Contribution of individually created educational materials for pupils with ASD
Plachá, Lenka ; Klenková, Jiřina (advisor) ; Korandová, Zuzana (referee)
The bachelor thesis is in the field of special pedagogy and deals with the benefits of individually created educational materials for students with ASD. The theoretical part defines the issues of autism spectrum disorders, diagnosis and etiology. One of the sections of the first chapter describes associated disorders such as epilepsy, sleep disorders, gastrointestinal disorders and food intake. These problems often occur in children with low- functioning autism and mental disabilities. Furthermore, this part of the work deals with the education of pupils with ASD with associated mental disabilities and impaired communication skills according to the Education Act, and the possibilities of medication of these pupils to eliminate demanding behavior. The practical part is focused on expanding the vocabulary by the method of global reading using structured and visualized educational materials, which we create for students to suit their needs. Motivation is also an important factor, which is why we use motifs from the areas of children's interests in the materials. The aim is to understand students' new concepts and improve their communication skills, which makes it easier for them to understand social situations and this in turn leads to the elimination of challenging behavior and increase the quality...

Říhová, Alena

The theoretical part sums up the current information related to the terminology, symptomatology, etiology, diagnostics and special-education or therapeutic approach to the individuals with autism spectrum disorder. Due to the orientation of this paper we are taking closer look at the specific features of impaired communication abilities of the selected clientele. The practical part aims at both the analysis of the current situation of speech therapy provided in the Czech Republic and the supply of comprehensive information (recommendations) for its implementation with the people suffering from autistic disorders. Questionnaire was selected as the main method to analyze the speech therapy provided, distributed to three homogenous groups of respondents (clinical speech therapists, special education teachers and parents of the children with autism spectrum disorder). The main objective of the step was to collect feedback related to the subject issues from three different points of view. The second chapter of this paper is divided into specific parts dealing e.g. with the issue of establishing contact with a...

Autism spectrum disorderčs in the education system of the secondary nursing schools
Niederlová, Veronika ; Zemková, Jaroslava (advisor) ; Němec, Zbyněk (referee)
Autism spectrum disorders (ASD) are characterized by deficits in the areas of communication and social interaction, stereotypic behaviour and changes in the sensory processing. These symptoms pose challenges to everyday situations such as visits to the doctor's office, which are more stressful for children with ASD and their parents than for the general population. Furthermore, more than one-third of parents have encountered refusal to provide medical care for their child because of ASD. In our diploma project, we combined the parent's reports with an analysis of international sources to create a project called AutFriendly which aims to increase the knowledge of the Czech healthcare practitioners about ASD. In the presented thesis, we summarize the theoretical background in the field of healthcare provision for people with ASD and we review current Czech and international literature to show how the topic of ASD is addressed in the education of healthcare practitioners. In the practical part of the thesis, we summarize our two-year experience with the AutFriendly project. First, we created a two- hour AutFriendly workshop for the students of secondary schools of nursing and we put it into practice with more than 250 participating students of the Czech secondary schools of nursing. Second, we...
