Percentage Of Asperger Children With Extremely High Iq
Unknown?: As far as i know there have been no definitive studies on this subject in this country. There have been some studies done on this in england(and you could look them up) but nothing concrete. My take on this subject is that the higher the level of functioning the individual has the more things/experiences they will have in his/her life. Try to be supportive and a resource/sounding board. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
It's common: While i don't have a specific percentage, it's pretty common, and most of the kids i see have a sleep disorder of some sort. Sometimes it's difficulty getting to sleep, staying asleep, winding down, or having a correct day/night cycle. There are medications that can help, but consult with your pediatrician and / or a sleep expert to get a specific regimen. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Theory: The popular theory is that people who have high iq's have a more accurate perception of the world and therefore see that the world as a depressing place. This does not mean that you have to be depressed if you have a high iq. When people with depression and high iq's get treatment, usually their lives get better and their iq's never go down. ...Read more
Suicide is prevelant: Individuals with asperger's or autism are vulnerable to suicide if they feel rejected, isolated from others, and their self esteem is low. In my opinion, the brighter and the more aware they are about their difficulties (in particular socially) the more vulnerable they are to have depression; the more depressed they are the higher the probability for suicidal ideation. ...Read more
70%: A whopping 70 percent of american kids aren't getting enough vitamin d, and such youngsters tend to have higher blood pressure and lower levels of good cholesterol than their peers, according to two new studies published august 2009 in the journal pediatrics. Low vitamin d levels also may increase a child's risk of developing heart disease later in life, experts say. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Depends: With proper assessment tools and teacher observations, only real add kids are treated.If your practitioner does not do any formal assessment of the child before starting the drug (some don't) it can happen. But that comes from the laziness and undisciplined practices of that doctor and is hard to quantify. ...Read more
Is there a higher incidence of shopping addiction in people who are learning disabled with impulse control issues?
Watch the child: Red flags: lack of or regression of language development, lack of pointing to objects, lack of eye contact, doesn't play with toys in a 'typical fashion'. More obsessed with the parts of toys (eg wheels) than the toy itself. Intense interest in certain objects. Repetative movements, toe walking, lack or normal bowel movements (either too loose or too hard, or alternating). None for sure, . ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Possibly: Why certain people develop ptsd and others don't isn't clear. There is agreement that children subjected to traumatic life situations and experiences are more likely to wind up being put up for adoption. That may fuel the "common wisdom" that adopted children have a higher rate of ptsd than other children. If true it's most likely that trauma prior to adoption is to blame. Comorbidity exists also. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Why do you ask?: No one knows what asperger's really is and there's no reliable way of spotting it. What I do know is that people of any age who are stigmatized as "weird" and mistreated as a result by parents or peers are at much greater risk. Asperger's offers some tremendous advantages; being taught people skills, getting into a strength sport ; succeeding in an "aspie" career are life-savers. ...Read more
Not Normally: I am not aware of any such research that would support that hypothesis. Individuals with asperger's disorder do not display any cognitive impairments and while they are speaking may be for a formalized, it does not necessarily mean they are themselves highly intelligent tend to be fairly intelligent. ...Read more
Moderate: I am not sure that there is any published data on the incidence of restrictive lung disease. With rising obesity rates in the us there has been an increase in the prevalence of airflow restriction. Obesity limits the ability of the diaphragm to contract and keeps the total lung capacity low. ...Read more
3 of 4 of my children have Low Hemoglobin, Hematocrit, MCV, MCVH....High RDW. I believe that affect their education performance and behavior.
Maybe,maybe not: The levels needed to interfere with performance vary with the skill set being reviewed. Many with minor hemoglobin defects have lower values than the norm for their lifetime and function quite well.Lead poisoning can also cause lower values, but it is the lead, not the blood cells that cause impairments.In short, your statement provides nonspecific data so a more specific answer is not possible. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
No: I'm not aware of any data on this, but in general individuals with ASD are less likely to be risk-takers, more likely to be under the watchful eye of an adult, and less likely to congregate unsupervised with peers who are experimenting with substances of abuse. Among my fairly substantial patient population, i've not seen any problems, even with marijuana. ...Read more
A partial list: First, adhd is highly heritable, so having a parent or sibling who has adhd or a family history of adhd is the most common set-up. Then comes prematurity; the smaller the baby, the higher the risk of adhd. Many genetic syndromes are associated with with adhd, giving researchers the opportunity to look at the genes involved with adhd. Less common are brain infections or injuries. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly: Newer studies show that ~ 30% of younger siblings of a child with autism display autistic behaviors early on. Of these ~ 40% are eventually diagnosed with autism, but many of the others have developmental language disorders. It is worth getting the little one evaluated & into early intervention services to re-direct that developmental path as much as possible. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

There are no scientific studies to show the percentage of adults with PTSD due to abuse as children See a Psychiatrist for Therapy and Medication ...Read more
Eating disorders: Hard to answer as there are few studies, but the prevalence rate for anorexia nervosa is 0.3% and the prevalence rates for bulimia nervosa are 1% and 0.1% for young women and young men. Since roughly 30% of our population is obese, it would suggest that a relatively small number have eating disorders, though this isn't accurate since many have undiagnosed eating disorders. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
