Download and read online PANS CANS and Automobiles in PDF and EPUB The alarming symptoms of Pediatric Acute-onset Neuropsychiatric Syndrome - sudden tics, OCD, and regressions in both learning ability and behavior - can leave families stunned. Moreover, when educators and mental health professionals attempt to provide those families with desperately needed help, those providers may soon discover that tools useful for addressing those symptoms in the general population are ineffective for the youth who is battling PANS. In this seminal work on PANS-related education, learning specialist, educator, and researcher Dr. Candelaria Greene PhD gives voice to the struggle that those extraordinary young people and families face. She offers a practical road map to assist those students through their unique academic challenges. Sprinkled with humor and poignant tones, Dr. Candelaria Greene provides an in-depth historical overview of PANS, followed by a discussion of how this multifaceted condition thwarts students' abilities both inside and outside of the classroom. She then reviews the processes and challenges of obtaining special education, accommodations, and other essential services, along with a detailed review of the ways in which laws in the United States support those essential interventions for students with PANS-related symptoms. The calling card of PANS is one of jagged dysfunction in multiple areas - along with healing and recovered function over time. Those symptoms require that providers look beyond 'a one-size-fits-all approach' when treating the PANS-affected child or young adult. Accordingly, Dr. Candelaria Greene provides continuums of educational support that are unique to each student's circumstances. Moreover, she provides 'signposts' to help the practitioner and parent identify those educational and special educational practices that will be most effective in the educational care of students with PANS. Finally, the book provides practical tools for providers and families alike through appendices that include a PANS check list, glossary, references, web resources, descriptors of OCD and tic disorders, and sample letters to initiate educational services.
Download and read online From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express in PDF and EPUB From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express takes readers on a compelling journey from the California Gold Rush to the present, letting readers witness both the profusion of Chinese restaurants across the United States and the evolution of many distinct American-Chinese iconic dishes from chop suey to General Tso’s chicken. Along the way, historian Haiming Liu explains how the immigrants adapted their traditional food to suit local palates, and gives readers a taste of Chinese cuisine embedded in the bittersweet story of Chinese Americans. Treating food as a social history, Liu explores why Chinese food changed and how it has influenced American culinary culture, and how Chinese restaurants have become places where shared ethnic identity is affirmed—not only for Chinese immigrants but also for American Jews. The book also includes a look at national chains like P. F. Chang’s and a consideration of how Chinese food culture continues to spread around the globe. Drawing from hundreds of historical and contemporary newspaper reports, journal articles, and writings on food in both English and Chinese, From Canton Restaurant to Panda Express represents a groundbreaking piece of scholarly research. It can be enjoyed equally as a fascinating set of stories about Chinese migration, cultural negotiation, race and ethnicity, diverse flavored Chinese cuisine and its share in American food market today.

Download and read online Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother in PDF and EPUB A lot of people wonder how Chinese parents raise such stereotypically successful kids. They wonder what Chinese parents do to produce so many math whizzes and music prodigies, what it's like inside the family, and whether they could do it too. Well, I can tell them, because I've done it... Amy Chua's daughters, Sophia and Louisa (Lulu) were polite, interesting and helpful, they were two years ahead of their classmates in maths and had exceptional musical abilities. But Sophia and Lulu were never allowed to attend a sleepover, be in a school play, choose their own extracurricular activities, get any grade less than an A, and not be the #1 student in every subject (except gym and drama). And they had to practice their instruments for hours every day, as well as in school breaks and on family holidays. The Chinese-parenting model certainly seemed to produce results. But what happens when you do not tolerate disobedience and are confronted by a screaming child who would sooner freeze outside in the cold than be forced to play the piano? In Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother, Amy Chua relates her experiences raising her children the 'Chinese way', and how dutiful, patient Sophia flourished under the regime and how tenacious, hot-tempered Lulu rebelled. It is a story about a mother, two daughters, and two dogs. It's also about Mozart and Mendelssohn, the piano and the violin, and how they made it to Carnegie Hall. It was supposed to be a story of how Chinese parents are better at raising kids than Western ones. But instead, it's about a bitter clash of cultures, a fleeting taste of glory, and how you can be humbled by a thirteen-year-old. Witty, entertaining and provocative, this is a unique and important book that will transform your perspective of parenting forever.

Download and read online Practicing What the Doctor Preached in PDF and EPUB Dr. James Dobson, PhD., founder of the conservative Christian foundation Focus on the Family, is well-known to the secular world as a crusader for the Christian right. But within Christian circles he is known primarily as a childrearing expert. Millions of American children have been raised on his message, disseminated through books, videos, radio programs, magazines, and other media. While evangelical Christians have always placed great importance on familial responsibilities, Dobson placed the family at the center of Christian life. Only by sticking to proper family roles, he argues, can we achieve salvation. Women, for instance, only come to know God fully by submitting to their husbands and nurturing their children. Such uniting of family life and religion has drawn people to the organization, just as it has forced them to wrestle with what it means to be a Christian wife, husband, mother, father, son, or daughter. Adapting theories from developmental psychology that melded parental modeling with a conservative Christian theology of sinfulness, salvation, and a living relationship with Jesus, Dobson created a new model for the Christian family. But what does that model look like in real life? Drawing on interviews with mothers, fathers, sons, and daughters, Practicing What the Doctor Preached explores how actual families put Dobson's principles into practice. To what extent does Focus shape the practices of its audience to its own ends, and to what extent does Focus' understanding of its members' practices and needs shape the organization? Susan B. Ridgely shows that, while Dobson is known for being rigid and dogmatic, his followers show surprising flexibility in the way they actually use his materials. She examines Focus's listeners and their changing needs over the organization's first thirty years, a span that saw the organization expand from centering itself on childrearing to entrenching itself in public debates over sexuality, education, and national politics.
