The Significance of Diversity for Special Educational Thinking
Prouzová-Květoňová, Regina ; Titzl, Boris (advisor) ; Kysučan, Jaroslav (referee) ; Vítková, Marie (referee)
To elucidate the relation between human beings and diversity, to find the means for its integration, and to expose the attitudes that society has had and still has to diversity - this is the objective of this dissertation. Diversity, dissimilarity, these are general terms that cover persons with physical handicaps, social disadvantages, mental handicaps, as well as members of ethnic and religious minorities and people in extreme situations. The author's intent was to collect a large number of cases where diversity, thus broadly conceived, is perceived as an advantage or as a condition that one can come to terms with, with or without the assistance of others. Human society has treated and still treats otherness disapprovingly, with disdain or scorn. These interrelations, which are manifested across all culture and history, may be helpful to the professionals and the people on the other side - the disadvantaged. They can help them find a path to pursue and pass to an understanding of oneself in one's otherness and to understand others that have found themselves under the sway of otherness. The directions outlined in the individual chapters suggest different ways of facing differences. Each chapter makes a different contribution to a special branch of study, focusing on a specific area, and analysing...

Kovářová, Renata ; Stejskal, Bohumil (advisor) ; Hájková, Vanda (referee) ; Kysučan, Jaroslav (referee)
Contemporary period and situation puts a lot of demands on individual members of the society, especially on their individual using skills and successfulness from one's childhood to adulthood. That is the reason why every society can't risk the potential of its people. Also Czech representatives became aware of this situation. To support talents and abilities of people lots of new projects are arising, f.e. Project Czech Head ("Projekt Česká hlava") which has the part called Little Heads ("Projekt České hlavičky"), organized since 2007 for Czech high-school students of technical and natural science branches. In co- operation of the Czech Senate and Parliamen chairman is also announced the competition for european students called Innovating Minds (since 2008). All the professionals who deal with this problem are aware of the fact that the number of successful members of society raise due to effective support and education of children since the early childhood. Pupils with the exceptional talents, according to the valid Czech law, are placed and classified as the pupils with special needs. Our contemporary trend in education of pupils and students with special needs is integration in possible way in dependence of the real needs and demands. Of course, the same law is valid and belongs to extraordinary...

Dousková, Eva ; Stejskal, Bohumil (advisor) ; Kysučan, Jaroslav (referee) ; Kucharská, Anna (referee)
TITLE: Specific speech finding AUTHOR: Eva Dousková DEPARTMENT: Special Education Department SUPERVISOR: doc. PhDr. Bohumil Stejskal, CSc. ABSTRACT: The aim of this disseration work is to map the frequency of specific logopedic findings in children with specific learning and behavioral disorders. The first five chapters are theorethical and describe the specific logopedic findings in details. The author herein defines the terms "speach", "language", "communication and developmental disorders of communication"; moreover she also analyses the one specific speach disorder frequently mentioned in literature in conjunction with specific learning disorders, and also precisely describes each specific logopedic finding. The last chapter characterizes specific learning and behavioral disorderds, focusing especially on dyslexia and dysorthographia - both frequently associated with specific logopedic findings. The practical part consists of pre-research and research by itself. The two main and four partial aims have been established, which all have been verified by three methods: the test of speach sense, 6 subtests of Heidelberg test of speach development and by rough examination of specific assimilations and articulation imperfections. The analysis, the interpretation of the results and final discussion could be...

TITLE: Changes in life quality of persons with mental disability on the back-ground of Vincentinum AUTHOR: Jaromír Hublar DEPARTMENT: Department of Special Pedagogy SUPERVISOR: Doc. PhDr. Boris Titzl, Ph.D. ABSTRACT: Quality of life is a positive value for persons with mental disabity. Their limited intellectual abilities change their understanding of life quality comparing with other people. Although they have capability of certain rationale overview, it involves stronger emphasis on emotional aspects of everyday experienced events. The meaningful work is of specific importance for their experiencing. It was shown that working activities can be realized in two ways: i) by working education focused on evaluable results of purpose-focused work and ii) by working "therapy". The latter has obtained specific forms in Vincentinum: We developed working "therapy" either as real working rehabilitation or as a moto-pedagogic form of working education. In general, three different lines (medical, pedagogical and social-charitable) can be distinguished in working education with validity wider than for Vincentinum. Working education, or more precisely, therapy, is a principal element of each educative support of people with mental disabilities. This can be demonstrated by developmental changes of special institutes,...

The phenomenon of dementia in the context of human rights
Mužáková, Monika ; Titzl, Boris (advisor) ; Stejskal, Bohumil (referee) ; Kysučan, Jaroslav (referee)
The main aim of the doctoral thesis is to contribute to the better knowledge of the means by which the notion of the phenomenon "developmental disabilities" (mental disabilities) was created in the past, and which existential opportunities result from this for the life of a mentally challenged person. What does this phenomenon mean for us today? How do we understand the questions related to the existential needs of mentally challenged people in the context of human rights? I searched for the clarification of the ways by which the phenomenon of mental disability was shaped throughout the history of the development of the views of the human mind, body and soul. That is the reason why I define the notion of mental disability from the point of the views of the human mind and in connection with simultaneous growth in the knowledge of human body. Chapter II is shaped by my study of principal human experience with mental differences since mythical notions of a human being. I devote my attention to the ancient knowledge of the substance of mental diseases, derived from the attempts of the first scientific, rational studies of human body. The Middle Ages enriched the care for people with mental impairment - among which the mental disability was also ranked though in phenomenology undistinguished, - by the element of...
