Abstract : Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) refers to a group of developmental disorders. Although the global prevalence of ASD is reported to be between 3-6 children per 1000, there is difficulty in comparing the prevalence of ASD across countries because of the variation in methodology, age group of population and the sample size studied. The prevalence of ASD shows an increasing trend and factors attributing to the rise in prevalence include the increase in awareness on the signs and symptoms of ASD, the increase in access to services, the changes in the definition of autism over time and the broadening of the diagnostic criteria. Among the administrative factors also linked to the increase in prevalence were changed in reporting practices and availability of records. Before1990’s diagnosis of ASD was more often after the entrance to the school. Currently, there are diagnostic tools available and the diagnosis can be made among toddlers. However, for those on the milder end of the spectrum with average or aboveaverage language and cognitive abilities, the diagnosis is still made after school entry. Early detection, diagnosis, and intervention are important in promoting better long-term outcomes and as such screening programs need to be in place. Sustainability of the program requires training of primary care providers, the use of specially designed tools for screening and protocols for referral, and a multidisciplinary diagnostic team. This paper shares the Malaysian experience in implementing a screening program since 2011 and the outcomes of the screening program for ASD in primary care.

Keywords : HRQOL, Autism & Outcome Measure

Abstract : Autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder affecting communication, socialization, and behaviour. There are many interventions for children with autism, such as behaviour management, communication intervention, diet modification, and sensory integration. While some clinical interventions are empirically based, many are not evidence-based. It is difficult to compare and evaluate treatment efficacy as different treatments have varying outcome measures. The objective of this paper is to propose the use of Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQOL) as an outcome measure for autism intervention. The paper outlines the relationship between autism and HRQOL, autism intervention and outcome measures, and why they use of HRQOL is an ideal outcome measure for any autism intervention.

Towards a Consensual Framework of Emotional Labor

Volume : vol 6, 2018

Publication Date : 2019-01-08

SAPJ Code : 2060, 4120, 4130

Keywords : emotional labor,emotion regulation,surface acting,deep acting

Abstract :

 

Emotional labor is an important phenomenon of study in the field of industrial and organizational psychology as it is known to affect a myriad of organizationally-relevant outcomes such as job satisfaction and organizational commitment. However, researchers examining the process of emotional labor have yet to agree upon a single, common framework and nomenclature. As such, the field is speckled with piecemeal findings and inconsistent usage of terminologies which only serve to undermine our understanding of the phenomenon at hand. This paper attempts to reconcile discrepant usage of terminologies, considers and integrates current knowledge of emotional labor, and proposes a general framework of the process of emotional labor.

Dalam kajian ini penyelidik ingin melihat permasalahan yang paling utama,  pencapaian akademik pelajar dalam PMR serta mengenal pasti perbezaan permasalahan yang dihadapi berdasarkan demografi pelajar. Kajian dilakukan ke atas 186 orang responden menggunakan soal selidik yang diterjemah daripada MPCL yang dibahagikan kepada dua bahagian.

Statistik deskriptif seperti frekuensi, peratusan, min dan sisihan piawai serta statistik inferensi seperti ujian-t telah digunakan dalam kajian ini. Nilai kebolehpercayaan Alpha Cronbach adalah α = .895. Hasil kajian menunjukkan tahap permasalahan yang dihadapi oleh pelajar-pelajar di sekolah menengah daerah Mersing berada pada tahap sederhana (min = 3.20). Permasalahan akademik dan kerjaya merupakan permasalahan yang paling utama (min = 3.82) serta tidak terdapat perbezaan permasalahan pelajar mengikut jantina, bangsa dan lokasi sekolah tetapi terdapat perbezaan permasalahan agama dan moral mengikut bangsa (k = .01 < α = .05) dan terdapat perbezaan permasalahan persekolahan yang dihadapi oleh pelajar-pelajar yang dikaji mengikut jantina (k = .004 < α = .05) dan lokasi sekolah (k = .002 < α = .05). Ini bermakna pelajar-pelajar tingkatan empat di sekolah menengah daerah Mersing perlu dibantu bagi mengurangkan permasalahan akademik dan kerjaya, serta tumpuan boleh diberi bagi permasalahan agama dan moral mengikut bangsa dan persekolahan mengikut lokasi sekolah.

Keywords : perbaikan, tingkah laku, peminggiran, pencapaian sederhana, Kognitif-Tngkah Laku, motivasi, keibubapaan

Abstract : Kajian ini berasaskan masalah peminggiran yang dilakukan oleh pentadbir sekolah rendah terhadap murid-murid yang mempunyai pencapaian sederhana dan rendah. Sekolah yang dijadikan sampel dalam kajian ini menjalankan sistem pengaliran dengan ketat dan pada masa yang sama memberi perhatian khas kepada murid-murid yang dijangka mendapat pencapaian cemerlang dalam peperiksaan Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah. Pendekatan Terapi Kognitif-Tingkah laku (Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy) Model Kajian Tindakan Kaunseling Elliot (1991) telah digunakan dalam kajian ini. Seramai 50 orang murid terpinggir telah diberikan perhatian melalui bimbingan kerja rumah, kaunseling individu, kaunseling kelompok, terapi muzik dan lukisan, serta mengikuti kem motivasi pada hujung minggu. Pada masa yang sama, ibu bapa murid turut diberikan khidmat kaunseling secara kelompok dan individu serta bimbingan keibubapaan. Dalam tempoh tiga bulan program ini dijalankan, didapati terdapat peningkatan yang ketara bagi konsep kendiri kanak-kanak, tingkah laku masteri dalam bilik darjah dan pencapaian murid yang lebih memberansangkan dalam tiga subjek yang diukur, iaitu, bacaan, matematik dan Bahasa Melayu. Dapatan kajian menunjukkan bahawa murid yang mempunyai pencapaian sederhana dalam pelajaran di sekolah boleh mengalami penambahbaikan tingkah laku dan peningkatan pencapaian akademik jika diberi perhatian sewajarnya. Ini juga boleh menolak tanggapan bahawa golongan murid yang sederhana pencapaian mereka dalam akademik merupakan kumpulan kanak-kanak yang boleh mencacatkan reputasi keputusan peperiksaan Ujian Penilaian Sekolah Rendah.
