Dr Lee Wilkinson
I have found Lee Wilkinson's comments on LinkedIn and his blog very insightful. It is easy to read and has just the right combination of academic jargon and teacher speak to help me form a clear understanding of his views. Worth reading.
My Asperger's Child
It is a daunting task to get to grips with the complexities of Asperger's Syndrome. This blog is very useful when it comes to understanding personality types and where a person falls on the spectrum. It is worth noting that there is a very big difference between personality types and personality disorders when getting to grips with Asperger's Syndrome.
Preventing behaviour problems: what works
The International Academy for Education and INTERNATIONAL BUREAU OF EDUCATION published this booklet on behaviour strategies. The proposed strategies are very broad based. The booklet proposes that the principles will prevent a variety of behaviour difficulties: that being said, we know one size never fits all. However, I think the principles in the booklet are solid and it is worth a read.
Children that Murder: Attachment Theory
Parricide and high School massacres have become so common that the news doesn't spare more than a headline on cases such as Daniel Bartlam or view here in the UK that the USA has become The Land of the High School Massacre. The question why children murder resonates even 19 years after the death of the 2 year old James Bulger who was murdered by two 10 year old boys.
Attachment Theory provides a poignant answer to many questions about delinquent behaviour and might even shed light on the question why do children murder. However it raises even more questions about working mothers and single parent families? Are we looking and a mental health pandemic brought on by economic realities of our modern society?
