What Is Mean Iq For Someone With Cp
Anything possible: Cerebral palsy can range from very severe physical and mental effects (quadruplegia & inability to communicate) to minimal local motor effects (one body part paralyzed or weakened) without any mental effects; there is no "average." I have known people with CP who are successful & happy doctors, professors, scientists, writers, musicians, artisits, spouses and parents. Accept no limits. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Im under chronic stress all the time, I am 18 years old. And have a lot of issues. Does this mean that my IQ will be dropping?
Not permanently: High stress can impair memory & concentration so you might perform less well on an iq test taken when stressed, but it should not permanently impair your intelligence. It is important to take steps to manage your stress, like exercise, adequate sleep, meditation, counseling & healthy diet. Supplements can help too, esp. B complex, vit c, magnesium, ashwagandha, rhodiola & cordyceps. Good luck! ...Read more
What happens if sodium valproate lowers a fetuses IQ does it mean it lowers my own when I take it?
No: The fetal nervous system is developing and there are many medications that are harmful for the fetus that are fine for an adult. Valproate (Depakote) should never be given to pregnant women due to the possibility of neural tube defects such as spina bifida and other disorders. Valproate does have side effects for adults but lower IQ is not one of them. ...Read more

Valproate Sodium: There is no evidence that valproate sodium decrease fetal IQ. When administered in pregnancy, there is a risk of fetal malformations: spina bifida, epicanthal folds, flat nasal bridge, small upturned nose, long philtrum, and thin upper lip.

I took an iq test, I was 20 years old.I took the iq test at a mental hospital. I had a iq of 77. What does this mean?
Validity: A simple traditional IQ test would be insufficient to truly gauge your intellectual capacity. On a Wechsler-Bellevue scale your number would be below average, but not knowing the hospital scale, or accuracy of the test, cannot assume any significance. You could have your records reviewed by a psychologist or psychiatrist for a much better assessment. ...Read more
Ignorance: Ignorance is probably the best answer. Because people with CP may talk or walk differently the assumption usually is that they are not as intelligent. While some people with CP do have lower iqs and learning problems this is by no means the rule. ...Read more
IQ tests are well-: validated instruments with built-in measures for the range of scores that a person could achieve on any given day. Tests must be appropriate; e.g. motor impairment may lower a score on non-verbal IQ tests with timed motor tasks. Deafness may require a test with no language component, like the Leiter-3. The Differential Abilities Scale is often used for kids with known developmental disabilities. ...Read more
Yes: There is evidence that brain training exercises can modestly increase intelligence quotient. A recent study training patients to experience synesthesia demonstrated increase in IQ for those completing the training. In 2008 the PNAS published data suggesting there are ways to increase fluid intelligence by training working memory.http://www.pnas.org/content/105/19/6791.full ...Read more
IQ: Adequate amounts of restful and restorative sleep, a healthy diet with fresh veggies, fruits and whole grains, and regular daily exercise. Reading and discussing books, taking an adult education course at a local community college, all help.

Yes, but...: There is a common misperception that one's score on an IQ test infallibly tells how bright you are. Tests designed to measure one's intelligence rely on standardized administration of specific questions. If you've somehow been told the right answers in advance, you can score quite high on the test. That, sadly, does not mean your IQ is higher. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I don't understand: I don't understand your question. Can you be more clear? Are you talking about head injury or other neurological damage? Are you talking about a change in your ability to understand ideas? You should see a doctor if you have noticed a difference in your mental status. ...Read more
Mismeasure: Iq isn't worth measuring. The old tests were a good estimate of future academic performance, little else. Who cares? Steve gould's "mismeasure of man" is a good read about this old fad. Focus on working hard ; working smart in a complicated world where no two people have the same natural talents and many types of intelligence bring rewards. Best wishes. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Although adjustments for wealth & socioeconomic status were taken into account, cause-and-effect were not proven, as other factors like parental IQ were not factored in. ...Read more
Intelligent, emotion: Iq, or intelligence quotient, is a measure of how quickly and accurately a person processes complex information and cognitive tasks. Eq, or emotional iq, is a term to describe how sensitive someone is to the feelings and reactions of other people that they are interacting with. There is no correlation between the two: someone can be book-smart but insensitive, or not very bright, but compassionate. ...Read more
Old debate: Iq is a combination of the inherited potential capacity combined with the proper environment to nurture that capacity. You cannot control the inheritance but you can optimize the nurture aspect with diet, constant use of brain stimulating factors such as lifelong learning, reading, puzzle performance, learning a foreign language and so on. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
