After these conclusions were made, every two years until the child reached the age of eight, the children underwent a series of IQ and comprehension tests. This method, however, is not completely accurate. Five out of... ... middle of paper ... ...ings, dyslexics are very bright. Many very intelligent and successful people suffered from dyslexia to some degree such as Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison (Famous People with the Gift of Dyslexia). Dyslexics just take a different approach to learning than others.
Many people with Tourette syndrome undergo further neurobehavioral tribulations including lack of concentration; impulsivity and hyperactivity. In other words they can have attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). They can also obtain similar problems with reading, writing, and any kind of arithmetic. Obsessive-compulsive symptoms such as invasive thoughts and recurring behaviors may occur within themselves. Although many people have to live with Tourette syndrome their whole lives, no medication is required for tic suppression because no kind of impairment has been caused by their tics.
Still others are totally independent and function fairly well. The last, or "high-functioning," group is often not recognized; however, they do exist, and people need to recognize and understand the difficulties they face: their unique ways of thinking, doing things, and experiencing the world. These levels of intensity in relation to the disability are not only found in autism. In her essay Georgina Kleege talks about the varying degrees of blindness, and how people assume that there is only one type of blindness, total darkness. Their is no cure to autism but it can be managed through many different techniques.
Still today, one of the biggest challenges is being able to talk to that person about their addiction. Even though I personally have not had the opportunity to speak to a loved one or acquaintance about an addiction. Research shows when confronting a person with a problem; it takes preparation, patience, and being totally honest with that individual. Talking to someone with a dependency is something that most people avoid because people like myself would not want others mending in our lives; we, even, tend to believe that it is not our problem how much our f... ... middle of paper ... ...was able to. Thus, what did start out as a simple little habit became an addiction to nicotine.
Later research has shown, however, that children with dyslexia are not unusually prone to reversing letters or words and that the deficit responsible for the disorder is related to the language system. In particular, dyslexia reflects a deficiency in the processing of the distinctive linguistic units, called phonemes that make up all spoken and written words. Current linguistic models of reading and dyslexia now provide an explanation of why some very intelligent people have trouble learning to read and performing other language-related tasks. Over the past twenty years, a consistent model of dyslexia has emerged that is based on phonological processing. The phonological model is consistent both with the clinical symptoms of dyslexia and with what neuroscientists know about brain organization and function.
PP is treatable, however there are no guidelines for treatment at this time. Most patients have been treated using a combination of pharmaceuticals and psychotherapy. Even though treatment options are still being evaluated, the sooner any treatment starts the better off mother and child are.
Out of Order Disorder It has been known since the beginning of time that not all people have the same brain function, social graces or self control. Children have daydreamed, been distracted, wiggled and have been routinely disruptive in classrooms. The condition dubbed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a new name for old behaviors. It has only been the last 40 or so years that these behaviors have become known as a disorder. They were previously accepted, on the most part, as common childhood behavior that would be outgrown.
In addition to this, although there is not a said cure for psychopathic behavior, children can be treated and taken care of in a way that gives th... ... middle of paper ... ...to other children because their brains are modeled in a different way than a normal child. They need extra attention and need to be treated and cared for differently. If caught, they can change and get the attention they need. “Psychopaths show a stunning lack of concern for the effects their actions have on others, no matter how devastating these might be” (Hare). This is what makes them extremely dangerous.
Having dyslexia does not mean that one is not smart, it just means that their brain functions in a different way. Dyslexia happens in people of all ethnicities and socio-economic status, however it is common to see more than one person of a family to have dyslexia. Dyslexia does not affect everyone in the same way or with the same magnitude; the difference depends on how severe the disability is. A person with dyslexia can present trouble with reading and spelling while another may have trouble with writing (NCLD Editorial team, 2014). A person with dyslexia may have trouble expressing them selves, organizing their ideas or understanding what is being said to them.
Low-tech memory aids include notebooks, wall calendars, pill minders, and photographs of people and places. No medications are currently available for treating most types of amnesia. (Mandal, 2012)Amnesia caused by Wernicke-Korsakoff syndrome involves a lack of thiamin. Treatment includes replacing this vitamin and providing proper nutrition. Although treatment, which also needs to include alcohol abstinence, can help prevent further damage, most people won 't recover all of their lost memory.
