Šustová, Kateřina ; Valešová Malecová, Barbara (advisor) ; Šumníková, Pavlína (referee)
The diploma thesis Use of ergotherapy fro Down's syndrome in preschool age deals with the use of ergotherapy as a tool for the development of fine and gross motor skills in children with Down syndrome in preschool age. The work consists of two parts. The theoretical part defines the issue of Down syndrome, then describes the specifics of the development of a child with an intellectual disability in preschool age, with a focus on the development of fine and gross motor skills, and the last part summarizes the current knowledge about ergotherapy and its use in children with Down syndrome in preschool age. The second part describes the design of an occupational therapy program focused on the development of fine and gross motor skills in children with Down syndrome and then verifies its applicability in practice through action research. Three children wit Down syndrome aged of four to five were involved in the usability testing and their progress in individual fine and gross motor skills was compared. The results of the research show that the proposed program is usable in practice and at the same time give suggestions for its modifications for further use.
Relationships of People With Multiple Disabilities
Ramseidlová, Dana ; Šumníková, Pavlína (advisor) ; Šiška, Jan (referee)
1 ABSTRACT The thesis deals with the topic of partner relationships of people with multiple disabilities. The academic literature does not pay enough attention to this issue. However, knowledge in this area is essential for the proper integration of individuals into society and for ensuring their opportunities to develop social relationships comparable to those seen in mainstream intact society. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to identify the characteristics of partnership cohabitation of people with combined disabilities. To this end, a qualitative research investigation was conducted in the form of structured interviews. The research sample consisted of a total of 13 respondents, 11 persons with combined disabilities and 2 senior staff members of the Jedlička Institute. The thesis provides a detailed insight into the formation and functioning of partnership relationships and identifies the determinants that influence these relationships through the open coding method. The main finding of the analysis is the negative connotation of the identified determinants, which thus represent rather barriers preventing the formation of relationships. This finding represents a challenge not only for social service workers but also for individuals with disabilities to find ways to overcome these barriers. KEYWORDS...

The aim of this bachelor's thesis is to investigate the various possibilities for the development of mobility in a child with dual sensory disabilities. The work is conducted by the method of analysis of professional literature and other available sources that may relate to the researched topic. The introductory part of the thesis focuses on theoretical knowledge that helps in introducing the issue and defining the concept of deafblindness. Furthermore, the thesis deals with the etiology, possible causes and diseases that can cause the given disability. In the next chapters, among other things, the work will offer various forms of communication, methods and problems, as well as the possibilities of education and development of a child with deafblindness. Due to the lack of literature written in Czech, the research part of the work consists of an analysis of professional literature and other available sources, which examines Czech and foreign literature related to the development of mobility in a child with deafblindness. One of the main tasks of the chosen method - literary research, is to create a comprehensive and complete overview of current literature, in which we can find the researched topic and, based on a thorough analysis of the professional literature, subsequently offer a set of selected...

Káchová, Viola ; Šumníková, Pavlína (advisor) ; Květoňová, Lea (referee)
This bachelor thesis focuses on the issue of a family with a child with severe multiple disabilities. The first three sections explain the concepts of combined disability, cerebral palsy and the family of a child with severe multiple disability. The actual research investigation follows a selected family with a child with a severe multiple disability. The aim of this paper is to find out how the selected social groups affected the selected family and to answer the set questions: what does caring for a bedridden child entail and what impact does this have on the child's family? Has the social circle around the family changed since the child with a disability entered the family? How does this affect siblings and which social areas of life are affected? The research inquiry is qualitative in nature and is completed through interview and observation. The interview was coded according to predetermined areas based on the sources studied. The results of this thesis contribute to a deeper understanding of the issue of families of children with severe multiple disabilities.

How sibling constellations can be affected by health disadvantage
Plachá, Lenka ; Květoňová, Lea (advisor) ; Šumníková, Pavlína (referee)
The diploma thesis on the topic "How sibling constellations can be affected by health disadvantage" deals with mapping the influence of living with a sibling with a disability and the effect of the family environment and relationships on intact siblings in the field of career choice and attitudes towards planning one's own parenthood. Furthermore, it also examines the possible influence of the gender of the intact sibling on the aforementioned areas. The aim of the research investigation was therefore to find out whether intact siblings in adulthood tend to work in helping professions, specifically whether living with a sibling with a disadvantage led them to choose a profession with persons with disabilities and also whether it influenced their attitude towards their own parenting. Qualitative research was used for the investigation, specifically the design elements of grounded theory. An in-depth, semi-structured interview with five respondents, adult siblings of persons with various types of health handicaps (autism spectrum disorders, Down's syndrome, cerebral palsy) was used to obtain data. The interviews were analyzed using open coding. The answers to the research questions are documented by verbatim citations of respondents' answers in individual categories. Since only elements of grounded...
