It can be extremely difficult for people to see past their own situation in the first place, especially in irritating situations like heavy traffic or a busy grocery store. It’s much harder to realize that there are external circumstances in everyone’s lives, especially when they are not seen
Christopher becomes quite irritated when experiencing sensory stimulation whether it be physical touch, visual overload, or a hypersensitivity to sounds. Because Christopher is negatively affected by physical stimuli, it is difficult for him to develop relationships with his family when they want to connect with him, or people in society when they unintentionally touch him without being aware of his condition. Haddon shapes the reader’s understanding of Christopher by providing information about Christopher that would not be available if it were not coming directly from Christopher’s thoughts. Excessive visual and auditory stimulus also causes Christopher to enter a state of distress where he is unable to communicate effectively with those around him; thus, making it difficult for him to remain in highly stimulating, social environments such as the grocery store for even short periods of time. This has a negative effect on his ability to socialize or make relationships in unfamiliar
For middle stage dementia this is where people start to really take note of behavior and language changes. This stage is characterized by a worsening in the ability to not only follow stories but also regular conversations. They will often ask for a repeat of simple instructions, have problems using the right volume for certain settings, and will sometimes not understand expressions of those around them. It is in this stage when you start to notice the repetition of stories and questions. For most caregivers the repetition is what they notice and associate with
If one person is playing with a fidget spinner and gives it to someone else, that person who just received it got that person’s germs. If someone else gets that person’s fidget spinner who has already been passed to by two people, it just a big wild mess and people are going to get sick. Especially if someone is playing with a fidget spinner and already is sick. Overall, fidget spinners are dangerous and not safe for people to be playing
We have all met someone who has some weird name. It might be hard to pronounce or spelled weirdly. We can feel bad for the child because of their name being mispronounced by teachers or just regular people. Other children might pick on this kid just because they have a weird name. Children are very much affected mentally at their young ages.
Some children may have conditions such as Dyslexia, ADHD, Downs Syndrome or Autism, which will cause their communication to be different. They may find it hard to interpret what an adult is asking them to do or they may not be able to communicate what they want to say in a way for an adult to understand them. Hearing and Physical impairments will also have an effect on communication. Hearing impairments in a child or adult will create a barrier in communication where the listener will have to use a different form of communication such as sign language or using pictures and gestures. Physical impairments would include disabilities such as Cerebral Palsy or Spina Bifida in the child or adult.

People are always on a recovery journey and people are different places will react in different ways. Very often, if caught off guard a student will be unable to focus, participate, and may even have a severe reaction like a panic attack. This is not a way to facilitate learning. These reactions can all be avoided with a few simple words compiled together to make up a trigger warning (Manne, Why I Use Trigger
members of staff, is challenging as when an individual displays this kind of behaviour they can become unpredictable and can be very distressed and workers need to be aware of what their strategies of intervention are and how effective they will be, workers also need to be aware of non-verbal communication for example your body language, as towards a service user you may come across as intimidating and this could potentially worsen the situation. (Challenging Behaviour) (Alzheimers, n.d.) There are other examples of challenging behaviour different to the one’s I have previously described, for example, a child who is living in a residential unit and is eating inedible objects such as stones and clothing; this is also known as pica. This can be considered challenging behaviour because it can be extremely dangerous as it can do considerable damage to your digestive system and can be potentially life threatening as you aren’t eating edible, nutritious food which will enable you to have a fully healthy functional body which in effect will provide you to have a better quality of life. (Pica, n.d.) Sexual behaviour can be deemed challenging if it’s not consented and if one of the individuals doesn’t have the capacity to make these decisions or does not fully understand what they are doing. In this situation
Everybody seems to have a different opinion on whether or not there is a definitive human nature, and if it is possible for people to make important choices regarding their lives. Humans are very complex creatures, and it is often difficult to generalize to the entire population because we are so complex and different from one another. People have been trying to figure out others since humans first started to communicate, but humans are a living paradox because they are predictable yet unpredictable. On one hand, human beings are typically creatures of habit, but on the other hand, sometimes they will do something unexpected at the drop of a hat and surprise everybody. Humans as a whole have come along way in figuring others out, but yet there is so much that is not known about humans, because it is impossible to know what others are truly thinking.
This can lead to symptoms evolving “over time consistent with anatomical changes in the neural substrates following the injury and comorbid conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), depression, anxiety, and sleep disturbance (Department of Defense Deployment Health Clinical Center, n.d.)” (Traumatic Brain Injury in Adults, 2016.) It would be exceptionally frustrating for one to realize they aren’t able to perform the functions they once were able to. This could lead to an individual not finishing their degree, have a lesser feeling of self-worth leading to personal issues perhaps difficulty with developing relationships possibly leading to depression, and feasibly substance
It is difficult to understand Ruvy, for his words are not segmented properly and the main idea is not clearly expressed. In age appropriate activities like greeting others, expressive language, articulation, expressive/ receptive language and receptive language areas. This difficulty limits Ruvy in social development. As a cause of this frustration he will engage in weird behaviors such as making noises and mumbling to himself in front of a mirror. When involved in a small group activity that he can do, Ruvy enjoys it and is able to complete the task.
This constant state of poise takes away from productivity, when a person could be focusing instead and accomplishing more. In addition to stress, it has been discovered that, “...incoming information can change how people think and behave.These play to a primitive impulse to respond to immediate opportunities and threats. The stimulation provokes excitement — a dopamine squirt — that researchers say can be addictive. In its absence, people feel bored. The resulting distractions can have deadly consequences, as when cellphone-wielding drivers and train engineers cause wrecks...these urges can inflict nicks and cuts on creativity and deep thought, interrupting work and family life”, (Rechtel).
Violence in the home leads to multiple problems; inability to sleep, regress developmentally, irritability, fearfulness, aggressiveness, withdrawn, and even over attachment. Some children can show signs of early post-traumatic stress disorder (Baldino, 2009). Inability to sleep can be a major factor in keeping ones focus, often a tired brain is not a focused one. The lack of focus can add major struggles to everything
In this day, the nation is fighting many diseases, disabilities, and disorders. Among these are Asperger 's Syndrome, cancer, and Autism. Autism, caused by gene mutations, gives the individual low communication skills and makes it very hard for the child to acclimate to new situations and people despite the fact that most individuals are very smart. Autism can negatively affect family and social relationships and interactions due to the fact that individuals have very low communication skills making them hard to discipline and opening them to cruel comments and bullying. Autism is caused by an abnormality in early brain development which often restricts basic learning skills.
