In one way, Charlie and Steph Zech are alike. Although Charlie has complete learning disabilities and Steph has a specific disability, they share struggles. They both struggle over learning subjects, need extended help, and have to live with it. The article explains how scientists are working to cure and improve dyscalculia, much like how researchers worked on Charlie. The article does not really support the idea that an operation such as what Charlie had done to him is possible but, it does tell of tests and games, much like Charlie’s races with Algernon, to help improve the mind’s mathematical sense.

In addition, this is definitely not the case for every situation, but the way of thinking when it comes to standardized test scores often deal with the level of knowledge one might posses. By now you have probably seen my test scores, which are pretty low. However, my test scores do not define how knowledgable I am. Instead, these tests highlight how unsuccessful I am when taking timed tests. For me, when I am in an ACT or SAT testing session, my mind is running wild with formulas and strategies that I may use, yet I still
He doesn 't like to interact with normal people, he can´t identify when someone is speaking sarcastically or if they are making a joke. He finds talking with people pointless. The best way to describe him is like an outsider to society. Even though, he has social problems, his work with numbers is impressive. Christopher finds math amusing, entertaining and simple.
He lacks the emotion that a normal person might have. When Spade feels challenged, his facial expressions seem to give away nothing. The people around him, be they Effie, Iva, or even Brigid, never have a clear understanding of what he’s thinking.

Individuals who have dissociative amnesia cannot remember important information that is usually of a personal nature. This amnesia is usually stress related (Morrison, 2014, p. 235).

This painful not about physical, but it is about human. By that time no one can save human, because only human feel that painful, other creatures cannot. As Wallace claims, “Since pain is a totally subjective mental experience, we do not have direct access to anyone or anything’s pain but our own”(505) Moral problem is human’s thing. It becomes better or worse totally depend on human. The moral problem will more and more evident in the future.
Regardless, they were in a state of mind in which they had no control over their actions, they didn’t comprehend what they were doing or they were unable to interpret that what they were doing was wrong, or illegal. Automatism is a very particular defense and hard to prove in trial, it’s also similar to the insanity defense which means some courts don’t recognize it as a separate
Many forms of autism would not qualify to reproduce. Such as Kanner 's. This is a lower functioning type of autism disorder characterized by severe communication and socialization problems. People with this disease are distant and hard to reach, they can also be rather clumsy due to their lack of motor skills and are prone to repetitive motions and actions. Many of the disabled have bad tempers when slight changes are made to their everyday routines, some of the people with Kanner’s do not speak.
