For a little background info on labeling, the article Labeling and Disadvantages of Labeling posted on education.com begins with this sentence. “Students identified as having problems in school either will meet eligibility criteria for special education services or will be unofficially with such negative adjectives as “lazy,” “unmotivated,” “slow learner,” or “behavior problem.” (Henley, Ramsey , & Algozzine, 2010)pictured: Stephan Hopkins a delegate from Rhode island who signed the declaration of independence. Hopkins had Cerebral Palsy at the time

Slide4

Labeling ( Episode IV A New Hope For Labeling)

Advantage of labeling

Disadvantage

of labeling

“Federal

and local funding of special education programs are based on categories of disabilities” (Henley, Ramsey , & Algozzine, 2010)

“Labels shape teacher expectations. Imagine what your reaction would be if the principal informed you that the new student in your class is mildly mentally retarded. Studies on teacher expectations have demonstrated that what teachers believe about student capability is directly related to student achievement.”

(Henley, Ramsey , & Algozzine, 2010)

Slide5

Labeling (Episode v labeling strikes back)

Positive effect

Negative

effect

IEP (Individualized Education Plan)

“ One of the positive effects of labeling students “learning disabled” is it qualifies them to have an Individual Education Plan (IEP). This plan allows them to receive instruction at their current level of functioning, provides them with accommodations and specifically designed instruction, and creates goals and objectives for them”

(Kivi, 2012)

Note: even though the above texts references learning disabled, it is still relevant to people who are physically disabled.

Low Self-Esteem

“The learning disabled label can result in the students and educators reducing their expectations and goals for what can be achieved in the classroom.”

(Kivi, 2012)

Slide6

Labeling (episode vi return of the labeling)

Advantage

of Labeling

Disadvantage of Labeling

“Labeling enables

professionals to communicate with one another because each categorical label conveys a general idea about learning characteristics” (Henley, Ramsey , & Algozzine, 2010)

“All children have troubling behaviors.

Labels can exaggerate a student’s actions in the eyes of a teacher. A teacher may overreact to behavior of a labeled child that would be tolerated in another.” (Henley, Ramsey , & Algozzine, 2010)

Slide7

Labeling (finale)

Positive effect

Negative effect

Extra Learning Support

“Labeling also

qualifies students to receive services that they may not have otherwise been able to receive, such as instruction in a learning support room. In this setting the instruction they receive is at a pace much more conducive to their learning.”

(Kivi, 2012)

Lower Expectation

“ Labeling can also lead to others having lower expectations for the student. Adults, including teachers and parents, may think the students cannot do what is required and lower their expectations. If the teachers and parents do not believe in the student’s ability, then the student will not either.” (Kivi, 2012)

Slide8

Questions ?

Is labeling a child with a physical disability rather than a mental disability more harmful or more helpful?

Should certain physical disabilities or certain levels of a disability be labeled at all?
