Att tolka barns signaler : gravt utvecklingsstörda flerhandikappade barns lek och kommunikation by Jane Brodin( Book )

5 editions published in 1991 in 3 languages and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Written in Swedish with an English-language summary, this report describes a study which examined the interaction between mothers or caregivers and their children with profound mental retardation and multiple disabilities, particularly looking at the function of play in communicative interaction. The six children all had five or six handicaps in addition to profound retardation and between the ages of 1 to 10 years. The study involved interviews with parents, information from naturally occurring conversations, and videotape recordings of meal and play situations. Results indicated that the most important function of play was as a means of communication and learning. A four-phase pattern of interaction was found: (1) an impression-receiving phase with orientation; (2) an expressive phase with motor activity; (3) a pause with processing and preparation of an answer; and (4) a break or a limited reaction. Mothers' ability to interpret the children's signals was extremely context-dependent. The living conditions of the parents were an important factor in play, communication, and child development.

Evaluation of Still Picture Telephone for Mentally Retarded Persons. Telematics and Mental Retardation by Jane Brodin( Book )

4 editions published between 1991 and 1993 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the benefit of using a visual telecommunication system for Sweden's children and adults with mild to moderate mental retardation and speech difficulties. The Panasonic Image Communication Unit connects to standard modular telephones and includes a camera and monitor for the transfer of pictures. Units were placed in eight subjects' homes; day-activity centers; and the homes of friends, relatives, and support families. Results after 5 months indicated that four of the five adult users and two of the three child users (ages 6 to 12) increased their use of the telephone during the course of the project and attained a functional use of the system. It is concluded that the still picture telephone can contribute to increasing the possibilities for social contacts. This is based on the project findings that still picture telephoning gives both visual and auditory information, the frequency of usage increased over the course of the project, the motivation increased, telephoning became more independent, initiative to use the telephone increased, and the pictures became more relevant and functional. Appendices provide background information given to program participants and various recordkeeping forms. (27 references) (jdd)

Toy Libraries : Lekoteks in an International Perspective by Jane Brodin( Book )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This article reports a survey of members of the International Toy Library Association and others in order to describe the international toy library/lekotek movement today. Information from 37 countries was evaluated and the similarities and differences among the toy libraries/lekoteks identified, as well as the various philosophies, aims, and activities. Three main types of toy library/lekotek are described: (1) community oriented toy libraries; (2) lekoteks for children with disabilities; and (3) toy libraries that function as a cultural, social and recreational center. The common emphasis on the importance of play in child development is stressed. The lack of toy libraries in developing countries is noted, and the need to develop such services in these countries is considered. (Contains 19 references.) (DB)
Johanna and Tommy Two Preschoolers in Sweden with Brittle Bones by Kristina Millde( Book )

2 editions published in 1990 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Information is presented for caregivers of Swedish children with osteogenesis imperfecta (brittle bones) and their families. Approximately five children with brittle bones are born in Sweden annually. Two main types of brittle bone disease have been identified: congenita and tarda. Typical symptoms include numerous and unexpected fractures, bluish colored eyeballs, brittle teeth, protruding rib-cage, small stature, and in some cases, hearing impairment. There are inadequacies in the support that the government provides for families with osteogenesis imperfecta children. Various kinds of support available include rental and home assistance, home adaptation allowance, child care allowance, respite service, transportation assistance, subsidies for drugs and medical care, and technical aids. Habilitation services include toy libraries, preschool and leisure time centers, and the school system. Case studies of two preschool children are presented, based on family interviews, and are illustrated with photographs. A list of four suggested readings and four related readings is included. Brief descriptions of The Society for Disabled Children and Adolescents (Stockholm, Sweden) and WRP (Women Researchers in Play and Disability) International conclude the document. (JDD)
Minitrial : a Limited Study of the Use of Videotelephony for People with Moderate Mental Retardation. Technology, Communication and Disability, Report No. 7 by Jane Brodin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study examined the use of videotelephony by two men with moderate mental retardation attending a Swedish day center. This minitrial evaluated technical aspects of the equipment, understanding of how to use the videotelephones by people with moderate mental retardation, and general points of view from the staff. Both men had poorly developed spoken language skills using primarily augmentative and alternative communication. A system was designed based on a personal computer attached to a videotelephone, a camera, and appropriate software. Pictogram symbols were used to make communication simpler. Conclusions indicated: (1) the technical equipment must be improved, especially with regard to quality of sound and image, and the monitor must be improved; (2) the two users showed interest and motivation and used a variety of pictograms, but had difficulty accessing the right pictogram symbols; and (3) staff saw the videotelephony activity as time-consuming and expressed a need for deciding how much priority to give to the activity.

Still Picture Telephones for Persons with Profound Mental Retardation. Telematik och Handikapp, Rapport 92 : 9 (Telematics and Disability, Report 92:9) by Jane Brodin( Book )

1 edition published in 1993 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This project studied the use of still picture telephones by four Swedish adults (ages 25-45) with profound mental retardation and additional severe disabilities. After 5 to 6 months of subjects employing still picture telephones on a regular basis in their daily lives, relatives, staff from group homes, and other caregivers completed questionnaires on the devices' use and benefits for users. Results relate factors in the use of still picture telephones to personal/individual factors, communication, social networks, and systemic/infrastructural factors. The use of still picture telephones was found to make the content of communication clearer, increase the frequency of telephone use, promote later conversation, and allow for storage and retrieval of images used. Staff and family attitudes toward the process were found to be key factors in the establishment of still picture phones as part of daily life, and individual attention toward participants also contributed significantly.

Preschool Children with Disabilities in Sweden by Jane Brodin( Book )

2 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report examines preschools for children with disabilities in Sweden. In Swedish society the roles of the family and the environment are emphasized with the preschool serving as part of a family support system for children with disabilities. The value of a family oriented intervention is stressed. The first section discusses Swedish provision of state support for children with disabilities. Placement, usually in integrated preschool settings is then addressed. The section on the role of the preschool stresses the importance of communicating with parents, providing parents with support, understanding the emotional reactions of the preschool staff, the role of specialists, the role of the special assistant in the preschool class, and preparing for the child's arrival in preschool. An approach to handling problem situations in the preschool is then offered. The need for special resources is examined. The last section looks at the importance of play for children with disabilities, development of communication skills, and disability awareness. (Contains 21 references.) (Db)
