*  .. Spatial learning sculpts the dendritic arbor of adult-born hippocampal neurons .. Post navigatio
Spatial learning sculpts the dendritic arbor of adult-born hippocampal neurons Dendrites are the extensions of neurons that receive incoming information. While a body of work has emerged suggesting adult-born neurons are involved in memory and behavior, no one has yet investigated whether experience is capable of altering the dendritic development of these new neurons. Since the authors had previously shown that water maze learning enhances the survival of 1-week-old cells, they first examined whether water maze learning would also alter the dendritic structure of this same population of neurons. Since the dendritic morphology of developmentally-born hippocampal neurons can be altered by learning, physiological changes in hormones, and exercise, it is also worth noting that in this study learning did not affect the dendritic complexity of mature granule neurons though spines were not analyzed in mature neurons and it is possible that learning caused retraction and formation of spines in mature neurons with n...

Corn mazes appear in many different designs. Most have a path which goes all around the whole pattern, either to end in the middle or to come back out again, with various false trails diverging from the main path. In the United Kingdom, they are known as ' maize mazes' "corn" in British English is generally taken to refer to wheat, and are especially popular with farms in the east of England. Some of these attractions include hay rides, a petting zoo, play areas for children, and picnic areas. In the U.S., corn mazes typically are cut down circa the first week of November; in the UK typically in September after children return to school. 2 Creation See also References External links.

For Humans, confusion is goal enough. For BrikVersians, confusion is the means to a greater end. A stymied minifig is a very, very dangerous beast. Minifigs, in general, don't enjoy thinking too terribly much. They certainly don't enjoy a lack of killing while they're sat about doing all this thinking. This sort of situation can break a minifig's mind, turning them into an engine of mindless rage. Which usually works well enough for the owners of the Maze, though Offices are usually the more efficient and expedient method of obtaining these beasts.

This weekend I traveled to Boston to participate in Stop #2 of the Dark Horse Series. It took place this Saturday the 4th at MetroRock in Everret, Massachusetts. The qualifier round was 3 hours of redpoint format with hundreds of people waiting to try the amazing problems set by Dave Wetmore and crew. The top 7 women and top 7 men from the redpoint round made it to finals. Finals were four problems onsight style. I find this format demanding and exhausting. It is wise to approach this type of competition with some sort of strategy. Not only do you have to find and climb five of the hardest climbs you can do but crowds complicate things and fatigue is also a factor–you have to save enough juice for finals. Without enough sleep the night before and after battling the crowds in the redpoint round, I was definitely t...

Students work in teams to identify and evaluate: the interest of a stakeholder in GCC, the position held by the stakeholder, the rationale/evidence used to support the position, and the response of the stakeholder to GCC in light of their stated position. Students then have the opportunity to critique the positions and rationale of the various stakeholders and to form and provide rationale for their own positions. This activity provides students with the opportunity to view the topic of global climate change through the lenses of various stakeholders.

Problem-based Learning Implemented at MCC. Problem-based Learning Implemented at MCC. Using the Problem-Based Learning approach, students engage in complex, challenging problems and collaboratively work toward their resolution. PBL is about students connecting disciplinary knowledge to real-world problems; the motivation to solve a problem becomes the motivation to learn. For more than 10 years, ITUE has encouraged the adoption of student-centered and active classroom pedagogies — and in particular —t he use of PBL in the undergraduate classroom. During the workshop, MCC faculty participated in the process of writing PBL problems that are being used in their fall classes. This move away from traditional all-lecture faculty-centered classes to real world, active learning, student-centered classes places MCC among some of the most forward thinking colleges in the nation. Research into student learning is repeatedly showing that today’s students are better prepared for the work place when their education and pre...

The suggested steps are to Present the Problem Statement - withholding critical data and information Students list what is known - answer the question "What do we know?" Students then list what is needed - answer the question "What do we need to find out?" Students then explore posible actions - recommendations, solutions - answer the question "What should we do?" The solution is presented. Three examples of problems were shared. Problem 1 - You are beginning a fluency evaluation with a 3 year old. Prior to working with the child, you interview parents to obtain a history. When you ask them what they expect from the exaluation, they say they want to know whether their daughter's disfluent speech is "normal." They add that if she is "stuttering" they'd like to know whether or not she'll "outgrow it."...

Image-based quiz. Resource Builder has been developed by a team of Veterinary academics and technical specialists who required a 'user-friendly' method of building on-line case-based learning activities for veterinary students. It is a suite of templates that enable educators to build a variety of interactive cases and quizzes. Case Builder This resource allows you to create simple cases consisting of background information about the case and a given task. In addition, the builder can provide links to supportive material such as results of diagnostic tests, images or background reading. Hot Cat This is an interactive diagnostic tool that allows users to assess the animal's clinical presentation via descriptions and images and then select or pretend to 'purchase' diagnostic tests based on their clinical assessment of the case. Each case has a restricted budget that tracks the student's 'purchases' as the results of diagnostic tests are delivered - thereby simulating real case decisions. The order in which diag...

*  .. Why PBL is the Suck .. Like this: .. Related
One trend in medical education is to force students into a learning style called problem-based learning. You and your team are given a fictitious patient with a variety of symptoms and laboratory values with the goal of figuring out what’s going on. You’re never given the answers outright, and have only limited information to work with. The idea behind PBL is that when you are forced to look up information about a particular disease and then present it to your classmates, you’ll better learn the material and gain the important skill of working through a differential diagnosis. At first, PBL sounds like a great idea. It gets you out of the classroom and allows you to think for yourself. If you take a quick look through SDN’s pre-med forums, you’ll see lots of college students creaming their pants at the hopes of joining a PBL school. My guess is that they’re sick of lecture halls and want a more intimate teaching environment. PBL sounds like playing a grand master in chess who will lead you through the g...

← Service: A blessing to giver and receiver. Kids and Music: Opportunity and Inspiration →. Learning Activity: Marshmallow Molecules. Posted on. thegardener. The inspiration for this activity came from Maryanne over at Mama Smiles ; I thought it was a great way for young children to learn about molecules. We built our original molecules a couple of months ago–the kids were delighted to discover marshmallows in our Family Learning Cupboard, together with toothpicks and books about atoms and molecules. Our masterpiece that day was a glucose molecule, which sat proudly on the counter until Dad came home to admire it. Yesterday, I noticed Ladybug dragging a chair bigger than herself into the “blue room”–where I keep many of our homeschooling supplies. I’d forgotten about the marshmallows, stored away in the closet in a drawer marked “Chemistry”–but she obviously hadn’t. The rest of us were sitting at the table having a snack when she came out with a beaker full of little colored marshmallows the marshmallows had ...

PMID: 23192277 Owner: NLM Status: Publisher. In two experiments, we investigated emergent conditional relations in pigeons using a symbolic matching-to-sample task with temporal stimuli as the samples and hues as the comparisons. Both experiments comprised three phases. In Phase I, pigeons learned to choose a red keylight R but not a green keylight G after a 1-s signal. They also learned to choose G but not R after a 4-s signal. In Phase II, correct responding consisted of choosing a blue keylight B after a 4-s signal and a yellow keylight Y after a 16-s signal. Comparisons G and B were both related to the same 4-s sample, whereas comparisons R and Y had no common sample. In Phase III, R and G were presented as samples, and B and Y were presented as the comparisons. The choice of B was correct following G, and the choice of Y was correct...

Affiliated with Department of Pharmacology, University College. M O’Boyle. Affiliated with Department of Pharmacology, University College. M Regan. Affiliated with Department of Pharmacology, University College. Given that apomorphine inhibits passive avoidance retention when given during training or in a defined 10–12h post-training period, we evaluated the ability of nefiracetam to attenuate amnesia induced by dopaminergic agonism. A step-down passive avoidance paradigm was employed and nefiracetam 3 mg/kg and apomorphine 0.5 mg/kg were given alone or in combination during training and at the 10–12h post-training period of consolidation. However, administration of nefiracetam during training completely reversed...

Other Article Types. Article-Level Metrics. Open Access Peer-reviewed Research Article. Article. We then examined, using ZIP, the effect of PKMζ inhibition in dorsal hippocampus DH and basolateral amygdala BLA on retention of 1-d-old information acquired in the radial arm maze, water maze, inhibitory avoidance, and contextual and cued fear conditioning paradigms. Similarly, PKMζ inhibition in the hippocampus did not affect contextual information after fear conditioning. Recently, however, the persistent phosphorylation by the autonomously active protein kinase C PKC isoform, protein kinase Mzeta PKMζ , has been shown to be critical for the maintenance of aversive long-term memories, specifically, place avoidance in the hippocampus and conditioned taste aversion in the neocortex. In the active place avoidance task, ZIP had a persistent effect on long-term memory retention.

Article Klur, S. Impact Factor: 4.16. In humans, some hippocampal-dependent memory functions may be lateralized, the right hippocampus being predominantly involved in spatial navigation. Our data confirm a functional association between transcriptional activity within the dorsal hippocampus and spatial memory in the rat. "However, when the lesion spares the ventral temporal part, learning remains possible Moser et al., 1993, 1995 , suggesting that although the ventral hippocampus contributes to learning, the dorsal hippocampus is required for optimal performance. The hippocampus is not a homogeneous brain area, and a converging body of evidence indicates a functional dissociation along its septo-temporal axis, the dorsal part being involved more in learning/memory and spatial navigation, while the ventral sub-region is linked more to emotional behavior and regulation of the neuroendocrine stress axis.

Senior Thesis. Withdrawal Effects of Caffeine on Mood and Memory. Saint Anselm College. Key Words: caffeine, mood, memory, California Verbal Learning Test, Profile of Mood States Instruments: California Verbal Learning Test and The Profile of Mood States. Abstract: This study looked at the withdrawal effects of caffeine on mood and memory. It was hypothesized that those who withdrew from caffeine would feel more depressed, nervous, and fatigued, than those who did not withdraw and therefore would not do as well on the memory task. Past Research has shown that those who are more depressed, do not do as well on cognitive tasks because their thought processes are interrupted with intrusive thoughts. There has not been much research on memory while under withdrawal from caffeine, but through this study, we find some interesting and significant results. Twenty four college students participated in this study as subjects. Twelve of the subjects were asked to abstain from caffeine twenty four hours prior to testing....

*  Sequence learning
... Sequences of information or sequences of actions are used in various everyday tasks: "from sequencing sounds in speech, to sequencing movements in typing or playing instruments, to sequencing actions in driving an automobile.". Sequence learning can also be referred to as sequential behavior, behavior sequencing, and serial order in behavior. Watson, and other behaviorists believed behavioral sequencing to be governed by the reflex chain, which states that stimulation caused by an initial movement triggers an additional movement, which triggers another additional movement, and so on. The second is that some movement sequences occur too quickly for elements of the sequences to be triggered by feedback from the preceding elements. Then lastly the neural activity can indicate preparation of upcoming behavior events, including upcoming behavior events in the relatively long-term future. 3 Lashley argued that sequence learning, or behavioral sequencing or serial order in behavior, is not attributable to senso...

(1/7032) High-linoleate and high-alpha-linolenate diets affect learning ability and natural behavior in SAMR1 mice.

Semipurified diets incorporating either perilla oil [high in alpha-linolenate, 18:3(n-3)] or safflower oil [high in linoleate, 18:2(n-6)] were fed to senescence-resistant SAMR1 mouse dams and their pups. Male offspring at 15 mo were examined using behavioral tests. In the open field test, locomotor activity during a 5-min period was significantly higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group. Observations of the circadian rhythm (48 h) of spontaneous motor activity indicated that the safflower oil group was more active than the perilla oil group during the first and second dark periods. The total number of responses to positive and negative stimuli was higher in the safflower oil group than in the perilla oil group in the light and dark discrimination learning test, but the correct response ratio was lower in the safflower oil group. The difference in the (n-6)/(n-3) ratios of the diets reflected the proportions of (n-6) polyunsaturated fatty acids, rather than those of (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the brain total fatty acids, and in the proportions of (n-6) and (n-3) polyunsaturated fatty acids in the total polyunsaturated fatty acids of the brain phospholipids. These results suggest that in SAMR1 mice, the dietary alpha-linolenate/linoleate balance affects the (n-6)/(n-3) ratio of brain phospholipids, and this may modify emotional reactivity and learning ability.  (+info)

(2/7032) Improvement by nefiracetam of beta-amyloid-(1-42)-induced learning and memory impairments in rats.

1. We have previously demonstrated that continuous i.c.v. infusion of amyloid beta-peptide (A beta), the major constituent of senile plaques in the brains of patients with Alzheimer's disease, results in learning and memory deficits in rats. 2. In the present study, we investigated the effects of nefiracetam [N-(2,6-dimethylphenyl)-2-(2-oxo-1-pyrrolidinyl) acetamide, DM-9384] on A beta-(1-42)-induced learning and memory deficits in rats. 3. In the A beta-(1-42)-infused rats, spontaneous alternation behaviour in a Y-maze task, spatial reference and working memory in a water maze task, and retention of passive avoidance learning were significantly impaired as compared with A beta-(40-1)-infused control rats. 4. Nefiracetam, at a dose range of 1-10 mg kg(-1), improved learning and memory deficits in the A beta-(1-42)-infused rats when it was administered p.o. 1 h before the behavioural tests. 5. Nefiracetam at a dose of 3 mg kg(-1) p.o. increased the activity of choline acetyltransferase in the hippocampus of A beta-(1-42)-infused rats. 6. Nefiracetam increased dopamine turnover in the cerebral cortex and striatum of A beta-(1-42)-infused rats, but failed to affect the noradrenaline, serotonin and 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid content. 7. These results suggest that nefiracetam may be useful for the treatment of patients with Alzheimer's disease.  (+info)

(3/7032) Blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor activation suppresses learning-induced synaptic elimination.

Auditory filial imprinting in the domestic chicken is accompanied by a dramatic loss of spine synapses in two higher associative forebrain areas, the mediorostral neostriatum/hyperstriatum ventrale (MNH) and the dorsocaudal neostriatum (Ndc). The cellular mechanisms that underlie this learning-induced synaptic reorganization are unclear. We found that local pharmacological blockade of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors in the MNH, a manipulation that has been shown previously to impair auditory imprinting, suppresses the learning-induced spine reduction in this region. Chicks treated with the NMDA receptor antagonist 2-amino-5-phosphonovaleric acid (APV) during the behavioral training for imprinting (postnatal day 0-2) displayed similar spine frequencies at postnatal day 7 as naive control animals, which, in both groups, were significantly higher than in imprinted animals. Because the average dendritic length did not differ between the experimental groups, the reduced spine frequency can be interpreted as a reduction of the total number of spine synapses per neuron. In the Ndc, which is reciprocally connected with the MNH and not directly influenced by the injected drug, learning-induced spine elimination was partly suppressed. Spine frequencies of the APV-treated, behaviorally trained but nonimprinted animals were higher than in the imprinted animals but lower than in the naive animals. These results provide evidence that NMDA receptor activation is required for the learning-induced selective reduction of spine synapses, which may serve as a mechanism of information storage specific for juvenile emotional learning events.  (+info)

(4/7032) Object location learning and non-spatial working memory of patients with Parkinson's disease may be preserved in "real life" situations.

The presence of a spatial memory deficit in Parkinson's disease (PD) is still a matter of discussion. Nineteen PD patients and 16 controls were given two spatial tests and a non-spatial task. First, the subject was led into a room containing 4 objects and had 10 s to memorize their location. After being led outside, the subject had to place icons representing the objects on a map of the room. Differences between the real and estimated locations were evaluated. Afterwards, the subject had to choose a map showing the correct arrangement of objects from 4 alternatives. Locations of some objects were changed before the second test. The subject had 10 s to detect these changes. One point was given for each change or its absence detected. In the non-spatial working memory task, 8 cards of different shapes were used. The subject had to select a different card each time while the cards were shuffled between choices. Errors consisted of selecting previously chosen cards. The means of the above measures for both groups were compared. Absence of any significant differences suggests that PD patients perform well in "real life" memory tests in contrast to similar computerized tests.  (+info)

(5/7032) Cortical function: jump-starting the brain.

Magnetic stimulation as used in studies of the human brain may not merely disrupt cognitive functions, but also enhance them. The direction of the effect may depend on the frequency of stimulation as much as the area of the brain that is stimulated.  (+info)

(6/7032) Segregating the functions of human hippocampus.

It is now accepted that hippocampal lesions impair episodic memory. However, the precise functional role of the hippocampus in episodic memory remains elusive. Recent functional imaging data implicate the hippocampus in processing novelty, a finding supported by human in vivo recordings and event-related potential studies. Here we measure hippocampal responses to novelty, using functional MRI (fMRI), during an item-learning paradigm generated from an artificial grammar system. During learning, two distinct types of novelty were periodically introduced: perceptual novelty, pertaining to the physical characteristics of stimuli (in this case visual characteristics), and exemplar novelty, reflecting semantic characteristics of stimuli (in this case grammatical status within a rule system). We demonstrate a left anterior hippocampal response to both types of novelty and adaptation of these responses with stimulus familiarity. By contrast to these novelty effects, we also show bilateral posterior hippocampal responses with increasing exemplar familiarity. These results suggest a functional dissociation within the hippocampus with respect to the relative familiarity of study items. Neural responses in anterior hippocampus index generic novelty, whereas posterior hippocampal responses index familiarity to stimuli that have behavioral relevance (i.e., only exemplar familiarity). These findings add to recent evidence for functional segregation within the human hippocampus during learning.  (+info)

(7/7032) Seasonal neuroplasticity in the songbird telencephalon: a role for melatonin.

Neuroplasticity in the vocal control system of songbirds is strongly influenced by seasonal fluctuations in circulating testosterone. These seasonally plastic telencephalic structures are implicated in the learning and production of song in songbirds. The role of the indoleamine melatonin in seasonal adaptations in birds has remained unclear. In this experiment, European starlings were castrated to remove the neuromodulating activity of gonadal steroids and were exposed to different photoperiods to induce reproductive states characteristic of different seasonal conditions. Long days increased the volume of the song-control nucleus high vocal center compared with its volume on short days. Exogenous melatonin attenuated the long-day-induced volumetric increase in high vocal center and also decreased the volume of another song-control nucleus, area X. This effect was observed regardless of reproductive state. To our knowledge, this is the first direct evidence of a role for melatonin in functional plasticity within the central nervous system of vertebrates.  (+info)

(8/7032) Is integer arithmetic fundamental to mental processing?: the mind's secret arithmetic.

Unlike the ability to acquire our native language, we struggle to learn multiplication and division. It may then come as a surprise that the mental machinery for performing lightning-fast integer arithmetic calculations could be within us all even though it cannot be readily accessed, nor do we have any idea of its primary function. We are led to this provocative hypothesis by analysing the extraordinary skills of autistic savants. In our view such individuals have privileged access to lower levels of information not normally available through introspection.  (+info)

If you've got a good old machine, then the first thing you should do is learn to use it.  Turn to the section in the manual on cleaning and maintenance, and work through it.  Don't have the manual?  Look here or drop me an email (click on my avatar and then on send email -- tell me make and model): http://sewing.about.com/od/beginner1/ig/Sewing-Tools/Sewing-Machine-Manuals.htm  If the manual says use sewing machine oil, that's the ONLY oil you use... you can buy a 4 oz bottle of Singer oil at Walmart for a few bucks, or any other brand of sewing machine oil -- most fabric stores and sewing machine shops have it available.  WD-40 and the like are not sewing machine oils; they evaporate and your machine freezes up.  3-in-1 and similar household oils solidify and freeze your machine, as do vegetable oils.  

Learn the parts of a needle: http://www.schmetzneedles.com/learning/all-about-needles.htm and something about the types of needles.  Bad or wrong size or backwards in the machine needles make your machine not stitch right.  Comparison photos of needles here: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/17206792

Next learn the parts of your sewing machine and figure out how to change needles and presser feet.  Learn what your presser feet are... most likely you've got at least  an all purpose foot and a zipper and cording foot.

Learn how to thread your machine correctly, step by step, from the manual.  See some of the common problems beginners have with misthreaded machines: http://www.picturetrail.com/sfx/album/view/22521551

Now unthread the machine (and you can put in an old needle for this),  find some paper and practice stitching, first straight seams, then curves, using a medium length straight stitch: http://ca.answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20081109161404AA5JiD7

Buy stuff as you need it.  I ask beginners to buy a packet of size 80/12 universal point sewing machine needles (they'll sew most garment weight fabrics), a good pair of bent handled dressmaker shears with the longest blades you can open fully easily (I like Kai... the style you want is like the N5220 number and up).  Fiskars is a good budget shear, but you can have Kai for not much more).  Also two spools of the same thread in different colors that you're likely to use later), some pins (I prefer beginners to use the big yellow headed "quilting pins" because you can see them and pull them out before they get to the presser foot) (don't sew over pins! bad habit, bent pins, broken machine), a fiberglas or vinyl measuring tape, 60 or 120", a decent iron, preferably one that doesn't turn itself off every few minutes (Black and Decker Classic is a good budget choice), an ironing board, and a yard of plain white or unbleached muslin, 45 or 60" wide, and a packet of hand sewing needles (I prefer embroidery/crewel because they have bigger eyes).   Also a good seam ripper (I like the flat-handled Clover jobbies -- cheap rippers are often snaggly) because you'll be doing a lot of frog stitching at first (rip-it! rip it!).

For an early lessons, we take the muslin, rip in half lengthwise, and then rip one half crosswise into two pieces, one about 12" and one about 24" long.  You now have three presscloths, and if you want a lesson in hand sewing, we'll hem the smallest by hand, and do a couple of different machine hems on the 24" piece.  

After that, buy stuff as you need it.  Thrift shops often have bags of notions with some zippers and bias tape and lace and buttons and stuff in it... those are often good practice fodder for very little money.  

The other early lesson you can do for yourself (repeat as often as you like in your sewing career!) is to find a commercially sewn garment that is something you'd like to make sometime -- it doesn't have to fit, it can be stained or torn -- and take it apart.  If you've got a digital camera, take photos of the construction... which seams were sewn last?  next to last?  What stitches were used for what purpose?  Where's the interfacing, what type did they use, and how was it put on.  For bonus points later, you can re-make the garment you've ripped apart.  This sort of unsewing lesson is one of the most valuable ways I know to start figuring out for yourself how things should go together.

When you're ready for zippers, do them like the zipper tutorials here:  http://www.fashion-incubator.com/tutorials/ -- even though it looks more complicated than the way sewing books and zipper packages teach, it's *really* worth it for the nice results.  (That's also a good site to start reading... some of it will be over your head at the moment because it's meant for people starting small sewn products businesses, but Kathleen has a lot of good things for those of us who sew at home in those pages, too.)


Do you think kids should start learning a second language at young ages like 4?


Students usually start learning second languages in middle school, but at younger ages you tend to be able to learn languages more easily. I mean they can can learn for example if they already speak English...the English and Spanish (if that's the language they're learning) form of the word at the same time. My elementary school started Spanish classes in 1st grade, so us students were 6 at the time. Having a Spanish class didn't hinder my ability in English or other subjects at all.
----------

I used to teach preschool, 3 yr olds. A young Korean couple, going to the local university, enrolled their daughter in my class solely for the purpose of having her learn English. Their English wasn't so great, and they wanted her to learn. They had only ever spoke Korean to her. 

The first week, her mother came with her. The little girl wouldn't speak, didn't play with the other children.

The second week, Mom left her there with us. She didn't speak to anyone still, other than to pound at the door and scream for "Ohhhhhhhmaaaaaaaa!"

The 3rd week, she started playing with a little boy. He spoke English, she spoke Korean, and they had a great time.

A few weeks later, we were outside for recess, and I heard this new voice asking, "Push me!" It took me a few minutes to local who, and figure out it was her. She was on the swing and wanted a push.

After that, she spoke English non-stop, like she'd been doing so since birth. 

The best time to learn language is early, that's when the brain is most able to learn language.


I need financial assistance for my sisters learning disability treatment?


I have a 19 year old sister who has epilepsy. She developed a learning disability from the seazures, and it is believed to be visual as well as auditory. However, due to the high costs of testing and theraphy, she has not received  treatment yet.  We do have insurance, but they will not cover it; As this is treatment without medication though the Drake Institute, it's called bio-feedback. We need assistance to help pay for her tratment. I would love to know if anyone out there can give me information on where to look for help, of if anyone has been in a similar situation, please, please let me know what you have done. Also, if you, or anyone you know has been treated through the DRAKE INSTITUTE, please share the story, as I am really hopeful this will work, but would like to hear real cases. Any words of advise will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for your help!
----------

I also have an adult nephew with learning disabilities so I know what you're going through.

Because she is an adult, start with her county's department of social services.  They will get the ball rolling.  She will be sent to a psychiatrist for testing to see how bad her disability is.  Once they have that information, it is turned over to the state's department of rehabilitative services and she will get a case worker.  Of course, she has to go to all of these appointments.  And, she will need to sign a waiver at each department that they can talk to you about her results and treatment because she's an adult.
We did this for my nephew and he now goes to classes and counseling.  We're hoping that they will be able to get him a job and provide him with a group home to live in.  He's 29.
Of course, she will pay nothing for these services.  Nothing.

Best wishes to you and your sister.


What are the ways to motivate American 3rd grader to love learning and aim for higher educational goals?


Hi. Please advise me how to motivate elementary school boys in America to love learning? 
P.S. Slapping, yelling or threatening will NOT be accepted as an answer.
----------

Read the newspaper (silently) in front of them. 
Read the tv guide (aloud) when selecting programs in front of them. 
Tell them on appropriate occasions about what you have learned from reading. 
Tell them what you learned from school that you couldn't have learned anywhere else. 
Ask them what they were exposed to in school and SHOW INTEREST in the subject matter. 

Ask them if they'd like to browse for reading materials, even boy-type reading in the library.  If not, have them exposed to the people who read in the library and tell them they can borrow videos in the library.  Look for some educational videos, like war documentaries or How Machines Work or similar titles.  Bring the kids to story-telling at the library (if they have that).  
Tell your kids stories that you learned from books.  
Ask your kids to tell you what stories (or subjects) they like from school.  Ask them lots of questions, including details and how they feel about those things.  Like "Can you imagine being Robinson Crusoe and being stuck on an island for years?", and "Would you like to learn how to sail a boat?", and "Do you know all the parts of being a Pentathlon or Decathlon champion?", and "Have you watched an entire Olympics event?"
Tell them that if they want a sports scholarship, it helps immensely if they find an academic subject they want to study.  Suggest to each of them a subject that fits their interests or their abilities.  A kid into car engines might find science and mechanics fun.  A kid into science fiction might find Astronomy fun, especially astrophysics.  A kid into music might be surprised if you tell him that studying Classical Music will help him compose and how historical figures found a way to orchestrate beautiful sounds.  Tune in a classical music station (at low volume) during study time.  Point out to the kids that a lot of answers they might have can be answered with Internet search engines, sometimes just by asking a question.  The kids who like to pull flies apart ought to be encouraged to learn biology and what makes a fly fly, and it is fascinating that a bee can fly with wings much smaller than you would expect if you were to compare it to an airplane.  Kids who love helicopters would be fascinated to watch a motion picture of a hummingbird hovering and flying backward, and they only feed on nectar (which is sugar water with some vitamins).  Kids into swimming and underwater shows and movies would be interested to know that swim fins are modeled on fish fins because fish are the best swimmers.  Kids fascinated by learning can be challenged to try to answer the question:  Rank these animals by intelligence, and compare to humans:  pig, dog, horse, porpoise, cat.  
Any kids who play with dinosaurs or love their still pictures or movies about them will be interested to know that "survivors" of the dinosaur age, their descendants are now believed to be birds!  Ask some kids to look into how dinosaurs and birds are similar, how dinosaurs and reptiles are different, and have one or more do a presentation to the class on what they learned.  It can't hurt to have kids do "movie reviews" with an emphasis on what they learned that was factual from the movies.


What type of learning disability do people with Marfan Syndrome have?


I find several websites noting that people who have Marfan Syndrome, may have learning disability/difficulty. What exactly does that mean? Is it problems with Reading? Writing? Math? Verbal/nonverbal? Speaking/listening? Auditory? Interpreting? Categorizing? Memory? Language? Any other?
----------

People with marfan's are usually tall.  They have problems with aneurysms, lung problems, heart problems from arteries being stretched to their maximum.  I have had hundreds of marfan patients but never saw one with a learning disability.  That's a new one to me.


How can an adult overcome a learning disability?


I am 26 years old, and believe that I have a learning disability. I am sure that I have potential, but feel that there is blockage. I have only had a few jobs, because many didn't work out for me. School was hard, too. I want to be successful. What is your advice? Can a psychiatrist help me?
----------

Ok I am wondering what learning disablilty you feel you have? My son has learning difficulties....he has attention and social difficulties, which have lead to difficulties in the classroom. My concern is that just because you have only had afew jobs you liked (not an odd thing, how many of us truely love our jobs on a everyday basis) and that school was hard (when is it not for anyone) that you are trying to find excuses for your inablilty to achieve success.

Maybe you do need to see a therapist, not for learning difficulties, but for self doubt and motivation. You are still young and have a lifetime ahead, you are so packed full of potenial that you sound like you need to find the area that interests you and fires you up and concentrate your mind and will power on that. Also think positively, self belief is a powerful tool hun.

And by the way, my son has AD/HD, OCD (Oppositional conduct disorder), Dyslexia, and Anxiety. Hes only 13 but is so strong and has such a powerful self belief that these issus are a strength not a weakness :) Remember there is alway someone worse off than you, its about how we use our own powers that defines us :)
