A educação em saúde odontológica depende da comunicação, que garanta de fato o conhecimento e adoção das medidas preventivas no cotidiano das crianças, sendo de extrema importância quando se deseja mudar atitudes em relação á doença, priorizando a promoção de saúde. Os programas educativos estão previstos na Política Nacional de Saúde Bucal e devem contemplar o acesso universal a todos os cidadãos. Neste contexto é necessário reconhecer o preparo dos profissionais de odontologia quanto às práticas de comunicação e informação utilizadas para desenvolver hábitos adequados de manutenção da saúde bucal com pacientes com perda de audição.A perda auditiva é um déficit sensorial muito comum e causa grande desvantagem de comunicação. A falta de comunicação leva á desigualdades no acesso á saúde e o desconhecimento sobre cuidados com a saúde bucal representa um fator a ser considerado. Este estudo se propôs a avaliar o conhecimento sobre saúde bucal de pais e professores em escolas especiais de educação para crianças surdas que se comunicam através da Língua Brasileira de Sinais (Libras), e o conhecimento de cirurgiões-dentistas sobre as questões relacionadas ás estratégias de comunicação com pacientes surdos. A conclusão deste estudo enfatiza a necessidade de programas educativos que contemplem ás especificidades de uma criança surda através de parcerias estabelecidas entre a escola...

O Distúrbio do Espectro do Autismo caracteriza-se como uma síndrome comportamental complexa, que compromete o processo do desenvolvimento ao longo da vida, ocorrendo uma grande variabilidade na intensidade e forma de expressão da sintomatologia, nas áreas que definem o seu diagnóstico. Pessoas com autismo necessitam de atenção especial durante toda a vida e é necessário voltar a atenção também para cuidador. O estresse parental da família de uma criança com autismo é significantemente maior do que o observado em famílias de crianças com desenvolvimento típico ou outras deficiências. A comunicação é um aspecto especialmente afetado nos quadros de autismo e pode ser potencializadora do estresse, sendo uma das primeiras preocupações dos pais. Assim foi indagado se, com relação à comunicação, o fato do filho com autismo não usar alguma fala para se comunicar teria relação com o aumento do nível de estresse dos pais. O Objetivo deste estudo foi investigar o nível de estresse de pais de crianças com autismo, verificando sua associação com a ausência de oralidade na comunicação de seus filhos. Participaram dessa pesquisa os pais de 75 crianças com autismo e pais de 100 crianças sem nenhuma queixa quanto ao desenvolvimento...

Handcrafts and design have a common ground and an essential difference: they share the ability to produce interface cultural objects but while the craftsman moulds, the designer projects. Design and handcraft share nowadays a new important characteristic since they meet a new market macro-trend that is expressed by the refusal of mass solutions and the demand of personalised products. Products able to perform in this area give the user a special sense of fulfilment since they become a communication channel, an extension of the self. This mechanism can be found in several products, able to establish with users a special and personalised dialog: the Portuguese lovers’ handkerchief, that is reinterpreted in it’s function by users; the Freitag bags, that invites users to define the message they will carry, participating in its production through selecting the recycled truck tarpaulin and the specific part to be used to manufacture the bag; and the “a-poc” Miyake’s cloth that requires the user to define the final design and to finish the piece. The paper goes through the analysis of these three cases and discusses the level of design-user interaction needed to meet the user in its own ground at a communication level. It also reflects over the cultural and communication grounds that link the work of craftsmen and designers.

The applicability of the information and communication technologies, especially mobile devices, to augmentative and alternative communication is relatively recent in Portugal. Their characteristics of universality and portability allow to access information, communicate through voice, image and writing, working, perform recreational activities and multiple others activities almost anywhere and any place. It also promotes skills development in people with special educational needs, like physical, cognitive and social skills, when using the appropriate adaptations and digital augmentative and alternative communication software or other applications adapted to their physical or sensory disabilities. The aim of this work is to reveal the state of the art about the use of information and communication technologies in the context of special educational and more specifically in augmentative and alternative communication in Portugal, supported on the literature review. We selected the Portal B-on – Online Knowledge Library, since it allows us to have a perspective of several databases repositories of scientific research. This literature review aim to analyze, summarize and interpret some studies carried out in Portugal that focus on the binomial: Information and Communications Technologies and children with Special Education Needs.

The emergence of the Internet and, more recently, on-line social networks has brought a new form of self-presentation, governed by the specific characteristics of the new medium. The so-called Computer Mediated Communication (CMC), which eliminates some of the constraints of face-to-face communication, and special features, such as easy maintenance of anonymity, introduced changes in how the individuals present themselves. Web 2.0 and its services have changed the process of content production, providing the possibility of former receptors to publish their content on Web, mostly in formats like text, static image or video. As in the off-line context, the way that users manage the content that they publish in the on-line platforms demonstrates the impression that they wish to give of themselves to the others. This paper aims to gain an understanding of the issues related to the particularities of different publication formats, under self-presentation of individuals on their Facebook profiles. To do this, we examined a sample of twenty Facebook profiles - 10 males and 10 females, aged between 18 and 48 years - during fifteen consecutive days, and particular attention was given to the audiovisual content published. The choice of the sample aimed to understand the differences in self-presentation between the different genres and ages. Data analysis shows that the video format is chosen mainly to demonstrate the users’ specific interests...

This paper provides an overview of a recent 18-month project which set out for the first time to introduce training on tobacco control into the curricula of public health courses in Chinese universities. The aim was to produce graduates with appropriate knowledge and skills to be effective in advocating for policies that could lead to the reduction of tobacco use. Results from this initial project involving seven universities have been encouraging and the new curriculum is to be implemented, with some changes, on a wider scale throughout China. Each of the universities also successfully introduced a smoke-free campus policy and the aim is to extend this policy.

The recognition that information and communication technologies should play an increasingly important role in medical education is a key to educating physicians in the 21st century. Computer use in medical education includes, Internet hypermedia/multimedia technologies, medical informatics, distance learning and telemedicine. Adaptation to the use of these technologies should ideally start from the elementary school level. Medical schools must introduce medical informatics courses very early in the medical curriculum. Teachers will need regular CME courses to prepare and update themselves with the changing circumstances. Our infrastructure must be prepared for the new developments with computer labs, basic skill labs, close circuit television facilities, virtual class rooms, smart class rooms, simulated teaching facilities, and distance teaching by tele-techniques. Our existing manpower including, doctors, nurses, technicians, librarians, and administration personal require hands-on training, while new recruitment will have to emphasize compulsory knowledge of and familiarity with information technology. This paper highlights these subjects in detail as a means to prepare us to meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Objective This study examined parenting variables (communication, monitoring) as moderators of a family-based intervention for reducing sedentary behavior (SB) in African American adolescents. As a secondary aim, a similar model was tested using adolescent weight status as the outcome. Methods African American adolescents (n = 73; 12.45 ± 1.45 years; 60% girls; 63% overweight/obese) and caregivers were randomized to a 6-week interactive, parent-based intervention or general health condition. Parent–adolescent communication and monitoring of health behaviors were self-reported by parents. Adolescent SB was self-reported by youth. Results There was a significant intervention by communication interaction, such that intervention families with more positive communication showed lower adolescent SB than those with less positive communication or those in the comparison condition. No effects were found for monitoring on SB or for the model with weight status as the outcome. Conclusions Parent–adolescent communication may be an effective component to integrate into health promotion programs for African American adolescents.

The discourse of universal education brought with it hopes of classes not previously served by a public policy that would guarantee the right to education. Thus discussions about inclusive education were strengthened so that disesteem teacher training to work in this area. Assuming that when the teacher in space reflects their conceptions and their practices, becoming aware of them and having a theoretical basis, this will bring changes in teaching practice of critical and reflective nature insist that the social networks of research may emerge as an area to promote the interactions required for such changes. Thus, this research was conducted in a social network as a strategy for initial and continuing training of teachers. The system in question is called Goiana Interdisciplinary Network of Special Education / Inclusive (RPEI) composed by student teachers, teacher trainers and teachers who seek to regulate actions reflected through social interactions that are promoted by RPEI. Indeed, this research has as its object of study verbal communication produced in RPEI. We aim to make an analysis of verbal communication RPEI produced in the environment, in other words, how this dynamic of social interactions between the University and the Coordination of Special Education Ministry of Education of Goiás (COEE-GO) can contribute to teacher training aiming at the inclusion school. We present the results by analyzing two types of categories...

This study investigated the effectiveness of an Ontario-developed online Special Education teacher training course as a model for in-service teacher professional development in China. The study employed a mixed method approach encompassing both a quantitative survey and a qualitative research component to gather perceptions of Chinese and Canadian teachers, educational administrators, and teacher-educators who have intensive experience with online education, Special Education, and teacher preparation programs both in China and Canada. The study revealed insufficient understanding of Special Education among the general Chinese population, underdevelopment of Special Education teacher preparation in China, and potential benefits of using a Canadian online teacher training course as a model for Special Education in China. Based on the literature review and the results of this study, it is concluded that online Canadian Special Education teacher in-service courses can set an example for Chinese Special Education teacher training. A caveat is that such courses would require localized modifications, support of educational authorities, and pilot testing.

U.S. Army Special Forces (SF) and the Naval Special Warfare (NSW) forces conduct numerous training missions within South America in support of SOCSOUTH's strategy. Additionally, the two services routinely conduct similar missions with similar Host Nation (HN) forces. Historically, Army SF and NSW have lacked a strong operational 'handshake' when transitions occur between these HN units. Often, the results are redundant training with HN forces, lack of overall training continuity, a high expenditure for the results obtained, and an inability to more rapidly progress forward with HN training. The lack of inter-service communication between the Army SF and the NSW forces becomes more significant when the number of SOF available in the AOR is reduced. By addressing these key issues through more efficient inter-service communication, the present forces can more adequately respond to the current and future threats in the AOR. This thesis presents ideas that may help curtail excessive spending while increasing the ability of the two Special Forces service components, SF and NSW, to collectively work together with a greater understanding of each others capabilities and mission directives. This thesis investigates several factors that affect the efficiency of U.S. forces conducting training with HN countries throughout South America and focuses specifically on the troubled areas of Colombia and the Tri-border region of Paraguay...

Approved for public release, distribution is unlimited; Warfare planners and tacticians are seeking ways to leverage information technology to gain advantage on the battlefield. With the advent of Internet technologies, complex systems are becoming more networked, and access to information is more critical than ever. The increasing utilization of special operations forces in ad hoc, dynamic operations poses a need for adaptable communications to support the unit. Effective communication within the unit and critical information exchange with the command center affect the overall outcome of the mission. An adaptive, mobile network with UAV relays is well-suited to support the ad hoc nature of special operations. The area of research for this thesis is the role of the tactical network operations communication coordinator in mobile UAV networks. The coordinator's purpose is to oversee the management and status of the network and provide feedback to network participants, thus resulting in an effective and well-functioning environment. The tactical network coordinator is an important and integral part of network operations by establishing what is known as network awareness. This thesis will be a model for sharing network awareness, and it will explore the potential benefits of incorporating network performance as a planning objective rather than a constraint.; First Lieutenant...

AIDS education is mandated in schools throughout the United States to educate students about the disease. Teachers are expected to assume the major role of disseminating this information; therefore it is reasonable to question how knowledgeable teachers are about HIV/AIDS and where their information is coming from. This study explored the knowledge and attitudes of general and special education teachers toward students with HIV/AIDS and investigated whether a relationship between knowledge and attitudes existed. Information was collected using the AIDS Knowledge and Attitude Survey (AKAS). The sample was limited to certified teachers resulting in 318 participants.^ Research questions were analyzed using descriptive statistics, frequencies, t-tests, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), Scheffe post hoc analysis, and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation. Results indicated that general and special education teachers did not have complete knowledge about HIV/AIDS. Participants were knowledgeable regarding modes of transmission which may be the area of greatest concern for teachers, however, deficiencies were present within teachers' knowledge of general statements and facts and pathology. Among the ten demographic variables analyzed...

Equity issues are critical and acute. It is clear that there are critical equity issues related to the uses of information and communication technologies (ICTs) in education. There is a real danger that uses of ICTs can further marginalize groups already excluded or marginalized from existing educational practices and environments. Solid documentation from Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries. There is a richly documented history of what works and what doesn't related to the uses of ICTs to assist in the education of students with a variety of disabilities, both cognitive and physical based on OECD experience. Certain applications of ICTs have been shown to have positive and important effects on the educational development of students exhibiting a great variety of special needs (including blind, deaf, and learning disabled students). While ample evidence exists that ICT use can have a positive impact on student motivation, such gains in motivation tend to correlate most closely with students who are already the most academically motivated and highest achievers.

The 1990s state litigation that resulted in the tobacco industry's initial document disclosure obligations fully expired in 2010. These obligations have been extended and enhanced until 2021 through a federal lawsuit against the tobacco industry over violations of the Racketeer Influenced Corrupt Organizations Act (RICO). In this special communication, we summarise and explain the new legal framework and enhanced document disclosure obligations of the major US tobacco companies. We describe the events leading up to these new requirements, including the tobacco companies’ failed attempt to close the Minnesota Tobacco Document Depository, the release of 100 000 documents onto the companies’ document websites discovered to have been publicly available at the Minnesota Tobacco Document Depository but not online, and the addition of over 2300 documents to those websites, which are also now publicly available at Minnesota after being secured for years in a separate, non-public storage room at the Minnesota Tobacco Document Depository. We also detail the document indexing enhancements and redesign of the University of California, San Francisco's Legacy Tobacco Documents Library website, made possible by the RICO litigation, and which is anticipated to be released in September 2014.

Doctor-patient communication is a skill essential for the satisfaction of the patients’ needs and expectations. It involves an art that every practicing physician should have. The situations in health care delivery that demands good doctor-patient communication are many. Diabetes care, the management of hypertension, explaining serious disease diagnoses, prognosis, and investigative procedures are some of the common situations where good doctor-patient communication is very essential. Doctor-patient communication assumes a special status in Saudi Arabia where as a result of mixed ethnicity of the manpower in the health service and the expatriate community, there is a vast diversity of languages, health traditions and beliefs. The skill of doctor-patient communication can be developed and improved by the application of the principles of the patient-centered approach, the utilization of patient-oriented evidence that matters, and its inclusion in the undergraduate curriculum in the first few years of medical school. There should be continuous medical education programs for practicing doctors on the skills of doctor-patient communication through seminars and workshops. This would be a further step towards the improvement of the consumer's well-being.

In this article we offer a detailed assessment of current approaches to the origins of language, with a special focus on their historical and theoretical underpinnings. It is a widely accepted view within evolutionary linguistics that an account of the emergence of human language necessarily involves paying special attention to its communicative function and its relation to other animal communication systems. Ever since Darwin, some variant of this view has constituted the mainstream version in evolutionary linguistics; however, it is our contention in this article that this approach is seriously flawed, and that “animal communication” does not constitute a natural kind on which a sound theoretical model can be built. As a consequence, we argue that this communicative perspective is better abandoned in favor of a structural/formal approach based on the notion of homology, and that some interesting and unexpected similarities may be found by applying this venerable comparative method founded in the 19th century by Richard Owen.

The study examined the communication channels that professors, graduate students, and undergraduates use to learn and tell others about special academic events on college campuses, as well as individuals' motivations for attending academic events and mentioning them to others. Broad similarities emerged among the groups. Email announcement was the most common way to learn about academic events, and face-to-face communication was the most common means of telling others. Beyond the similarities, significant differences emerged. Overall, students showed more diversity in channels of communication for learning and sharing information about academic events, as well as in motivations for attending events and mentioning them to others. The study offers recommendations for marketing special academic events to professors and students.
