WHAT IS EMOTION? :

WHAT IS EMOTION? According to The Columbia Encyclopedia, Sixth Edition, emotions are just individual and subjective feelings which dictate moods of a person. Thus the term, Emotion is commonly and loosely used. In psychology, we can say that emotion means a response to stimuli that includes some specific physiological changes i.e. Rise in body temperature, increase in pulse rate, greater or less activity of certain glands, change in breathing rate—and tends in itself to motivate the individual toward further activity.

In earlier times the word ‘sentiment’ was used for emotion. Today, it is hardly used, and its relative word, ‘sentimental’, has negative expressions. Two and a half centuries ago, towards the end of the Enlightenment, things were really very different. Then, sentiment meant that what ‘emotion’ means today. In earlier times the philosophers of the Enlightenment were fascinated by the emotions. David Hume, Adam Smith, and Thomas Reid all wrote at length about the sentiments and the passions. These thinkers believed that emotions were vital to individual and social existence. Smith did not just found the ‘dismal science’ (economics); he also helped to pioneer the ‘sentimental science’ (the psychology of emotion).:

EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT:

EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT human and citizen, we must need to learn about the emotions If we want to understand the child and want him to be a good present in the child and their healthy development. The overall well-being of any child is dependent upon many factors. We easily recognize that children have fundamental needs: for food, shelter, clothing, safety and an environment that provides nurturing and opportunities to learn and grow. For harmonious development of a child it is very necessary that with the physical development emotional development should take place in the process of development. Many people think that emotional development is the ability to go through a wide range of emotions such as anger, pity and joy however there are more objectives to this kind of development. The overall development of emotions has also to do with controlling these emotions and putting them to good use for a favorable outcome. Emotional development is very universal all over the world for children because everyone needs to be able to interact with others and be able to tell the difference between good and bad. A well developed emotional stable child will be able to deal with the regular trauma of life better than a child that is not in touch with their emotions.

Emotional development is one way that children can ensure they grow up at the same level as other children and not get left behind when it comes to being emotionally stable and adequate. The range of emotions is very broad and cannot be determined by just words like happy, sad or angry. Emotions in children also stand for what they are thinking at the time or what they might want or need. For children that are having difficulty using their words then emotions are more likely to be their key communication to you through their actions and their behavior. Even if the child is unaware of what is happening to them they still manage to communicate the problem through emotions. Often at home the child is completely protected from the outside world and when they first meet other children in nursery school then they have problems regarding socialization and adjustment. We should keep in our minds that emotional development in our children can happen all the time during in social situations like studying in the schools, playing with other children and behaving with adults.:

MEANING OF EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN:

MEANING OF EXCEPTIONAL CHILDREN The term ‘exceptional’ according to the dictionary is ‘A thing or person which is far beyond what is usual in magnitude or degree’, ‘surpassing what is common or usual or expected ’.Thus by these meanings of the term ‘exception’ we can say that exceptional children are those children which deviate widely from a norm of physical or mental ability; especially the children below normal in intelligence. Crow and Crow quotes about exceptionality, “The term exceptional is applied to traits or to a person possessing the traits, because of it the individual receives special attention from his fellows.” According to Heward, “The term exceptional children includes children who experience difficulties in learning of behavioral, emotional and social problems, children with physical disabilities or sensory impairments and children who are intellectually gifted or have some special talent so that special education is necessary to help them to fulfill their potential.” Thus we can say that exceptionals are the separate category of the people who have some unique traits and characteristics genetically determined by the environmental factors which make them fundamentally different from the normals. These people are supposed to learn, perceive and adjust in the ways which are unique to them.

Types of Exceptional Children:

Types of Exceptional Children We can categorize exceptional children in the following categories: Gifted Children Backward Children Mentally retarded Children Slow learners Children with physical disabilities Deprived Children Minority Children

GIFTED CHILDREN:

GIFTED CHILDREN Gifted and talented children’s education Act of USA (1978) states, “The term gifted and talented children means children and youth who are identified at the pre-school, elementary and secondary level as possessing demonstrated or potential abilities that give evidences of higher performance capabilities in areas such as intellectual, creative, academic or leadership or in performing or visual arts and who by reason thereof require services or activities not ordinarily provided by the school.” Former Commissioner of Education Sidney P.Marland, in his August 1971 report to U.S. Congress, stated,” Gifted and talented children are those identified by professionally qualified persons who by virtue of outstanding abilities are capable of high performance. These are children who require differentiated educational programs and/or services beyond those normally provided by the regular school program in order to realize their contribution to self and society“ According to Terman “Gifted children are very much higher in physical development, academic performance, intelligence and personality than normal children.” Kolesnik also quotes, “The every child who is very advance from other children of his age group in any quality and who give something important to the society is called a gifted child.”

PowerPoint Presentation:

Thus, gifted children are identified by their extraordinary, uncommon capacity and atypical development. We can identify giftedness as the aggregate of an individual’s cognitive, affective, physical and intuitive functioning. More than an “able learner”, the gifted child is a rich amalgam of mind, body, spirit and soul in dynamic evolution. The potential of gifted children is enhanced or inhibited by the interface between the inborn ability - the genetic pattern of the individual - and their interaction in the environment.
