During youfieldwork visit, observe a child using an SI approach. Describe theprinciples used according to Ayres theory:

1. Was suspendedequipment used? How was it used?

  • Indeed, suspended equipment was used to investigate the child’s gravitational insecurity

  • In fact, a hammock swing was used in linear movements due to the child’s intolerance

  • Massage and joint compression techniques were also used to address inefficient vestibular processing

2. Describe thechild’s adaptive response

  • The child was aroused and stimulated by the activity since she attained an efficient body position

  • The swing was used for calming body awareness such as poor sitting position while sitting or using toys (May-Benson &amp Schaaf, 2015).

  • Also, the swing was used to increase tone since the child sought sensation to her joints

3. What sensorysystems were evoked during the session?

  • The vestibular and somatosensory systems were stimulated during the session since the child can detect the pull of gravity through head movement

  • The auditory and visual/perception systems were also evoked during the session since the child could make eye contact and respond to direct commands (Mailloux &amp Miller-Kuhaneck, 2014).

4. How did thechild respond?

  • The child demonstrated calming post-sensory integration techniques such as nodding the head

  • Furthermore, the child could engage in functional table-top activities such as arranging items and fixing the pieces of a puzzle

  • The child was also able to focus on the task and improve her attention span since she could remember the play items

5. Was sessionplayful or fun?

  • Indeed, the session was playful and fun since the child manifested hypersensitivity

  • In particular, the child was able to select her preferred activity after evaluating several options

Topic I

Theintegration of information technology, in the field of health, hasbeen enhanced due to the notable possibilities it has shown inpromoting the efficiency, cost containment, quality, and the safetyof the processes of medical care delivery. The applications that haveproved to be worth in cost containment, specifically, in the primaryhealthcare include the clinical decision support systems, diseaseregistries that have been computerized, computerized service orderentry application, electronic medical record tools, electronics toolsfor prescription, and the telehealth (Lyon et al, 2016). Costeffectiveness should also come along with quality services. TheNational Resource for Health IT has played a pivotal role in liningthe healthcare sector with the IT scholars and the experts who are atthe forefront in advocating for IT integration in all areas. Forquality purposes, the body has suggested certain tools, like literacyguides on health IT, electronic health recording system, use ofelectronic health prescriptions, and other consumer healthapplications. It is evident that recording applications do cut notonly on costs but also enhance the quality of health care provision.

AsI argued earlier, when put in use, these applications cannot onlyimprove quality but also reduce the costs incurred in the medicaldepartments. Studies have shown that a lot of dollars are wasted oninefficient procedures. The emphasis on technology implementation inthe health field, just like the same way it is employed in the otherareas, has increased accessibility of relevant information, automatedthe labor provision and other inefficient processes as well asminimized the errors that were initially done by employees.Integration of the automated decision-making applications and toolsto access knowledge has to a large extent reduced the omissionerrors. The HIT systems have been resourceful in decision makingwithin the sector and use of proper diagnostic tests, which areessential features of cost effectiveness and quality services.

Topic II

Aresume is a brief usually, one to two page summary of anindividual’s qualifications. It is an ideal tool that can market anindividual. It is used to impress and get the consideration of theemployer. Its primary objective is to make the person get shortlistedfor the job interview. Therefore, it should have the requisitecredentials in the employment context. It should be structured in away that will sell such individuals to the panel. There are keycomponents that should be included in a resume. First, the resumeshould include the contact information. In as much as it may sound anessential thing, it is important that the name and the contact appearon each page of the resume (Rendazzo, 2016). The phone number, thearea code, mailing address, and a link to the LinkedIn profile. Thecontact information should be professional.

Theresume should also have a summary statement that is eye-catching. Thereview should not only have what the employers might want from theperson but what the individual will accomplish ones given theposition. It should stimulate the reader even to go on reading.Another essential component is the work experience. This categoryshould include the posts that one held, the name of the company andwhere it was located, dates of service, and the responsibilities. Theskills uses should be relevant to the job description.

Keywordsin the resume should also be in line with the job description. Thisaspect is important to evade rejection on the ground of not havingthe appropriate keywords. The education section is also very crucial.This article should come at the end unless if grading is the primaryqualification that the person is having.

Theresume must be supplemented with the cover letter (Rendazzo, 2016).In fact, it is the cover letter that allows a person to target boththe job and the employer in a specific way. This role leaves theresume to market at large the skills, values and the experience. Thecover letter also enables one to express to the employers what hasattracted him to the job and why he is interested in working in thefirm.

Topic III Topic 1

Thefailure of the IT projects in organizations has been attributed tolack of expertise in project management. However, most projects havecome to a standstill due to the project manager’s failure tosufficiently address the issues of various individuals. The problems,in most cases, arise from the direct impact that the projects have onpeople. Consequently, a successful manager should not only payattention to the technical concepts of the project but should alsoaddress the needs of the people. The interaction between the projectmanagers and the people should not only arise when there is demand,but it should be continuous (Dumrak et al., 2015). Theadministrators also need not only to listen to the voices of thepeople but also to ask for their opinion on the developments. Incase the issues are not addressed or are given little prominencecases of resistance, apathy, and low commitment arises. Theseconditions will significantly impact on the processes and thetimelines of the proposed IT projects.

Topic III Topic 2

Conflictsare inevitable in any project. One of the factors that may lead toconflicts in a project is the aspect of poor preparation. Anyventure needs to have a clear picture of what is going to be done inadvance. In cases this is not done, they are likely to findthemselves sailing without a paddle (Dumrak et al., 2015). Themanagers should have a clear picture of how the task will look likewhen accomplished successfully at the start and keep the focus on thestrategies laid. The fact that the project did not have a perfectfocus at the early stages has made me anticipate for conflicts. Conflicts are bound to arise regarding documentation and tracking.Besides resource allocation, time span needed to bring the project tofeet, and the output quality of the project are some of the issuesthat will lead to struggles in the course of the task. It is,therefore, necessary for the stakeholders to go back to the drawingboard if they have to meet the expectations of every party.
