Survey your local community for agencies that provide services to students with behavioral disorders. These agencies may deal with students who act out or are withdrawn, and may focus on drug abuse or suicide prevention. Local school districts or mental health organizations may be able to provide the names of some appropriate agencies. Contact two agencies, and find out what types of services they offer. How do these programs differ from school programs? Are services offered to parents and family members? In your view, how useful are these programs?

Watch a film about individuals who have unusual or disordered behavior. If you can’t think of any recent examples, do a Google search to locate older films such as To Sir with Love, Rain Man, or Blackboard Jungle. Describe the behaviors portrayed in terms that would be meaningful in planning for the individual’s educational needs. Explain how a general education teacher could accommodate a school-aged individual with similar needs in his or her classroom. What type(s) of special support or services might the student need? What might the teacher need? Discuss any questions you have about the feasibility and appropriateness of the placement.

C. Divide 7.5 by 0.454
D. Multiply 7.5 by 0.454
19. By Internet search, you discover that 1 in. (1″) is the same as 2.54 cm. How would you convert a man’s waist girth (circumference) from 40″ to centimetres?
A. Multiply 40 by 2.54
B. Divide 40 by 2.54
C. Divide 2.54 by 40

26. What is meant by a “vector” quantity?
A. One that can be measured using a scale.
B. One that is defined by a magnitude.
C. One that needs both a magnitude and a direction to be defined.
D. One that is known exactly without error.
27. The “Systeme Internationale” (SI) units have a set of standard prefixes. Which of the following list four of them correctly?

A. 100.0 mL
B. 0.1 mL
C. 1.0 mL
D. 10.0 mL
1. What can be correctly said of data that are “normally distributed”?
A. The upper and lower values of the distribution describe the healthy range of physiological values.
B. The standard deviation characterises the dispersion of data, and the variance characterises the central tendency of the data.
C. The mean and range are statistics that are strictly only applicable to normally distributed data.
D. Sixty eight percent of all data values will be within 1 SD from the mean.
3. What is the standard deviation used for?
A. As a measure of central tendency
B. As a measure of dispersion
C. As a measure of spread of data that are normally distributed
D. As a measure of the error of the mean value
4. What information does the “standard deviation” of a mean value tell us?
A. It gives us the healthy range of values for the measured physiological quantity.
B. It is the range within which 68% of measured values are found.
C. It tells us that the measured values are normally distributed.
D. It tells us the number of values that were used to calculate the mean.
. 6. Which of the following statements applies to the statistic known as the “standard deviation”?
A. It is a measure of central tendency.
B. It is only applicable to qualitative measurements.
C. Standard deviation is also known as the “variance”.
D. 95% of all data lie within 2 SD of the mean.
7. What is the “average” wage—technically referred to as the arithmetic mean?
8. What is the “median” wage of these ten?
9. What is the “mode” value of these ten wages?
1.You are asked by the physical therapist to prepare a patient for the application of peripheral joint mobilization techniques to the patient’s left knee. Using a partner, perform this activity by demonstrating appropriate patient positioning, draping, and limb exposure. List adjunctive techniques that might be appropriate for patient relaxation, pain relief, compliance, and soft-tissue extensibility. Outline and describe closedpacked and loose-packed positions in reference to this case. Before the application of mobilization, the physical therapist instructed you to perform passive joint ROM to this patient’s knee. Define and describe the components of physiologic movement and contrast these with accessory joint movements. Give examples of each. Describe the convex-concave rule. During the application of passive ROM, you note a yielding compression during knee flexion. Define and describe this end-feel….
1.You are treating a patient with a diagnosis of postoperative ACL reconstruction using the central one-third bone-patellar tendon-bone autograft. In addition, the patient also had a repair of the medical meniscus. It is 1 week after surgery. Develop a continuum of progressive rehabilitation (critical-pathway, -criterion-based rehabilitation program) that follows the maximum-, moderate-, and minimumprotection phase concept of recovery. Based on your knowledge of soft-tissue injury and repair, be certain your program of rehabilitation is consistent with the overlapping phases of injury repair. For each phase of healing, identify and recommend appropriate agents for pain and swelling management. For each phase, list exercises, ROM, muscle contraction types, weight bearing status, open and closed kineticchain exercises, cardiovascular fitness, general physical conditioning, balance-coordination-proprioception drills, and return to functional activities. What effect….
1.Based on your knowledge and understanding of the mechanisms of the lumbar spine and the healing mechanisms of soft tissue and bone, develop a comprehensive rehabilitation program (critical pathway, criterion-based rehab program) for a patient with an extruded disk at L4-L5. Which activities would you recommend during the acute phase of recovery? Which positions would you encourage and discourage? Identify and list four general objectives for the care of a patient with an HNP. During each phase of recovery, recommend specific restrictions, agents to aid in pain and swelling management, alterations in body mechanics, flexibility exercises, aerobic fitness, strength training, and balance and proprioception drills. Assuming this patient is a manual laborer who is required to lift boxes from the floor and place them on a truck, what….
