With difficulty!: It would be very difficult for any teacher to be severely autistic.

How do I help a 10 year old child cope with the death his school teacher?

How do I help a 10 year old child cope with the death his school teacher?

Simple is best: The 10yo's past experience with pets or bugs gives them a basic understanding of the physical reality of death. Since their thinking processes won't begin to embrace advanced thinking until well into the teens, you need to stay with simple. Instead of trying to provide an elaborate discussion of heaven or eternal love, provide an open invitation to ask questions. Kids will come back again & again. ...Read more

My son is 5, 2nd wk of kindergarden, refusal to go, kicked/screamed/hit teachers trying to help. Hx: spd; what to do?

Talk with teacher: If your child is having trouble separating, have a talk with your child's teacher (or the school counselor) and come up with a plan. It's pretty common. Most teachers have a system for gradual separation- shorter goodbyes, distraction to other activities, having a familiar item, some positive reinforcement for appropriate behavior. You may need to talk with a therapist if things don't improve. ...Read more

My psych teacher said people with anxiety have a sensitive nervous system and are more sensitive to medicine. It seems true for me. Is this true?

Not necessarily: I personally have not found that to be true. It depends on medication and circumstance. In some cases, the anxiety disorder has made the person more difficult to treat and has required higher doses of some medications to achieve the desired effect. And I don't know what your psych teacher means by "sensitive nervous system". That term has no real meaning. ...Read more

In medical school, how many students are there in a class? Can you ask questions during a class? And do you have a separate teacher to help you?

It varies a lot: Some of the basic science courses in medical school are taught to the entire class at the same time in a large auditorium. Others are in small groups of ten or so. In these classes there is a lot of give and take between the students and instructor. In my experience, questions were always encouraged and generally, the better the teacher, the more questions that are asked. ...Read more

Would like resources in understanding how being abused for a year by a teacher shaped my adult personality. Looking for personal insight/per. Growth.?

Break the cycle: Abusers are often survivors of abuse themselves. You cannot change what happened in the past, but you can change how you interpret what happened, and you can change your present interactions with others. You need to break the cycle of abuse, which can manifest in many ways, including your personality. Joining a support group, seeing a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist may help. ...Read more
