the reason he did not play. He is averaging 3.1 turnovers per game. Redshirt senior guard Kam Williams has started in his place in the lineup while senior forward Jae’Sean Tate has run the offense through the point.On Friday, Jackson and Holtmann talked about how beyond just the turnovers, Jackson needed to improve his communication and on-court leadership. However, coming off back-to-back games where Jackson came off the bench and racked up double-digit point totals, Holtmann said he “may start him” against William and Mary.“I think he knows that his minutes will be pretty consistent as long as he can continue to try to do what we’re asking him to do in terms of limiting his turnovers,” Holtmann said. read more
