The aspects of individuality of human personality make it difficult to apply similar diagnostic techniques to different children. Some of the symptoms of Autism are resistance to change, lack of social interaction, lack of eye contact, inappropriate association of things and objects, lack of physical reaction to different stimuli and non-responsiveness to verbal
process with a series of stages that progressively proceeds in a more or less similar manner among different individuals. Right from conception to death, humans are in the process of developing. Different studies that have been conducted on human development show clear-cut similarities and differences among individuals of different ages, gender, ethnical backgrounds, organizations and many other aspects of concern.

Abstract Children with autism have multiple characteristic impairments in their social interaction skills. This results from the lack of “Theory of Mind” in autistic individuals. Autistic children have difficulty interpreting what another person may be thinking or feeling.

Despite the growing number of families whom have adopted children and provided them with a loving and healthy home, the conflict in the family when compared to families with non-adopted children are much greater and suffer much more in there their adolescent years. Yet, adopted adolescents increase risk for many of above problems. In past research these areas was marked by inconsistency y.

Also, the research stated that as the child learns his brain grow. However, it is important to know that the environment a child lives in plays a significant role in his cognitive
essay I am going to summarize Fran Horowitz’ article “Child Development and the PITS.” I will be using the summary to explain Horowitz’ notion of integrative theory. I will also be using the theory to guide how I practice research and how this theory benefits the research that I do. Horowitz article “Child Development and the PITS: Simple Questions, Complex Answers, and Developmental Theory” speaks about the expressed and unexpressed needs of parents, caregivers, and teachers to come across data and/or
their personality traits from their parents or if they are developed through their environment. Neither position has been proven because it is hard to find solid, irrefutable, scientific evidence to support either one. Nature vs. Nurture can deal with many aspects of a person’s personality, such as intelligence and how a person is able to be as smart as they are. Intelligence is something that can be inherited, just as people inherit physical characteristics. However, some feel that children are
