Introduction A study on the child’s mental health involves the mental functioning and the way a child behaves and responds to some instances of life. The study is done by exploring the physiological process and the neurology of a child. The key areas of study include; concentration, mind functioning, emotions, acuity, character and cognition. There are two processes in a child’s development that needs the attention of the parents; physical and the mental development. This is the time that the parent can be able to determine a child’s with mental or physical challenge.
These effects may include academic problems, social and emotional issues and may even lead into mental illness. Children with speech and language delays need professional intervention as young as possible.

Speech is the actual act of communicating through the use of words and sounds (American Family Physician, 1999 pg. 3121).
Cancer is a word which evokes many different images and emotions. Nothing in this world can prepare a person for the utter devastation of finding out someone has been diagnosed with cancer, especially when this person is a child. Over the past twenty five years the amount of research and the survival rate for children suffering with cancer have increased dramatically. Despite these successes, the funding for new research necessary to keep these children alive and healthy is miniscule and too dependent on short term grants. Of the billions of dollars spent each year on cancer treatments and research less than a third is contributed to researching pediatric cancer.
Early Childhood: A look in the three aspects of its development. When you’re a parent, it’s common to worry if your child is developing accordingly, but more exclusively if your child seems to be delayed from other children in their age group. Every stage of development happens differently for every child, but learning to detect these skills or behaviors that are associated with each stage could be beneficial to you and your child in the long run. The three common domains of development are physical, cognitive, and psychosocial. Throughout this paper I will try to help get a different outlook and a possible understanding of the development stage of early childhood (ages 2-6).
As the fastest growing developmental disorder in the United States, Autism affects 1 in every 68 children, and 1 in every 42 boys. On average, it costs families about $60,000 a year between medical bills and therapy. The hardest fact to accept is that there is no cure for this disorder.

Specifically, what are some of the long-term effects of a dual diagnosis of ADHD/LD on a child’s future? The answer to this question might help teachers to better deal with each student’s individual learning ability and hopefully, guide them in finding the best teaching strategies for each individual special needs student. MAJOR DEVELOPMENTAL CHARACTERISTICS Children with the diagnosis of ADHD usually possess varying degrees of hyperactivity, lack of focus or attention, and impulsivity. Some of the developmental issues that young children with ADHD deal with are - behavior control, learning issues, and socialization issues. As the child with ADHD moves into adolescence, they often deal with difficulties with peer interaction, anger management, and identity issues.
The questions are phrased in an open-ended form to promote more conversation with the client and allows the practitioner to gain more information about the client. The questions in the interview are directed to the parent due to the young age of the child and the child’s diagnosis of autism.
