Inclusive practice for students with neurodevelopmental disorders in Sweden

for children and adolescents with NDDs in school is educational inclusion. It aims to achieve adaptation of the environment to the diverse prerequisites and needs of individuals, instead of demanding of individuals to cope with the challenges of a given context themselves exclusively (7). While many countries have transformed from a perspective that children with NDDs cannot be educated adequately in regular schools and require special school settings to that almost all children with NDDs should

Estimating the population mean using a continuous sampling design dependent on an auxiliary variable

Continuous distribution of variables under study and auxiliary variables are considered. The purpose of the paper is to estimate the mean of the variable under study using a sampling design which is dependent on the observation of a continuous auxiliary variable in the whole population. Auxiliary variable values observed in this population allow to estimate the inclusion density function of the sampling design. The variance of the continuous version of the Horvitz-Thompson estimator under the

This meant that they were restricted to developing independence skills and obedience: arguably the antithesis of Habilitation, despite encouraging independence. Public opinion during the turn of the twentieth century acknowledged that ‘intellectual disabilities’ could not be fully compensated for, despite specialist schooling. Individuals with developmental disabilities were institutionalized until 1920 to 1960, where inclusion

Difficulties in differentiating the nature of ascites based on ultrasound imaging

Transabdominal ultrasound not always allows to determine the nature of ascites based solely on its characteristics. Aim: The aim of the study was to present difficulties in determining the nature of ascites using transabdominal ultrasonography solely based on extra-organ lesions as well as, after the inclusion of the overall abdominal assessment and the clinical picture. Materials and methods: A total of 18 patients with non-neoplastic ascites and 62 patients with neoplastic ascites whose final

The Missing Link: A Collaborative Approach to Early Childhood Orientation and Mobility

The current role of the Orientation & Mobility (O&M) instructor routinely involves working with young children (birth to 6 years). The inclusion of this population to the caseload of O&M instructors brings with it unique challenges. Young children’s primary means of learning comes in the form of play, yet O&M traditionally tends to focus on skill specific instruction. For young children who are blind or vision impaired the ability to move out into space independently and

For example, based on the frequency distribution of the 311 RT samples from this study, and using a cut-off value of 69 IU/L, only one unit of blood would have been eliminated based on the difference between time zero and 72 hours. It was concluded that RT would be the storage of choice for 72 hours, since the tendency of ALT levels to decrease during storage at 4°C could make possible the inclusion

Its inclusion in the discussion with which this paper concludes seems recommendable, as it indicates the need for more systematic efforts towards a spatially-integrated approach to this kind of modelling problems.

Parametric prediction of finite population total under Informative sampling and nonignorable nonresponse

In this paper, we combine two methodologies used in the model-based survey sampling, namely the prediction of the finite population total, named T, under informative sampling and full response, see Sverchkov and Pfeffermann  (2004), and the prediction of T with a noninformative sampling design and the nonignorable nonresponse mechanism, see Eideh (2012). The former approach involves the dependence of the first order inclusion probabilities on the study variable, while the latter involves
