Whole genome sequences show every gene and chromosome contained within the fetus. This will allow parents to see everything that makes up the DNA of the child and even with the possibility of ¨what will happen during the teenage and adult years¨ (Shurkin 1). Every parent has the idea of their dream child, what happens when whole genome sequencing shows that their future baby is not what they expect? As one article written by Joel Shurkin suggests that prenatal genetic test results might lead to parents raising their child differently, genetic manipulation, or even abortion if they are not pleased with the results. These options are rather common, with the rate of abortion ¨around 85% for Down Syndrome¨ (Press 74).
They will need extra support in daily activities. Such illness also have different facial characteristics which can lead to bullying. When condition involves frequent absence from school due to hospital visits, children could miss school lesson, make it harder to learn the required material and fall behind in academic development. Some children
1.2 What are the typical impacts of these on children and young people? Majority of the disable people may lead to experience the adulthood transition differently towards the non-disabled peers. It is true that with possible restriction imposed on their routine schedule; especially the ones that are disabled in childhood might be more insulated from peer effects and less towards getting engage in risky actions (Kirk, 2008).
In this case, it may be hard for them to speak to communicate what they are trying to say. They may also have trouble using their gross and fine motor skills which could prevent a child from producing school work to a similar level of a child without any physical
They may have lost their memory which could mean they may not recognise family, or be serverly depressed and struggle with daily life activities. • Physical disability • Learning difficulty/disability- Some examples could be people not being able to walk and eat solid foods which could affect their emotional state and mental state of mind. • Emotional
In ADHD and me by Blake Taylor gives insight into how struggling with ADHD affects an individual 's life. Not only does ADHD affect the inhabitant but it affects those around them, such as their family, friends, or teachers/co workers. Some may think kids diagnosed with the disorder just seek to be disruptively freely, or not pay attention and be excused for it, however ADHD makes focusing harder for the youth in school, and complicates their social connections. Teachers may punish the child for disorderly conduct when in reality the child is trying to pay attention. When in a classroom setting, if a child shows any signs of complications with their condition they may be subject to bullying or be ostracized from the group.
MY PRIVATE BATTLE Living with chronic illness and pain is something that isn’t easily understood by people who are not going through the same thing. Moreover, the effects of illness are an emotional and personal daily battle. All of us with Fibromyalgia are not the same!! Not one of us has the exact same symptoms. We have a lot of the same, some are worse, some are less, but no two are exactly alike!
Most people avoid thinking of the idea of having one of their future children born with a genetic disorder. But this is not a realistic thought. A study made by the National Down Syndrome Society (2014) found out that about one in every seven hundred babies in the United States is born with Down syndrome, a chromosomal disorder caused by an error during the cell division. This results in an extra copy of the chromosome 21 which alters the brain and body development. People with Down syndrome are born with intellectual disability, some characteristic facial features and cognitive delays. It has been demonstrated that the possibility of a child being born with Down syndrome increases as the age of the mother increases, and clearly women have delayed their maternity especially
For example, Source 2 talks about how tests can be used for improvement and encouraging nudges. They also mention that one can conquer testing anxiety. This is not accurate. Testing anxiety does not just wash away if you keep drilling tests into a kid’s brain. I also don’t understand how it can improve one’s skills.
This concept mainly appears in children who suffer from a preexisting disability. In this sense, children who have ADHD are not able to receive the necessary treatment they need. Without that treatment, whether it be medication, therapy, etc. they will not be able to perform in school and other activities in the way that people without ADHD can. In order to be able to make an assumption about the preceding arguments, it is important to focus on the negatives of both over diagnosing and underdiagnosing ADHD.
OGO3 meron Dementia Dementia is a mental disease where you lose some maybe all of your memory for a long period of time or even eternity rly symptoms can occur for some people and can include behaviour swings and anxiety or even blindness. There are many different types of dementia and some of them include the mo common Alzheimers Disease which takes up 70% of all the people that have dementia, vascular dementia, Frontotemporal dementia, Lewy body dementi a and many more, these often occur over the age of 60 but it is possible to also get it if you are young. 90% of people with Parkinson 's disease will get the exact same symptoms as people with dementia would get It 's possible to get more than one form of dementia. Alzheimers disease Alzheimer 's disease i
Many children have been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD), and the amount of those children being prescribed a medication for their disorder has grown largely in the last couple of years. This caused concern to arise in doctors; some of them went as far to say that most children diagnosed and treated for ADHD are really just immature and undisciplined (Koplewicz). Even if this is untrue, they say that the children would do better if treated with alternative options. Children diagnosed with ADHD are in serious distress, but not because of bad teaching or parenting. It is because their brains work differently than others, and they need to be treated properly. Doctors should continue to treat ADHD with medications such as amphetamines and methylphenidate. One reason for this is that stimulants and medications are more successful in controlling the symptoms of ADHD than any alternative methods; also, no serious side effects have been reported by someone using these medications. Lastly, misdiagnosis will likely not occur in the care of a well trained pediatrician.
Alzheimer 's is a brain disorder that affects more than 5.3 million people in the United States. The elderly are mainly affected by loss of memory. Scientists have not yet found a cure for this disease which is destroying minds. The government has been helping with a plan giving $600 million a year. Their goal is to prevent or treat the disease by 2025. In coming decades, Scientists predict the number of people will rise to 13.8 million. The aging population is increasing because of low birth rates and increased life expectancy. As America 's population ages, there will be other health issues emerging. The most common health concerns for seniors are diabetes, arthritis, heart disease, and cancer. All of these conditions are the leading cause of death.
Intro-hook: Imagine your loved one unexpectedly commits suicide. Your mother, your father, your sister, or your brother. A mental illness such as depression can lead to someone taking their life. The scariest part is that whole time you didn't realize they had those thoughts. But the problem is this happens every 40 seconds around the world and we don't realize it. These problems could be avoided if we learned how to take action in this type of situation.
