Veselá, Markéta ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Valešová Malecová, Barbara (referee)
This thesis deals with the evaluation of a self-designed occupational therapy programme to support children with physical disabilities in their transition to primary school. The aim of the research is to test the effectiveness of this programme. The theoretical background explores the concepts of occupational therapy and physiotherapy in educational settings, their role in paediatrics and the impact of physical disability on school adjustment. It also focuses on the importance of movement, sensory integration and well-being in relation to successful school adjustment. The transition to primary school for the child with physical disabilities and the preparation of the family environment and the child itself for this step are other topics of this thesis. A further aim is to determine whether the programme can be used by teachers as part of an educational curriculum. The final section shows how an occupational therapy programme can be integrated into the regular school environment and how it can contribute to the successful integration of children with physical disabilities into a new school environment. The methodological section describes the research methods used, including intervention evaluation research and the plan for testing the programme. The empirical section then presents the occupational...

Wodere, Veronika ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Zakouřilová, Hana (referee)
This thesis focuses on the topic of the transition of people with disabilities from the school environment to working life. The thesis is divided into a theoretical and a practical part. The theoretical part presents key topics related to the transition of people with disabilities from school to the labour market, such as support in education, employment and independent living, transition programmes, employment choices and job opportunities. For the practical part, qualitative research was chosen to explore, using unstructured narrative interviews, the transition between school and employment for people with more severe physical disabilities who already have work experience. Social support from friends was found to play a key role in the job search process. Respondents had a limited choice of high schools, often opting for schools with secondary school diplomas in order to continue their studies at university, but at the same time choosing their field of study according to the school they required to be barrier- free and experienced in teaching pupils with disabilities. Motivation to seek employment was mainly financial and the desire to be useful to the labour market, while respondents did not want to spend all their time non-productively at home. None of the respondents used the transition...

Title of disertation work: Motor skills of preschool-age children Author: Zuzana Palounková Department: Special Education Department Supervisor: doc. PhDr. Bohumil Stejskal, CSc. ABSTRACT This dissertation deals with the issues in motor skills in pre-school children. The first part of the dissertation introduces basic theoretical background in relation to motion, refers to developmental stages and principles in motor development, and deals with the functioning of the motor system. Motor ability and skills are defined as basic preconditions for successful motor performance. The issues related to the developmental disorders in coordination (dyspraxia) are also discussed. The second part of the dissertation introduces the actual research aimed at detecting motor weakening, especially in the area of coordination ability, in pre-school children. Therefore, a diagnostic screening tool was made in order to map the state of coordination abilities in pre-school children. The screening test helps to detect deficits in motor skills at an early stage.

Skalická, Adéla ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Mužáková, Monika (referee)
This bachelor's thesis focuses on the quality of the partner relationship of parents who have a child with a physical or combined disability. The goal of the work is to describe the quality of their relationship, what difficulties parents face in everyday life, and what factors help them strengthen the relationship. Quantitative research was used to achieve these goals, namely the questionnaire method with closed, semi-open and open questions. The questionnaire was used to collect data from parents of children with physical or combined disabilities and their partners. The summary of the results indicates that a child with a physical or combined disability can have a significant effect on the partner relationship of the parents. However, it is not possible to say unequivocally whether this influence has a positive or negative effect. This complicated life situation ends some relationships forever, while others, on the contrary, strengthen and create an unbreakable bond between partners. The results show that diverse families with children with disabilities have many specific and unique concerns. However, it turns out that some difficulties are very similar. This bachelor's thesis provides a comprehensive view of the quality of the partner relationship of parents of children with physical or combined...

Krčilová, Radka ; Hájková, Vanda (advisor) ; Zakouřilová, Hana (referee)
Muscular dystrophy is a serious congenital disease that is currently incurable. There are many types of this disease, and one of its forms is Duchenne muscular dystrophy, which mainly affects boys and shortens their lives to a few decades. The absence of dystrophin in the muscles is manifested by the weakening of the muscles and their gradual loss. Boys soon lose the ability to walk and other momentum. At the same time, heart function, breathing, and bone quality are compromised. Such a life is not easy for a boy. Fatigue, lethargy, frustration come along with puberty. They have to get used to frequent medical examinations and checks, stretching exercises, various rehabilitations and stays in the spa. He needs to start asking for help and gradually asking for it more often and in many ways, eventually in almost all of them. Not only he needs psychological support, but also the caring family. The work seeks an answer to the question of what the quality of life with this disease can be, how it is experienced by the young person himself, and how it is seen by someone involved in the care. It describes this quality of life in different time periods gradually. Answers were also sought to the question of whether more could be done for the quality of life of these boys, e.g. through greater awareness of...
