Title: “The impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic on children with special educational needs, and their parents”

Host: Professor Dieter Wolke

Abstract:

Children and adolescents with special educational needs and their parents are likely to have been disproportionally affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. There has been little focus on how the mental health of these vulnerable families developed during the pandemic. We asked parents/carers to complete online questionnaires about their own and their child’s mental health at one or more time points between 23rd March 2020 (at the onset of the first lockdown) and 10th October 2020 (when schools fully reopened for face-to-face teaching). During the talk we will discuss stability and change in mental health using both quantitative and qualitative data. We will also discuss how these findings differed for those with autism compared to those with other special educational needs. Findings will be discussed with reference to implications for support as we emerge from the pandemic.

Guest Speaker: "Training can improve decision making" Professor Carey Morewedge, Boston University
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Speaker: Professor Carey Morewedge

Carey K. Morewedge is a Professor of Marketing and Everett W. Lord Distinguished Faculty Scholar in the Questrom School of Business at Boston University. Broadly, Professor Morewedge's research examines psychological biases in judgment and decision making. He identifies their causes, consequences, and develops interventions to mitigate them. Through this lens, it explores two substantive areas. The first is on psychological determinants of value in its many forms, including utility, money, choices, and consummatory behavior. A more recent second focus is on psychological barriers to the adoption of new technologies, such as digital goods and artificial intelligence.

Guest Speaker: Environmental, Social, and Behavioral Cascades: Real-Time Learning Processes, Professor Catherine S. Tamis-LeMonda, NYU Steinhardt
On-line Email c.j.johnstone@warwick.ac.uk for link

Speaker: Professor Catherine Tamis-LeMonda, Professor of Applied Psychology, NYU Steinhardt

I conduct my research at NYU Steinhardt's Play and Language Lab, where we examine infant and toddler learning and development in social and cultural contexts. I seek to understand how developing skills across a variety of domains reciprocally affect one another concurrently and over time (the theoretical construct of “developmental cascades”).
