These challenges a special child faces are usually doubled. On one hand, they struggle with the symptoms and disabilities that result from the disease. On the other, they are challenged by the stereotypes and prejudice that result from misconceptions about special child.

Laboratory testing for known causes of brain calcifications came back negative; thus the patient was diagnosed with Fahr’s disease, a condition that was diagnosed in her younger sibling two years previously. As there is no cure for the condition, the patient received physiotherapy, speech and language therapy, and her diabetic control was optimised prior to discharge from hospital; she made mild improvement in her symptoms. Fahr’s disease is a condition characterised by an idiopathic bilateral basal ganglia calcification. It is a rare disease with prevelance believed to be less than one in a million; most often an autosomal dominant in nature. It can
Learning disabled people have this problem because they face great difficulty in listening, speaking, reading, writing and mathematical intelligence. Learning difficulties can be caused by internal factors like inherent, physical, medical and neurological and external factors like family, society, opportunities and experiences. Internal factors are intrinsic to the individual and can cause a person to learn differently. They are usually life-long, and are usually considered a learning disability. Dyslexia is usually considered to be a learning disability, or a particular learning difficulty.
• The technology of designer babies is bliss for the couples who are unable to have children because they do not their genetic disease which they have. Through the process of pre implantation genetic diagnosis the embryos are scanned for genetic diseases and if found that it has inherited genetic disease the genetic makeup of the baby is changed so that the child could be born disease free. PGD can screen for about a dozen of the most serious genetic diseases including: cystic fibrosis, Tay Sachs, various familial cancers, early onset Alzheimer’s, sickle cell disease, haemophilia, neurofibromatosis, muscular dystrophy, and Franconia’s anaemia. With further testing of the human genome it is said that nearly all of the genetic diseases could

Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004) . ASDs vary substantially in the severity and nature of symptoms but are defined by persistent deficits in social communication and social interaction as well as the presence of restricted, repetitive patterns of behavior(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004).Other than that, signs of autism include difficulty talking about personal feelings or understanding the feelings of others, disinclination to share or engage in reciprocal play with others, lack of eye contact and joint attention behavior, difficulty communicating or using language, and sensitivity to physical contact(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Besides that, early intervention is critical for a positive long-term outcome, and many individuals need high levels of support throughout their lives such as treatments include applied behavior analysis in which positive and negative behaviors are encouraged and discouraged to improve social and communicative skills(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Other approaches is focus on utilizing nonhuman partners to facilitate human-human social interaction, for instance, through pet-assisted therapy(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc, 2004). Although computer-assisted therapy and virtual reality approaches have shown some success which is has been limited investigation of the parameters of the facilitative interactions and of the conditions necessary to generalize the benefits to interactions with human partners(Tina R. Goldsmith & Linda A. LeBlanc,
Niolon (2010) shows that avoidant children may become anxious, clinging and angry with their parents. Typically, they come from their parents who has an insecure attachment type with their family. Insecure attachment can also result from emotional abuse. This is when the attachment figure becomes the source of fear instead of being the source of comfort. Emotional abuse is when the parent diminished the children’s needs and feelings.
Symptoms Some of the common symptoms of Shaken Baby Syndrome include fussiness or irritability, breathing problems, and pale or bluish skin. The baby may also start vomiting or refuse to eat. In some cases, the baby may have seizures, have difficulty staying awake, or experience paralysis. A baby who has fallen into a coma may have Shaken Baby Syndrome and needs medical attention right away. While some babies who have Shaken Baby Syndrome will show other symptoms of physical abuse, such as bruises, bleeding, or broken bones, sometimes you will not see physical symptoms of the injury.
Learning differences are neurological differences in processing information. These can significantly limit our ability to learn specific information. Thus, these disorders are the result of actual differences in the way the brain uses information which it is given. Everyone has differences in learning ability, but people who have significant learning differences may have these problems throughout their lives. Children with learning disabilities often have executive functioning disorders as well.
Some children show high distress, for example when they are separated from their parents, darkness, animals or strangers. These anxieties are short-lived and they may disappear by the time. However, some children suffer from high level of anxiety extreme enough to interfere with the daily activities of children or adolescents. This is especially true to school age children. Students may face some challenges in the school environment, such as concern about grades, coping with new school, coping with peers and building an intimate relationship with teachers.
