Child Poverty and Social Exclusion in Europe A matter of children’s rights

by Veneta Kuyova - Friday, 5 January 2018, 11:26 AM
 

Description 

This research looks at the broad causes and effects of child poverty and social exclusion. It can be concluded that redistributive state interventions, along with employment (salaries and conditions), have the greatest influence on child poverty. European countries with high inequality in employment conditions and with social  transfer systems that are unable to redistribute wealth to benefit the most disadvantaged children have the highest rates of child poverty or social exclusion.

Language as a Child Well-being Indicator

by Admin EASPD - Thursday, 11 April 2019, 3:29 PM
 


Description

Early language acquisition has an impact on each aspect of young children’s non-physical development. It contributes to their ability to manage emotions and communicate feelings, to establish and maintain relationships, to think symbolically, and to learn to read and write.The UK prevalence rate for early language difficulties is between 5% and 8% of all children, and over 20% for those growing up in low-income households. The high prevalence among disadvantaged children is thought to contribute to the achievement gap that exists by the time children enter school and continues until they leave.

Modele de Buna Practica in Cazul Anuntului Diagnosticului de Sindrom Down

by Admin EASPD - Tuesday, 27 February 2018, 2:58 PM
 

Description

In every family, the arrival of a child in the world is an expected moment and filled with a lot of emotion. For 9 months, the parents discuss and make plans for the new born child. If the child is born with a disability or Down Syndrome, parents feel that the world is crashing around them. Because it is a diagnosis that can be putted at birth or in the first days of life, the professionals play a very important role in announcing and discussing with parents their child's disability. Medical staff must be open and available to provide sufficient information to parents to understand the child's diagnosis and to guide them to other specialized institutions dealing with the disability.
