Confirming It’s ADHD

On the web there is a site completely dedicated to Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.

This site has a video series available under FAQS (Frequently Asked Questions) which addresses various topics all of which are about ADHD. This video series, committed to the topic of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, was written and narrated by a professional clinician experienced in treating ADHD patients. Appearing to be highly knowledgeable on this topic, his approach is quite professional. This video series is presented by MegaTech, Inc. which is the maker of the ADHD technological, treatment game, Cups and Balls.

                This is the eighth video in the series and is entitled, Differential Diagnosis. After watching the video, I came to the conclusion that it is about confirming a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. I was impressed with the professionalism of the concept presented. The narrator, a professional in the field of ADHD himself, has apparently observed instances in which a diagnosis of ADHD was erroneously made. He explains in this video, that there are many conditions that share some of the same behavioral characteristics with ADHD. Confirming that a person has been given the correct diagnosis is crucial before beginning a treatment process. After watching this video it was clear to me  that the process of confirming a diagnosis is referred to in professional circles as Differential Diagnosis.

                The narrator states that ADHD has similar characteristics as the disorders of Anxiety, and Mania.  All three conditions have similar high energy behavioral patterns.  He goes on to explain the difference between Anxiety and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder by informing the viewer that while they are both high energy disorders, Anxiety causes compulsive, agitated movement due to worry about a particular, troubling circumstance. The high energy, unfocused activity displayed by ADHD is instead, caused by random distractions. He then explains the difference in behaviors between ADHD and Manic Behaviors. Mania and ADHD share some of the same characteristics but there is less impulsiveness with Mania. Manic activity seems to be more associated with a sense of Grandiosity, almost delusional.  There is a complete inability by a person with the disorder of Mania to perceive potential consequences for his actions as if nothing can touch him. Behaviors are not simply impulsive but further complicated by unrealistic Grandiosity that may come across as arrogance, but isn’t because the person with the delusional Grandiosity, actually believes his delusion.  This detailed information about diagnosing ADHD can be found on the web site, http://www.attentiondeficitdisordergame.com/

]]>

 Treatment for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Anxiety, as well as Mania is radically different from each other. Treatment based on a wrong diagnosis, could cause the abnormal behaviors to actually worsen rather than improve the patient’s condition.  The narrator proceeds to illustrate that a stimulant is given as medication for ADHD. However, a stimulant given to someone who is Manic, would actually aggravate the condition and could even cause the patient to become psychotic.  Reversely, giving an anti-anxiety medication to someone with ADHD, would likely be counterproductive. It lowers the inhibitions of the person with ADHD and they actually become more impulsive and dysfunctional.

                The professional clinician continues by listing more disorders which share characteristics with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Bi-Polar Disorder, Conduct Disorder, Oppositional Defiant Disorder, as well as some learning disabilities and Cognitive disorders.  Some others he mentions are the thought disorders:  Schizophrenia, Dyslexia, as well as Asperger Syndrome. These all share some of the same characteristics of ADHD and should be looked at closely.

 I was once again aware while watching this video as I was in the previous videos, that there were terms used specific to the study of mental illness. I had a general idea as to the meaning of some of them and some I looked up in my dictionary. I actually looked up one term, Asperger Syndrome, in an old medical dictionary of mine but it was not listed. So I called the reference department of the main library in my town and asked about it.  Their medical dictionary, The Dorland Medical Dictionary stated that Asperger syndrome was a form of autism. I requested a definition for autism and the definition given was that it affected the brain. Thinking that this definition was way too general, I then researched definitions for Asperger Syndrome and autism on the Internet. Asperger syndrome – related to autism is mainly characterized by impaired social interaction behavior, while autism has the additional symptoms of repetitive speech and very narrow range of interests, such as door knobs.

                The next point that the narrator made he stressed as very important. Be absolutely certain that there is a thorough, accurate diagnosis and be convinced that the clinician is not prematurely concluding that the condition he is diagnosing is ADHD.  Allowing the process of diagnosis to take the time that’s needed for an accurate conclusion is very important. Psychiatric diagnosis is a complicated task and should not be taken lightly or rushed. 

Caution should be used when finding a professional to diagnose and assess your child, family member or loved one. It is important to find an experienced clinician who has worked with ADHD.  On the other hand, if the professional works only with ADHD, he may tend to see only ADHD behaviors when the behavioral characteristics may actually be attributed or associated with something different.  Clinicians who work only with ADHD, sometimes tend to be less objective, and only see through the lens of their ADHD thinking.  Psychiatry, thought behavior, and behavioral disorders all share similar features.  It’s important to make an accurate diagnosis so that the treatment plan can be fitting for the person and not actually counterproductive.  To arrive at an accurate diagnosis, the clinician needs to take the time needed to learn about all the known events in the patient’s history, so that a thorough and accurate diagnosis can be made.

                In the remaining videos of this series which can be found at the web site, http://www.attentiondeficitdisordergame.com/the topics addressed are focusing on other co-existing conditions that are associated with ADHD, as well as  technological, therapeutic treatment games for ADHD and the benefits of the treatment game, Cups and Balls to people with ADHD.

                This particular video is especially helpful to those who are involved in the process of diagnosis for a child, family member, or loved one.

Five Types of Autism

There is more than one type of autism. Even though most people in society know only the umbrella terminology for the disability, it should be known that there are all types of autism, in fact that various degrees are a part of a spectrum. No one individual experiences autism in the same exact way. It is time society started acting like that. An individual is not only autistic because they have a learning disability. An individual should be looked at from a much deeper standpoint. Here’s a brief look at autism underneath the surface.

Asperger Syndrome

Asperger Syndrome is one of the few ASDs (autistic spectrum disorders) and is diagnosed by the absence of significant socialized tendencies. These characteristics include finding difficulty in social interaction and the limited and monotonous patterns of an individual’s behavior and what happens to keep their interests. Other symptoms can include clumsiness and abnormal use of jargon. Asperger differs from other ASDs because it seeks to preserve lingual and the development of cognitive capabilities. There is no known cause for the disorder and no treatment to cure the disorder.

]]>

Kanner’s Syndrome

Kanner Syndrome, otherwise known as autism, is autism in its classic form. It is defined as a neural developmental disorder and is characterized by weakened communication and social interaction and the limitation and repetitiveness of behavior. Autism is usually diagnosed by the time the child hits the age of 3. It affects information the brain processes by changing the way nerve cells and synapses are allotted to connect and be organized. Just like Asperger Syndrome, Kanner Syndrome is one of the few ASDs.

PDD-NOS

The acronym PDD-NOS stands for Pervasive Developmental Disorder – Not Otherwise Specified and is defined as a pervasive developmental disorder and the disorder that completes the group of ASDs. With the diagnosis of PDD-NOS, an individual can qualify for some of the characteristics found in autism and Asperberger, but because they do not fit all of the criterion for the disorders, they become diagnosed with PDD-NOS. It is commonly referred to as atypical autism because although it is autism, it is very hard for it to fall in the category of autism.

Rett’s Syndrome

Rett syndrome is a developmental disorder of the neurological system that affects a major component of the central nervous system, known as “grey matter”. This is generally characterized by the outward appearance of small feet, hands, and a decrease in the rate at which an individual’s head is supposed to go. Hand movements are repetitive. Scoliosis, constipation, and the failure to grow are also common problems with Rett. It is very rare, but when it does happen, it usually only affects girls.

Childhood Disintegrative Disorder

Similar to Rett Syndrome, Childhood Disintegrative Disorder is also rare. Children who have it typically appear to be normal at birth, growth occurs when it is supposed to occur, no signs of anything potentially problematic. However, at age two or four, things take a shift. Instead of progressing, the child seems to regress. They will have no desire to interact with kids and have no interest in playing. Talking will either end completely or decrease in skill from what it previously had been.

 

If you have learning disabilities, consider changing your learning techniques by using NLP methodology.

Download Adam (2009) for FREE – Download Movies for FREE

In the movie, Adam is portrayed as having Aspergers Syndrome. He is college educated and is self aware of his challenges. Many people associate autism with savant gifts, such as counting cards (as in Rain Man). This is more atypical than most people know, but in the movie Adam’s gift is that of astronomy.

My personal opinion about the accuracy of the film has to do with the diagnosis of Aspergers Syndrome as related to other levels and spectrums of the autism scale. Adam slaps himself in the face, has anxiety attacks, demonstrated destructive tendencies, and even hit his head in a mirror. I would suggest that these behaviors are slightly downscale from a conventional Aspergers Syndrome diagnosis.

Now, in all fairness, the discussion and parameters associated with different levels of autism are still vague and ambiguous. Also, in all fairness to the movie itself, Adam had recently lost his father resulting in him being left alone, fired from his job, had a fight with his girl, man-handled by the police, and was overall extremely stressed from situations that infrequently occur; especially all at once. Most autistic people have developed complex coping mechanisms. Stress can shed those coping layers back to reveal a less capable and more vulnerable autistic person.

]]>

I am grateful that the movie sheds more light on the world of the autism. The years between the institutionalized Rain Man and this independent living Adam have hopefully removed and/or at least changed the perception/stereotype of the high functioning atypical autistic person.

Autism What is it

So Autism what is it?….

Autism is a developmental disability of the brain; autism is not a form of mental retardation.

The word autism can refer to several similar disabilities, like Autistic Disorder, Aspergers Syndrome, also Atypical Autism (a type of Pervasive Developmental Disorder, not otherwise specified) etc.. There are differences between these conditions, but on the whole they are quite similar.

The word ‘spectrum’ is used because, while all people with autism share three main areas of difficulty, their condition will affect them in very different ways. Some are able to live relatively ‘everyday’ lives; others will require a lifetime of specialist support.

There are three main areas of difficulty which all people with autism share these are referred to as the ‘triad of impairments’. They are:

“Difficulties with communication”;  “Difficulties with social interaction”;   “Difficulties with imagination”. Some autistic people may be affected more by one symptom, while others may be affected more strongly by a different symptom.

People with autism may experience some form of sensory sensitivity. This can occur in one or more of the five senses – sight, sound, smell, touch and taste. A person’s senses are either intensified (hypersensitive) or under-sensitive (hypo-sensitive).

For example, a person with autism may find certain background sounds, like the hum of a fridge for example unbearably loud or distracting, while the rest of us can ignore or block out the noise. To an autistic person the noise can cause anxiety or even physical pain, this can be referred to as an autism anxiety trigger.

]]>

People who are hypo-sensitive will often not feel pain or extremes of temperature. Some may rock, spin or flap their hands to stimulate sensation, this is called autistic stimming. An autistic person will use stimming to help with balance and posture or to deal with stress, another autism anxiety trigger

People with sensory sensitivity may also find it harder to use their body awareness system. Which tells us where our bodies are, so for those with reduced body awareness, it can be harder to navigate rooms without walking into objects or bumping into others. They will not appreciate what is an appropriate distance from other people to stand.

This can cause social problems, as the person will be unaware of the need for personal space and may stand very close, making people feel very uncomfortable.

They may also have problems with ‘fine motor’ tasks such as tying shoelaces, or fastening buttons…

Sometime autistic people may have learning disabilities, which can affect all aspects of their life, from going to school, to learning how to wash themselves, clean their teeth, Or how to feed themselves.

The symptoms of autism will vary from person to person each autistic person will have a different degree of learning disability.

Some autistic people will be able to live fairly independently, but may need some support.

While others may require lifelong, specialist support. However, all people with autism can, and do, learn and develop with the right sort of support and resources.

One such form of autism resources is something called autism social stories…These are short pieces of text with appropriate pictures-giving your autistic child, teen or adult specific social cues for everyday living skills.

Like how to wash their teeth, visiting the doctor, eating out. Social skills stories for autistic children and teens, or adults can be printed and used as instructions for all of life’s “normal” and “not so normal” life experiences and actions.

They can be like a best friend to an autistic person helping them feel better in, and cope with, situations they may struggle to understand or deal with – by giving them clear and accurate information about those situations.

Autism social stories are an excellent resource tool which can become a valuable part of an autistic person’s life.

A Brief Guide to School Autism Training

What is school Autism training? It is the approach that a school of any kind will use to educate its teaching staff, classroom support staff, and even its administration about the best approaches to educating students with ASD.

ASD is short for Autism Spectrum Disorders and it can mean a lot of different things. For example, there is not just one type of Autism, and a student might experience a single set of symptoms that the teacher and classroom staff will need to identify and work with. Consider that a student might have Asperger Syndrom or ìclassicî Autism, and could display only the mildest symptoms or even the most severe ones. The mandates around inclusiveness mean that the school is going to be responsible for ensuring that the student gets the best level of education possible ñ regardless of the level of ASD they have.

So, when school Autism training is made available, it makes it much easier for teachers and classroom staff to find the right course of action for the individual student. Unfortunately, there is no established cure or single treatment that is known to work with any specific Autism symptom, so the school Autism training is usually going to have to be somewhat broad and expansive.

]]>

Fortunately, there is an approved method or science for handling students with the symptoms of ASD, and this is known as ABA or Applied Behavior Analysis. This is a branch of science that analyzes human behavior and then applies proven techniques to bring about necessary and positive changes. When it is incorporated into school Autism training, it gives the teaching and classroom staff the skills necessary to create the kind of positive reinforcement that is so essential to helping students overcome their challenges to learning or socialization.

Consider that most modern teachers learn how to practice their trade through an educational background that encourages a somewhat rigid set of approaches. For instance, teachers may focus on structured instructional methods that tend to include things like classroom work, individual work at their desk or table, and some hands-on techniques. A student with ASD may not be able to learn or pick up information through this proven method, but adequate training will help the teacher to identify the appropaite alternative approaches for the individual student. This might include utilizing incidental methods, and then applying them to the standard structured teaching tactics.

Teachers cannot be expected to be ìall knowingî and good Autism training will help them to guide all of their students towards personal and academic success.

Asperger Syndrome Between Male and Female

There’s fallacy stating that females don’t get Aspergers. The truth is that both the male and female can possibly have Asperger Syndrome.

As we all know, Asperger Syndrome has an effect on individual’s behavior, personality and the way they interact with other people. According to research, the males are most likely to have Asperger Syndrome compared to females. Unfortunately, both male and female tend to be poor in social skills. For instance, it’s difficult for them to start friendship with peers; they have low communication skills, motor skills and tend to have behavioral problems.

At their young age, females with Asperger syndrome are fond of fantasizing fairy tales like princesses, magic kingdoms and magical worlds. They brought their interests in dolls and imaginary friends. They may be kind of rigid or firm when it comes to their daily routines like arranging their toys in a certain ways in the shelf, read a book couple of times and eat the same meal every day. It’s sort of a repetitive way.

Socially speaking, female kids have the greater craving to connect with other children and make friends compare to boys with Asperger Syndrome. Some experts speculate that fewer girls are diagnosed because they can make a friend and these friends can help them to cope with their symptoms.

]]>

In terms of communication, they are less talkative than normal girls. They are shy in interacting with others because of their poor communication and language skills. When in a conversation, they feel uncomfortable and appear extremely shy and aloof. They always tend to mimic other children who have good social skills. They like to follow the mannerisms or body language, facial expressions and tone of the voice just to fit in.

Males with Asperger Syndrome pours out their anger and frustrations by aggression and physical violence. But compare to females with Aspergers, they are passive and less violence. They keep their emotions and feelings to themselves. These females are more motivated to learn rather than males. Some of them even excel in their choice of interest, like in science and math.

As they turn to puberty stage, the symptoms of Aspergers in teens are more obvious like their obsessions in dolls and imaginary friends. The most difficult endeavor they encounter is giving focus on details or instructions, as well as on the things that they are not interested of.

The most challenging years as they become older, is to be in a relationship and marriage stage. Women with Asperger Syndrome struggle and find it difficult to be in an intimate relationship for the reason that they have a hard time to show their emotions of love and care. Due to this, feeling of loneliness and isolation on their part and their partner is possible. They will still follow some routines and rituals like pacing and stomping when they feel upset and may feel anxious in a change of their routines. Some women with Asperger Syndrome had the chance to get married but they have difficulty in giving emotional support to their husband and act their responsibilities to their children.

The above statements were based on research and studies. Women are mostly believed to be strong willed, as well as to men. Nevertheless, emotional support from family and friends is much needed to those men and women with Asperger Syndrome.
