Conditions characterized by a significant discrepancy between an individual's perceived level of intellect and their ability to acquire new language and other cognitive skills. These disorders may result from organic or psychological conditions. Relatively common subtypes include DYSLEXIA, DYSCALCULIA, and DYSGRAPHIA.
The use of very large doses of vitamins or other naturally occurring substances normally present in the body, frequently for the treatment of mental disorders.
A cognitive disorder characterized by an impaired ability to comprehend written and printed words or phrases despite intact vision. This condition may be developmental or acquired. Developmental dyslexia is marked by reading achievement that falls substantially below that expected given the individual's chronological age, measured intelligence, and age-appropriate education. The disturbance in reading significantly interferes with academic achievement or with activities of daily living that require reading skills. (From DSM-IV)
A psychological test consisting of nine geometric designs on cards. The subject is asked to redraw them from memory after each one is presented individually.
Impaired ability in numerical concepts. These inabilities arise as a result of primary neurological lesion, are syndromic (e.g., GERSTMANN SYNDROME ) or acquired due to brain damage.
Abnormalities of motor function that are associated with organic and non-organic cognitive disorders.
A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-V)
Learning the correct route through a maze to obtain reinforcement. It is used for human or animal populations. (Thesaurus of Psychological Index Terms, 6th ed)
Instructional use of examples or cases to teach using problem-solving skills and critical thinking.
A major affective disorder marked by severe mood swings (manic or major depressive episodes) and a tendency to remission and recurrence.
Learning that is manifested in the ability to respond differentially to various stimuli.
A response to a cue that is instrumental in avoiding a noxious experience.
Learning to respond verbally to a verbal stimulus cue.
Psychiatric illness or diseases manifested by breakdowns in the adaptational process expressed primarily as abnormalities of thought, feeling, and behavior producing either distress or impairment of function.
Any situation where an animal or human is trained to respond differentially to two stimuli (e.g., approach and avoidance) under reward and punishment conditions and subsequently trained under reversed reward values (i.e., the approach which was previously rewarded is punished and vice versa).
Persistent and disabling ANXIETY.
Those disorders that have a disturbance in mood as their predominant feature.
Learning to make a series of responses in exact order.
Complex mental function having four distinct phases: (1) memorizing or learning, (2) retention, (3) recall, and (4) recognition. Clinically, it is usually subdivided into immediate, recent, and remote memory.
Categorical classification of MENTAL DISORDERS based on criteria sets with defining features. It is produced by the American Psychiatric Association. (DSM-IV, page xxii)
Relatively permanent change in behavior that is the result of past experience or practice. The concept includes the acquisition of knowledge.
Education of the individual who markedly deviates intellectually, physically, socially, or emotionally from those considered to be normal, thus requiring special instruction.

Improvement by nefiracetam of beta-amyloid-(1-42)-induced learning and memory impairments in rats. (1/1034)

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)

Generalised uridine diphosphate galactose-4-epimerase deficiency. (2/1034)

The generalised form of epimerase deficiency galactosaemia has been described in only two children from unrelated families. Their progress is reported and three other affected children from these families are described. The initial presentation was similar to classic galactosaemia. Despite treatment all have shown poor growth and moderate learning difficulties. Three have sensorineural deafness and four have pronounced dysmorphic features. The two older female patients have normal pubertal development.  (+info)

Assessing general practitioners' care of adult patients with learning disability: case-control study. (3/1034)

OBJECTIVE: To compare general practitioners' care of adult patients with learning disability with that of control patients in the same practice. DESIGN: Case-control study of patients and controls by a structured interview study of general practitioners. SETTING: Avon. PATIENTS: 78 adult patients with learning disability and 78 age and sex matched controls--cared for by 62 general practitioners. MAIN MEASURES: Number and content of consultations and opinions of the general practitioners. RESULTS: There were more consultations for diseases of the central nervous system and of the skin among the patients than the controls (15 v 3 for central nervous system disease and 15 v 4 skin disease). There were also significantly fewer recordings of blood pressure and cervical cytology tests (34 v 51 for blood pressure and 2 v 18 for cytology). Although more patients were taking drugs affecting the central nervous system (33 v 6), more controls were taking drugs for musculoskeletal complaints (17 v 7). CONCLUSION: Although adult patients with learning disability consult with their general practitioners at equivalent rates to other patients, they get less preventive care and consult for different types of problems than do other patients. The reasons for these differences in preventive care are not clear. Carers and general practitioners should be informed of these differences to ensure that appropriate care is given.  (+info)

Cognitive functioning in people with epilepsy plus severe learning disabilities: a systematic analysis of predictors of daytime arousal and attention. (4/1034)

In spite of the high prevalence of epilepsy and the importance of preserving cognitive function in people with learning disabilities, this population has received relatively little research attention. This study sets out systematically to investigate possible predictive factors of inter-ictal states of arousal and attention. The daytime function of 28 people with epilepsy and severe learning disabilities was assessed by performance on a two-choice reaction time vigilance task, behavioural analysis of time-sampled video recordings taken in naturalistic settings, and carer ratings on visual analogue scales. This methodology yielded eight discrete functional measures, from which two further index measures were derived after principal components analysis. A range of clinical and psychosocial assessments was completed and subjects had 36 hour ambulatory EEG and sleep EEG monitoring. Regression models identified significant predictors of cognitive function from a range of potential explanatory variables i.e. demographic, clinical, pharmacological, background EEG rhythms and sleep parameters. Results indicated that greater severity of learning disability, longer bedtime periods, poor sleep efficiency, frequent seizures and antiepileptic drug polytherapy were significant predictor variables. Explained variance (adjusted R2) was greater than 50% for six of 10 outcome variables (range up to 85%). Furthermore, significant regression equations (P < 0.05) were obtained for all but one variable. Thus, these results appear reasonably robust. Results support an interactional model of daytime arousal and attention in people with epilepsy plus severe learning disabilities. Inter-ictal cognitive function appears to be mediated by a combination of organic, circadian (sleep wake), clinical and pharmacological factors.  (+info)

School problems and the family physician. (5/1034)

Children with school problems pose a challenge for the family physician. A multidisciplinary team of professionals can most appropriately assess and manage complex learning problems, which are often the cause of poor school performance. The family physician's primary role in this process is to identify or exclude medical causes of learning difficulties. An understanding of the complicated nature of school problems, the methods used to assess, diagnose and treat them, and the resources available to support the child and family are essential to successful management. Various references and resources are helpful for a more in-depth study of specific school problems.  (+info)

The management of epilepsy in a hospital for people with a learning disability. (6/1034)

The study examined changes in the use of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in a large hospital for people with a learning disability over a 2 year period, the use of investigations, and the presence of medication side-effects. The surveys were carried out in 1993 and 1995/6. In 1993, 27% of patients were being treated for epilepsy and in 1995/6, 30.1%. Ninety percent and 82.4% of patients, respectively, were receiving one or two AEDs. In the second survey there were fewer prescriptions for phenobarbitone (5.8% vs. 12.5%) and an increase in the use of lamotrigine (21.6% vs. 5%), gabapentin (5.8% vs. 0) and vigabatrin (3.9% vs. 2.5% in 1993). Side-effects were recorded in 6 (11.8%) patients. Seven (21.2%) patients receiving carbamazepine were found to have hyponatraemia. Of the 54 electroencephalograms (EEGs) requested, 41 (76%) were reported as abnormal. Six CT brain scans had been conducted, of which five were abnormal. People receiving antipsychotic drugs had fewer seizures than average.  (+info)

The attenuation of learning impairments induced after exposure to CO or trimethyltin in mice by sigma (sigma) receptor ligands involves both sigma1 and sigma2 sites. (7/1034)

1. Sigma (sigma) receptor ligands were previously reported to alleviate learning and memory impairments on several pharmacological and pathological rodent models of amnesia. Such effect was demonstrated as involving the sigma1 subtype of sigma receptor. 2. In this study, we characterized the pharmacological effect mediated by sigma ligands on two lesional models of amnesia in mice: (1) the hypoxia-related learning and memory impairment model induced by repeated exposure to carbon monoxide (CO) gas; and (2) the intoxication with trimethyltin (1 mg kg(-1)). 3. The selective sigma1 ligand PRE-084 (1 mg kg(-1)) or the non-selective sigma1/sigma2 compounds DTG (0.1 mg kg(-1)), BD1008 (3 mg kg(-1)), and haloperidol (0.1 mg kg(-1)) reversed significantly the spontaneous alternation deficits observed 7 days after exposure to CO or 14 days after intoxication with trimethyltin. 4. The selective sigma1 receptor antagonist NE-100 (1 mg kg(-1)) was ineffective by itself, but blocked completely the PRE-084 effects, partially the DTG effects, and did not affect the effects induced by BD1008 or haloperidol. 5. A similar pharmacological profile was observed in the step-down type passive avoidance test performed 8 days after exposure to CO. 6. These results show that, in contrast to the previously reported amnesia models, the impairments induced after exposure to CO or intoxication with trimethyltin could be alleviated not only by sigma1 receptor agonists but also by sigma2 agonists. The particular pattern of neurodegeneration observed in these lesional models may explain these differences.  (+info)

Mild impairment of learning and memory in mice overexpressing the mSim2 gene located on chromosome 16: an animal model of Down's syndrome. (8/1034)

Human Sim2 is a product of one of the genes located on human chromosome 21q22 and is a homolog of Drosophila single-minded ( sim ) which is a critical player in midline development of the central nervous system of the fly. Since Sim2 mRNA is expressed in facial, skull, palate and vertebra primordia in human and rodent embryos, features that are associated with phenotypes of Down's syndrome (DS), its trisomic state is suspected to contribute to the symptoms of DS. Here we describe that mSim2 mRNA is expressed in hippocampus and amygdala of adult mice, and that while mice overexpressing mSim2 under the control of the beta-actin promoter are viable and fertile and have superficially normal skeletal, brain and heart structures, they exhibit a moderate defect in context-dependent fear conditioning and a mild defect in the Morris water maze test. Taken together, our data show that overdosage of Sim2 may be important for the pathogenesis of Down's syndrome, especially mental retardation.  (+info)

Although learning disorders occur in very young children, they are usually not recognized until the child reaches school age. About one-third of children who have learning disabilities also have ADHD, which makes it hard to focus. Evaluation and testing by a trained professional can help identify a learning disorder. The next step is special education, which involves helping your child in the areas where he or she needs the most help. Sometimes tutors or speech or language therapists also work with the children. Learning disorders do not go away, but strategies to work around them can make them less of a problem.. NIH: National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke. ...
Developmental learning disorders affect many children, impairing their experience in the classroom and hindering many aspects of their life. Once a bleak sentence associated with life-long difficulties, several learning disorders can now be successfully alleviated, directly benefiting from promising interventions. In this review, we focus on two of the most prevalent learning disorders, dyslexia and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Recent advances have refined our understanding of the specific neural networks that are altered in these disorders, yet questions remain regarding causal links between neural changes and behavioral improvements. After briefly reviewing the theoretical foundations of dyslexia and ADHD, we explore their distinct and shared characteristics, and discuss the comorbidity of the two disorders. We then examine current interventions, and consider the benefits of approaches that integrate remediation within other activities to encourage sustained motivation and
October is Learning Disabilities Awareness Month, which means it is time to recognize children, adolescents and adults with learning disabilities -- and the educators who serve them. The month is celebrated to bring attention to individuals that have disabilities like dyslexia, dyscalculia and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. In 1985, the observation was introduced as a proclamation by President Ronald Reagan. Since then, the month has been used by organizations, such as the National Center for Learning Disabilities and the Learning Disabilities Association of America, to educate the public about those with learning disabilities. According to the National Center for Learning Disabilities, there are 15 million people in the United States with learning disabilities. One of the biggest challenges faced by individuals with learning disabilities is the overall lack of acceptance by society. This month is an excellent time for people to pay more attention to people with learning disabilities. ...

Information is communicated by means of words (language output) or though muscle activity such as writing, drawing, gesturing (motor output). An individual might have a language disability (also called expressive language disability) or a motor disability.. Language Disability. It is possible to think of language output as being spontaneous or on demand. Spontaneous means that the person initiates the conversation. Thoughts have been organized and words found before speaking. Demand language means that one is asked a question or asked to explain something. Now, she must organize his thoughts, find the right words, and speak at the same time. Most people with a language disability have little difficulty with spontaneous language. However, in a demand situation, the same person might struggle to organize her thoughts or to find the right words.. Motor Disability.

Cognitive assessment of students typically involves administering one or more standardized, norm-referenced tests but also involves recognition of the importance of multiple data sources; that is, cognitive assessment provides only one source of data to inform classification decisions, such as Specific Learning Disability (SLD), Intellectual Disability, and Gifted and Talented. Information gathered from cognitive assessment includes current levels of functioning in multiple cognitive domains such as accumulated knowledge, reasoning, working memory, and many others. In addition, cognitive assessment data provide insight into how a student learns and why he or she is struggling academically (e.g., Compton, Fuchs, Fuchs, Lambert, & Hamlet, 2012; Sanders, Berninger, & Abbott, 2017). This information assists in formulating recommendations, instructional strategies, and interventions when integrated with other critical data sources (e.g., behavioral observations of students approach to solving ...

Cogmed Working Memory Training is an evidence-based program for helping children, adolescents, and adults sustainably improve attention by training their working memory. Founded in 2001 by neuroscientists at the Karolinska Institute in Stockholm, Sweden, Cogmed training has been in successful use since 2003 and in Australia since 2009. The Cogmed system is applied in more than 20 countries and 10 languages.. Working memory is the ability to keep information in your mind, manipulate it, and use it within short periods of time. It is central to attention, concentration and problem solving. Think of it as your attention stamina in the face of information overload. Strong working memory skills play a key role in academic and workplace success.. Studies consistently show that problems with attention and learning are often caused by poor working memory. That holds true for those with ADHD, learning problems, traumatic brain injury and specific learning disabilities. It is also often true for ...

A pandemic does not abrogate our responsibility to protect the lives and human rights of people with a learning disability, says Keri-Michѐle Lodge. The covid-19 pandemic amplifies the everyday discrimination experienced by people with a learning disability (also known as intellectual disability), yet this group remains glaringly absent from the UK governments coronavirus strategy. The symptoms of this neglect have been present throughout the past few months. First, the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence issued a clarification about people with a learning disability only after publishing guidance on using the Clinical Frailty Scale to identify who may be appropriate for critical care, demonstrating that this group is, at best, an afterthought. Worse still are the reports that followed of people in learning disability care homes being told they were unlikely to be prioritised for hospital care if they contracted covid-19. Clinicians have also had to be reminded that learning ...
People with a learning disability are at increased risk of developing dementia as they age. Figures show that one in ten people with a learning disability develop young onset Alzheimers disease between the age of 50 and 65. People with Downs syndrome are more at risk of developing dementia from their mid-30s onwards; with one in three people with Downs syndrome developing dementia in their 50s. Dementia is less likely to be detected in the early stages for people with a learning disability due to diagnostic overshadowing, meaning that a diagnosis is either given much later down the pathway, or even not at all. Alternatively, a persons learning disability could also lead to an inaccurate diagnosis being given - a person could be presumed to have dementia if for example, they are of a certain age and have Downs syndrome, when in fact their symptoms could be another health condition ...
As a child goes through teenage life, he or she is exposed to many different challenges, stressors, and prospects. An imperative factor in handling these challenges is a positive self-concept and high self-esteem. Through teenage life, schools should be preparing students to become a comfy part of the general population, quickly bending to their environs (Saghatoleslami, 2010). A population of students that necessitate closer attention are Learners who have been diagnosed with a learning disability. Learners with learning disabilities are likely to represent 2% to 10% of the student population (Reese, Bird, &Tripp, 2007). Learners with learning disabilities tussle with self-concept and self-esteem, which in tum can lead to amendment difficulties, substance abuse, depression, and suicide ideation. It is, therefore, essential to monitor the self-worth of students and help mend and advance their self-concept and self-esteem.. When bearing in mind students with learning disabilities, it is important ...
The family of a 20 year-old man with severe learning disabilities who died when his head became trapped in the bars of his hospital bed may sue the primary care trust concerned, Community Care has learned.. An inquest at Chelmsford County Hall last week into the death of Kyle Flack, who died from asphyxiation at Basildon Hospital in October 2006, ruled that neglect was a contributing factor.. Frances Swaine, partner in the Flacks law firm Leigh Day and Co, said Flack had been involved in the same sort of incident at the hospital in 2005. She said staff had at the time introduced additional padding to his cot, as a result of his familys concerns, but information on Flacks needs was not passed on to staff looking after him the following year..

The term learning disabilities covers a wide spectrum. People whose learning disability is mild learn to speak, read and write, while people whose learning disability is more severe may need higher levels of support to communicate. A learning disability usually develops before or at birth and cannot be cured. Skilled teaching and the right level of support enables people to achieve their full potential, building confidence and independence.

In the brains of individuals with learning difficulties, imaging reveals both differences in the sizes of some structures and in the way the brain communicates across lobes and hemispheres. Areas most associated with memory, language, visual processing, attention, and self-esteem typically display some kind of atypical activity. Generally, EEGs show overall excessive beta, which can contribute to anxiety, inattention, and restlessness. Brains of individuals with learning difficulties also reveal excessive hypocoherence. In other words, brain regions that should be communicating and working together to accomplish a task arent sharing enough information with one another. If the brain is unable to communicate properly, its no wonder that person would struggle to accomplish or process something. Different learning difficulties will affect certain brain regions more than others. For example, issues with functioning of the parietal lobes are often associated with math difficulties. The prefrontal ...
Many children have hidden conditions that result in disabilities. Some of the hidden disabilities found in children include attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), autism spectrum, specific learning disabilities, and mental health conditions. These conditions may not yet be recognized and diagnosed as a disability, yet may still lead to unexpected or challenging behavior. When unexpected behaviors arise, ask yourself if a hidden disability might be a contributing factor. The right environment can enable children with hidden disabilities to thrive. Many people find it effective to use strategies developed for children with disabilities, even if they dont know for sure that a disability is present. ...
Today is a victory for children with specific learning disabilities and their families! COPAA knows firsthand how families have been subjected to intimidating and discriminatory treatment as they have sought to include the proper terms of a childs condition as part of a special education evaluation, eligibility determination, or within a childs Individualized Education Program (IEP). We now have a valuable tool to assure these practices stop. Marshall continued, The guidance from Assistant Secretary Yudin is unequivocal. It tells states they must never prohibit the use of the terms dyslexia, dyscalculia and dysgraphia and specifically says that such terms are meant to be used to help implement a truly individualized IEP and the specific accommodations, modifications or supports that a child may need to succeed in school. COPAA was proud to sign the letter that led to this outcome and looks forward to helping support an improved conversation about specific ...
Shri Thaawarchand Gehlot, Minister of Social Justice and Empowerment has said that in the Rights of Persons With Disabilities (RPWD) Bill, the Disability has been defined based on an evolving and dynamic concept and the types of disabilities have been increased from existing 7 to 21 and the Central Government will have the power to add more types of disabilities. Addressing a Press Conference on the occasion of International Day of Persons with Disabilities (3rd December), he said that Speech and Language Disability and Specific Learning Disability have been added for the first time. Acid Attack Victims have been included. Dwarfism, muscular dystrophy have has been indicated as separate class of specified disability. The new categories of disabilities also included three blood disorders, Thalassemia, Hemophilia and Sickle Cell disease.. Shri Gehlot informed that the Bill provides for penalties for offences committed against persons with disabilities. Designated special courts have been ...
My name is Lisa Wilhelm. This is my sixth year teaching in the Stewartville School District and my third year at BCI. I am originally from Lanesboro, and graduated from Winona State University in the mid 1980s with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Art Education. I have been teaching ever since then (30 years so far). For eighteen of those years I taught K-12 Art with the last twelve being at Fillmore Central Elementary and former Middle School in Preston. While managing an inclusive visual arts classroom, I discovered that many of my most rewarding teaching experiences were with students with special needs.. In 2006, after attaining K-12 Graduate Licensure in Specific Learning Disabilities (SLD) at WSU, I resigned my art position at Fillmore Central to accept a K-12 Special Education assignment at a charter school in Winona. I returned to Fillmore Central the next year as the lead high school special education teacher. While at FCHS, I attended Augsburg College to become certified in Emotional ...
According to the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA), a disability is defined as a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities, a history or record of such an impairment(s) or something perceived by others as such an impairment(s).. Some examples of physical or cognitive conditions include orthopedic, visual, speech or hearing impairments; epilepsy, emotional illness, specific learning disabilities and addictions (individuals who currently engage in the illegal use of drugs are not protected by the ADA). Major life activities include functions such as performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working.. Please note that describing a disability does not make a disability. Test anxiety is not currently considered a disability under the ADA. For more information, the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th Edition (DSM-5) is a good reference to use in understanding ADA-recognized ...
Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and / or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction.. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge.. Adopted by IDA Board, November 2002 ...
5) environment deprivation.. While none of these theories is unequivocally supported by current data, all of these factors may contribute in varying degrees to learning disabilities.12. Brain damage and overt brain dysfunction would appear to account for a relatively small percentage of children with learning disorders. The great majority of other children with learning disorders do not typically show many of the neurological symptoms associated with brain damage in adults. For instance, EEG and CT studies have not shown structural damage and abnormal EEGs correlated with known brain damage are not consistently observed in children with learning disorders.13 Rather than direct brain damage, there is evidence that abnormal physiological or biochemical processes may be responsible for malfunction in some part of the cerebral cortex.. Electrophysiological recording studies have associated specific high frequency EEG and AEP (averaged evoked potentials) abnormalities with various types of learning ...

Whilst these proceedings were underway, our NHS service accepted a referral from social services about the boys well-being. One session of multidisciplinary team assessment (including psychiatry, clinical psychology and specialist social work) was conducted for both boys and their carers. This produced two reports of less than ten pages each for each boy. The findings were presented at the end of the single session, provided in the context of a pre-arranged professionals meeting and indicated multiple mental health problems. Both boys had intellectual delay and difficulties with adaptive functioning, indicating significant learning disability, so a referral to Children with Learning Disabilities Services was made. Both boys also had a specific learning disability (i.e., dyslexia) over and above their intellectual delay, with their literacy skills behind both their chronological age and IQ. Thus, the plan was to liaise with school with recommendations to address the difficulties and to support ...
Dyslexia is a syndrome: a collection of associated characteristics that vary in degree and from person to person. These characteristics encompass not only distinctive clusters of problems but sometimes also distinctive talents. Professor Tim Miles comments that dyslexia is typically characterised by an unusual balance of skills.. The syndrome of dyslexia is now widely recognised as being a specific learning disability of neurological origin that does not imply low intelligence or poor educational potential, and which is independent of race and social background.. Although dyslexia seems to be more prevalent amongst males than females, the exact ratio is unknown: the most commonly quoted figures are between 3:1 and 5:1. The evidence suggests that in at least two-thirds of cases, dyslexia has a genetic cause, but in some cases birth difficulties may play an aetiological role.. Dyslexia may overlap with related conditions such as dyspraxia, attention deficit disorder (with or without ...
Does your child struggle with academics, and you are concerned that they may have a disability? There are even special education teaching opportunities available in hospitals, mental health facilities and doctors offices. 9.

Dyspraxia is a Specific Learning Difficulty that affects body coordination, fine motor skills, and can also affect speech and articulation as well as perception and thought. Dyspraxia can cause difficulties for an individual in a variety of areas in life, including education, work and employment.. Early childhood indicators of Dyspraxia can include difficulty with self-care, writing and typing, riding a bike or other activities that involve balance and coordination. Within adults it can affect ones ability to learn to drive, organise or undertake DIY activities. As with other Specific Learning Difficulties such as Dyslexia, people with Dyspraxia can experience problems with memory and the processing of information.. Having Dyspraxia is not an indicator of low intellectual ability. This is a common misconception. The term Specific Learning Difficulty is and an umbrella term for Dyslexia, Dyspraxia, Dyscalculia, Dysgraphia, and Attention Deficit (Hyperactivity) Disorder (AD(H)D). Each of these ...

The International Dyslexia Association defines dyslexia the following way:. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge. (Adopted by the International Dyslexia Association Board of Directors, November 12, 2002)​.

The studies found that grossly disproportionate numbers of minority students are identified as eligible for services, and too often placed in isolated and restrictive educational settings. When compared with their white counterparts, African-American children were almost three times more likely to be labeled mentally retarded, according to a paper by Thomas B. Parrish, managing research scientist at the American Institutes of Research.[24] New statistics compiled on each state show both over and under-representation of minorities in the categories for mental retardation, specific learning disabilities, and emotional disturbance. African-American students in Connecticut, Mississippi, South Carolina, North Carolina, and Nebraska are more than four times as likely to be identified as mentally retarded than white students living in those states. In Florida, Alabama, Delaware, New Jersey, and Colorado, the number of African-American students identified as mentally retarded was more than ...
Before addressing the question of how to solve the problems of diagnosis and treatment, we must first explore some terms common in dyslexia. The term as defined by the International Dyslexia Association is:. Dyslexia is a specific learning disability that is neurobiological in origin. It is characterized by difficulties with accurate and/or fluent word recognition and by poor spelling and decoding abilities. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonological component of language that is often unexpected in relation to other cognitive abilities and the provision of effective classroom instruction. Secondary consequences may include problems in reading comprehension and reduced reading experience that can impede growth of vocabulary and background knowledge (August, 2002).. The phoneme is the smallest unit of speech that distinguishes one word forms another (Shaywitz, 2004, p 41). The phonological module is the functional part of the brain where sounds of language are put ...

Boredom comes in many forms. Sometimes children with learning disabilities are bored because they have nothing to do. Other times, children with learning disabilities are bored because they arent engaged in the activity that they are expected to participate in.. But boredom can be managed by controlling how you think. This really is a critical skill for people of all ages, with or without learning disabilities. With practice, you can make your downtime productive in a way that then fuels your work time.. Im bored, says the child.. Every parent in the world wants to roll their eyes when their child says this. The parent looks at their to do list and very much wishes that he could make time to be bored.. What is boredom? Is there really such a thing?. Boredom is a physiologic state when the sensory nerves (that send information to the brain) become lulled into a state of nerve accommodation. The nerves have actually become so accustomed to the experience that it is filtered out, or the ...
There have been some suggestion that colic babies tend to develop educational problems in later life though there is no direct evidence for this. However an article in the New Yorker may add some weight to this. Professor Barry Lester has been studying colic for most of his professional career suggest that some colicky babies are hypersensitive to normal stimuli and over-react to normal stimulus. He has also studied 3 - 8 year-olds who had colic as a child and found the 75% suffered from behavioral problems, including a limited attention span, tantrums, and irritation after being touched or coming in contact with particular fabrics or tags in their clothing. Lester speculates that Colic threatens to cause problems in the childs ability to form relationships, because the child doesnt learn behavioral regulation and develops problems with impulse control,.

Objective: To describe the trends for and severity of dyskinetic cerebral palsy (CP) in a European collaborative study between CP registers, the Surveillance of Cerebral Palsy in Europe (SCPE).. Methods: In children born in 1976-1996, the prevalence of dyskinetic CP was calculated. Walking ability, accompanying impairments and perinatal adverse events were analysed.. Results: There were 578 children with dyskinetic CP. Seventy per cent were born at term. The prevalence per 1,000 live births increased from 0.08 in the 1970s to 0.14 in the 1990s. For the 386 children (70%) with a birth weight of ≥ 2,500 g, the increase was significant (0.05 to 0.12). There was a contemporary decrease in neonatal mortality among children with a birth weight of ≥ 2,500 g. Sixteen per cent of the children walked without aids, 24% with aids and 59% needed a wheelchair. Severe learning disability was present in 52%, epilepsy in 51% and severe visual and hearing impairment in 19% and 6% respectively. Accompanying ...
A new study found that obstructive sleep apnea, a common form of sleep-disordered breathing (SDB), is associated with increased rates of ADHD-like behavioral problems in children as well as other adaptive and learning problems. The five-year study, which appears in the April issue of the journal SLEEP, utilized data from a longitudinal cohort, the Tucson Childrens Assessment of Sleep Apnea Study (TuCASA).
The relationship between good vision and learning cannot be over estimated. If visual problems are left uncorrected they can contribute to problems at school. People with specific learning difficulties have difficulties in certain academic areas, yet can do well in other subjects.. All children should have their eyes examined by the age of five and have regular checkups, usually every two years. If parents are worried about their childs progress in school or feel that their child is under achieving, they should certainly have a specific learning difficulties assessment.. Research shows that up to 20% of people could improve their reading fluency through the use of colour. 1 in 10 people have dyslexia. Approximately 1 in 3 people with dyslexia experience visual stress and although the filters can help some, it does not help all and it is not a cure.. ...
How often do you see two famous people with learning disabilities (LDs) in the same movie? Well, probably more often than you think. Since many people with LDs are creative and unconventional, its common for them to become movie stars, entrepreneurs, or athletes. Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley, for example, who both appeared in Pirates of the Caribbean Dead Mans Chest, both have learning disabilities. But the road to success is rarely easy, and an LD adds another dimension that can be a struggle. Keira Knightley describes her journey through school saying: I was called stupid a lot by many lovely kids at school and that makes you pretty determined to learn to read and write and figure out ways around it, so I did. Orlando Bloom has used his own experience to advocate for children with dyslexia: If you have kids who are struggling with dyslexia, the greatest gift you can give them is the sense that nothing is unattainable. With dyslexia comes a very great gift, which is the way that your ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Temporal abnormalities in children with developmental dyscalculia. AU - Rappo, Gaetano. AU - Pepi, Annamaria. AU - Vicario, Carmelo Mario. AU - Martino, Davide. AU - Pavan, Andrea. PY - 2012. Y1 - 2012. N2 - Recent imaging studies have associated Developmental dyscalculia (DD) to structural and functional alterations corresponding Parietal and the Prefrontal cortex (PFC). Since these areas were shown also to be involved in timing abilities, we hypothesized that time processing is abnormal in DD. We compared time processing abilities between 10 children with pure DD (8 years old) and 11 age-matched healthy children. Results show that the DD group underestimated duration of a sub-second scale when asked to perform a time comparison task. The timing abnormality observed in our DD participants is consistent with evidence of a shared fronto-parietal neural network for representing time and quantity.. AB - Recent imaging studies have associated Developmental dyscalculia (DD) to ...
Thanks to advances in imaging techniques and scientific inquiry, we now know much more about learning disabilities (LD), dyslexia, and the role of vision problems. The American Academy of Pediatrics, the Council on Children with Disabilities, and the American Academy of Ophthalmology published a joint statement that summarizes what is currently known about visual problems and dyslexia. The statement also covers what treatments are and are not recommended when diagnosing and treating vision problems, learning disabilities, and dyslexia.
People with learning disabilities are now enjoying a longer life expectancy than ever before as a result of enhanced medical and social interventions and improved quality of life. Some, particularly individuals with Downs syndrome, are susceptible to dementia at a significantly younger age than the average age of onset in the rest of the population. Currently, there is limited guidance on how to talk to people with learning disabilities about dementia and, until such information is shared, individuals cannot be positioned as an authority on their own condition. The new model presented here suggests a way of supporting staff and families to have enabling conversations about dementia that centre on the persons current situation, level of understanding and capacity.Read More: Keywords ...
The structure of the school is such that you need to be maintaining a certain GPA in order to take certain classes in certain areas… I would always have this one class that is perpetually a two, where I cant take other classes. If its a study skills issue and a time management issue, it makes a lot of sense and sort of overall makes a lot of sense. But for kids with learning disabilities, it doesnt matter how much time Ive put in on my math. Its going to be the same, said Brown.. According to Zhao, another aspect of Andovers culture that can be difficult for students with learning disabilities is the packed schedules that often become the norm for Andover students.. Zhao emphasizes that as a student with ADD it is better for her to focus and not try to do too many extracurricular activities. I used to do a lot more than I do now. And thats not really that great for people with ADD or at least for me as an ADD student, that wasnt the greatest path. I needed to find focus in my life, ...
What is the purpose of neuropsychological testing? Neuropsychological tests can be helpful to determine the reasons for changes in the following areas: cognitive functioning, behavior, day-to-day tasks at work/school and/or home, and self-care (e.g., money management, ability to make personal decisions). A variety of conditions typically warrant neuropsychological testing. Here are some examples: cognitive problems of unclear cause; dementia (e.g., Alzheimers); ADHD; learning disorders; traumatic brain injury and concussions; Movement disorders (e.g., Parkinsons); multiple sclerosis; stroke and cerebrovascular disease; brain tumor; infectious diseases (e.g., Lyme disease); metabolic illness or toxin exposure; learning disorders; psychiatric disorders; and alcohol and substance use disorders. What is a neuropsychological test? Neuropsychological testing is a scientifically-based way to use paper-and-pencil and computerized tasks to assess an individuals functioning in the following domains:
Accessible summary: 1) This study asked fathers of adults who have a learning disability about their experiences, what helps them and any worries they may have; 2) Fathers reported different experiences of being a father to an adult with a learning disability and talked about things that were helpful, such as their wives, grandparents, having information and hobbies; 3) Fathers were worried about the person who has a learning disability in the future; 4) Fathers can be important in supporting people who have a learning disability throughout their lives. Background: There is little research that specifically relates to fathers of adults with a learning disability despite the social expectation that fathers will provide a supportive role over the lifespan. Methods: Semi-structured interviews were carried out with seven fathers of adults with a learning disability to explore their roles, needs and concerns. Data were analysed using a framework associated with interpretative phenomenological ...

N2 - This study examined the prevalence of neurodevelopmental disorders among children receiving residential care in Japanese childrens homes (CHs). The data on 7854 children aged 18 years or younger were collected using a ques- tionnaire for psychotherapists worked at 174 CHs in all regions of Japan. That included items of diagnostic state and experience of maltreatment. The preva- lence of neurodevelopmental disorders was 24% in CHs. The most common type in CHs was intellectual disabilities (11.9%), and the next most was autism spectrum disorder (6.1%). Logistic regression models revealed the children with experience of maltreatment had high risk of autism spectrum disorder, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, and specific learning disorder. These findings implied differential pattern from previous studies ...
Dyscalculia, or mathematics learning disorders, is currently known to be heterogeneous (Wilson & Dehaene, 2007). While various profiles of dyscalculia coexist, a general and persistent hallmark of this math learning disability is the difficulty in memorizing arithmetic facts (Geary, Hoard & Hamson, 1999; Jordan & Montani, 1997; Slade & Russel, 1971). Arithmetic facts are simple arithmetic problems that are solved by direct retrieval from memory. Recently, De Visscher and Noël (2013) showed hypersensitivity-to-interference in memory in an adult suffering from a specific deficit of arithmetic facts storage. According to the authors, arithmetic facts share many features. The overlapping of these features between arithmetic facts may provoke interference. Consequently, learners who are hypersensitive-to-interference could have considerable difficulties in storing arithmetic facts. The present study aims at testing this new hypothesis on fourth-grade children who are

Although chronic stress has been reported to induce deleterious effects on hippocampal structure and function, the possible existence of individual differences in the vulnerability to develop stress-induced cognitive alterations was hypothesized. This study was designed to evaluate (i) whether individual variability in behavioural reactivity to novelty could be related to a differential vulnerability to show spatial learning deficits after chronic stress in young adult rats, and (ii) to what extent, could individual differences in stress-induced cognitive alterations be related to alterations in specific neurobiological substrates. Four month-old Wistar male rats were classified according to their locomotor reactivity to a novel environment, as either low (LR) or highly (HR) reactive, and then either submitted to psychosocial stress for 21-days (consisting of the daily cohabitation of each young adult rat with a new middle-aged rat) or left undisturbed. The results showed that psychosocial ...
For decades, lawmakers, parents, and educators have advocated for including students with learning disabilities (LD) and addressing their needs within the education system. However, LD-related challenges do not vanish with age; consequently, for college and university graduates with LD, the issue of inclusion begins again when they reach the job market, including when they want to become teachers. The success of inclusion relies on the society s readiness to change and to accept people with a variety of difficulties in all areas of life. This study focuses on school principals views regarding the hiring of teachers with LD. Apparently, although principals understand the variety of ways students with special needs should be included, they still struggle with the idea of including teachers with LD. ...
For some time I have been interested in the activities of the specific learning difficulties group at the Department for Education and Skills. Its remit is to look at the criteria for diagnostic evidence for learning difficulties when students apply for disabled student allowances (DSA).. At the moment dyslexia is the only disability where such heavy diagnostic evidence is required for the DSA process. People with other disabilities do not have to prove their disability and in my view having to do so means that the Government is guilty of less favourable treatment under the Disability and Discrimination Act.. I have written to the DfES and it has stated that local education authorities have a legal responsibility to ask for such proof and have quoted the Education (Student Support) Regulations 2002 amended in 2004 as evidence of right. I have looked at the said Statutory Instrument and can find no such evidence.. This document lays down eligibility criteria for grants and awards including ...

Learning disabilities constitute a diverse group of disorders in which children generally possess at least average intelligence and have problems processing information or generating output. Their etiologies are multifactorial and reflect genetic influences and dysfunction or brain systems. Reading disability, or dyslexia, is the most common learning disability. It is a receptive language-based learning disability that is characterized by difficulties with decoding, fluent word recognition, rapid automatic naming, and/or reading comprehension skills. These difficulties typically result from a deficit in the phonologic component of language that makes it difficult to use the alphabetic code to decode the written word. Early recognition and referral to qualified professionals for evidence-based evaluations and treatment are necessary to achieve the best possible outcome. Because dyslexia is a language based disorder, treatment should be directed at this etiology. Remedial programs should include ...
Dyslexia is a learning disorder characterized by difficulty reading. Also called specific reading disability, dyslexia is a common learning disability in children.

It is thought that through a combination of biochemical and biophysical stimuli, the uncommitted stem cells of the embryo will undergo differentiation into certain cell lineages. However the exact mechanism and signalling pathways are still unclear. Studies have shown that embryonic stem cells are more mechanosensitive than their differentiated counterparts. During embryonic development mesenchymal cells will form cellular structures known as 'condensations.' These cellular units will then develop into skeletal and other tissues, such as cartilage, tendon, ligament and muscle tissue. Osteoprogenitor cell condensations can aggregate, dissipate or condense depending on the signals present, however these still remain largely unknown. Depending on the different effects, the cellular condensations may differentiate into osteogenic or chondrocytic condensations. The positioning of the osteoprogenitor cell condensations determines the cell lineage before the signalling molecules can. This is due to ...
