Welcome to eatlikeathena, I will be talking about Behavioral Disorders in Children, and why it is very important to me
Emotional stress can prove to be real when a child is diagnosed with a behavioral disorder in a family. How parents react to this situation really affects the child’s ability to improve on the treatment plan selected through either medication or therapeutic sessions.The study of the limbic system and the prefrontal cortex where reasoning, self-control emotional reactions get processed is very vital before any treatment plan.
A well regulated and balanced mental process has positive impacts on the words and emotions of both the children and adults. Different methods such as semi-structured interviews and psychological tests may be used to diagnose and treat different behavioral disorders in children. This enables the therapists to understand these conditions and provide solutions on the basis of evidence. Different programs in Toronto such as the Maxi Mind Training System help in giving better solutions to these conditions.
The Sanfilippo syndrome is a genetic condition which causes a fatal brain damage in childhood. Children may experience loss of mobility, seizures, sleeplessness, loss of speech and cognitive skills, dementia and ultimately death due to progressive damage to the brain. Currently, there is no cure or treatment available for the people diagnosed with the disease.
Language impairment may impact negatively on the behavior and communication of the child. Attention should be paid during screening for this kind of disorder in order to help the parents understand how to handle the situation effectively. This is because both the identified and unsuspected language impairments may be associated with the attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
In conclusion, involving parents in the treatment programs has a positive outcome as compared to sessions where parents are less frequently involved. This is drawn from series of sessions where the child’s depression, coping strategies and anxiety were assessed before beginning the treatment and after the treatment sessions.
