They would need to determine if there’s a negative effect or a positive effect on children that repeated a grade. Scientist would have to analyze these results and come to a conclusion to see if there’s a social or an emotional impact on these children’s behavior. The strength of this method as it applies to the research question is that parents will get to see if there’s any negative impact on social or emotional development when it comes to retaining their child. The weakness of this method as it applies to the research question is that there’s no definite answer and each child is unique and may cope differently to certain situations. Also, some children will not show any social or emotional development right away but
However, (ADHD) supposed to be basically related to neuropsychological (Tannock and Brown, 2000). One of the momentous theories in ADHD has indicated that this disorder is developmental disorder which often includes the inability to perform functions with the main deficit in the control of behaviour. Consequently, these behavioural disabilities might lead to a shortfall in other aspects of the executive functions, for instance working memory, arrangement and verbal fluency (Panzer and Viljoen, 2005). A group of researchers observed that the children who suffer from ADHD and have proof of the shortage of these children in the executive functions (Chhabildas, Pennington and Willcutt, 2001; Berlin et al., 2004). Cognitive deteriorations in the executive performance is evident in children clearly with troubles in social and emotional functions (Debonis,Ylvisaker and Kundert, 2000).
The study helped to determine that IPV does have a negative impact on the children’s’ working memory so it is important that programs are designed to help children overcome the negative effects that IPV has on the children’s short-term memory, working memory performance and deliberate memory strategies. While the study did help to support previous studies it also has its flaws. The main problems the study has was that the research was mainly correlational and not all possibilities were considered, and only information taken from the mother was taken into account.

Some parents may argue that their children have ADHD because they have a short attention span. Other parents may argue that their children have ADHD because they fidget or squirm in their seat and blurt out answers before questions are completed. Other behaviors such as talking excessively, not listening when spoken to directly, and running about or climbing excessively at inappropriate times are also used to declare ADHD. These six behaviors are actual items on the ADHD Checklist produced by the... ... middle of paper ... ..., Stephen W, Ph.D., Marianne Daniels Garber, Ph.D. and Robyn Freedman Spizman. Beyond Ritalin.
Therefore, it can be hypothesized that one cause of Autism is a dysfunctional mirror-neuron system, given that the presumed functions of these class of neurons – such as empathy, intention-reading, mimicry, pretend play, and language learning- are deficient in autism. Studying the unexpected relationship between mirror neurons and autism is vital because this may have implications for the development of early behavioral interventions aimed at training basic mechanisms supported by the mirror-neuron system, rather than attempting to correct higher levels of complex behaviors. Mirror neurons are a newly discovered, specific class of ner... ... middle of paper ... ...m. This many have implications for the development of early behavioral interventions aimed at triaging basic mechanisms supported by the mirror-neuron system, rather than correcting more complex behaviors.

Have you ever heard of the term ASD? What are your thoughts when you see a child in public who is misbehaving? Well the two of these questions might be linked together. ASD is better known as autism spectrum disorder which is a disorder of the development in the brain according to Autism Speaks Inc. (2015). Due to this developmental issue children can be thought of as being bad or unruly, but in reality they cannot help it.

In this case, Differential Reinforcement of Alternative Behaviors (DRA) will be used to extinct problem behavior and reinforce alternative behavior. In conclusion, Michael’s symptoms are signs of a child suffering from autism in terms of his language, social skills, and behavior. Michael has demonstrated all the symptoms associated with autism as identified by her mother and the pediatrician. Therefore, his condition requires a suitable treatment or intervention plan to address it appropriately.
The consequences children withstood from the use of experimental medications was more negative than it was positive. First things first, there is something that needs to be understood. Autism is a general term for a group of complex disorders of brain development characterized in varying degrees by social interaction, verbal / nonverbal communication, and repetitive behaviors (routines). Whereas, Fragile-X Syndrome is an inherited intellectual disability caused by a change or mutation on the FMRI gene on the X chromosome. A concern amongst many health specialists was what seemed very simple to them; if the conditions the children had are different, then it would make a difference on what medication they should take would it not?
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (ADHD) is a neurobiological condition which exposes developmentally unsuitable levels of inattention, and/or hyperactivity, and/or impulsivity (Leroux & Levitt-Periman, 2000). ADHD is thought to be caused by a dysfunction in the frontal lobes of the brain. Two percent to six percent of today’s learners are affected by ADHD, while three times as many boys as girls are affected with ADHD (Humphrey, 2009). It is important as educators that we know the signs of the ADHD learner as well as strategies to use to maximize their learning. Early detection of children with ADHD is important due to the prevention of secondary disorders.
It was made clear to the children that one set of questions related to what happened during Jim’s visit and one related to what they were told about his visit. This procedure was done to find out whether stereotyping affects a child’s memory positively, negatively or both. They found that the children who had heard the positive details about Jim gave answers that were prone to fitting the stereotype. The children were more likely to say ‘yes’ to positive statements about Jim. However, the
