In October 2019 Fetzer was ordered to pay $ 450,000 in damages to Lenny Pozner but announced that he would appeal.According to several sources, Lanza was presented as a "deeply disturbed" child who allegedly suffered from Asperger's syndrome or another of the autism spectrum disorders.After the publication of Adam Lanza's profile, and in anticipation of potential reactions and confusions with other psychological conditions, autism advocates campaigned to clarify that autism is a neurodevelopmental disorder, not a mental illness.Several other relatives of victims, who for years had adopted a low profile in the face of their stalkers, have resolved to join the actions taken by Lenny Pozner and join in the complaints he has filed, including...

Mark Haddon’s beautifully written and in-depth novel shows the ups and downs of being autistic, as well as a combination.These advantages and disadvantages can also cross paths occasionally, when what some would call an advanced ability turns out to have a negative impact, as well as a “disability” being rewarding.Haddon successfully shows how being autistic is both giving and taking in daily life, by dictating the life of the very diverse, Christopher John Francis Boone.Christopher is a very awkward person, who at the same time is somewhat of a virtuoso when it comes to numbers and math.On page 81, Christopher is being ream... ... middle of paper ... ...ould still have been the nicest friends Christopher would ever have, since she is so...

While one can be sensibly patient and understanding to children with autism because they have mental deficiencies, an ordinary teacher without proper training and experience can easily be frustrated, irritated or agitated in a class of emotionally disturbed children because one thinks that they are normal and are consciously and voluntarily performing antisocial or irregular behaviors like defiance, aggression, passivity and even tantrums.Class of Children with Autism .Because most children with autism have a pervasive impairment in communication and social interaction, basic communication alone is very challenging and takes a lot of perseverance and withiness.(Adelman and Taylor, 2005) .for play and social interaction) to promote its u...

This in turn can enable, after future research and planning, the possibility for more children to be included in mainstream schools and teachers being more positive about them being there.Several studies examined the effect of programs preparing typically developing pupils for the inclusion of pupils with autism.Lord and Hopkins (1986) taught typically developing pupils that they could interact with pupils with autism and noted that the interactions with these pupils who had undergone preparation and practice were of higher quality (eye contact, response etc.)which would add to their qualifications.Many assume SEN usually refers to students with autism, BESD (behavioural, emotional and social difficulty), visual or hearing impairments.

By providing centres that help teach people with mental illnesses basic life skills and how to act in ociety, it is getting easier for them to live their lives without constant scrutiny for the people around them.The media has contributed greatly towards providing knowledge to the public about mental illnesses such as depression, autism, and bipolar disorder.With the incapability to be aware of the needs and feelings of others, people with autism may act in a way or do something that may offend others without realizing the consequences.With socialization, which is a result of closing down mental institutions, eliminating meaningless roles, and educating society, the views of the public have changed for the better because the increase of ...

Research of autism has revealed that the major contributing factor to the etiology of such disorder is the impairment of OXT-AVP balance (Harony et al, 2010).The variations of OXTR and AVPR in males and females, (Francis et al, 2002), gender-specific roles of brain functions (Insel et al, 2000), gender differences in amygdala reactivity to intranasal OXT (Domes et al,2010) support the hypothesis of gender-dependent activity of the neuropeptides.Indeed, recent evidence suggests that the application of intranasal OXT may facilitate prosocial effects in high-functioning autism (Herbrecht et al, 2010).This can be seen in autistic patients where OXTR is greatly reduced, which then undermine OXT activity (Hollander et al., 2003).The imbalance ...

It requires schools to be responsive to the needs of individual children by teachers and also provide support to staff that should have ideally some sufficient background and training in identifying the different aspects of autism and how to respond to given situations.Having teachers that are aware and are able to integrate the children with autism has a huge bearing on whether the children are able to settle themselves amongst their peers.The symptoms of autism are such that it has great effects on how children with autism learn.In conclusion the argument that autism poses within an educational setting will be inevitably different for every child.Another set of results concentrated on the particular traits of Autism and how it was reac...

A college-synagogue has existed since 2009 to welcome and educate free of charge any person with Asperger's disease between the ages of 18 and 26.This upsets the definition of autism, since people with and without mental retardation (even gifted) now fall into the same “autism spectrum”.The exact causes of Asperger's autism remain unknown, as evidenced by the report of the committee of the scientific journal Nature, The Autism Enigma (2011): “Despite the progress made, efforts to elucidate how genes and the environment influence the development of autism are still far from reaching their goal ”.There are many commonalities between so-called “severe” autism and Asperger's syndrome, which are considered to be on the two extremes of the aut...
