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

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 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.

Is pneumoperitoneum the terra ignota in ultrasonography?

;between the diaphragm and the liver (Chilaiditi syndrome). It seems that the inclusion of a US examination to the E-FAST method in order to detect free gas in the peritoneal cavity is justifi ed since it is a sign of gastrointestinal perforation in numerous cases, andis clinically as relevant as the presence of free fluid.

Usefulness of ultrasonography in the diagnosis of hematoma after primary hip arthroplasty

: Inclusion criteria: coxarthrosis. Exclusion criteria: primary and secondary coagulopathy, renal or hepatic failure and history of venous or arterial thrombo­sis. In total, 90 patients were enrolled. Methods: The study was prospective. The patients were assigned into groups in accordance with simple randomization. On the third day post-surgery, an ultrasound examination was conducted in all patients. Results: Deep infection was found in two patients with suction drainage. Hematoma was almost twice

Effectiveness of different psychological interventions in reducing fixed orthodontic pain: A systematic review and meta-analysis

(1984-2019), Cochrane Library (Issue 1 of 2019), CBMdisk (1978-2019) and CNKI (1994-2019) databases to identify randomised clinical trials (RCTs), which used psychological interventions to relieve pain during fixed orthodontic treatment. Specific inclusion and exclusion criteria were applied to identify relevant articles. The data were extracted independently by two reviewers and a quality assessment was carried out by using the Cochrane Collaboration ‘risk of bias’ tool. Meta-analyses

Clinical evidence in the treatment of white spot lesions following fixed orthodontic therapy: a meta-analysis

Objective: This systematic review aims to determine the most effective method of treatment to remineralise post-orthodontic white spot lesions (WSLs). Method: Six databases were accessed and searched for articles. Screening and selection were conducted according to the PRISMA guidelines using predetermined inclusion and exclusion criteria. Two reviewers independently assessed and extracted identified studies and relevance disagreement was resolved through consensus. Experimental studies were

Results: 6 non-randomized control studies met the inclusion criteria. Collectively, these included 236 patients with a mean age ranging from 18 to 41.2 years. The quality of these articles ranged between moderate and high based on the methodological index for non-randomized studies score. The mean sensitivity was 88.95% (standard deviation 10.03

Responses of Anastrepha suspensa, Diachasmimorpha longicaudata, and Sensitivity of Guava Production to Heterorhabditis bacteriophora in Fruit Fly Integrated Pest Management

infested guavas were treated with increasing Heterorhabditis bacteriophora infective juvenile (IJ) concentration or rate (0, 25, 50, …, 1,600 IJs cm−2) in field trials to measure the optimum IJ rate and then examine sensitivity of producing guavas to inclusion of Heterorhabditis bacteriophora in Caribfly IPM plans. Relative survival of Caribfly in treatments significantly decreased with increasing IJ rate from 0 to 100 IJs cm−2. Similarly, probability of observing large numbers of parasitoid wasps

Method-specific and unexplained reactivity in automated solid-phase testing and their association with specific antibodies

for 2 years using two automated solid-phase instruments that used the same three-cell antibody detection test. Antibody identification was performed with solidphase panels supplemented with a polyethylene glycol tube method as needed. Of the 1934 (5%) samples with a positive antibody detection test, 29 had unavailable work-up data, leaving 1905 (98.5%) samples eligible for inclusion in the study. The data revealed the following: Ab only 999 (52.4%); UR only 429 (22.5%); Ab and UR 227 (11.9%); NS

A simple screening assay for the most common JK*0 alleles revealed compound heterozygosity in Jk(a–b–) probands from Guam

screening assay was cost-efficient when compared with DNA sequencing costs. Furthermore, selection of the more common JK*0 mutations was a practical approach that resulted in rapid identification of the genetic bases behind the Jk(a–b–) phenotypes in this unusual family. Although an obvious target for eventual inclusion into high-throughput genotyping platforms for clinical diagnostic services, current systems are very limited. Our approach provides a simple and inexpensive method for the

With the help of the implementation of partial SEIA, we selected the most suitable corridor for the prospective new railway line in this part of Slovenia. We ascertain that SEIA is an appropriate instrument for evaluating the social, economic, and partly also spatial impacts of transport infrastructure planning and construction. Therefore, we suggest that it would be advisable to consider its future inclusion in

As a result of the analysis, a new digital transport model of the sea passenger port was built, which has a high level of detail and accuracy of process implementation, high productivity and efficiency of analysis of various infrastructure changes in the port, allowing the inclusion of dynamic changes from the external environment. The numerical model has been fully implemented for this port, and new conclusions have been derived

A review of ultrasonographic methods for the assessment of the anterior cruciate ligament in patients with knee instability – diagnostics using a posterior approach

AimThe purpose of the study was to improve the ultrasonographic assessment of the anterior cruciate ligament by an inclusion of a dynamic element. The proposed functional modification aims to restore normal posterior cruciate ligament tension, which is associated with a visible change in the ligament shape. This method reduces the risk of an error resulting from subjectively assessing the shape of the posterior cruciate ligament. It should be also emphasized that the method combined with other

Inclusion criteria for the two groups were at least three of the following: (1) an ANB angle of 1 degree or less, (2) a Wits appraisal less than -4 mm, (3) an incisal overjet ≤ 0 mm, and (4) a Class III molar relationship. All lateral cephalograms were traced and digitised and a number of skeletal, dental and soft tissue variables were
